  1. The 20-year-old was toying with a loaded gun when he accidentally shot himself and died on the spot
  2. Shahbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shahbaz were released on bail today after the Punjab cabinet green-lit five-day parole
  3. Everybody has a constitutional right to protest, right? Well, then it's really ironic how the farmers who are protesting are getting treated in the most inhuman way that, too on Constitution Day. As part of the Dilli Chalo protest, farmers had been marching towards Delhi to peacefully fight against the Centre's farm laws that would curb their income, leaving them at the "mercy" of big corporates. © Twitter In retaliation to the protest, Haryana police have barricaded the borders and blasted the farmers with water cannons, when it's one of the coldest winters, and used tear gas on them as well. © Twitter The pictures and videos from the borders where the protest is being prevented from moving any further look way too dystopian and people are angry and heartbroken at the treatment of farmers.

  4. All award shows do is highlight how much they don't appreciate the talent and hard work of some of the artists and will always pick a mediocre person over someone well-deserving. Well, at least most of the time. Keeping up with the trend, the Grammys decided to snub the insanely talented The Weeknd as he wasn't nominated for any category. The list of nominations for Grammys 2021 is out and literally no one is happy about it. © Youtube/The Weeknd As mentioned above, The Weeknd was very well deserving of a few nominations this year. Blinding Lights is not just a great song, but it was one of the biggest hits of the year. Even Abel himself called out the Grammys for this bias and everyone is behind him. The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency... — The Weeknd (@theweeknd) November 25, 2020 And, if that wasn't enough, Justin Bieber got a nomination for the most generic song with no substance - Yummy - and even he wasn't happy with that for pretentious reasons. View this post on Instagram A song that just repeats one word over and over again shouldn't be Grammy material in the first place, but expecting an R&B nomination instead of a Pop nomination? That's some next-level stuff. image 2 (Justin Bieber/Youtube) Come on, Justin. And, this is not surprising since he literally begged people to stream his comeback song a few months ago and it was hilarious and sad at the same time. No one is pitching two artists against each other, people are just angry at this inexplicable unjust behavior.

  5. This year, most Bollywood actors were either chilling at home or vacationing in the Maldives during Diwali. The huge list of celebrities at the Maldives also included Tiger Shroff with fellow actor Disha Patani, among others. View this post on InstagramTiger ditched his signature style that usually consists of functional outfits for a pair of yellow hot shorts there. However, now that he's back home and is also shooting for his upcoming films Heropanti 2 and Rambo, he's going the extra mile in adhering to the COVID-19 safety precautions. Now that Tiger is back to his daily grind, he was recently spotted in a rather strange pair of jeans. Take a look at his outfit here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani He was seen wearing a sleeveless hoodie with a pair of graphic espadrilles. The pair of jeans that he wore were so long that he literally had to pull them up while walking. Take a look at the long silhouette here: © Viral Bhayani While Tiger has worn all sorts of jeans, ranging from one with giant pockets to ripped silhouettes, we wonder how manageable it is to wear a pair of jeans that is three times your size. In Tiger's case, the jeans are definitely not his size. However, the fact he's worn them anyway suggests that he's up to something. He is definitely trying to kickstart a new trend here with super-long jeans. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Are you convinced to get a pair for yourself just like Tiger's? View the full article

  8. A global pandemic is going on, and most of us haven't taken a getaway vacation in months. The ones lucky enough to still have a job are working overtime to stay employed, as the entire year has been absolute chaos. God knows all of us deserve a vacation right now, but even that privilege is reserved for the most privileged of the privileged. Looks like almost the entire of Bollywood has been escaping to the Maldives in shifts and trading in masks and hand sanitizers for private beaches and blue skies. Is there some sort of Bollywood discount going on for this Maldives vacation? Is there an Illuminati meeting or something going on there? Why are so many famous people suddenly choosing the same place? We have Tara Sutaria bringing in her 25th birthday in the best possible way.

