  1. Over the years, cricket, as a sport, has witnessed batsmen dominating the proceedings, often cutting a sorry figure for the bowlers. There were concerns over the contest between bat and ball heavily shifting in favour of the batsmen who were further aided with bigger bats, field restrictions and short boundaries. To make it worse, the fans, too, cherished the slambang, hard-hitting spectacle produced by batsmen on the field. While the situation is still not ideal for the bowlers, the equation, thankfully, is not as bad as it used to be in the sport before. The modern-day bowlers are aware of their surroundings and smart enough to deceive the batsmen with cunning variations and change of pace. If the batsmen developed ramp shots, the new-age bowlers mastered the off-cutters to peg them back. The evolution of bowlers, over the years, to aid their kind seems to have a fitting example in an 18-year-old boy from Manipur who matched a unique feat - one that highlights cricket is not just a batsman's game. © Twitter Rex Rajkumar Singh, on 12th December, joined the rare list of bowlers to claim all 10 wickets in a single innings. Playing for Manipur in Cooch Behar Trophy - India's four-day tournament for U-19 cricketers, the left-arm seamer had a brilliant outing against Arunachal Pradesh as he finished the game with a staggering 10 scalps to his name. The Imphal-born teen needed just under 10 overs to run through Arunachal Pradesh's batting order in the second innings. He rattled the stumps of five batsmen, trapped a couple lbw, had two caught behind and one caught in the outfield. By the time he was done, the youngster had as many as six maidens and three hat-trick opportunities in the innings. ð¨ 9.5-6-11-10 ð¨ Incredible figures for an 18-year-old from India in an under-19 match to join a rare group of bowlers to take 10 wickets in an innings! ð â¡ï¸ https://t.co/cp0GVzXPsh pic.twitter.com/0pCbRacfhV — ICC (@ICC) December 12, 2018 Manipur had conceded a 16-run lead in the first innings, after posting 122 in the first innings in reply to Arunachal's 138 at the Rural Development Trust Stadium in Anantapur. His effort saw Arunachal bowled out for a meagre 36 which was comfortably chased down by Manipur in just 7.5 overs in their 10-wicket triumph. The scorecard at the end of the match showed Rex with 15 wickets (including his 5-33 in the first innings). For someone who made his first-class debut earlier this season, the youngster has surely turned heads with his sublime performance. His feat, 10 wickets in an innings, has only been achieved by Anil Kumble (against Pakistan) and Jim Laker (against Australia) in international cricket.
  2. Huawei launched a smartphone that has been touted as the best smartphone of the year. On a personal note, I've fallen in love with this smartphone, in fact, it's the only device this year that got me genuinely excited. It looks sexy, has an insane camera and does more things than any other flagship smartphone out there. The wide-angle lens on the triple camera setup is simply mind-blowing, while it can charge super fast in under an hour. Its processor rivals Apple's A12 Bionic Chipset and delivers an exceptional gaming experience. We called it a near-perfect smartphone in our review too. Here are five detailed reasons as to why I love the Huawei Mate 20 Pro: 1. Superb Camera © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Mate 20 Pro has one of the best smartphone cameras we've used all year and also gives the Pixel 3 a run for its money. It is outfitted with Leica's 40MP RGB camera, 20MP wide-angle camera and an 8MP telephoto camera. This translates to capturing more details with a wider field of view, making it perfect for landscape shots. You can capture an entire valley as we did during the course of our review. The Mate 20 Pro could also manage to take a beautiful portrait shot which you can have a look at below. What is this camera!! #HuaweiMate20pro pic.twitter.com/5JX7q195GM — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) December 4, 2018 We've got purple skies here, the #HuaweiMate20pro did an incredible job capturing it. pic.twitter.com/xO8XsgUpYI — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) December 4, 2018 In the middle of nowhere. pic.twitter.com/IDD0DhR78X — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) December 3, 2018 2. It Has A Massive Battery The Huawei Mate 20 Pro has a mammoth of a 4200mAh battery. That's more than any other flagship device out there. It lasted at least 19 hours on a single charge during the course of our review and this included heavy gaming, voice calls, video consumption and hours of listening to music over Bluetooth. What makes it extra special is the 40W charger included in the box. We were able to charge the phone to 70% in 37 minutes and got fully charged in almost an hour. We even used the device to wirelessly charge the iPhone XS Max using reverse cate and still had enough juice left to use the phone. 3. The Fastest In-Display Sensor © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Even though you won't end up using this feature thanks to the 3D IR face-scanning system on board, it's still a useful feature. I often used the in-display fingering scanner at a nightclub when it's too dark for the 3D IR face-scanning system to work. It's also the fastest in-display fingerprint scanner we've ever used which makes it easier to use. 4. The Powerful Kirin 980 Processor © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The new chipset by Huawei packs some serious punch when it comes to performance. It beat Snapdragon 845 processor with much ease when comparing the benchmark scores. In terms of performance, it is one of the fastest Android smartphones we've used this year and sometimes beats the OnePlus 6T as well. The chipset has been coupled with 6GB of RAM which is more than enough for Huawei's platform. Gaming on the smartphone was a delight and gave us the extra power we needed to get that chicken dinner. 5. 3D Face Scanning System © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Huawei has also included a 3D Face unlock feature that essentially works as it does on the iPhone XS. It projects IR dots onto your face to recognise every single facial feature and works extremely well even in low light conditions. In fact, it is the fastest 3D Face Scanning System that you don't even realise the device has already scanned your face. It doesn't even give you an opportunity to use the in-display fingerprint sensor. It has a false match rate below one in a million making it one of the most secure phones on the planet. Huawei has managed to release a smartphone that is truly near-perfect. It has the right combination of innovations, sexy design and performs like a beast. It looks beautiful and is one of the most unique looking smartphones out there. There are however a few things that can be improved upon. The fact that the headphone jack is missing made us quite disappointed as we couldn't use our own headphones. We're also not big fans of the user interface as EMUI needs more refinement. Apart from these two caveats, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is probably our favourite smartphone of 2018.
  3. Diljit Dosanjh and Badshah just appeared together on the latest episode of 'Koffee With Karan', and we can safely conclude that this has been one of the best episodes of the season. While we saw the lighthearted camaraderie between the rockstars, we also saw the savage competition between them when it came to the game rounds. © Hotstar One of the highlights of the episode was the fashion quiz, which we have never seen on KWK before. Honestly, we could tell that this episode had to do a lot with fashion as soon as Karan Johar started telling us about how he is absolutely committed to his airport looks, and that they are a big deal for him. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 7:34am PST Karan packed a suitcase full of his personal clothes (a Louis Vuitton suitcase, of course, because nothing else will do), and pulled them out one by one, while testing both of their knowledge on high fashion brands. While Badshah started all guns blazing, Diljit caught up, quickly. © Hotstar © Hotstar The competition kept getting more fierce by minute, and one could see Diljit's focus getting steadier and steadier, till he started belting out the label names with a greater dedication than KJo chooses his airport looks with. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 8:12am PST Ultimately, it was Diljit who came out victorious, without having to struggle a lot. © Hotstar While Badshah's 'wakhra swag' is definetly infectious, desi hypebeast Diljit just proved that his fashion knowledge is in an entirely different league. Kudos, Paaji!
