  1. Owing his valuable contribution to Indian cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has established a fanbase that is hard to beat for any other cricketer in the country. From fans invading the pitch to shake his hand to the crowd giving him a standing ovation every time he comes out to bat, there is no bigger crowd-puller than the former Indian captain. Thus, it's quite a no-brainer to anticipate the reactions of fans when it comes to meeting or getting some personal space with the Jharkhand cricketer. But, while the world continues to celebrate his genius and fans shadow his every move, a kid refused the opportunity to get up close and personal with Dhoni. During a charity match in Mumbai recently, the 37-year-old was spotted flaunting his football skills on the field. Following the match, Dhoni - staying true to his nature - took the time to greet the large crowd that had gathered at the venue to catch a glimpse of one of India's biggest sports icons. View this post on Instagram Lil kid says no to #msdhoni ð as is not in the mood. A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Feb 19, 2019 at 3:17am PST As he made his way through the crowd, he stopped by for a kid and offered to pick him up in his arms. In a video that has since gone viral, Dhoni can be heard saying, "Aaogey?" before being turned down by the kid who began crying. While he couldn't do much with the kid, Dhoni will be looking to continue his fine form when Australia lock horns with India in two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), slated to begin from 24th February. Considering the upcoming series will be India's last international assignment before the ICC World Cup in England and Wales, Dhoni will be eager to make the opportunity count and anchor the middle-order in the build up to the ICC spectacle beginning in May.
  2. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League is almost here and Twitter is already ablaze, with fans representing all of the eight teams coming up with funnier, more creative ways of roasting their rivals. With the announcement of the IPL 2019 schedule for the first two weeks of the tournament making headlines yesterday, we learnt that the opening game would be between Royal Challengers Bangalore and the reigning champion Chennai Super Kings. ð¨ Announcement ð¨: The #VIVOIPL schedule for the first two weeks is out. The first match of the 2019 season will be played between @ChennaiIPL and @RCBTweets Details - https://t.co/wCi6dYHlXL pic.twitter.com/TaYdXNKVSx — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) February 19, 2019 It will be a contest of aggression versus experience as Indian cricket team's current captain Virat Kohli and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will square up against each other. Although there's still more than a month to go for the first IPL match to take place in previous champion's home ground in Chennai, the two franchises decided to get on with social media savagery already. As soon as the schedule came out, Royal Challengers Bangalore came up with this tweet: A spicy south Indian Derby for starters - but we prefer the sweet sambar... Our VIVO IPL 2019 begins away from Bengaluru on Day 1 ⤠#PlayBold — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) February 19, 2019 Quick on the response, the official Twitter account of the Chennai Super Kings tweeted: But sambar is always #Yellove in colour no? ð¤ðð¦ https://t.co/f5Rw9ZtpH6 — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) February 19, 2019 The Whistle Podu gang's hilarious response led to the troll-hungry fans to get in on the fun: Before i die...

What makes the victory even sweeter is the fact that the franchise was banned from the league due to match-fixing allegations and this was their year of redemption. Not so exciting for Bengaluru though as Kohli and gang were amongst the lowest ranked teams (6th in 8 teams) and did not even qualify for the playoffs.
  3. Growing up in Colorado, Missy Franklin was introduced to swimming on her mother's insistence, owing to water safety. At the age of seven, she joined the Colorado Stars travel swim team and by 12, the American was competing against girls much older than her. By the time, Franklin graduated from high school, she possessed half the Colorado High School Athletics Association's time records for high school swim. Realising her potential, Franklin's parents got her under the wing of professional swimming coaches and the young girl thrived. In 2011, she set the first world record of her career in the 200-metre backstroke category, bettering Japanese swimmer Shiho Sakai's previous best. But, her biggest test came in 2012 as she underwent the London Olympic trials. Acing the trials and becoming the first female to qualify for seven Olympic events, Franklin, at the age of just 17, lived up to her reputation by winning five medals - four golds and a bronze - at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She also became the first woman to win four golds in a single Olympics in any sport. © Reuters In her next Olympics in Rio, the American swimmer, sadly, couldn't repeat her heroics (at least not in the number of medals) as she could only win a gold medal in the 4x200m freestyle relay. But, despite that, Franklin was being looked upon as the next Michael Phelps for her capabilities in the swimming pool. But, it wasn't meant to be. At the age of 23, while people are generally beginning their careers, Franklin was forced to call time on hers. Destined for greatness, the young swimmer broke many hearts after she announced her retirement from the sport last December, owing to chronic shoulder pain. For someone who won almost everything at will at the biggest sporting spectacle in the world, Franklin's dreams of becoming the best came crashing down. While the turn of events can undoubtedly demoralise anyone, it couldn't affect Franklin's resolve. Retired at such a young age, Franklin took another shot at life through 'Hinduism'. © Reuters “I have been studying religion for a year now and it is so fascinating and eye-opening. I love learning different cultures, people and their faith,” Franklin told PTI on the sidelines of the 'Laureus World Sports Awards.' “My own religion is Christianity but two classes I have found so intriguing are Hinduism and Islam. Because those are the two religions I did not know a lot about and after reading and learning about them, I think they are beautiful,” the bubbly American said. Apart from her heroics in swimming, Franklin also comes across as a bright student who knows quite a lot about 'Hinduism'. She is fascinated by the Ramayana and Mahabharata and has also made a conscious effort to learn the unfamiliar names in the two epics. © Reuters “I think the most beautiful aspect of Hinduism is the idea of Karma and of being good to one another, doing good deeds and how that all comes back to you, how the universe works. I find their myths and tales incredible, it is also fascinating to know about their gods, reading the Mahabharata and Ramayana has been such an amazing experience for me. The family names in Mahabharata would always confuse me but I remember learning about Ram and Sita in the Ramayana. How Sita lived her life, how loyal she stayed to Rama,” she said. Smitten by her ever-growing love for 'Hinduism', Franklin is keen on visiting India - a country that has the largest Hindu population in the world. On the other hand, her stint at the University of Georgia also educated her about the history of Yoga. “Learning about the true roots of yoga and its process, how actual Yogis live their life of renunciation, it is so incredible. I have been doing Yoga recreationally for three years but after learning more about it through Hinduism, it has definitely become a more spiritual experience for me,” she revealed. “In the West, I think the spiritualism of Yoga was left out and that is a huge generalisation. But it is great learning about what Yoga is all about and how it is about that connection with the divine and creating that oneness,” she added. © Reuters At a tender age, Franklin attained stardom and then saw it all go out of the window. Her injury spelt doom for what would have surely been a fantastic swimming career. But, unlike the majority of individuals her age, the American didn't let the weaknesses bring her down. Instead, she assessed her options and focussed on things that brought her happiness and peace. Owing to her unfavourable experiences and tough choices in life so far, this youngster is a befitting example and role model for all those who seek inspiration in the darkest phases of life.
