  1. The Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd wired in-ear earphones showed up for review at a time when the 3.5mm headphone jack is becoming obsolete. Seriously, I didn't think I'd be reviewing wired in-ear earphones in 2019. But you know what? It's earphones like these that make me want to use smartphones and other audio equipment that have an audio jack. Trust me, I've been using the Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd earphones for the last couple of weeks to listen to all my music, both when I am just chilling at home and on the go, and I've been loving it. Let me tell you all about it - Design & Build Quality In terms of the looks, these look like very basic. You see, Beyerdynamic has been making audio equipment for a long time now. Their products are best known for audio quality, not much for the design aesthetics. It's one of those brands that focus on performance over looks. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer So when you look at the Beat Byrd and give it a listen, you'll quickly realize that the company's objective was to make a piece of hardware that's more functional. The earpiece housing is made out of plastic and you get silicon ear tips. There are no fancy rugged braided cables to be seen here and all you get is a cable made out of rubber. These also happen to be one of the most affordable products from the company, which explains why it doesn't look all that fancy. They're certainly not going to grab any attention like, say, the AirPods do, but the audiophiles around you will definitely appreciate your choice. Also, they're supremely comfortable. I literally had them on for multiple hours the other day without experiencing fatigue. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer And since we're talking about the build quality, I think it's a good time to point out that these earphones lack a remote or mic. So yes, you won't be able to take calls or switch/ play/ pause music. It'll obviously come as a surprise for most people, but that shouldn't really bother you if you're picking these earphones strictly for listening to music. Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd Audio Quality Before I talk about the audio quality, I'd like to point out that it's extremely important to pick the right size of ear tips for a snug fit. That's how you'll be able to enjoy the music and get the most out of this pair of earphones. In fact, that holds true for all the earphones, because if they don't fit well enough, then you're not going to experience bass. The Beat Byrd comes with a couple of ear tips inside the box, so be sure you play around with the fit before jumping into music. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer That's the first thing I did before listening to any music and boy was I surprised by the audio quality. Alright, I am not going to say that these are best sounding earphones or headphones that I've ever used. The 1More Quad Driver earphones and the Sennheiser HE 1 still take the cake for that, but the Beat Byrd is certainly one of the best wired in-ear earphones I've used in my recent memory. I started listening to my usual Spotify playlist to get an idea of how good they are. But as soon as I connected it to my Pixel 3a XL and popped them in, I was quite surprised by the audio quality. And that's when I started exploring more music, going back to my old playlist to find some classic funk and hip-hop music. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd is a pair of bass heavy earphones. If you're not into them, then these aren't for you. But one of the things that I really liked is that the bass had more depth than I had expected. The way they're tuned is extremely warm and friendly, and the bass is clearly given more supremacy. If you primarily listen to hip-hop music Tupac's 'Until the End of Time' Album. Or try listening to something like Fat Larry's 'Band - Act Like You Know', you'll love it. The Final Say You can pick up the Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd for just Rs. 2,199, which, as mentioned earlier, makes it the company's one of the most affordable products. At that price, it's really hard to criticize it. Yes, the design could have been a little better, but it's important to understand that it's not always about the design. If you like bass-heavy earphones, then you find it an absolute pleasure to use these earphones. The audio quality is simply addictive. Overall, I'll say that Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd's bass-heavy sound is something that you'll absolutely fall in love with. Even without any discounts, these are simply awesome for the price. So, just go ahead and pick one up.