  4. This season of 'Koffee With Karan' has already witnessed some interesting pairings like Saif and daughter Sara, and Arjun and his sister Janhvi Kapoor. Tonight's episode is yet to appear but we can safely assume that it is going to be one of the best so far! Diljit and Badshah are going to bring to us some crazy, fun scoop with Karan and the premiere has already hooked us to it. Here are a few things that the duo will be revealing for their fans: 1. Badshah's Motive Behind Changing His Name Badshah's real name is Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia and he took the stage name after being inspired by none other than King Khan himself. Also, there was a question about his name on KBC for INR 3,20,000 as well! 2. The Science Behind Karan's Airport Looks KJo will reveal that he takes his airport looks very seriously and if he is not caught on the camera, he genuinely gets upset about it. In fact, he does a proper dress rehearsal with his stylist before leaving for the airport and how he will pose. His PR crew informs the paparazzi well in advance to ensure no one misses KJo in action. The Fun-jabi boys are here to stir up a storm on the next episode of #KoffeeWithKaran! #KoffeeWithDiljit #KoffeeWithBadshah pic.twitter.com/OYjflcfK5h — Star World (@StarWorldIndia) December 2, 2018 3. Diljit's First Public Appearance The Punjabi rockstar will reveal that long before he became famous, he was asked to fill in for a singer back in his village where he took to stage in his vest and knickers and forgot the lyrics to the song. He'll also talk about how he always prayed that everyone should know who he was and he didn't care if he knew anyone. Rockstar Rapsters in the house! Watch @Diljitdosanjh and @Its_Badshah on the Koffee couch next Sunday on #KoffeeWithKaran. #KoffeeWithDiljit #KoffeeWithBadshah pic.twitter.com/9rBeGaGp3C — Star World (@StarWorldIndia) December 2, 2018 4. Badshah's Career Switch The rap god will talk about his journey from engineering to moving to make music as a career and following his passion. 5. Badshah's Love For SRK And Salman Khan When he will be asked to choose his favourite Khan, the rapper will quip that he is a huge 'Salarukh' fan, which is an amalgamation of SRK and Salman's name. He will also talk about how humble King Khan is and will recount a past experience where how there was a party going on near the vanity van where they had both invited him and added how he was surprised that the two personalities who were so famous were also extremely humble in their demeanour and SRK even served him biryani with his own hands. You don't want to miss out on tonight's episode of 'Koffee With Karan' for anything in the world!

  5. After remaining unbeaten in the tournament, the Indian women's cricket team suffered a massive heartbreak after a poor batting display saw them losing the ICC Women's World T20 semifinal against England in the Caribbean last month. Since then, the Indian women's cricket team has been subject to immense criticism. If that wasn't enough senior cricketer Mithali Raj's allegations against their coach Ramesh Powar further dented their reputation. But, while the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is yet to take any action in the case, the home fans finally have something cheer for. Despite all the negativity and controversy surrounding their team, India's T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and opening Smriti Mandhana are taking positive strides to make the nation proud. With the Women's Big Bash League (BBL) currently underway, Harmanpreet is plying her trade with Sydney Thunder and Mandhana is playing for Hobart Hurricanes. And, on 9th December, the two marauding Indian batswomen set the BBL on fire with some slambang batting displays, paving way for comfortable wins for their respective teams. First, it was Mandhana's blistering 41-ball 69 that propelled Hurricanes to a 72-run win and then, came the Harmanpreet show that was comprised of a 26-ball 56 which saw Thunder romping their way to a 28-run triumph. Twitter/@WBBL During Hurricanes' clash against Melbourne Stars, Mandhana opened the innings for her side with Erin Fazackerley. And, despite the early loss of her opening partner, the Indian left-hander went hammer and tongs at the opposition bowlers in a strokeful innings that was decorated with 13 fours. Showcasing wide array of strokes, the 22-year-old brought up her fifty in a mere 24 deliveries. What a knock it was from @HurricanesWBBL gun Smriti Mandhana! #WBBL04 #WATCHME pic.twitter.com/Ou7hfM2u9L — Rebel Women's Big Bash League (@WBBL) December 9, 2018 Mandhana's innings finally came to an end when off-spinner Erin Osborne sent her back into the pavilion in the 14th over. However, her quickfire knock allowed Hurricanes to post a formidable total of 196 runs. In reply, Stars never really got going in their run-chase as Heather Knight's three-wicket haul ensured they got bowled out for just 124 runs. If Mandhana impressed everyone with the willow, her national teammate Harmanpreet reminded everyone why she's considered one of the most feared batswoman in limited-overs cricket. Locking horns with Brisbane Heat, the Thunder brigade got a flying start with Rachel Priest (49) and Rachael Haynes (36) adding 89 runs for the first wicket. But, Haynes dismissal halted Thunder's onslaught, only momentarily. Twitter/@WBBL Coming out to bat at No. 3, Harmanpreet smashed six fours and three sixes during her knock which was played at a strike-rate of over 200. The 29-year-old raced to her fifty in a mere 23 balls as her side raced to a competitive total of 192 runs. In response, Brisbane Heat found some refuge in Grace Harris (54) and Delissa Kimmince (38) but the target proved a tad too much for Kirby Short's side which eventually bundled out for 164 runs. Not sure what's better...the shot or the kid's reaction! ðð¤·‍â#WBBL04 #WATCHME pic.twitter.com/X7vcGt9itN — Rebel Women's Big Bash League (@WBBL) December 9, 2018 While Mandhana was adjudged Player of the Match for her match-winning knock for Hurricanes, Harmanpreet claimed the same honour for her pivotal innings for Thunder. It was quite a day for the Indian cricket fans to see two of the most destructive batswomen in women's cricket producing gem of an innings in different games.
  6. Indian cricket faced a sad day earlier this week as left-handed opening batsman Gautam Gambhir announced his retirement from all formats of cricket. But he didn't just leave without making a mark on Indian cricket history, as he slammed a century in his first innings against Andhra Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy game, making this the last game of his 2-decade long cricket career. (c)Twitter Batting on a 92, Gambhir completed his fabulous century victory at the Feroz Shah Kotla grounds in Delhi, making this his 43rd century in first-class cricket and 64 across formats. The 3rd day of the tournament started with Elite group B tied 190/1 against Andhra Pradesh's 390, which soon turned to a 112, when Gambhir took his time to slowly knock off 8 runs, finishing his stay with 10 fours. The final day of the game is on Sunday, the 9th of December, which will also be his last ever game of cricket, before he walks out of the stadium with nothing but pride! (c)Twitter So sweet of @delhi_cricket to put this up for @GautamGambhir in his final game...formal presentation tomorrow @Wahcricketlive https://t.co/wYo8vrJimD pic.twitter.com/hIQuR9OgnJ — G. S. Vivek (@GSV1980) 8 December 2018 (c)Twitter People thronged the stadium to watch the ace cricketer finish up an even score of 112 before he got out to Mohammed Khan in the 67th over of the Delhi innings. The crowd went hysterical when he completed a remarkable century, something they can boast about in the future when they remember one of the best matches Gambhir played in his life, because it was his last. It's definitely safe to say that Indian cricket will never forget one of India's better player's amazing feat.
