Girl Telling 'Hum Khake Aaye Hain' To PM Modi Who Was Serving Lunch Has Meme Written All Over It

It's 2019! The year of the pig and to sheer coincidence, it's also the year of Lok Sabha elections in India, as every party, every candidate is burning the midnight oil in order to end up on top. A majority of our politicians have been travelling all over the country in order to boost their chances of winning. Speaking of which, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his entourage reached Vrindavan to serve food to underprivileged school children.  The reason for this visit was to mark the three billionth meal offered by the Akshaya Patra Foundation. A Bengaluru-based non-profit organisation - Akshaya Patra Foundation, has worked with the government to provide mid-day meals. Amidst the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi indulged in a conversation with a boy saying, ”Barah baje milna chahiye tha khaana, der se aaya Pradhan Mantri, aapka khaana late ho gaya, haina?” Before the boy could answer, a girl sitting next to him intervened and her innocent reply will crack you up. View this post on Instagram Had a good conversation with the children. They didn't mind the late lunch :) #AkshayPatra A post shared by Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) on Feb 11, 2019 at 12:40am PST Well, what can we say? Children are indeed the epitome of honesty!

Man Utd v PSG: Can Mbappe Be The Saviour In The Absence Of Neymar & Cavani

Football, as a game, has seen many players win matches single-handedly. The top two players in the world, none other than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have done just that thousands of times. But with their days on top of the world now numbered, who could be the one to replace them? The young star who's been the most talked about in terms of replacing either of the two stars, is not interested in taking their place right now, instead, he wants to make a name for himself and head to the top. Already winning the World Cup as a teenager, the young prodigy, Kylian Mbappe has had a great impact in the football world. The Frenchman has also achieved a bunch of the other most prestigious awards in the footballing world till date. Be it the FIFA Young Player of the Year trophy or the 2018 French Footballer of the Year accolade, Mbappe's resume looks rather impressive for his age. © Reuters But another big test awaits the 20-year-old as his club, Paris Saint-Germain takes on a resurgent Manchester United, in their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 fixture on Tuesday night. Ahead of the match the complete forward line up of PSG, barring Mbappe, has been ruled out for both the legs due to injuries. While Neymar was already suffering from a broken metatarsal, the match against Bordeaux last weekend sent Edinson Cavani, to the treatment room, pushing Thomas Tuchel (PSG Manager) in a tight corner before the Man Utd clash. © Reuters In this crisis, PSG fans expect the young marvel Mbappe to raise his hand and take the burden on himself. Tuchel, in a recent interview, clarified his position regarding Mbappe's leadership in a pre-match press conference as he said: “We can't just place all of the burden and pressure on him, Kylian has his own qualities, it is not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar. He can't do all three things at the same time. He can't be himself and do the other two. He has to be free to play his game, to play with confidence.”   "I want us to be capable to help him to find the right support. Provide him with good passes and in my opinion, he needs to play with a good mindset. He needs to be positive and realise that it is part of his development. It is the kind of moments you really are able to develop as a player," he added. © Reuters The absence of the bigger names could somewhere force Tuchel to change the formation from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1, in which he could play Mbappe in the front with Angel Di Maria and Dani Alves on left attacking midfielder and right attacking Midfielder respectively. With Alves and Thilo Kehrer being the two right backs, he can surely push Alves in Mbappe's support. With Draxler in the middle and Di Maria and Alves on either side, it could definitely prove to be of some help for the centre-forward star. With that said, Mbappe has never really been in this sort of a situation earlier, especially in a game of this magnitude. Even with the national team, the depth of talent in the French squad has also ensured a solid company for the young forward. © Reuters When the draw for the last 16 was made, PSG was widely viewed as the favourites to progress with United labouring in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho. However, the caretaker boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer whipped his magic wand and transformed the fortunes at Old Trafford for the better. They have been undefeated for 11 consecutive matches since the Norwegian's arrival. Former Premier League star Charlie Nicholas predicts a 2-2 draw tonight. “When this draw came out, I gave Manchester United no hope - but now, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I think it could go either way.” Nicholas expressed to SkyBet. “The absences of Neymar and Edinson Cavani are a huge blow for PSG and a boost for United. Cavani would have caused them a ton of problems.”  Another football Pundit, Steve Nicol favours Manchester United for winning the game 2-1 in his recent interview to ESPN. So we definitely know in which directions the odds are headed. © Reuters Despite all the drama in the buildup, what is certain is that we can hope for an action-packed 90 minutes tonight. All eyes will be on Mbappe, and for inspiration, he has to look only as far as the interim manager in the other dugout.