  9. Strong, muscular, tall, macho, suave - we wouldn't blame you if you thought we were describing a man. The image associated with men has always inclined towards the physical aspect of the balance rather than the mental or even emotional one. Words like sensitive, compassionate, empathetic, woke have been used rather modestly when it comes to men. A man has been perceived rather unidimensionally for ages now. To reignite the conversation on International Men's Day and actually understand the nuances of mental health from the horse's mouth, we got in touch with men from various walks of life. It's been commendable to see each of these stars letting us inside their darkest moments and how they overcame them, breaking stereotypes, and proving that it's okay for a man to feel weak and vulnerable. Here's Varun Sharma opening up in a tell-all exclusive interview with Harshleen from MensXP: As I wait for the phone to ring and find Varun on the other side, I go through a few questions in my head. We are gearing up for a conversation around how masculinity has evolved and how male mental health has seen a change (for better or worse) for International Men’s Day. Being a very prime face of our generation, I look forward to hearing what his opinion on this subject is since it is not every day that you get a chance to have a ‘non filmy’ chat with an actor. In the first few minutes of our conversation, there is a sudden fall of formality and it is replaced by an aura of casual warmth that you will find in Varun’s voice which makes you forget the hierarchy or the format of any questionnaire you have in your mind. His genuineness takes centre stage, and this Q&A then turns into a tête-à-tête, like catching up with an old friend who moved to another city. © PaperPlanes Media We start by discussing the unforeseen consequences that have fallen upon most people in this global pandemic. I ask him about job loss, the coping mechanism behind it and how it has adversely affected a lot of people. Varun explains how sustainability is a major issue in his industry and hence mental stability is an ongoing task for most people. The only thing that got him going in this pandemic was thickening his bond with the people he loves the most. Our conversation moves to how important it is to initiate more dialogue around mental health in men and how we support each other through this journey. How do you feel the pandemic affected the mental health of the men in our society and how do you manage to keep your sanity in check as your career demands you to be in the public eye all the time? “Mental health is not restricted to any gender I feel. If your work, your life has been badly affected in the pandemic, then the amount of pressure is actually the same for literally anyone.” He has a very honest and a very simple approach to keeping his sanity in check. “The amazing thing about being an actor is that we just cannot lie about a few things. It is all out there. What you see is exactly what you get. If you are successful and making money in this industry, it will show because you will be getting more work.” In this industry , struggling and waiting for work can take a massive toll on anyone’s mental health. There is immense pressure to look for work, there are certain expectations and dreams tied in everyone’s heart when they come fleeting to the city of dreams to enter this glamorous industry, which also has a big appetite of eating up anyone’s belief in themselves if they don’t keep their heart and mind in check. Varun is obviously aware of this emotion and the logic which he gave me about how we need a paradigm shift to make everything and everyone feel ‘better’ is actually fantastic. “A lot of struggling actors and people looking for work, going for auditions forget the fact that ‘looking for a job’ is also a job in itself. I realised this simple fact when I was constantly going out for work every day and just auditioning every day. People would then ask me, ‘audition to de diya, but dikhega kab? Picture kab aa rahi hai?’. I finally established that there was no need to lie about the process and take more mental stress than what I was enduring already. I was looking for work and that itself was a part of my ‘job’. Since you are the most recognised millennial face in the comic genre of cinema, is it difficult for you to make someone understand that you also can have ‘bad days’ & that you’re not always the ‘funny one’ in real life? “Just because I am lazy or having a bad day, I cannot always just walk out of my house in my night shorts or uncombed hair. That crazy pressure constantly remains & haunts you.” Varun explains how the benign power of social media affects everyone adversely and ends up creating a stiff competition that no one really needs. There is a constant pressure of looking good and being presentable when you are stepping out of your house. As far as keeping his sanity in check is concerned, he’s figured out his mantra quite well. “You know, I love to just think. Thinking