  7. One thing that the golden era of bodybuilding had nailed down was the aesthetics. The bodybuilders, though huge, were visually pleasing. They had that crazy V-taper, a particularly sought after trait, where they would have an amazing ratio of their shoulders to the waist. If you too admire the V-taper, ensure you add this exercise to your routine. However, that slowly started disappearing in the modern day bodybuilding, when it suddenly became all about size and mass monsters, who would have significantly more muscle, but that came at the cost of aesthetics. Their huge protruding bellies even became a subject of criticism of modern day bodybuilding by Arnold Schwarzenegger. But Hurray! The classic physique is back and has started gaining prominence, while also bringing back the Golden Era of bodybuilding. The V-taper is back in fashion and athletes are building their physiques to get the classic look. And there is a new Polish IFBB pro who may just have the tiniest waist in modern-day bodybuilding. Meet Dmitrii Vorotyncev He recently won his IFBB pro card and will soon hit the bigger stages and gain prominence. His physique is nothing but body V-taper goals for everyone.

  8. Over the years, Indian cricket fans have been treated to Mahendra Singh Dhoni's savage commentary from behind the stumps during their matches. We've seen and often heard, the former Indian cricketer guiding the bowlers from his position behind the wicket. And, at times, the stump-mic also caught the Jharkhand cricketer scolding the bowlers for their poor line or length. While Dhoni no longer features in the longest format, his wicket-keeping duties have been taken over by young Rishabh Pant, who has already been tipped by MSD as his successor in the Indian team. On the other hand, Pant, too, considers Dhoni as his role model and continues to learn the tools of his trade from the veteran cricketer. During the second day's play of the Adelaide Test, Pant reminded the Indian cricket fans of Dhoni with his savage jibe aimed at the struggling Australian batsmen. After CheteshwarPujara's gritty knock of 123 runs propelled India to a 250-run total in the first innings, the hosts found themselves in early trouble after losing three wickets for under 60 runs. © AP Usman Khawaja was trying to hold the fort for Australia at one end when Pant was heard sledging the Oz batsmen. In a bid to disrupt the concentration of the Australian batsman and throw him off his game, Pant was caught on the stump-mic saying: "Not everyone is Pujara here, lads". While we aren't sure whether there was a response from Khawaja or not, but some Indian cricket fans on the social media joked that Khawaja suggested that he might not be Pujara, but he's not Rohit Sharma either. "Everyone is not Pujara here, lads!" - Rishabh Pant chirps ð Good self-assessment I must say. ð¤¦ð½‍â#AusvsInd — Ananthasubramanian (@_chinmusic) 7 December 2018 Rishab Pant saying "everyone is not Pujarahere" near the stump mic. Nice little banter going on. This is what makes test cricket so special to watch.#INDvsAUS#IndiavsAustralia#TestCricket — Anas Hussain (@anas707) 7 December 2018 "Everyone is not Pujarahere" - Pant from behind the wickets! ðð Khawaja to pant ”I am not Rohit Sharma anyways." (Didn't say it though) ððð¤£ð¤£#AUSvIND#AUSvsIND#Ashwin — Ashok Jammy (@AshokJammy_) 7 December 2018 Khawaja seems to be understanding Hindi banter from Pant. #AUSvIND#AUSvsIND — Bhargava Chittajallu (@bhargavac) 7 December 2018 After being left out of India's Test squad in England, Rohit was backed by the selectors and team management to feature in their middle-order for the four-match series Down Under. However, the Mumbai batsman, once again, left everyone disappointed with the lack of maturity and temperament in his 37-run innings that eventually came to an end because of an erratic shot by the right-hander.
  9. In January 2017, M. Night Shyamalan came up with his twelfth feature film titled 'Split'. The film represented a different kind of superhero genre that Hollywood had never seen before. © Universal Pictures Unlike 'Batman', 'Superman' or 'X-Men', 'Split' was unconventional and presented a sui-generis yet contrasting case, if comparisons are to be drawn between various comic book characters. The protagonist Kevin in 'Split' is more of a superhuman rather than a superhero. © Universal Pictures Though, the concept of the existence of multiple personalities within an individual is quite known, never has it ever been explored by a mainstream film-maker to such an extent that it represents a part of a film franchise. Kevin's 23 alter egos will now be seen giving birth to mayhem in Shyamalan's 'Glass', a 2019 release. The official trailer of the film has already been released. Before we talk about 'Glass' and how with his 13th film, Shyamalan is going to redefine the modern movie trilogy, let us first understand how only he (Shyamalan) director-writer could imagine connecting three different films over a time span of 19 years. © Universal Pictures Let us take you back to the game-changing and last scene of 'Split'. Inside a restaurant, the attention of people shifts towards a TV news broadcast explaining the horrors caused by Kevin's split personality. A woman in the restaurant could be seen talking of a similar incident that took place years back in Philadelphia and is unable to recall the name of the culprit involved. The camera then shifts towards David (Bruce Willis), who tells her the man's name and utters – 'Glass'. The scene in the film happened to hit us like a lightning bolt and gave us a major hint that 'Split' and Shyamalan's 2000 film 'Unbreakable' are related. 'Unbreakable' happened to be M. Night Shyamalan's path-breaking project; the film was named as one of the top ten superhero movies of all time by the Time magazine. © Universal Pictures Starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, the movie turned out to be the first instalment in what people are now calling the 'Unbreakable' series. In the film, a man named David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis) happens to be the only survivor on a train crash. He later discovers his superhuman powers with the help of Elijah Price (played by Samuel L. Jackson) a comic art gallery owner. With the trailer of the 'Glass', one thing is for sure - The film is going to put more weight on Elijah Price's role, that remained unexplored in 'Unbreakable'. © Universal Pictures Kevin, David, and Elijah are humans with unusual superpowers, ready to close the series. So, how did M. Night Shyamalan planned these three films with a hundred twists and different plots, over a time period of 19 years? Who could have imagined that years later, Shyamalan would even remember to add James Newton Howard's dark background score (the one used in 'Unbreakable') to Kevin's last monologue in 'Split', which cuts to David's cameo? This means something – M. Night Shyamalan is a spiritual genius and a master storyteller! This also means that Shyamalan has already modernized the art of making a film trilogy. Once, he mentioned in an interview, “The idea of doing a traditional sequel doesn't inspire me. It has to be organic and has to come from the right place — otherwise, it'll smell of artificiality. But it's fascinating how much it's stuck around. I do think about it a lot.” © Universal Pictures 'Unbreakable' happened to be amongst the first few films in the superhero franchise. The film released months after the first instalment of Brian Singer's 'X-Men' hit the theatres. Shyamalan didn't mention 'Unbreakable' to be a superhero film during the film promotions and marketing. © Universal Pictures Trilogies like 'The Matrix', 'Spider-Man' and even Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' have got their own themes and styles, M. Night Shyamalan's 'Glass' might create its own benchmarks and change the narrative about the modern day trilogy.