  2. The Indian cricket team comprises of numerous players who share more than just a good rapport with each other. And then, there are Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul whose bromance probably overshadows the camaraderie shared between other players in the team. From hanging out together on tours to exchanging their jerseys on the field, it's needless to say that the young duo is inseparable. However, the year 2019 started on a disastrous note for the Indian stars. The two cricketers were reprimanded for their demeanour on the popular TV show 'Koffee With Karan'. There was a lot of backlash on social media that in turn led to their respective suspensions at the hands of the Indian cricket board. © Instagram/@hardikpandya93 It was arguably the lowest of lows in their respective careers. But, the two cricketers didn't let it affect their mindset as they won the fans back with spirited performances, upon their return, on the field. While Rahul looks determined in his batting approach for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Pandya, too, appears more focussed while carrying out his responsibilities for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season. Their fall from grace seems to have brought the much-needed maturity into their approach towards the game. And, with the chat show controversy behind them, both Rahul and Pandya are looking to make the most of the opportunities with positive intent - something that was highlighted in the latter's latest Instagram post. View this post on Instagram Brothers for life !!!!! No matter what !!! Love u bro @rahulkl happy birthday. Let's make it our year A post shared by Hardik Pandya (@hardikpandya93) on Apr 17, 2019 at 11:34am PDT On 18th April, Rahul turned 27. From his fans to teammates, everyone poured in heartfelt wishes for the Karnataka batsman. But, the one from Pandya clearly stood out. Taking to Instagram to wish his best mate, Pandya wrote: "Brothers for life !!!!! No matter what !!! Love u bro @rahulkl happy birthday. Let's make it our year". Both Rahul and Pandya have been included in Team India's 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). While Rahul will either provide a back-up option as an opener or might just get to play at the much-debated No. 4 slot, Pandya will add teeth to the Indian line-up with his all-around abilities.
  3. 1st April a.k.a April Fool's Day has always been the day on which all brands try to put their best foot forward and lie to us for the sake of, well, comedy. You definitely shouldn't be believing what you see or hear on April Fool's day, but it's also the day that brings out the best in the tech space. Well, 2019 was no exception, and we got to see a lot of interesting stuff from big name companies. But here are the best April Fool's Day pranks, which we wish actually real: 1. Notifications That Literally Follow! Duolingo's pesky notifications bugging you every day to take your language test can get super annoying, which is why we're sure you end up ignoring them. But this April fool's day, the company took a step further by introducing the idea of having a large green owl appear in real life and follow you around to remind you to practice your language lessons. Heck, they even come in three modes - encouraging, disappointed, or passive aggressive - and it's downright hilarious. Check it out - 2. A Smart Assistant For Gaming? Sure. Nvidia also took it a step further by announcing a GeForce RTX smart assistant called R.O.N. The company claims it can give you cool tips when you play games like Apex Legends, telling you to hide, etc. R.O.N. can also use its brains to leave comments on sites like Reddit and Twitch for you. But be careful, R.O.N. can become a serious troll. The best part, however, has got to be the device itself, which throws a really cool holograph. Check it out - 3. RGB CPU, Anyone? Newegg's new CPU for April Fool's day makes us wonder - “How much RGB is too much RGB?” Seriously, the company showcased an RGB CPU for people who just can't have enough RGB in their life. It costs a hefty $4,999.99, and it comes with a whopping 100 cores and 200 threads. Its base clock is a supposed 1.4 Petahertz and overclock, well, if you overclock it, Newegg says you “might create a small black hole inside your CPU.” It's not something that we want, because the CPU will anyway be tucked inside a cooler, but it's a hilarious idea. Check it out here - 4. Do You Like Cup Noodles? Yes, that's what HyperX and Nissin came up with. Needs no explanation we suppose? They even claim that you can detach the fork and slurp some noodles while gaming. Sounds just about right. © HyperX - Noodles 5. Like Sharing Your Music? If you don't like HyperX's idea, then how about something more practical? Like this Jabra Earbud(dy) headphones, with which you can share the music that you're listening to. It apparently comes with an ultra-light headband that can be extended “seamlessly to accommodate the perfect fit for every pair of buddies.” © Jabra 6. An App Find Your Lost LEGO Bricks? LEGO's “Find My Brick”, as the name suggests, is a parody of Apple's Find My iPhone app. It will help you find your bricks for you in a pile of miscellaneous blocks. Image how simple your life would be with such an app, and that's exactly why we think this should actually be real. The long search is finally over... ð± #FindMyBrick pic.twitter.com/3yBIPJ2OPk — LEGO (@LEGO_Group) April 1, 2019 Well, that wraps our list of April Fool's pranks. Of course, there were countless other pranks by the likes of OnePlus, Razer, Tinder, etc., but these are the ones which we truly wished existed in real life, especially the Nvidia R.O.N. and LEGO app.