is in fact my favourite hobby. Every week I take out a few hours for myself, cut out social media and go for long walks where I am only contemplating and analysing my life.” He agrees when I ask him if maintaining his cool is a successful strategy in fooling anyone to believe that he is feeling okay. “Yes, sometimes I am in my own zone, and someone will pass by smiling at me, and I will smile back. People mostly don’t believe that I am tired or I am having a bad day. I am not complaining though. The way I perceive this, I feel that at least someone is looking at me and smiling. I just blend in with this notion that I am making someone happy and that gives me happiness. There have been times when people relate my on-screen characters to my real life persona and legit ask ‘bhai kuch funny bata do, koi funny dialogue bol do’. I have to explain that speaking a dialogue is a part of my job, I cannot make up something instantly!" © PaperPlanes Media How has your experience in the industry shaped the chart of your mental health? "My journey from Jalandhar to Mumbai was not limited to getting a one-way ticket to fulfil my dreams. It came with nights of turmoil, emotional turbulence and a toll on sanity that pushed me to continue working." Varun owes his source of positivity to his mother and his sister, who continue to be his pillar of strength and support even today. “My mom used to send me money for my expenses and even pay my rent when I was out of money. She instilled her trust in me and supported my dream to become an actor.” Varun is quick to add that his most important piece of advice to anyone struggling or wanting to give up is the need to remember that life only gets easy when you have a strong emotional support system. The loneliness that follows the innumerable rejections can hit you and sometimes when you lose your own hope, you need to borrow strength from people who believe in you. Talking about rejection, the most obvious cycle of emotions that every actor has gone through in Bollywood, Varun opens about the perception that got attached to him over the initial years of his struggle. “I got rejected a lot. I was told I need to lose weight, get abs, and work on myself and my physique. I was constantly reminded that Bollywood main body chahiye hoti hai." © PaperPlanes Media We saw him entertain everyone as the witty Chucha in his stupendous debut Fukrey and there has been no looking back since then. So I ask the most obvious question towards the end of your conversation. What changed? How did you crack the role eventually after overcoming all hurdles & making your struggle come to a happy ending? “See,I told myself that I need to be happy with who I am and that’s what got me the role. If I wasn’t being myself and the way I was, I would have never cracked Fukrey or landed that role. If you see, Chucha is not a character with chiselled abs, a lean figure or someone with a quintessential Bollywood type body. Physical fitness is very important but blindly aiming for something is not required. You need to enjoy the process and be happy with yourself first.” On that note, after I have marvelled at this wonderful confidence and the immense positivity in his voice, I ask him to tell me if that first break changed everything drastically. Did life become wonderful overnight or his heart and mind felt at peace immensely? My answers were there in the personal anecdotes he shared with me. “After I signed the film, I called my mother and told her that I have signed a movie and that I will be on the poster. There was silence on the call, which was unusual. Then it struck me that what is the real meaning of ‘silence speaks louder than words’ and I was excited for my mom and my sister to watch the film”. Post the screening of Fukrey, an overwhelmed Varun was being showered with praises but his heart was struck on what his mother and sister thought of the movie. “My sister told me that she will have to watch the film again in order to tell me what she thinks of it. I was confused because it was a comedy, light hearted movie and I wondered why she said that. She then explained that when she was watching the movie, she was looking at me and tracing my journey from being a Bollywood fan to being on the screen now. I was like wow didi, ye bohot deep hai!”. This emotional epiphany that his family shared continues to be mental strength on days he’s not sure about what or where life is going. © PaperPlanes Media If there is one thing I have concluded from our conversation on mental health, then it is the stark realisation that it is not important what others think about us or how they judge us. That will not make or break us, but it is what we think and how we judge ourselves that shapes who and what we become. Varun is a wonderful example of someone who is aware that life comes with struggles, bad days, and the intensity to shake your mental state, but with self-love, confidence and a little help from your loved ones, there is no mountain that you cannot climb.