  10. Did you know that the most magical community in the world runs on Invision Community? For close to 12 years, Invision client @Michael R has been spreading joy through the Santa Claus Network (ClausNet.com), the world’s largest community for Santa and his followers. He started building the site in November 2006 and went live in the beginning of 2007, using Invision Community as his platform of choice since the beginning. Michael also founded the James D. Rielly Foundation in honor of his grandfather – a non-profit organization that provides charitable and emotional support to military and first responder families. As a tribute to the holidays, Mike was gracious enough to be interviewed by Joel on behalf of Invision Community on how he uses Invision Community and engages with his unique community. J: This is such a wonderful community of passion. How did you get started? Back in October 2005, I attended the world-famous Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School. It was a Christmas present I received from my wife. At that time, I had already been portraying Santa for 34 years but was a bit skeptical of what I would get out of attending a “Santa School.” He’s already nailed the Santa look. At the school I got to meet Santas from all over the World! It was a wonderful experience and I am still friends with many of the folks, but what I enjoyed most of all was the camaraderie I felt with my fellow brothers and sisters in red. This was the catalyst in creating ClausNet – to recreate the same feeling of fellowship I felt at the school. J: Your membership must be very unique. ClausNet is the world's largest online community dedicated to the faithful portrayal of Santa Claus. Our membership also includes Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer Handlers, and all others who devote their time to bringing the magic of Christmas to children and adults throughout the world!

  11. Almost 19 years ago, in an age when Bollywood was still budding and songs were mainly about dancing around the bushes, Bollywood's OG Diva, Sushmita Sen came around and stole our hearts with the iconic song 'Dilbar Dilbar'. Fast forward to the present time and the 'Dilbar' version 2.0 from 'Satyameva Jayate' has now turned into an even bigger hit, with Nora Fatehi belly dancing her way into our hearts and living up to all the expectations one had from this remix version. Instagram In case you were living under a rock all this while, here's the song that has been making people go crazy on the dance floor. When we were busy grooving to this song, Nora Fatehi was preparing another big surprise for us, which was dropped on social media a few days ago. After stealing our hearts with her moves, Nora Fatehi is now making her singing debut with this Arabic version of 'Dilbar'. Don't ask us to keep calm, because we can't. The song that has already crossed 15 million on YouTube has been released by T-series, composed by Mohcine Tiza and written by Khalifa Mennani and Achraf Aarab. The song has been sung by Nora Fatehi and Fnaire. It's interesting how the hindi version gave us major Arabic vibes, and this new Arabic version is giving us Bollywood vibes, with Fnaire looking like Ranbir Kapoor from 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani'.
  12. There are tons of exercises that can be performed on a chest day. You'll find all types of variations of hitting your pectorals from various angles to get that perfectly shaped chest. But trust me, building your dream chest doesn't really have to be a rocket science by over complicating things by using unconventional training exercises and techniques. Even if you perform only a few staple moves of a chest day, but do them with good intensity, that should be enough to get things done for you. Here is the list of those 5 conventional exercises that you should do in 2019 to achieve the best looking pectorals that you always wanted. 1) Barbell Bench Press © Pixabay Okay, no surprises here. Barbell bench press will always make it to every list of chest exercise that will ever be compiled. It's like you just cannot presume that you are training chest till the time you are doing bench press on your chest day. Bench Press has been the ultimate chest builder since the Arnold Era. Bench Press helps you to build your strength as well as power. It is also one of the best exercises to build the mid pectoral section of your Chest muscles. Relatively easy to spot and easy to balance than a dumbbell press, Barbell Bench press lets you go heavy than its dumbbell counterpart. Thus, there is no reason why you should not be performing a barbell bench press on your chest day if building a good looking chest is your target. 2) Low Incline Bench Press © Stack I've seen so many people doing Incline Presses at a very high angle. When I ask them, they tell me that they are doing it to isolate their upper pecs. However, the truth is that you are actually recruiting more front delt as you go steeper in your incline bench. You should ideally perform incline bench press at a less steep angle to hit your upper pectorals appropriately. Not to mention that Incline Bench Press will help you to build your upper chest and thus give your chest a complete look by complementing those mid and lower pectorals. 3) Decline Bench Press © MyProtein With the inclusion of the decline press in your chest workout, you will be hitting your upper, mid and lower pectorals at the same time. This will help you build your pectorals in a proportion as every area of the muscle group is being given equal attention. Some of the Gyms lack a dedicated decline bench in their equipment, which can be managed by using the adjustable bench on a squat rack. 4) Incline Bench Cable Flys © YouTube After completing your multi-joint movements, you should include a few isolation moves as well to create the required stimuli for muscle growth. Cables allow continuous muscle tension along with full range of motion. Since majority of the people lack that finishing touch in their upper pecs, including Incline Cable Flys in your Chest routine will help you with a complete Upper chest builder workout. 5) High Pulley Cable Cross Over © Thinkstock This one isolates your lower pecs like no other exercise out there. People who have problem of puffy nipples or lose lower chest can actually benefit from including this exercise in their routine. If you were not doing this exercise till now, include it this year and see the change in your pectoral shape with those rounded lower pecs.
