'GOT' Season 8 Premiere Was Pirated Over 54 Million Times In 24 Hours & Most Views Came From India

Game of Thrones season 8 premiere was the show's most-watched episode ever. That's right, it was watched by a record 17.4 million viewers when it aired. But you know what? That number could have been much higher if more people would have watched it, you know, legally. According to a digital-piracy analytics company Muso, the “Winterfell” episode was pirated 54 million times globally in just 24 hours. The pirated views easily dwarfs the legal views that came on the day it was aired. Of course, the number will likely go up in the coming days as more people start watching it, but so will the pirated views. © HBO MUSO's data also shows that the most pirated views came from India. Roughly 10 million views out of the estimated 54 million came from India. MUSO speculates that the piracy in India was higher due to the difficulty of accessing the show there. China, on the other hand, airs a censored version of the show, so 5 million pirated views came from there too. United States, despite having the easiest access to the show via HBO, came third in charts with close to 4 million illegal views. So yes, it looks like people are not ready to pay to watch 'Game of Thrones' after all. Anyway, the next episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 airs Monday, April 22 at 6.30 AM on Hotstar in India. So, you still have some time to catch up if you haven't already.

Shots Fired: Pragyan Ojha Calls Bias Against Hyderabad Cricketers As Rayudu Dropped From WC Team

To quote one of the most questioned players to make it to the final Indian roster for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in Dinesh Karthik, “There will always be someone who will miss out. That's the nature of the game…”, and surely enough, with the total number of slots at 15 and over 25 supremely talented players competing for them, it is bound to happen that some players would miss out on the opportunity to represent their country in the biggest cricketing tournament there is.  One of the best (or worst?) examples of such a case is that of the 21-year-old wicket-keeper-batsman, Rishabh Pant, who missed out on the opportunity to a veteran like Karthik, who's considered to bring greater stability and consistency to the already talent-laden squad.  On the other hand is the curious case of the 33-year-old Ambati Rayudu who initially was brought up to the team as a batting all-rounder who'd fit perfectly in the two-down spot for the Men in Blue. However, with his questionable bowling action being rejected by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and he batting form spiralling, the Guntur born had to be removed from the final team ahead of the World Cup. Unable to take the news like a good sportsman that he is, Rayudu took a sly shot at the selectors and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) by tweeting this:  Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup ðð.. — Ambati Rayudu (@RayuduAmbati) April 16, 2019 Losing his spot to Vijay Shankar, who made his ODI debut just a couple of months ago in January, Rayudu said that he's just ordered a pair of 3-D glasses to watch the World Cup. This was in reference to team selector MSK Prasad, who'd called Shankar a three-dimensional player. Responding to the tweet in support was yet another Indian cricketer who was put on the spot by the ICC for an objectionable bowling action and had to revamp the very essential part of his game, Pragyan Ojha. Curious case of some Hyderabadi cricketers... been in a similar situation... understand the winkâð¼ https://t.co/zLtAQIMvYn — Pragyan Prayas Ojha (@pragyanojha) April 16, 2019 “Curious case of some Hyderabadi cricketers... been in a similar situation... understand the wink”, tweeted the former Indian cricketer. Taking his own example after having missed out on the opportunity to play for his country in the 2015 World Cup, Ojha pointed out that being dropped from the team ahead of crucial games is evident for “some Hyderabadi cricketers”.  However, his dig at the selectors did not sit well with the fans of Indian cricket:  Isn't that why u were supporting him the day before selections? I hAvE gRoWn Up WiTh HiM. Pot calling Kettle black. Instead of whining over selections & talking nonsense filth to divide fans, support the ones who are selected, doesn't matter from which part of India they are from — Saurabh (@imsgshinde2) April 16, 2019 Aur ye Pragyan behati Ganga me haath dhote huye. — Ghenchebaaz (@MVBisht) April 16, 2019 Don't bring state into play.... He was given enough opportunity to perform. Though feel bad for him, but the call was justified on the back of past performance. — Gareeb Joker (@badoombaa) April 16, 2019 You wer dropd frm d team whn ther wer better spinners in d country. If it's a case of Hyderabadi cricketer, thn Laxman and Azruddin wouldnt hav played around 100 tests. Skill matters bhai which many others hav more than u guys. Raydu doesn't deserve a place in India A team also. — dryogeshpatel (@dryogiap) April 17, 2019 Hey Mr. Ojha, don't pull cricket into regional colors! — à¤à¥à¤à¥à¤¦à¤¾à¤° Aciditic Indian ð®ð³ ð®ð³ (@Aciditic_Indian) April 16, 2019

'PM Narendra Modi' Trailer Is Missing From YouTube & We Can Already Hear Vivek Oberoi's Fans Cry