  4. Alright, I know the Galaxy Note 7 jokes are a thing of past now, but I couldn't help it. Samsung's subsidiary brand has made a flower vase that also doubles up as a fire extinguisher? Seriously, how can this not remind you about the Note 7 debacle? Called 'Firevase', the vase essentially works as a fire extinguisher when you throw it at a fire. The outer chamber is filled with potassium carbonate that quickly cools and suppresses oxygen when the vase is thrown at the fire like, well, a grenade. Don't worry, it also has an inner chamber to hold water for your flowers, so it works fine both ways. According to architecture and design magazine Dezeen, only 100,000 firevases were originally produced to promote the use of home fire extinguishers in South Korea, where having at least one home fire extinguisher per home is mandatory since 2017. © firevase - YouTube But since the promotional campaign was a success and it helped increase the number of homes with an extinguisher by 8 per cent, the company decided to produce more.
  5. The worst nightmares have come to reality for Horacio Sala, the father of the 28-year-old footballer, Emiliano Sala after the Cardiff City striker's body was finally identified by the Dorset police. Shortly after the body was brought to the Portland Port, HM Coroner for Dorset declared to the public that it was recovered from amidst the plane's wreckage and was in fact that of Emiliano Sala, whose jet mysteriously vanished from the air traffic control's radar on 22nd January 2019. In what can only be considered as the final moments of Sala, the footballer got in touch with his father with a WhatsApp voicemail in which he sounded nervous and scared for his life. "If in an hour and a half you have no news from me, I don't know if they are going to send someone to look for me because they cannot find me. But you know… Dad, I am so scared," he had said. Horacio Sala had opened up to the press a couple of days after the voicemail came out when he said: “He (Emiliano) was so happy that he was going there (Cardiff), to an even bigger club… He was doing too well, he was playing so well, and then this news… There are no words to describe the feeling.” Sala was a talented young star was had just signed a major deal with an English Premier League team, Cardiff City FC and was supposed to join his new team for a practice session a day after his unfortunate disappearance took place. He was loved by fans from both his previous team, Nantes, a French Ligue 1 team and Cardiff, equally, who came out in huge numbers to show their condolences with candles, jerseys and big colourful banners. In one of the most heartbreaking moments ever since, Emiliano's sister Romina Sala shared a picture on Facebook of his dog, Nala calmly waiting by the door, for the footballer to come back home. Fans from all over the world came together to mourn over the untimely demise of the Argentinian: Emiliano Sala's last ever goal ð¼ðð¾ #RIPSala pic.twitter.com/XIL2wkprzy — SAMUEL (@SamOgun_) February 7, 2019 This very emotional video tribute to Emiliano Sala will hit you hard.

Cardiff City FC said in a statement: “We offer our most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano. He and David will forever remain in our thoughts.”
  6. In the modern era of football, no footballer has managed to match the heroics of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. In a league of their own, the two phenoms have shattered records, claimed almost every honour there is to be won in the sport and continue to enjoy the spotlight for their unmatched skills. But, while the duo has enticed fans with their exploits, there is another man who, time and again, has proved he's not far behind. Brazil's prized possession, Neymar is probably the closest any footballer has come to Ronaldo and Messi. Third highest goal-scorer for his national team (only behind Pele and Ronaldo), the 27-year-old has won over fans with his dribbling, finishing, skill, pace and ability to play with both feet. © Reuters Currently plying his trade in France, Neymar has been a vital cog in Paris Saint-Germain's setup in Ligue 1. But, the recent times have neither been kind to the Brazilian, nor his fans. The PSG forward has been prone to injuries in the last couple of years, and his latest was the second to his fifth metatarsal in the right foot. With the initial threat of being ruled out for the rest of the season, Neymar has been recuperating well with a potential UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg a likely target for his return. While his injury has restricted his movements, Neymar remains determined to mark a return as soon as possible. And, his commitment was in full display at his 27th birthday party in Paris. Staying true to the party theme, Neymar was seen sporting a red blazer and even had red crutches to go with it. But, if his attire had people talking about his fashion sense, Neymar's tearful speech and birthday wish had football fans lauding his commitment to the game. "What I wanted the most as a birthday present today is a new metatarsal. So, I could be on the field fighting and doing what I love the most, which is playing soccer," Neymar said as emotions got the better of him. During his speech, Neymar revealed that he had thought about cancelling the celebration due to his injury, but after talking with friends he decided that it would be best to share a good time with his guests. "It's been very hard to be on crutches all this time. Every athlete knows how hard that is. They are giving me all the strength possible to help me return as soon as possible," said Neymar, who also thanked his PSG teammates for their support. While the PSG forward was slammed and laughed at for his antics at the Russia World Cup, his tearful speech would surely have people respecting his commitment to football.
