  2. There is power in making people laugh. It lies in giving people a few moments of undiluted bliss, which is enough to make them lose sight of the anxiety that cripples their sense of the future, and lifts the weight of stress and expectations they battle on a daily basis. The power inherent in making thousands of people double over and laugh out loud without a care in the world using only a few words, should make anybody feel like a king who has made the greatest conquest that there is. © MensXP 24-year-old internet celebrity Bhuvan Bam happens to be one such laughter king, who does more than making people laugh. Yes, he tickles our funny bones, but he also takes our brains for a spin and makes us think through his sketches and jokes. It is common news that Bhuvan's 'BB Ki Vines' is became an absolute show stealer one day suddenly and there was no looking back. It rightly put him on the map as one of India's best YouTubers in recent times, and soon he turned into one of GenY's most beloved entertainers whose sketches and performances have been cracking them up for the longest time. © MensXP However, long before it all started, Bhuvan was more invested in singing and making it as a singer performing for thousands of screaming fans and creating music topped his chart until 'BB Ki Vines' happened out of nowhere, and changed his life forever. He had had a very average middle-class childhood, with average academic achievements, but that didn't stop him from getting a bachelor's degree in History from University of Delhi. But 'BB Ki Vines' looked beyond his academic performances, and once it took off like it did, there was no looking back. © MensXP Yet, his parents still urge him to shift gears into a more conventional career, a very middle-class approach to “kid's future”, and suggest that he sit for banking exams and the likes. But what they didn't understand initially was that the kind of fame and money their son was about to get through his Vines on YouTube. That happened when Bhuvan's 'Valentine's Week Hutiyapa' went viral on social media in 2016 and shook Bhuvan's life. However, much before India began appreciating Bhuvan's Vines, he had already made it in Pakistan when one of his videos that hit 1 million was shared extensively in Karachi, making up a ratio of 9:1 to India. © MensXP Over time, he began monetising his YouTube videos, and the first cheque changed how his parents saw his 'hobby'. Yet, Bhuvan believes that though 'BB Ki Vines' has become a brand now, Bhuvan Bam still has to go a long way to become a brand as big and as successful as 'BB Ki vines'. His only strategy all this while has been to make good content that attracts people and thereby brands too. He believes that, “If people love actually love you, they will stay”. For all other things, he appreciates his struggles. He looks forward to the writer's block every now and then because it allows him to gain clarity and approach his content with more sincerity. © MensXP His content ranges across the board but many of them come with a message and those are his favourite. But one interaction with a fan, who had been hospitalised and refused to eat or talk for days, finally made him come face to face with the kind of impact he was having on people. The female fan not only spoke to him after days of staying quiet, but also began getting better after meeting her fave celeb Bhuvan. © MensXP This changed Bhuvan's outlook altogether and he decided to spread the positivity forward, and reach people by bringing happiness into his audiences' lives. And all he has to say to aspiring content creators in the country, “go with it. Please karo, hoga. Don't think so many others are doing it, what difference will I make. Even if you fail, keep at it. Do it once, twice or thrice. If that doesn't work, do something else. But do it. If you don't go ahead with it, you'll regret it later. “Kaash” nahi karna kabhi life mein.” Learn more about Bhuvan's journey, business strategy and behind the scene deets as he speaks to MensXP about his journey here.

  4. The recent Ethiopian Airlines crash has once again put the Boeing MAX 8 aircraft in the spotlight. Just five months ago, another MAX 8 being operated by Lion Air crashed, taking the total toll to 346. Aviation is statistically the safest mode of transport, and two crashes within such a short period are alarming. Following the crash, more than 40 countries have grounded the aircraft until further investigations are carried out and changes are made. India's DGCA has also grounded the aircraft and currently Spicejet and Jet Airways operate the plane. With more than 400 aircrafts on order from Indian carriers, the MAX 8 plays a pivotal role in boosting India's aviation market. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter Boeing's MAX series is the successor of 737 Next Generation family (737-700/800/900), and the company is relying on it to churn out profits. Even Boeing has been making aircraft for decades, and its expertise is often unmatched. So, the only question that arises is, how can a modern airliner be this unsafe? The MAX series was Boeing's response to Airbus's A320 NEO family. NEO stands for New Engine Option and while the fuselage remains unchanged, the engines are completely revamped to offer better-operating efficiency. Regional airlines worldwide require planes that are cheaper to operate, especially when aviation fuel is extremely dynamic globally. To compete with the NEO, Boeing started the MAX series and offered up to 14 percent more efficient engines along with increased cabin comfort. But, this came with a small challenge. © Boeing The Ethiopian crash investigation will take months to conclude, but initial data suggest striking similarity between the two crashes. The preliminary report on Lion Air crash is out, and we'll be relying on it to understand MAX 8's major flaw. The MAX 8 is powered by CFM's Leap 1B engines and they are significantly bigger than the previous CFM 56 engines (used in the 737 NG). Adding to this, the 737 was designed decades back and has an exceedingly low ground clearance when compared to the A320. To perfectly fit the new heavier and bigger engines, Boeing had to make minor changes in the design ranging from lengthening the landing gear to moving the engine slightly forward. © Aviation International News It was found that the bigger engine meant the plane handled certain situations differently and there was also a slight shift in the centre of gravity. The relocation and new engine design created an upward movement, nudging the plane's nose upwards. If the nose is lifted sharply, the plane will continue gaining altitude and could also stall mid-air. A stall is when an aeroplane cannot generate enough lift to continue flying. To compensate this upward movement, Boeing added a new system called MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) that prevented the plane from raising its noise to extreme levels. The system would automatically adjust the horizontal stabilizer and bring down the nose. To make these adjustments, MCAS relies on data from the Angle of Attack sensors. © Wikimedia (AoA sensor for reference) These sensors are located on the nose of the aircraft and calculate the angle at which the plane is climbing or descending in comparison to the oncoming air. In the case of Lion Air, faulty sensors triggered the MCAS and automatically the system tried to bring the nose down. According to the flight data recorder, automated MCAS repeatedly pushed the plane's nose down following take-off. The most surprising part of the MCAS though is Boeing hasn't mentioned the addition of this system during pilot