A few days ago, technically one day before Vivek Oberoi's movie 'PM Narendra Modi' was going to release, the Election Commission put a ban on the film until the Lok Sabha elections are over. According to the order issued by the EC, "any Biopic material in nature of biography sub serving the purpose of any political entity or any individual entity connected to it, which has the potential to disturb level-playing field during the election, should not be displayed in Electronic media including cinematograph during the operation of Model Code of Conduct." © Instagram Fast forward to the present time and the trailer of the film, which is an "inspiring saga of a man, a politician, a leader and a visionary", has gone missing from YouTube.  The movie was already drowning in a pool of controversy thanks to the ban and memes, and now the disappearance of the trailer took away the last straw from the makers of the film.  View this post on Instagram Jai Hind ð®ð³ð We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. #AkhandBharat #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Jan 7, 2019 at 5:59am PST No matter how much people joke about the trailer or Vivek Oberoi's looks and performance, but a trailer or any video for that matter going off YouTube is a major blow and we don't how the cast and the crew of the film is going to deal with this new development.   View this post on Instagram Thank you to each and every one of you for your blessings, love and support. Thank you to the Indian Judiciary. We hope you like the film and that it inspires you all! #PMNarendraModi ð Jai Hind ð®ð³ @omungkumar @officialsandipssingh @oberoi_suresh @anandpandit @tseries.official A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Apr 5, 2019 at 7:15am PDT Apparently, not just YouTube, the official trailer has been removed from most other platforms as well. All it shows is, "The video is unavailable." According to reports, this move might be related to the order of EC.  View this post on Instagram 2 days to go! Thursday 11th April! #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Apr 9, 2019 at 12:51am PDT So, in case you missed out on the trailer, looks like you won't be able to see it on the internet anytime soon. Directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sandip Singh, 'PM Narendra Modi' was initially supposed to release on April 11, but has now been pushed for a later date.

As TikTok Disappears From Google & Apple Stores These Weird AF Videos Prove Why It's For The Best

The very popular, albeit annoying to the level of self-destruction, Chinese video making application TikTok has been finally taken down from Google and Apple app stores in India. The (awesome) news comes after the Madras High Court prohibited its downloads on 3rd April. Now, following the direction of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the app has been temporarily banned in the country. © Twitter The popular app which was actively used by millions of Indians to create short videos was said to contain “inappropriate content”, in a petition filed by senior advocate S Muthukumar. He further stated that children using the app were vulnerable to potential paedophiles using the application, and sought an immediate ban on the use of TikTok. © Justdial While there is strong merit in those allegations, we must recall that Indonesia also temporarily blocked TikTok last year, saying that it contained pornography and blasphemous content. Perhaps it is really time for TikTok to take a step back and think about regulating its content and privacy/security details. View this post on Instagram Comments how that vedio you like or not ???

So, true to that data, imagine the insane amount of video “content” that is being churned out on the platform on a daily basis. While some can be genuinely fun to look at (only once in a while), most other videos are pure torture to the beholder. While this news must be heart-breaking for Indian TikTok 'stars', the following cringey videos are all the proof we need that the ban is in all of our best interest. What did we just see?!

Madhuri Dixit Singing 'Tabah Hogaye' Explains The Audience's Reaction After Watching 'Kalank'

Karan Johar's magnum opus ' Kalank' opened today and while the movie looked like a beautiful, aesthetic (but heavily inspired from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's works) watch, the majority of the reaction from the audience today has been quite 'meh'. Kalank review  -
story - fully bakwas,
screenplay - dull,
music - routine
Overall not worth watching @karanjohar â­ star... — Pooja singh (@filmireviewji) April 15, 2019 #Kalank Review : Headache Guranteed.. So instead of buying popcorn.. Buy Amrutanjan or Zandu Balm.. Hackneyed Plot.. Worse acting.. @aliaa08  Constipated... @MadhuriDixit Old Haggered... @duttsanjay Buffoon... @Varun_dvn only Body No Soul... @sonakshisinha Khaaaaamoooosshhhhhhhhh — Ganesh Mahesh (@NamoIn2019) April 16, 2019 Many are upset that the narrative was a concept stolen from SLB's style and reworked in a weird manner with a good star cast. #KalankReview :
They tried to imitate #SLB's scale and vision and believe me they were spot on visualy but where's the writing man?.Screenplay lethargic and drowsy , waited eagerly for an engaging moment but not a single engrossing pal , while same old formula to sell .(1/2) . — Rahul verma (@RahulVerma4860) April 17, 2019 Words for #Kalank #KalankReview

Kalank is a Perfect Example that High BUDGET, Multi Starcast, Massive Sets and Wide Release will nvr ensure Success, if your FILM LACK SOUL
Kalank = GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY WASTED

D*I*S*S*A*P*O*I*N*T*I*N*G

1.5*/5 #VarunDhawan #AliaBhatt — Rohit Jaiswal (@rohitjswl01) April 17, 2019 Pic 1: Expectation
Pic 2: Reality#KalankReview pic.twitter.com/gQey2wYZHM — Satyam Singh (@MyFreakyTweets) April 17, 2019 However, some people are loving the movie for some particular elements. A few people loved it for the cinematography and the plot, while for others, watching the beautiful Madhuri Dixit on screen was reason enough. Jus saw #Kalank at d screening in  presence of the cast. One more reason to watch it is for @MadhuriDixit
And the grace she brings to celluloid. Her scene with @duttsanjay
N @Varun_dvn is epic. The bollywood masala movie buffs will love it #kalankreview pic.twitter.com/zoSwUDhjB0 — KARAN SINGH CHHABRA (@karan_chhabra) April 16, 2019 Jus saw #Kalank with d cast. Loved it for 1. The grandeur 2. The dialogues and story 3. The way actors of such stature hav been presented 
Otherwise:
4. Length could hav been shorter
5. Songs could have been bettr

The bollywood masala movie buffs will love it #kalankreview pic.twitter.com/lZzmSj5Mug — KARAN SINGH CHHABRA (@karan_chhabra) April 16, 2019 Don't believe the negative reviews. Kalank is like Game of Thrones and Avengers Endgame. Please watch it in theaters ð#KalankReview — Varunardo DiCaprio (@Varunardo) April 17, 2019 Nevertheless, if a good cinematic view and watching your favourite stars are good enough reasons for you to watch 'Kalank', then you should catch it soon.