  7. All celebrity couples, of late, are a huge inspiration for the millennial generation who're trying to make their relationships work. Be it their fancy love affairs, or extravagant weddings, their public display of affection or their anniversary special wishes, celebs know exactly how to show off their love for one another, without a single iota of doubt. (c)Twitter We love reading about celebrity couples old and new and while we stumble upon some really adorable things that stay with us, we also take back some tips and tricks that can be applied in our own way. So, it's not just movies where we see them flashing their love, it's also though their Instagram handles and Twitter accounts and we came across the sweetest wish recently from a couple we've always been rooting for, and they're a great example of love, in today's day and age. (c)Instagram Genelia D'souza and Riteish Deshmukh are celebrating their 7th wedding anniversary on the 3rd of February. To honour the most important day of her life, Genelia shared a throwback picture of both Riteish and her from their wedding day, 7 years ago, with a heartfelt note. The essence of her beautiful thought was just so simple, it made me a bit teary eyed, upon reading it. She narrated how she never had a sense of the kind of man she would marry, but the man she ended up with was her 'bestest friend' who always stood by her through thick and thin. Here, check out Genelia's wish for Riteish: Every girl has a certain perception of how they would want their life partner to be... I Honestly Didn't.. I had this most amazing partner who was my bestest friend, who was the shoulder, I always found when I needed to cry and who made me believe that no matter how tough life is, with us being partners we would take it on,in any form, in any way... That's the man I eventually married and he never ever stopped being the reason for my smile... So I'm glad I never ever had a perception because the reality of living and breathing this wonderful man is all I ever needed to know.. I Love you @riteishd ..Here's to many more laughs together, to the zillion times we will wipe each other's tears and pick each other up when either/or feels weak or simply to life together forever and ever... Happy Anniversary â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ A post shared by Genelia Deshmukh (@geneliad) on Feb 2, 2019 at 9:25pm PST While Genelia wished her husband with full love and adoration and a beautiful throwback picture, Riteish too gave his wife some social media love on their big day and thanked her for saying 'yes' to him seven years ago! We're really gushing over here! God gives each of us a chance to find true love, but it's up to us to identify it. God graces each of us with an opportunity to be in love but it's upto us to preserve it. God blesses each of us to be loved but it's upto us to make sure we deserve it. @geneliad You are god's grace & blessing in my life... Thank You for saying 'Yes' to me 7 years ago - Happy 7th Anniversary Baiko A post shared by Riteish Deshmukh (@riteishd) on Feb 3, 2019 at 1:47am PST Isn't this wish mighty endearing? I mean, the best love to count on there is the love that comes from someone you can absolutely trust and lean on and if he or she is your best friend then there is certainly nothing like it. That was exactly the case with the two love-birds who got married back in 2012 and now they have beautifully nestled in to each other's life and are a constant inspiration for the millennial couples who're still seeking 'relationship goals'. (c)Instagram So, if you're contemplating a mate for life and think there is someone you share your ups and downs with and someone who understands you, maybe give them a thought and see what that's like. For all you know you might find the love of your life in them, just like how Genelia found hers in Riteish.
  8. While we're happy for Ranbir Kapoor when he gave us 'Sanju', the biggest hit of 2018, there are some movies he perhaps inadvertently didn't give his all too, which plummeted at the box office. Why're we telling you this? Well, because when he was giving us back-to-back flops films like 'Besharam' (2014), 'Roy' (2015), 'Tamasha' (2015) and 'Jagga Jasoos' (2017), he was actually trolled by a cop and asked to stop doing so! © Fox Star Studios Well, not literally trolled but recently the actor attended the Umang Police Show 2019 and narrated an incident when a cop asked him to stop one night and upon recognising him, gave him a lecture about his career and how he shouldn't give any more flops and instead, suggested he does a film where he plays a policeman! © Eros International Ranbir went onto stage and narrated the incident to Shah Rukh Khan who was also on stage with him and other prominent guests who were amidst the audience. The cop first stopped his car and upon recognising him, he took a picture with Ranbir, only to sit and give him some detailed career advice on how his next film should be a one where he plays a cop. © Viral Bhayani I mean I wish it was so easy to stop most Bollywood actors and and give them some unsolicited advice on some things they probably shouldn't have done! But I guess the Mumbai policeman was lucky enough to encounter one of the biggest stars in Bollywood and sit him down over some serious talk. © Instagram Watch the video of Ranbir narrating this during the Umang Police Show 2019! Video: Ranbir Kapoor, Shahrukh Khan and Manish Paul on stage. #Umang2019 #umangpoliceshow2019 #RanbirKapoor #Ranbir #ShahRukhKhan #ManishPaul #Bollywood A post shared by Ranbir Kapoor Universe (@ranbirkapooruniverse) on Jan 27, 2019 at 10:00am PST But on an endearing note, I believe it was quite sweet of the cop to suggest something like that to Ranbir, since the policeman would actually want a fine actor to emulate the role of a policeman in a film. If directors do have any good scripts or ideas for a cop-based film, they should definitely get in touch with Ranbir, as he's told the cop he'd be open to doing it, but hasn't had a chance yet. Well, here's hoping Ranbir!
