Things are going to change

This year you must stay, you deserve it.

When you think things go wrong

When you think things go wrong

There is always someone who will give you a hand.

Where are you going tonight?

Where are you going tonight?

Some day we'll go back there, our secret place.

Do you remember those moments?

Do you remember those moments?

This is going to get sweet!

I really feel younger.

I really feel younger.

Maybe I'll give it a little taste.

Oh pretty mama, you're the best!

Oh pretty mama, you're the best!

I do not think I'll ever forget it, thanks.

  1. Ahead of the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, there was a lot of speculation over the abilities of Indian athletes to come good against more-proven nations like China and Japan. While India couldn't really match the heroics of the two countries, who eventually topped the medals tally, the athletes did produce some majestic performances to ensure their country recorded its best-ever performance at the Games with 69 medals- 15 gold, 24 silver and 30 bronze. It's needless to say that the Indian athletes exceeded expectations and made their country proud. From cash rewards to never-ending praises, the Indian sportspersons undeniably deserved it all. But, 21 days after the Games came to an end, India's miracle workers were left embarrassed in a ceremony where they were supposed to be felicitated. The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) became the butt of all jokes during their felicitation ceremony that was organised to award the cash rewards to the Asian Games athletes on 23rd September. In an event that was supposed to celebrate the genius of Indian athletes, the IOA got multiple names wrong on the cheques that were to be handed to the athletes. They even missed out on mentioning the name of bronze-medal winning wrestler Divya Kakran. At the felicitation of our #AsianGames2018 champions by IOA. Compliments to IOA for felicitating Asian Games medalists for the first time in its history. Was my pleasure to have another opportunity to meet our #AsianGames medalists. pic.twitter.com/pe6hsrt7RN — Rajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) September 23, 2018 Around 15 medallists including compound archers Jyothi Surekha Vennam and Abhishek Verma were given just bouquets, as the IOA somehow managed to misprint their names on the cheques meant as rewards for their efforts at this year's Asian Games. The IOA awarded Rs 3 lakh, Rs 2 lakh and Rs 1 lakh respectively for the gold, silver and bronze medal winners in the team events. The individual medallists received Rs 5 lakh, Rs 3 lakh and Rs 2 lakh respectively. But, in the end, it didn't even matter as they couldn't even get their names right. "I would like to apologise in advance for our mistake. The names of around 14-15 players have been printed incorrectly so we will give them a bouquet. But don't worry, you will get your cash prizes. I didn't want to give cheques with misspelt names," IOA President Narinder Batra was quoted as saying by PTI. © Twitter/@Ra_THORe Surprisingly, the major goof-up was only realised after Kakran's parents raised the issue with the IOA President after the ceremony had ended. Realising their mistake, Batra called Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore to announce the prize for poor Kakran. Several players were missing from the felicitation ceremony including gold medallists - javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra and tennis players Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan, wrestlers Bajrang Punia and Vinesh Phogat along with badminton medallists PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal. But, it seems that they were probably lucky to evade such an embarrassment. In a country like India, where cricket and cricketers continue to hog the limelight, other sports and sportspersons have to make amends by playing the second fiddle. They work just as hard and their achievements are just as important as the popular cricketers. While they still have to wait to come out of the shadows of the cricketers, these athletes should not be robbed off the praise and rewards they truly deserve.
  2. Who says love shouldn't be documented? Of course, it needs documentation and assurance every step of the way. After all, the right way to celebrate love is through writing your own story about it and nothing is more inspirational than a documentary on people being in love. It's a real time account of someone's struggle with an emotion that is so convoluted, that 'documenting' it in the right way is the only way to make others understand the true essence of it! (c)Jennifer Brea So, we have selected 5 of the best documentaries on 'love' you can watch with your significant other, to inspire each other to work hard on your relationship and never let the love fade away. If you do love someone or want to be with someone, these movies will definitely light up the way for you! (1) Crazy Love (2007) (c)Dan Klores 'Crazy Love' denotes the idea of mad and obsessive love and how it can completely break someone down. Not your typical run of the mill true life romantic watch but it does give you one stubborn reality check. The movie is based on the lives of Burt Pugach, a very successful New York based lawyer, who was smitten by the 20 year old Linda Riss, back in 1957. He woos her relentlessly until something terrible happens between them and he goes to prison for it! (c)Dan Klores The movie tells the beginning of a crazy relationship between the two lovers and doesn't really take us to the end because, lets' face it, a perfect love story doesn't really have an end! The film is romantic in a very messed up sort of way, where the depiction of actual 'crazy love' is elemental and the obsession between the two people is what gives it an edge. I am not going to reveal more, but definitely watch it to put Shah Rukh Khan from 'Darr' or Urmila Matondkar from 'Pyaar Tu Ne Kya Kiya' to shame! The soundtrack is excellent btw. Watch the trailer here (2) Meet The Patels (2014) (c)Getta V Patel Ravi V Patel The movie is directed by the Patel siblings -Geeta & Ravi and it explores the nuances of love and the idea of marriage in the Patel family, living in America. The film is an actual love triangle between love of Ravi's life and his parents and it's all caught on camera by his sister, Geeta. In what started as an innocent family vacation vide, became a hilarious account of Ravi's love life and his struggle to keep up with his immigrant family in a foreign land. Watch it for some laughs, real struggles Indian families go through in the West, while adjusting to the culture there and a lot of love, too. Watch the trailer here. (3) Autism In Love (2015) (c)Matt Fuller The movie is gripping and challenging to watch without a tear or two; so watch it with your partner to know what actually struggling in love feels like. The movie is about four adults with autism, who are in a relationship and the challenges they face to work really hard on their relationship. Dave and Lindsey, who have autism have been in a relationship with each other for almost 8 years and they decide to get married at the end of the film. The film focuses on how the disorder can jeopardise important characteristics of an intense relationship like communication and social interaction. The director has made the film as real as possible and has shown the lives of four autistic people, struggling with love, very closely. Watch the trailer here (4) Unrest (2017) (c)Jennifer Brea Will you ever stand by someone you truly love, if they fall really sick one day? Well, this documentary tells the tale of Jennifer Brea, a Harvard PhD, who was about to marry the love of her life when she was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, which is a lifelong illness that doesn't let you function as a normal human being. Jennifer brought out elements of compassion and empathy through her experiences with this illness and talked about resilience in the face of life-altering loss. She also talked about how it's important to fight something you're going through, physically and mentally, with the one person who you truly love and trust and how important their support is. Watch the trailer here (5) Love And Saucers (2017) (c)Brad Abrahams This one's one of my favourites. Do you believe in the Extra Terrestrial? Or aliens? Well, 72-year-old David Huggins surely does and he claims to have had a lifetime of encounters with some extra-terrestrial beings and one of them have been romantic in nature, with an extra-terrestrial woman! He has then documented and chronicled his affair with the beautiful alien, through numerous surreal impressionist paintings and also made a movie about it, to tell his tale! Definitely catch this one for some 'out of the world' romance! Watch the trailer here So, instead of cuing some sappy rom-coms, how about give real love a chance? Watch these documentaries with bae and have a great weekend.
  3. It doesn't matter what generation you belong to; there's a high chance that you have watched 'Friends' and you love it as well! You can impersonate Phoebe's singing skills, and ensure Monica's OCD like no one's business, right? © NBC Well, guess what, if you were thinking how people in all generations of your family love the iconic show so much, then the fact is that it actually turned a whopping 24 year old today! Yes! People on social media are having a mini nostalgic meltdown today. Oh. My. God. It's been 24 years since #Friends aired. Could I BE more thankful for this show? pic.twitter.com/lW4IB2KxZU — Samantha ð (@samantha_167) September 23, 2018 24 years ago Friends premiered for first time ever Wow! I wasn't born until 2 years after but it still is one of my all time favorite shows ever! It contains something so magical that many shows lack & changed what a tv show could really encompass #Friends I'll Be There For You pic.twitter.com/SQvU7g4Os0 — Amy (@musicalways14) September 23, 2018 I am sure you suddenly feel very old right now but in a good way. 24 years ago the world was changed for the better #friends pic.twitter.com/CyDkhWBxmz — Logan Chisholm (@lmchisholmm) September 23, 2018 WE WERE ON A BREAK! #friends My fav show aired 24 years agoð­ I mean... I'm almost that old. — Maria (@simplymarialara) September 23, 2018 24 years ago today, the world was blessed with the most iconic (and my all-time favorite) show ever & the rest, as they say, is history. @FriendsTV pic.twitter.com/U4OGfdQ5cz — Charu Misra (@charumisra) September 23, 2018 Following the lives of this group of reckless crazy group has been super fun and taught us many life lessons in friendship and love. Cheers to the show who gave rise to many more shows that tried to catch on this concept, but sucked anyway. 'Friends' will always be there for you! Okay, I'll return to my binge watch marathon now.