Valentine's Day Is Perfect To Take Her Out On A First Date & Here Are 6 Ideas She'll Love

This may sound like a radical notion, but I believe the best time to ask someone out on a first date is Valentine's Day. I mean, think about it- it's a day for love and anything romantic. The city is splashed with red and pink and the tonality of every mind space reads love. So, there couldn't be a more perfect day for a first date.  Yes, it may come off a bit clichéd to pick a day like Valentine's Day to go on a first date but in all honesty, your inhibitions will automatically be lowered because you'll be comfortable taking your girl out on a day that celebrates love. © UTV Motion Pictures If you feel that the pressure of making everything 'romantic' and 'cheesy' on Valentine's Day is immense because that's what the day is supposed to be about, then don't let it define your first date.  You don't have to define your so-called association and relationship by making it excessively romantic or cheesy. In fact, being casual and spontaneous adds a little more spark to your first date. In any case, you two are absolutely new to each other, so unless you know her damn well, play it safe with your first-date-options. So for all you Tinder and other online dating sites surfers, Valentine's Day seems like the perfect day to ask her out. Here are some casual first-date things you can do on your first date: (1) A Good Comedy Show There is nothing better than some natural humour to spice up your first evening together. Let me tell you that humour is the key ingredient in making anything work. Especially romantic liaisons. So, if you're not naturally funny then head for a comedy show somewhere in the city. Comedy shows are a riot right now, so you'll find one happening with ease. © Pintrest (2) Take-Out Food Date If you're driving that night maybe you can convert your car into a sweet little bistro! Both of you unanimously decide on what you two feel like eating and get a takeaway from the restaurant. Drive to a convenient spot somewhere and maybe have a very personal dinner date together in your car.  Only do it if you're not OCD about finding food bits in your car and if she trusts your intentions and is okay with the plan. Don't whisk her away, without her permission. She may just want to be in a public place with you, which is fine too. But in case she's okay with the plan, then play some soulful music have conversations and a bite to eat. Make sure you're not drinking in the car though. That's a big NO-NO! © Pintrest (3) A Live Music Gig Does The Trick Music is a natural healer and enabler! So if you're nervous AF for your first date with the girl you've been fancying, then take her for a nice musical evening. Find out where some good live gigs are happening and head there. You can mention that you'd like her to see a live gig with you and maybe catch dinner later and she'll definitely agree. Try this one out for sure. © Pintrest (4) Netflix & Chill? Okay, maybe you don't have to 'chill' per-say because you know. I'd advise you against sleeping together on the first date itself but if you want to keep away from the Valentine fervour all around town, you can maybe ask her if she'd be interested in watching a few non-Valentine's Day shows with you on Netflix!  You can make it seem like you're not asking her for sex, but just for some chilling time. You can pop open a bottle of your favourite poison, get some good food and watch something that interests you both or maybe just spend some time conversing and getting to know each other better. © Screen Gems (5) Good 'Ol Fashioned Bowling Bowling dates are so old-fashioned that they need to be brought back. Remember when bowling alleys were the thing almost 10-15 years ago? Well, you can always recreate that fun by taking her bowling. Bowling alleys are still active and functional around towns, so find the best one around you and take her for a good 'ol game of bowling! © Pintrest (6) Karaoke Is Fun! If you want to do something really fun together, head over for a karaoke gig. Karaoke is fun because you're doing something together and laughing about it at the same time. You both can sing old or new songs together and make a bunch of good memories on your first date itself. It's the least clichéd-romantic thing to do and let's face it, it's fun as hell! © Pintrest Valentine's Day is just a push towards some good first dates. If you're looking for the perfect opportunity to ask her out, this could be it. Just plan it well, so it doesn't seem extra-cheesy or lame all at once. You can make it seem like a casual hangout, or a 'get to know each other' session, in the name of St. Valentine's! So, gather that hidden courage and ask her out now!