training or manuals. This meant the pilot were unaware that a programmed system is trying to bring down the nose. Even if the pilots tried to takeover manual controls, MCAS cannot be simply stopped by moving the yoke. They need to manually trim the aircraft to gain control, but how will they know this procedure when the existence of MCAS is unknown to them? © Reuters The Lion Air pilot had more than 5,000 hours of experience and the Ethiopian pilot had more than 8,000 hours. Preliminary reports do not point towards any kind of crew error. Reports say pilots have in the past complained about a similar nose-down anomaly in FAA's database (US regulator) as well. Following the Lion Air crash, Boeing issued a bulletin to airlines operating the 737 MAX 8 advising pilots how to override the MCAS system. This week, the plane maker also announced it's working on a long-term plan to rejig the system and update shall be applied in the coming months. © Reuters We'll have to wait for the Ethiopian crash report to clear the air whether it was the same MCAS issue that caused the incident, or are there any other flaws in the airliner. Boeing has described the MAX series as its fastest-selling family of planes, with more than 5,000 orders placed to date from about 100 customers. The last time an aircraft suffered successive fatal incidents was the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 in the 70s.

  5. Every year, OnePlus comes up with a new version of OxygenOS with some not-so-major tweaks. On the same lines, OnePlus is now building a new version of the software, and it's time for us to see what it may look like. The winner of OnePlus' Product Manager Challenge, Léandro Tijink, submitted some amazing renders, showing an entirely new UI and improved UX of OxygenOS. As a part of the prize for the challenge, OnePlus pledged to implement his ideas into a future version of OxygenOS. So let's take a look at some of his ideas - New & Improved Setup Menu Currently, the setup menu of OxygenOS is more or less identical to stock Android's setup menu. It looks very basic at the moment, but Tijink's design focuses on improvements to make it look more welcoming. The design, as you can see, lets you see more languages, gives you the ability to set the system-wide accent colour, and more. Take a look - © Léandro Tijink A Better Ambient Display & Lock Screen The ambient display will give you the basic information like the time, date, and notifications, and you can tap the display to get more info associated with each notification. The ambient display will also wake up to show new notifications, however, everything else will remain hidden. © Léandro Tijink As for the lock screen, there aren't a lot of changes, but there are a lot of rounded edges. It hasn't been changed all that much, and it's probably because it wasn't too bad, to begin with. OnePlus Launcher & Other Changes OnePlus Shelf, which comes as a part of the default launcher, can turn out to be very productive if used properly. Well, Tijink design imagines that space to be a lot more efficient, and hey, he made it look good at the same time. Who wouldn't want an AMOLED black mode for the shelf? Other aspects of the OxygenOS launcher also appear to be tweaked. Things like the app drawer, hidden space, and all the first-party apps have been made to look consistent with the rest of the system. © Léandro Tijink As of now, it's hard to tell which of Tijink's ideas will be implemented but OnePlus did say that it will consider Tijink's vision and add them in the future version of OxygenOS. These renders look amazing and it would be interesting to see the ones which OnePlus decides to pick. You can head over to Tijink's custom page to check out all his renders.
  6. Google is exploring the idea of launching a new game streaming service later this month at a Game Developers Conference presentation. We were already pretty pumped about this rumored game streaming service, but a new patent design, which shows us what Google's first controller may look like, has gotten us even more excited. © USPTO Google's patent application, as you can see, shows us the design of the controller. The patent itself is for a notification system for the controller that notifies you when, say, a game is available or when you've received an invitation. It looks like the controller can also store your account and host settings like brightness, in-game volume, and more. The illustrations don't give out much, but you can clearly see its design, complete with a dual-joystick setup, trigger buttons and more. We can also spot what appears to be a microphone button, which means we could see some sort of assistant compatibility. Also, the folks over at Yankodesign have created a series of renders based off the patent illustrations, and it looks really cool. Here, check it out: © Yankodesign It's worth pointing out that it's just a render, and the final product may look different than what you see here. Google is expected to reveal more info about its game streaming service as well as the controller at the Game Developers Conference on March 19th, so keep your eyes peeled. Source: USPTO
  7. Samsung announced the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e in India today, which are finally available to purchase in the country. It is one of the best Android flagship devices you can buy in India right now and you can read our official review here. © Youtube/Samsung India The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus come with a great triple camera setup where one of the lenses is an optically stabilised 12-megapixel main sensor with a dual aperture that can switch between f/1.5 for night shots and f/2.4 for the day. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor that lets you capture more field of view and lastly a stabilised 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. © Samsung However, the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus comes with some nifty features such as a “Live Focus” mode which lets users take portrait images. You can adjust the blur after taking images and even add some awesome effects such as spin, colour point and others. The Galaxy S10 camera also has other intelligent features that let users optimise the scene and get on-screen guides to help users line up great shots. These features make it easier for casual users to take professional level looking images (or so they say). © Samsung However, at the launch event today, Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President of Samsung India said that many of these camera features were developed by engineers in India at Samsung's Bangalore R&D institute. “Over 500 engineers from India worked day and night to design and deliver a superlative camera experience on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus,” Singh said, adding that features like 'Scene Optimiser', 'Live Focus', and AR Emoji are just some of the few cameras features that are “made for the world, right here in India”. © Samsung Samsung has already opened the world's largest mobile phone factory in India and is deeply invested in the 'Make in India' program. It's part of the reason why Samsung enjoys competitive pricing due to local manufacturing. Samsung India is also working on a new and improved version of Bixby Vision for Indian customers, where users will be able to “try and buy” clothes thanks to a local partnership with Myntra. Bixby Vision will also let Indian users find nearby restaurants by simply pointing the camera at a street. This is possible due to Samsung's partnership with Magicpin to provide users with live information on local interest points.