  4. 'Gully Boy' may have taken the box office by storm, but actually, it's the hearts of the audience that the movie seems to have captured. Given that it was one of 2019's most anticipated movies, Bollywood fans couldn't contain their excitement, and all the hype around the film ensured that fans were kept primed for the 'real deal' from the very beginning of the year. Now, with the film's release on Valentine's Day last week, the Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer has been topping every chart that there is, including its box office collection, which has already crossed the 70 crore mark with four days, and the audience cannot seem to get enough of its songs, characters, plot and what not. (c) Excel Entertainment However, if there is one thing in particular that people cannot stop gushing about after a viewing of 'Gully Boy', it is the tremendous effect the supporting cast of the film has on the entire experience. Movie-goers simply cannot stop praising the impact and dimension the supporting actors have lent to the film, heightening the movie-watching experience even further. Viewers have even picked their favourites amongst the leading supporting actors and have gone on to add how each of them carries the film forward on their shoulders, supported by their talent and stellar acting. 1. Siddhant Chaturvedi (c) Excel Entertainment MC Sher is so realistic a character on-screen, and the man behind the character is an equal marvel. Talented and a natural in front of the camera, Siddhant performs the role of the guru and confidante perfectly in the film. He inspires trust and admiration with his character and we love that he stands beside Ranveer like a pillar of strength, all the way. Um, Gully Boy, scratch that, Bollywood needs more of Siddhant Chaturvedi — Chavvi (@chavvim) February 18, 2019 Siddhant Chaturvedi is the next big thing in Bollywood! Stole every scene he was a part of! #gullyboy — Abhijeet Dash (@AbhijeetDash9) February 17, 2019 2. Vijay Raaz (c) Excel Entertainment The man needs no introduction, yet Raaz's new avatar in the film had us sitting on the edge of our seats the whole time. Gone was the funnyman, and here was a violent and abusive husband and father, and his constant fight against defiance almost makes you hate him, until you behold the man suppressed within the layers of a human who has long lived a handed-down life. Also worth mentioning the terrific acting skills of Vijay Raaz. Have always been a fan. Such an understated yet powerful performer. Zoya Akhtar and whoever did the casting deserves as much applause as any other department. The casting for most parts is spot on. #GullyBoy — Ranjit Nair (@ranzzit) February 18, 2019 How good was Vijay Raaz in #GullyBoy?! Absolutely loved it. From 'Kawwa biryani' to this, man has come a long way. — HK. (@HammaadKhaann) February 18, 2019 3. Amruta Subhash (c) Excel Entertainment A regular face in the Marathi film industry, Amruta nails it as Murad's mother with her feisty and loud comebacks. Initially a pawn at the hands of fate and her husband, she decides to get her own back when things get out of hand. She can be gentle and a tigress all at once and we loved how authentic she made it look on-screen. Vijay Raaz as Ranveer's father is excellent n drives the story forward.Vijay Maurya is a Fab actor n his dialogues are seamlessly stiched in the bylanes of Dharavi.Sheeba Chadha as Alia's mom is v good n Amruta Subhash as Ranveer's mom wins u over completely. #GullyBoy — Faridoon Shahryar (@iFaridoon) February 17, 2019 The supporting cast! Amruta Subhash and Vijay Raaz. Both freakishly good actors! Zoya did that! #GullyBoy — . (@grizzlyknope) January 9, 2019 4. Vijay Varma (c) Excel Entertainment What can we say about Moeen? He is probably one of those people in the film you feel hot and cold about. You can't hate him, and yet you can't love him either, but you do appreciate him for who he is and what he represents and stands for in the film. How he selflessly stands beside Murad, despite having ideological differences, is a testimony to true friendship. On second watch of #GullyBoy can I just say Vijay Varma is absolutely incredibleð¥ the jail scene was everything — N (@pakidillastani) February 16, 2019 The performances in gully boy were so good it is difficult to decide who was the best among the others. The winner was not so obviously, Vijay Varma. Insane performance. — Orgyinho (@Siddiotic) February 17, 2019 5. Srishti Shrivastava (c) Instagram Albina Albina Albina. She is the one who was dhoptoed by Sakeena in the film due to her overtures towards Murad. Her dialogues take you for a spin and you cannot help but notice the girl taking the role and making it her own in such a short period of time. OMG !!! Srishti Shrivastava is doing the character of Albina ð³ð I didn't knew it before ð She is my fav𧡠Well you deserve it girl, you are a very good performer & Proud of you ð Keep shining ð«ð«#GullyBoy — ð§Å³mi|♥ï¸| (@SumiD_tweets) February 14, 2019

His break came in the form of a web series called 'Life Sahi Hai' which was helmed by director Luv Ranjan. He even starred in a few big brand advertisements and is also trained in Parkour and martial arts.