  13. Scenario 1: Dad: So, what are you doing with your life? Son: *silence* Scenario 2: Dad: Hello Beta, kaise ho? Khana ho gaya? Son: Haa, ho gya. Mai thik hu. Aap kaise hai? Dad: Mai thik hu. Accha mummy se baat karo. *conversation ends* Does this sound familiar? I bet it does. Of all the people we meet and get acquainted with, it is our father who is the first male presence in our life; our role model, our hero and someone we look up to but are eternally scared of. Indian dads and sons are a complicated lot and their relationship is even more complex. The dynamics of the relationship change dramatically; a bit like Tom and Jerry. Truth be told, we have always had a love-hate relationship with our fathers. Mothers are the fun one, they nurture you, spoil you, care for you. Fathers are the ones who are the strict ones, who reprimand you when you do something wrong. There is a time when they love you dearly, but as you start growing up, you sense a sort of detachment from them. Baba, Papa, Abba, Dad, Appa, Pitaji, Babuji, Baoji; all these words instil a sense of respect, along with a sense of fear as well. We delved into what causes this rift between these two which makes bonding a hassle: 1. Unfulfilled Aspirations: Takiya Kalam: Par tum doctor/engineer kyun nahi banna chahte? Everyone has dreams; some of them get fulfilled, others get cut down due to circumstances. Imagine a young man in his prime who couldn't achieve his heart's desire and decides that his son will carry on the baton. While it is not wrong for a father to have a dream for his son and live their dreams through their children, some fathers downright force their aspirations down their children's throats. This kind of an attitude enables animosity in the son, who goes out of his way to try to live up to the expectations and trying his best, but doesn't seem to make his father happy, eventually hating himself and his father. What we need to understand is that it is not compulsory that sons will follow their father's dreams, if one does so of their own will, it is fantastic, but having a pre-defined path already set in stone for you may not be comfortable. 2. The Inability To Show Emotion: Takiya Kalam: Thik hai. Aur accha karo! Handling emotions have never been the strong suit of men. Showing emotion is portrayed as a flaw, especially in a patriarchal society like ours. Our fathers have always been strong; no tears, no love-dovey talks, just plain tough love. A trait learnt from their fathers. Saying 'I love you', giving a hug or showing emotion is seen as non-masculine, and our society has a very deep-rooted (read misguided) sense of what constitutes masculinity. What they do not realize is that this ingrains the same behaviour in an impressionable, young mind. A son looks up to his father as the person who will show him the ways of the world and help them. So, when they do not show any affection or emotion towards them, it instils rejection and hurt in the mind of the son; leading him to have an aloof relationship, not only with his father but future relationships as well. 3. Being 'The Man': Takiya Kalam: Ladke ye nahi karte… From an early childhood, a son is taught to be the man of the house; it is implicated by the father that he needs to be the sole patriarch of the family after him. He must man up and step into his father's shoes and become the “paterfamilias”. It is an unspoken rule; a regulation that needs to be followed. For a young adolescent, it is increasingly difficult to understand the complexities of adult life, let alone have the burden of “being the man” thrust upon him. Moreover, if the son decides to follow a career in something other than so-called manly pursuits, it is the father, more time rather than less, who will always ask him to follow a career more socially acceptable for a man. Majority of Indian parents have a hard time supporting their children in endeavours the society frowns upon. 4. Toughening Up: Takiya Kalam: Ro mat! Ladke nahi rote! Whenever you fell, your dad made it a point to tell to stop crying about it and brush it aside. That is the way they had always been taught to deal with their problems; they were trying to make you tough. Crying or whining was frowned upon; it made you a ninny. 'Boys don't cry' is such an adage that makes men think that it is a sign of weakness. It's high time that we change it. Crying is not for weaklings, but our dads sue made us feel it was. 5. Worldly-Wise: Takiya Kalam: Duniya aese nahi chalti! In the process of making their sons worldly-wise, dads often employ tactics and lessons which might not be always good. The first time you were duped by the shopkeeper or had any mishap, instead of explaining it you would most probably get lectured about it. The echoing “the world doesn't function the way you want to” dialogue is mandatory. Though it may have seemed like the worst thing that time, it did shape you as an adult, but not in the best way possible. You would try to hide any mistakes you committed so that you would not get another verbal berating. Dads are just trying to make you street-smart so that you don't make the same mistakes they did. 6. Enforcing The Rules: Takiya Kalam: Bas keh diya! Monica says, rules help control the fun. Indian fathers are a step ahead: enforce rules quite heavily so that there is little fun. Rules, when too binding, constrict a person. Having too many rules instils rebellion in the child especially if physical violence is involved. The control being forced upon them makes them have even more animosity towards their dads. Slapping, beating or disparaging doesn't work, it only agitates the young child. He may not shy away to employ the same on others. It becomes a struggle for supremacy; the son wanting more freedom and the dad trying even harder to show the son the fault in his ways. Also, the legendary sass of Indian dads is unparalleled; “Lights to tumhare papa band karenge” or “Papa to ATM hi hain” which is funny to hear but does make you feel irritated. 7. Generation Gap: Takiya Kalam: Hamare zamaane me… © Pinterest The biggest bone of contention is the generation gap: there is a huge difference in the era and conditions our fathers were brought up and the time in which we are now. There are things that they might have a hard time understanding, like mobile phones or laptops for example. They might not always like the music you listen to, the games you play or the shows you see or the way you are growing up; which is fine. You might have been often treated to the iconic, “Hamare zamaane me to hum aisa karte the” or “Hamare zamaane me hum badon se zubaan nahi ladate the.” The son needs to understand that their father is just trying to be relevant; he is unsure about how his son perceives him in this new era. Instead, the son tries to belittle the father or make fun of their choices and thus increases the strain in the already fragile relationship. 8. Communication: Takiya Kalam: Lo, maa se baat karo… Psychology suggests that sons are more comfortable with their mothers instead of their fathers; it is somewhere true. Remember the discomfort you felt when a condom ad or *** scene came up while you and your father were watching television? The channel would get changed immediately or you would start faltering and stuttering while your father would put up a stoic silence. When it comes to *** or some other hard topic, Indian fathers typically shy away from talking about it. It is not limited to just ***, having a conversation with your father is rather difficult. Other than enquiring about your being or some other superficial topic, the conversation ends there. Also, the son doesn't like coming up with any topics in the fear of ending up with a life-long lecture or not having any topic to talk about because it has always been like this, you never bothered to ask about what interests him and vice versa. 9. Appreciation & Comparisons: Takiya Kalam: Sirf 98 aaye hai? 2 marks kaha gaye? Sharmaji ka beta 100 number laya! © iDiva Instead of appreciating what the son has achieved, most fathers try to focus their attention on what he needs to work on. Though it might be a good thing in the future, the want for appreciation remains unfulfilled which gives rise to a sense of anger and despair in the son. He starts thinking that he is unable to obtain his father's approval and his level of acceptance. The pedestal created by the father for his son hampers their relationship. Acting like salt to a wound, Indian fathers have a habit of comparing their sons with his contemporaries. "If Rahul got 98 why did you not get 100? Though they are just pushing you to better yourself, never appreciating your efforts makes one sad. "Making comparisons doesn't make anyone better, it just makes you doubt yourself more. Some dads unknowingly become unkind to their sons; be it comments on their appearance or their habits. This all leads to a feeling of worthlessness in the son. 10. Pride: Takiya Kalam: “Baap humesha baap hota hai” © Afran Productions/Paramount Pictures Fathers are proud beings, and justly so. They have suffered and brought you up; so, when a son does not show the proper respect to his father, it serves as an insult to their ego and pride. They are not comfortable in asking you for help, they will always see it as a step down from their role of the provider and nurturer. As a young adult, with raging hormones and the sense of insecurity, sons give their fathers a hard time by not explaining new things which they don't understand, further enraging the father. The son seeks vindication for all the hurtful things by not helping out and ending up hurting the father's pride. How Can We Rectify this? Fathers need to understand that their words have a profound impact on their sons. They need to shed the armour once in a while, to show their sons that they are fun too. They need to give the son a break; it is beneficial for both. The son needs to understand that behind that grumpy façade and rule-loving face, lies the man who wants the best for you and loves you. The ways he shows may not be always great, but it is your responsibility as the son to understand it. © Pixar Animation Studios/Walt Disney Pictures Bonding with your father is an extremely important aspect of life. He is the first man in your life, the person who will be there always, supporting and guiding you, not always in the way you want. Fathers are also human, they are bound to say things, commit mistakes. Do not hold grudges; talk with them. Listen to their stories, their words of wisdom; they have a lot to say. In retrospect, you will find that he was correct a lot of times, though you may not have felt that way at that moment. © T-series Tell him your experiences, hang out with him. Even if he is of a non-talkative sort, indulge him. Do things for him without being asked to. If you know he likes something, get it for him. He might fake annoyance, but he will be secretly delighted that you remembered. Catch a movie with him, call him more often. If you feel sorry for the way you treated him in the past, apologize, give him a hug. Explain things to him, like technology, which you know he has a hard time adapting to. Be vocal about your love, it is never too late. Try to become friends with him. Whoever said that sons and fathers can never be friends was wrong. Try to understand him and you will see that he has warmed up to you. This is the way you can build a better relationship with your father. © Abc Look at movies like 'The Pursuit of Happyness' and 'Sanju'; these movies show how fathers are not always vocal about things. They are behind-the-curtain men, who make the movie of your life work. A father's love is hidden, it isn't as demonstrative as a mother's, but it doesn't mean that both are different; you just need to unearth the layers.
