  1. The International Space Station, as we all know, is currently the only fully functional space station in the Earth's lower orbit. It's the result of a partnership between European countries represented by the European Space Agency the United States, Japan, Canada, and Russia. Well, looks like there's going to be another space station by the year 2030 and it's going to be launched by none other than India. The same has been confirmed by the ISRO chief K Sivan during a press conference where he also talked a bit more about the project. © Reuters He made it a point to inform that India will not be joining the International Space Station (ISS) and launch its own space station, which will be an extension of the Gaganyaan project. “We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme. So, subsequently, as a long-term plan, we are planning to have the space station in India. We are going to join the international community in manned missions to the moon, asteroids. We have a clear plan for the space programme,” Sivan said. The proposed space station will likely weigh 20 tonnes and it's said to be used for conducting microgravity experiments. India is targetting 2030 as the date to launch the space station and the preliminary plan is for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space. We still don't have a lot of details, but we hope to learn more after the completion of Gaganyaan mission. © Reuters As for the Gaganyaan mission, the government is said to have cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore. It looks like there will be two flights from Sriharikota before the maiden flight with crew takes of sometime in 2022. ISRO's complete focus right now is on India's second moon mission, Chandrayan -2. It will take off on July 15 and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, which has remained an uncharted territory so far. You can learn more about the Chandrayan-2 mission right here.
  2. Whether you wish to get to know this girl in your class or want to be friends with the lively girl in your office who makes those eight hours look less dreary all of a sudden, the first step is to be able to get her to notice you. However, it's a lot easier said than done, and for obvious reasons too. More often than not, guys have a hard time going up to women and introducing themselves good-naturedly without seeming like a creep. © Dharma Productions However, things need not always be that way for men. A lot of times, men genuinely wish to get to know a woman and are honestly interested in giving it a shot and see where things will go. But a number of inhibitions and 'concerns' burden their minds, and deter them from following through with their original plans. But fret not, we have some really quick, not-at-all-awkward and “safe” ways of catching that woman's attention you are pining after. Check out these 6 easy ways of getting noticed by a girl without losing your mind over it: 1. Share A Smile (Or Five) That's the very first one that you should try. And honestly, that's also the safest way. A smile can never rub someone the wrong way, unless you are passing her a sleazy smile. But apart from that, sharing a confident smile every time you come face to face with them is just about the right way of starting things. © Red Chillis Entertainment 2. Attend To Her Before you think of anything else, no we're not talking about carrying her shopping bags for her or something (though that's always a nice touch), but what we really mean is that pay attention to what she says and does, when you share her company. Women notice when someone is being attentive towards them, and that always ends well. 3. Reciprocate Whenever necessary, make the effort of reciprocating her gestures and behaviour towards you. Reciprocating or mirroring the other person always catches their attention, try it. © RSVP Films 4. Dig Deeper To Find Shared Interests This might take a little bit of effort from your side, but try to find out what interests the woman you are crushing on. Suppose it's travelling that interests them, you can share (not brag) about your personal travel experiences when you guys share each other's company. That'll surely get her to notice you. © Maddock Films 5. A Hello Goes A Long Way A simple hello often takes too much work, but it's one of the easiest ways of taking things up a notch and gauging things for yourself. Try a “hey, how are you” the next time you see them and see how that goes. 6. Get Your Friends Involved Another fool-proof way of treading this path is to get your common friends involved so they can introduce you guys during a social setting, and there's no way things could get awkward after that.
  3. Most guys who go to the gym, want to get big and strong. They want to develop a physique which looks good with and without clothing. Chances are, you have the same goal and you have tried every strategy to bulk up and develop a muscular physique. If you have failed to do so, there is a high possibility of you getting inaccurate information. Or you have been fooled to think that you can only grow muscle if you take steroids. Here is a 5-step guide you can follow to gain muscle drug-free: 1. Lift Weights © Getty Images If you aren't engaging in resistance training, then begin soon! Doing cardio is not bad, but it can be detrimental when done too much; especially when your motive is bulking. Resistance training is a sure-shot way to improve your body composition and to literally direct the systems of your body to hypertrophy the skeletal muscle mass. Engaging in resistance training 3-5 times a week can give you an anabolic boost which can help you grow. Your training routine MUST contain multi-joint movements like the bench-press, push-ups, barbell-squats, barbell-deadlifts, dumbbell shoulder presses, etc. Performing only isolated movements like bicep curls and tricep extensions will not help you achieve your goal as these movements target the smaller muscles. Always make an attempt to progressively overload your training by increasing either the number of sets, repetitions or the weight lifted. Take a step back if you feel that the training load is almost impossible to lift and could cause injury. Be consistent and persistent. 2. Eat More © Getty Images It is already known among the masses that nutrition plays a big role in bringing changes to the body composition. Gaining and losing weight follow a simple but complicated rule: Reducing your calories than what you usually consume leads to weight loss and increasing calories than what you usually consume leads to weight gain. However, this definition is very basic and it requires specifics in terms of grams of the macronutrients to be consumed. While bulking, carbohydrate and protein are the main macronutrients that will help you achieve your “gainz”. It is simply so because carbohydrate will fuel your workouts while protein will help with recovery. It is very important for you to understand the macronutrient-breakdown of your current diet and to determine a rough estimate of calories on which you maintain your current body weight. Consuming 1.6-1.8 g of protein/ kg of body weight is recommended during the bulking phase. There are some recommendations that range higher than these but increasing your protein dosage slowly over time makes sense if you are not eating enough. Regardless of whether you are vegetarian or not, you must try to consume protein from a variety of sources. Consuming approximately 3-4g of carbohydrate/ kg of body weight is recommended during the bulking phase. The rest of the calories must come from fat. Note: These are only theoretical estimates and the intake of macronutrients only depends on your current diet and how your body responds to change. Changes in body composition are highly individualistic. 3. Sleep Like A Baby Growth occurs whilst you rest. This is where many individuals fall prey to over-training and don't rest enough for efficient recovery. Sleep is the best time when our bodies rest and repair and the common recommendation is 7-9 hours of sleep each night. While sleeping 8-9 hours per night may sound too much due to hectic work schedules, maintaining 7 hours of sound sleep each night is the least you can do for growth. Sleeping enough also ensures a strike in your hormone profile which positively affects your bulking process. 4. Track Your Progress © Getty Images Keep a track of your measurements and body-weight. Each body has a different tendency to gain weight but theoretically gaining 1-2 lbs (roughly 0.4- 0.9 kg) of weight per month is acceptable. Aiming to gain too much too fast increases chances of gaining more fat than usual (regardless, you will gain some fat during the bulking process). 5. Enjoy The Process Enjoying this journey will keep you away from unnecessary stress. Stress is known to impair growth which directly affects your muscle-building procedure. It is YOU who have decided to undergo this journey and it is YOU who will have to be patient until you see apparent results. Winning the bulking phase requires no rocket-science; it only requires you to stick to the process for long enough.