  6. While I agree that dating is hard in today's day and age, it's also necessary as a survival tool for the young generation today. That's because it's healthy and keeps the young people balanced and on their feet constantly. While dating has become the need of the hour, it's still circled as something only 'confident' men excel at. However, that's not entirely true. While you do need confidence to manoeuvre your dating game, you also need to be complete in order to look for another person. You can face nervousness while asking a girl out but what you need to remember is that the nervousness is just a solemn cover for making sure you don't ruin the game for yourself. In simpler words- it's okay to be nervous. © Twitter So, the next time you want to approach a girl and you think you lack the confidence to ask her out on a date, just remember these 3 simple things: (1) Let Her See You As The 'Nice Guy' Why don't we end the stereotype of 'nice guys finish last' once and for all? It's a give that women nowadays seek nice guys and not the usual chunk of 'bad boys' anymore. The sensitivity to be with someone who is kind and understanding is growing steadfastly and that's the side you need to show her. If you spot her at a bar or if she's someone you already know, it's time to show her your nice side. That doesn't mean put up a charade or show her a side where she ends up friend zoning you. It just means that you need to make her see you as someone she'd have difficulty finding, in today's and age. © Zee Studios Approach her with a conversation and find something of common interest to pick up on and start talking. Maybe have a deeper meaningful conversation and actually LISTEN to what she says. Not only will you come out as a good listener but also as a sensitive bloke. Just be the nice guy every woman wishes to find today. (2) Let Her See You As The Funny Guy Yes, agreed not everyone is funny but you can try appreciating good humour. I am not saying try your best to be humorous. Humour comes naturally, yes. But you can try and make her laugh the best to your ability. Humour always shows a very kind and soft side to someone. If you can muster up the courage to narrate a few jokes or make the conversation lighter with humour, you have her right then and there. If not, you can advocate some good humour and take her for some good comedy shows around town or a movie that's funny perhaps. Whatever you do, make sure you add the element of humour to it. © Pinterest (3) Let Her See You As The Chivalrous Guy They say chivalry is dead, but it shouldn't be. Chivalry is the mark of a man. If he's chivalrous, he's got it all. Chivalry includes everything- kindness, manners, etiquettes, compassion and being a gentleman. When we were growing up we often saw our fathers or men around show utmost chivalry. Be it opening doors or holding the chair back so a woman could sit. We don't see that anymore. Yes, women are capable of opening doors or paying the dinner bill but it's an aspect that gives women the additional strength and warmth they need, if and when a man is chivalrous. So, if you do go up to her, be your chivalrous best, to a point where if she sneezes, you hand her your handkerchief! Chivalry shouldn't die and if you gradually bring it back, you'll see the dating game change in your favour. © UTV motion picture So, if you have these three things sorted then you're good to go out and ask the girl you've been doting on, out. Just remember, pretence can only take you so far. So be your natural self and try and do your best. Your nervousness will fade away and you'll understand what women really want, clearly.
  7. If you are looking to get on the ray tracing train and want to own the latest piece of hardware by Nvidia without spending a lot, the RTX 2060 is probably your only option. It's based on Nvidia's new Turing architecture and is the least expensive version from Nvidia's latest lineup. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The Founder's Edition of RTX 2060 retails in India for Rs 31,000 and is a worthy upgrade of its predecessor i.e. GTX 1060. Sure, it's a bit more expensive from the previous variant, however, you get to take advantage of the new Ray Tracing feature on a budget. It even has support for DLSS which lets the card render more realistic lighting in real-time. We used the card to test out two games that take advantage of this tech i.e. Metro Exodus and Battlefield V. In our test, the RTX 2060 easily matched the performance of equally priced GPUs with the added bonus of future-proof ray tracing support. It's the perfect choice for gamers who want to play games at 1080p resolution without shelling out a lot of money for an updated GPU. If you want to know our PC setup for the test, you can have a look at all the specs here. We substituted our RTX 2080 ti with the RTX 2060, while the rest of the setup remained the same. Specifications © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The Founders Edition 2060 is basically based on the same TU106 processor that can be found on the RTX 2070. It has a single 8-pin power connector and two fans to keep it cooled. At the back, it has two DisplayPorts, a USB-C port and HDMI 2.0 input. In terms of CUDA core count, it has the same count as the GTX 1070 i.e. 1920 but has 5 Giga Rays/s. It also has 6GB GGDR6 of VRAM which basically increases performance and reduces power consumption at the same time. It's definitely an upgrade considering the previous iteration had the older GDDR5X configuration. The RTX 2060 also has a boost clock of 1680 MHz which is at par with the GTX 1070. CUDA cores are basically the workhorses of a GPU that is responsible for handling all the heavy computing. It works alongside the VRAM to offer clear differences in FPS counts with or without ray tracing. If you want to know more about ray-tracing and DLSS, you can read all about it here. Performance © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla At the moment, there are only two games out there that supports DLSS and ray tracing i.e. Battlefield V and Metro Exodus. Regardless of game support, the RTX 2060 is a solid card when it came to 1080 performance. We ran it through some benchmarks to see how it fared in certain games: 3D Mark First Strike Test We used 3DMark, as it can simulate different types of games and is one of the more demanding benchmark tests a GPU can be put through. It also tests out the GPUs power consumption and the average temperature in gaming conditions. The RTX 2060 scores a respectable score in each department. Here's what the RTX 2060 managed to score: It was efficient when it came to cooling and managed to run at a peak temperature of 64ºC. Power consumption, on the other hand, was a tad bit higher than the 1070 but shouldn't be a major concern. RTX 2060 Firestrike Extreme Score © MensXP RTX 2060 3DMark Heat © MensXP RTX 2060 3DMark Power Consumption © MensXP Ray Tracing and DLSS Ray tracing and DLSS is the one feature that is exclusive to RTX cards and it is also the primary reason for the increase in price. Sure, there aren't many games out there that support these two features but the future looks bright thanks to numerous developers have already announced support for future games. At the moment, we could only test Metro Exodus and Battlefield V that has support for both features. When both features are turned on, the difference in graphics and lighting fidelity is noticeable. It breathes new life in Battlefield V however we would only recommend running RTX with DLSS switched on. Here are the results for both games in terms for Frames Per Second in 1080p with RTX on and Off Battlefield V (Frames Per Second) © MensXP Metro Exodus (Frames Per Second) © MensXP It's clear that RTX 2060 is capable of handling good FPS in 1080p and we could push it even higher when would turn down the RTX settings. In fact, it would boost the frame rate past 60fps easily. With DLSS turned on, we achieved the frame rates mentioned above but it noticeably looked better. The lighting was much warmer and had a better representation of shadows with DLSS. The Final Say Not everyone can afford a top-of-the-line graphics card for 4K gaming. Especially when you live in India and gamers are looking for more affordable options. For someone who wants to game 1080p and doesn't want to spend a lot on a new GPU, the RTX 2060 is your best option right now. It supports ray train and DLSS and is also future proof for Full HD gaming. It takes advantage of Nvidia's new Turing tech and costs only Rs 31,000. This is the GPU for the masses and an affordable option in 2019.
  8. Every time the Indian borders or the safety of its citizens are threatened, it is the men in green who stand in the way of trouble. Holding the fort with all their might and even putting their lives on the line to get it done. Yet there's no denying that their bravado and selflessness also makes them easy targets and puts them in harm's way, every time our foes wish to make a point (however unnecessary and futile). Jammu & Kashmir: Mortal remains of CRPF personnel who lost their lives in #PulwamaAttack yesterday, at CRPF camp in Budgam. pic.twitter.com/h4XoD5tC7o — ANI (@ANI) February 15, 2019 Yesterday's terror attack in Jammu & Kashmir's Pulwama, which is being called the biggest attack in the area since the Uri attack in 2016, is a proof of such a situation. Yesterday JeM terrorists targeted a CRPF procession in Jammu to Srinagar which comprised of over 70 vehicles and 2,547 personnel. The attack took away the life of 44 jawans and has left the country seething with anger and grief. © Twitter Targeting unsuspecting soldiers and attacking them when their defences are down is the biggest proof of cowardice that there is. Yet, even in death the jawans and their families continue to prove that they are the country's biggest pride. Even through their ultimate misery and loss, the families of the martyred jawans continue to take pride in the sacrifice their sons, husbands and brothers made for their motherland. However, it the need of the hour is to stand with the families of the martyred and share in the pain in grief. And since acknowledgement is the simplest way to start, let's begin with that.