Treat Yourself & Your Boo With These 5 DIY Date Ideas For A Budget-Friendly Valentine's Day

If you're into a day like Valentine's day, February 14 can mean a lot of pressure in deciding quirky date ideas with boo. Move aside movie dates or eating at a fancy restaurant, you obviously need something above de rigueur routine.  If you prefer staying at home instead of going out, you should definitely read on. Staying at home does not have to mean no effort for your date; it only means if you plan smartly you can surprise your boo with these offbeat ideas. These are super budget-friendly also. 1. Trying Out Face Sheet Masks Together © Instagram Face Sheet masks come in different fruit-based flavours. The best part of these masks is that it literally takes no effort in taking on and off. It's like a mask that you would otherwise wear to a Halloween party if you wanted to dress like a mummy, except this one is wet and full of good stuff for you and your boo's face.  Try them out together and poke fun at each other, click quirky pictures and also get glowing faces by the end of it.  2. Scented Moisturizer Massage Sesh © Getty Images There is something about a scented moisturizer that makes the whole hydrating your skin with a cream a lot more fun. Make it a date, and you would want to add it to your routine. Play with berry-based moisturizers and use it to lightly massage your partner. Start with the back and uncover the rest of the body and watch her return the favour for you. 3. Charcoal Masks And Netflix Binging © Getty Images For the uninitiated, charcoal masks help clear out blackheads and other impurities on the skin. You can apply one, then rest for twenty minutes and remove it. However, this mundane activity can be turned into a date if you do it together and watch a great show in the waiting period and then take it off together. Fun! 4. The Lipstick-Mapping Game © Getty Images We're not asking you to wear it out in the open. A lipstick can be used to scribble on each other's face for fun or could be used for an entirely different scheme of things. Think treasure hunts, words, spots as markers of where you want to touch or be touched--all drawn with a stroke of the rouge stick. The options are endless. 5. Mani-Pedi Sessions © Getty Iamges Another fun date option is going for a manicure and pedicure session together and chilling together whilst both of you get cleaned up. It's a break from routine dates and certainly is a good option to consider.