Russo Brothers & The Cast Of 'Endgame' Are Reminding People That Thanos Still Demands Their Silence

'Say no to spoilers' – it's not a hard concept to understand. But, some people have a hard time grasping this and they don't realize how much the spoilers of a movie or a TV show can affect someone, especially if they have been waiting for a really long time to watch it. The entire spoiler debate going on right now is obviously because of 'Avengers: Endgame' - only 9 days to go! - and I still can't believe there are some sadistic people who would spoil things for others.  There are so many loyal fans and followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who want to and who deserve to watch the biggest Marvel movie yet without any interference. But, it can get so out of hand that the Russo Brothers had to come out and release another PSA just to plead with people. #DontSpoilTheEndgame pic.twitter.com/YZhbrwcijJ — Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 16, 2019 Yes, I hate the giant purple grape and his stupid narrow way of thinking, but for once we should listen to him when he demands our silence. Be a good person, don't make fans have meltdowns and keep the spoilers to yourself. Be like Cap. But not us #WhateveritTakes #DontSpoilTheEndgame pic.twitter.com/KDKxFxl2dM — Danna Sofía (@DSofi427) April 16, 2019 Be like Dr Strange. pic.twitter.com/gPfbjD4xw9 — Tommy (@TommyWitney) April 16, 2019 Good joke. when someone spoils endgame pic.twitter.com/0rzbhGQ0D5 — dustin (@asvpxdusty) April 16, 2019 This is probably why Spiderman was killed off in 'Infinity War'. :) pic.twitter.com/i7b1w3aIt2 — Iván Gutiérrez (@ivandecat05) April 16, 2019 While this letter is good, nothing can beat last year's PSA about spoilers for 'Avengers: Infinity War'.  I'm kind of sad we don't have Tom Holland with tape on his mouth this time. © Marvel

Indians Now Hold The World Record For Spending The Highest Amount Of Time On Social Media

As smartphones and mobile data have become both cheaper and faster, Indians have started chugging data like never before. From watching Netflix in public to churning out TikTok videos, there's an influx in internet usage in the past few years. Now according to McKinsey's latest report on Indian online trends, Indians are spending the highest amount of time on social media in the world. Yes, in the WORLD!  © McKinsey The report noted that Indians spend more time on social media than online users in China or the US. Apparently, Indians are spending about 17 hours per week on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others. It's a world record, which we think, has been set due to access to affordable smartphones and cheap cellular data (read: Jio) . India is also just behind China when it comes to app downloads. As you can see in the report, over 12.3 billion smartphone apps have been downloaded by Indians in 2018. © Pexels After Indonesia, India is said to be digitizing faster than every other mature and emerging economy across 30 dimensions of digital adoption since 2014. McKinsey's report is extremely detailed, and it talks about a lot of other accomplishments of India in the digital space. Check out McKinsey's report right here.

آنکھ میں خواب نہیں

آنکھ میں خواب نہیں آنکھ میں خواب نہیں خواب کا ثانی بھی نہیں
کنج لب میں کوئی پہلی سی کہانی بھی نہیں

ڈھونڈھتا پھرتا ہوں اک شہر تخیل میں تجھے
اور مرے پاس ترے گھر کی نشانی بھی نہیں

بات جو دل میں دھڑکتی ہے محبت کی طرح
اس سے کہنی بھی نہیں اس سے چھپانی بھی نہیں

آنکھ بھر نیند میں کیا خواب سمیٹیں کہ ابھی
چاندنی رات نہیں رات کی رانی بھی نہیں

لیلی حسن ذرا دیکھ ترے دشت نژاد
سر بسر خاک ہیں اور خاک اڑانی بھی نہیں

کچے ایندھن میں سلگنا ہے اور اس شرط کے ساتھ
تیز کرنی بھی نہیں آگ بجھانی بھی نہیں

اب تو یوں ہے کہ ترے ہجر میں رونے کے لئے
آنکھ میں خون تو کیا خون سا پانی بھی نہیں

یہ ہے مے کدہ یہاں رند ہیں

یہ ہے مے کدہ یہاں رند ہیں یہاں سب کا ساقی امام ہے
یہ حرم نہیں ہے اے شیخ جی یہاں پارسائی حرام ہے
جو ذرا سی پی کے بہک گیا اسے میکدے سے نکال دو
یہاں تنگ نظر کا گزر نہیں یہاں اہل ظرف کا کام ہے
کوئی مست ہے کوئی تشنہ لب تو کسی کے ہاتھ میں جام ہے
مگر اس پہ کوئی کرے بھی کیا یہ تو میکدے کا نظام ہے
یہ جناب شیخ کا فلسفہ ہے عجیب سارے جہان سے
جو وہاں پیو تو حلال ہے جو یہاں پیو تو حرام ہے
اسی کائنات میں اے جگرؔ کوئی انقلاب اٹھے گا پھر
کہ بلند ہو کے بھی آدمی ابھی خواہشوں کا غلام ہے
جگر مراد آبادی