  9. Yesterday, on February 14, the nation was painted red, not in the colour of love but with blood as nearly 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) personnel were martyred in one of the worst terrorist attacks ever in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. AP When half the nation was celebrating the day of love with their partners, there were many families who were mourning the death of their loved ones. Cheers of laughter and joy soon turned into tears and cries of the families of jawans, who were mercilessly attacked when they were travelling in a CRPF bus that was blown up using explosives. Reportedly, a suicide bomber named Adil Ahmad Dar alias 'Waqas Commando' crashed his SUV, laden with more than 350kgs of explosives, into the bus that was part of a 70-vehicle convoy on its way to Pulwama. Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for this terror attack. AP The attack has left the families devastated and the nation in shock. From prominent personalities to commoners, everyone is filled with rage and are now voicing their anger on social media. From Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, 'Uri' actor Vicky Kaushal to Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt and more, celebrities are standing strong with the families of martyred jawans as this cowardly and despicable act can't be forgotten easily. Numb beyond belief at the dastardly terror attack on #CRPF soldiers in #Pulwama. May God give peace to their souls, and strength to their grieving families. Wishing the injured a speedy recovery. We can't let this be forgotten. — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) February 14, 2019 The Pulwama attack is despicable. My heartfelt condolences to the families of the martyrs. I pray for the recovery of the injured. — Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) February 14, 2019 Absolutely shocked by the attack in #Pulwama...Hate is NEVER the answer!!!

  10. Cricket, as a game, has evolved a lot over the period of time. Starting with sticking to the basics of both bowling and batting, to playing unconventional shots and differentiating the bowling speeds and styles, cricket is on a constant path of evolution. It is quite a sight indeed to witness players like David Warner and Kevin Pietersen, who can bat both right and left-handed. And to support that, a recent example could be of Warner, who is a conventional left-handed batsman, but batted right-handed for a few balls while playing Chris Gayle in the Bangladesh Premier League. © BCCI But now it looks like the switching part is not just restricted to batting. The bowling sensation of Vidarbha, Akshay Karnewar, showed his exemplary skills in the Irani trophy match, where he surprised both Umpire Nandan and the batsman, Ishan Kishan when he informed the umpire to bowl right handed off-spin. Already bagging the wicket of Shreyas Iyer by his conventional left-arm off-spin, Karnewar decided to welcome Kishan with a surprise by bowling a right-handed off-spin. However, he didn't stick to this for long and resumed bowling right-handed as both Kishan and Hanuma Vihari were unaffected by the change. Turns out this was not the first time the Satara lad had done something like this. Right from his junior cricket days, he has turned heads with his ability to bowl both left-arm spin and right-arm off-spin. Once, he even surprised 'The Hitman' Rohit Sharma, when both of them played for Indian Oil. Sharma even called Karnewar to the Indian team's net practice many years ago, where he managed to stun Sachin Tendulkar. © BCCI It all started in Pandharkawda in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district, where the 26-year-old was born to a bus driver. Karnewar initially started to bowl off-spin, but his coach Balu Naoghare suggested he give left-arm spin a try as well. “I was a right-arm off-spinner but used to throw with my left hand. One day, my coach asked if I could bowl left-arm spin. Initially, I struggled but after two years I became a left-arm spinner,” he recalls. Karnewar went on to represent Vidarbha as a left-arm spinner. Calling this skill his secret weapon, the ambidextrous bowler said that he uses this skill only when his team requires it the most. “I have bowled before too but this was probably the first time it came on television. Last year, I bowled during the one-dayers (Vijay Hazare Trophy) and got wickets from off-spin. Today, since Ishan Kishan is a left-hander and he likes to go after spinners, my captain Faiz Fazal said I should try off-spin. So I tried. When Hanuma Vihari came I bowled left-arm spin,” Karnewar told The Indian Express. With Karnewar starting a new trend, let's hope many other cricketers also show up with the ability to bowl from both hands.
  11. Arguably one of the greatest athletes of all time, Usain Bolt will always be remembered for his astronomical achievements in the world of athletics. The Jamaican sprinter won multiple Olympic gold medals in London, Beijing and Rio to etch his name in the history books and create a legacy that is unlikely to be overhauled anytime soon. But, post his retirement, while we might never see the legendary sprinter in action, there appears to be a new sprint king in town who is now being hailed as the next Bolt. Rudolph 'Blaze' Ingram is 1.5 seconds closer to following in the footsteps of Bolt as the fastest man on earth and he's only seven years old. The youngster had sent shockwaves across the globe after completing a 100-meter race in a mere 14.59 seconds last August. But, as per a new clip shared on social media, the seven-year-old seems to have taken his sprints to a new level. View this post on Instagram 2019 Track Season Starting Off Amazing 60 Meter Dash 8.69 â¡ï¸â¡ï¸ 100 Meter Dash 13.48 Record Breaking â¡ï¸â¡ï¸#sctop10 A post shared by Blaze The Great (@blaze_813) on Feb 9, 2019 at 5:38pm PST In the clip posted on the Florida boy's Instagram page, the youngster can be seen completing the 100-meter race in 13.48 seconds, including a 60-meter dash in just 8.69 seconds. Bolt recorded the fastest human speed (on foot) during his 9.58-second sprint in Berlin in 2009 when he moved at a rapid rate of 44.72 km/h, covering the 20-meter distance between 60m and 80m in 1.61 seconds. While it's not clear at what speeds exactly Ingram darted across the track in his recent sprint as he donned blue and orange Nike sneakers and a kit featuring the flame of a fire (befitting to his nickname 'Blaze'), the seven-year-old undeniably outdid his peers.

In one of the pictures uploaded on his official Instagram page, the youngster can be seen sporting a serious look on his face as he got set in position for one of the sprints. But, it was the caption, "My Father Told Me (@ftf_kool) That You Win Mentally Before You Win Physically I'm #1 Before The Race Start," that highlights his unperturbed attitude.