  4. Beating the heat can be really tough, especially when you know that the second you will step out of the house, you'll face the harsh heat. In this weather, breathing is a task. Surviving through the day is like surviving a long drawn out battle. But understand this, taking care of yourself, like wearing the right clothes and carrying water is crucial, however, taking care of your skin is equally important. The hot Summer winds can leave a deep tan on your face. They can even leave your hair brittle and dry and in the worst case scenario, an allergy that might need medical attention if your work involves long hours under the harsh rays of the sun. So, here are some products that you most definitely should apply before stepping out of the house: 1. Prep Your Skin With Sunscreen © nykaa Start by taking some sunscreen and dabbing it gently all over your face. A regular work week means long hours of exposure under the sun which means you need to prep your skin with sunscreen to save your face from the exposure of the harmful UV rays. A good SPF doesn't just prevent a burn or a tan but saves you from toxic UV that is known to cause skin cancer. Also, remember to use the sunscreen thirty minutes before you step out in the sun for maximum effect. 2. Carry A Balm Stick With You © nykaa The harsh rays of the sun don't just affect your skin. They also affect your lips. And if you don't take proper care of your lips, you might end up with chapped lips that look unattractive and unhealthy. To nix that, carry a lip balm that you can use whenever you feel dryness. 3. A Face Mist/ Face Wipes © nykaa © nykaa After long hours outside, if you find yourself, sweating profusely use a face mist or face wipes. It's not practical to constantly find a washroom to wash your face in situations like these. A face mist or wipes do the job and freshen up your face in seconds. 4. A Good Moisturizer © nykaa It's important to not just moisturize your face before stepping out in the sun but also your entire body or at least the parts that will be exposed in the sun. This will help fight the dryness. Keep your arms, elbows, knees, feet etcetra moisturized.
  5. Finally, perhaps the most awaited episode ever, of any TVseries so far, is out. The longest ever episode of 'Game of Thrones', at an hour and 22 minutes, had fans gearing up for the longest battle scene ever filmed in the history of television. Well, before we start discussing it in subsequent articles, here is a sneaky bunch of 'spoilers without context' pictures for you to enjoy, that is, only if you have watched the episode. © Getty Images © Getty Images © Getty Images © Getty Images © Getty Images © Getty Images © Dharma Productions The only thing we're wondering right now is, what next? Seriously!
  6. The wait is finally over, the movie is out, and yes it was incredible, better than anyone and everyone's expectations as well. I'm guessing only a few people have watched it till now and we're still avoiding giving out spoilers for a few hours because, as the Russo Brothers said, Thanos still demands our silence. But, for people who have watched it, they obviously can't stop themselves from talking about it. So, here's a loophole - spoilers without context, so nothing is actually getting spoiled. There's a bonus as well - they're all truly hilarious. Spoilers without context are perfectly balanced, as all things should be, since people who haven't watched won't have the movie spoiled for real, and everyone who's watched it can have a laugh. So, here's my pick of a few spoilers without context because it's the best way to talk about the movie without actually talking about the movie. 1.