  4. You know why you clicked on this story, don't you? If you are not sure, then let's just say that perhaps something about this article's headline resonated with you. Or maybe you came here to confirm your notions on the subject or even to critique it. All the same, for a major percentage of you reading this, the most pressing reason would have been the four words written in quotes in the headline - which is something every other Indian guy has grown up listening to, a number of times, from a number of people. © Vinod Chopra Films Frankly, no one's to blame for this passion that plagues most of the middle-class households in the country, regardless of where you are located. This statement is a loose translation for middle-class aspirations, to climb up the social ladder based on the “pride, respect and financial independence” this career offers/ed and promises/ed. However, when we look around at our engineer friends and acquaintances, or even the job market for that matter, each of them paint a very different picture. Yet, our elders somehow always manage to overlook these realities or rather manage to “look at the brighter side of things”, as they say. © Vinod Chopra Films But we are not here to discuss the pros and cons of this career choice, rather we are here to set a premise as to why our society needs to move beyond its obsession with scientific intelligence and instead, give equal encouragement to a healthy philosophical and literary bend of mind amongst the youth. While there's no denying the fact that scientists and engineers may be one of the major building blocks of the society, it also needs to be acknowledged that civilisations would cease to exist if creative fields are to be disregarded and the expressions curbed. © Thinkstock So, when we say that parents should take a break from “humara beta toh engineer banega”, what we are also trying to say is that, it's time they stopped saying things like, “arts toh below average students lete hain”, “actor banke nautanki karoge?”, “baker matlab halwai banna chahte ho?”, yada yada. What this implies is that anybody who is more inclined towards science will somehow be more successful in life, while any other alternative choice of career cannot be trusted to stand the test of time and help build a life of comfort and abundance. © Pexels Yes, times are changing. Yes, we have come a long way and yes, it is true that lots of parents have now become more accepting of alternative career choices, but the majority of them are still not convinced. So while they continue to overlook the perpetual need and the growth prospects of the creative fields, let's consider taking a look at the facts that might convince the likes of them. It is no news that the creative fields expand people's horizon. They allow us to look beyond the obvious, dig deeper and not go by the face value of things. People in these fields like to question everything and build strong instincts by expanding their knowledge. © Pexels Moreover, every society needs people who can think clearly, accommodate multiple perspectives and rise above the differences to reach a consensus that suits them all. Creative fields encourage critical thinking and equip people to unearth the layers of meaning hidden behind an obvious looking artefact and prove their point too. Not just that, people in such fields are also more welcoming of other cultures and beliefs, because they wish to know more and take all the positive aspects of different cultures to share with the world. © Pexels A lot of poignant pieces of literature, cinema, paintings, culinary explorations and the likes have constantly opened gates for interactions and exchange of ideas across borders and even continents, stepping over language barriers and cultural differences. These are other forms of discoveries which help the society to grow and evolve into a wholesome and compassionate entity. So, perhaps it wouldn't be wrong to say it's high time the break was announced, and we witnessed more transformations like Viru Sahastrabudhhe's character underwent in '3 Idiots'. © UTV Motion Pictures This would not only save hundreds of lives burdened by societal (at times parental too) expectations and from eventually crumbling under it, but also prevent the ruthless murder of thousands of dreams, something that is so prevalent in many households in the name of job security and future prospects.
  5. Ever since Kapil Dev and his boys' triumphant run at the 1983 World Cup, cricket has managed to establish an undying fanbase in India. If the gentleman's game is considered a religion in the country, the Indian cricketers have been enjoying the status of demigods. Such has been India's obsession with cricket, that it has left other sports lurking in its shadow. While the likes of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni continue to enjoy the spotlight alongside lucrative endorsement deals, other sportspersons in the country still have to fight for their share of fanfare. These athletes are no different than the popular cricketers, they put in as much hard work as them, their achievements are equally important as theirs, yet they find themselves playing the second fiddle to the superstars of the popular game. A similar incident came to the fore recently, and once again highlighted the sorry state of Indian athletes who are struggling to get their due. © Reuters The 11-member selection panel of the Sports Ministry, on 20th September, made it official that the likes of Kohli and weightlifter Mirabai Chanu will receive the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna later in the month. Apart from Kohli and Chanu, 20 other sportspersons were also picked for the Arjuna Awards. Kohli, currently the No. 1 batsman in Test rankings, has been in prolific form in the past three years. On the other hand, Chanu made her country proud with a stupendous show at the 2017 World Championships and 2018 Commonwealth Games, where she clinched gold medals in weightlifting. Thus, it is quite understandable that these two prized athletes are on their way to receiving the country's highest sports award this year. But, going by the selection panel's performance point system, which is used to ascertain the deserving candidates, Kohli and Chanu appear to be lagging behind. The Indian cricket captain obtained 'zero' points while reigning world champion Chanu could only manage to earn 44 points in the fight for the Khel Ratna this year. But, there were other candidates like Bajrang Punia and Vinesh Phogat who both totalled 80 points owing to their recent performances. © BCCL According to the points system, a gold-medal finish allows a sportsperson to earn 80 points (if won in Olympics/Paralympics), 40 (if won in World Championships/World Cup), 30 (if won in Asian Games) and 25 (if won in Commonwealth Games). When it comes to a silver medal, an athlete is awarded 70 points (if won in Olympics/Paralympics), 30 (if won in World Championships/World Cup), 25 (if won in Asian Games) and 20 (if won in Commonwealth Games). The bronze medal makes for 55 points (Olympics/Paralympics), 20 (World Championships/World Cup), 20 (Asian Games) and 15 (Commonwealth Games). Apart from that, the selection panel can award discretionary points (up to 20) to a sportsperson over and above the points given for achievements in Olympics, World Championships, Asian Games and Commonwealth Games. After an initial list of 17 applicants, the selection panel shortlisted 11 candidates and awarded them points - Mirabai (19), Kohli (18.5), Srikanth (18), Vinesh (13), Rohan Bopanna (12), Bajrang Punia (12), Neeraj Chopra (15), Deepa Malik (12), Vikas Krishan (14), Manika Batra (13) and para-wrestler Virender Singh (12). The final tally saw Chanu with 63 (44+19) points, Punia with 92 (80+12), Vinesh with 93 (80+13), Malik with 90.4 (78.4+12), Batra with 78 (65+13) and Vikas with 66 (52+14) points. When it comes to captain Kohli, the Delhi lad had a total of 18.5 points (0+18.5). © Reuters According to TOI, the reason why Kohli's performance sheet had no points was because there is no criteria set for cricket, unlike other sports. There is no points system for cricket since it is not an Olympic sport. So, how are cricketers selected for the award, you'd ask? Well, they are selected through consensus, which further paves way for controversy. A member of the sports ministry's selection panel confessed to TOI that there was a debate over how the performance of Kohli (whose name was rejected for Khel Ratna in 2016 and 2017) should be judged since the points system has been framed, keeping in mind performances in Olympic and international tournaments. "When Kohli's name came up for discussion, it was decided to pick him through a show of hands in the absence of a points system for cricket. Eight out of 11 members supported Kohli's candidature and that's how his name was recommended," the member of the selection panel was quoted as saying by TOI. © Reuters Now, there is no doubt over Kohli's achievements in cricket over the years. On the back of hard-work and sheer dedication, he has established himself as arguably the best batsman in the sport. Under his tutelage, the Indian cricket team has managed to scale new heights. But, despite all that, the selection of Kohli and Chanu for the prestigious award reeks of controversy, especially when there were at least six other Khel Ratna aspirants who managed to get more performance points than the two sportspersons. Irked by the selection panel's dual standards, Bajrang Punia- who won CWG and Asiad gold this year - has decided to move the court on 21st September after being snubbed for the award despite getting the highest points. "I want to ask them (committee members) a simple question: 'What's the use of having a points system in place when you don't adhere to it?'" he asked while talking to TOI. "If the members want to ignore my credentials despite it being amply visible that Vinesh and I have accumulated the maximum points, then what option do I have other moving court? I have immense respect for Kohli and Mirabai. They are two champion sportspersons, but if I look at my credentials and that of Mirabai, there is no comparison. You gave her the award, give it to me as well, it's simple," Punia added. © Reuters Punia's arguments present a strong case and it's just too hard not to feel for the Indian athlete. We cannot really blame the cricketers- whose performances cannot be measured due to the obscure points system in place- for the inefficient methodology of the selection panel to shortlist a Khel Ratna recipient, but, at the same time, it shouldn't rob other sportspersons- who've toiled hard in obscurity to earn points through prolific performances at the international stage- of their share of honours. For these athletes are already making do with minimal support, fanfare and training facilities, the least the Sports Ministry can do is give them their due by acknowledging their efforts.
  6. Often compared with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Neymar has established a reputation as one of the biggest stars in the footballing world. On the back of brilliant ball control and street-smart skills, the Brazilian became a vital cog in Barcelona's front line before departing for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). But, despite his footballing prowess, Neymar has often been left red-faced. His theatrics at the FIFA World Cup in Russia earlier this year gave birth to hilarious memes that thronged social media throughout the tournament. While some slammed him for his play-acting, others just couldn't help but poke fun at the Brazilian footballer. While the World Cup might have ended, the jokes on Neymar don't seem to be ending soon. © Reuters The UEFA Champions League clash between Liverpool and PSG was expected to be an exciting contest, but it had a lot more than one expected. Twin strikes from Daniel Sturridge and James Milner gave the Reds a 2-0 lead. However, Les Parisiens came roaring back thanks to Thomas Meunier and KylianMbappe. With the match turning into a dogfight, it was Roberto Firmino who eventually netter the winner for Liverpool. ðµ Outrageous. SadioMané sends Neymar and picks up Skill of the Day ð@Mastercard#UCLpic.twitter.com/nK7jqKWmSR — UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) 18 September 2018 If the goals galore enthralled the fans, Sadio Mane's dazzling skills made Neymar look like an amateur. Receiving the ball near the right corner flag, Mane approached the backtracking Neymar, and his quick feet, clubbed with a rapid change of direction left the PSG winger going the wrong way while the Senegalese sped off closer to goal. The short video of Mane's brilliance was tweeted by the UEFA on Twitter where the Liverpool star's move was labelled as the 'Skill of the Day'. And, as soon as the video was shared, football fans across the globe took turns to poke fun at Neymar and laud the Senegalese footballer for his skill.