The young gun has also shared the moments on Instagram when he left his older competitors behind on the track. But, that's not all. Apart from leaving his rivals (across different age groups) red-faced on the track, the Florida boy is also a social media influencer, fitness model and three-time Amateur Athletic Union winner with Tampa Ravens. And, if you thought, this kid is all about extracurricular activities, then check out his February report card.

It shows Ingram claiming A grades for Science, Introduction to Computers, Music and Physical Education, plus B grades for Language Arts, Social Studies and Art at Cahoon Elementary School in Tampa. While majority of the seven-year-old's we know don't have any clue about their life goals and aspirations, but this kid, on the back of his astronomical capabilities - both in sports and academics, is destined for greatness.
  12. It's 2019! The year of the pig and to sheer coincidence, it's also the year of Lok Sabha elections in India, as every party, every candidate is burning the midnight oil in order to end up on top. A majority of our politicians have been travelling all over the country in order to boost their chances of winning. Speaking of which, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his entourage reached Vrindavan to serve food to underprivileged school children. The reason for this visit was to mark the three billionth meal offered by the Akshaya Patra Foundation. A Bengaluru-based non-profit organisation - Akshaya Patra Foundation, has worked with the government to provide mid-day meals. Amidst the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi indulged in a conversation with a boy saying, ”Barah baje milna chahiye tha khaana, der se aaya Pradhan Mantri, aapka khaana late ho gaya, haina?” Before the boy could answer, a girl sitting next to him intervened and her innocent reply will crack you up. View this post on Instagram Had a good conversation with the children. They didn't mind the late lunch :) #AkshayPatra A post shared by Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) on Feb 11, 2019 at 12:40am PST Well, what can we say? Children are indeed the epitome of honesty!
  13. Let's talk about sports and grooming going hand in hand for a second. Sports is an intense field and if you engage with it, it leaves you all sweaty and messed up. However, some men know how to clean up well even on the field and even after a long and tiresome match they still look on point. So here is list of Indian sports men that really know their grooming men. 1. Ishant Sharma © Getty Images While Ishant Sharma might have been punished for having long hair in school, he's really turned it around as an adult. His shoulder length mane adds a certain character to his personality. Imagine Ishant Sharma without this hair! Well, we can't either. 2. Virat Kohli © Getty Images Not that Virat Kohli didn't look great before his days with Anushka Sharma, but we feel since she has stepped into his life, he's really understood the importance of grooming, maintaining the perfect hairstyle and a beard style that looks like a million bucks on him. 3. Hardik Pandya © Getty Images Now, we know that he's received a lot of flak recently for his controversial 'Koffee With Karan' comments, however the guy does clean up well. We can't really question that, can we? 4. Sunil Chhetri © Getty Images Apart from being the striker/winger and captains for both the Indian Super League side Bengaluru FC and the Indian national football team, Sunil Chhetri also sports a stunning haircut. 5. Sandesh Jhingan © Getty Images Sandesh Jhingan is the defender for Kerala Blasters FC of the Indian Super League and the Indian football team. He is a good example of showing that even messy hair can look really good if you're comfortable in your skin. 6. K.L.Rahul © MensXP K.L Rahul is another cricketer we wish we got grooming lessons from. His look is very cleverly put together, so it looks effortless and clean.

  17. Winning a title is not easy. It surely takes a lot to outwit the rivals and eventually rise to the top before claiming the top honours. But, then comes the hard part - defending the title. The history of successful title defences in the Premier League highlights how tough it is for a club to defend their crown. But, every now and then, there comes a bunch of spirited players who combine to aid their team in the elusive title defence, making them a cut above the rest. That was the story of Vidarbha cricket team in the Ranji Trophy this season. Having won their first-ever Ranji Trophy title in the 2017-18 season, Vidarbha, unlike some of the best sides in the tournament, embarked on what turned out to be a commendable campaign this season. The Faiz Fazal-led side faced a stern test when they booked a date with Saurashtra in the tournament's final. But, staying true to their character, the defending champions edged-past Saurashtra to secure a 78-run win and, in the process, claimed their second Ranji Trophy title. © Twitter Every title defence needs heroes, and the man who stepped up for Vidarbha was undoubtedly Aditya Sarwate whose sensational figures of 11-157 and a 49-run knock in the second innings ensured Saurashtra suffered their third heartbreak in the final in the last seven Ranji Trophy seasons. Bowled out for 312 runs in the first innings, Vidarbha were aided by their spin-bowling duo of Sarwate and Akshay Wakhare. While Sarwate clinched a five-for at the expense of 98 runs, Wakhare, too, contributed towards his team's cause with figures of 4-80. As the two spinners spun a web around the opposition batsmen, Saurashtra were eventually bundled out for 307 runs in the first innings. Taking a slender five-run lead, Vidarbha ran into all sorts of trouble in the second innings. Riding on the heroics of Dharmendrasinh Jadeja (6-96), the Saurashtra bowling unit did their side a huge favour by bowling their opponents out for just 200 runs. Saurashtra would've fancied their chances after being given a 206-run target, but Sarwate had other plans. Congrats Vidarbha on retaining the Ranji Trophy. One win may be construed an aberration, two in a row is sign of prowess ðð — Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) February 7, 2019 Vidarbha's left-arm spinner struck early on and sent Snell Patel packing at just 12 runs. Then, Sarwate dismissed Harvik Desai (8) before trapping big fish Cheteshwar Pujara (0) in front of the stumps to claim two scalps in one over. Later, the likes of Kamlesh Makvana, Vishvaraj Jadeja and Jaydev Unadkat also became the victims of Sarwate's spin wizardry. As Sarwate claimed six wickets in the second innings, Saurashtra were capitulated for a mere 127 runs, losing the contest and a chance to improve on their history in the finals. For a man who had never claimed a 10-wicket haul, Sarwate couldn't have claimed the feat on a better day or occasion than the Ranji Trophy final. © Twitter Apart from putting his best foot forward in the all-important final, Sarwate has been a vital cog for Vidarbha throughout their commendable season. The 29-year-old finished the tournament with a staggering 55 wickets in 11 matches, including best figures of 11-157 that came in the final. He also boasts of six fifers and a 10-wicket haul, alongside an impressive economy rate of under three runs. Well done Vidarbha! What a success story this has been...Vidarbha cricket. ðððððð#RanjiTrophy — Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) February 7, 2019 If anyone saw the final, they'd agree that the contest was pretty close with both the teams fighting their way back at several points in the match. But, in the end, it was Sarwate - the 'Player of the Match' - who spun a web around Saurashtra's batting line-up to make Vidarbha only the sixth team in history to successfully defend a Ranji Trophy title.