  7. Introduced to the world in 1873 in a totally different context, denims have become an integral part of our lives today. What started out as men's attire, has now become a staple separate of people around the world. The term jean owes its origin to the Italian city of Genoa where the fabric was first made, dyed blue even in those days (hence called blue de Genes or literally blue of Genoa). The dye came from Indian Indigo extracted from the plant which was first domesticated in India. Although a plethora of innovative materials are available in the market, denim remains one of the most ingenious, protean, durable and highly sought after fabrics on the market. It is one of the only items of clothing to transcend gender, age, and class - having a long and interesting life to date. The reason for their fruition has as much to do with their cultural meaning as their physical construction. On the occasion of World Denim Day we will walk through the journey of this wonder garment detailing the phases of its evolution and popularity: 1950s - The Birth Of Cool Jeans Teenagers embraced blue jeans in the 1950s when Hollywood movies introduced jeans as a fashionable statement piece of rebellion against the status quo. Light washes, cuffed denim styles and black basic jeans were the regnant jeans trends among men. Women rarely wore denim during the 1950s. 1960s - Jeans As Counter Culture Fashion 1960sgave birth to and nurtured the hippie culture. The youthful, free love movement that rocked American culture encased the most classic casual blue jean, which was representing the freedom from more structured pieces of clothing. In the prevalent decade of creative expression through the sense of fashion, personalizing the denim was considered very groovy. Embroidered bright colors with stone washed finishes and patches were just a few of the dominant jean trends at the time. Popular cuts included bell bottom flares and low-rise hip huggers. Denim on denim also embarked its first real appearance as a fashion trend during the 1960swhen jean jackets became standard hippie wear. 1980s -The Birth of Designer Jeans Stone wash, acid wash, and ripped jeans were some of the most in-demand looks of this decade, along with the new, skinnier leg cuts with tapering detailing at the ankle. 1990s - Baggy Jeans Denim fashion changed its face yet again in the 1990s, as the grunge era in fashion began. In this decade, jeans became more about slouchy, casual style than something one would prefer as a dress up essential. Multiple pockets and tabs, head-to-toe denim ensembles with dungarees and dresses were among the trendier looks which were in vogue among younger women. The rise of hip hop brought about a rise in the popularity and preference of baggy jeans, for men. 2000s - Skinny Jeans Take Over In the early 2000s, pop stars popularized the trend of ultra low-rise jean. Denim also became a fashion staple once again, becoming an appropriation and necessity. Flare and boot cut denim were among the most popular cuts of the early 2000s and a hit in an array of washes. But the biggest revolution in the denim style story of the decade began in the mid-to-late 2000s, with the resurgence of the skinny jean as an offering of innovations in denim stretch technology. 2010s- Higher Waists and Cropped Legs The trend in denim fashion headed towards variety, although skinnier styles for women remained the most popular by a huge margin, and are a fashion mainstay for most women, because of their versatility. High-waist jeans had their own segment of popularity. 2019 – GYMJNS This is slated to be the next evolution in denims with features like a '4-way dynamic stretch' or an 'ergonomic construction,' making denims perfect for workouts as well. Keeping in mind the demand for something cool, durable and versatile to match the fast-paced life of a millennial, GYMJNS are designed for the outrageously stylish fitness enthusiast. The first brand to introduce these denims is Spykar. These denims are ideal for those who like to pack their day with many exciting things including work-outs. What makes them a wardrobe must-have is their super comfortable and stretchy nature with a great fit and sporty styling. Author Bio: Mr Abhishek Yadav is the Head of Design for Spykar Lifestyle.
  8. Summer months are always exhausting as the heat makes everything all the more tiring. A list of tasks that are hard to process includes washing clothes or taking a shower because getting up and taking a shower can sometimes be so exhausting, even just in theory. So, if you want to figure out a quick and easy regime to get away from the tiresome process of taking a shower, you should consider these: 1. Have You Heard Of Dry Shampoo? © Getty Images Dry shampoo is a Godsend product, quite literally. If your hair is not on point and you need a quick fix, you should consider dry shampoos. Two-three puffs of this product will make your oily/ dirty hair look fresh again. 2. Face Wipes Are Great For A 10-Second Fix © Getty Images If you have to wake up and rush out, face wipes are a good replacement for a face wash. Scented ones will leave a lingering fragrance which makes them completely worth the money they come for. 3. Don't Forget The Deodorant © Getty Images If you're heading out and possibly don't have time for anything at all. There's one thing you should always keep handy to keep yourself stink-proof: a deodorant. 4. When In Doubt, Moisturize © Getty Images Our skin tends to dry up very easily. A good moisturizer helps hydrate skin which makes it look healthier than an unmoisturized dry face. 5. A Mouthwash Can Save Your Life © Getty Images Trust us. You don't want people to not like you just because you smell bad. A mouthwash makes that difference. Just use some before you step out.
  9. After teasing his fans for months, the official teaser of Arjun Kapoor's 'India's Most Wanted' is finally out and looks like we'll see Arjun in a never-seen-before avatar. The teaser begins with a voice-over and partial glimpses of a man who is nameless and faceless. He is the mastermind behind 52 bomb blasts, which killed as many as 433 people and left 810 injured and shook the nation from its core. Fox Star Studios In a bone-chilling voice, the man says "A soul never dies, only the body dies. I am not killing people, just sending them into another body. I am not saying this, this was said by Shri Krishna in the sacred Gita." The nameless man is then referred to as India's Osama, the most dreaded terrorist. Fox Star Studios Arjun Kapoor appears in the later part of the video as Prabhaat, an intelligence officer who is willing to catch the nameless and faceless terrorist, but without any guns or support. Jut like the description of the video says, "A manhunt with no guns, no glory, only guts." Since, Arjun Kapoor and his team of unsung heroes are not going to use any guns, we wonder if they will catch him by shouting 'Thain Thain'. While Arjun Kapoor appeared in the second half of the teaser, we are more intrigued to know more about the guy playing the antagonist. We'll get to know it once the movie releases on 24th May. Inspired by true events, 'India's Most Wanted' is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta.
  10. While Sara Ali Khan maybe the new talk of the town when it comes to Bollywod, she's certainly an old timer where traffic rules are concerned. We say that because a few days ago Sara was spotted in Delhi, with Kartik Aaryan during the 'Love Aaj Kal 2' shoot. They both were seen on a bike and while Sara was riding pillion, she didn't have a helmet on, breaking an absolute important traffic rule. © Instagram A video of the two on a bike, without Sara wearing a helmet, went viral as well. @dtptraffic @DelhiPolice @CPDelhi pL note that Sara Ali khan having instagram account https://t.co/UdynVSlm8A has been riding pillion on a 2 wheeler on the streets of Delhi Without a Head Protective Helmethttps://t.co/YlijE0PodR https://t.co/ctrOxxs7gX reg No DL 35 CK O215 pic.twitter.com/cT7hPcyqop — Stinger Bee #NyayForIndia (@joerave) 17 March 2019 Now, according to reports, a complaint has been filed against Sara for disobeying basic traffic rules and not wearing a helmet, and Delhi Police is reportedly looking in to the matter closely. The police have sent her a notice and have said they wouldn't excuse her and take action against her callousness, under the Motors Vehicle Acts, after facts pertaining to the incident are received, perused and verified.