  7. There are some people who get trolled, even when they don't do anything. Chetan Bhagat is one of those unfortunate souls. Once again, the author of 'Half Girlfriend', 'Five Point Someone', and 'The 3 Mistakes Of My Life' became the butt of all jokes when Ola launched a campaign in collaboration with him. © Instagram If you follow Ola on Twitter, then you must have come across their latest campaign called 'Ride With Chetan'. Basically, they are giving a chance to some lucky people to travel with the author and the offer ends on September 25. Reportedly, this campaign is to promote Bhagat's latest book 'Girl In Room 105'. Let an Ola take you to your destination today and your next ride could be with me! Book your Ola today. Offer lasts till 25th September. #RideWithChetan#TheGirlInRoom105 pic.twitter.com/CnYQwmHDfz — Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) September 18, 2018 Chetan Bhagat is a renowned author, and several of his books have been turned into movies that have been a commercial success. So, sharing a car with him sounds like a lucrative deal, right? Or so we thought and so did Ola too. But, if you have already seen the campaign, then you must have seen people's reaction as well. While Ola was hopeful that people will jump on to this opportunity, folks instead trolled Bhagat and joked that they would rather take an Uber to avoid this offer. Thnks for the warning in advance. Time to avoid @Olacabs and use @Uber_India till the 25th Sep.. ð¸ð¸ — Vinay Kumar Dokania (@VinayDokania) September 18, 2018 Thanks for the warning… OLA App deleted until further notice — Raj Malpekar (@malpekar) September 18, 2018 This looks like a conspiracy by @Uber_India to run @Olacabs out of business. I will not get into my own car if Chetan Bhagat is with me.

