  1. Bollywood’s tryst with ‘desh bhakti’ is a concept which unanimously unites us all. War movies have a fan following of their own and tell gripping tales of our brave hearts and instil a sense of gratitude like nothing else. To pay a tribute to some of the real life heroes who were instrumental in fighting for their motherland, here are 5 upcoming movies based on them: 1. Shershaah One of the biggest and the most awaited movies of the year, this one tells the tale of ‘Shershaah’ Captain Vikram Batra who played a major role in leading India’s victory in the 1999 Kargil War and sacrificing himself for the love of his nation. The movie has Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role and Kiara Advani as the female lead. This one releases on 12th August. 2. Sam Bahadur One of the most awaited movies for all Vicky Kaushal fans, this film will follow the story of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, who was the chief of Indian Army during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. “I had always heard stories about Sam Bahadur from my parents who hail from Punjab and have seen the 1971 war. But when I read the script I was completely blown away. He is a hero and patriot who is remembered and loved to this day. Capturing his spirit in the film is of the highest importance to me,” Vicky had mentioned in an interview. The movie is being helmed by Meghna Gulzar and a release date is yet to be announced. View this post on Instagram 3. Bhuj-The Pride Of India Another war movie set amidst the backdrop of the 1971 war, this film stars Ajay Devgn playing the role of IAF squadron leader Vikram Karnik who, along with the help of 300 women in nearby villages, rebuilt the Bhuj airstrip which was destroyed during the war. This was an instrumental move in helping India win the war. The movie is releasing on 13th August . 4. Major This bilingual movie will be a tribute to the life of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who became a martyr during the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Actors Adivi Sesh and Sai Manjrekar will be seen as the leads and the movie is scheduled to be released this year. View this post on Instagram 5. Ekkeess This biopic on the life of Second lieutenant Arun Khetarpal will have Varun Dhawan in the lead role. The movie was announced by Sriram Raghavan, who is the man behind Andhadhun as well. This movie will showcase the life of second lieutenant Arun Khetarpal who was awarded the Param Vir Chakra posthumously after he sacrificed his life during the 1971 war. No release date has been announced yet. © Twitter War movies are not just great crowd pullers but also serve a bigger purpose of educating the people about key historical events.

  2. Long before cinema became experimental and various genres erupted, the scope of movie making in the 90s was restricted to makers directing movies which catered to a particular family crowd mostly. Even though today we have an insane variety on OTT, there are some cult movies which defined the way we perceived Bollywood while growing up. Here are 7 movies which are basically an emotion for us: 1. Hum Saath Saath HainEven today, if this movie is played on TV, chances are you will stop and watch it, with every scene rolling in your mind. For anyone who grew up in a big joint family, this movie signified the love, the fun and the memories attached to playing around with so many cousins, attending so many weddings and having many uncles and aunts who never left a chance to pamper us. 2. Andaz Apna ApnaComedy in the 90’s had a benchmark of this movie, which was simple and humorous. One can watch this repeatedly and yet never get bored. 3. RangeelaThis was a movie which was ahead of its times. A beautiful Urmila who changed how fashion was perceived for the modern Indian girl and the hook step to the title track was something we all tried to learn. 4. Dil Toh Pagal HaiBefore KKHH explained to us that ‘pyar dosti hai’, this movie had already established that love can exist in many forms and friendship is one pure version of it. Also, how can you forget the iconic dance duet between Karisma and Madhuri which lit the screens on fire. 5. Jo Jeeta Wohi SikandarA super sexy Pooja Bedi straight out of Marilyn Monroe dreams, a clichéd character of Aamir Khan representing how class difference influences a student’s personality and oh, Pehla Nasha, the song which continues to jog our memories when we think of a song about our first junior school crush. 6. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge“Jaa Simran Ja, jee le apni zindagi”, DDLJ gave us hope that true love will happen when we grow up. It lit up dreams of European vacations, eating ice cream in the snow, catching a train by holding a good looking stranger’s hand, and that mandoline will play every time we fall in love. 7. BorderYou were probably only 6 or 7 years old when this movie ended up lighting a fire of patriotism in you and you caught yourself dreaming of joining the Army. This movie and its soundtrack continues to give us goosebumps. View the full article
  3. Actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra is currently in a legal soup which involves him being questioned in a case of making pornographic movies. The London-returned businessman is in custody till July 23 and with a lot of murkier details coming up surrounding this news, things seem to be moving against him. The man has been known to be a hardcore entrepreneur who has built an empire which makes his net worth to be around Rs 2600 crore. His wife is also a business woman besides being an actress and together, they happen to be one of the richest couples in Bollywood. Here’s a look at the assets he owns with his wife Shilpa Shetty across the globe that make them so freaking rich: 1. Luxurious UK BungalowBefore he got married to Shilpa Shetty, Raj was living in the UK with his former wife and daughter. His business is spread across England and the couple have a luxurious bungalow near Surrey with an exotic view. © Daily Mail 2. Private JetThis couple is one of the few celebrities in India who own a jet of their own and are often spotted travelling with family and friends in style. © Instagram 3. Apartment In Burj KhalifaOwning a stunning apartment in one of the tallest buildings in the world and leaving the world confused with envy comes easy when you are a romantic with a big heart and a big pocket. Reportedly, this was a wedding anniversary gift to his beautiful wife. The apartment was around Rs 50 crores. Yeah, no big deal for them. © Instagram 4. Sea Facing VillaThe family of four like some quality time together and hence to accommodate their family and love life infused with shenanigans, the couple reportedly bought and built a palatial sea-side property and named it Kinara. The house is stunning, needless to say. © Zoom 5. 20 Carat Engagement RingIf you’re one of the richest couples in the country, how can engagement rings be small? Several reports cited that Mr. Kundra proposed his ladylove with a 20 carat engagement ring which was valued at an estimated Rs 3 crore! © TOI 6. Fleet Of Luxury CarsThe uber rich also travel rich. Raj gifted Shilpa a Range Rover worth Rs 2 crore on their 9th wedding anniversary and a blue Lamborghini even before it was launched in India. No surprises there. © Instagram © Instagram 7. Swanky Apartment In NoidaOwning a property in Delhi-NCR is no easy task and that too in one of the tallest towers in the country which has 80 floors.