  8. The fitness industry is booming and along with it, there are a number of fitness expos held across the country. With these tens of expos, there are at least twenty different bodybuilding shows that happen every year. Every passing year, the number of federations or competitions is increasing as a lot of youngsters want to become bodybuilders. Competing in a bodybuilding show is not wrong, but it is important for you to know a few things before you consider stepping on that stage: 1. It Will Take A Lot More Than Just Having Abs These days, anyone who has abs thinks they are meant for the bodybuilding stage. The fact is, 90 per cent of them are not. Having abs or being lean vs. being shredded are two different things. Bodybuilding means having great overall muscularity, having a balanced physique, being presentable, and being shredded. Just because you have abs does not mean you have to be on stage. If you want to compete, ensure that you have all of the above things to stand a chance. 2. The Prep Sucks Bodybuilding prep is not easy. There will be times you are angry, frustrated, hungry, and exhausted. There will be days where you will not even feel like moving from your bed too. There will be cravings. But these are the times you will have to suck it up and do what needs to be done. It is mentally stressful and can even affect your relationships. So, if you are not in a place to handle all these other pressures, doing a show may end up being one of the worst decisions of your life. © Unsplash 3. There Will Be A Lot Of Fake Natties 'Natural bodybuilding' has either become an elite thing or a joke. I honestly cannot decide. I leave it up to you. The reason I say this is because there are shows that claim to be 'natural' for aspiring natural bodybuilders, however, they are anything but natural. Just having the tag 'natural' after the show's name does not mean jack! Natural federations check their athletes thoroughly and randomly throughout the year. The shows held here in India do not do anything of the sort and are often seen firing the promoters the next year as the 'promoter' tested positive for drugs. 4. You Will Be Forgotten Most of the bodybuilding shows in India are just businesses. Every year, three to five new bodybuilding shows are introduced. They make new promises and take higher entry fees every passing year. You pay it, you get done, and that is that. Hardly are there good prizes in most shows and competitors are rising by the 100s every year. Even if you win a show, there is a great chance that nobody will remember you the next year, unless you are competing at a very high level. The entry level or novice shows are hardly remembered or even cared about. © Pixabay 5. Politics Exists In bodybuilding shows, you will fight politics at every level between federations, between promoters, between judges! I have personally seen competitors winning shows where they outright ignored judging calls and should have been disqualified within a minute of stepping on stage. I have seen the best guy not placing even in the top 5. Now, this would be a personal bias but you could check it out when you go and watch a show. The politics is real and even if you end up being the best athlete, there is a good chance you are going home empty handed. So ask yourself the question, is all of this worth competing in a show? If your answer is still yes, you should totally do a show.

  9. Ever since the deadly Pulwama terror attack by JeM that took the lives of over 40 CRPF soldiers on Valentine's Day last month, the cricketing fraternity in India has had varying opinions about the Board of Cricket Control in India's (BCCI) decision to plea to the other member nations of the International Cricket Council or the ICC to “sever ties with the nation from which terrorism emanates”. In other words, the BCCI wanted to boycott the Pakistan cricket team during the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in London and Wales as a means to show their protest against terrorism. I'm boycotting today's #IndvAus ODI to protest the BCCI pestering the ICC to ban Pakistan from the World Cup — Dennis Universe Boss (@DennisCricket_) March 2, 2019 A number of cricketing legends such as Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh were openly advocating this move while there were others such as Sunil Gavaskar and Indian master blaster Sachin Tendulkar who instead thought that competing and beating Pakistan on the biggest platform of the game would be the most impactful response. However, during the quarterly ICC meet in Dubai, when BCCI CEO Rahul Johri raised the issue to be discussed formally, ICC chairman Shashank Manohar refused to pay heed to the topic saying that the council did not enjoy the authority to 'isolate' Pakistan because it continues to be one of the permanent members of the Council. Amid India-Pak World Cup clash uncertainty, BCCI to discuss ICC's stand on terrorism pic.twitter.com/Gex2n2PS0v — Mukesh Rajpoot (@MukeshR43127690) March 4, 2019 So, the most pertinent question here is, now what?. The decision of forfeiting from the contest against Pakistan now rests completely in the hands of the BCCI. The two cricketing titans are scheduled to go head to head during the point round on 16th June 2019 and even if India decides to not show up for the match and Pakistan wins by default, it will have little to no harm on India's chances at qualifying for the knockout rounds. However, the real issue arises if and when the two rivals meet again during the semis or worse yet, the World Cup final. Is India ready to give up on all those players who only want to lift the trophy and have been dreaming about this day ever since they were kids? Alternatively, will they just look over the agenda and face them? The kind of heat the BCCI will face from those who share Ganguly and Singh's vision, will then be extremely difficult to deal with the Indian Cricket Board. Yes, India has been wronged, time and again, as terrorism has been inflicted on our sovereign land and the perpetrators are all around us, but when politics get involved with sports, the outcome, more often than not, is ugly.