  18. Folklore (and Bollywood) has always taught us that the royalty is good-looking. However, as we grew up, we realized that's not essentially true, and the fact that royal blood has nothing to do with good looks. So, whenever we come across someone from the royalty who fulfills that criteria, we can't help but be transported back to our childhood, where life is like a fairy tale. Jaiveerraj Singh Gohil, the Prince of Bhavnagar, sure is one of them, and the fact that a few people know about him, makes his existence even more alluring.

  19. The world could be a cruel, cruel place for those who are not fated to be born in a socially or financially stable family. Everything they want or need, comes with a lot of difficulty and hardship. While a lot of them get lost in the mundaneness of an average Indian to make a decent living and hustle to provide food on the table for the family, there are some who strive to achieve something a lot more greater. When her father decided to get her elder sister married, Poonam Sonune, a 19-year-old Pune girl knew that her family lacked the funds to carry out a decent wedding. So, she took it upon herself to make it happen. Having run in the 2018 South Asian Junior Athletics and winning the gold medal in the 3000m race, Poonam and her loved ones had complete faith in her abilities as an elite athlete. Her school sent her to Nasik to train under veteran athlete Vijendrasingh. Initially her father, who is an agricultural farmer by profession, bore all her expenses but failed to keep up with time. Her coach, Vijendrasingh then took the responsibility of raising money for her training and nutritional requirements through the corporate-social responsibility (CSR). After countless hours of training, Sonune decided to compete in the Pune Half-Marathon in order to get enough money to help her father organise a wedding for her sister. Surprisingly, the young runner not only participated in the event but also aced it. Giving every penny of the Rs 1.25 Lakh price money to her father, Poonam was able to realise her sister's dream of getting married. In the irony of things, Poonam could not be a part of her sister's celebration as she got selected for India's national roster for the upcoming South Asian Games, to be held in Nepal in March.
  20. To say that Abhishek Bachchan isn't an actor of potent calibre, would be one of the most misjudged claims one could make. One that is expected to come from someone who isn't aware of the art and its nuances, or whose idea of “success” correlates to the amount of success AB Jr. has achieved, as compared to his father and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. That's one of the biggest follies of our generation. We are shouldering society's ruling belief that personal success must be measured in comparison to someone else's achievements and successes. This idea is flawed on so many levels, but mostly because it completely disregards the efforts and personal milestones a person clinches throughout his journey. © Colour Yellow Productions Abhishek Bachchan happens to be a victim of this stunted worldview most Indians suffer from. Because if you ask me, Abhishek brings more to his characters than the sketches put down on paper. Many of Abhishek's performances are prime examples of how one can bring their personal experiences to add depth and flavour to a character. There is a hint of gravitas in the characters that Abhishek brings to life. He is one of the few actors in the industry who you can trust to bring their personality into a character, and still make it work. His comic timing and wit need no introduction, and regardless of what we think of 'Happy New Year' as a film, there is no denying that Nandi Bhide's character was a complete star in the film and surely added to its success. © Red Chillies Entertainment More recently, Abhishek's portrayal of Robbie in 'Manmarziyan' as the soft-spoken family guy, only went on to show how he has evolved as a performer, yet the film also fails to completely utilise his potential as an actor in the film. Which brings us to 5 of Abhishek's most standout performances of all time that makes us wish we could have more directors bring out the best of AB Jr. once more in front of the camera: 1. Yuva This film earned Abhishek his first Filmfare Award and was undoubtedly Abhishek's most memorable performance. The angst and fierce drive inherent in the character of Lallan Singh made for a treat to behold and kept us glued to our screens. © Madras Talkies 2. Bunty Aur Babli Abhishek made his mark in the industry with his performance in this film, and even caught people's attention for his striking comic timing in the film. The crime-comedy brought out a different side to the actor that no one could disregard. 3. Sarkar Who can forget Abhishek as Shankar Nagre, a role that earned Abhishek another Filmfare Award for the best supporting role? His manipulative moves and honest rendition of the character put him in the limelight once more. © Madras Talkies 4. Guru This film and Abhishek's performance in the film needs no introduction. Inspired by Dhirubhai Ambani's life, the film earned him a lot of well-deserved critical acclaim. 5. Dhoom Trilogy Abhishek as ACP Jai Dixit has added a lot to the series, no matter how quick people are to set aside his role in the films. No Dhoom film would be as good without ACP Dixit in it.
  21. PM Narendra Modi recently visited Jammu and Kashmir and there's obviously nothing wrong with that, I mean we all know how much he loves travelling. #Wanderlust But, his visit isn't being questioned, what he was doing there at one point is confusing everyone. PM Shri @narendramodi takes boat ride to inspect Dal lake in Srinagar. #NaMoInJK pic.twitter.com/YkW4ogtCOR — BJP (@BJP4India) February 3, 2019 The video is from when he took a boat ride on the Dal Lake, and it looks like he's waving at a lot of people but there's no one. What going on? Yes, PM Modi is waving, that's pretty normal, but who is he waving at? That's the biggest question. There's literally no one around. Is it just for the cameras? What is happening? The nation wants to know! Yes blame the cameraman, sure. This camera person has done the Hon PM a huge disservice by not showing all the people furiously waving back because there is no way the PM would be waving at an empty lake. https://t.co/YJoEfX8DJ3 — Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 4, 2019 Is it?