  4. It has been a couple of days since pacer Deepak Chahar reached out to his inner batsman and led the Indian cricket team to an incredible victory against the hosting Sri Lankan squad in the second of three ODI matches. At one point the Men in Blue were struggling significantly as the scoreboard read 116/5 with the loss of Hardik Pandya’s wicket for a duck and the hopes of winning the series with one game extra seemed bleak. View this post on Instagram Nonetheless, the duo of Chahar and vice-captain Bhuneshwar Kumar stitched a remarkable 84-run innings in 15 overs to steal what seemed to be a practically impossible victory and gave a huge boost to the Indian locker room ahead of the third and final ODI of the series. On the contrary, it led to a complete draining of faith and belief that the Sri Lankan roster had in itself. They were completely frustrated and imploding on live television with every boundary Chahar and Kumar hit. Here are three ways in which Deepak Chahar created major conflict within the Sri Lankan team: Mickey Arthur - Burning From WithinMickey Arthur is most entertaining head coach in international cricket. One camera is always dedicated to him.#INDvSL pic.twitter.com/IINE4MxHFd — I'm in hate with you (@Forshitssake25) July 20, 2021 Sri Lankan head coach Mickey Arthur was all smiles as the Indian top-order was dismissed for cheap and names like Pandya and Ishan Kishan fell sooner than expected. However, when Chahar started to swing for the ropes, even the commentators couldn’t help but notice the frowns returning to his forehead. By the time the match was over, Arthur could be seen walking around the dressing room, cursing and red as a tomato. To watch his team lose a game they’d already won was the final nudge he needed to go over the top. War Of Words It didn’t take long before Arthur vented his frustration on the Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka and that too in the middle of the field in the focus of cameras with a live broadcast feed to our television channels. While the captain (who also felt the burden of losing such a match) tried his best to calm the situation down, the coach didn’t want to hear any of it. In Came The VeteransThat conversation between Coach and captain should not have happened on the field but in the dressing room — Russel Arnold (@RusselArnold69) July 20, 2021 Former Sri Lankan player and legend Russel Arnold openly expressed their dissent towards Arthur’s theatrics and called him out ahead of the third and final match. “That conversation between Coach and captain should not have happened on the field but in the dressing room.” Russell Arnold tweeted. “I have told before, Sri Lanka don’t know the winning ways. They have forgotten how to win for the last so many years. It’s tough for them. I told before the lunch, if Sri Lanka takes three wickets in the first 10-15 overs India is going to struggle and actually India struggled. Big effort from Chahar and Bhuvneshwar their and they made them win,” Muttiah Muralitharan added. View the full article
  5. Bollywood has a long history of portraying the hero as the ideal man who is macho, a fighter, a protector and a gentleman who isn’t gentle, but a man. Or as they say in the movies, asli mard! However, the badass dialogues about being a ‘real man’ end up becoming nothing but an endorsement of toxic masculinity. © Zee Studios These movie dialogues must have gotten a big cheer from the audience in the theatre but lately, we have been realising how problematic and false they are. They are actually guilty of fueling the wrong idea of manliness and further promoting social and gender stereotypes that real men are expected to abide by. © Balaji Motion Pictures Here are 7 such iconic dialogues from Bollywood movies that have gotten the idea of ‘being a man’, all wrong: 1. "Ek mard ka sir sirf teen auraton ke saamne jhukta hai. Ek apni ma ke saamne, ek durga maa ke saamne aur..." (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) © Dharma Productions This dialogue reeks of a male’s ego. A real mard bows his head in front of a woman only if she is his mother, a goddess or the woman he loves. Someone needs to tell Rahul that a real man respects everyone equally and doesn’t think his masculinity is compromised if he bows to greet a woman that isn’t one of those three. We don’t know if it was a tactic to propose, but Rani should’ve just run as far as she could have. 2. Yeh kaisi shirt pehni hai, aur ladkiyon wali perfume laga rakhi hai. Tumhara naam Jay Mehra nahi, Gay Mehra hona chiye tha” (Prem Aggan) © FK International Here comes the ultimate gender stereotype about how a man should dress to look like a well, man, and not gay. This woman tells this guy his name should be 'Gay Mehra' because he dresses like a woman. It’s sad how men who wear androgynous clothes are still ridiculed in the same way. 3. Mard ko dard nahi hota (Mard) © MKD Films This popular dialogue has promoted the wrong idea of masculinity for years now and is still used by people to show off their mardangi or assert the same notion on other men. However, it’s a social lie that cages men to feel anything, be it pain or emotions. 4. “Tu ladki ke peeche bhagega, ladki paison ke peeche bhagegi. Tu paison ke peeche bhagega, ladki tere peeche bhagegi" (Wanted) © Zee Studios According to Bhai's logic, the only thing any man ever needs to get the girl is dollar bills. If you have an impressive bank balance, women will run after you blindly, otherwise, you aren’t worthy of dating. No wonder, a man’s value in an arranged marriage is reduced to how much he’s earning. 5. “Ladki jab roti hai na bahut saare reasons hote hai ... par jab ladka rota hai ... reason ladki hi hoti hai” (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!) © Balaji Motion Pictures This line literally translates to ‘men don’t cry’. Or rather, men aren’t allowed to cry. Unless, of course, a girl broke his heart. Then, it’s allowed. It perpetuates the most harmful social stereotype that men don’t show their feelings and sobbing for little things is simply out of the question. 