The Real Names Of Our Favourite WWE Superstars From Our Childhood

Quite often in this world of made-up identities and fake looks, we come across a saying “Naam Me Kya Rakha Hai?” and the guys from WWE take it quite seriously. Taking up quirky, catchy names in order to distinguish themselves from their counterparts,  really works. From the likes of The Boogeyman, The Hurricane, Hulk Hogan to Triple H, Edge and The Undertaker, these legends left no stone unturned in making our childhood glorious.  Just admit it, you use to leave everything you were doing as the clock struck 5 on Monday and Tuesday evenings, just to switch your television on and put on Ten Sports. Though these guys were professional wrestlers with their kayfabe persona, they had a real life and (surprise! surprise!) real names as well. So, tighten up your seatbelts as we go on this ride to know the real names of your favourite wrestlers and relive the nostalgia. 1. The Undertaker - Mark William Calaway © WWE We wouldn't have done justice to this list if The Undertaker's name wouldn't have been on top. The Phenom is the most iconic wrestler the WWE universe has ever seen. Loved by fans of all ages and his 21-0 streak (which is now broken, no thanks to Brock Lesnar) at the Wrestlemania earned him legendary status. Add to that, the evergreen rumour that Undertaker has lived nine lives, made him a real fan-favourite. Apparently, The Undertaker changed his name eight times. Before finally settling upon The Undertaker, he was called 'Kane The Undertaker'. He was given the first name to make it easier on announcers who just didn't really use it for his first few matches. 2. Goldberg - William Scott Goldberg © WWE If you've ever played Smackdown Pain on a PlayStation 2, we know who your go-to player was for those everlasting cage matches. People knew it's over for the opponent once Goldberg had gotten into his stride and gone for the spear which eventually resulted in the Jackhammer. Oh! the nostalgia. On the day of his debut, WWE decided to pick the part 'Goldberg' from the wrestler's real-life name and go with it and he became an absolute legend of the game. 3. Rey Mysterio - Oscar Gutierrez Rubio © WWE While talking about Rey Mysterio, one thing that automatically comes to our mind is his immense athleticism. Jumping over the cage, ropes and even his opponents, the Mexican superstar's finishing move, 619 garnered plaudits from even not-so-frequent watchers of the game. Oscar got the name 'Rey Mysterio' from his uncle Rey Mysterio Sr., who trained him in various fighting techniques. After being known by different names like La Lagartija Verde (The Green Lizard)" and "Colibrí (Hummingbird) his uncle gave him the name Rey Mysterio Jr. 4. The Hurricane - Gregory Helms © WWE How can we forget this guy? Dressed in green with a black mask and a cape at the back, this guy felt like a character straight out of a  Marvel film. The Hurricane was certainly an attention-grabbing wrestler, if not a successful one. When World Cruiserweight Championship (WCW) was bought by WWE, Helms renamed himself as 'The Hurricane' and brought in the superhero gimmick. 5. Umaga - Edward Smith Fatu © WWE Umaga, for the best part of the first 9 months since his debut, was known as 'Undefeated Umaga' because of his stellar start to the career in the organisation. His run of successive wins was finally ended by John Cena in a WWE Championship match. Umaga took his name from the Samoan tattooing process, 'Umaga' meaning 'The End' and his finishing move, the Samoan Spike, certainly did that. 6. Edge - Adam Joseph Copeland © bleacherreport Best known for his unethical antics, Edge in his prime was hated by almost every WWE fan. His allies with Gangrel and Christian, rivalry with John Cena and Triple H, and 'that' marriage with Lita, gave all the fans some moments to savour. 7. Triple H - Paul Michael Levesque © mandatory The five-time World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H has aged like fine wine. Still operating as the Executive Vice Chairman of WWE, Triple H's Spinning Spinebuster followed by a Pedigree used to spell “Game Over” for his opponents. Triple H focused on his former name, Hunter Hearst Helmsley before selecting his permanent one and we can't argue how right he was. 8. The Big Show - Paul Wight © WWE Let's just admit it, Big Show was a real fan-favourite in the trump card game. Marked as the heaviest player at 510 lbs, the big man's Chokeslam is still fresh in our memories. His partnership and rivalry with Brock Lesnar gave us some great matches. As a product of WCW, The Big Show was known as The Giant. After his switch to WWE, he was called Big Nasty before finally settling on The Big Show. 9. Rikishi - Solofa F. Fatu © WWE We can't explain how much fun it was to watch Rikishi wrestle. The blonde haired, Samoan wrestler formed an iconic tag team partnership with The Rock and the pair went on to win World Tag Team Championship. Rikishi's Stinkface was fun to watch finishing move for the supporters but a nightmare for his opponents. Rarely any of them survived. It comes as no surprise that Solofo settled on the Rikishi which literally means 'Sumo Wrestler', something his big frame justifies. 10. The Boogeyman - Martin Wright WWE Whenever we hear the name 'The Boogeyman', an image of a man eating worms, pops up in our minds. Probably the most disgusting wrestler of all time, The Boogeyman proved to be a constant menace for his opponents. Often forcing them to give up with his worm eating tactics. Boogeyman is an imaginary evil spirit, who used to frighten people and right from his debut The Boogeyman just did that, complementing his name completely.