  14. From the cliché saas-bahu dramas to really funny and practical shows, Indian TV series have come a long way! Gone are the days when female vamps with huge bindi were the only way to get TRPs. Now the audience wants something light, funny, and relatable. Thanks to the internet & the web series concept, we now have some really amazing shows which our generation can watch. Let's see how they're doing at IMDB as compared to other world-famous TV shows. Following are the top 5 Hindi TV series of IMDB with at least 10000 votes: 5. Sacred Games With 9.1 IMDB rating, it is standing at No. 5 among Indian TV series. This show really got us hooked, thanks to a gripping storyline and great direction. We got to see a fresh TV series concept which was wade in India. The series had some good thriller & nail-biting moments. The way it ended its first season & with the popularity it got, the show definitely deserves a second season. However, its fate is hanging due to the allegation against one of its writers. 4. TVF Pitchers With an IMDB rating of 9.2, this show came as a revolution in the Indian TV series industry. After 'Permanent Roommates' & 'Pitchers', we were blessed to have many other great series that were youth-centric. This is highly recommended if you just want to sit at home after office & have a couple of beers. 3. Yeh Meri Family With an IMDB rating of 9.7, more than 'GoT', this series is a gem! If you are a 90s kid who grew up in a middle-class family, this would be a trip back to your childhood. This series is about little struggles that we faced while growing up and how as a family we stuck together. Watch it to have a nostalgic time. 2. Flames A typical teenage romance! The burden of studies, tuitions, and that one cute girl in tuition – this series IS our past! With an IMDB rating of 9.8, this one is the second highest rated Indian series. You'll have to watch it to know why. 1. College Romance And the winner here is a typical college romance (as the name suggests). With an IMDB rating of 9.8, this one won many hearts. This is a story of friendship, love, fairy tales and reality. You can watch it to see the emotional adventures of three friends. Which one will you be finishing this weekend?

  16. Ever since its first release, the REST API built into the Invision Community software has proven to be a very powerful and well-received feature. We love seeing what our clients and modification authors are able to do with the level of integration afforded to them through this capability, and so it is only natural that we have looked to expand the functionality in our upcoming 4.4 release. Poll Support Beginning with 4.4, you will now be able to create and update polls for both topics and blog entries through the REST API. Of course, modification authors can use this new endpoint. Warn Reasons You will also now be able to manage warn reasons through the REST API. This includes fetching a list of reasons, as well as fetching an individual reason, creating warn reasons, updating existing warn reasons, and deleting warn reasons. Event Venues Event venues can now be listed and individual venues fetched through the REST API, and you can now add, update and delete event venues through the REST API. Member Notifications You can now retrieve a list of notifications for a specific member through the REST API, useful if you were to attempt to recreate the notifications menu on a third party website (for example). Warning Users The REST API will now expose the warnings a user has received through a new endpoint. Additionally, you can fetch individual warnings, issue new warnings, undo and/or delete issued warnings, and acknowledge warnings through the REST API. If you are building a site wrapper around your community, you can leverage this functionality to ensure that users are unable to post elsewhere on your site if they have unacknowledged warnings within the community (and also to provide them with a way to acknowledge those warnings right on your site). The REST API Reference Node permissions Beginning with 4.4, you will now be able to set the permissions for a node when adding or updating it through the REST API (for example, you can now adjust the permissions for a forum or a downloads category through the REST API). Many clients noticed that while they could create new nodes through the API, the nodes would be unusable until an administrator manually went in and specified the permissions, so this change can eliminate this extra step in many situations. Event filtering You will now also be able to filter the events you pull through the Calendar REST API endpoints by start and end date (e.g. so you can show events within a specific time frame, such as the current week), and you can now also specify to sort the events returned by the event start date or the event end date. Clubs And finally, for those who leverage clubs on their communities, we have built in full REST API support for clubs. You can list all clubs, return a specific club, create new clubs, update existing clubs, and delete clubs through the REST API. Further, you can list all members in a club, add a specific member to a specific club, remove a member from a club, fetch the content types available for use within a club (i.e. so you can determine which applications are installed and have club support on a given site), fetch the nodes (displayed as tabs/sections within a club) created within a club, and delete nodes from a club. Important behind the scenes steps, such as generating invoices for members requesting to join paid clubs, are all handled automatically for you when using the REST API. We believe these changes will help clients better integrate with our software and open up new possibilities with their websites. Would you like us to add any other endpoints? Let us know in the comments below!

  18. Back in 2010, when the coveted Hockey World Cup came to India for the first time, the hosts didn't have much to cheer for after the men's team finished eighth in the national capital. Eight years on, a lot has changed in Indian hockey. The men's team have a pragmatic coach in Harendra Singh and there are as many as seven players from the triumphant 2016 Junior World Cup campaign in a perfect blend of youth and experience. And, most importantly, the coveted tournament has returned to India where Odisha's capital, for just under three weeks, will be the cynosure of the hockey world. For a side that's hosting the mega event, India couldn't have begun their World Cup campaign any better. Making their intentions pretty clear early in the tournament, the Indian men's hockey team blanked a hapless South African side 5-0 in their opening encounter at the Kalinga Hockey Stadium in Bhubaneswar. © Twitter/@TheHockeyIndia With goals raining in from Simranjeet Singh (43rd and 46th minute), Lalit Upadhyay (45th minute), Akashdeep Singh (12th minute) and Mandeep Singh (10th minute), the World No. 5 side registered a comfortable win over the Proteas in their first pool game. India's fantastic start in the showpiece event drew plaudits from every corner of the country including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A fantastic start for the Indian Hockey team! Congratulations to our team for an impressive win against South Africa in their opening match at the World Cup in Odisha. Best wishes for the upcoming games. @TheHockeyIndia #HWC2018 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 29, 2018 "A fantastic start for the Indian Hockey team! Congratulations to our team for an impressive win against South Africa in their opening match at the World Cup in Odisha. Best wishes for the upcoming games," the Indian PM tweeted.