  10. It's never too late for anyone to follow their dreams. India's Mohammed Shami has proven that to be a true as he has made a historic return to the Indian cricket team after more than a year and a half and has flourished against the toughest of rivals the Men in Blue have gone against ever since. The year 2018 was extremely tough on the Indian pacer had he was not only on his way to recovering from a career-threatening knee injury but was also being slammed by the media and the judicial system for the ugly divorce case was he going through. For an athlete, the mental impact of an injury as severe as Shami's can be a lot more devastating than the physical damage. Add to that the constant stress of the infamous case being broadcasted nationwide and the results can be beyond repairable. Thankfully for Mohammed Shami, who not only won the case against his ex-wife but also was able to make a fantastic comeback, overcame the demons in his head and now is one of the more dependable bowlers for the Indian roster who has a great chance of getting a berth in the World Cup roster. But what led to the heroic comeback of the pacer? According to his interview with India Today, Shami was able to return to his glory days because of the sudden change in the culture of the team. “The fitness awakening that we have had has had a huge impact on me. I looked at others and worked on my game. I have enjoyed it fully. The fitness culture that we have in our team is amazing, you cannot even think about it,” said the cricketer. Taking inspiration from the more athletic teammates with the likes of Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, Shami, who had failed the famous 'Yo-Yo' fitness test last year, not only passed by also became one of the top performers ahead of India's long multi-national tour began in late 2018, according to the team's head coach, Ravi Shastri. In the series against Australia and New Zealand, Shami was not only one of the most successful Indian bowlers but also became the fastest Indian bowler to take 100 ODI wickets (56 matches) breaking Irfan Pathan's record of 59 matches. 100 ODI wickets and counting for @MdShami11 ðð#TeamIndia #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/3RVvthg1CH — BCCI (@BCCI) January 23, 2019 “I am thankful to God that I have been able to make this record. There are many reasons behind it. Biggest is the unbelievably brilliant atmosphere in the dressing room, followed by the confidence that I have in ability right now and also the things that I continue to learn from our coaches,” said Shami. “Everything has contributed and combined to take me to the another level. There are many minute things which bring in a lot of confidence and help us to get into the rhythm. For instance, not just on the ground, have a look at the way we (Indian players) treat each other off the field too. We enjoy every little thing. This helps a great deal,” said Shami. Shami is named for the final squad for the five-match ODI series against Australia and will also be playing for King XI Punjab in the 12th edition of the Indian Primier League (IPL) this season.
  11. NASCAR races are extremely fun to watch. The sight of sports cars covered in sponsored logos just whizzing past in a split of a second, the sound of engines working on overload combined with the smell of burning tyres grinding against asphalt just gives a rush of adrenaline to the viewer. What makes the sport so exciting, rather nerve-wracking, is the fear of a blunder that could take place even with the slightest of nudges between the races that are going at 320 kph. Car crashes are pretty common in racing events, much like NASCAR Daytona 500 which produced one of the biggest collisions in the history of the sport. When driver Paul Menard tried to do a 'bump and run' around Matt DiBenedetto's car number 95, he nudged the rear passenger side of DiBenedetto's ride resulting in it to spin out in the middle of the race track while knocking out 17 cars in his way with the race in its last leg. Although nobody got injured during the crash, which is miraculous to say the least and Menard took complete responsibility for the entire incident, what prepares a race driver's psyche to take the hit during the smash is worth talking about. In an interview with Tampa Bay Times, NASCAR driver and one of the sufferers of the Daytona crash, Aric Almirola shares his experience. “At a certain point in the wreck, you're just kind of along for the ride. The initial instinct is to try to drive the car and avoid the wreck. Once you know that you're in the wreck, you kind of just brace for impact,” said the driver. “A lot of people take their hands off the steering wheel, but that is very unnatural for me. I keep my hands on the steering wheel. I kind of lock my elbow in and just, everything tenses up and tightens up and you brace for impact.” Amongst the first cars to get involved in the chain reaction that Menard had started, Almirola's ride (# 10) got tagged behind car #12 and almost did a somersault. Due to the momentum of the drag in favour of the car, Almirola stayed on his wheels and didn't turn over. © NASCAR In totality, the crash led to wrecking 21 cars (almost half of the contestants) but luckily not a single driver got injured. Obviously, it wasn't long before people took to Twitter to show their concerns towards the mishap and the safety of the racers: This still amazes me how big this crash was even for Daytona #NASCAR #Daytona500 pic.twitter.com/Shh7tLzp0c — Penske17 (@Penske_17) February 20, 2019 Now that's a nasty crash... #Daytona — Steve Twynstra (@SteveTwynstra) February 17, 2019 The biggest Daytona 500 crash of the whole night!!! pic.twitter.com/dvYojiuAzG — Gameoholic1994 (@gameoholic1994) February 17, 2019 Daytona 500.