Till 25th it's Uber for me! — Rajan Alexander (@devconsultgroup) September 18, 2018 If I take this ride, it will be one of 'The 3 Mistakes of my life'. — Waseem Ahmed (@Waseem_Ahmed11) September 18, 2018
  8. We all have 'EX'cess baggage and some of us learn to deal with it over time. Recently, I heard my ex-girlfriend, who I dated for almost 3 years, was getting hitched. And by hitched, I mean was getting married and honestly, I didn't know how to feel about it. But then I thought, this happens to a lot of people every other day and they deal with it and so should I. At first, it was tough to deal with something like this. Only because you've spent a significant part of yourself with that person who is now a stranger to you and will be sharing herself with another person altogether. You definitely can't forget what it was like to be with them but you can do things to ease the process of being miserable and instead, be happy for them. © Warner Bros. Television So, when my ex got married I was genuinely happy for her because she eventually found what she was looking for, but I also realised there are other feelings and emotions I had to deal with, in order to not let any negativity interfere in the process. Here are 5 things to keep in mind to cope with the news in the best way possible: (1) It Is Okay To Get Upset Or Feel Bothered It's absolutely okay to feel bothered by the news. You're only human. I know I was a little unsettled when I first heard it, but don't let these emotions get ahead of you. You've shared love and other emotions with that person and now it's time to bury them for good and be happy for her. So, even if you're upset with the news, just soak it all in and focus on the positives. Obviously, if things were really meant to be, you two would still be together, right? But grieve the situation if you like. Call a friend and talk about it but don't go rogue with it and cause any harm to the situation. (2) Congratulate Her If You're On Speaking Terms Of course, my break up wasn't very amicable at first. There was a lot of hurt and blame game to deal with, but in time we both moved on and forgave ourselves and each other and would talk once in a while. When I heard the news, I sent her a congratulatory text two days later. She was happy to get one from me and responded with a 'thank you'. And that was that. I knew with that 'thank you', things had eventually come to an end for us. But I was happy I could send her a text without any hesitation, which was after I had digested the news, of course. So, maybe congratulate them and let things go forever? (3) Don't Stalk Them On Social Media If you haven't taken the news well then it's only healthy to stay away from obsessing over it. Your ex may not have told you and the news could have come through a common friend or through social media. Whatever it is, if you aren't over her, then take some steps to make sure you don't act out on the news by sending her negative comments or even stalking her silly on social media. That could be really unhealthy for you and for her. If it helps, block her momentarily and take your time to get over the news. Also try and recall time and again why it didn't work out between the two of you. (4) Talk About It To Someone If you're disturbed by the news, have a friend who has seen you with her in the past and talk about it with them. It really helps ease the situation, because you get some valid unbiased advice and it can be easier to let go of whatever you're holding onto, just by having that friend around. That's what I did and my friends really helped me out. (5) Distract Your Mind So, when I heard about my ex, I obviously got a little insecure and started distracting myself with women, because I was single. And it helped. Going on dates, meeting new people and getting more involved in work helped me in keeping myself busy. During her wedding, I left town to travel and it was good to be away. So, if you feel you need to distract yourself silly or not be around when they're getting married, it's a good idea to travel a bit and get your mind off things. Just don't start looking to hook up for the wrong reasons. Just because your ex is tying the knot, it doesn't mean you have to, too! Everyone has their time! If you still wish she was getting married to you instead, it's the worst time to think about it, because you certainly can't change things around. What you can do, is wish her well instead. Carry that love you have for someone else and try and be happy in life.
  9. It doesn't matter if you watch cricket matches or even care about the game. If India is playing against Pakistan, I can guarantee that almost the entire country is glued to the television, waiting for India's victory. Everyone obviously already knows about the most anticipated game of the Asia Cup that took place yesterday, and to say that everyone was extremely excited for it would be an understatement. In fact, even before the match started, the hashtag 'IndvsPak' was already active. Moreover, it was the perfect opportunity for India to avenge their defeat at the Champions Trophy. All the people from both the sides of the border didn't hesitate before taking a dig at each other but as we all know, the winner takes it all and Indians won the meme match on twitter. Oops, shots fired. Don't get disheartened Pakistan. I know its not easy to be the son of a successful father.#IndvPak — Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbacchhan) September 19, 2018 Wow.