  9. Ever feel like wearing clothes that featured all the savage things you've been feeling like saying out loud? We all have, at some point. The feeling associated with wearing a piece of clothing that puts people in their place, without you having to say anything out loud, is beautiful, to say the least. It might put you in trouble in social situations (and definitely at work), but it's totally worth it (you know you agree). Designers Viktor and Rolf clearly feel the same, because they just showcased an incredible collection at the Paris Fashion Week, featuring the kind of messages you always wanted to yell across the meeting room at work. Here are 12 pictures from the collection that will definitely give you some sartorial inspiration. (Some DIY graffiti T-shirts, probably?) 1. "Don't be shy, you should speak more!" © Instagram/Viktorandrolf 2. "Are you sure you wanna eat those fries?" © Instagram/Viktorandrolf 3. "Can you do me a favour?" © Instagram/Viktorandrolf 4.

  10. Instead of the Avengers assembling, this time we had a pure moment of Marvel fans assembling to make a dying man's wish come true. A 33-year-old Marvel fan from Australia named Alexander is suffering from liver cancer, mouth cancer, and the rare genetic disease Fanconi anaemia which affects the bone marrow, and he thinks he could die before the official release of the movie 'Avengers: Endgame'. Being a huge fan, he decided to try his luck and asked people to help him get an early screening of the movie with a post on Reddit. But, he also noted he's “not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story”, just a normal guy. He thought he would make it to April, but his “bone marrow is toast”. It's good to see that even with so much happening, Alexander hasn't lost his sense of humour since the Reddit thread is called “Dying Before April: My Endgame”. Obviously, anyone would do anything to catch an early screening of one of the most awaited movies, but this is a special case and all the Marvel fans united to get Marvel and Disney to take notice. The internet came together and the hashtag #Avengers4Alexander spread on Twitter. With an update on the original post, he informed everyone that even apparently Chris Hemsworth, God of Thunder himself is aware of the situation because “Australia is a small place, turns out I know a guy who knows a guy who is chums with Chris Hemsworth”. With so many well wishes coming his way, he also wrote, “I don't know what the outcome will be but this has been amazing. If it doesn't pan out don't sweat it - I'll carry your kind words with me and that's worth far more.” He also took a cheeky shot and said, “Lastly, I don't mean to be greedy but since I'm triple dying can we throw Captain Marvel into the mix?” With this request, he also shared a picture of his dog as a bribe. And then, it finally happened, Disney reached out to him and the whole thing turned into one of the those rare, beautiful internet moments where everyone works together. Sharing the exciting news, his last update on the Reddit post is - “Disney have reached out and we are discussing options. I cried when I read their email. It's everything I hoped for and I owe it to all of you.” People on Twitter are also very excited about his wish come true and have nothing but appreciation for everyone who held make it happen. A man will get his dying wish fulfilled. Thanks to the beautiful internet. 10 years back this wouldn't have been possible. This is some good stuff that we have achieved.https://t.co/xacO9U6KKc#avengers4alexander#avengersforalexander#AvengersEndGame #10yearchallenge — Anuj Godase (@dahelmetguy) January 19, 2019 Sometimes, it is.