In fact, Indian hockey legend Dhanraj Pillay was also seen rallying behind Manpreet Singh-led brigade from the stands as he witnessed his country's emphatic win in the opening encounter. WHAT. A. MOMENT. Relive this epic moment from yesterday, when the legends of our 1975 World Cup winning team came forward to congratulate the team after the win! ð®ð³â¤ï¸#HWC2018 #LoveHockey #DilHockey pic.twitter.com/3y3An1nJUb — Hockey India (@TheHockeyIndia) November 29, 2018 And, then, arguably the best moment of the tournament so far, came a heartfelt gesture from the legends of country's 1975 World Cup winning team towards the current crop of Indian hockey. Right after their triumph over the Proteas, the Indian hockey veterans - who were part of the side that defeated Pakistan in the final to win the third edition of the Hockey World Cup in Malaysia - were seen congratulating Harendra Singh's men as they made their way to the locker room. Following their triumph over South Africa, India will now face a sterner test as they gear to take on World No. 3, Belgium, in their second pool match on 2nd December.
  19. Following a 1-1 draw in the rain-hit T20I series, the Indian cricket team now faces a sterner test, as they get ready to lock horns with the Australian brigade in four Tests amid testing conditions. While India look the stronger of the two sides on paper, the Aussies cannot be taken for granted despite the noticeable absence of David Warner and Steve Smith. And, that's exactly why the Indian brigade was eagerly looking forward to their warm-up game against Cricket Australia XI at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). However, incessant rains in Sydney ensured that there was no cricketing action on the first day's play. Though the addition of an extra day to the match would have surely made Team India happy, but the fact that there was no play on Day 1 left the cricketers with plenty to do.

Thus, there was no surprise to see Kohli locking horns with Team India youngsters - Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw - on PlayStation 4 (PS4). The Indian trio were seen having a gala time on the gaming console after Shaw shared their photo on his Instagram handle. The rain doesn't seem to be going away so we decided to make something of our day âï¸ðª. Gotta love a good workout with the boys. #makeeverydaycount pic.twitter.com/E94yPIcpRv — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) November 28, 2018 Earlier in the day, Kohli was also seen making the most of his downtime in the gym. The Indian captain was seen sweating it out in the gym alongside opening batsman Murali Vijay and fast bowler Ishant Sharma. "The rain doesn't seem to be going away so we decided to make something of our day. Gotta love a good workout with the boys. #makeeverydaycount", Kohli tweeted. On the other hand, Kohli is on the cusp of overtaking Sachin Tendulkar for the most number of centuries scored in Australia. With five hundreds to his name Down Under, Kohli is just one ton away from pipping the Little Master to the record. In the previous tour, Kohli had smashed four centuries and, given his recent form, he will surely be expected to breeze past Tendulkar in the upcoming Tests. The Indian cricket team will lock horns with Australia in the first Test, slated to begin from 6th December at the Adelaide Oval.
  20. Over the years, Premier League has taught us many things. But, the most important lesson is: big-spending clubs don't like to lose. And, why would they? These giants, with less patience and more money, are doing everything. They're splurging big bucks on the managers, dishing out astronomical weekly wages to the players and then, there is some business aspect that needs to be taken care of as well. For these clubs, not winning or deriving favourable results, often leads to the sacking of the manager. Sans the sacking part, everything listed above has happened at the hallowed Old Trafford. But, their fortunes haven't improved (at least not as of now). You see, big clubs can buy mega-buck players and they can rope in shrewd tacticians as managers, but money will never teach them how to play together as a team, as a unit - a problem that has plagued United this season. For a team that has won 11 Premier League titles, Manchester United currently find themselves languishing at the seventh spot (14 points below their city rivals). And, the fact that Everton, a club much smaller in size and stature than United, is trailing the Red Devils by a point in the table sums up their season so far. © Reuters The United fans are bewildered with the team's ever-frustrating slump. The players are bemused with the coach's questionable tactics. And, the coach is entangled in a cold war with the club's top brass. For United, victories seem like a far-fetched dream - one that is capable of not only enticing the fans, but, as it turns out, the manager too. The frustrating 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace over the last weekend did push Man Utd and their fans over the edge, with Jose Mourinho publicly claiming that the clash against Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League was the last chance for their star players. With their reputation and last 16 berth on the line, Mourinho's men had a point to prove at the Old Trafford. But, there was a lot of frustration before the eventual relief. Lacking creativity in the midfield, and, belief and togetherness they need to challenge for titles and trophies, United rarely looked in control of the game. After Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini wasted good chances and the hosts appeared to have run out of ideas, Mourinho and a packed Old Trafford finally had a sigh of relief when the Belgian struck in the injury time - United's 21st effort at goal. © Reuters Fellaini's goal allowed United to secure a much-needed 1-0 win and their berth for the Round of 16 stage in Europe. For those who haven't followed United this season or are unaware of their troubles, Mourinho's reaction to Fellaini's last-gasp winner should sum up what it meant for the Red Devils and the Portuguese himself. 27.11.16: Jose Mourinho sent off for kicking an innocent water bottle 27.11.18: ðpic.twitter.com/vVqN75NTdQ — Full Time DEVILS (@FullTimeDEVILS) November 28, 2018 At the touchline, Mourinho resembled Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain who famously marked the end of particularly satisfying gigs, at times, just individual songs, by reducing his guitar to splinters against the nearest amp. While the United manager didn't have a guitar to dispose of, he perfectly channelled his inner rock god as he took out his emotion on a basket of bottles. Well, who needs a guitar when you can pull off a Nirvana moment with some water bottles. There hasn't been this much disdain for a watercarrier at Old Trafford since the great Eric Cantona meltdown when he was asked for his opinion on international teammate Didier Deschamps. While Rio Ferdinand claimed that it was an attempt to grab the limelight, Mourinho couldn't disagree more. "The ones who comment on football, not a lot of them have been on the touchline. For those who speak about expressing frustration on the bench I would invite them to come and sit there as a manager," he said.

  21. Karan Johar - better known as KJo in the Hindi film industry, is a director, producer, talk show host and author, besides many other diverse roles he can pull off in one lifetime alone. Known as the director-godfather for all the star kids in B-town, KJo's movies epitomise melodrama, dhinchak music and grooves, with a touch of sentimentality that can be rather overbearing, if left unchecked. Yet, regardless of the man's skewed sense of humour and an ever-charming sense of fashion that's right out there and vibrant, Karan Johar does a mighty fine job at being his unapologetic self when it comes to wearing his heart on his sleeves and tossing his opinions around like confetti. We picked out 5 such pearls of wisdom that KJo has shared with us over the time, and you have to believe us when we say that no matter what you would like to believe otherwise, these statements, which range across the hard realities of love, life and other better things in life, will leave you agreeing with this man like never before. © MensXP We cannot have enough people telling us this, given the advent of a full-fledged “online” life that people have come to build and aspire for constantly. But even otherwise, that's something all of us can go back to remembering from time to time, instead of beating ourselves up over little things. © MensXP This is more than true, for all of us. You would be lying to yourself if you say it's otherwise. Happiness is transient, we all know it, and yet when we have it we often forget to appreciate and enjoy the moment for longer than we do. © MensXP As much as the reality might be difficult to digest, trust Karan to give it to you as it is. The world has learnt to hate and judge first, before accepting and celebrating the love that's so innate to mankind. © MensXP Well, how many of us are going to challenge this? Not many we suppose. Because this is so true, that no challenges could ever stand in its way. © MensXP Well, you have it. There isn't much we'd want to add to this piece of gem right here.