  10. While 5G has already kicked off in many parts of the world, we're still struggling with 4G here in India. Yes, you can buy a 5G compatible phone in India today but it's going to be useless until we get 5G connections from our service providers. As of now, there's literally no info about 5G rollout in India. But guess what? There are some companies overseas that are already talking about 6G. The new industry group "Next G Alliance" has been set up with a goal of advancing "North American Global leadership over 6G early development." View the full article

  13. On Monday, BCCI confirmed that the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli will be taking a paternity leave from India’s tour of Australia and will return home after the first of four Test matches in Adelaide. In a press release, BCCI secretary Jay Shah stated: “Kohli had informed the BCCI about his plans to return to India after the first Test in Adelaide. The BCCI has granted paternity leave to the Indian captain. He will return after the first Test against Australia in Adelaide.” JUST IN: Virat Kohli will be granted paternal leave after the #AUSvIND Test in Adelaide. He will return to India after the first game. pic.twitter.com/EFQfajppbE — ICC (@ICC) November 9, 2020 After Rohit Sharma opted for the paternity leave back in the final days of 2018, Kohli’s decision to choose staying with the family sets great precedent for the future generations of cricketers to come. On the other hand, back in 2015, former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had made a different decision of serving the Indian cricket team over spending time with the family when he missed the birth of his daughter Ziva as they were playing in Australia at the moment. Dhoni missed Ziva’s birthday for national duty & Kohli himself didn’t left his team & played on the day his father died, always thought he’ll play the all important BGT especially for the challenge that series brings & for its WTC context but then this got to be his personal call https://t.co/pNUNvAdTpu — Abhishek Kumar Singh (@cricketesque) November 9, 2020 In a conversation with the reporters at Adelaide, Dhoni had said: "I have been blessed with a baby daughter. Mum and daughter both are good… but as of now I am on national duties so I think everything else can wait. The World Cup is a very important campaign."Both cricketers took very different measures towards a similar situation but unfortunately social media obviously had to slap their biased opinions on people’s personal choices: And then there was MS DHONI who didn't even leave his team in the middle of Australia Tour even when his daughter was born. Also world cup was nearing. "I am on national duty everything else can wait" - MS DHONI'S answer to media when asked about the birth of his 1st child — ON (@heyoncar) November 9, 2020हर कोई धोनी नही होता — अनुपम अग्निहोत्री .🇮🇳.TPN (@Im_AnuAgnihotri) November 9, 2020People often use Dhoni’s decision to not go back home as the greatest example of professionalism in Indian cricket and while ‘Captain Cool’ did make a great sacrifice for the country while tending to India’s World Cup campaign instead of spending precious time with his wife and child, questioning Virat Kohli’s choice to do so must not be criticised. As far as professionalism is concerned, the entire Indian bandwagon for the longest format of the game is built on Kohli’s passion for red-ball cricket. In countless interviews he has talked about his love for Test cricket and how he admires how an athlete’s prowess is truly tested in the particular format. Kohli’s willingness to choose family over a couple of matches encourages other, smaller names of the roster to also take a step forward and make such decisions without worrying about what the Indian cricket board or the fan base might think of them.

  14. When we come to think of it, what is love at first sight if not a strong first impression? We have all heard of the phrase “personality matters more” when it comes to making a first impression. However, some men end up confusing the meaning of “good personality” with “good looks”. Just to be clear, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, i.e. it’s subjective. Personality on the other hand is who you are, inside and out. No matter how expensive your clothes are or how witty your pick-up line is, unless you are mindful of your personality, you won’t be able to make a nice first impression on your crush. Well, worry not, because we are here to help you out! Here are top 5 things that a woman notices while talking to you at a house-party.