6. Usne teri khuddari ko lalkara hai, Kya kar raha hai yaar… mard ban mard (Dil Chahta Hai) © Excel Entertainment As much as we love this movie and find this scene funny, the dialogue is plain problematic. Aamir urges Saif to man up and confront his girlfriend for disconnecting his call in rage. It shows a man isn’t ‘a man’ if he puts up with his girlfriend’s tantrums, not a khuddar one, for sure. 7. Bande bike kyun chalate hai, macho dikhne ke liye … jean kyun pehente hai, macho dikhne ke liye. Bike ho ya ghar, handle hamesha apne haath mein. Warna bhabhi kabhi izzat nahi karegi (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi) © Yash Raj Films If society wasn’t enough to put pressure on men to shoulder all the responsibilities of a household, there are friends like Bobby who make sure the patriarchy is still alive and thriving. And, the thing about looking macho is where we go wrong and encourage toxic masculinity. View the full article
  6. The world hasn’t been a very rosy place to live in for a while now, and society doesn’t seem to be making it any easier, what with its stereotypes, unrealistic expectations and superficial beauty standards that it keeps on setting. And despite the popular opinion, men aren’t all that better off than women either. Subjected to similar scrutiny, especially when it comes to looking a certain way, men are also pressured by the unrealistic beauty standards that the industry has set for them. The photoshopped pictures that we see making rounds on social media, the several filters that celebrities use on their images are all contributing to making the men around us feel more conscious and guarded every single day. © iStock Opening up about just that, were a bunch of men on a thread on Reddit, where they were asked, “How do you avoid insecurity of your body image when you see other guys have better body shape?”. From hitting the gym, giving themselves a pep talk, trying to see the silver lining, men revealed all that they are trying to do to manage the everyday body issues they face. © Reddit One guy wrote, “There will always be some better then you, so just be the best person you can be and learn to love that,” and honestly, it didn’t just make sense, it was also a shortcut to a much happier life. © Reddit Another user shared how he tries to hit the gym to deal with his insecurities. He wrote, “Go to the gym abs get in shape. My quality of life grows exponentially the better shape I am in.” © Reddit One guy spilt a few truth bombs in his response as he ended up writing, “Realize that the People you want to look like, want to look different themselves. Everyone has insecurities about their appearance.” Couldn’t say we didn’t agree with him! © Reddit A user also tried to see the bigger picture, quite literally so, as he wrote, “I see the Marvel guys and I remember that they're paid to look like the way they do where I, on the other hand, am just existing. I work out for my mental health.” The thread garnered over a 100 different answers from different kinds of men and it made us realise just how many men face the scrutiny of conforming to the beauty standards that have already been set. However, it was good to see that most men are trying to talk themselves out of the need to change themselves and instead, accept them for who they are. View the full article
  7. There was a meme post doing the rounds on social media over the weekend, which read ‘We went from no hospital beds in May to no hotel rooms in Manali in two months’. As funny as it sounds right now, it won’t be when the third wave actually hits us, which according to the experts is inevitable. © iStock Manali has been the top trending travel destination right now and the reason is that the state government has relaxed lockdown curbs and allowed people to enter without an RT-PCR report. The step was taken for the ease of travel, not tourism. However, the streets of Manali are jam-packed with tourists right now who could actually be responsible for inviting the third wave in India sooner than expected. © Twitter Not just Manali, some other tourist places in India are also likely to be crammed with people who tested positive for ‘wanderlust’ during the lockdown and have this ‘zindagi na milegi dobara’ attitude towards life. © iStock Here are 5 tourist places in India that aren’t asking travellers for an RT-PCR, which you could totally steer clear of if you are not a Covidiot: 1. Ooty © iStock No negative covid report is required in Tamil Nadu. But if you are flying to Coimbatore and then taking a cab to Ooty, your flight might require one. Tamil Nady was among the worst-hit states during the second wave and new cases of delta plus variant have also been detected lately. Just saying. 2. Coorg © iStock Karnataka opened the state borders for travellers post unlock for people from all states. However, if you are travelling via train from Maharashtra, Punjab and Kerala, hard luck. Train travellers from these states need to carry a negative RT-PCR report. 3. Delhi © iStock For all those who have been missing Dilli ki chaat and have pending wedding shopping to do from Chandni Chowk, you can go without getting tested for Covid. 4. Shimla © iStock Manali is just one of the numerous holiday destinations in Himachal Pradesh. The day it unlocked borders, there was a traffic jam on the Kalka-Shimla highway. So, if you are planning a vacation, rest assured you would not have empty streets to yourself for sure. 5. Chandigarh © iStock If you have gotten one dose of vaccination, which we hope you have by now, you can travel to Chandigarh and the entire Punjab with your vaccination certificate. No RT-PCR required. However, we recommend you get tested after your travel and follow safety precautions, still. Or better yet, stay home, get fully vaccinated and let this pandemic end?