Well, all we can say is better luck next time Sara and we hope the repercussions aren't all that bad for you. For now, we'll just wish you luck for 'Love Aaj Kal 2'.
  11. OnePlus flagship phone, the OnePlus 6T, is a powerful smartphone. It's one of the most affordable flagship phones you can buy right now, and it can handle almost everything you throw at it. If you don't believe us, then wait till you see what a Dutch hacker name Bas Timmer did. Timmer, who's recently ported Windows on Arm (WoA) on the OnePlus 6T, posted a video on Twitter showing the PC version of 'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' running on the OnePlus 6T. Yes, you heard it right. The video shows a OnePlus 6T smartphone running the full Windows version of the game. The hacker made it a point to clarify that he used Windows on Arm to make it happen. Here, see the video for yourself - Watch out for the most 'why would you even think of doing this' crossover gameplay video combining WoA with a modification for a formerly-popular FPS series, running live in XTA + Adreno drivers. pic.twitter.com/zBR6FcqPQl — NTAuthority (@NTAuthority) April 8, 2019 As you can see, the video shows Timmer starting the game and entering the popular Rust level. Of course, the game isn't running as smooth as it would on a proper gaming rig, but it seems to be holding up pretty darn good. In fact, the game appears to be running at over 30 FPS, although he didn't really show a proper session of gameplay. © Call Of Duty That being said, the fact that he was able to get the game even running is incredibly cool. Remember, 'Modern Warfare 2' is quite a demanding title, and being able to run on OnePlus 6T shows exactly how powerful the phone really is. Timmer will apparently be posting more info about this, and we can't wait to learn how he did it, and play it ourselves.
  12. Summer is almost here, and it is bringing with it a hoard of issues that we absolutely hate. Now, issues such as sweat are easily treatable, because they are right there, in your face - but what you need to be really careful about are issues that are not so apparent. For example, sun damage. We Indian men are not exactly careful in general about matters related to male beauty, but we should be when it comes to sun damage, because it's more to do with health. © Getty Images Sun damage can bring forth a lot of issues that don't end at simple tanning. But it can be controlled easily, if one remembers to apply sunscreen before stepping out, every time. The trouble is, most of us ignore it. Here are 5 solid reasons why you should never step out without applying sunscreen, especially in Summer. © Getty Images 1. Sunscreen can work wonders while keeping skin cancer at bay. Dermatologist Dr Ronald M. Shelton (MD) says, "Sunscreen application is important any day you'll be outside. Men and women should use sunscreen to help reduce the numbers of skin cancers that you might develop later in life. Most skin cancers develop 4 or more decades after the injury, but the additional function of sunscreen, for which it is important for you to use it even if you're 60+, is that it helps prevent the sunshine's damage to the skin's immune cells that help reverse the DNA damage of the sun from years ago. Therefore, the use of sunscreen today can lessen skin cancer that has been trying to form since youth." © Getty Images 2. According to most dermatologists, 60-90% effects of aging start showing on skin because of sun. Elastin and Collagen are the base behind youthful skin, and both are damaged because of sun exposure. Using a sunscreen regularly can help you protect them, in turn keeping your skin young. © Getty Images 3. Sunscreen can prevent hyper-pigmentation and acne. When the skin is exposed to sun rays for a long time, hyper-pigmentation takes place, and leaves your skin super tanned, and sometimes red and burnt. Also, UV rays help bacteria grow on skin, resulting in acne breakouts. Applying sunscreen before going out can minimize both, to a great extent. © Getty Images So homies, please do your skin a favour, and always remember to do the needful before you step out.
  13. Indian men face a lot of issues with their hair, because of the climactic inconsistency and pollution all around. However, more often than not, they don't pay heed to the urgency of the situation before it's too late, and as a result, end up with severe issues such as chronic hair fall, dandruff, itchy scalp, weak hair strands etc. There, however, exists an easy way out that can take care of your hair and scalp health, without much effort. The magic ingredient? Coconut oil. © Getty Images Coconut oil is a super underrated product that can transform your hair and scalp magically. Remember the good old champi from your childhood that your mother always insisted on doing every Sunday? There are several reasons behind it, and here are 5 of them. 1. Coconut oil is packed with Vitamins and micro-nutrients that can do wonders for your hair. You know how a good diet full of nutritious food items is good for your body? It works the same way with coconut oil for your hair. It is the best 'hair food'. © Getty Images 2. Coconut oil helps your hair to grow faster and thicker. The essential fatty acids and vitamins found in coconut oil help to remove sebum around hair roots, and subsequently help in faster, healthy hair growth. © Getty Images 3. Coconut oil can heal your scalp when you are suffering from dandruff. Apply warm coconut oil slowly on your scalp using your fingertips, and leave it on overnight. You should ideally wrap your head with a towel, or an old T-shirt. In the morning, wash it off with some Epsom salt solution to get rid of the excess skin bits. © Getty Images 4. Coconut oil, perhaps, is the best natural conditioner. If you want to 'deep condition' your hair, oil your hair with coconut oil, leave it on overnight, and wash it off with a mild shampoo the next day. © Getty Images 5. A head massage with coconut oil every week increases blood circulation and gets rid of headaches because of stress. Try it, and you will see the difference soon.