  12. The Pulwama terror attack has shaken the entire nation but the ones most affected by the consequences are the ones who lost their loved ones in the attack. Over 40 CRPF jawans were martyred and while everyone can understand the magnitude of the loss, we cannot fathom the endurance that their families have to cope with the death of their lost loved one. © Twitter Major Vibhuti Dhoundiyal, who hailed from Dehradun, lost his life in a recent encounter with terrorists in Pulwama and his mortal remains were brought to his family in his hometown for cremation. It is not the full military honours that he got or the presence of his family that painted a painstaking picture, but the sheer courage that his wife showed to pay him a tribute before his heavenly abode, is what gave us goosebumps. #WATCH Wife of Major VS Dhoundiyal (who lost his life in an encounter in Pulwama yesterday) by his mortal remains. #Dehradun #Uttarakhand pic.twitter.com/5HWD6RXwnO — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 Major Vibhuti's wife Nikita showed nerves of steel as she maintained her calm and whispered 'I love you' to him and gave him a flying kiss, while not shedding a single tear. The couple married last year in April 2018 and Major Vibhuti was bound to return home in April for their first anniversary. Before his remains were cremated, his wife bravely and proudly shouted 'Jain Hind' before breaking down as she cried 'I love you' to her brave husband.

While these visuals will remain etched in our hearts for a long time, we can't help but wonder that we don't know what courage or real bravery is until we have seen someone display it as Nikita did. She is a woman of steel and will continue to inspire us with her undying spirit.
  13. While it's safe to say that an average man is most likely to sport a printed shirt just on a tropical getaway, a recent trend boost may make you think twice. Over the last couple of years, prints on men have been making their way to the mainstream fashion world. Ranveer Singh may be the king of prints, but that doesn't mean prints have to be as maximal as he is. As more and more men embrace this trend, there is a whole world of possibilities emerging with this look. Prints can add a whole new level of edge and make your basic outfit exciting. Here's a definitive guide on what pants to wear with all kinds of printed shirts: 1. Minimal Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not all prints have to draw attention, you can go classic with paisley, gingham or polka dots. A printed shirt can even elevate a basic jeans and sneakers look, if styled well. If you're opting for print for the first time, go easy on the colour scheme. © instagram @ishabhansali Keeping it monotone and building your outfit around one colour is advisable. Keep the accessories and layers basic with either black or brown when it comes to formal wear. For casual, a basic white or black jacket and white sneakers should do your outfit justice in the most minimal way possible. 2. Hawaiian Print © instagram @diljitdosanjh Just because Hawaiian shirts are associated with being on a holiday doesn't mean these babies can't be rocked all-year round. As prints go for a modern upgrade, so do the age-old classics. Major fashion houses took a spin on Hawaiian shirts in grown-up colour schemes of black, forest green, and sand offset by pops of colour making it super trendy. © instagram @naheedee Choose a Hawaiian shirt in a slim cut, contrary to the older boxier version for a more structured fit. Pair your shirt with chinos and oxford boots for a spin on casual Friday or well-fitted jeans and sneakers for a relaxed fit. Evoke holiday vibes all through the year! 3. Floral Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not everyone dares to pull off this supposedly 'feminine' print, but it's 2019 and we need to get over these outdated gender norms for good. One can rock a floral printed shirt with a pair of rugged denims or shorts and sneakers for a casual brunch look or pair it with a solid coloured suit for understated elegance. © grazia If you can't find any other way to pair your floral shirt, black jeans will be your saviour. It's also important to pair the textures right in terms of look and feel. For example, a shiny or leather bottom won't flatter a cotton dress shirt. Go for a smaller print size or minimal colour scheme if you are a little hesitant to wear bright florals. Your style will blossom, anyway! 4. Animal Print © viral bhayani When we say animal print, Ranveer Singh's all leopard print suit comes to mind, doesn't it? As daring as it was, pulling off animal print doesn't have to be a very difficult task. Considering that these animal prints are super bold, it's best to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Sticking to basic silhouettes and pieces like chinos, classic denims and blazers are key to make your shirt the centre of attention. © instagram @ishabhansali For an understated yet classy way to pull off animal print, opt for monotone prints like zebra and pair with bold solid coloured separates. This contrast will definitely act as a welcome change from your usual take on animal print, which mostly involves warmer tones. Now go out there and rock prints like a pro!
  14. Is there a better way of finding out what women want than asking them? No, there isn't. That's why we decided to ask women in 2019 what they want from men.
  15. If you've watched 'Gully Boy' then you already know who we are talking about and in case you haven't watched the superb movie yet, chances are that you've surely heard this name and how his acting is rock solid in the movie.