  11. Britney Spears became an iconic pop singer post her smash debut single 'Baby One More Time' in 1998. However, things were not as rosy for the star as a lot of people thought. The singer has recently urged the court to end the conservatorship of her father. Jamie Spears was put in charge as Britney's conservator in 2008, after which he got control over most of the aspects of her life. While he was a temporary measure earlier, he was made permanent by the US courts and has been 'controlling' Britney's life for the last 12 years. © Instagram/Britney_FC Britney was hospitalised, following a psychiatric treatment, which was widely reported. In a recent video link, Britney went on to say that she wants her life back and isn't happy about it. She also pleaded to the judge saying, "I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I want changes, I deserve changes." Here are ways in which Spears claimed her father controls her life: 1. Control Over Intimate Details © Instagram/Britney_FC Britney mentioned that she wants to live a normal life, get married and have kids. She told the court, "I want to be able to get married and have a baby." The singer has two children from her previous marriage and wished to get her IUD removed, but the conservatorship didn't allow her to do so, due to medical care control. She is also banned from seeing her friends. 2. Involvement In Personal Life © Instagram/Britney_FC Back in 2009, there were leaked voicemails unveiled by her lawyer. In this, her father used the visitation rights with her two children against her, so she could stop fighting the conservatorship in the court. 3. Forced To Perform Against Her Will © Instagram/Britney_FC She also spoke about how the management threatened her in 2018 if she didn't do her concerts. They also reported to her therapists, that Britney wasn't taking medications. Britney added to this that it was threatening and scary. She also said, "The people who did this to me should not be able to walk away so easily … I’m not here to be anyone’s slave. I can say no to a dance move.” 4. Control Over Most Matters © Instagram/Britney_FC Under the conservatorship of James Spears, Britney has no control over any personal decision. That power has been given to Jamie and her attorney, Andrew Wallet. Jamie was given the rights to control Britney's estate and health, which means discussing business opportunities and control of her personal life. Whereas the attorney controlled the financial assets. 5. Not Being Able To Make Basic Life Decisions © Instagram/Britney_FC Spears also told the court, that the conservatorship was supposed to help her, but she is unable to make even the most basic life decision and can't spend her own money. She mentioned that the laws need to change, so she can live a full life. She also added that the people who control need to know that they actually work for her. Even her fans started a movement called #FreeBritney that made a resurgence again after they realised how her father is running the singer's life. © Reuters The FreeBritney.net site said she is not allowed to enter into contracts without seeking legal permission. In fact, she needs to seek permission even to leave her house. The movement also went out on the streets, to end the control over her life. 6. Unable To Speak With The Media © Instagram/Britney_FC She is also barred from speaking with the media. She added, I can’t say one thing … I have a right to use my voice.” As per reports, Spears wants the conservatorship to end soon, as she doesn't want to be taken advantage of anymore. 7. Lack Of EmpathySpears also said that the doctors put her on medications that made her feel drunk and she wasn't even allowed to change in private or drive in her own or her boyfriend's car. As per the news, she was also forced into rehab and had to pay $60,000. Her father showed no concern and every little thing had to be approved by her dad. View the full article
  12. The Pandemic has not just changed the way we perceive ‘normal’ in terms of what we wear, how we step out, how we eat or how we cannot meet friends and family, but it has also put a dragging brake on all travel plans, regardless of you wanting a drive to Kasauli, or saving up for that Summer trip to Italy. While most of us are in our cocoons and refuse to risk travelling anywhere for a long time, some people cannot stop the bug from biting them and will still face all odds to make that travel plan happen. So in view of the current global scenario, here are 6 countries which are actually allowing Indian tourists with a few conditions attached: 1. RussiaThe world’s largest country is opening its doors for Indians. Besides the recent buzz around vaccine tourism, you can actually visit the country with a valid visa, a negative Covid report 72 hours prior to your travel and on filling a health declaration form on arrival. 2. IcelandIf one has the money to shell out, a desire to go to see this beautiful magical place, and is fully vaccinated, then the pandemic won’t affect the travel plan. A luxury travel company called Luxe by KFT is reportedly offering a private flight to Iceland from India with no quarantine. There are work from hotel packages, and even a luxe explorer package for travel enthusiasts. The one-way ticket for economy class costs around Rs 110,000 onwards. 3. SerbiaYou can travel here though the flights are super limited, given the current situation. A Covid negative report not older than 48 hours is required, but this is non-applicable for passengers younger than 12 years. 4. RwandaIf Safari and a classic African vacation is your vibe, and the pandemic is not going to stop you, then you can actually visit Rwanda with a few conditions attached. Besides a negative report, you will have to fill a passenger locator form, then go to a government authorised hotel to get tested once again. You can find the list of hotels and more information on www.rbc.gov.rw. 5. TurkeyYou have to be under quarantine for 14 days and the country has some moderate restrictions in place for now. Your Covid negative report cannot be older than 72 hours before your flight and also, you must test negative after your quarantine period is over in order to finally get out and move around. 6. EgyptThe requirements to travel here include a 72 hour prior test, and a rapid test on arrival. In case one tests positive, then one can either choose to fly back or quarantine in the country until they test negative. Health insurance is also mandatory. View the full article
  13. With the World Test Championship finals scheduled to kick off from today onwards, the captain of the Indian cricket side Virat Kohli, and New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson were involved in a customary photo-shoot session. Standing next to the prestigious WTC Mace, which would go to the winning team at the end of the one-off Test at Southampton, the two legends showed off their exclusive Test jerseys which were made solely for this one-off Test. SEE. YOU. TOMORROW! #TeamIndia 🇮🇳 #WTC21 Final pic.twitter.com/7KwUMDGg4t — BCCI (@BCCI) June 17, 2021 The Indian kit moved away from the traditional back font and moved towards blue as the colour contrasted with the bright white shirts and trousers with stripes running around the neck in the sweaters. View this post on Instagram On the other hand, the Kiwis decided on the more classic look and stuck to the black and white with relatively thinner stripes around the neck. View this post on Instagram Unfortunately, when Kohli and Williamson stood next to each other, one couldn't help but notice how faded out the Blackcaps’ kit looked compared to the bright Indian jersey. Fans were instantly onto it and started trolling them with recommendations to have their jerseys sponsored by Indian detergent brands like Tide, Nirma, and Ujala. pic.twitter.com/zUbHVzuCHA — Piyush Pastor ❁ (@piyushpastor) June 17, 2021normal detergent vs rin : pic.twitter.com/IPno4gXKel — Pranjul Sharma (@SharmaaJie) June 18, 2021chaunk gaye?! pic.twitter.com/SAoYvzPZgv — monica (@monicas004) June 17, 2021Nirma official sponsor of team India #WTCFinal pic.twitter.com/HjwPGBHkTQ — Ankur Verma (@iankurv) June 17, 2021 However, the brightness of Kohli’s jersey may not have any impact on the outcome of the game if the England rains continue to become a huge hindering factor across five days and the reserved day, according to the weather forecast. Ahead of match-time on day one, it is reported that the weather is improving by the minute and the chances of seeing some game-time on Friday still exist, although, fans from either side have begun to lose faith and have now started to make peace with the fact that the first-ever WTC finals may end in a draw. Good news from Southampton: Weather is improving each minute, we will get a game hopefully on Day 1. — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) June 18, 2021 If by some miracle, the Test match does get enough time for the two sides to play high-level cricket and in the end, a winner is declared, they will not only get the WTC mace but will also earn a massive Rs 11.71 crore ($1.6 million) while the losing side or the runners-up will get an additional bonus of Rs 5.85 crore ($8,00,000).