  10. With 'Bigg Boss' back with its 12th edition, suddenly we have something to look forward to for our daily dosage of entertainment. It has just been 3 days and we already have people around us talking about the BB house, its inmates and brewing fights and we're loving the simmering drama. The Vichitra Jodis this season are indeed vichitra and we can totally see why was this theme was chosen in the first place. Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu have been making headlines ever since they confessed about their relationship on the show. However, we also revealed that they are not really in a relationship and everything was planned by the BB makers. Day 1 and 2 was all about people raising questions about their so-called relationship and things took a twist, when in an unaired clip, Jasleen was seen picking a single bed instead of sharing one with Anup. This left the popular bhajan singer surprised as well. View this post on Instagram Jasleen Matharu In Big Boss 12....ð A post shared by Jasleen Matharuð¤ð¸ðµ (@jasleenmatharu) on Sep 17, 2018 at 12:47am PDT He said, “ Toh main door hogaya, hum khule main soenge.” To which Jasleen quickly retorted, “Toh aap kahan pe ho abhi? Aap ek kaam karo, wait karo, aapko partner mil jaega koi.” Woah! Isn't that something? We just can't wait to watch and see how will the inmates react to this particular development? While Jasleen did tackle all the questions about her relationship with the singer quite well during the first 'Bigg Boss' task, things seem to be taking a different turn now. © ColorsTV And if you thought that was all, wait till you read the next big development where Jalota has been accused of casting couch. View this post on Instagram Happyyyyy Birthdayyyyy to my most favourite pyaare pyaare Anup Jalota ji @jalotaanup â¤â¤â¤â¤ A post shared by Jasleen Matharuð¤ð¸ðµ (@jasleenmatharu) on Jul 28, 2018 at 10:42pm PDT An Israeli model named Reena Gonal has accused him of casting coach, reported Jansatta. In 2011, she wrote a book named 'Dear Mr Bollywood' where she took the names of popular figures like Anup Jalota, director Subhash Ghai and producer-director Anees Bazmee, alleging that they took advantage of her. © Colors Talking about her journey she mentioned how she came to India in 2009 and it was SRK who inspired her to become an actor. When things didn't work out the way she wanted, she decided to return home. However, she stayed when she got a job with a new vitamin company that was being launched. Reena started promoting the brand and wanted B-town influencers to be part of it. It was then when she met Anup. They met multiple times, and even though he never became a part of the vitamin brand, he did ask her to host his show, for which she was paid an amount of Rs. 10,000 per show. View this post on Instagram Riaz with @jalotaanup ji..Woh chup rahe toh mere dil ke daag jalte haiðµ A post shared by Jasleen Matharuð¤ð¸ðµ (@jasleenmatharu) on Jul 12, 2018 at 12:32am PDT Reena also narrated how Anup opened up to him about his sad marital past and proposed to her to be his wife. She even alleged that he forcefully kissed her. While Reena made her strong case in the book, the singer has flatly rubbished all charges. He agreed that they have worked together for three years but nothing as such ever happened. Things are certainly taking an interesting turn for Jalota and we can't wait to watch what else 'Bigg Boss 12' has in store for us.
  11. Everyone is insecure about something or the other. Be it your looks, your emotions, another person or the way you feel towards certain things, but in time we do manage to do away with a myriad of insecurities to grow ahead in life. Sometimes, many of us still judge ourselves unfairly, because we always compare ourselves to someone who we feel is better than us. This, in turn, makes one really feeble and weak and sometimes undesirable. © Pinterest We don't have to compromise on our confidence and feel insecure about anything in the long run, but we seldom know ways to get rid of our insecurities. Here are 3 ways that can help you deal with any insecurity you may have: (1) Avoid Situations & People Who Make You Feel Insecure I know this is easier said than done, but you need to cut the toxicity out of your life and by that, I mean cut the root cause of your insecurity. If it's a person or certain people that are making you feel insecure about something, keep a healthy distance from them. It could be a toxic relationship that is making you insecure or a situation where you're not appreciated enough. Whatever it is, cut it off from the root and throw it away. It'll only help you move away from something that isn't meant to be for you in the first place. © Thinkstock (2) Build Your Confidence From Scratch There are numerous ways to build confidence if your insecurities get the better of you. It depends on what you're insecure about the most. If it's your body or your looks, it will help if you work on other aspects to strengthen your belief in yourself. Go out more, meet new people, don't be a recluse. If it's pertaining to another person erase all self-doubt from your mind and be self-assured. Sometimes, getting validation from other people works too, but you shouldn't rely on that all the time. © Pinterest (3) Surround Yourself With Positive & Likeminded People The more you surround yourself with people who appreciate you in whichever way, the more secure you become as a person. Insecurities only come about if you're treated a certain way by someone. It could be by your parents, your teachers, your peers, friends or even your significant other. So, it's important to recognise the people who are good for your being and stick with them rather than attract toxic people who play on your insecurities and make them worse. © Pinterest If you subconsciously soak in these three inherent qualities in life, you'll always remain truly secure with yourself and your surroundings. The further you go away from the above-mentioned ways, the more insecure you'll feel in life.

  13. You can always be sure of one thing – if a famous person says or even barely refers to India, desi people will always find out, no matter how big or small the reference is. The same thing happened when Johnny Sins made a video eating biryani. No desi person would ever leave the opportunity to troll him, I mean it's always funny to see White people trying to eat spicy Indian food. The video in question was posted on his vlog channel on YouTube – yes, he makes videos that are actually SFW – and already has more than 1 million views. Actually, it turns out that out of the 7,00,000 subscribers he has on the site, a lot of them consists of Indians. Well, no surprises there. He also was a little shady and mentioned the T-Series and PewDiePie subscriber war that is going on, but he decided to 'embrace his subscribers' unlike Pewds, who has, as we all know, made fun of Indians a bunch of times. No one can ever forget the greatest thing to happen online ever – the iconic war between PewDiePie and Ekta Kapoor. As a way of thanking his subscribers, he tried a bunch of popular Indian food items, everything from pakoras and samosas to biryani. But, doesn't he know biryani is sacred to desi people? You need to eat it the way it's intended, or you don't eat it at all. But the first strike came when he said, “I read one of the traditional ways to eat it (biryani) is with the bread.” Umm…who is educating you about Indian food bro, because this ain't it. You just DON'T eat biryani with naan. Well, you know how no one ever messes with biryani so obviously desi people came together to call him out. Oh well. Johnny Sins ruining Biryani for u.