  14. Here's a realistic scenario for you. For some xyz reason, you have to shave the beard off your face. However, shaving your beard is like a nightmare that you don't want to take part in. You're afraid of razor burns and cuts. But if you shave while taking care of everything, you might possibly master the technique of the good shave sans razor burns. 1. Take A Hot Bath © Getty Images Hot water makes your skin soft which reduces friction between your skin and the beard and helps the razor glide through your skin smoothly. 2. Lather Up © Getty Images Take two blobs of the shaving cream and massage gently on your face and neck then you wait for a while and let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes. It's important to remember that a dry shave drags the blade across the skin, increasing the likelihood of ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and irritation. 3. Use A Fresh Blade © Getty Images Men use old blades that cause tears in the skin that can be uncomfortable. A standard razor can be used about 5 to 7 times before it gets spoilt. 4. Respect The Order © Getty Images Start with the sides of your beard, then move to your neck and up your chin, and end with your moustache. Mixing things up might lead to haphazard growth. 5. Reduce The Pressure © Getty Images Pushing hard against your skin only increases skin irritation. Avoid rough handling by smoothly gliding by using a pre-shave essential oil. 6. Rinse & Repeat © Getty Images Wash the razor after every two strokes to clear stubble and cream that can cause nicks. Finally, apply a moisturizer to help your skin heal.
  15. Now that you've found your way here, I am pretty glad. Yes, I know why you clicked on this article in the first place. It could be sheer curiosity, enthusiasm or just plain 'ol knowledge but since you're here, let me tell ways that are appropriate on how to get a girl wet this Holi. And by 'wet', I mean with water and colours and everything else Holi stands for. Why do you need to know these so-called guidelines? Because women are genuinely tired of telling men to stop groping them in the name of playing Holi, just so they can escape sheer humiliation and despair on a festival that summarises fun in every spectacular way possible. © Eros International While I am sure you all have your manners and your hands in place, there are still some instances when you'd go all out to tease your crush with colours, or try and pour a bucket of water on that 'hot' aunty, but lads, let me tell you one thing; while you suspect no one's really watching you unravel your horniest instinct on one of the most sacrosanct festivals in the country, women do have their eyes and their conscience open. How? Because it's 2019 and there's no possible escape route for you than to adhere to some guidelines, while you're out playing Holi with women, you know or may not know. So, here's how you get a woman wet this Holi: (1) Stick To The Face When you're at a Holi party or gathering, you're mostly going with the flow and applying colour to whoever comes before you. At that moment, you usually forget that while applying colours, you're also initiating 'touch' and while that's festive and enduring, it can also classify as 'inappropriate' if it's not welcomed. So, in case you're smearing colour on a woman, stick to the face, her cheeks mostly. Don't go beyond that, unless you two are absolutely comfortable with it. Because once you disobey THIS guideline, it's going to be serious hell for you, if she finds your actions inappropriate I.E. © Eros International (2) How Many Balloons Are Too Many Balloons? Nope, no double entendres here mate. By balloons, I mean water balloons. While they're fun to play with, water balloons shouldn't be fired at anyone without consent TBH. Well, if you're playing with a group of people, consent flows naturally because you all partake in the celebrations, but if you're in 'Counter-Strike' mode, hiding on your balcony and aiming balloons at neighbours by secretly turning into a peeping tom for the night, it's a pretty bad idea. No one likes to be hit with balloons when they're not playing with you. Even at a gathering, be mindful of how and where you throw a balloon on a woman and I am pretty sure you know what I mean by that. © BCCL (3) If She Doesn't Want To Drink, Respect That While you may enjoy alcohol and bhaang on Holi, a lot of people just want to have some casual fun and not get too intoxicated. Your job is to respect that and not shove a glass of bhaang down someone's gullet, just because it's Holi. If she says she doesn't want to drink, don't underestimate that and think maybe she's just being shy. No, she isn't because if she wanted to drink, she would. So, be mindful when she says no to alcohol, or anything else. © Pinterest (4) If You're Roaming About As a Group Of Boys, Don't Harass Women On The Streets This one's a common activity women are subjected to every Holi. It's true because a lot of women I know go through sheer harassment from a bunch of boys doing the rounds, drunk, on Holi. If you're drunk or intoxicated on bhaang, it's advisable to celebrate the festival in a space that's not an inconvenience to the others. But if you're going about harassing women, throwing colours or water on them without consent, then you shouldn't be playing at all! © Pinterest (5) Keep Your Eggs, Grease, Mud & Strong Colours To Yourself If you're out and about carrying any of the above, in the name of fun, I suggest don't play with women. You can keep the horrible extravaganza limited to some boy fun instead. No one, I repeat no one fancies a greasy-colour-bath or a handful of mud on their face or anywhere else on their body. It's really gross and horrible and no one wants to be subjected to it. © Pinterest So, there you go, a short but precise guide on how to play Holi appropriately with your gang or any gang of girls and get them wet in a manner they'd truly appreciate.