When one mentions the term Sarkari Naukri, most people will picture the quintessential government employee from that famous series Office Office starring Pankaj Kapur as Mr Mussadi Lal, who is an aam admi facing the wrath of people working in a government office. Trust me, we all have grown up listening to the tales of how an uncle employed in the LIC or the SBI is enjoying the perks even after retirement and that a corporate job will never give you that kind of respect which comes with a government job. However, there is more to this tag than mere white-collar jobs requiring you to sit at a desk and work from 9 to 5. Here are some high-risk government jobs which are not just cool but extremely rewarding for anyone who dares to take them up: 1. RAW Agent © BCCL We all have watched enough movies to get an idea of how the life of a secret agent or an undercover cop is layered with risks. While the adrenaline rush is an advantage for some, this job is extremely tough and requires you to risk your life in the name of national security. 2. DRDO Researcher © DRDO Not all engineers go to IIM’s or land up a software job. Some of them have the passion to do some mad research and contribute to the country’s military technology and that’s where this dynamic profile comes into place. The risk is not physical as such but your research contributes to the future of technology so, naturally, the recruitment process is tough. 3. ISRO Scientist © TOI Another extremely high potential and risky government job out there. ISRO is the national space agency and the reason behind India’s success in the space technology world. Being a scientist here means you carry a lot of trade secrets and while that’s thrilling, it is an extremely rewarding service to contribute towards the country’s bright future. 4. The Armed Forces © Twitter No amount of justification can probably explain the daring and the risky nature of this commendable job which constitutes not just the Indian Army, but our Navy, Air Force and even our brave coast guards. The wonderful brave defence personnel who are working day and night for the protection of this country are the very reason we get to sleep in peace. 5. Forest Ranger © YouTube This government profession is also for the daring at heart. As the name suggests, your job as a forest ranger mostly consists of you guarding and protecting the flora and fauna, the wildlife and even the tribal life of the area designated to you. One needs to hold a bachelor's degree in a field related to Zoology, Agriculture, Botany or anything from this field and clear the Forest Reserve exam ( both written and physical). You get to live in the lap of Mother Nature, travel to lands restricted to the general public, while protecting the land at the same time. 6. Intelligence Bureau Officer © Twitter Another important government job related to the field of national security, an IB officer’s duty includes staying vigilant 24*7, making plans to keep our country safe from outside terror activities and threats and predict future attacks. 7. Archaeologist © Twitter_joseph T Noony One needs to clear the UPSC exam to be recruited by the ASI and work as an archaeologist in India. The main risk that one faces is saving the origins of any piece of the history they touch or research. This is a very satisfying government job for people who are passionate about human history and wish to contribute to this field. View the full article
  15. Paras Chabbra is called the king of reality shows. He has been a part of some of India's big reality shows, including MTV Splitsvilla Season 5 and Bigg Boss 13. For the unversed, Paras also ventured into Bollywood with a musical thriller Midsummer Midnight Mumbai in 2014. Not just that, he has also featured in other shows Badho Bahu, Hamari Adhuri Kahani and Karn Sagini. © Instagram/Paras Chabbra © Instagram/Paras Chabbra Speaking of his career, Paras spoke about being offered several shows and was asked to do intimate scenes. He further said he his 'own boundaries' for such scenes. Paras mentioned in a leading daily that he doesn't want to go the 'porn star' route. He said "Boundaries might not be there on any platform but I have my own boundaries. I have been offered projects recently which required me to go intimate and overbold. But I feel that rarely are they required in a show. There is mostly no connection of bold scenes with the storyline and they are there to create a buzz,” © Instagram/Paras Chabbra Paras also said in today's time, that makers show almost everything of an actor and actress. He said, 'I do not want to be a porn star, I want to be an actor'. As for Bigg Boss 13, Paras left the show during the finale and was later in a reality show, Mujhse Shaadi Karoge. Since the show didn't do well, it came to an end amid the pandemic. Apart from that, Paras has also done some music videos with Bigg Boss contestant Mahira Sharma. © Instagram/Paras Chabbra In a recent interview, he spilt the beans around his relationship with Mahira and spoke about his future plans. He confessed that he still wants to marry her and she is a good friend. As per reports, he has also purchased a new house in the same building as Mahira's in Mohali. © Instagram/Paras Chabbra What do you think of this news? Let us know in the comments below.

