  1. Music is one of the greatest markers of any civilisation. It grows, changes and evolves into something entirely different at the turn of every decade that comes to a close. Every new beginning welcomes new changes to the realm of music and the end result leaves a lasting impression on our minds. Yet, even with the constant evolution that music undergoes from time to time, certain compositions simply strike a chord and stick with us. Why? Maybe because the beats were catchy, or the film was one of your favourites from that year, or simply because the music got under your skin for no particular reason. But what we can't deny is the fact that even after so many years since the first time we heard those songs, we love them just as much even after a gap of 10 long years. We list down 10 such uber popular Bollywood songs from 2009 that were crazy hits and will soon be completing 10 years. So get ready to feel really old and find some of your favourite tracks on this list here, because frankly, we didn't see this coming. 1. Emotional Attyachaar (Dev.D) The absolute upheaval that this composition caused to the music charts in 2009 doesn't need much recollection. Emotional Attyachaar from 'Dev.D' came handy during so many situations besides a heartbreak, it quickly became a classic. 2. Dhan Te Nan (Kaminey) One of Vishal Bharadwaj's best compositions, this was from Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kaminey' was played at every house party and discotheque with equal enthusiasm. Edgy and entertaining, with high-rolling beats this one kept everyone pumped. 3. Tera Hone Laga Hoon (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani) This song from 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif sort of became the romance anthem of the year. Well, what can we say, guys took to it pretty quickly. 4. Iktara (Wake Up Sid) This one was a popular choice not only then, but even to this day, as we can find this song in a lot of people's playlist. And when we say a lot, we mean it. This soulful song not only fetched the singer the best playback singer award but also became a major hit. 5. Chiggy Wiggy (Blue) Even though 'Blue' tanked at the box office big time, this song was a major crowd-puller in 2009 because it saw Australian-British pop star, Kylie Minogue's first ever Bollywood collaboration. Apart from the song and music, those moves Kylie pulled off with Akshay Kumar were too good! 6. All Izz Well (3 Idiots) This one doesn't need any introduction for obvious reasons. This became a raging anthem with the younger lot of the time, and still continues to be a very popular number even after 10 years since it first came out. 7. Genda Phool (Delhi-6) Ask your mother and you will know exactly how much every mother and aunt in the country came to love this song, and relate to some or the other part of it. Regardless, there is no denying this was a popular number in 2009. 8. Paisa Paisa (De Dana Dan) The lyrics of this one, as well as Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif grooving to this song, got to the guys. If you haven't heard this one, you better. Then you will know exactly why. 9. Hai Junoon (New York) This one was meant for the squad and everybody appreciated it. People instantly connected to it because it reminded them of their friends and that is always a winner! 10. Twist (Love Aaj Kal) If you didn't dance to this one at least at five different parties, then did you even have any fun in 2009? This one took all the parties and dance sessions by storm!
  2. Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone XR, an 'affordable' iPhone that shared many of the same hardware features as the more expensive XS and XS Max. The iPhone XR turned out to be our favorite iPhone of the bunch last year, and you can read our review here. Now, Samsung has launched the new Galaxy S10e which follows the same footsteps. The Galaxy S10e is a compact phone that shares a lot of hardware advancements added in the standard Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. So, we decided to compare them & find out which one's a better affordable flagship. Here's how they compare: Display © YouTube Samsung's Galaxy S10e features a 5.8-inch 2280 x 1080 OLED display, whereas Apple's iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch 1792 x 828 LCD display. Both, on paper and in the real world, the Galaxy S10e is a better-looking display. Samsung's OLED is crisp, bright, and vibrant, just like any other flagship phone's display. That's not to say that the iPhone XR's display is bad by any means. It's one of the best LCD panels around, but it can't quite match the OLED display. When it comes to the cutouts, the Galaxy S10e has a punch-hole design, which Samsung likes to call an 'Infinity-O' display. The iPhone XR, on the other hand, uses the same notch as the iPhone XS and the XS Max as it packs the same FaceID system. Both are equally intrusive when it comes to content consumption like videos, etc. but again, the Galaxy S10e display's looks more modern and just better in person. Winner: Samsung Galaxy S10e Performance © YouTube The iPhone XR is powered by Apple's A12 bionic chip, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S10e model, which we used, is powered by an Exynos 9820 SoC. Apple's iPhones typically beat Samsung's when it comes to processor performance. Even the Snapdragon 855 SoC is no match. Of course, you won't find much of a difference in everyday tasks, but the A12 Bionic is a beast. As for the RAM and storage, the Galaxy S10e is equipped with 6GB RAM, double the RAM in the iPhone XR. It sounds like a small number of paper, but Apple is traditionally known to make better use of low RAM, thanks to the deep integration between hardware and software. When it comes to the storage options, the base variant of the Galaxy S10e comes with 128GB storage & the iPhone XR's base variant comes with 64GB. BTW, you can also expand the storage via a microSD card on the Galaxy S10e, but you can't do that with the iPhone XR. Winner: iPhone XR Biometrics © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Apple's FaceID system is the best in the business, and seriously there's no match to it. Even the Galaxy S10e has a facial recognition system, but Apple's system is more reliable and secure. But thankfully, the Galaxy S10e has a physical fingerprint scanner on the side. Yes, it's a deviation from Galaxy S10 devices that have an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but that's better because the Galaxy S10e's scanner is more fast and reliable than that of the standard S10 variants. Both phones, however, have strong points when it comes to biometrics. With the Galaxy S10e you get a physical scanner, whereas the iPhone XR has the reliable FaceID. So, you can't go wrong with either of them. Winner: It's a tie. Camera © YouTube Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e have scaled back on the rear camera to, you know, cut down on cost. However, the iPhone XR uses a single-lens camera while the Galaxy S10e has a dual-lens camera. The S10e features both wide and ultra-wide lenses, while the iPhone XR sports only a single wide-angle lens, with which it can also do portraits. We found both cameras to be equally good. With iPhone XR, you're looking at a typical iPhone camera with a very familiar interface. The images look very crisp, natural and true-to-life, which is always something we all can appreciate. With the Galaxy S10e, you'll get a typical Samsung camera which captures, you know, more vibrant and saturated (sometimes over-saturated) images, which one may or may not necessarily like. Unlike the iPhone XR which has a software portrait mode that doesn't work pets, food or anything but people, the Galaxy S10e can handle it all. It doesn't have any limitations. Add an ultra-wide lens to that, you have a very capable camera in your pockets. Winner: It's a tie, again. The Final Say © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e, as you can see, have ups and downs of their own. Apple is offering FaceID, the powerful A12 Bionic chip, great software/ hardware integration, etc. while Samsung is offering a dual-lens rear camera setup, a great OLED display, and expandable storage. However, there are other things to consider like the fact that the Galaxy S10e is a more compact phone, it runs Android instead of iOS, etc. So, at the end of the day, it comes to personal preference. But if you want to an affordable device that packs all the modern day tech, then you really can't go wrong with either of them.