  16. Just like planning out your Holi party is on the top of your list of priorities right now, taking care of your skin is equally important. Holi colours can leave a deep hue on your face for days post-Holi. They can even leave your hair brittle and dry and in the worst case scenario, an allergy that might need medical attention. So, here are some products that you shouldn't leave your house without applying before having fun with colours: 1. Prepping Your Skin With Sunscreen Start by taking some sunscreen and dabbing it gently all over your face. Holi parties mean long hours of exposure under the sun which means you need to prep your skin with sunscreen to save your face from the exposure of the harmful UV rays. © Getty images 2. Lots Of Oil For a festival like Holi, It's best to lather your entire body and hair with a thick layer of oil. We recommend sesame oil and coconut oil but you can also apply any other effective oil that you're comfortable with. This additional layer acts as a barrier against all the strong colours and prevents them from seeping into your skin by preventing direct contact. © Getty images 3. Heavy Duty Balms Heavy duty balms like Vaseline add an extra layer of protection for your lips and for your face. If you have sensitive skin, you should definitely not step out of your house without wearing a heavy duty lip balm. © Getty images 4. Face Moisturizer Face moisturizers may seem inconsequential for this, but it's not. Your face always needs a good moisturizer to guard you against pimples, blisters, and other scars. However, use the moisturizer ten minutes after sunscreen so that everything blends in seamlessly. © Getty images
  17. When trying to come up with a shaving routine that works, different men have differing points of view on how to go about it. Some minimalists view just a razor and a source of lather as the complete package. Others are swayed by the latest advertisements and flood their bathrooms with an extensive range of shaving supplies. Unfortunately, whether it's due to lack of proper care or sheer overkill, the result of both these strategies often seems to be an unsatisfactory shave (usually coupled with some sort of annoying skin irritation or rash!) Even though men might disagree on what their ideal shaving kit should contain, there are a few essentials that should be present in any case. All of these items work together cohesively to give you the smoothest and closest shave possible. Even though you can add a product here and there based on personal preference, there's absolutely no room to compromise on these five essentials. So, to make the task of building your own shaving kit much easier, we've put together the following list of items you absolutely need to include in your shopping list. ITEM 1: Razor © Wikimedia Commons It's arguably the most indispensable item in your shaving kit, which is why selecting the best razor for your shaving needs is such an important decision. If you're just starting out with shaving, a cartridge razor would be the best option for you. It's much easier to shave with, and requires a lower initial investment. In contrast, double edge safety razors aren't just pricier, but shaving with them takes more time to master as well. However, the average monthly cost of a safety razor is much lower than cartridge razors thanks to the disposable blades that they come equipped with. Some kits are even designed for straight razors, which might be the instrument of choice for the more experienced shaver. Whatever your choice of blade may be, your shaving kit is incomplete without one. ITEM 2: Lathering Agent © Flickr Once you've picked out your razor, the next step is to find a suitable lathering agent. There are a lot of options in this department as well, ranging from shaving creams and gels, to shaving foams and shaving soaps. A quality lathering agent not only makes for a smooth and comfortable shaving experience, it also provides nourishment to your skin and leaves it refreshed and hydrated after every shave. Sub-standard products cause dry skin, leading to other forms of skin irritation including those annoying rashes, nicks and cuts. A quality shaving cream or gel will help build up a rich and luxuriant lather that is ideal for a long, indulgent shave. If you have a day off and want to devote some time to personal grooming, this is the option to go for. In contrast, the best shaving foams provide a light, airy lather with just a couple of sprays. If you're a man who's constantly on the move, this is what you need to achieve a classy clean-shaven look that's also incredibly low on maintenance. ITEM 3: Shaving Brush © Wikimedia Commons Once you've navigated through the different types of razors and lathering agents out there, the next step is to find the right shaving brush. They build up additional cushioning on your face when using a shaving cream, allowing for a much more comfortable shave. They also help your facial hair stand up on end, making it much easier for the razor to slice through it and provide a closer shave. Natural hair shaving brushes, such as badger, boar, and horse hair, are available at varying price points depending upon how they feel on your face and their lathering capability. As an animal-friendly alternative, you can even opt for synthetic shaving brushes which are soft on your skin while offering great water retention. ITEM 4: Pre-Shave Oil © Flickr If your sensitive skin is regularly left red and raw every time you shave, then the right pre-shave oil or lotion can be a gamechanger for you. These prepare your skin by opening up the pores on your face, helping flush out oil, grime and bacteria that act as blockages. They also help soften the otherwise bristly and wiry facial hair, helping the razor glide effortlessly over the contours of your face and offering a much more pleasant shave every time. This minimises the risk of post-shave skin irritation, rashes and cuts, improving your overall skin health and enhancing your appearance. ITEM 5: Aftershave Lotion/Balm © Pixabay Another essential item in all the best shaving kits is a quality post-shave product that ensures your skin is taken care of. We've all grown up seeing our fathers finish off their shaves with a quick splash of aftershave lotion, and sneakily applied a bit ourselves to savour its subtle sting and heady scent. However, almost all of these lotions contain some form of alcohol, which is a great antiseptic but also dries your skin out. If you're not keen on experiencing that all-too-familiar sting after every shave, a quality alcohol-free aftershave balm keeps your pores clean while also ensuring that your skin stays moisturised and healthy. Bonus Add-Ons: © Shutterstock 1) Shaving Stand The perfect add-on to your shaving kit, a shaving stand is not only practical, but also aesthetically pleasing. Even though it doesn't contribute to your shaving routine, it adds an element of class and elegance as you display your shaving supplies in your bathroom. It's also a great way to dry out your razor and brush, protecting them from oxidation and bacteria. 2) Replacement Blades Picking out the best safety razor or the perfect cartridge razor is pointless if you don't have replacement blades to turn to once these lose their edge. There are a number of quality blades that fit safety razors which you can stock up on without fear of rust. Similarly, having a couple of replacements for your cartridge razor handy will help you keep up with your shaving regime at all times. 3) Shaving Bowl Although these aren't very high on the priority list, a dedicated shaving bowl helps whip up a nice foamy lather, acts as a resting place for your brush, and lends a professional touch to your shaving kit. 4) Travel Bag If your work requires you to keep traveling from place to place while also maintaining a clean-shaven visage, then you need to invest in a sturdy case which can fit all your shaving gear. When choosing from the best travel kits for men who are constantly on the go, there's a wide variety of great options that will keep you from falling behind on your shaving routine even when you're on the move. 5) Electric Trimmer/Scissors Just because you're not completely clean shaven doesn't mean you don't need to maintain a shaving kit! Even the most hirsute of men need shaving supplies and regular maintenance to keep their facial hair well-groomed. Whether it's keeping a bushy beard in check or trimming around the lines of a trim moustache, a pair of scissors or an electric trimmer helps you maintain that rugged look by allowing you to groom your hair with extreme precision.