  22. (The quotations for this story was taken from an interview originally conducted by Ravi Gupta for MensXP Hindi.) Love - /lÊv/ - Noun. An intense feeling of deep affection. Love - /lÊv/ - Verb. Feel deep affection or sexual love for (someone). Those are the standard definitions of love that one is likely to find in any given dictionary picked off the shelf. Some will say that for the most part, love oscillates between two parts of speech, either written between pages and spelled out in black ink, or to be found between the warm and ruffled sheets that say it all. Yet, every now and then we stumble across those who hold a very different definition of love. One which is expressed through abstractions, such as how their lover's smile makes their heart skip a beat, or how the silent support and company of the beloved feels like the greatest prophesy of love. © Vaibhav & Parag Love often shows up uninvited, takes away our breath and is such an invigorating feeling, we end up craving for the next wave to hit us, much before the high from first one fades. It's maddening and heartening all at once, much like the brewing emotion that ebbs and flows within our cardiac valves, almost threatening to spill over and drown us with its depth of feeling. The bottomline being, there is no set definition of love. Each one of us experiences it differently, in different forms, in varying situations and with equally different kinds of people. But that is not to say that any of those forms of love are not worth celebrating. Much like the ardent love that Vaibhav and Parag share between them. © Vaibhav & Parag 32-year-old Vaibhav Jain was born and brought up in Delhi, before he moved to the US to pursue his masters, upon completing his BDS degree. Indian society's intolerance and lack of sympathy towards the LGBTQ community forced Vaibhav to hide his true identity and later leave his home state in search of a safe haven. It was back in 2012 when Vaibhav saw his future-husband Parag for the first time during a Pride Parade. There was an instant feeling of recognition, and Vaibhav sought to further it. He looked up Parag on Facebook and sent him a private message. As the two gradually began to get to know each other, Vaibhav asked Parag out for dinner at a Thai restaurant. © Vaibhav & Parag Though the date turned out to be a mess since the food at the restaurant was a disaster, Vaibhav tells us that regardless of the unappetising food, their first date remains truly memorable. The two spent hours talking, and when they finally left, it started raining. The pitter-patter of the rain inspired Vaibhav to serenade to his favourite singer Mohammed Rafi's song 'tere mere sapne'. This is how they ended up spending 6 hours together on their first date. Now while their innocent love slowly began to bloom, the distance that separated them began to seem like a bother. Hence, one day Parag suggested that Vaibhav moved-in with him. This was even before either of them had confessed their love for each other, which made Vaibhav a little hesitant to make the move. But as their shared understanding began to grow stronger, Vaibhav slowly started the process of moving in with Parag. © Vaibhav & Parag As time passed, both Vaibhav and Parag began to fall deeper in love, and eventually Parag confessed his feelings to Vaibhav. A moment, as Vaibhav tells us, “that still makes me blush.” However, something continued to eat him even as Parag's love filled his heart with warmth. The discrimination that Vaibhav faced in India over the years left deep-rooted psychological impact which prevented him from openly welcoming the affection that Parag showered on him. Once this diagnosis was reached, Parag stood strong beside Vaibhav and helped him believe and put his trust on their relationship and what they shared together. © Vaibhav & Parag Now, while Parag had already come out to his parents 15 years ago, he wished for Vaibhav to come out to his family as soon as possible. As the desire for a future together began to grow stronger, Parag's insistence became more urgent. Vaibhav was also convinced that he wanted to go public with his relationship, and began looking for the right opportunity to break the news to his parents. Finally when he landed an internship with WHO in Switzerland, Vaibhav asked his parents to join him for the trip. It was on the last night before Vaibhav's parents left for India, that he decided to come out to his parents. “I don't like girls, and I don't wish to marry one either. I am gay and I have known it since I was 14-15 years old,” Vaibhav told his parents. While both his parents were shocked by the news, they offered Vaibhav their unconditional love and support. His mother even remarked that she must have failed somehow as a parent – not because he was gay, but because he didn't feel safe telling her his truth for so long. Vaibhav confessed that, “though my parents couldn't sleep peacefully that night, but I have been sleeping peacefully ever since that night.” © Vaibhav & Parag Cut to 2019 and the couple have already been legally married for over a year. However, when it comes to desi, big fat Indian weddings Vaibhav shares that, “ I believe in the traditional Indian wedding, and that's why Parag and I plan to get married is the desi style on 29th and 30th March this year. Since both of us are Jain we plan to follow the traditional wedding rituals and follow it up with a reception back in India.” Getting married isn't their only major plan for the near future. Vaibhav shares that, “I love kids. And though people are quick to suggest adoption for gay couples, we have decided to opt for surrogacy. That is not to say that I am opposed to the idea of adoption, but it's just that we want to try the other possibility. And as for the struggles of parenthood, I think Parag and I are ready for all of it.” © Vaibhav & Parag Talking about the possibility of officially creating a life with his husband in the future, Vaibhav has only one message to share with everyone. “Every human being is precious, and no one should be discriminated against. Everybody deserves to live and the society needs to understand it. If my 85-year-old grandmother can accept our love and bless us, then why can't others do the same? Even if the society fails to understand us, I would still urge others like me to come out and face their truth. If I can do it, why can't you?”
  23. We do not live in the same city and yet manage to spend more time together than couples living in the same zip code. We end up flying almost every weekend to see each other, either in Mumbai or Delhi. All other times, we meet directly at the holiday destination (not in the same city to travel together for a holiday, we just land up there separately). In our two-and-a-half-year-old relationship, we would have taken a combined total of at least 150 flights, visited 8 countries and many cities in India just to spend time with each other- Gaurang (c)Instagram While every couple strives the hardest to make a relationship work, there are a few who go an extra mile to make sure their relationship is nothing short of extraordinary. And the couples who usually do that have a tough situation at hand and they certainly work towards the odds, to perceive it as nothing less than spectacular. For us, every relationship does circumvent its way around to make it spectacular. If you've made it long enough and are true to each other, then why shouldn't you brag about it? I mean that, in the most non-cynical banter ever. Today, relationships are moulded out of uncertainty, where a 'right swipe' takes you far away from basic reality of a relationship which should ideally be working on strong will and a lot of determination. And if there are couples making it work through the thick and thin of everything, without using distractions as a tool to temporarily sabotage an equation, then they're definitely worth a mention. (c)Instagram Meet one such couple, who has realised the importance of sticking together, even though they have miles between them, in a generation that thinks working extra-hard on a dynamic is rather redundant and superfluous, with frivolity ruling the roost, of every heart, today. Here's introducing Gaurang and Saachi, who defy that theory fairly often. The two met through a common friend, back in 2011, when they were still in college and when Blackberry phones were the endgame for a lot of couples back then. The first interaction was, of course, exchanging BBM pins. We actually lived through the "BBM age" in 2011. We used to chat for 7-8 hours every day till it got to a point where we risked finger tendonitis. - Gaurang (c)Instagram Favourite Memory So Far Both of them have been bitten by the travel bug and have made their favourite memories together from their indulgences in different places. The first time Saachi proclaimed her feelings for Gaurang was in Goa and when they were spending time together. Right when the sun came out, she looked at Gaurang and asked him if he wanted to go out. Little did Gaurang realise she's asking him out and in his innocent spree, he agreed to go outside to soak up some sun and enjoy some breakfast. (c)Instagram From thereon, their memories were filtered to either ticket cancellations and re-bookings or checking out a new place together or even making travel plans for their next birthdays, Valentine's Day and various relationships milestones. Took me to Prague for my birthday. Flew in to Mumbai to surprise me on Valentine's day, Jodhpur for our 2 years and now we're planning to bring in our birthdays at Scotland and USA respectively, this year, because we need new memories!