  16. Not. A. Sorry. Story. Guys. There I said it. Before one gets fixated on the key phrases ‘gender-neutral upbringing’ and ‘single dad’, and decides that maybe in the spirit of pride month this is gonna be another personal account about coming out of the closet, let me clarify that it's not. Well, in all seriousness, this is more of a coming-of-age story than out of the closet. A story of a '90s kid who was born to a set of parents who may not be ‘woke’ enough to know the exact meaning of LGBTQ+ but have been liberal enough to raise a child in an environment free from gender stereotypes. Yes, even in the 90s when the phrase gender-neutral parenting wasn’t even popular, let alone it becoming a movement. Here’s how my parents, and when I lost my mother to cancer at 7, my dad alone endeavoured to raise me beyond gender rules. Why am I telling this story btw? For it has helped me navigate life better, and metamorph into a more confident, compassionate, and capable human being. It may just help you too. Toys Have No Gender. Come To My Tea-Party © Imgur My parents didn't have a child for a long time. But with tons of Mannats and doctor’s visits, came my brother into the world after eight long years of marriage. And next, two years later, came me. We were precious, all kids are, but our parents decided to never say no to their rainbow babies for anything. So, when at a toy shop, I showed interest in buying dolls, I never heard a no. While my elder brother loved cars and animal soft toys, I enjoyed playing with dolls, throwing imaginary tea parties and playing house-house. My dad would be my biggest cheerleader, I remember he once helped me throw a birthday party for my doll ‘Annie’ (my favourite from my huge collection of 20 dolls). He bought me patties and jam rolls, and helped me send out handwritten invites to friends to come over to celebrate Annie’s birthday and her plain gorgeousness. I soon graduated from dolls to babelaids, board games and gully cricket but in retrospect, I feel that the whole experience of playing with dolls inculcated in me a sense of deep nurturing and care. Today, I love gardening and have a far deeper understanding and connection with nature than my peers. __ECOMPRODUCT__1661__ Talent Has No Gender Rule, Pursue What Excites You © iStock By the time my doll phase fizzled out, I had lost my mom. Our happy lives living by the adage, hum do, hamare do, came to a standstill. I remember feeling like Alice In Wonderland, lost, blindfolded. I tucked my dolls away, and with a sense of deep-seated grief, resorted to dancing. I had to find a way to release my anger and grief. I would cross-dress for fancy dress competitions, I once played a japanese lass and charmed everyone by singing ‘Sayonara Sayonara’ and on the same day in elocution category recited a poem about a Sainik (soldier). My dad, Behenji (my bua/aunt) and Laali (my aunt) would encourage me with equal pride to do both. By middle-school I developed a keen interest in playing Basketball and Lawn Tennis in school and at the same time I would come home to resume my Belly dancing and contemporary dance lessons. My dad bought me the best Lawn Tennis racket trending at that time and also gladly paid for my dance class. Little ways in which it shaped my thinking, and very early on I learnt that talent can’t be confined in gender boxes and we must pursue what excites us. Be it dance, gardening or music. __ECOMPRODUCT__1779__ Love & Acceptance Always Win Over Bullying © Scrolldroll I was subjected to immense bullying in school by my peers for being more artistic and ahead in elocution, and bullying is something that can scar you for life. But I would come back home to so much love and acceptance that everything else would look small in front of that. My dad would daily ask us, both my brother and I, sabse bahadur kaun (who’s the bravest) and we both would scream ‘ME’. And that affirmation of being brave would empower us in ways that no bullying could eat into. I remember sobbing like an infant after listening to Sridevi’s ending speech in the film English Vinglish, not just because it made me miss my mom terribly, but because the point that she made, that family will always accept you and would never be judgemental, hit home. Being Considerate To The Needs Of All Genders © Pinterest While I was being bullied in school for being more creative than others, back home I was fostering a stronger bond with my sister (cousin). We would enjoy reading fashion magazines with equal ease as playing board games. My sister would often send me to buy sanitary napkins for her and she would have me repeat ‘ask for with wings, okay?’. And my dad would sit and listen, no awkwardness or embarrassment would kill the vibe of the room. We were encouraged not to carry a slip that we could stealthily pass to the chemist but say it aloud. Something that in retrospect has taught me to be more accommodative to the needs of all genders and establish that difference is a positive attribute. Cooking & Cleaning Isn’t A Girl’s Job © Instagram Though my dad always loved cooking, after my mom’s passing, it became more like a duty (Till he remarried and had somebody to ‘share’ the work with). Growing up watching my dad cook or do the dishes, helped us rise above the gender roles. And it also prepared us better for the future. So, last month when my entire family tested COVID positive, except me, the household chores and responsibilities didn’t seem overwhelming to me at all. I just took up to it naturally, thanks to my dad for leading by example that there are no gender roles when it comes to household chores. __ECOMPRODUCT__1663__ There Is No Such Thing As A Woman’s Drink © iStock My dad who has been a hardcore whiskey drinker all his life, gets equally happy to see (my brother and I) sip our wine. Never did he ever tell us that men must drink only whiskey or scotch. In fact, he taught us the right way of drinking. He would tell us that there are three D’s of drinking —Dilution, Duration and Diet, always keep up with these three drinking etiquettes and you will be sorted in life. Thank you Papa, for that valuable lesson. Cheers! __ECOMPRODUCT__1780__ Final ThoughtsFor most people, gender is the first label we receive. You are born and the nurse whispers, it’s a boy. The whisper turns into a chatter, and the chatter into a celebration. IT’S A BOY! Soon after starts the conditioning and the stereotyping, and in the process parents often tend to forget to allow their children to have a mind, choice, and preference of their own. But, this Father’s Day I wanna thank my dad for teaching me the valuable lesson that it takes no compromise to give people their rights. So, thank you Papa. And, thank you all, for coming to my Ted Talk (J). Explore More View the full article