  16. Denim: every man's go-to piece of clothing which sticks with them season after season. We rely on our trusted denims far too much, thinking we can never go wrong with styling them. Even the most versatile piece of clothing can go wrong if you don't match the shades right. As denims come in various colors and washes, it is essential to know what textures and shades to sport with every kind. Fret not, for we have put together guidelines on what to wear with the 4 most common shades of jeans available. Take a look and thank us later. 1. Light Wash Jeans © vickykaushal09 Perfect for a day look, light washed denims are definitely a gamble when it comes to matching them right. For an appealing everyday look, go with a basic crew neck tee shirt or a hoodie with white sneakers. Since 90s trends are back, light washed denims are having a moment in the sun. Pair them with contrast coloured uppers such as green, pastels, navy or black. Frayed hem and ripped detailing look super stylish with light washed denims as well. 2. Dark Wash Jeans © ishabhansali For those wondering, this category is only for indigo and charcoal shade of dark denims. Any dark denim which is not black falls under this section. Mostly available in skinny fit and stiffer fabric due to it's nature, dark washed denims are most versatile than other shades in terms of wearability. Go for a blazer or a polo neck tee on top for a business-casual look or pair them up with a checkered shirt. Don't opt anything too form-fitting either. Dark denim is ideal for the much-hyped 'denim on denim' look for which you can opt for a lighter shade of denim on top. Pair these babies up with primary colors, neutrals and prints. 3. White Jeans © theanisha As much as it is really calculated, keeping white jeans clean can be an intimidating task. We can't stop the chutney bowl from spilling for you, but we can sure tell you how to rock white denims. First things first, you should go for an almost white denim, like a cream or stone washed shade instead of pure white as they are fairly easier to maintain laundry wise. White denims act as a great canvas for other colors, textures and even prints. Shades like khakhi, tan, sand and black go really well with the contrast that white bottoms add to the look. 4. Black Jeans © ishabhansali As far as denims go, dark shades go a long way. There's nothing like a black denim to add texture and edge to any casual look. As black is perceived as a going-out shade, black denims switch between casual and party-wear easily. An all-black look is an age old method of pulling this shade off. If you have a particularly fluorescent or primary hued shirt or sweatshirt, team it up with black denims for a fail-safe look. If you're looking to pull off a printed blazer, textured bomber or an tuxedo jacket for a party or business casual look, black denims are your best friend. Pair them up with shades like camel, grey, pastels, primary colors or white for a sure-shot way of looking super fly. Now that you have yourself a fail-safe guide to matching denims, you may thank us.
  17. Ever since its inception, Football as a sport has come a long way and continues to grow. There was a time when scoring 30-40 goals in a single season was considered a Herculean task. But, today, in the ever-competitive era of the sport, footballers are amassing way more goals than their predecessors could've ever imagined. It is true that “a bag of money cannot score a goal”, but you definitely need one to keep the goal-scoring machines (read footballers) who do. Thus, there is no surprise to see football clubs around the globe breaking the bank to secure the services of such phenomenal players and, then, splurging a bit more to keep them happy. With many footballers raking in a lot of cash for their football skills, it's quite difficult to ascertain who earns more and stands supreme in wages. And, that's where the latest list of French publication L'Equipe comes to the rescue. Taking their monthly wages into consideration, the French outlet compiled the list of the top 10 highest-paid footballers in the world and the results are quite astounding. Take a look. 5) Luis Suarez (£2.5million) © Reuters The former Liverpool hitman is probably one of the most natural goal-scorers to have ever graced the game. Luis Suarez certainly reaches that 'third best player in the world' bracket (if there is one) with his natural goal-scoring instincts. Currently plying his trade with Barcelona, the Uruguayan has propelled the Spanish giants to a Champions League title, three La Liga honours and three Copa Del Reys. For a man who has become a vital cog in Barcelona's setup, Suarez bites off (pun intended) £2.5million (almost Rs 23.15 crore) from the Blaugrana's monthly-wage bill. 4) Neymar (£2.7million) © Reuters The Brazilian golden boy, in his early years, was one of the most sought-after talents in the world. It was his early rise that promoted Barcelona to shell out 16-million pounds (approx.) for his services. After a successful spell at Camp Nou, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) came calling and paid a transfer fee of a staggering 195-million pounds, making him the most expensive player in the world with a salary of 2.7-million pounds per month (around Rs 25 crore). 3) Antoine Griezmann (£2.9million) © Reuters Antoine Griezmann was probably one of the unluckiest footballers in 2018 when it came to winning individual honours. Despite winning the World Cup with France and Europa League with Atletico Madrid, the Los Rojiblancos icon was overlooked for the 'Player of the Tournament' in Russia and Ballon d'Or, eventually losing out to midfield genius Luka Modric. The Frenchman might've missed out on the top honours last year, but when it comes to earning big bucks, the Atletico forward is doing alright. After signing a new deal with Atletico recently, Griezmann has occupied the No. 3 spot on the latest list of highest-paid footballers in the world, earning 2.9-million pounds (Rs 27 crore approx.) every month. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo (£4.1million) © Reuters Cristiano Ronaldo is a true icon of the beautiful game. Thus, there is no surprise to see the Portuguese phenom on the second spot (a place he hates the most) when it comes to earning big bucks. The talismanic forward, along with Lionel Messi, has been the most consistent player over the past decade. He scored an unbelievable 311 goals in 292 appearances, winning four Champions League titles during his time with Los Blancos in the Spanish capital. The Italian side, Juventus, came in calling (earlier this year) to secure the services of 34-year-old which surely added to his ever-increasing salary. According to the latest list, he is the second-best paid footballer in the world at a monthly salary of 4.1-million pounds (Rs 38 crore approx.). 1) Lionel Messi (£7.3million) © Reuters Just like the majority of the goal-scoring records, Lionel Messi also tops the list of highest-paid footballers in the world, earning a whopping 7.3-million pounds (Rs 65.5 crore approx.). It's quite surprising to notice that the Argentine bags almost the double of what his arch-nemesis Cristiano earns in a month. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been the force behind the amazing rise of Barcelona since 2004. Messi has powered the Blaugrana to the Champions League title on four occasions. And, in that span, he has gone on to score an unbelievable 404 goals in just 438 appearances. For a man who has continued to shatter one record after another and achieved almost everything there is in the sport over the decade, Messi's monthly wage, irrespective of the fact how ridiculous it already seems, appears a bit low. Considering how hard these men have worked in order to reach where they are today, it doesn't seem fair to calculate their talent in terms of the money they earn. But, that is what they do for a living. For these footballing demi-gods, the saying: "if you're good at something, never do it for free," fits perfectly.