  18. One of the better football clubs in the history of the sport, with a massive following of diehard fans who take their game very seriously, Real Madrid have found themselves to be in a bit of a slump ever since Portuguese fame Cristiano Ronaldo decided to say goodbye to the Spanish club to play in Italy for Juventus back in July 2018 for a massive €100 million contract. Ronaldo's move followed his then manager Zinedine Zidane's decision to quit the team last year. Ever since, the management of Los Blancos has shifted thrice in less than a year. First was Julen Lopetegui, who was brought as a compensating replacement of the French superstar but was quickly fired after Lionel Messi's Barcelona defeated them in a humiliating 'El Clasico' match up. Next came Santiago Solari, the pride of Argentine football under whose interim reign, Real Madrid saw very little to no improvement. They crashed out of Copa del Rey and lost all hopes of winning the UEFA Champions League for the fourth consecutive time after a depressing 1-4 loss to Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) in the Round of 16. Now that Florentino Pérez, Real Madrid President, has decided to bring Zidane back to Santiago Bernabeu while letting go of his disagreement with the Frenchman, the franchise hopes to bring back its glory days. But, the real question is, will Zidane be able to help Los Blancos become the entity they used to be during the 'Ronaldo Era' without Ronaldo? Till now, the experiments Lopetegui and Solari tried, all of them crashed and burned while the club continued to spiral. On the other hand, the man that Madrid fans put their trust into in the absence of Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, has not only failed to step into the Portuguese's shoes but has also made no improvements to his game like he said he would if CR7 wasn't there. The fans of the club feel the same way as they took to Twitter to show their concerns about Zindane's success without Cristiano Ronaldo: I want to see if Zidane was the one who lead Real to fame or was it Cristiano Ronaldo all a long pic.twitter.com/WiJn0P8ukA — Will ™ ð¬ð§âï¸ (@ftblWilll) March 11, 2019 He is back, but can Zidane do it without superstar Ronaldo at Real Madrid pic.twitter.com/ruNjR5tba6 — BrandonKB (@chiseledout) March 12, 2019 Zidane's tactics without Ronaldo pic.twitter.com/yfKMPGan0A — Juanito Lucha Libre (@FrankSno9) March 11, 2019 Zidane's tactics without Ronaldo pic.twitter.com/yfKMPGan0A — Juanito Lucha Libre (@FrankSno9) March 11, 2019 Is it just me who thinks that Zidane coming back to Real won't change anything.

  19. I don't know exactly when this meme started, but I'm so on board with the entire 'spoiler without context' thing. It's so simple and genius, if you've seen the movie, you'll get the joke and that's fun and if you haven't yet watched a certain movie, congrats nothing is getting spoiled! I think the first time I saw the movie spoiler without context tweets, was right after the release of 'Avengers: Infinity War' and since then I've seen more and more people tweet this for different movies. Along with 'Infinity War', we've seen some hilarious spoilers for movies like 'Deadpool 2' and 'Antman And The Wasp'. Now, another Marvel movie is all set to join the list. Yes, 'Captain Marvel' basically just released and well, a lot of people still have to watch it, but you know that Twitter works fast. There are already a bunch of spoilers without context floating around the website and they're hilarious.

  22. Do you like the thought of switching to organic products, but think it's way too expensive? You're not alone. I think money is the main reason that a lot of people are hesitant to make the switch. I like to think of it as investing in your health vs buying expensive products off the rack, but not everyone shares this point of view. So, I'm here to share with you some ways that you can make the switch without breaking the bank. Break The Routine Pexels Most people I meet are already set in routines, have already established shopping habits, and already have lives that demand a lot of their time. They care, but they don't have the time or energy to do all the research all of the time, or to try and consider every single intersecting factor that can affect whether we call something ethical, sustainable or organic. Break this routine. Don't Make The Switch Overnight Pexels This is so important. Once you start learning about chemicals and toxic ingredients, it's hard not to want to swap everything ASAP. But don't feel like you need to do this all at once. Start small. If you're having trouble prioritizing what to replace, start with the products that you use the most, such as food. Or, ditch the products that are the most toxic first. Find A Middle Ground Pexels There are different levels of organic and handmade. There are your conventional, cheap, toxic products. Then there are products that are so-so and have good ingredients as well as some bad ingredients. Then there are your SUPER pure products but are on the expensive end. Find a middle ground. Look for products that will satiate your need of being healthy but are inexpensive too. Change Your Point of View Pexels I know you don't want to hear this, but consider changing your P.O.V. when it comes to organic products. (Okay, you're probably rolling your eyes at me now. But bear with me!) If you do enough research you'll find that products that are organic can also be easy on the pocket. Especially on a website like Qtrove.com, where you find an amazing range of natural, organic and handmade products- gourmet food, home decor, beverages, kitchen essentials, and grooming products and more! Look For Deals Pexels Deals are everywhere, you just have to look. Looking at a certain product? Sign up for that brand's newsletter and wait for a sale or promo code. Shop on sites that carry multiple brands such as Qtrove.com. If you pay using your PayTM wallet, you will get 10% cashback up to Rs 100! Do good research and look for more deals and promo codes. I am sure you'll be glad you did. Let us know if this helped you in the comments.