  3. 'Made in Heaven' is a stellar show. No doubt about it. It is revolutionary in the current crop of series gracing the screen. It demonstrates the fact there has been a dramatic change in the way shows are being made today. Also, it has been instrumental in altering the storytelling abilities and direction of the narrative. Moreover, it has changed the perception of the audience regarding expectations from a show. Mind-blowing performances and a crisp storyline are just a few discerning qualities of the phenomenal series. Now, I won't drone on about how good the show is or how brilliant it is because it has already been said (numerous times). One thing is absolutely true, though the backdrop of the series is the big, fat Indian wedding, the series uncovers its hideous underbelly: it brings various social issues to the fore, things people don't discuss or try to shroud under the guise of gaiety and mirth. 'Made in Heaven' is an intricate series; it addresses issues without being preachy. Its beauty lies in its subtlety. Fiction is inspired by life, so there's no doubt that each new show exemplifies a slice of life, a part of life. Here are 14 truth bombs that 'Made in Heaven' eloquently embodies: 1. Be True To Yourself: Changing yourself for others is never a good bargain. You only end up feeling at war with yourself. People will judge you anyway. Karan (Arjun Mathur) is a closeted gay man and though he portrays himself to be unaffected by people's opinions, he is scared of the society he lives in. To be fair, society does make him feel bad about himself, be it the people around him or even his own family. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video As a young adolescent, he shames his best friend (who is also his lover), Nawab (Vikrant Massey), so that the other students don't judge him. Later in life, when he realizes the importance of speaking up, the fact that people take his silence for his cowardice, that is the moment he becomes himself. He starts accepting himself. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video In fact, Vinay Pathak as Karan's pushy landlord, Ramesh Gupta, wonderfully portrays the pathos of a man stuck in a web of his own creation, one who doesn't have the courage to face himself. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Reinventing yourself and changing yourself completely are different concepts; reinventing deals with changing certain things about yourself that make you better. Changing yourself completely, removing what makes you unique because of social conditioning and fear is a different ball game, it never leads to happiness. Tara's (Sobhita Dhulipala) character is interesting because she does both things. Tara reinvents herself, from being the slum-dwelling, uncouth girl she goes on to become a lady of the elite class. But in the process of doing so, she changes herself completely and brings out a part of her personality to the fore which isn't her, which makes her unhappy in the end. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Jazz (Shivani Raghuvanshi) is another example; she tries to change to fit in (Call her Jazz, ok?), even going to the extent of stealing in order to be accepted. More importantly, it is to feel good about herself but her way of doing that is wrong. She realizes that later on and repents for it. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video 2. No Matter How Much You Try, Things Will Go Out Of Hand: The show is about wedding planners, so the storyline is bound to heavily deal with the management of affairs. Things go terribly wrong for Tara and Karan multiple times throughout the season, ranging from the mild “the truck's goods have been stolen” to the fairly disastrous “the bride has run away”. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video The best thing is that they take things in their stride and make do with what is available to them. Instead of name-calling and blaming other people, they manage things efficiently. Yes, being a TV show, it seems essential that they will have a win at the end, but there is some amount of truth in the way they have represented circumstantial disasters, beautifully enacted by the actors. And isn't fiction inspired from real life? :P In Tara's personal life, her fairytale marriage to Adil seems to have hit a rocky patch. Tara tries to control it, but it ends up unravelling her life. In life, things don't always happen the way you want them, even though you ardently wished they did. But instead of ruing the day you were born and let it get the better of you, work with however little you might have. Don't try to micromanage every little aspect of your life, it isn't possible. More importantly, it isn't worth it. 3. Everything Comes With A Price Tag: The series focuses not only on the weddings featured but also the aspirations of the characters. Very intelligently depicted, there are parallels, a juxtaposition, between the wedding they plan and the circumstances they face. The weddings mirror the inner angst of the characters. Tara aspires to be a permanent member of the elite society. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Karan wants to be successful and have the choice to live life on his own terms. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Jazz longs for a lavish lifestyle, pretty dresses and all the perks of an upscale life. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video It may sound like a cliché as old as time (but aren't that what clichés are?) but everything does come with a price tag. Tara finds out that even though she has managed to get “the good life”, it is peppered with lies and deceit. Additionally, she had to pay for it by giving up on her principles and has to continue to do so as long as she wants to hold on to that esteemed position in society. Moreover, after achieving her goal, she finds out that the reality is nowhere near her lofty imaginings. On occasion, she has to quiet her suspicions by turning a blind eye to the truth. Jazz discovers that however noble your intentions may be, a crime is a crime. Once you have committed it, you can end up losing more than your job. Karan's success depends on borrowed money: from Jauhari (Vijay Raaz), his father, and Tara. Funnily enough, all want their money back from him but their ways of asking for it are dramatically different: Jauhari uses insistence and brute force, his father uses emotional manipulation. All these are the strings that his success relies on. 4. Sometimes, All You Need Is A Little Courage At The Right Moment: The show deals with poignant issues so brilliantly that it makes you marvel at the superb storytelling capabilities of Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti and Alankrita Shrivastava. Episode 4 (The Price of Love) focuses on Priyanka Mishra, who on the surface seems like the quintessential naive bride on the brink of happiness. Her fiancé, Vishal appears to be a man of principles. The shocking revelation of his true identity flabbergasts Priyanka and leads her to call in her dormant courage, at a moment which hangs in a delicate balance between right and wrong. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video The moment of hesitation before making her decision and the final determination to follow it through is wonderfully portrayed by Shweta Tripathi through her emotive face. The poignant depiction makes one realize that we all are capable of fighting our battles. All we need is a little courage at the opportune moment. Similarly, Karan finds courage after what he faces in jail; an epiphany which makes him take a stand for himself for the first time. On a dramatically opposite note, Pooja, the Mehendiwali, gives into societal pressure and makes a compromise with her life. For her, she chooses money over courage because that is what she needs in life. 5. And Other Times You Have To Play Dirty To Get What You Want: Episode 1 (All That Glitters is Gold) centres around an affluent family, The Roshans, whose son is about to get married to a journalist. The journalist in question is apparently a “gold digger”, as proclaimed by Neena Gupta's Veenu Roshan (who brilliantly plays that “loud, nouveau riche Punjabi lady from South Delhi”) and thus, asks Tara and Karan to do a background check on her. Though it is not ethical, the wedding planners agree to it because they need the job. Also, because they don't want their competitors to get the wedding. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Perhaps this fact is more established in Episode 5 (A Marriage of Convenience) when Karan takes up a wedding in Ludhiana as a last resort to make money. What Karan and Tara don't realize is that Sukhmani (Yaaneea Bharadwaj), the bride, is as desperate as them, she to achieve her “American Dream” as they are to get what they want. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video An example of Tara's shrewdness comes early on in the series, in Episode 1 (All That Glitters is Gold), when she manages to convince the bride to get the son back to his family; not because she is very invested in the idea of them getting married, but mainly to see that her business succeeds. It also mirrors Tara's ambition; an ambition which has soured overtime Karan does the same on a few occasions: lying and pretending, to fulfil his agenda of keeping the wedding going. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video The series of events is ironical; everyone plays dirty to get what they want, but in the end, does it really provide the happiness they craved from it? 6. Give It Everything You Have Got: Tara gives up her most prized possession to further herself. And in order to put herself out there, she doesn't cut corners. She takes grooming classes in a finishing school; even though she hails from a lower-middle-class background, she makes it a point to learn the intricacies of the high life. Even after getting what she wants, she doesn't stop there, she reinvents herself to fit in the new role of an upper-class socialite. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Karan asks help from people he doesn't rely on, especially his father. He is never afraid to go to the worst kind of people for money or put himself out there. Both Karan and Tara sometimes manipulate people so that they can go on with the weddings, but it is apparent in a few instances that they do care about the people they are arranging the event for and aren't just fueled by selfishness. 7. Friendship: I love how they have portrayed the essence of friendship without going overboard. Karan and Tara are friends first and business partners later; they do not let the professional differences affect their personal friendship. Tara does put her foot down when he asks for more money to be lent, but it does not mean that they stop being friends. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video They respect each other and care for each other; especially seen in a few heartwarming scenes: when Tara finds out that Adil is cheating on her, and when Tara bails Karan out of jail against all odds and hugs him without bothering about his dishevelled state. Faiza and Tara are good friends in the beginning; as we see in the flashbacks, Faiza makes it a point to make Tara feel included in Adil and her friend group, gives her advice and supports her. She helps her understand the nuances of high society. But it is ironical that it is she who betrays her in the end. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Kalki does a fabulous job playing Faiza; she brings out the unhappiness inside Faiza, the helplessness, the dilemma she faces with such intensity that it makes you feel a little bit sad about her, even though what she does to her best friend is unforgivable. Jazz and Kabir (Shashank Arora) strike up a camaraderie that is fun to watch; from initial dislike to a grudging respect for each other. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Karan and Mitali (the landlord's daughter played by Yashaswini Dayama) share a beautiful relationship; they are confidants and each other's secret keepers. They are not necessarily best friends but have an easy, lovable sibling companionship which melts your heart. Shibani makes it a point to be true to her friends even though they didn't part on the best of terms; isn't that what friendship is? 8. At Times, The People Closest To You Can Hurt You: People hurt you. It's normal, it happens. But it hurts a lot more when the person on the other end happens to be someone you love, trust or are close with. Karan's mother, in an attempt to safeguard a young Karan from society, threatens him, beats him up for being different and makes him live a lie. Whenever he tries to break free, his mother holds him back. Karan starts hating Nawab because of the shame his mother attributes to his love. She makes it impossible for him to have a cordial relationship with his father by instilling a sense of fear. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Adil (Jim Sarbh) cheats on Tara with her best friend, Faiza, someone Tara could never imagine to be a betrayer. Adil is the closest person Tara can ever have. But both of them dupe her all along, they betray her trust and to make it worse by acting like nothing has changed. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Episode 9 (The Great Escape) deals with a bride whose family members keep her drugged so that they can get her married off to a person of their choice so that they have a stronghold on her; they care about their own interests. In Episode 3 (It's Never Too Late), Deepti Naval's Gayatri is shunned by her children because she falls in love and wants to get married. The reason? She's in her sixties. Her children can't bear to see her getting married, her happiness does not count in their eyes. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video 9. Communicate: Karan never communicates with his father, leading to their strained relationship. He rarely lets his emotions to come to the surface, even with people he loves, because he doesn't want to be vulnerable in anyone's eyes. Adil and Tara meet are always too burdened with their individual problems; when Tara tries to talk to him, he is busy and vice versa. They hardly talk about their relationship, which finally leads to their impassive relationship. Tara finds solace in her work while Adil starts an affair with Faiza. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Communication is the foundation of any relationship; the thread binding two people in a lasting association. Shibani tries to remain as level-headed as she can and does communicate her problems regarding her position in the company and how she expects to be taken more seriously, but her words fall on deaf ears. When communication does not work effectively, she takes it in her own hands to turn things around for herself. 10. Most Importantly, Don't Let Success Go To Your Head: Jazz is enamoured with her surroundings, courtesy of her new job and the cool people she gets to hobnob with, which goes straight to her head. She lets it cloud her judgement and makes wrong decisions. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Success always gives one a high, it is in one's hands as to how they deal with it. 11. Not Everybody Is Worthy Of Your Trust & Appearances Can Be Deceptive: Trust is an essential part of life, if you don't trust someone, you can never have a meaningful relationship with them. Meanwhile, trusting someone blindly isn't a strong trait as well; you need to create a perfect balance between the two. The problem with Tara and Adil is that Tara thinks that once she has become Adil's wife she can trust him completely, which isn't such a bad notion when one is in love. But she takes him for granted. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Faiza appears as the best friend one can possibly hope for, but her reality is far from it. She keeps masquerading herself as a friend to Tara when she loathes her and her guts. Her real identity of a jealous and confused person comes to light in her conversations with her therapist, where she reveals how she simultaneously likes and hates Tara. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Karan, on some level, trusts that his landlord. He imagines that he will never invade his privacy, however over-friendly he might be. That is where the trouble starts. 12. Frailty, Thy Name Is Underestimation: Humans tend to judge everyone, it is in our nature, we just can't seem to stop. And judgment's cousin, underestimation, is never far away once you start judging someone. Never make presumptions about people you don't know. Underestimating someone's worth can only lead to problems and in some cases, embarrassment. Kabir makes fun of Jazz since the moment he meets her and teases her endlessly. All the characters judge her, underestimate her and humiliate her at times, given her background and her zeal to make everyone happy. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Funnily enough, she is the one who comes up with solutions (more than once) when the others are clueless about their course of action. Be it when hot-blooded Punjabi puttar, Joginder Sethi (Manjot Singh), in Episode 2 (Star Struck Lovers), finds out that the actor Sarfaraz Khan (Pulkit Samrat) invited for a performance at his pre-wedding bash has kissed his bride-to-be, Harsimran (Dalai Upadhyay), and is ready to kill him (in a hilarious “pakda-pakdi” match), eventually throwing the wedding in jeopardy, it is Jazz's somewhat archaic and filmy solution that comes to Made in Heaven's rescue. Again, in the next episode, Jazz comes up with the idea of emotional manipulation in order to fulfil Gayatri's wish to have her children present at her wedding. Adil underestimates Jauhari's capability as a partner in Made in Heaven only to be shocked when he realizes that he isn't just a “plumber” and has more knowledge about his company than he leads on. 13. Pride And Prejudice: You must have heard it somewhere: “Pride comes before a fall”. If only we learned from it. Episode 8 (Pride and Bridezilla) deals with Tarana Ali (Maanvi Gagroo), a nightmarish bride who wants things to be done her way and can resort to violence if her demands aren't met. She treats other people like lowly mortals (poor Jazz) and tries to lord over everyone. She has pride, but she is unaware of its misplacement and its hollowness. She believes that the world revolves around her because she has money and is extremely proud of being rich. What she is oblivious is that father took out a loan in order to fulfil her wishes, which brings us to another aspect of pride, from the perspective of other people. Tarana's father doesn't want to lose face in society, even he is proud, and that pride makes his bite more than he can chew. Brilliantly, it is echoed in the office peon's aspiration of getting his daughter married with pomp and show, and he too like Mr Ali wants to take out a loan for the same reason. Societal prejudices don't discriminate between poor and rich; such an irony. The royal wedding in Episode 7 (A Royal Affair), featuring the patrician Ranawat family, throws light on both societal prejudice and pride. On the surface, it looks like they are on the brink of modernization, by welcoming Devyani (Amrita Puri), a pilot, as the future daughter-in-law, but the reality is quite different. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Their erroneous pride about their heritage and their prejudice for people less fortunate than them is exemplified in the treatment of the Mehendiwali by Mr Ranawat, and eventually by Devyani. 14. Love Is What You Make It: Love does not have a textbook definition; it is different for everyone. Everyone loves differently, there isn't a rulebook to be followed. Love also has its flaws; you might love someone to death, and yet love someone else. Or you might betray them, lie to them to save them from themselves. Adil's character is an exemplary example of the fact; he loves both Tara and Faiza in different ways, he doesn't want to hurt any one of them and you can see that his love is true. It is his indecision that makes it impossible to choose between them; a man stuck with two choices and struggling to keep up with the mess he has created. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Faiza loves Adil. Tara loves Adil. But their reasons and their ways of professing that love are different. Joginder and Harsimran also come under this umbrella; Harsimran lies, not just to protect herself but to keep Joginder's ego and sanity in place. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Sometimes, love isn't the only reason to get married; Sukhmani's arc shows us that, so does Angad Roshan and Aliya Saxena's story. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video At times, love isn't enough: Priyanka and Vishal love each other but that doesn't justify atrocious behaviour and coercion on one's part. Love leads you to do things you wouldn't normally do; things you would perhaps never had thought possible or would have dismissed as an old wives' tale, as witnessed in Geetanjali and Nikhil's story (Episode 6: Something Old, Something New). When it comes to love, romantic love always clinches the crowning glory. But the love you feel for your family is not any less than it. And it pushes you to do things far beyond your reach, both good and bad. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video But often, love does conquer all as we see in Episode 9 (The Great Escape), with Nutan and John. Perhaps, the best lesson is that love never fades away, it comes in many shapes and forms; be it in friendship like Tara and Karan, or fear like Karan's mom and him, all-encompassing like Karan and Nawab's. © Excel Entertainment/Tiger Baby/Amazon Video Or else a bit later in life or for the second time like for Gayatri and Bijoy, or in another myriad form as illustrated by the different couples on the show.

  4. 1st April a.k.a April Fool's Day has always been the day on which all brands try to put their best foot forward and lie to us for the sake of, well, comedy. You definitely shouldn't be believing what you see or hear on April Fool's day, but it's also the day that brings out the best in the tech space. Well, 2019 was no exception, and we got to see a lot of interesting stuff from big name companies. But here are the best April Fool's Day pranks, which we wish actually real: 1. Notifications That Literally Follow! Duolingo's pesky notifications bugging you every day to take your language test can get super annoying, which is why we're sure you end up ignoring them. But this April fool's day, the company took a step further by introducing the idea of having a large green owl appear in real life and follow you around to remind you to practice your language lessons. Heck, they even come in three modes - encouraging, disappointed, or passive aggressive - and it's downright hilarious. Check it out - 2. A Smart Assistant For Gaming? Sure. Nvidia also took it a step further by announcing a GeForce RTX smart assistant called R.O.N. The company claims it can give you cool tips when you play games like Apex Legends, telling you to hide, etc. R.O.N. can also use its brains to leave comments on sites like Reddit and Twitch for you. But be careful, R.O.N. can become a serious troll. The best part, however, has got to be the device itself, which throws a really cool holograph. Check it out - 3. RGB CPU, Anyone? Newegg's new CPU for April Fool's day makes us wonder - “How much RGB is too much RGB?” Seriously, the company showcased an RGB CPU for people who just can't have enough RGB in their life. It costs a hefty $4,999.99, and it comes with a whopping 100 cores and 200 threads. Its base clock is a supposed 1.4 Petahertz and overclock, well, if you overclock it, Newegg says you “might create a small black hole inside your CPU.” It's not something that we want, because the CPU will anyway be tucked inside a cooler, but it's a hilarious idea. Check it out here - 4. Do You Like Cup Noodles? Yes, that's what HyperX and Nissin came up with. Needs no explanation we suppose? They even claim that you can detach the fork and slurp some noodles while gaming. Sounds just about right. © HyperX - Noodles 5. Like Sharing Your Music? If you don't like HyperX's idea, then how about something more practical? Like this Jabra Earbud(dy) headphones, with which you can share the music that you're listening to. It apparently comes with an ultra-light headband that can be extended “seamlessly to accommodate the perfect fit for every pair of buddies.” © Jabra 6. An App Find Your Lost LEGO Bricks? LEGO's “Find My Brick”, as the name suggests, is a parody of Apple's Find My iPhone app. It will help you find your bricks for you in a pile of miscellaneous blocks. Image how simple your life would be with such an app, and that's exactly why we think this should actually be real. The long search is finally over... ð± #FindMyBrick pic.twitter.com/3yBIPJ2OPk — LEGO (@LEGO_Group) April 1, 2019 Well, that wraps our list of April Fool's pranks. Of course, there were countless other pranks by the likes of OnePlus, Razer, Tinder, etc., but these are the ones which we truly wished existed in real life, especially the Nvidia R.O.N. and LEGO app.
  5. Ajay Devgn first graced the silver screen in the early 90s with the release of 'Phool Aur Kaante' in 1991. It would also become the film that would bring him his first award as an actor, Filmfare Award for Best Debut Actor. Close to completing three adventurous decades in Bollywood, Ajay Devgn has evolved not only as an actor, but also in personality. From the brooding lover in 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam', to the most beloved super-cop in 'Singham', Ajay has come a long way since. Therefore, this journey has obviously been as colourful as it has been adventurous, and there are ample number of photographs to show for it. We list down 20 rare photos of Ajay Devgn over the span of his long, and extensive career which show how the actor has transformed over the last 28 years of his Bollywood journey.