  17. There was a time when Rock Star Yash was immensely popular, but predominantly among the audiences of the southern film industries, mainly, the Kannada speaking one. However, in the last few years, that has changed completely. © Hombale Films Now, Yash enjoys a massive fan base even in Hindi-speaking regions. Apart from having a great sense of style and fashion, a great sense of grooming and a charisma that just grips onto you, he, obviously, is a very gifted actor. © Instagram/thenameisyash Here are some of his best movies that his fans swear by, which is clearly why fans of Kannada movies just can’t enough of him 1. Drama © Jayanna Combines Drama is a romantic comedy thriller, and of the finest films that the Kannada film industry has made in the last decade or so. Yash plays the character of a student who has set out to avenge his girlfriend being slapped by the college principal. What ensues is a comically charged but gripping story. The movie performed extremely well at the Box Office and garnered largely positive reviews from critics. 2. Moggina Manasu © E. K. Entertainers One of Yash’s earliest films, Moginna Manasu is again, based around the life of college students and deals with themes like love, friendship, and the everyday struggles that students face. The movie is shot from the perspective of one of the women in the group of friends and tells a very poignant story. This film too was a massive hit at the box office, and much appreciated by critics. 3. Raja Huli © Lakshmisri Combines Yash plays the titular character in this one, who’s the son of a rich landlord in a village. Like the previous two films, the themes of friendship and love are vital aspects in this film as well. Yash’s character gets falsely implicated in a murder, and how he proves his innocence is what the movie is about. Again, it did phenomenally well, beating out Krrish 3 in Bangalore, on the week of its release. 4. Mr & Mrs Ramachari © Jayanna Combines Released back in 2014, Mr & Mrs Ramachari is a run of the mill, hardcore romantic drama film, which is also quite comically charged. It had one of the wildest box office runs down south. So much so, that there were a number of remakes in Hindi, Bengali, Tamil & Telugu. 5. Googly © Jayanna Combines Again, a romantic drama that Yash featured in, Googly released in 2013 and is one of the first films from Yash that was dubbed in Hindi. The Hindi-dubbed version for TV was a massive hit across India. Yash plays the role of a brilliant student, who falls in love with a girl, gets his heart broken due to a misunderstanding, becomes a successful businessman, and tries to reconcile things with his ex. The movie is your typical masala, romantic entertainer. Still, so good was the audience response to it, that it is being remade in Bengali. Apparently, a sequel to the original is also in the works. 6. KGF: Chapter 1 © Hombale Films And finally, there is KGF: Chapter 1. You must have been living under a rock if you didn’t see this coming. Thanks to its pan India release, and OTT platforms, KGF took Indian filmgoers by storm. Without a doubt, it was one of the best messianic stories we have had in a really long time. Furthermore, it really established, just how capable Yash is, as an actor. Just look at the excitement people have when they talk about KGF: Chapter 2, and you’ll get what we’re on about. The Bottom Line… We know that there certainly are more films where Yash’s performance was commendable. However, for someone who’s just getting into Kannada films, and has started exploring Yash’s movies, this is the perfect list to follow. View the full article

  19. The trailer of Netflix's Ray is out and finally, perhaps the country will be able to get a taste of the sheer talent that Mr Satyajit Ray embodied. Even though most of the country knows him as the legendary, Honorary Oscar-Winning director that he was, he was so, so much more than just that. For Bengali kids from back in the day, when 'reading' was a thing, Satyajit Ray was nothing short of God. While his brilliance as a director did get recognized worldwide, the magic that he was able to weave as a writer, remains painfully underrated to anyone who does not know how to read Bengali. The iconic characters like Feluda and Professor Shonku, without a shred of doubt, deserve worldwide recognition. © Ananda Publishers Finally, with Netflix's Ray, 4 of his short stories are about to be retold with a modern day twist. Every Ray fan has been wondering one thing ever since the trailer released - which are the 4 original Bengali stories that are being retold here? Clearly, the names that Netflix has given - Forget Me Not, Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa, Bahrupiya, and Spotlight - are not the original nomenclatures. We did a bit of snooping around and found out the original stories that have been retold in Netflix's Ray. Here's everything we know so far. Don't worry, I'm not going to spoil the stories for you. via GIPHY Srijit Mukherjee's 'Forget Me Not' starring Ali Fazal has been taken from the short story 'Bipin Choudhurir Smritibhram', which translates to 'Bipin Choudhuri's Amnesia'. The story is about a man who mysteriously loses his memory, and the peculiar events that unfold post that. © Netflix Vasan Bala's 'Spotlight', starring Harshvarrdhan Kapoor, has been taken from the story with the same name, which is about an actor who is gifted with brilliant looks, but not much acting ability. © Netflix The last one, named 'Bahrupiya', is based on 'Bahuroopi', that translates to polymorphic, or one with multiple faces or identities - like a chameleon. Kay Kay Menon plays a man who has a 'computer job', but is passionate about make-up. This one too is directed by Srijit Mukherjee. View the full article
  20. Local trains, vada pav and cinema are the essence of Mumbai which you don’t find in any city or town in the country. And, apart from these, there is one more element of the city that’s truly unforgettable. We are talking about the Mumbai rains. © iStock Monsoon in Bombay hits you differently and is special for every Mumbaikar no matter what age or profession they belong to. The city experiences heavy rains and although it causes hindrance to daily life and inconvenience to the public, they find joy in schools and offices getting shut and a chance of having steaming hot kothimbir vadi at home. © Dharma Productions The first rains of the season have already made an appearance and since barely anyone is actually venturing outside to enjoy the downpours, here is what you can do while in quarantine.