  18. Fashion giant 'Gucci' just got embroiled in a controversy because of selling a rather 'avant-garde' sweater, which has been accused of being racist. Social media users expressed their displeasure because of Gucci's rather in-your-face 'ignorance' that could be clearly seen on the sweater design. Take a look at the controversial sweater here. © Gucci The Balaclava black wool sweater is conspicuous in its own right and covers the wearer's neck and most parts of the lower face. It has a cut-out on the lips, which has been fashioned with a red border, that resembles oversized lips. The sweater costs almost $900 and is supposed to be inspired by vintage ski-masks. People, however, have been trashing the design accusing it of bearing a close resemblance with 'Blackface'. For the uninitiated, Blackface is a form of theatrical make-up used predominantly by non-black performers to represent a caricature of a black person. © Gucci Unfortunately, for Gucci, the timing couldn't have been worse because it's the 'Black History Month', and a move like that just made sure that they have been dragged under the limelight, and not in a good way. Gucci, however, has apologized and has withdrawn the product, as well as taken it off the shelves in their brick and mortar stores. © Twitter Interestingly, Prada had also faced a similar controversy recently, where their range of figurines called the 'Pradamalia' range was accused of bearing a close resemblance with 'monkey-like' figures with large red lips, that also evoked Blackface imagery.
  19. Yes, you read that right. Bollywood's most amazing perfectionist who has established himself as a flawless actor, Pankaj Tripathi is set to appear in a major Hollywood project starring none other than Chris Hemsworth. © Insatgram As previously reported, Chris signed for 'Dhaka' which was filmed across South East Asia, with major chunks being shot in Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Pankaj has reportedly been signed up to play a pivotal role in the movie and joined the crew in Thailand last week for the same. The film will also see Golshifteh Farahani, David Harbour, Randeep Hooda, Manoj Bajpayee play some important roles. The movie is a thriller which is being directed by Sam Hargraves who was the second unit director for the global blockbuster 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The plot of 'Dhaka'is centred on a man trying to save a kidnapped Indian boy from the underbelly of the terror world. Week one down here in India. By far some of the most intense action sequences I've been apart of and the heat certainly adds an edge to it but damn we're getting good stuff!! gonna be unreal. The first shot is of our director, the insanely talented Sam Hargrave ððð¤ð¤ #Netflix pic.twitter.com/Ws04AwrID1 — Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) November 7, 2018 Recently it was announced that Pankaj will also be joining the cast of Ranveer Singh-Ammy Virk starrer '83 which will re-live the story of the Indian cricket team winning its first ever World Cup in 1983.

  20. The act of gifting can be a particularly difficult pain in the behind. Especially if you're someone who in spite of trying multiple times, cannot help but stare at failure over and over again. And damn, sitting in the month that celebrates Valentine's Day only makes the pressure worse, doesn't it? But don't fret!

There's nothing more romantic than the sweet sound of your partner reading her favourite book out loud while you're chilling together. Dharma Productions 2. If your girlfriend loves Marvel movies, why not gift her something that has more longevity than comic books. Like a Groot Planter Flower Pot for her to keep on her office desk as a reminder of her love for Marvel and of course, you. Sahil Kedia/MensXP 3. Buying a pair of sunglasses for your girlfriend can be a risky business. With things like face-structure, nose-structure, frame, etc. to keep in mind, you might get that wrong.

Get essential oils, flowers, and candles, and decorate your bathroom to look like an in-house spa! Safe to say she would like it more than being taken out to a fancy restaurant for food and drinks!

  21. It's said that if someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you're not sure if you can do it, just say yes, and learn how to do it later, and that's exactly what young Rishabh Pant did when he was handed his International Test debut at the Trent Bridge. He started making a record from the very second ball he faced in Test cricket and since then, there has been nothing that could stop him. Following a magnificent IPL season, the Delhi cricketer shifted his gears forward and has never looked back since then. Being just 21 years of age, Pant has already created and broken many records, be it scoring his maiden century in England, or taking most catches in a single match, he has done it all. Let's go through all the records Pant has made or broken till now: © Reuters . He was the first Indian to open a Test account with a six, which came on his Test debut against England at Trent Bridge. He got off the mark by deposing Adil Rashid's googly into the stands, straight back over the bowler's head. . He became the first Indian keeper to score a Test century in England. . He broke another record when he became the first Indian wicket-keeper to take 11 catches in a Test, equaling the record of AB de Villiers and England's Jack Russell. . He also became the first Indian wicket-keeper to take 20 catches in a Test series, breaking MS Dhoni's record of 17 catches. . With his unbeaten 159, he also became the 1st Indian wicket-keeper to score a Test century in Australia. The Delhi cricketer also holds the highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper overseas, when he scored an unbeaten 159 against Australia in Sydney, overcoming Dhoni's record of 148 against Pakistan. . Pant became the first wicket-keeper with two Test hundreds as a 21-year-old.