  6. Salman Khan, or 'Bhai' as he is lovingly called in Bollwood, is not only known for his movies but for his extravagant habit of indulging in expensive assets. Here are 9 such assets owned by 'Bhai' which is making us fel very poor compared to him: 1. Gorai Beach home Mumbai beaches do not provide the Khan family with any exclusivity towards the beach so Salman 'bhai' has a legit gorgeous 5 BHK beach home which he bought on his 51st birthday. The insane property is spread across 100 acres and has a gym, a big swimming pool, a theatre, and the sea-facing bungalow also reportedly has a dirt bike arena for some more fun. As per reports, this cost him close to a Rs 100-crore hole in his pocket. © Instagram 2. Panvel Farmhouse This place is the resident party place for the family's parties for their friends. This place is spread lavishly over 150 acres of land and besides the usual gorgeous room, a gym, a swimming pool and all that jazz, this farm also house horses and other domesticated animals. Reportedly, this came with a price tag of some Rs 80 crore. 3. Triplex Flat In Bandra The Khan family currently resides in the famed 'Galaxy Apartments' but Salman Bhai invested in this 11-storey building which is currently under construction. Rumour has it that the family might shift into this Rs 30 crore abode here once it's done. 4. Private Yacht Obviously, all the jet set getaways to Alibaug and travelling to their beach homes require a wonderful private yacht by the Khan family. Reportedly, Salman and his bhais have a yacht which cost him a whopping Rs 3 crore. © Instagram 5. Fleet Of Cars Salman has a wonderful collection of cars, courtesy his travel in Mumbai and the entourage that travels with him. His garage is overflowing with cars like the Mercedes Benz GL Class (approx. Rs 80 lakh), Mercedes Benz S Class ( approx Rs 82 lakh), an Audi A8 L (approx. Rs 1.13 crore), the BMW X6 (around Rs 1.15 crore,) a Toyota Land Cruiser (approx Rs 1.29 crore), the Audi RS7 (approx Rs 1.4 crore) and a Range Rover (over Rs 2.06 crore), an Audi R8 (costing around Rs 2.31 crore) and also a Lexus LX470 (approx Rs 2.32 crore). PHEW! 6. Crazy Expensive Bikes Salman Bhai owns the gorgeous Hayabusa which cost him over Rs 16 lakh. Along with that, he owns the Yamaha R1 which is around Rs 15 lakh, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000Z which costs Rs 16 lakh and the Suzuki Intruder M1800 RZ which is around Rs 16 lakh. 7. Super Expensive Bicycle Bhai is often spotted on Mumbai streets bicycling his stress away. Now, one would wonder an expensive bicycle would cost around a lakh or so but his Giant Propel 2014 XTC is over Rs 4 lakh. Yepp, 'shauq badi cheez hai'! © Instagram 8. Being Human Brand The brand has Salman Khan as the prime owner and is estimated to be valued for over Rs 235 crore. © Instagram 9. Production Company Salman ventured into production with his movie 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' and launched his banner SKF. He has co-produced numerous movies since then.
  7. A couple of days ago, the cricket fraternity found itself split into two when Kings XI Punjab's captain Ravichandran Ashwin 'mankaded' Rajasthan Royals (RR) hitter Jos Buttler in an exciting matchup during the first week of the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). For the better half of RR's batting, it felt as if Jos Buttler was single handedly going to win the team's first match of the season as Punjab bowlers grew restless. Finally, in the 13th over, Ashwin did something cricketers from all around the world frown upon. Halfway into his bowling action, he stopped and hit the stumps at the non-striker's end to appeal for a run-out as Buttler was a step outside of the crease. Cricketing fans from all over the world had some strong opinions about the incident. People like Dale Steyn and Eoin Morgan were absolutely livid with Ashwin's actions, calling him out in public for his lack of sportsmanship, and of setting a bad example for the future generation of talented cricketers India will be producing in the coming years. He ain't winning any spirit of cricket awards is old ashwin — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) March 25, 2019 On the other hand people came of Ashwin's rescue saying that whatever he did was not illegal and was well within the ICC rules of cricket and therefore should not be bashed so much. Former Test opener for the Indian side, Aakash Chopra even promoted the idea of more and more bowlers mankading after the match between Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday. Missed Opportunity....more bowlers need to start running batsmen out at the non-striker's end. It's a 22-yard pitch...don't let them make it 20 yards. #Unfair pic.twitter.com/qeGBDocU8G — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) March 27, 2019 The issue snowballed into something so dramatic that legends of the game like Shane Warne and Harsha Bhogle indulged in an ugly Twitter battle as well. Believe it or not but this isn't the first time Ashwin has 'mankaded' someone. Back in 2012 in an ODI match against Sri Lanka, Ashwin did the same to Lahiru Thirimanne. However, back then the leadership of the roster was in the hands of legends like Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar, who overruled Ashwin's appeal when asked by the umpires and asked the Sri Lankan batsman to return to the crease. Such was the class with which the Men in Blue used to play the game. Players like Tendulkar, Sehwag and even MS Dhoni for that matter have grown as elite cricketers and respectful athletes who have the heart of a champion, sure, but did not settle to sell their morals in order to win a game. The 'win at all costs' notion that has plagued sports in recent years has completely gone against the very ideals of sports. Discipline, honour, mutual respect, everything goes out of the window as soon as the greed of getting that extra number in the points table takes over. What Ashwin did was well within the rules as Harsha Bhogle's gone on and on about in the past three days but would players like Tendulkar and Sehwag do something like this, or better yet, be proud of it? We think not.

The Scotland Yard hotel has over 153 rooms and a night here will be over 10,000 pounds which translates to around Rs 9 lakhs per night. Obviously, the rooms will have an enviable view of the Westminster Abbey and the Buckingham Palace as well. © Twitter © Daily Mail Old prisoner cells have been converted into meeting rooms and secet whiskey bar and a big chandelier in the hotel is a tribute to a gang of famous female robbers, the Forty Elephants. © Daily Mail The hotel will open its doors this year and promises a different experience to its guests. Who even thought that a place guarding prisoners would turn into something which commands you to throw so much money to spend a night here!
  9. With Indian summers just around the corner, it's time for Indian men to start upgrading their wardrobes in order to beat the heat and look their fashionable best. This can be a singularly challenging task since adorning an ensemble that won't just make you look good, but will also help you combat Indian summers, all the while ensuring that you feel comfortable in that ensemble, isn't easy. Fortunately, we have made that task easier for you by conducting the proper research and compiling a list of some comfortable and stylish sleeveless t shirts for men. We cannot change the weather for you, but what we can do is get you the best gear to adapt to it. Now before you invest in a sleeveless tee for yourself, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Let's get you acquainted with the essentials: 1. The fit: You might be mistaken if you think that the fit of a sleeveless tee isn't really a matter of much concern. In reality, it's incredibly easy for your sleeveless t shirt to be too loose (often the case when you buy a size too large). So, make sure that you go for a fit that is comfortable and relaxing, but at the same time, isn't too large so as to draw attention for all the wrong reasons. 2. The colour palette: In this afflicting heat, no one wants to be further tortured by the sight of tacky coloured clothes! So, avoid wearing colours that are too bright or blinding. Also, don't go for dark colours as they tend to absorb more heat than other shades. Colours like white, grey, beige, and even light blue make most sense to invest in. 3. The material: The fabric composition should always be your concern when shopping for any kind of apparel. After all, the material of your clothes should be breathable so that your body doesn't feel stifled. When it comes to making a decision and choosing the best material available, cotton, especially Supima cotton, makes for a great and reliable alternative. So without further ado, and keeping the above three factors in mind, here is a list of 10 of the best sleeveless t shirts for men that will make you look AND feel cool. 1.