ChameliThis underrated Bollywood movie starring Kareena Kapoor and Rahul Bose revolves around two characters poles apart from each other who are brought together by Mumbai rains. An investment banker and a street-smart prostitute bond and indulge in deep conversation about life in a night of a heavy downpour. © Red Giant Movies Life In A MetroThe whole plot is about the city that never sleeps and its people hassling through locals and BEST buses. Obviously then, rain which is a huge part of Mumbai is shown in its true spirit. While people meet and fall in love amid the rains, it also shows the chaos it creates. © UTV Motion Pictures Wake Up SidA feel-good movie about a new girl in the city and a college graduate trying to follow his passion and make it on his own who meet and share a small home in Bombay, ‘cause property rates are higher than the buildings. After a lot of walks, dreams and fights, they are reunited by the pehli barish of the season at Marine Drive. © Dharma Productions Dil Toh Pagal HaiWe all grooved to 'Chak Dhoom Dhoom' song as kids whenever it rained and started to believe the whole 'soulmate theory' and how it rains when you meet "the one" while watching this cult movie. Whether or not it rained cats and dogs when you found your soulmate, you could still watch it with them this monsoon. © YRF Aashiqui 2The rain in the movie is basically a third cast member in this movie alongside Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor (our OG rain-obsessed girl). The song shot in the rain smashed at the charts and rain had a very big role to play to make this scene and the song uber romantic and dreamy. © T-Series Whether you are enjoying the Mumbai rains from home or missing them sitting in your hometown, this watchlist could save you from the blues and give you full ‘Bombay rains’ vibes.

  22. Parineeti Chopra has been making headlines for quite some time now, especially with her latest projects. She ventured into Bollywood with Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl and showcased her immaculate acting skills in other projects, including Ishaqzaade, Golmaal Again etc. In a decade, she has established her place in the industry after giving a streak of hits and misses in her career. © Instagram/Parineeti Chopra Recently, Parineeti admitted that she was 'very unhappy' with her work. She also went on to say that she knew she was doing 'bad films' at the time of shooting. © Instagram/Parineeti Chopra In a recent interview, Parineeti spoke about doing some scenes half-heartedly that were not convincing. She told the tabloid, "Yeah, many scenes in many films in the last five years. I was very unhappy with the work I was doing. I had faith in myself, but the filmmakers just wouldn't offer me the parts I was yearning for. I was signing films half-heartedly. I was in a constant state of dissatisfaction." © Instagram/Parineeti Chopra She also added, "I will be forever indebted to three directors--Amol Gupte (Saina), Dibakar Banerjee (Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar), and Ribhu Dasgupta (The Girl On The Train).” When asked if the filmmaker would make any amendments to the scene, she replied, "Had that happened, the films would have turned out to be better. There hasn't been a two-way relationship with the makers, and so, there have been many occasions where I knew it was a bad film and went home unhappy." © Instagram/Parineeti Chopra Parineeti also revealed that she did movies for good work and not money. She said, "Thankfully, I get paid well, and I will never do a film for the wrong reasons. Now, my message to filmmakers is: Please watch my last three films and offer me the roles I would love to do." © Instagram/Parineeti Chopra In one instance, she also went to the producer to return the advance amount, as she didn't want to be a part of the firm. On the work front, after her three massive hits on OTT platforms, Parineeti will be seen in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal, starring Ranbir Kapoor. View the full article

  24. Love stories are warm, fuzzy and leave you feeling like your soul just took a dip in a hot cup of coffee. However, not all love stories are about a human heart beating for another human heart, sometimes love is found in places that are not expected. © Summit Entertainment Here are 7 movies that explored the concept of love between a human and a non-human, giving this genre a very interesting spin: 1. Her © Annapurna Pictures This movie gives you all the ‘feels’ even though it’s a love story between a human and an AI. A lonely man finding love in his voice assistant makes you feel sad and pray for a happy ending for him at the same time. You can probably re-watch it and still feel emotional. Also, 10000 points to Joaquin Phoenix’s marvellous acting skills. 2. Warm Bodies © Summit Entertainment Dubbed as ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and this Shakespearean romance between a human and a zombie is a very interesting tale to witness. The zombie ends up eating the human’s boyfriend and an apocalypse love story follows. 3. Beauty And The Beast © Disney This one is not just a childhood tale brought to life but is a metaphor about finding inner beauty in humans and is one of the oldest stories in this genre. The story is simple, a woman is married to a beast, who is basically a prince living under a curse. True love breaks all barriers, including his curse and they live happily, ever after. 4. Ex-Machina © Film4 Productions An extremely interesting and well-made movie, please watch this in case you still haven’t experienced it. This is more than just a human falling for an AI. This one basically spells out a very scary future for cross-species romance where humans will be or can be manipulated at the hands of a virtual machine, who will take over our emotions and our world. 5. Lars & The Real Girl © Metro Goldwyn Mayer Ryan Gosling plays a loner who is basically anti-social as well.

The Shape Of Water © TSG Entertainment Known as a work of science moulded in magic, this one tugged at everyone’s hearts when it was released back In 2017. Elisa, a janitor, finds love in an amphibious man who is captured at a lab she works at. She gets him home, falls in love with him, as she continues to care for him and the climax, is the perfect ending to this odd tale. 7. Twilight © Summit Entertainment This movie defined teenage love for so many people, it’s not even funny. Bella, a human who falls in love with the pale-faced Edward, a vampire, was a love story that was mocked and adored in equal measure, so much that it is one of the biggest movie franchises in the world.