Joe Root Hailed As A 'Gay Icon' After He Shut Shannon Gabriel For His Homophobic Slur

Following their heavy defeats in the first two matches, the England cricket team has responded well in the ongoing third Test against West Indies at the Darren Sammy stadium in St Lucia. The visitors began well with a 277-run total in the first innings and then backed it up with a fine bowling performance that bundled West Indies out for 154 runs. The second innings saw England skipper Joe Root leading from the front, scoring an unbeaten 111 to see his side close on 325/4 - a commanding lead of 448 runs by the end of third day's play. It was Root's 16th Test hundred and for someone who had scored just 55 runs in his first five innings of the ongoing series, it was undeniably a great relief for both the England captain and his fans. © Reuters But, if his pivotal hundred aided England in the second innings, Root's on-field comments during Day 3 earned him plaudits from cricket fans across the globe. In the 44th over, during the afternoon session of play, West Indies seamer Shannon Gabriel was seen exchanging some verbal volleys with the England skipper and his batting partner Joe Denly. While it wasn't clear what the Windies paceman said to the England batsmen, Root was caught on the stump mic telling Gabriel: "Don't use that as an insult. There is nothing wrong with being gay". "Don't use it as an insult. There's nothing wrong with being gay."

Joe Root responds to sledging from Windies bowler Shannon Gabriel. 

Full story: https://t.co/nRfSmWU5q6 pic.twitter.com/ghoDyGxUOi — Sky Sports Cricket (@SkyCricket) February 12, 2019 A video of the incident was later shared on the social media where Root can be heard responding to Gabriel. Root's response further implied that the West Indies fast bowler had uttered a homophobic slur which also instigated a warning from the on-field umpires for the use of abusive language on the field. Lots of respect for Joe Root for this pic.twitter.com/47UP2uS8nK — Alan White (@aljwhite) February 12, 2019 If Root's brilliant response to shut Garbiel's unacceptable sledges struck a chord with cricket fans, the England skipper's comments during media interaction after third day's play further earned him respect. In his press conference, Root refused to confirm or reveal what was said to him by the West Indies pacer. "Sometimes people say things on the field they might regret, but they should stay on the field. He's a good guy who plays hard cricket and is proud to be in the position he is. The battle was a good contest, he's had a wonderful series and he should be proud. I don't want anything said in the middle to ruin what's been a good Test series for him and his team," Root said. Good that he challenged the guy there and then. Also good that he didn't want to make a media circus out of it later. — Susan Bayles (@SusanBayles) February 12, 2019 More sports people should do that.  It's mire powerful than arguing or a rumble. — Tigerbright (@AndrewCasey16) February 12, 2019 Didn't think sledging was still a thing. Good on Joe Root for knocking this one for six. — Daniel Reast (@RoastedReast) February 12, 2019 Think I've just fallen a teeny bit more in love with Joe. — Sassa_61 (@Sassa_61) February 12, 2019 hats off to Root for showing exactly what being an English Gentleman is all about. — Fred Jasper (@Fredfrr1982) February 12, 2019 Handled amazingly by @root66 Drew the line, informed him he was out of order and didn't make a massive issue afterwards just that he would learn from it. Well done young man, that's one of the reasons you will captain this side for a long time — Ryan (@Ryan71160107) February 12, 2019 Wonderfully played, Joe.

How confusing it must be to be Shannon Gabriel - simultaneously holding such narrow-minded views and the most âï¸ name in competitive male sport. — Nick Boocock (@nickboocock) February 12, 2019 Superb comeback ðð»ðð»ðð» great asset to the sport @englandcricket — Christopher Logan (@CLCourtney82) February 12, 2019 Well done @root66 - excellent. In the heat of the match, appreciating there are other important things. Great ambassador for the sport and his country. — Middlesex HUA (@MiddxUmpires) February 12, 2019 @root66 Well said Skip! A great day's play and the perfect response to homophobic trash talking like that. ðð¼ððð — Ladysquiz (@Ladysquiz) February 12, 2019

Savi & Vidit's Wanderlust Love Story Involves Travelling Around The World 365 Days With Each Other