  10. Sundays are meant to prepare you for the dreaded Monday blues and a long week ahead. You've probably bathed, eaten, and you're back in bed, browsing Netflix or maybe skipping through YouTube videos. Looking for a little something to tickle your funny bone? Well, if you're a true blue Punjabi movie fan, this list maybe done and dusted for you. If not, then here are a few recommendations for your Sunday binge. Most of these movies are easily available on Netflix and Amazon Prime, so subtitles won't be an issue. 1. Carry On Jatta (Part 1 & 2) This has to be on your list. Trust me, this movie and its sequel never ever disappoint. A man caught in a web of lies, with so many hilarious characters thrown into one frame, this will have you ROFL like never before. 2. Jatt & Juliet (Part 1 & 2) Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa never disappoint in this cop drama series which has part romance and a lot of comedy thrown into it. Also the sound track of the movies is quite good. 3. Vadhaiyan Ji Vadhaiyan This one is a comedy of errors which is nothing short of a laugh riot. If you want to watch a no-brainer, slapstick comedy which leaves you gasping for breath, just watch this and you're sorted. 4. Manje Bistre This one stars the gorgeous Sonam Bajwa and is a comedy movie with a Punjabi wedding in the background. The second part is already in the making. 5. Ambarsariya Another comedy featuring Diljit Dosanjh, which is a comedy of mistaken identity, and some peppy music to go with it. Even if you're not a pro at Punjabi, these movies will lighten up your Sunday like nothing else.
  11. If the subject intrigued or interested you then welcome, my friend, to this world of complexity where our minds entangle in a web of ignorance, our relationships are going haywire, egos are inflating higher than the diesel prices and life is one big sad joke which keeps us grooving anyway. Well, fiction is a great escape from reality but what happens when you binge-watch shows which mirror the confusion of your life? Here are our personal 6 recommendations which show the complexity of modern relationships with a lot of humour. 1. How I Met Your Mother If you have already watched it and you're looking for something on similar lines, then hold on, this can be a list for your next 'binge watch'. Barney Stinson and Ted Mosby taught us a lot about how relationships work, if you can look beyond the fact that many rule it out as something similar to 'FRIENDS'. 2. Rules Of Engagement Okay, this will give you a major HIMYM déjà vu, so consider it like a home remedy of that hangover. Two couples and their single friend embark on a journey called 'life' with the complexities of their relationship pushing and pulling them. 3. Happy Endings This is another modern day, super relatable show about six friends who find it difficult to keep their relationships intact when the couple who got them all together decide to break up. 4. You're The Worst Probably my favourite on the list and a well kept secret which is actually a 'millenial gem', if I may call it. This one involves two narcissistic, selfish humans, who, despite their insecurities and mental health issues, try to mend their relationship time and again. This one is so relatable, it will be hard for you to believe it's actually fiction. 5. Lovesick This British comedy looks at the dark side of millennial relationships, which often involve the subject of sexual health of our partners. Dylan is a 20-something man who is diagnosed with an STD. The adventure begins when he peeks into his past and goes back to all his lovers to know their diagnosis. 6. Friends From College This one deals with people in their 40s who appear to be slightly better than their so-called millennial counterparts, but are equally screwed in the head. Well, modern relationships do have their shortcomings and these shows take full advantage of that reality.
  12. Bollywood is no more a door which opens only for Indians and 'desis' residing outside thriving on K3G and Rajshri Productions movies. Bollywood has crossed borders and broken cultural barriers for India in many countries and lately, China's intriguing affair with Hindi movies has only grown with time, and here are 5 movies which have helped in the process : 1. Dangal Aamir Khan enjoys a special place in the hearts of the Chinese audience and is already a household name in the country. China's first introduction with Khan's talent was back in 2001 when 'Lagan' was released there. The appetite wasn't much back then but now, he is clearly a famous name. His portrayal of a determined father giving it his all to train his daughters for wrestling is something that the audience loved. 2. Padman Akshay Kumar is another actor who enjoys great popularity in China. The audience there fell in love with the entrepreneur's dedication to his wife in the movie, which led to a life-altering moment for women in rural sectors. 3. Secret Superstar Aamir is clearly like royalty in China and all his movies end up on the 'must-watch' list eventually. This was one which also touched the hearts of the Chinese audience with a simple story of a girl harbouring big dreams. 4. Bajrangi Bhaijaan Let's just say even China couldn't resist the magic of Salman Khan ( that's not us but the data that claims how his movies are blockbusters). This movie ended up making over 238 million Yuan in China. 5. Hindi Medium You might wonder why a story of an urban couple running around the circles of society to get their son admitted in a desirable school struck a chord with the Chinese audience. The thing is that the dilemma of parents trapped in an urban set up with limited resources had a universal appeal. So the subject was what made the movie work well in China. Following suit is Ayushmann Khurrana's 'Andhadhun' which is now all set to release in China as 'Piano Man'.
  13. Samsung recently announced its new true wireless earbuds with the Galaxy S10 and is a competitor with the AirPods. We've been using the Galaxy Buds for a week and it's been a good experience so far. At the same time, we've been using the AirPods ever since it was launched and you can read our full review here. We pit the two wireless earbuds against each other to find out which one is best for music lovers. Sound Quality Regardless of the features, earbuds need to sound good and if it doesn't fit the bill, it completely defeats the purpose. The AirPods generally sound awesome especially for something with small drivers. It delivers clean vocals, has balanced lows and great highs. The overall sound is quite impressive —until I heard the Galaxy Buds. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds sound a tad bit better than the AirPods simply because it is clearer and louder. Sound quality is almost at par; however, the lows were a bit muffled. You can adjust it from the gear app; however, it still isn't as good as the AirPods. Winner: Galaxy Buds for delivering cleaner and louder sounds. Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of design, Apple has made the true wireless earbuds iconic which has resulted in companies copying the design. It has a glossy white finish on the case and has that distinctive design on the actual earbuds. Having said that, the AirPods are not sweat resistant and can slip out with ease. The Galaxy Buds, on the other hand, follows a refined design from the Gear Icon X and is also sweat resistant. It isn't as slippery as the AirPods and will not fall out as easily. The charging case is a bit bigger than its competitor but also supports wireless charging. If you a smartphone that supports reverse wireless charging, you can keep it charged on the go or use a Qi-certified wireless mat. AirPods, on the other hand, does not support wireless charging and needs to be charged using the lightning cable. Winner: Galaxy Buds for having sweat resistance and a wireless charging case. Connectivity © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds supports Bluetooth 5 connectivity whereas the AirPods use Apple's W1 chip. Both devices connect to an iPhone/Galaxy S10 seamless the moment you open the charging case. Having said that, the story is a bit different when it comes to connectivity and range. The Galaxy Buds have a very poor range even when the Galaxy S10 would be in our pocket. It would often disconnect or is unable to transfer enough data for seamless music experience. AirPods, on the other hand, can play music up to 5 feet without any loss of data or music. Winner: AirPods for better connectivity. Control and Call Quality © MensXP The Galaxy Buds have a touchpad in the triangular shell and can be used to control music and make or answer calls. You can tap once to play/pause music, double tap to skip to the next track or tap thrice to go to the previous song. The touch on the Galaxy Buds is a bit sensitive however it was not that hard to operate. AirPods, on the other hand, have similar controls but are divided amongst the two earbuds. You can map it according to your own liking and even summon Siri by double tapping on the earbuds. It works perfectly with Apple Music and Spotify. Having said that, call quality is better on the AirPods as audio on the Galaxy Buds were a bit muddy. AirPods has clearer sound and mic quality which gives it the extra edge over the Galaxy Buds. Winner: AirPods for better call quality and better integration with Apple Music.