اے خُدا معذرت

اے خُدا معذرت مَیں جہاں تھا وہیں رہ گیا، معذرت
اے زمیں معذرت ! اے خُدا معذرت

کچھ بتاتے ھوئے، کچھ چُھپاتے ھوئے
مَیں ھَنسا، معذرت ! رُو دیا، معذرت

خُود تمھاری جگہ جا کے دیکھا ھے اور
خُود سے کی ھے تمھاری جگہ معذرت

جو ھوا، جانے کیسے ھوا، کیا خبر
ایک دن مَیں نے خود سے کہا، معذرت

ھم سے گِریہ مکمل نہیں ھو سکا
ھم نے دیوار پر لکھ دِیا، معذرت

دکھ

دکھ
کہتا ہے ایک دن مجھ سے
بڑا دکھ ہے مجھے
میں نے پوچھا
کس بات کا دکھ؟
کہتا ہے بس کچھ ہے
میں نے پوچھا
کھانا پیٹ بھر کر کھاتے ہو؟
کہتا ہے ہاں
پھر پوچھا
کوئی بیماری تو نہیں؟
کہتا ہے نہیں
پھر پوچھا اعضاء سلامت ہیں؟
کہتا ہے ہاں
سر پہ چھت ہے؟
کہتا ہے ہاں
پھر میں لے گئی اس کو ایک ایسی جگہ
جہاں قحط تھا
بچوں کے جسم لباس سے عاری
اور پیٹ اناج سے خالی
سونے کو چھت نہیں
نہ سردی کی لذت
نہ گرمی کی ہیبت
احساس جیسے باقی ہی نہ رہے
ایک اور ایسی جگہ
جہاں زندگی ایک جرم تھی
روز لاشیں گرتیں
عزتیں پامال ہوتیں
ظلم اپنی انتہا پہ
جہاں آتی جاتی سانسوں پہ بھی
شکر تھا کہ سلامت ہیں
پھر میں نے پوچھا
اب بتاؤ کوئی دکھ ہے باقی؟
کہتا ہے نہیں مجھے تو دکھ کے معنی
آج سمجھ آئے ہیں

Jon Snow's Style Evolution Through The 7 'GOT' Seasons Is The Glow-up We All Want In Our Lives

'Game Of Thrones' first premiered on 17 April 2011. The season 8 (beginning of the end) of the show is premiering on 15 April which is right here. But looking back to the first season, we realise that all these actors were babies when they started out.  Jon Snow, or Kit Harington, has now taken major spotlight in Hollywood. We will see the last few episodes of 'Game Of Thrones' in just a few days. We don't know if he'll survive or not, but we hope he does. But before that, let's step back and appreciate Kit for all these years of hard work. Clearly, his style has evolved, and how! Here's Kit through the years parallel to the production of GOT. 1. 2011 In 2011, we saw a young Kit sans beard. He's clearly become a mature version of himself now. © Reuters © Reuters 2. 2012 Jon Snow had only started to become popular and teens would use pictures like these for posters in their room. © Reuters 3. 2013 Balancing a fine stubble is tough. Here is Jon Snow pulling it off casually. © Reuters 4. 2014 A scarf with a coat is an underappreciated Winter style that men should wear more often. © Reuters 5. 2015 A classic two-piece with a black tie can never go wrong, courtesy Kit. © Reuters 6. 2016 Using black on black to his advantage again, here is Kit with a black bow tie that complements his outfit seamlessly. © Reuters 7. 2017 Here's the thing: a blazer can be worn casually without it looking extra, and here's proof. © Reuters 8. 2018 While we think that this is a stellar outfit, we hope to see Kit try and embrace other colors like yellow. What do you think? © Reuters 9. 2019 Kit Harington at the premiere of 'GOT' in 2019. He is going to move on from his Jon Snow appeal and we'll miss this aesthetic. © Reuters