Seeing the world through the eyes of an explorer soothes more than just our senses, it feeds our soul. There is a renewed sense of vitality that comes from seeking the world with an avid lust of a traveller, who wishes to discover new places and gather experiences that turn out to be nothing less than Aladdin's treasure. This becomes all the more poignant when people say that the world is an oyster for those who know where to look. Tryst with the travel bug is made memorable every time we witness the lush hill stations, or snow-capped mountains and pristine islands sitting in the lap of nature, that are scattered around the world. © Instagram Yet, such amazing experiences would get heightened manifold if one could witness the teeming beauty of this world in the company of someone they love and wish to share their life with. It is a life that most couples would kill for, and there is no guessing why. The possibility of discovering the captivating beauty of the earth with the person who makes your world go round, would pretty much be like living the dream life. And let us tell you that Vidit and Savi are living this exact life. They are lovers as well as travellers in love, and this is exactly how their story unfolded. For Vidit and Savi, their love for travelling and discovering the world together first began from the backseat of their school bus rides at DPS R. K. Puram. Talking about that time of their life Savi says, “we met in high school in New Delhi – we were friends for years, dated for ages, and then got married!” © Instagram Even their first date involved the outdoors, and even though it was a long time ago, Savi remembers it like it was yesterday, “we went for a long drive and coffee at a newly-opened coffee shop in the city! I'd happily do that on a date even today!” Even after having seen most of the world with Vidit, Savi is more than happy to take him up on a similar date even today - who said little things don't count? From that first date to a gazillion one-of-a-kind dates later, Savi and Vidit have come a long way. However, it was back in 2008 when the couple took the biggest leap of their lives. From travelling as a couple to scaling thousands of miles to get married and travel to a new place every month and amping that up to travelling to a new destination every few days and leaving their jobs to make it possible, Savi and Vidit's journey has been nothing short of an adventure. © Instagram The couple decided to document it all on their blog 'Bruised Passports', which today has a great following online. So, when Jaime Lynn Beatty once said that, “jobs fill your pocket, but adventures fill your soul,” we suppose nobody could live up to this saying better than the makers of 'Bruised Passports'. As of today, the couple has travelled to 90 countries around the world, with many more to go as per their itinerary. However, their journey as travellers in love began when they were teenagers. Recalling their journey as a couple, this is what Savi had to say, “we travelled a fair bit in South East Asia as teenagers when we had just started dating because Vid went to university in Singapore. That's when both of us fell in love with travelling together!” © Instagram Soon, life caught up with the young couple and “as we grew up, we moved to London and got married. At this stage of our lives, we would save our salaries to travel together each month. We spent almost 8 years in London and would try to travel to a new place every month! This is how we ended up exploring Europe, the US, and parts of Africa.” However, the thrill of exploration and discovery rubbed off on the couple and they began to seek much more of what they had already tasted of life as travellers. Savi shares more and says, “sometime along the way we fell in love with travelling and savouring new experiences. Eventually, we ended up working towards travelling full time. Experiencing remote corners and busy cities of the world together has brought us a lot closer. It's like being partners-in-crime at a whole new level.” © Instagram Yet, when we asked them of their most cherished memory, this is what they had to say, “Finnish Lapland - the feeling of lying in a transparent glass igloo and looking out at the Northern Lights is incomparable. A trip to Lapland offers so many bucket list items - riding a reindeer, sledging with husky dogs, seeing the Northern Lights, cruising through a frozen sea, swimming with icebergs - and for that reason, it is second to none!” Just reading about it is making us daydream about all the glory they might have witnessed, and that sure as hell would be one of the most romantic ways of spending a date night with our significant other, don't you agree? © Instagram But this journey that Savi and Vidit set out on over a decade ago has taught them as much about each other as individuals, as it has taught them about relationships and life at large.  Vidit shares how he learns something new from Savi every single day, “I have learnt to be a fighter when it comes to achieving goals. Savi has a meticulous rhythm of working and because of that, I learn something new from her every day. She juggles so  many different roles and does it all with perfection.” As for Savi, she claims that “I've learnt the art of prioritising from Vid and never settling for anything less than 100%. He strives for complete happiness, in work and life, and isn't afraid of spending hours, days, or even years to achieve something. But it has to look exactly like what he had in mind! I'm also really proud of the fact that he's passionate about gender equality and is always talking about how important it is to fight stereotypes and respect women.” © Instagram And when you ask the couple what their relationship has taught them over the years, they say, “loads. But mostly that a long term relationship isn't always about flowers and candles. It's about adventure, experiences, mind-numbing compatibility, and consciously CHOOSING to be with someone every single day. And marriage isn't about duties, being 'tied down' (the one stereotype we hate the most!) or becoming one soul!” For them, love and marriage mean nothing else than saying that, “it's actually about celebrating your individualities, being two financially independent people supporting each other's dreams, giving each other strength when all hope is lost, and most importantly having fun!” © Instagram Savi and Vidit may have travelled far and wide on the face of this earth, but they have also managed to discover themselves in the process, and grow as individuals as well as a couple by coming in touch with myriad people, places and cultures which only helped them to appreciate life and each other a lot better. Why? Because this world can be the greatest teacher, and when you know where to look, it can surprise you with some of life's most splendid experiences.