  14. If you are reading this, it means a long-distance relationship must be the reality of your life, or somebody close to you, for you to be reading this instead of them. However, if you are in it, you know that maintaining long-distance relationships aren't the easiest of things to be undertaken. Unlike most relationships where both the partners stay in the same city, your relationship demands double the efforts and care for it to stay strong, move beyond the insecurities and bloom into a healthy, loving companionship. © Rose Movies Also, a long-distance relationship is no guarantee that fights and misunderstandings shall lessen, instead they seem to crop up ever so often, over minute issues and sometimes over genuine concerns on either of your part. Fights are a part of relationships that help us understand each other and our needs/expectations better, which only adds to the growth of our relationship. But we totally know this isn't something you look forward to especially in a long-distance relationship. So, we bring you these 5 easy steps that can help you make up with your girlfriend every single time: Step 1: Calm Those Nerves © Kunal Kohli Production If you feel this is absurd, you are wrong. We understand that a lot of times you are not at fault and don't want to say sorry either, but long-distance requires more compromising and if she's not up to it, it's best that you drop your side of the fight and take the first step. Also, anger can lead to drastic decision-making such as giving it off to your partner in a fit of anger and you DON'T wanna do that. Instead, calm down and reconsider what you seek from this relationship and then choose the stance (loving or yelling) you wanna take to see this fight through. PS. If you choose to yell at her despite the moments of silent considerations, you need to rethink this relationship. Step 2: Resist The Temptation To Hurt Her Back © Yash Raj Films It is only possible for things to turn ugly during a fight. Often the phone-call fights cease and WhatsApp fights ensue. The change in medium of communication also adds to misunderstandings, because you can't always make out the tone your partner is taking. But even during such moments, avoid the urge to give her a taste of her own words. Things we say during fights can do lasting damage and the aim to win these fights is only going to pull you apart. Prioritize your love during such moments. Step 3: Power Up On Warmth © UTV Motion Pictures No matter how pissed your girlfriend is or how irrational she seems, take responsibility for your own behaviour and reach out to her. You have calmed your nerves, now listen to her concerns and try to reach an understanding together. As you do that, ensure that the warmth is getting communicated through your conversation. Girls like to know you're making an effort to make things better and reach a mutual solution that would work in both of your favours. Such small acts of affection will calm her down as well, as it won't seem like you're relinquishing your autonomy either. Step 4: Empathy Is Key © Yash Raj Films Next in line, once you have reached an understanding as to why she is upset, try to empathise with her. If she feels a certain way and you simply wish to brush it off or want her to shove it under the carpet, it isn't going to work out. This unilateral disarmament method doesn't imply you're giving in to her manipulations, but rather suggest that you value your relationship more than a certain point of view that seems to be meddling with your heads. So try to consider her point of view and move forward with it. Step 5: Talk © Dharma Productions Once both of you have calmed down and you understand where she is coming from, begin to communicate your own concerns because, by this point, she'd be more than willing to hear you out. Be honest and tell her how this entire issue is making you feel and why (or if) you feel the fight was uncalled for. Even if you're still angry within, don't hide it. Let her know about that and wait for her to acknowledge it and respond. Trust us, she will understand and the talk will eventually nullify the anger. Try these and you'll see that these work like a charm to resolve your fight.
  15. The 12th season of 'Bigg Boss' premiered with a bang last night in Goa. Fans' excitement skyrocketed as host Salman Khan introduced all the contestants one by one. And as expected, the controversial show got the whole town talking about it right from the first episode. © Instagram First, because of its interesting concept of calling 'vichitra jodis' in the house and second was for 'King of Bhajans' (devotional songs), Anup Jalota revealing his relationship and the huge age-gap between him and his girlfriend. © Instagram For those who didn't watch the episode, 65-year-old Anup Jalota entered the 'Bigg Boss' house last night, with his 28-year-old girlfriend Jasleen Matharu. Reportedly, this is the first time the two have acknowledged their relationship and following this revelation, everyone was shocked including Salman Khan, who was in disbelief. © Instagram Although there might be an age gap of 37 years between the two, the couple is making headlines for their crackling chemistry. The two have been dating for more than three years now and in an interview with Indian Express, Jasleen opened up about her relationship, "We have been together for more than three years now. More than love, there's a lot of respect that we have for each other. People don't know about our relationship and it might come as a shock to many." View this post on Instagram Entry in big boss season 12â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ A post shared by Jasleen Matharu Officialð¤ð§ð¼ (@jasleenmatharu_official) on Sep 17, 2018 at 2:03am PDT She further added, "But I am prepared to face all criticism. I know for a fact that even the housemates will target us. They will bitch about us and call us names but it's a pure bond that we share. I can only hope that we get some sensible people in the house who understand our bond." While we don't believe in commenting about someone's relationship, but age seems to be a major concern for social media, more than the relatives of the two parties involved. Social media blew up soon after, with memes and jokes on the couple.

  16. Work days can be painful, especially when it's the same old cycle that keeps on repeating itself. Sadly, that's the reality for most people, unless you're an 'Insta-model' who keeps on going to vacations all year round while conjuring money out of thin air. Add to that the monotonous dress code for most jobs, that doesn't even allow you comfort and style (ugh). So you do what you can to make yourself feel better. Idea for this week: Wearing Varun Dhawan's formal-wear with a twist for your next big meeting. © Viral Bhayani Sometimes, changing one single element from your outfit can make all the difference. Varun has ditched the quintessential belt, and has embraced the good old suspenders instead. However, support isn't what the pair of suspenders is helping with in this particular case. Like a true blue style enthusiast, Varun decided to just let them hang, and that is doing all the work. There is just something inexplicably charming about a pair of suspenders, exhibit A, if we may. © Viral Bhayani What you should keep in mind before going ahead with this outfit is that your shirt and trousers should be extremely well-fitted. By that, we don't mean tight, never tight. A relaxed fit can also be 'well-fitted'. Just make sure your shirt is not abnormally large (neither a size too small), and your trousers end just above the ankle, while fitting you snug - but also providing you ample space for movement. © Viral Bhayani Accessorize with a statement watch, and wear a pair of glasses. Even if you don't wear prescription glasses, a pair of smart clear glasses will do wonders for your overall aesthetic. Change it to sunnies when you step out. © Viral Bhayani Try it out, and it doesn't essentially have to be for a meeting. Have a great week ahead!
  17. Apple is currently working on a perfect solution for people who keep damaging their smartphones. A new patent suggests that the Cupertino giant is trying to make their future products completely scratch-proof and even bend-proof. © Twitter The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office published Apple's new patent that details ways Apple could create “abrasion-resistant surface finishes on metal enclosures.” The patent was spotted by BGR and described as a potential “indestructible,” iPhone. Apple already made claims that the iPhone XS and XS Max has the most durable front and back glass. It has a higher level of scratch resistance than its predecessor and offers better water resistance. © Reuters BGR also adds that Apple is looking to prevent abrasive scratches that occur on iPhones when it comes in contact with hard and rough materials or even other gadgets. The company is also looking to protect its future devices from accidental drop damage. The iPhone 6 Plus was infamous for having a weak chassis and could bend when intense pressure would be applied. The new patent indicates that the company is working on a new coating that would prevent its devices from bending or other forms of deforming. © MensXP As it goes with patents, there's no way to tell if the new features could be translated to upcoming iPhones anytime soon. However, it is worthy to point out that the company is thinking towards the right direction, as customers have complained about scratches on their iPhones for a long time. Would you like Apple to implement the new patent to their smartphones sometime soon? Let us know in the comments below. Source: BGR
  18. The festive season has arrived in the country, and this also marks the beginning of the wedding season. We've always been loud party makers, and no celebration is complete without speakers blaring Punjabi raps or Bollywood mainstreams. Why just the festivities? Even our house parties and outings are usually noisy. In the mix of this, there's always that one person in the group who is responsible for getting the speakers. Here, we've made a list of speakers, ranging from fixed to portable that will help you get the party started. We have skipped the very small ones, as the objective is to have loud and powerful speakers. 1. JBL Boombox: © JBL This is among the most powerful portable speakers you can get out there, and there is an actual limit to the loudness. Not only does it deliver amazing sound quality, but also looks like a beast, that is too easy to handle. To top it, these are splash-proof, hence outdoor usage will never be a worry. Distortion is non-existent at higher volumes, it can deliver sufficient bass, and the mids and highs are properly balanced. All in all, you can play any genre and the speaker will flawlessly deliver. It can deliver at least 20 hours of music playback on a single charge and has both, wired as well as Bluetooth connectivity options. Buy from Amazon.in 2. Sony MHC-V21D: © Sony While the JBL looks very sleek and portable, it also comes with a heftier price tag. The Sony, on the other hand, delivers an equivalent performance but misses out on the top-notch design. This one is almost a tower and is made for indoor usage. It has an in-built DJ effects adder, guitar input, karaoke input, and the latest connectivity options like AUX and Bluetooth. It even sports a DVD player and can be seamlessly connected to your TV or monitor for movie playback. It weights almost 9kgs but lacks out on an in-built battery. One thing assured is, the speakers will make your living room a mini-club and the party won't stop anytime soon. Buy from Amazon.in 3. Energy Sistem Tower 8g2: © Energy Sistem This right here is a fixed set-up, not intended to be portable. But, when it comes to performance, it's best-in-class. The tower has a 120W output with a digital sound processor. Connection options include optical input, Bluetooth, USB, and microSD card. The tower is built of a wooden cabinet that provides a perfect balance along with the silk dome tweeter. There's a small display on the top for a quick view, a spare USB port to charge your devices simultaneously, a remote control that comes in the box. Buy from Amazon.in 4. JBL 2.1 Soundbar With Subwoofer: © JBL Even this one lacks portability but makes up for it with the sound quality. It features built-in dual bass port design, 300W power output along with JBL's Surround Sound technology. The subwoofer is wirelessly connected, so you never have to worry about dangling wires. The Subwoofer produces rich bass thanks to a 6.5" transducer. The bar can be connected to your TV, or mobile phone via Bluetooth. Buy from Amazon.in 5. AISEN A12UKB800: © AISEN Just like other trolley speakers, Aisen Trolley Speaker also comes with Castor Wheels for easy mobility and also gives you an option of connecting an electric guitar and a wireless microphone. It has an inbuilt rechargeable battery and two 10-inch and 6.5-inch speakers. It has a direct control board for managing the bass and treble output and features multiple connection options like AUX, USB, and Bluetooth. Buy On Amazon.in
  19. The much-awaited '2.0' teaser was dropped on the internet yesterday and the result wasn't that positive as expected. Starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, it is touted to be India's first movie to spend $75 million dollars (around Rs. 545 crores), and more than 3000 technicians have invested their skills in the making of '2.0'. The makers wanted this movie to be a grand VFX spectacle, but it seems like netizens are not that pleased with the result. They are also upset with Akshay Kumar's blink-and-miss presence in the trailer. © Dharma Productions One would totally understand that a lot more is expected from Akshay, keeping his stardom in mind. And obviously, if this is the result of the $75 million dollar-worth VFX, we wonder what the makers were actually thinking? © Dharma Productions Fans took to Twitter and made sure to express their disappointment. Here's what they have to say: The teaser is below average and Akshay Kumar was just in one frame says a lot about his stardom. — Shoaib (@50Shades0fMere) September 13, 2018 #2point0Teaser Really $75M VFX?