10 Popular Bollywood Songs Which Turn 10-Years-Old In 2019 & We're Feeling Oh-So-Old Now

Music is one of the greatest markers of any civilisation. It grows, changes and evolves into something entirely different at the turn of every decade that comes to a close. Every new beginning welcomes new changes to the realm of music and the end result leaves a lasting impression on our minds. Yet, even with the constant evolution that music undergoes from time to time, certain compositions simply strike a chord and stick with us. Why? Maybe because the beats were catchy, or the film was one of your favourites from that year, or simply because the music got under your skin for no particular reason. But what we can't deny is the fact that even after so many years since the first time we heard those songs, we love them just as much even after a gap of 10 long years. We list down 10 such uber popular Bollywood songs from 2009 that were crazy hits and will soon be completing 10 years. So get ready to feel really old and find some of your favourite tracks on this list here, because frankly, we didn't see this coming. 1. Emotional Attyachaar (Dev.D) The absolute upheaval that this composition caused to the music charts in 2009 doesn't need much recollection. Emotional Attyachaar from 'Dev.D' came handy during so many situations besides a heartbreak, it quickly became a classic. 2. Dhan Te Nan (Kaminey) One of Vishal Bharadwaj's best compositions, this was from Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kaminey' was played at every house party and discotheque with equal enthusiasm. Edgy and entertaining, with high-rolling beats this one kept everyone pumped. 3. Tera Hone Laga Hoon (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani) This song from 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif sort of became the romance anthem of the year. Well, what can we say, guys took to it pretty quickly. 4. Iktara (Wake Up Sid) This one was a popular choice not only then, but even to this day, as we can find this song in a lot of people's playlist. And when we say a lot, we mean it. This soulful song not only fetched the singer the best playback singer award but also became a major hit. 5. Chiggy Wiggy (Blue) Even though 'Blue' tanked at the box office big time, this song was a major crowd-puller in 2009 because it saw Australian-British pop star, Kylie Minogue's first ever Bollywood collaboration. Apart from the song and music, those moves Kylie pulled off with Akshay Kumar were too good! 6. All Izz Well (3 Idiots) This one doesn't need any introduction for obvious reasons. This became a raging anthem with the younger lot of the time, and still continues to be a very popular number even after 10 years since it first came out. 7. Genda Phool (Delhi-6) Ask your mother and you will know exactly how much every mother and aunt in the country came to love this song, and relate to some or the other part of it. Regardless, there is no denying this was a popular number in 2009. 8. Paisa Paisa (De Dana Dan) The lyrics of this one, as well as Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif grooving to this song, got to the guys. If you haven't heard this one, you better. Then you will know exactly why. 9. Hai Junoon (New York) This one was meant for the squad and everybody appreciated it. People instantly connected to it because it reminded them of their friends and that is always a winner! 10. Twist (Love Aaj Kal) If you didn't dance to this one at least at five different parties, then did you even have any fun in 2009? This one took all the parties and dance sessions by storm!

'Stability, Balance & A Good Wife', AB de Villiers Explains The Reasons For Virat Kohli's Success

The curse is finally over, ladies and gentleman! Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have finally won their first IPL match of the twelfth season and looked really good while doing so, too.  After Ravichandran Ashwin's King XI Punjab (KXIP) set a respectable total of 173 on their home ground at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali, behind an excellent knock played by Chris 'Universe Boss' Gayle (99 not out), it was time for Kohli and gang to try and chase it down.  RCB openers AB de Villiers and Kohli, himself, walked down to the pitch with an aggressive mindset from the beginning and managed to keep the assertion alive for the better half of the second innings, which helped the 'Play Bold' army seal the deal in the final overs.  Forming yet another successful partnership, Kohli (67 off 53) and de Villiers (59 not out) were finally able to help the team “cross that line” as the skipper mentioned in an interview after the match.  In a different feature video uploaded on the Indian Premier League's official website, it was the South African who held the microphone for the Indian captain for a brief Q&A during which de Villiers asked Kohli about the reasons behind the 30-year-old is.  AB's kids knock Anushka and Virat's door at the hotel every morning to wake them up and wish them good morning.

"The best thing that has happened to me is me getting married", Virat got me gushing over them again.

'Stability, balance & good wives' https://t.co/T03I8FnjT6 — m (@Manasa2922x) April 14, 2019 “I think over the last year or so, the best thing to have happened to me is me getting married. It has literally changed my whole world,” he said. “I have the most beautiful wife, the most beautiful person and that has been the strongest factor in my life.” “It has changed the way I was before, I was too intense in life but she always keeps me motivated and positive,” Kohli showed appreciation towards Anushka Sharma.  “I could not have been luckier to have someone who understands my mindset being in that position herself.”  “'Stability, balance and a good wife' is a good life,” said the former Proteas leader in the end.

Here Is Why Omega Supplements Are Not Really Necessary For Your Body

You must have seen people supplementing Omega 3-6-9 in their diet. In this article, we'll first have a comprehensive look at what these fatty acids are and then we will decide if you actually need to take them as a supplement or not. Omega 3 Fatty Acids Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids meaning that your body cannot make them by itself and you need to consume it in your diet. The Three most common types of omega 3 are EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA(Docosahexaenoic acid) and Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Omega-3's are a crucial part of human cell membranes and have a number of other important functions, including: â Increasing good cholesterol which improves heart health by reducing triglycerides and blood pressure. â Omega 3's reduce symptoms of psychotic disorders which improve mental health and reduces symptoms of depression. â Consumption of Omega 3's decreases Liver Fat and helps in weight management. â They improve bone density and helps your body to fight against inflammation. © Getty Images Unfortunately, an average adult's diet lacks in omega 3's. This has also contributed to a rise in various ailments like obesity, diabetes and heart disease in the past decade or two. Good source of omega 3 include, fish, chia seeds, walnuts, flaxseeds etc. Omega 6 Fatty Acids Omega 6 Fatty acids are also essential therefore you need to consume them from your natural diet. These fats are primarily used by the body for energy. Linoleic acid is the most common type of omega 6 fatty acid. Though omega 6's are essential, our diet normally consists of more omega 6's than required.  The recommended ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 is 4:1, while our diet exceeds this ratio manifolds. Since the majority of foods items are cooked in Oils like soyabean oil or sunflower oil, Indians receive more than what is required of this fatty acid. Other sources like Mayonnaise, cashews and walnuts also contain omega 6, therefore there is hardly any individual who does not get enough of this omega acid from his diet. Omega 9 Fatty Acids © Getty Images Omega 9 is non-essential fatty acid meaning your body is capable of producing it by itself. Since they are non-essential there is no adequate intake recommendation for them. Omega 9 are the most abundant fats in the human body. Studies show that consumption of high monounsaturated fats like omega 9, instead of other types of fats could reduce triglycerides levels and bad cholesterol (LDL). Sources of omega 9 are Olive Oil, Cashews, Almonds, Avocado, Peanuts, and Walnuts etc. Do You Really Need To Supplement Them? With the above information, it is quite clear that there's hardly any need to supplement Omega 6 and Omega 9. You just need to supplement Omega 3, that too if you are not able to complete the intake through natural foods. You should always try to consume the fatty acids in the right balance to maintain a healthy life balance.