4 Things We Can't Wait To Witness In Ranveer Singh & Alia Bhatt's 'Gully Boy'

The much-awaited, extremely hyped up and super interesting 'Gully Boy' is all set to be our Valentine's Day treat, and since the movie has oversold itself and opened to rave reviews and packed houses at the Berlin Film Festival, it's natural to set our bar higher.  Here are 4 things we are looking forward to witnessing in Zoya Akhtar's super ambitious movie: 1. Ranveer & Alia's Power-Packed Performances- This is the most obvious and our first and foremost reason to watch the movie. Ranveer has been very vocal about how he just couldn't resist this role and knowing that he is a closet rapper himself, this will be a good watch. Also, this has already been declared his career's best performance so far, so there's that as well. As for Alia, this actress never fails to surprise us with her powerful performance. 2. Zoya Akhtar's Brilliant Vision- Probably one of the most iconic directors this industry has witnessed. Zoya's storytelling has 'brilliance' written all over it and her personal style of including a 'slice of life'  angle to it, is what makes the audience fall for her amazing narrative.  3. Platform For The Growing Rap Scene In India- India, for a while now, has been witnessing the burgeoning growth in the genre of  Hip Hop and rap. This movie is a great platform to give centre stage to the wonderful voice of this particular form of music. Also, this will pave way for more similar movies, where our home-grown artists can get their due recognition. 4. The Music Is A Breath Of Fresh Air- Since the movie deals with the rap circle in India, it has also opened our up ears to a newfound sense of sound and music with this movie. It's already a big hit right now. In case you haven't watched the trailer yet, prepare yourself for some major awesomeness. The movie hits theatres on 14th February. If you are someone who is looking for a movie date this Valentine's Day, then this is your pick.

If you love the occasion or think that it's a big scam, you can't deny that it is the perfect opportunity to dress up your best and go to town. Also, every place has a romantic vibe to it which makes the holiday ideal for date night.  The perfectly planned V-day date demands appropriate outfit.

Have a look.  1. Dinner Date  © Instagram /ishabhansali Now that you've got a reservation done, let's talk about the outfit. Go for a tailored suit but in an elevated way. You can switch it up with a double breasted jacket and opt for sneakers or Chelsea boots to make it a little casual. Experiment with prints , colors and accessories. You wouldn't want to look like you're off to a business meeting. You can also ditch your shirts and go for a turtle neck or a graphic tee underneath your tailored piece to add a touch of understated style.  2. Brunch Date © Instagram/vickykaushal09 As casual as brunch is, it's good to look a little put together for a date. So, showing up in pajamas may not be the best idea. Pair a casual shirt in any single color or print with dark washed jeans and a denim jacket. A denim jacket adds a layer of comfort and sass. Go for slip-ons or Chelsea boots for an understated yet stylish look.   3. Post-Work Date  © Instagram /ishabhansali After a long day of work, the only V-day plans you'd want would be to spend some quite time over a bottle of wine and some Netflix. Go for a nice shirt and chinos with some loafers to ace that business casual feel. Roll up your sleeves for comfort and to add some sophistication to your outfit. Since you can't dress to work super casual, turn your work clothes to a super chic look.  Now you have your personalized guide to transform any look into a Valentine's day date-worthy one. No matter where you go, keep it classy, guys!