  11. On a fairly lighter side of things (pun intended), we have some great inspirational news from the other part of the world. East African country Rwanda, has officially banned skin lightening and bleaching products and we couldn't be happier about the country's decision. The government is now sending officials around the country to enforce the ban more openly. The country is leading a campaign against skin bleaching and similar substandard cosmetics, especially products that include hydroquinone, a skin-lightening agent, in it. After all, it took an African country to stand up against some very intangible and ridiculous beauty standards that have been placed in high regard, almost all over the world. © Twitter "It is been implemented by the Ministry of Health and the Rwanda Food and Drug Authority and the Rwanda Standards Board," Simeon Kwizera, the PR and communications officer for the board told a popular publication. He also mentioned that the operations are being handled by technical people and that the police are ensuring all safety standards, while the operations are ongoing. The initiative was sparked by President Paul Kagame on social media, when he started a discussion on the need to ban skin whitening products, way back in November 2018. Well, it's a terrific move by the Rwanda government as they've realised the crucial health hazards that a chemical like hydroquinone can pose, even today. Yes, it's been given a green signal all across the globe but it's still designed to unnaturally change skin pigmentation, so it can be determined at hazardous. © Twitter While Rwanda has taken a stand towards the unethical standards of beauty, India is still lagging far behind in this sphere. The most Googled content on the internet in India still spells 'best fairness cream in India'. There's also a lot of search on 'why is India obsessed with fair skin'. A very paradoxical situation for a diverse country like ours, where 'let's scrub off that tan' is a very common thought process for most girls who go to beauty parlours. Matrimonial columns and sites still want a 'beautiful fair girl' for all the 'handsome, tall and dusky' boys out there, and most of these expectations make people, boys and girls alike, obsess with fairer skin. © Twitter We still don't understand though where this obsession comes from, but it definitely creates an imbalance that is bred amidst apathy and entitlement in our country. I mean. you need fairer skin to feel more confident and whole and if you don't possess it, you need to apply dozens of fairness creams and bleaches, with a heap load of chemicals in it, to magically transform your pigment to a lighter one. And it's not done for fun or for the sake of looking beautiful! No! It's done under immense pressure, to stand out in society and maybe get an equal opportunity somewhere! © Twitter Advertisements showcasing the need to use these creams, wherein a girl who goes for an interview, or is performing on stage doesn't do well unless she starts using a fairness cream to become more confident and voila! she's the best dancer or the best candidate, henceforth! Not only that, there's a fairness cream for men doing popularly well and is marketed in South India, endorsed by the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham and Siddarth Malhotra, and young boys are drawn to it like a moth to the flame. Although some celebrities like Abhay Deol and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have condemned the use of fairness products, we have a larger chunk of celebrities still endorsing it for even a larger audience. Thank U 4 making me realise dat I cannot b paired along wid d fair & handsome bcz I m dark & not good looking, but I never focus on that. — Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) 17 July 2017 © Twitter The fact of the matter is the awakening for a secure sense of being has to come from within and not from TV commercials, other people's standards of beauty or even your own conditioning. Even if you're conditioned into believing dark-skinned people have to try harder in the society, there's a way to break that belief system and unravel positive thoughts towards 'just and equality' in your own psyche. © Twitter We really wish the Indian Government administers a similar ban as Rwanda has, but I guess we have way bigger issues to tackle right now and it may take time to do so. But here's hoping we slowly realise the redundancy for this obsession and take a stance on equal standards of lifestyle and beauty and build progress in a unidirectional fashion, together.

  14. Some of our most fond memories in life are related to our childhood, as those were the most carefree and fun-filled days of our lives. Sure, the adult “fun” is all good, but we all know how long-lasting that can be, so let's not go there and hurt our feelings any further. View this post on Instagram Lazy Sunday A post shared by Aamir Khan (@_aamirkhan) on Sep 1, 2018 at 9:30pm PDT However, apart from all the fun and games that we lived through back in the day, there are a few very intricate aspects of our childhood that we categorically miss - the most entertaining cartoon shows and the greatest comic binges we got to enjoy as children. Fine, some of us have not let THAT kid in us die yet. © Instagram But talking of comics, one of the most popular series we laid our hands on has to be 'Asterix'! One of the most engaging comic characters, we could never have enough of Asterix with Obelix by his side, and Dogmatix keeping up his antics besides a lot more. But imagine two of the most important people in your life coming together to bring your favourite characters to life, that would be so cool and fun, to say the least. Well, Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao did exactly that for their son's pre-birthday bash - the family dressed up like the characters from 'Asterix' and boy, did they nail it or what! © Instagram With Azad dressed up as Asterix, Aamir as Obelix and Kiran as Getafix, the family was more than perfect to look at - and managed to bring back so many happy memories from our childhood. © Instagram The images were shared on Instagram by Aamir Khan, and does the party seem lit and happening! We totally love our parents, and are more than grateful for everything they have done for us and blessed us with, yet, wouldn't it be cool to have your parents dress-up as your favourite comic characters and host a themed party? Guess we are too old for that, but one can always wish. No?