Donn know abt VFX. but where is Akshay Kumar in the 2.0 teaser !? #2Point0TeaserDay @DharmaMovies @BrijwaSRKman @5555Lucky @BlogDrive @PandilwarA — Durga Dash (@Durga_EthanHunt) September 13, 2018 While the teaser may have left fans disappointed, here is hoping the full trailer turns about. This is also the first Indian film to use 3D cameras. The film directed by S. Shankar will hit the screens on November 29, 2018, in both 3D and 2D.
  20. Every year the same joke comes back, with a few modifications of course, when Apple releases any new product and this time obviously wasn't any different. In case you have been living under a rock, Apple has released three new iPhones – iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr. From so much confusion about the pronunciation of the names to making our favourite kidney jokes, people on Twitter did not disappoint. Since almost all of us can't afford to upgrade every time there's a new model, we can just upgrade our jokes and make everyone laugh and all of us can unite in being poor by Apple's standards. Coming back to the pronunciation, honestly is it “excess” or “tennis”? I don't think any of the options is the better one, tbh. So much confusion. Customer: I would like to buy an iPhone tens max. Max: How many iPhones tens do you want? C: No, I want a ten s max. Max: We don't sell tennis equipment here, you'll need to go to the Sports Authority. C: No, I don't want tennis I want a TEN S MAX! Max: Third base. — Michael Moore (@Kiey) September 12, 2018 It's a match to see who can actually afford it. The new iPhone tennis match — jennananahhh (@thebadjenn) September 12, 2018 It is, tho. this iPhone Tennis thing sounds like a racket — Sebastiaan de With (@sdw) September 12, 2018 That's a good joke.

  21. Apple has unveiled the new iPhones last night and while we are super excited to get our hands on them, it has silently given us another pinch. The trillion-dollar company will no longer be shipping the tiny headphone dongles with the new iPhones. If you want one, you'll have to buy it. Apple included a spare dongle in the boxes of the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, 7, and 7 Plus phones, but the brand doesn't want to be this generous anymore. This change not only affects the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR, but also the older iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 variants. © BCCL The company was among the first to remove the 3.5mm jack from the phones starting with the iPhone 7, as it aimed to push sales of the new wireless AirPods. The removal of the popular port in itself has been controversial, but users slowly found peace with moving on to the lightning port. It was Apple's decision to skip the port, so everyone expected Apple to provide an alternate route. Apple is still selling the headphone adapter on its website for its usual US$ 9 (Rs 650). It's infuriating to see Apple skip such a tiny yet helpful accessory, especially when the customer needs to shell out at least US$ 749 (Rs 76,000 in India) for the starting variant of the not-so-cheap iPhone XR. © Apple Apple is known for this over the years though, the company also removed the essential USB-A port from its MacBook Pro lineup, forcing people to move onto USB-C and Thunderbolt. But, a plethora of accessories out there are still on the mainstream USB-A format, so you'd end up with a ton of dongles that have to be purchased separately (obviously)! Unfortunately, Apple feels two years are enough for users to move on and adapt themselves with wireless AirPods or something similar. This expectation is funny given the company conveniently decided to skip the AirPower wireless charging mat at yesterday's launch. AirPower was unveiled last year along with the iPhone X and was expected to launch in 2018, but we've almost reached the end of the year and there's no word on it. © Apple So, Apple can choose to skip and completely forget its own products that focus on the future of wireless, but expects us to always remember, "Future is wireless!"