5 Best Gaming Mice One Can Buy To Slay PC Games Like A Pro

A gaming mouse is easily one of the most recognizable gadgets in the world. From an exaggerated design with sharp corners to flashy RGB lighting, they're distinctly visible. Buying a gaming mouse, however, isn't an easy task. There are tons of factors to consider. Well, don't worry. We've gathered together some of the best gaming mice that are out there. No matter what kind of games you're into, we're sure you'll find the best gaming mouse for your needs here on our list. Logitech G502 Hero © YouTube The Logitech G502 Hero, as you can see, clearly screams gaming from any angle you look at. It's got RGB lighting, a ton of customizable buttons, 1ms latency, a jaw-dropping 16,000 DPI sensor, etc. However, this is one of those gaming mice, which you can comfortably use even when you are not gaming. Yes, it comes with adjustable weights, which you can swap out anytime when you're, say, doing a more casual task like browsing the web. Just like the Logitech G402, this one's also not for users with big hands though. But other than that, the Logitech G502 Hero is extremely popular and it's easily one of the best gaming mice out there. Price: Rs. 4,295 HyperX Pulsefire Surge © YouTube This particular gaming mouse from HyperX, a brand that's known for its headsets and other gaming accessories, is definitely worth considering if you're on the lookout for a new gaming mouse. It's a well-designed mouse that's packed with a ton of awesome features like the 16,000 DPI sensor. As we said in our review, it's very comfortable to use, both while playing games or otherwise. It natively supports Windows shortcuts and comes with cool RGB lighting. Above all, the HyperX Pulsefire Surge is easy on the pocket compared to the ones that cost upwards of Rs. 10,000. Price: Rs. 4,799 Razer Deathadder Elite © YouTube The Razer Deathadder Eite is an all-rounder when it comes to gaming mice. It comes in a simple and fantastic shape that's perfect for all sorts of grips and hand sizes. Be it for playing games, editing photos, or simply browsing the internet, the Razer Deathadder Elite won't let you down. Like, seriously. It uses a 16,000 CPI optical sensor which has 99.4% resolution accuracy and a 450 IPS rating. All the technical terms aside, it just means that this mouse will provide flawless tracking at all times. It also comes with two perfectly placed, generously sized thumb buttons. They prove to be good for all types of grips, be it palm, claw, or tip. Price:  Rs. 3,899 Steelseries Sensei 310 © Steelseries The Steelseries Sensei 310 is an ambidextrous mouse, which means it's good for both left and right-handed users. It's also grippier than most other mice, which is always good for playing games. Just like its predecessor, the Sensei 310 comes with really good sensors, so you don't have to worry about any tracking issues. Since the Sensei 310 is ambidextrous, you'll get a pair of identical thumb buttons on the left and the right. Don't worry though, the shape and size of this particular mouse has been tweaked since the last one to avoid any accidental clicks. Overall, the Steelseries Sensei 310 is a really good small, light and ambidextrous mouse, which you can rely on. Price: 4,599 CORSAIR M65 Pro © YouTube The Corsair M65 Pro is a fantastic mouse for competitive FPS gaming. The highlight of this particular mouse has to be the 'Sniper' button, which essentially lowers the DPI while holding it down. Lower the DPI, the more easily you'll be able to maintain your aim at the target. It's really great for users with a claw grip, but even palm grip users will find it very compelling. The Corsair M65 Pro, just like some other mice in our list, comes with tunable weights, which can be accessed by removing the screws on the bottom.