9 People Tell What's The Last Thing They Would Do If It All Ended With A Big Bang

"...Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries That all started with the big bang!" The Big Bang Theory song is everything you need to know about how we (read: Earth) came into existence. Although, to think about it, the first ever big bang marked the beginning of the world. Ever wondered what will happen if and when a second big bang happens? Even better - What is the last thing you would do if it all ended with a big bang? I think I am going to stuff myself with a cheesecake. Because why not? Who cares about carbs now that everything is coming to an end. Then again, it's me.  So, I asked some what is the last thing they would do if it all ended with a big bang, and here are some of the top answers: 1. I think I am going to grow a pair and tell my crush how I felt about her for the last seven years. 2. I have been saving up for a solo Paris trip. Might as well do that! 3. Have sex for one last time! No doubt about that.  4. Delete texts. Because someone ALWAYS survives and I would not want to take that risk. 5. I think I am going to treat myself with every kind of biryani that is there on the menu. And oh, have beer too!  6. I am going to go up to my school bully and punch him hard in the face. No holds barred! 7. Have the last cigarette with my best friend. 8. Tell the next-door 'sanskari' aunty, "Your sex life cannot EVER be is as exciting as mine. And now you are going to die too!" 9. Watch my favourite show live from L.A. Now that can be a possibility. No kidding, guys! It really is.  How, you ask? Our favourite series on Zee Café - 'The Big Bang Theory' is coming to an end, and as much as we are unhappy about it, here is a silver lining to this sad news.  Zee Café is running a contest, till February 15, which gives all The Big Bang Theory fans an opportunity to watch the show live in Los Angeles.

اس گلی کے لوگوں کو منہ لگا کے پچھتائے

اس گلی کے لوگوں کو منہ لگا کے پچھتائے ایک درد کی خاطر کتنے درد اپنائے تھک کے سو گیا سورج شام کے دھندلکوں میں آج بھی کئی غنچے پھول بن کے مرجھائے ہم ہنسے تو آنکھوں میں تیرنے لگی شبنم تم ہنسے تو گلشن نے تم پہ پھول برسائے اس گلی میں کیا کھویا اس گلی میں کیا پایا تشنہ کام پہنچے تھے تشنہ کام لوٹ آئے پھر رہی ہیں آنکھوں میں تیرے شہر کی گلیاں ڈوبتا ہوا سورج پھیلتے ہوئے سائے جالبؔ ایک آوارہ الجھنوں کا گہوارہ کون اس کو سمجھائے کون اس کو سلجھائے

تنہائی کا دکھ گہرا تھا

تنہائی کا دکھ گہرا تھا میں دریا دریا روتا تھا ایک ہی لہر نہ سنبھلی ورنہ میں طوفانوں سے کھیلا تھا تنہائی کا تنہا سایا دیر سے میرے ساتھ لگا تھا چھوڑ گئے جب سارے ساتھی تنہائی نے ساتھ دیا تھا سوکھ گئی جب سکھ کی ڈالی تنہائی کا پھول کھلا تھا تنہائی میں یاد خدا تھی تنہائی میں خوف خدا تھا تنہائی محراب عبادت تنہائی منبر کا دیا تھا تنہائی مرا پائے شکستہ تنہائی مرا دست دعا تھا وہ جنت مرے دل میں چھپی تھی میں جسے باہر ڈھونڈ رہا تھا تنہائی مرے دل کی جنت میں تنہا ہوں میں تنہا تھا