  15. Arguably one of the most iconic sportspersons in the country, Mahendra Singh Dhoni continues to enjoy the limelight like no other in Indian cricket. The Jharkhand cricketer enthralled us with his finishing abilities with the willow. Then, his impeccable leadership skills allowed Team India to scale new heights. And, now, despite renouncing his captaincy, Dhoni still remains one of the vital cogs for the Indian team. Such has been Dhoni's exploits over the years that the Indian cricket fans just can't seem to get enough of the 'Captain Cool'. If his cricketing skills weren't enough, Dhoni's antics off the field, too, have been a great hit with the fans. His recent pictures from a TV promo where he was seen playing kabaddi was all over social media, once again highlighting how popular this old warhorse is in the country. RT msdfansofficial: Man with Golden Heart. Just look at the way, he is adoring his little fan. msdhoni SaakshiSRawat#MSDhoni #Dhoni #mahiway pic.twitter.com/WpByIlp0hi — DASAð©ð© (@dasa_____) November 13, 2018 If Dhoni's kabaddi skills enthralled fans, his touching gesture for a young fan proved that this man has a golden heart. In yet another viral video, the 37-year-old was seen pulling over his car and chatting with a young kid at length before shaking his hand. The former Indian skipper is just one run short of becoming the fifth Indian and 13th overall to enter the 10,000-run club in ODI cricket. But, in 2018, the right-hander has scored just 252 runs in 12 innings at a below-par average of just over 25 alongside a strike-rate of 68.10. © Reuters His dismal form with the willow was also the reason why he was axed from the T20I series against West Indies and Australia. Ever since the debut of cricket's shortest format in 2006, India have played a total of 107 T20Is and Dhoni has been part of 93 of those games. For those who may have forgotten, Dhoni was the man who led India to its first World T20 title in 2007. So even if he is not seen playing against Australia in the upcoming T20I series, Dhoni's legacy in Indian cricket is undoubtedly second to none.

If the reports are to be believed, then Bollywood might have to make another visit to Lake Como soon when Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone get married this November.

  19. The world of cricket is not new to uncanny, witty and humorous birthday wishes flying around on the social media. Virender Sehwag is arguably the one from his fraternity that reigns supreme over his compatriots when it comes to finding unique ways to wish someone on their birthday. But, on 28th August, his former opening partner Sachin Tendulkar came up with a cheeky tweet - one that will surely make Sehwag feel proud. The Master Blaster was looking to wish his former Mumbai Indians teammate Lasith Malinga on his 35th birthday when he took to social media. And, while everyone was pouring in the birthday messages for 'Slinga Malinga', Tendulkar came up with a gem of a tweet for his Sri Lankan counterpart. When it came to batting against #LasithMalinga, I always said ... baal ko nahin, ball ko dekho (don't look at the hair, look at the ball). ð Happy birthday, my friend. pic.twitter.com/OK0gYWOpLB — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 28, 2018 Taking to Twitter, Tendulkar wrote: "When it came to batting against #LasithMalinga, I always said...baal ko nahin, ball ko dekho (don't look at the hair, look at the ball). Happy birthday, my friend". Malinga, who is currently finding it hard to break into the Sri Lankan national team, has established a reputation as one of the most effective death bowlers - thanks to his unique ability to bowl toe-crushing yorkers at will. But, as much as his bowling, Malinga is also known for his unique curls that is now more of a symbol than a hairstyle. © Reuters The right-arm speedster has 301 ODI wickets at an average of 28.92 in 204 games he has played so far. In T20Is, Malinga boasts of 90 scalps in 68 matches. When it comes to the longest format, he has 101 wickets in 30 Test matches. But, despite all his heroics, Malinga is currently finding it hard to get some game time with Sri Lanka. He last played for the national team more than seven months ago in a home series against India, while Mumbai Indians' decision against retaining him ahead of the 2018 season raised questions on his future as a cricketer.