  22. If not treated in the right manner, oily skin becomes a nightmare to deal with. After all, who wants to deal with the excess oil production (and the resultant pimple and acne breakouts) that come along with it? The fact that having oily skin can be a major turn off for the ladies doesn't help either. So on that note, here are five basic skin care tips that men with oily skin should make sure they follow. 1) Make Sure Your Skin Is Hydrated © Instagram/Vicky Kaushal Ensuring that you keep your skin hydrated is perhaps the first, and most essential, skin care tip that'll help you combat oily skin as it'll help wash off the natural oils your skin secretes. As such, investing in a quality face wash that will help you keep your skin hydrated is highly recommended. Pro tip: Ustraa is known for curating the best face washes for oily skin (https://www.happilyunmarried.com/ustraa/ustraa-face-wash-oily-skin-acne-oil-control-100gm.html), some of which come infused with lime and basil extracts and are tailor-made for oily skin. 2) Ensure You Exfoliate Your Skin Regularly © Unsplash Just ensuring that you are regularly keeping your skin hydrated is not enough, you also have to exfoliate it from time to time. After all, how else will you remove those dead skin cells and unblock those clogged pores? So invest in a quality face scrub and you'll be good to go. Pro tip: Investing in an A-grade face scrub for oily skin (https://www.happilyunmarried.com/ustraa/face-scrub-de-tan.html) will go a long way in ensuring you never have to deal with acne breakouts. 3) Adopt A Healthier Diet © Pexels What you eat has a significant effect on your skin's health, after all it's not for nothing that people say “you are what you eat”. So make sure you adopt a healthier diet and you'll be able to keep your skin's oil production in check. Pro tip: Maintaining a diet that is rich in green vegetables, almond milk, fruits and brown rice is highly recommended. 4) Don't Underestimate The Importance Of Moisturising A good moisturiser should be your go-to tool to help you combat oiliness. Contrary to popular belief, using a moisturiser will NOT make your skin look greasier, especially if you use the right moisturiser that can help keep your skin moist and rejuvenated. 5) Use Oil-Free Products © Pexels Last, but certainly not least, you need to make sure that your grooming regimen contains oil-free products. This might seem like a no-brainer, but an alarming number of men actually invest in skin care products WITHOUT even taking a look at the ingredients being used in those products So pay more attintion to the ingredients your grooming products are infused with and opt for oil-free variants.
  23. A lot of people claim that they can go to the ends of the Earth for their lover, you know, the “aasmaan se taare tod launga” type? As cliche as it might sound, some girls do get flattered by such passionate proclamations, but imagine if you happen to witness something of the sort (though, of course, not to an equivalent degree of similarity but equally hatke), and also be unintentional and weirdly connected to the entire episode, how would that make you feel? Something very similar happened to all those girls at the University of Calgary in Canada who went by the name 'Nicole'. On a regular college day, 246 Nicole(s) who were enrolled in the University of Calgary received a mass email from a university freshman named Carlos Zetina. © Twitter In the mail, he stated that his message was intended for the Nicole, who he had met at the campus bar the previous night, who was from Holland, who probably thought Nietzsche was depressing and who had perhaps given him a wrong number by mistake, hence making it impossible for him to reach out to her again. This man just emailed EVERY SINGLE NICOLE AT U OF C bc he got given a fake number. We now have a FB group and plans for a Nicole hang out. Thanks Carlos xoxo pic.twitter.com/bRAT5sXRtV — Nicole Sparling (@irish_dancer66) September 7, 2018 Imagine landing yourself such an earnest and persistent guy who, we're hoping, has no skewed intentions. However, the email led to the coming together of a number of Nicole(s) from the mailing list and a mini meetup happened where all the other girls decided to help Zetina track down the actual Nicole. © Twitter They set up a Facebook group called 'Nicole From Last Night' and formed a 'Nicole network' to find the intended recipient of the email. Apparently, Zetina had written the mail to not appear like a guy who didn't bother to text back a girl after taking her number. Ah, well. It's the thought that counts right? At long last, the actual Nicole (who hadn't received the mass email) heard about the interesting developments from a fellow friend and responded on the group, stating that she was the girl Zetina was looking for and that he must have taken down a digit incorrectly in her number, which led to the entire situation. Well, all is well that ends well, right? Even Zetina wouldn't have imagined this would become so big a thing on social media.
  24. Varun Dhawan's 'Sui Dhaaga' promotion run has seen so many out-of-the-box outfit combinations, that it's difficult to pick one out as our favourite. However, we might just have found the one, post his latest appearance in a kurta pyjama. The thing that sets this particular look apart is the fact that he has chosen to not tread the beaten track by choosing jootis or Kolhapuris as his footwear. We'll come to that in a bit, but for now, we can't stop marvelling at the beauty that Manish Malhotra has created here. When was the last time you ran into a kurta so intricate and, well, pretty? Plus, it's yellow! © Instagram/The Vainglorious Varun attended the 'Eco-friendly' Ganpati event in this attire, accompanied by Anushka Sharma, who looked ravishing in black. However, when it comes to outfits, we sure can't move our glance from the beautifully embroidered kurta our homie is wearing here. Be it a Pooja or any other occasion where ethnic-wear is preferred (especially something with parents involved), this is pretty much the benchmark for a man in terms of an appropriate outfit. © Viral Bhayani Now, about what makes the ensemble stand out. Varun could have chosen a pair of jootis or Kolhapuris to make the whole outfit purely Indian, but he chose not to. He instead wore a pair of black leather shoes from Tod's, which gave the outfit a whole new dimension that many of us were unaware of. Shoes do look great with Kurta Pyjama even when you aren't wearing an achkan/jacket! Now we know. © Instagram/The Vainglorious Varun kept the accessories minimal by sticking with only a pair of statement sunnies (well, they are Prada and you don't really need much post that). © Viral Bhayani Definitely one of the best looks of the year on Varun!
  25. One thing we've known for sure is, OnePlus is gearing up to launch its next phone. And given the company's release schedule over the past few years, we also knew that it will be the OnePlus 6T. The phone has been subject to a handful of leaks, but there is nothing concrete to bank on. Now, OnePlus has ended speculation about at least one aspect of the phone. It says an in-display fingerprint reader is coming to the 6T. The company is calling the implementation of the technology as “Screen Unlock,” according to CNET. © CNET "We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action," said OnePlus in an email to CNET. "By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlocking options such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is most efficient for them." We first got a hint of OnePlus opting for an in-display fingerprint scanner last week when the retail box of the phone leaked. The addition was expected by many in the industry as OnePlus, Vivo, and OPPO belong to the same holding company, and the other two brands have heavily banked upon the new feature this year. © Phone Arena The in-display fingerprint scanner is the future. According to reports, Apple and Samsung have been experimenting with the technology as well and it won't be long before we see physical scanners go extinct in the coming years. Vivo was the first brand to release the technology for consumer use via the X21 (first generation scanner), and since then it has improved vastly. According to a report on Phone Arena, the phone is expected to launch on October 17. If true, this means that this year, OnePlus will be launching its T phone a little early. © Weibo The OnePlus 6T is also expected to sport a water-droplet style notch. Earlier, there have been rendered leaks suggesting the phone will also house a triple rear camera setup, though the authenticity of the same cannot be verified. One thing we know for sure is, the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 6GB or 8GB RAM. Source: Phone Arena