- Saachi (c)Instagram This Is How You Tackle Distance Both the 'wanderers' have been together for a long while now and have opted through various things in life to stay together. By that I mean, Saachi and Gaurang realised that being physically together in one place, even though their relationship doesn't allow it, is a bare essential and they've done everything in their power to overcome the distance they go through, everyday. Couples living away from each other, making each day count, and not letting suppositions rule their relationship with the obscure distance they have to deal with, are an inspiration in today's day and age and we're glad we can count on them flawlessly to teach us how to strive towards keeping something so fragile, alive. (c)Instagram Gaurang and Saachi going through months of not seeing each other is not just commendable, it's the strongest aspect that builds the fundamentals of their relationship. From dealing with insecurities to earning each other's trust over time, while away from each other, is the strongest reinforcement of belief and love. And believe it or not, their long-distance relationship works from one suitcase to another. They both love travelling and have made that an eventuality in keeping their love alive. (c)Instagram When they decided to date, it was on a trip to Goa they'd taken with a few friends and now, every time they establish a new milestone in their relationship, it's overlooking a new city skyline, amidst local food and an adequate yet brand new start to a very old equation. We decided to date each other on a trip with friends to Goa. Our first date was on the beach drinking wine - Saachi Since then, instead of visiting each other in the city they both reside, they book tickets and explore new cities and spend time together. It helps them regain the moments they've lost in time and travel through different places, making indispensible memories their unbreakable timeline for the future. It was Gaurang's idea initially to make their life a lot more convenient since Saachi had a job that made her shift her base from time to time. The couple first travelled to Jodhpur to spend some quality time together and then made it mandatory to pick a city of their choice to meet at, whenever time allowed them to. Honestly, if long distance relationships worked this way, distance would just be a meagre resolve, as couples would pay more heed to planning the next trip and figuring out an active itinerary rather than brood over how far they are from one another. (c)Instagram She's a consultant and travels every week, so I end up living that lifestyle vicariously. We've met each other at Prague, Portugal, Budapest, Finland, Thailand, Vietnam, USA and Dubai , as far as I can remember - Gaurang Long distance relationships should be listed under survivor tools, because you're diligently doing anything to keep them intact, in order to survive a relationship crash. It's tough for sure but there are many things you learn with this association such as patience, faith, and trust. Gaurang and Saachi have been stuck with a conundrum of following through with long distance and they've been doing a mighty good job of it so far, by travelling away their woes. (c)Instagram There is never a decree of 'heartbreak' between these two, when they leave each other's company to pursue their lives in different cities. Because they know they've tackled the severest relationship downfall and have made it alive, with a lot of sparkle and fun, intact. They have mastered the art of making holiday plans, seeing each other whenever the need arises and saving money diligently to do so successfully, until the day they're married! Honestly, I have been blessed with more than I deserve. - Gaurang (c)Instagram At the end of the day, relationships that are fundamentally stable, can withstand any test they're put through, even the test of time. To end this beautiful story, I can't stress enough on how some couples have to part temporarily on a good note and carry forth their association in different places. I personally admire couples who have immense faith in each other to work through the distance and make every day a reason to point at the map and say 'Let's make this work and have fun while doing so'.
  24. There will come a point in your life when you will start spotting white strands of hair in your beard. For some people, it will be sooner rather than later. Whenever that starts to happen, you have two options before you: you can either resort to hiding these strands with temporary methods to make your mane and beard seem a perfect black, or embrace nature's calling and wear salt and pepper on your sleeve with pride. Either of the two options are great. But hey, if the damage is far worse and temporary dyes are not helping hide the damage, here is some inspiration that proves that these beards are definitely hot! 1. Salman Khan © Instagram The salt and pepper beard version of Salman Khan is as likeable as the one without the beard. 2. MS Dhoni © Instagram It is clearly visible that MS Dhoni looks better with a beard than without. 3. Suniel Shetty © Instagram Suniel Shetty is ageing in reverse. There are absolutely no doubts about that. 4. Milind Soman © Instagram Milind Soman is more attractive as an older man than he was in his twenties and a part of the credits goes to his beard. 5. Anil Kapoor © Instagram Anil Kapoor is setting a great example for his offsprings on how to look like a thirty-year-old in his sixties. 6. Akshay Kumar © Instagram Akshay Kumar's alternate personality comes alive once he grows out his beard. Take a look. 7. Arjun Rampal © Instagram Arjun Rampal is yet another example of a man who can maintain a stellar salt and pepper beard.
  25. Dale Steyn, with his scary eyes, throbbing veins and an intimidating chainshaw celebration, has established his reputation as one of the most feared fast bowlers in the modern era of cricket. On the back of extreme pace, troublesome swing and pin-point accuracy, Steyn has managed to get the better of some of the best in the business. But, the South African speedster's injury concerns saw him missing out on majority of the games in recent times. Now, fully fit and raring to go at the batsmen, Steyn is back to doing what he does best - cutting a sorry figure for his opponents. During the first three Tests against Pakistan, Steyn was amongst the leading wicket-takers, claiming 12 scalps at an average of 29. While he was rested for the remaining two Tests and the first two ODIs, Steyn's fiery attitude and ability to silence his critics, once again, came to the fore. This time, off the field. Okay that's enough from me. Watching this Test from the comfort of my couch, did I just become a armchair critic? #WhoAmI — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) January 31, 2019 Enjoying his time away from the game, Steyn took to Twitter and updated his fans about his whereabouts. "Okay that's enough from me. Watching this Test from the comfort of my couch, did I just become a armchair critic?" he tweeted. You sure need some comfort after that spanking by Babar Azam in the Test series. — BernaLeo (@MQunClub91011) January 31, 2019 While many showered praise on the right-arm seamer, reminding him of his feats, one cricket fan tried to take a dig at the South African with a cheeky tweet. "You sure need some comfort after that spanking by Babar Azam in the Test series," the fan tweeted. Yes, 3-0 in the test series is a proper spanking. #burn — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) January 31, 2019 In response, Steyn minced no words in giving a befitting reply: "Yes, 3-0 in the test series is a proper spanking #burn". The 35-year-old was talking about the 3-0 whitewash that the Proteas had handed to the touring Pakistani brigade in the Test series that was concluded last month.