8 Of The Biggest Betrayals In 'Game Of Thrones' That Literally Shook Us

The final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is coming sooner than we thought after a very tedious and a long wait. While we sure will miss the action and the nail-biting anticipation we have been experiencing through the years, let's look back at the biggest betrayals we witnessed during the course of these seven seasons, which basically just left us shook: 1. The Red Wedding-  Horrific, aesthetically very disturbing and the fact that it was a wedding that turned gory left us gasping for breath.   2. Eddard Stark- Ironically enough, the season began with the Stark patriarch beheading someone and later getting the same fate for himself. It was heartbreaking to see the helpless father being beheaded by the family he thought was his ally.    3. Baelish & Sansa- While Karma came calling for Baelish correctly by the hands of Sansa herself, it was pretty sad when he promises to shield the lost girl and take her home safely but has his own ulterior motives behind the help.    4. Jon Snow And Night Watch- When Olly pushed Jon to his fate, the viewers felt the blow to their heart as well. The finale of season 5 broke hearts of all GOT lovers.    5. Stannis  & Shireen – This betrayal was a low blow, even by GOT standards, as it was darker than we could actually think. Stannis agrees to oblige Mellisandre's wish for a sacrifice and his selfishness for his rule overcomes his love for his own daughter. Very hard to witness this one.    6. Theon & The Starks – When Balon is successful in pitting Theon against Robb, there is no looking back for this traitor. His insecurity takes over the better side of him and you kind of want to just punch him in the face at times.    7.  Shae & Tyrion Lannister- The man who claims to know things and just drink, never saw the betrayal coming from the one woman he loved the most in the world. Shae's ending was kind of fitting, wasn't it?   8. Cersei & The High Sparrow- The High Sparrow lures her into trusting her, but the relationship leads to her own arrest. However, you never mess with this queen. The fate which followed her enemies at High Septon was a visual treat for a Cersei but a complete shocker for us.

Rohit Sharma 'Karate-Kicking' The Ball While Batting Is The Smartest Cricket Shot He's Played

It feels as if Rohit Sharma wanted to make up for the lack of entertainment the supporters of Mumbai Indians had to suffer, when the skipper missed out his first Indian Premier League game in 11 years against Ravichandran Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab due to a leg spasm on Wednesday. Nonetheless, the Indian opening batsman more than repaid his dues in today's game against Ajinkya Rahane's Rajasthan Royals during which he played a decent knock, making 47 runs off 32 deliveries, which included six fours and a solitary six, even though the Royals managed to win by four wickets and three spare deliveries. However, the greatest moment of the cricketer's innings came an over ahead of the delivery that dismissed him and ironically enough, the batsman's highlight had nothing to do with his bat. Walking down the pitch to try and hit a longer shot, Sharma was surprised by a full-toss by RR all-rounder K Gowtham going away from him to the left. Out of the crease by a good margin, the delivery would have definitely led to keeper Sanju Samson stumping him out but the Hitman's awareness of the situation and quick thinking made him kick the ball with his front foot, sending it away from the danger zone. His creative and quick reaction to avoid getting out led to Sharma's fans complimenting his footballing skills on Twitter: @mipaltan vs @rajasthanroyals: Deliberately padded by @ImRo45 , he kicks the ball away with his front leg pic.twitter.com/seDys6h1zi — Om Prasad Pattnayak (@OmPattnayak) April 13, 2019 Rohit be like "Messi who?" ð

Football skills in the middle of a cricket pitch. #IPL2019 #MIvRR — RAJESH SAMAL (@rajesh_offical) April 13, 2019 Next time Luke Shaw is injured we could loan out Rohit Sharma to @ManUtd ...

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Explains Doctor Strange's Time Loop Plan & It Makes Complete Sense

We are less than two weeks away from experiencing the end of an era when the final piece of the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 'Avengers: Endgame' drops in theatres worldwide on 26th April 2019 and nerdy people like us from all around the world have dedicated their lives to predict what the three-hour long movie has in store for us. Such a responsibility, therefore, leads to the formation of numerous theories and speculations ranging from “meh” to absolutely bizarre reactions from the audience and a seemingly endless flow of discussion. One such theory talks about the final outcome of 'Endgame' and the role of Doctor Stephen Strange, who's currently in the 'dust' form on Thanos' home planet of Titan. Before Peter Quill a.k.a. the main reason behind the destruction of half the universe, decided to ruin the ad hoc Avengers' plan to get the Infinity gauntlet out of Thanos' hand, Strange spoke of about 1,40,00,605 scenarios in the future and that there was only one favourable possibility for all of humanity. And during the events of 'Infinity War', Doctor Strange was forced to choose between the life of Tony Stark and his beloved Time Stone and he decided to keep Iron Man alive while giving the Infinity stone to the 'Mad Titan'. Strange later told Stark that it was important for him to stay alive if that one possibility were to come true. via GIPHY Now, if you rewatch the scene from the movie when Strange gives the Time Stone to Thanos, you'd notice that it is glowing and that too not a dull, smouldering glow but the kind each of the stones glow when they are being actively used. via GIPHY This suggests that Stephen Strange might be using the Time stone while surrendering it, maybe even to create a time loop as he did to trap Dormammu and protect the rest of the planet from danger in “real-time”. A couple of months ago, a Redditor by the name of RahulVijh had forward a theory according to which Strange had trapped the Avengers and Thanos in a similar time loop at this point to ensure that they finally reach that one outcome, regardless of how many retakes goes into getting there. The glowing of the stone, therefore, might signal the starting point of the loop. What also gives this argument further weightage is how the trailers for 'Endgame' have been including a lot of footage from the previous movies in the timeline. Also, directors, Anthony and Joseph Russo have admitted to tweaking some clips from older movies to make them look a little different than each other, suggesting all the minor differences that may have occurred in the various times that particular event took place. via GIPHY The more you pay attention to the theory, the more sense it makes and with Dr Strange probably being the only person on the good guys' side, who has the ability to see the future outcomes, the conjecture might be worth putting some thought into.