  22. "Kim Nam-joon, Kim Seok-jin, Min Yoon-gi, Jung Ho-seok, Park Ji-min, Kim Tae-hyung, Jeon Jung-kook BTS. Whooooooooooooooo!" I heard this war cry of a fan-chant the second I stepped into the lobby of INOX Nehru Place and I knew I was in for something special. I was already familiar with the fandom named ARMY, who pride themselves on being the biggest fans and fierce supporters of BTS- the world's most powerful and popular Korean boy band. Now, I am an admirer of BTS myself and am familiar with its members and their work. However, I was not prepared to witness firsthand the major impact they have on their fans. Most Indian fans of BTS are sort of prepared to deal with the possibility of their favourite 7 men in the world never setting foot in the country, which made 'Burn The Stage' even more special, as it was an opportunity to witness BTS at such close proximity via the big screen. I still remember the rush I felt while booking the tickets. My fingers moved at ninja speed, as the seats were getting sold out before my eyes in a span of less than 20 frikking minutes! 'Burn The Stage' was originally a mini-series on YouTube Red and later it was announced as a film with the same, however, with more unseen footage of the band and their behind-the-scenes candid moments. BTS fans pride themselves for the fact that the band sets itself apart from the rest because of the message they keep spreading through their music, which is- Love Yourself. And this was visible in the movie as well, as I could hear the entire hall sighing, smiling, tearing up, cheering hard and simply being happy throughout the duration of the show. “BTS teaches you so many things about yourself and 'Burn The Stage' makes you feel good about yourself because BTS is all about love and supporting each other and most importantly- loving yourself. People should definitely watch this and be inspired”, 21-year-old Yashi told me when I asked her why should ARMYs and even non-fans watch this. The concept of 'fanservice' is very common in the world of K-pop, where idols and groups communicate with fans through scripted material, which makes their followers feel more close to their stars. Which is why 'Burn The Stage' comes as a breath of fresh air, as we get to see raw footage of how the band goes about their daily lives on their breaks, and how sometimes they lose all hope on particularly low days. Basically, it is a window into their lives, minus the harsh camera lights. I could feel my connection with the band deepening as I was given an insight into what goes into their absolutely in-sync choreography, irrespective of the weather or how they are feeling physically. In the previous episodes of 'Burn The Stage' on YouTube, fans had already gotten a glimpse of Jungkook, the youngest, literally collapsing post a performance and still managing to make it back on the stage for the next number. This time, we got to see Namjoon, the leader, getting his leg up in a splint after a performance, revealing that he had been dancing the entire time with an injured limb. Honestly, this struck something in me. I mean, I've always known BTS was a hardworking lot and the proof lies in their meteoric rise over the past few years, however, it also showed me how they were ready to go above and beyond just to deliver a stellar show and not disappoint their fans, irrespective of their personal situation. Pretty sure I was not the only one feeling like this, as a particularly emotional and excited fan, Ipsa told me, “this movie was basically them taking a step closer towards us and I want to thank them for doing so.” Well, I completely agree with her, as this movie has only brought BTS closer with their fans across the world. The fans also got to see what went behind a BTS performance, which was not just the band dancing and singing on stage but being actively involved the creation of their music and choreography, while also ensuring all the other members were alright and helping out in a tough spot. The message was simple- there is a lot more to their shows than meets the eye. After over 80 minutes of a comic and emotional rollercoaster, the movie ended to the claps and cheers of the ARMYs, some who were still beaming and looking at the screen with a contented expression, while some quietly wiped their happy tears. There was not one unhappy soul in the hall, and I could feel the positivity radiating from each and every one there. Given the times we are living in, where youngsters are battling their own demons every day, from depression to academic strain, the message that BTS is sending through their music is nothing short of brilliant. Teaching their young fans to embrace positivity and confidence, while telling them to chase after their dreams without breaking under the pressures of the world, BTS, in their own novel way, is helping the youth in combating their shortcomings. Mental health, female empowerment, friendship and introspection are some of the crucial themes underlying many BTS songs, which only explains how the group collaborated with UNICEF to come forward with the 'Love Yourself' campaign, which aimed at the protection of young people from violence, both external and self-inflicted. © Twitter/LoveYourself Coming back to the movie, its message and its impact on fans, I strongly believe that 'Burn The Stage' has successfully managed to convey to their fans, that despite BTS' historic achievement, unparalleled success and ever-increasing fame, the band has not forgotten its roots, where it came from, what they went through, and most importantly, who made them who they are today- their fans.
  23. We're all indecisive at some point in time in our lives. Be it a big decision or a small one, sometimes it's alright to be indecisive, so you can get clarity through the confusion. But more often than not, being indecisive is not that great a thing if you're a constant at it. It shows to the world that you're under confident and a scatter brain and that's usually not the best impression to have upon someone. While you can take your time and ponder upon things, which are probably more impactful because they're more important to you, you shouldn't display your indecisiveness in places where it can pose as a potential misfit for you! © Pinterest By that I clearly mean when you're just getting to know a girl, the little things that you do with regard to being indecisive can really play against you and you may end up annoying the girl you're with. While indecisiveness is okay when you're making bigger life decisions it's not okay while you're with someone and have met them for the first time and here are three ways to absolutely avoid being indecisive (1) Have A Plan In Mind Usually if you're asking the girl out, it has to be a planned effort and you definitely shouldn't act like you don't know what to do or where to go. Have a plan in mind. You don't necessarily have to tell her the entire plan but can let her in on the details step by step. Or you can narrate the plan to her and if she has any inputs or changes then she can tell you straight up. But don't be a guy without a plan. That'll really annoy her. If she's asking you 'what are we doing'? and you answer 'I don't know you tell me', you're just in for a world of abandonment by her! © Pinterest (2) Don't Have Multiple Plans That's another problem if you're indecisive. You can never decide what to do so you end up making a number of plans. Which isn't a bad thing. It's always good to have options and plan B's in hand . Just don't get confused or give her too many options. if you can't decide then go with your gut or just lay out the best plans to her and she can take a pick accordingly. © Pinterest (3) Don't Change Plans If You've Made Them If you've already made plans, then don't change them last minute because that reflects badly on your ability to carry out plans. Stick to plan and if you have to have a last minute change then make sure it's comfortable for her to adjust to, so she doesn't feel pressurised in any way. © Pinterest Indecisiveness is alright to an extent. Serious life decisions do take time but if you have to bring indecisiveness into your dating life on such a basic level then it can pose problems with the girl you're getting to know because women prefer men who don't rely on them to make decisions on the first date. Either decide what the two of you have in mind together, or plan a good evening with her.