The Galaxy Buds come with 68-mAh battery and can even be charged on the go via wireless charging (provided you have the Galaxy S10 or the Huawei Mate 20 Pro). Winner: Galaxy Buds for longer battery life and wireless charging Overall Winner Even though it's a close fight, the Galaxy Buds deliver a better experience and offers more features than the AirPods. It sounds better and is more comfortable to use. It fits snug as a bug and won't fall out as easily as Apple's AirPods. The Galaxy Buds are also cheaper than Apple's AirPods which makes it even more superior than the AirPods.
  14. Netflix released the trailer of 'Delhi Crime' which traces the events of the unfortunate Nirbhaya rape case of December 2012. The seven part series stars Shefali Shah who plays Varthika Chaturvedi, a police officer who headed the investigation and takes the audience deep into the entire investigation of the case which shook the nation in grave horror. On 16th December 2012, a young woman was returning home with her friend when she was gang raped by six men in a bus and the two friends were thrown to die on the road later. The event stirred a nation wide protest and pressurised the government and the police to push for justice for the girl and her family. © Netflix Shefali has done a stellar job with the role and this trailer gives us a glimpse of what actually happened during the chase and run between the police and the criminals, the state of the girl's family, and the nation wide protests which reflected the brutal frustration of the common man with the loopholes of the system in India. Our country is still known as one of the most unsafe countries for women in the world and it's high time we, as a nation, do something about it. The series premieres on 22nd March on Netflix.
  15. The real winters might have gone, but the virtual, more important winter is around the corner and we are already hyperventilating because we don't think we can't deal with it. Yes, 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 is almost here, and the dread of finality has taken over because the trailer has already dropped. Let's not even get into 'why we can't wait for it', but just the fact that the look and feel of season 8 is so edgy, that it is giving us goosebumps. If the trailer wasn't enough, here are 18 pictures of the characters from season 8 - all deadly, and much, much more fashionable than ever before. This season, they are all ready to slay us with their style game, before indulging in the great battle. Take a look. 1. Tyrion and Jaime © Entertainment 2. Arya and Sansa © Entertainment 3.

  16. You must have challenged your gym mates for pull-up competitions to see who is better and can do more reps. You must have also noticed gym trainers often pushing beginners to do these exercises every day. It's globally one of the ideal exercises to grow your back and gain back and bicep strength. To get a wider back, you have to focus on your back muscles; especially your lats. Wider lats, visually from behind, gives the V-taper look. Which one is the best for a wide look? Well, both! The chin-up and pull-up can both develop the back. The difference comes from the forearm supination (turning the arm) in a chin up. This allows your biceps to be more massively recruited and thus lift more weight. The pull-up puts your biceps in a biomechanically antagonistic position. Thus, your biceps do less work. The trap muscles, on the other hand, are activated more in the pull-up. However, scientific research shows that the lats are trained identically as well in both variations. So which one should you do? © Pixabay Both can be incorporated together in a training plan or implemented in any way which makes you more comfortable and helps you do more volume. Think of the chin-up and pull-up as variations rather than one being better than the other. They both stimulate the lats, they both are excellent for shoulder health, and they both give your back the look of your favourite bodybuilder. © Pixabay Btw, chin-ups won't build your chest, but scientific literature shows they are activated. Both chin-ups and pull-ups are perfectly safe unless you make a mistake. There's just way too many funny things I've seen people do during these exercises to achieve maximum reps. So, to conclude, I would say perform them with proper form always. Author bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  17. The Apple Watch has been dominating the wearables market ever since it was announced and is now considered the best smartwatch there is. The Apple Watch has added many useful features over the years, however, it lacked one feature that has been absent for a while. © Pillow The Cupertino giant is rumoured to be testing sleep tracking securely and according to insiders who spoke to Bloomberg and detailed Apple's plans. The Apple Watch is expected to launch the sleep tracking feature in 2020 and will essentially also kill third-party apps that are currently offering the same feature on the Apple Watch. Currently, apps like Pillow and Sleep++ offer a similar feature where it tracks a user's sleeping patterns and habits. Smartwatches that tend to have a sleep tracking feature usually last for days due to a larger battery. This will be a major hurdle for Apple to overcome, as the Apple Watch can last only for a day on a full charge. Apple may have to outfit the 2020 Apple Watch with a bigger battery or add a low power setting for speed mode. © Beddit Apple recently bought Beddit, a company that makes sleep tracking devices as well as apps for iOS and the Apple Watch. The company also launched a sensor strip that can be placed underneath a bed seat to track sleeping patterns and snoring habits. Sleep-tracking has been one of the most requested features by Apple Watch users, however, Apple will have to either increase the battery capacity or come up with a different solution in order to run this feature. We can only be sure when the new Apple Watch will be announced this year and its capabilities and see if it hints at the upcoming feature with a larger battery or a new power saving mode.