  23. Any man knows that the mark of a true gentleman lies in his ability to suit up. Trust us, nothing looks classier than a man in a well-tailored suit. With the up and coming trends of styling suits in numerous ways and mixing it up with athleisure and business casual attire, there still remain a few things that should be left the way they are when it comes to men's fashion. Tailoring is the most adaptable piece of clothing a man can own. To get more wear out of your true business attire, the easiest and most effective move would be to lose the tie. Here are 5 ways to wear a suit without a tie and still look dapper: 1. Go for a collarless shirt © Instagram/ishabhansali Opting for a shirt that prevents you to wear a tie in the first place is possibly the best solution to your problems. Also known as the stand collar shirt, a collarless shirt adds finesse and provides a clean look without the choke of the necktie. A simple white or light blue shirt would be ideal for an update your tailored suit needs. 2. Trade the shirt for a polo © Instagram/ishabhansali To dial the tone on formality, opt for a polo tee instead of a shirt. This style retains the collar effect to make you look put together but oozes chill vibes as well making the look semi-casual. Keeping the footwear casual and accessories as minimal as possible is suggested. You can either button the polo tee up or rock an open collar depending upon the occasion. 3. Go for the classic open collar © Instagram/ishabhansali Slogging all day at the office can make your necktie feel like a noose. The best way to let it go is to open the collar for good. A simple move can make ample difference when it comes to the look and feel of the outfit. Just open the top button of your shirt and let loose. One can go from business meeting to cocktail party ready in the matter of seconds. 4. Camp collar all the way © Instagram/ishabhansali If you're a fan of the 70s fashion and want to embrace your inner OG Don, go for a camp collar. Also known as the Cuban collar, pair this shirt with earthy tones of brown, khaki and beige. This style will give you a relaxed appearance but still make you look refined. A beige suit is ideal to pair a printed shirt with. 5. A fast track button up © Instagram/ishabhansali The quickest way to look polished sans tie is to don a dress shirt in a classic button-up manner. To carry a buttoned up shirt without looking like a school kid, go for slim fit tailoring for a sharp look. For the perfect business casual style, opt for printed shirts with a neutral colored suit and loafers or derby shoes. Adapt these styling tips and they're sure to make you ditch the dreaded tie once every while and still look as debonair.
  24. It has become very common for all gym bros to take some kind of muscle building 'pills' or 'injections' these days to build muscle. Along with that, horror stories of people dying due to taking bodybuilding drugs, suffering from serious health risks, addiction, and depression frequent the news. They do build impressive physiques by taking these pills and injecting hard to pronounce compounds in their asses. Does this mean you cannot build muscle without taking these drugs? The answer would be NO. The problem with most natural lifters is that they try to imitate drugged or enhanced bodybuilders. It is like going to play cricket with a hockey stick. It is not a different level, it is a different game. How many sixes would you score even if you were the best batsman with the hockey stick? Here is what you can start doing if you are serious about gaining muscle naturally: 1. Increase Your Frequency And Divorce The Bro-Split One muscle group, once a week?! Yes, forget about that. When a person takes steroids, their Muscle Protein Synthesis shoots up for almost a week. Meaning, if they train chest on Monday, they will be repairing and building that tissue until Sunday. On Monday, they repeat again. You, a natural lifter, on the other hand, will have this elevated Muscle Protein Synthesis for 24 to 48 hours max. If you train your chest just once in a week, you will have a window where you are not making any gains for your chest. That is where you lose out on gains. If you want to avoid this, stop having a one muscle per day workout plan. Train all your muscle groups 2 to 3 times per week. 2. Do More Of Compound Exercises It's really cool to see bodybuilders have that pump and then do 20 sets of arms in one session. The fun fact here is that they can recover from these crazy high volumes due to the usage of anabolic steroids. There is nothing wrong with doing isolation exercises like above. Do your bicep curls too. But, not at the cost of compound exercises! To grow muscle, you need to get stronger aka need to have progressive overload. When you start going to the gym, you may be able to curl dumbbells of 7.5 kilos. Over time or say a period of 10 years, this will maximum reach 25 kilos. You did become stronger but the number is not a crazy increase. Let's compare that with a bench press. You start at 20 kilos. Over 10 years, this number can even go up to 120 kilos. That is a 100-kilo increase. You can overload muscle more and get stronger more in your compound exercises. Add to that, these exercises work more than just one muscle group per given time. This helps you save time too. 3. Eat In A Calorie Surplus To gain muscle, you need to eat in a calorie surplus. You cannot lose weight and gain muscle at the same time unless you are a beginner. A lot of bros waste their time trying to recomp or build muscle and lose fat at the same time. It is like two steps forward, one step back. Instead, just focus on one thing at a given time and prioritizing it. So yeah, if you think that you cannot build muscle naturally, that is a wrong notion. It is just that you have been doing things sub-optimally.

  25. Looking back, I remember, I led a very unhealthy lifestyle and had ballooned up to an alarming 100kgs. This was the number one reason why I started to work out and going to the gym, as I was apprehensive about what could happen to me, health-wise. Making a drastic change in my lifestyle and eating habits, when everyone around me was partying and eating junk, was a big U-turn for me. But now, I am glad that I did it. When I started working out, I was told a lot of misleading things. "Don't eat this, take this supplement, eat fat burners, and purchase a mass gainer" and what not. A lot of wrong info came my way without any filter, which led me to be utterly confused and not knowing where to begin. Then came a turning point in my life, as I joined Get Set Go and decide to train under the guidance of coach and co-founder Pratik Thakkar. He helped me in achieving the kind of body I wanted for the past 7 years. He got me there in 6 months and that too, without any useless supplements. He worked on my diet and workout plans and I dedicatedly followed through. Eventually, I got in such good shape that people thought that I was on steroids. The only supplements used through my journey were Whey and Creatine Monohydrate. My training was everywhere. I was doing bro-splits and working out almost every day. This led to poor recovery and poor muscle growth. Pratik then flipped my training around and focused more on recovery and drove me away from the bro-split. My training mostly comprised of push-pull and legs and arms. In time, my volume dropped as well and I was not doing a million reps now either. This brought about the biggest change in my physique. I am now stronger than when I started, my form is way much better and I train intelligently. I don't feel beat up and swiftly get through my schedule. Fitness is about striking a good balance between diet, training and your lifestyle. Be regular, don't cheat and most importantly, get a coach to take care of things that you most certainly can't.