  16. Mental health is an aspect of life that can have far-reaching impacts if neglected. Unlike popular perception, anyone and everyone can be prone to mental health issues, irrespective of their social status, class, region or any demographic divide. Not surprisingly then, even high-flying entrepreneurs or those setting out to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams also prioritise their mental health, given the ups and downs they may face in their journeys. © Anirudh Damani Anirudh Damani is a fourth-generation entrepreneur and the Managing Partner at Artha Venture Fund, India's first micro-VC fund. Not only has he lived up to massive expectations set by the incredible achievements of the previous generations, but has been able to successfully build an investment portfolio of 75+ start-ups out of which, hospitality giants Oyo Rooms, and child-care start-up Babychakra are a few. He works the daily pressures of fundraising (for his funds or his start-ups), investing, blogging, mentoring founders, and leading a young team, yet he manages to prioritise his mental health. We sit down for a brief chat on how he strikes the perfect balance between productivity and mental health. What are your ways of dealing with stress? How do you keep away the stress from getting to your productivity? There is no silver bullet for dealing with stress, but, over the years, I have copied macro and micro habits from successful people around me who work well under pressure. On a micro level, I maintain a strict regimen of sleeping by 10 pm and wake up at 4 am. The early hours get utilized for activities that would otherwise get interrupted by calls, messages, or notifications, i.e., reading, researching, writing, and planning. I reserve just 30% of my work hours for internal or external meetings. All these meetings are scheduled in the afternoon, thereby keeping wide open spaces in my calendar to do productive work during the morning hours. Besides, I work out 4-5 times a week and listen to many podcasts and audiobooks that keep my mind positively focused. Oh yes, therefore, I barely watch or read the daily news. © Anirudh Damani At a macro level, I have earmarked periodic time away from work to attend workshops or executive education programs to develop or refine my skills. Besides, I have time allocated to pursue hobbies that draw a parallel to my daily job. I scuba dive, go on family vacations, attend meditational camps, travel to different countries to experience the local culture, etc. How much time do you spend daily for yourself and your mental well-being? I work exclusively off my calendar with the solid belief that it is not worth focusing on if it is not on my calendar. I invest my time based on the Pareto principle, focusing 80% of my time on 20% of my activities that I have control over, which I believe will drive 80% of my results. Therefore, you will find time blocked out in my calendar to write my daily blog, read a book, or research the startups where we have invested. Other than that, I do a Tony Robbins' morning routine that involves goal setting, affirmations, anchoring, and gratitude to give a strong start to my day. How do you manage your work-life balance? © Anirudh Damani I do not follow nor believe in the work-life balance concept, especially in my chosen field of work, i.e., venture capital. I was once told that "when you are there, be there," i.e., be in the moment and in the space where you are and focus on what you are doing. Therefore, when I am at work, I do not take personal calls, and neither do I take work calls when I am with family or friends – unless (of course) there is an emergency. By staying in the moment and giving it my maximum attention, I am doing justice to the activity and the person(s) with whom I am spending that my time. That is how I choose to maintain my work-life balance. Being born into an entrepreneurial family, what kind of pressure did you go through? Did you want to have an alternate career? If not exceeding the high levels of sustained success set by the previous generation of entrepreneurs in my family, the pressure of matching up was immense. I have forever felt that there were two yardsticks utilized to measure my achievements versus my peers. I am expected to excel; therefore, I must always do more to get noticed – like running an extra mile in the marathon. Even then, my genealogy got the praises, not me – how unfair I thought to myself! © Anirudh Damani Thankfully, my ambition to move out of my father's enormous shadow took me to the US, where no one knew me, and I kept my family history a secret. Determined to make something of myself, I decided to pursue a sales career, starting as a door to door salesperson in West Texas's desert towns. It was a tough job with 100-120-hour work weeks, negligible base salary, no benefits but high commissions. It was a job where 99% of the people recruited quit within their first 6 months. I lasted 7 years in that job. I do not take more than 10% credit for persevering as long as I did. My boss & mentor injected a work ethic and a mental toughness into me that has helped me even today. His number one rule for long term success – protect your mind. What advice do you have for budding entrepreneurs and investors of the new age? First, take your mental health seriously and develop sustainable strategies to give your mind the rest it needs. Second, if you find yourself in an unproductive mental state, you must act upon it immediately. © Anirudh Damani Third, develop a strong network around you that can support you in your ambitions. This circle is the safety net that will catch you when you fall. And yes, we all fall at some point. Fourth, develop 2-3 hobbies outside of your line of work. Entrepreneurs are a passionate lot, and it helps when a part of that passionate energy gets channelized into another field. One time, I found a solution for a work problem while in my diving gear observing a shark 100 feet below mean sea level. Fifth and final – if you need help, do not hesitate, and seek professional help immediately. View the full article