  22. Despite swimming in a pool of controversies, 'Koffee With Karan 6' is back with its next episode featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan, who also happen to be host Karan Johar's closest friends. The episode promo has already intrigued us where Abhishek revealed that he is scared of his mom, but Shweta interuppted saying he's actually scared of his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. View this post on Instagram The Bachchan siblings bring their A-Game to the Kouch. It's #KoffeeWithBachchans this week on #KoffeeWithKaran. A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Jan 13, 2019 at 8:52am PST While the episode airs tonight at 9 PM on Star World, here are some highlights from what will happen in the show. Whether you're a celebrity or a commoner, social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are something no one can live without these days. So, it's quite normal for one of the most powerful families in Bollywood to have a family group, isn't it? In tonight's episode, the Bachchan siblings reveal what their family is like on WhatsApp and turns out it's not very different from ours. Instagram When Karan Johar asks them about their WhatsApp family group, it was revealed that Jaya Bachchan is basically every Indian mother on WhatsApp. It was found that she is the most active amongst all and has a routine of sending sentimental and emotional videos every morning. Bachchan Sr. is usually quite active on Twitter, but on WhatsApp he majorly stays out of action. In fact, Abhishek says he has to be notified by an SMS and only then he reads the message. Aishwarya too stays mostly inactive and as Abhishek says, "takes ages to reply to calls or texts." Star World Apart from this, the siblings had a lot of fun revealing their family secrets and who's their parents favourite child. In the episode, it's revealed that Abhishek has mother Jaya's heart and she is like the filmy mother from 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' who senses Abhishek's arrival and what's he going to do. Shweta even adds, "Today he will come home and he is going to be like this, mark my words", and it actually happened. Star World Abhishek took his revenge by telling Karan that for Amitabh Bachchan, his daughter is above all. He says, "Even if God also comes down, if Shwet Di is there it's all over! Nothing else matters to him.” Her opinion matters more than anything to him, he concluded. Looks like they are all set to bring the whole house down with their hilarious childhood secrets and funny stories.
  23. Vicky Kaushal's latest film 'Uri' has proved to be a huge Box-Office hit. Not only is it doing well commercially, it's been critically acclaimed as well - something which is a rare achievement for any movie. He just attended the star-studded screening, and he wore something that perfectly encapsulated the message the movie tries to drive home. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Now, it might look like a regular denim jacket worn over a regular T-shirt, but if you take a proper look, it perhaps is one of the finest examples of sartorial symbolism at play. Vicky is wearing a jacket that has doves all over, but underneath, he is wearing a T-shirt with a ferocious eagle on it. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The outfit reminds us of the element of peace that India always has put forth first while dealing with unrest at the border. Take off the jacket, and what do you find underneath? A mighty eagle that will show no mercy. That is exactly what the movie is all about. Coincidence? Perhaps, but a fitting one indeed. © Viral Bhayani Other sartorial superstars like our very own Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan also showed up at the screening, but their outfits had nothing on Vicky's. However, the entire group seemed to be ecstatic about the success of the film. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani This is how exciting every movie screening should be - the biggest names in the industry coming together and supporting each other unconditionally. *Applause*
  24. At a time when the comments made by Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul at film director and actor Karan Johar's talk show, 'Koffee With Karan' have made for one of the most trending issues buzzing all around, a lot of people were wondering what the Indian skipper, VIrat Kohli, had to say about the whole matter. After the 24-hour show cause notice levied by BCCI during which Pandya and Rahul were ordered to present their justification towards the indecent remarks made by the duo at the chat show, both the cricketers have been banned for two ODI matches upon the recommendations made by the Committee of Administrations Chairman, Vinod Rai. In the latest occurrence, the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli, who had kept himself completely aloof of the whole issue, finally spoke on behalf of the entire squad. “We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated,” Kohli said in a media coverage at the Sydney Cricket Ground ahead of the three-game ODI series against Australia. “I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don't align with those views and those are purely individual views.” But the additional comments made by Kohli is what makes him a great team leader. In an atmosphere of high tension where everyone is shaming Pandya and Rahul, Virat while showing his disagreement to their comments, didn't abandon them. “... the two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened,” Kohli didn't forget to mention. “Definitely, it has to hit anyone hard, they will definitely understand the things that have not gone right.” Kohli's take on the entire issue speaks volumes about his evolution as an aware captain. He feels responsible for his team both on and off the field and has been with them during the harshest of times. It's time for ODI cricket. Who do you reckon will lift this trophy after the end of the 3rd game.#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/ESskDamvDj — BCCI (@BCCI) January 11, 2019 Consecutively, the absence of the two extremely talented cricketers, especially the all-rounder in Hardik Pandya will leave a deep void in the roster, filling which will be a real task for the team. Meanwhile, Hotstar, the mobile app broadcasting Karan Johar's show has taken down the episode featuring the vexed cricketing duo.
  25. Be it his 270 knock against Pakistan or an extremely fine innings against England where he scored a brilliant 148, Rahul Dravid is and will always be the master of Test cricket. With going against the time, Dravid stuck to the basics and dominated the field with his defensive batting style even when the era of reckless and offensive batting had taken over. One of a kind, Dravid is loved by cricketers and fans from all around the world. His greatness has been well documented and is studied and glorified by the pundits of the game even today. As the cricketer turns 46 today, here is what some of the legends of the game have to say about 'The Wall': Ian Chappell © Reuters Dravid has always been India's superhero who showed up at the 11th hour to rescue his team from jaws of defeat and to victory, case in point, the Test match between India and England back in 2011 when Gautam Gambhir was unable to play due to a concussion and Dravid had to replace him as the opener. The block that he is, scored a stunning century. Brett Lee © Reuters Dravid is the nicest guy one could ever fancy meeting. For a person who has achieved so much, he has never been the one to let his success get to his head. While players of his stature tend to retire with a farewell tour, Dravid said 'goodbye' to the sport in a press conference in his home ground, the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