Drake Curse: The Canadian Rapper's Voodoo That Continues To Plague The Sporting World

It is an irony to see one of the best rappers in the industry turn into a curse for the sporting world. While music and sports are completely different worlds, finding success in one and brandished as a curse in another is an infamous distinction probably no one has achieved, barring, of course, Canadian rapper Drake.

Apart from making the world dance to his hit tunes, Drake seems to have started a curse that continues to rock the sporting world. Rumour has it, that sportspersons tend to lose their respective matches or witness a slump in their performance right after meeting the popular rapper.

While it might seem a little superstitious or far-fetched, but, we kid you not, the 'Drake Curse' is now actually a thing, leaving victims in its wake. The latest celeb who succumbed to the Canadian rapper's curse was none other than Sergio Aguero of Manchester City. A night after winning against Watford in the Premier League, Aguero met Drake at the backstage in Manchester Arena.

And, as expected, when the Argentine returned to the football field for the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday, the 'Drake Curse' was at it again as Aguero missed a penalty that would've surely saved City from a 1-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur. View this post on Instagram Bout to break the curse ð¦ #June1st A post shared by Anthony Joshua (@anthony_joshua) on Mar 21, 2019 at 2:56pm PDT

On the same weekend, Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund also arrived in Manchester to meet the Canadian star and uploaded a photo of himself alongside Drake on Instagram. View this post on Instagram The goat! @champagnepapi ð¤ð¼ð¥ A post shared by Jadon Sancho (@sanchooo10) on Mar 11, 2019 at 6:16am PDT
Soon after, Sancho felt the full effect of the 'Drake Curse'  when his side was humiliated at the hand of Bayern Munich with a 5-0 defeat.

In another instance, when Drake's tour moved to London's O2 Arena, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got a cheeky photo with him holding the Gabonese star's Arsenal shirt. Following which, the Gunners suffered an away defeat against Everton on Sunday, affecting their chances of a top-4 finish in the Premier League.

And that's not all, the 'Drake Curse' has been influencing the sporting world for a while now. Over in America, Serena Williams, the University of Kentucky, Toronto Raptors in NBA, the University of Alabama American Football team have all been victims of the Canadian rapper's voodoo.

You would famously remember Drake being on Conor McGregor's side before the latter's UFC clash with Khabib Nurmagomedov last year. View this post on Instagram The 6 God and The 12 animal! A post shared by Conor McGregor Official (@thenotoriousmma) on Oct 5, 2018 at 6:50pm PDT

Continuing the practice, things did not go as planned for McGregor as he was beaten in emphatic style by the Russian fighter.

Now to the latest, Anthony Joshua, The heavyweight champion who has won every professional fight in his 22-bout career, claims that he is going to end the 'Drake Curse' when he takes on Jarell Miller on 1st June. View this post on Instagram Bout to break the curse ð¦ #June1st A post shared by Anthony Joshua (@anthony_joshua) on Mar 21, 2019 at 2:56pm PDT

Drake visited Joshua's gym last month, following which AJ posted a photo with the rapper claiming: "Bout to break the curse". With Joshua getting into the ring with Miller in less than two months, let's hope the 'Drake Curse' doesn't have any more victims till then.

Brett Lee Embarrasses Young Bloke With A Steaming Yorker During A 'Gully Cricket' Match

Arguably one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, Brett Lee's extreme speed and ability to swing both the new and old ball made him the worst nightmare of the opposition batsmen. The Australian great's success can be measured from his tally of 718 wickets across all formats (310 in Tests, 380 in ODIs and 28 in T20Is).

But, the limitations of his body and lack of steam later in his playing days brought an end to his decade-long career. Now, 'Binga' is busy carrying out the responsibilities of a cricket pundit and commentator at ICC events and private leagues. While he might have called it quits from all forms of cricket, Lee appears to be as menacing as he once was during his playing days.

His steaming yorker is still good enough to escape down the willow of batsmen before rattling the stumps - something that was in full display during an impromptu match of Gully Cricket in Mumbai recently. Instagram/@brettlee_58 Currently roped in by IPL's star broadcaster Star Sports as an expert, Lee is making the most of his time in India. In fact, when he challenged for a Gully Cricket match by local lads in Mumbai, the former Aussie speedster didn't just oblige, but gave a great lesson to the young blokes on fast bowling.

In a video shared by him on Instagram, Lee was seen bowling to a local lad who appeared excited to face one of the most popular fast bowlers in the history of the game. But, little did he know that the old fella with the ball was gearing up to embarrass him in front of his friends. Bowling with a short run-up, Lee fired in a steaming yorker that completely foxed the poor chap and before he could bring the bat down, the ball had rattled the stumps. A impromptu game of Gully Cricket in Mumbai with my good mate @bcl375400 Lee vs Lara, 2 over clash! Had to bowl my two favourite deliveries. Bouncer to Lara followed up by the Yorker to some poor bloke on the other team𤣠Good crowd to cheer on the great West Indian Brian Lara. #hehasstillgotit A post shared by Brett Lee (@brettlee_58) on Apr 11, 2019 at 6:12am PDT
Apart from embarrassing the young kid, Lee was also seen bowling a testing bouncer to West Indian great Brian Lara who did pretty well to leave it after judging the length to perfection. The participation of Lara and Lee in a Gully Cricket game made the day of the youngsters who had lined up to watch the two superstars, once again, work their magic after all these years.