  18. If you're a die-hard fan of Valentino Rossi, and have grown up idolising Giacomo Agostini, it is already settled that you love the world of two-wheeler racing, and live for the thrill and danger that come with it. And while you may practise the sport in your hometown, sometime away, we know you dream big. So today, we have listed out five of the most toughest race tracks in the world that are every biker's dream. 1. TT Course, The Isle Of Man iomtt.com The Isle of Man TT Mountain Course is the holy grail of all motorsports across the globe, and undoubtedly one of the most dangerous ones too. Started in 1904, the event takes place every May and June at the Isle Of Man, a tiny country between England and Ireland, that doubles up as 37.73-mile arduous, claw-shaped mountain course with sharp bends, deadly turns and bumpy roads, set between gorgeous, hilly green landscapes. 2. Silverstone Circuit motorsport.com Located right next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury, the circuit hosts the British round of the MotoGP series. The Silverstone circuit is every pro-biker's dream, and why wouldn't it be? The legendary corners and straights, the thrill of the track and the camaraderie of the pits, add to the adrenaline rush. 3. Suzuka Circuit Suzuka Circuit Suzuka Circuit at Suzuka City is the first full-scale international racing course in Japan with five configurations - the car full circuit, the motorcycle full circuit, the "Suzuka east," "Suzuka west car," and "Suzuka west motorcycle" configurations. Some of the circuit's major events include the Asia Road Racing Championship, Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours and MFJ Grand Prix Superbike Race. 4. The Sepang International Circuit MotoMalaya Designed by German architect, Hermann Tilke, The Sepang International Circuit is a motorsport race track in Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia. The main circuit, which is 5.5 kilometres long, is known for its sweeping corners and wide straights. Some of the major events of the circuit are Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prixx 2019, Sepang 1000KM Endurance Race 2019, and 2019 Pirelli Malaysia Superbike Championship. 5. Mugello Circuit Mugello & Tuscany With a total track-length of 3.2 miles, Mugello Circuit at Tuscany, Italy is known for its fast curves and incredible slopes. Constructed in 1974, the circuit is situated 292 metres above sea level, and has 15 steep turns. When we talk about the craziest race tracks in the world, we also need to include mind-blowing super-bikes that race on these tracks. One such bike that fits the bill of adventurous racing is the all new TVS Apache RR 310 with an engine capacity of 312.2cc that delivers best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. TVS Apache The bike is well-equipped with advanced aerodynamics to achieve maximum downforce, minimum wind blast and higher top speed. But that's not it. Reverse inclined engine makes upstream air being used effectively to pass through the air filter with ram effect. This gives a compact engine layout and optimum engine temperature at all conditions. Besides, RR 310's lightweight trellis frame is perfect for racing. It offers higher stiffness with best structural efficiency for total control, excellent dynamic response at higher speeds and ease of maneuverability to cut through city traffic. And if you're a biker yourself, here is what makes the bike the ultimate racecraft. TVS Apache The rider triangle is optimized for better load distribution on the shoulder that gives excellent steering control and good low-back comfort. The seat profile is sculpted for ease of sliding around to achieve precise racing line while hitting the apex. Sounds like a machine made for every adrenaline junkie ever!

  20. If you've watched 'Gully Boy', you probably are as enamoured by Siddhant Chaturvedi AKA MC Sher, as Murad was after watching him perform for the first time from the balcony of his college. The newcomer has not only delivered a powerhouse performance worth thunderous applause, but he has also has managed to do it while sharing the screen with Ranveer Singh - who without a doubt is one of the finest performers in the industry today, someone who can easily steal your thunder on screen without even having to put an effort. However, homeboy Sher didn't let that happen and held his own valiantly. From raw talent to enviable screen presence, this man already has everything going on for him. The cherry on the cake? He's effortlessly stylish, and his handsome boy-next-door demeanour makes us confident that Bollywood might just have discovered its next Vicky Kaushal.

  21. Remember Ricky Martin? Of course you do. We all danced our birthday parties away to songs like 'Livin' La Vida Loca' and 'She bangs' in our childhood - irrespective of how age-inappropriate some of them might be for kids, we now realize. However, those days, we were too innocent to read between the lines, and everyone just enjoyed the music. Especially when it comes to Ricky, his music had the inherent ability to make everyone groove to the rhythm, irrespective of the language barriers at times (remember 'Maria'?) Ricky was keeping a low profile for the longest time in between, till he came to the forefront again with 'American Crime Story - The Assassination Of Gianni Versace'. Before that, he was enjoying fatherhood, and some quality time with his super adorable family. Ricky, along with husband Jwan Yosef, legit make the most stylish dads around, and here are 10 pictures which prove that. 1. Just look at them. © Getty Images 2.

  22. Suniel Shetty perhaps has the best 'redemption story' in Bollywood, when it comes to fashion and grooming. From being the ever-scruffy and sweaty distressed hero with anger issues wearing torn and tattered clothes to the suave, sophisticated aesthetic he now proudly flaunts, his has been a journey worth noticing. Of the many, many things that contributed to his swanky new avatar now, his beard probably is the most important entity. His thick, shapely salt-n-pepper face mane is as alluring as it is intimidating, and it just works for his classy-dad aesthetic in a way that's extremely impressive. Here are 10 pictures which prove that Suniel Shetty has the best beard in Bollywood right now. 1. 'Yoga se hi hoga' but that beard tho!

  23. If you compare the 'Attitude Era' during which wrestling gods like the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin used to bully a hospitalised Vince McMahon with a bedpan or Mick Foley losing his teeth after being chokeslammed by The Undertaker from atop a massive steel cage during a Hell in a Cell match to what the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is today, you would notice a stark difference in the show. It is safer, a lot more suitable for children and in order to increase the number of international fans, it has led to opening up its doors to international superstars like 'The Maharaja' Jinder Mahal and 'The Celtic Warrior' Sheamus. Having said that, there has been a considerable drop in the viewership of the show ever since WWE went PG in 2008. Even with a loaded roster with the likes of Triple H, John Cena and 'The Animal' Batista headlining all the major events, fans seemed to be drifting away from the show simply because of the fact that the storylines weren't interesting or entertaining enough. However, there was one man who probably had the key to turn around the fate of the show even in the PG era. The star being the 'Straight-Edge' CM Punk, who came up with the most engaging storyline of the clean era in his feud with Cena and the rest of the 'phoney' business as he called it during his famous 'pipe-bombs'. However, things didn't workout between WWE and Punk, and as a result, the latter left the organisation on a very bitter note. Alright hosers! You've been asking for him and you get him. We got @WWERollins on the #ECPOA with @EdgeRatedR and @Christian4Peeps. Seth talks about his match with Brock Lesnar at #WrestleMania and much more! #Subscribe for Free: https://t.co/HB0u22z7ed pic.twitter.com/8r8eblUDIr — Pod of Awesomeness (@EandCPod) February 8, 2019 In a recent episode of the former wrestlers Edge and Christian's E&C Podcast of Awesomeness, the 2019 Royal Rumble winner Seth Rollins spoke of what a visionary Punk really was and how he wanted to help WWE increase their viewership with the introduction of his version of 'Sierra Hotel India Echo Lima Delta' or SHIELD which did not include the three-time WWE Champion, Roman Reigns. According to Rollins, Punk believed that the roster at the time consisted of young individuals who lacked both the experience and the desire to make things happen. These individuals, Punk believed, didn't try to push their boundaries and were just happy to have made to the main roster. As a result, WWE as a product and as a brand suffered a lot of damage and lost massive viewership worldwide. Punk, who had to literally fight his way to the top saw his reflection in some of the upcoming stars in the NXT roster, stars like Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, who were dedicated, innovative and motivated to do better. However, this 'list' of Punk's didn't include the Samoan performer, Roman Reigns. Believe. In. THE SHIELD. #RAW pic.twitter.com/SHLfdBhsSz — WWE (@WWE) August 21, 2018 “So he (CM Punk) wanted to get us in there, us being myself, and Ambrose, and I think, maybe, Kassius Ohno/Chris Hero, but I'm not sure. But the company loved Roman from the get-go, and for all the right reasons,” Rollins said at Edge and Christian's podcast. Punk was a great performer, both as a wrestler and with the mic. When he spoke, people listened. There's no doubt that this version of the 'Hounds of Justice' went on to become a great hit, giving the brand three of the greatest stars of this decade but the fact that we may never be able to see Punk's version of the trio, stings just a little.
