A List Of Conspiracy Theories About Coronavirus That Uncles Share On WhatsApp Family Groups

It's true that coronavirus pandemic is freaking everyone out. And more so, our family members, uncles, and aunties who choose to believe what they read on family groups on Whatsapp and Facebook rather than watching actual news. So, the WhatsApp text that your uncle sent that reveals the miraculous cure for coronavirus should be instantly deleted. However, fake news is more widespread than just in your family, and more often than not creates panic that is uncalled for. It's important to educate ourselves with how we should be dealing with this situation with the WHO (World Health Organisation) recommended precautionary measures like washing our hands ever so often, distancing ourselves socially, etcetera. Now, that we've set things straight, some fake news around coronavirus has been quite hilarious. So, we thought we'll share some wild conspiracy theories with you. 1. Coronavirus Turns You Into A Zombie © iStock In Malaysia, online rumours spread that the novel coronavirus can make you act like a zombie. The Walking Dead kind. The claim that individuals infected with this virus will behave like zombies was then dismissed by the government soon after.
2. Scientists Invented The Virus © iStock The Russian news Sputnik claims "very smart biologists and pharmacists" in Latvia invented the new COVID-19 coronavirus. Other sources close to the Kremlin said, it was made in the British military's Porton Down facilities. We all know that it was traced to the Wuhan market by now.
3. Drinking Bleach Can Cure Coronavirus © iStock Bleach, which people refer to as âMiracle Mineral Solutionâ, has a history of being promoted by fringe groups as a cure or vaccine for everything from autism to cancer and HIV/AIDS. While it could probably clean your stomach, it will definitely poison you as well.
4. Coronavirus Was Funded By Bill Gates And World Health Organization © iStock Some people claim that Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation, in partnership with the World Health Organization âplannedâ the coronavirus pandemic. Twitter user @Jordan_Sather_ claimed that they filed a patent for the coronavirus vaccine in 2015 which was approved in 2018. He further went on to share the related documents that supported the bizarre claim. However, the papers obviously show that the patent filed was for potential vaccine development that only covered the avian strain of coronavirus that apparently affects birds, a leading publication reported.
5. Avoiding Eating Ice Cream Can Prevent Coronavirus © iStock Apparently, avoiding cold drinks and ice cream can help stop coronavirus. Some people even think eating spicy food can help protect them from infection. These claims are spreading through WhatsApp as well as as TikTok. Maybe, this is why aunties ask us to not eat ice-cream these days.

Ranveer Singh's IG Pictures Are Too Relatable & Reflect Our Feelings About Self-Quarantining

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to recede into our houses and practise social distancing. This is going to continue for a couple of weeks with no certainty as to when things will be back to routine life. Celebrities are no exception to this. Like us, celebrities too find themselves in an odd situation of sitting at home with plenty of time to do things they never fathomed were possible.  In fact, in the last two weeks, a lot of people have become a lot more active on social media, courtesy no outside contact whatsoever. Celebrities too have started engaging with fans through their IG accounts. For instance, Ranveer Singh has become a lot more active on Instagram. In fact, since yesterday he's posted 5 posts already. What's interesting is, that his post reflects some of the feelings that we've been going through as well in self-quarantine. Take a look. 1. This picture sums up how sometimes, one can get lazy in the quarantine. In fact, having no fixed routine can sometimes mean not getting out of bed for an entire day and not taking a shower. While one may assume that celebrities aren't like that, that's not necessarily true. While this picture is from an earlier shoot of Ranveer Singh's, it does reflect the sentiment of admitting to not groom once in a while. View this post on InstagramMe coming out of quarantineA post shared by (@ranveersingh)2. Gulping down Nutella jars one after the other, we've all been guilty of this.   View this post on InstagramEk toh gaya ð ab tera kya hoga, Bajirao?A post shared by (@ranveersingh) 3.

Here's A Check List Of Everything To Stock Up On To Survive The Coronavirus Lockdown

In the age of enticing food delivery apps like Zomato and Swiggy that have completely changed the landscape of how we order our food and more importantly how often we order our food, which no one can deny has increased at an exponential rate in the last few years, dealing with a pandemic now has been rather unsettling. In the last few weeks, amidst the coronavirus crises, a lot of us have had to abruptly change our food choices as most of us have started working from home. With paranoia increasing, a lot of us have had to stop ordering food online and switch to cooking in the kitchen. And, if you're living with your family like me, your family will definitely not let you order from outside. In fact, smuggling in food, if caught is met with fuming stares and justifiably so, with a whopping rise in Covid-19 patients, the last thing we want is to transition into a situation like Italy which our country most definitely cannot handle. This means that you need to stock up your kitchen for the next couple of weeks in a way that does not leave you frustrated for good food. With rising pandemic panic, people are stocking up like never before, which means you'll need to get your kitchen stocked up with essentials. This doesn't mean that you get six months' worth of food. Firstly, that's impractical and the food might get spoilt and secondly, the supply is anyway less, so you should stick to what you need and leave the rest for other people to take. 1. Let's start with basics, you need to make sure your food staples are well accounted for in the next two weeks. This refers to staples in a regular Indian diet. Rice, wheat flour, potatoes, onions, lentils that you prefer on the regular, kidney beans, chickpeas, and sugar. Make sure you have enough to last you a while. These ingredients are versatile and can be cooked in a number of ways.  © iStock 2. For the freezer, you could get packets of peas, corn, among other vegetables that can be frozen and meat that can be frozen for a while, these are ingredients that you can fish out to make the everyday meals interesting. 
© iStock 3. Stock long-lasting fruits like bananas, apples, grapefruit, oranges. Unripe bananas will ripen over the course of several days, so you can enjoy them as you go. You could also slice and freeze them for snacking or to toss in smoothies down the line. 
© Varun Dhawan/ Instagram 4. For daily essentials like milk, eggs, and bread, subscription services come in handy. Apps like BB Daily and Amazon offer great delivery services. However, taking into account the high demand at present that can result in late deliveries, you could check with your kirana stores if they offer delivery services. If your state is under lockdown, it's important to know that these delivery services are still working even if they deliver late.
© iStock 5. Another Indian kitchen staple is the 'masala box' that filled with all the condiments and spices that are an essential component of every dish. You'll have to make sure all the masalas are stocked up well.
© iStock 6. For snacking, you could stock up on jars of peanut butter, cheese, and Nutella that is easily available on these subscription services as well. 
© iStock 7. You also need to account for food that suits your health needs and for people you're living with, for different health conditions, you'll have a list of things that you need to avoid and things you definitely need to stock up on. Make sure, you're all set with that stuff stocked in the cabinet as well.
© Ranveer Singh/ Instagram While I'm sure that stocking up on these essentials hasn't been tough, it's letting the stock sit in the cabinets that are an actual problem. We're referring to the constant cravings that you will now have whilst sitting at home. Not stepping out of your house also means that you're losing out on your daily steps targets and the gym/cult sessions that kept your weight on track. And bingeing on fattening foods is only going to make the situation worse. So, you could also make it point to stock up on healthier alternatives that work for you. In general, establishing a routine, in terms of when you'll have your meals helps to keep your meals in check.

As the world continues to fight this deadly war against the novel coronavirus which has plagued the normal functioning of the world, many things are falling apart. No antidote or vaccination known to mankind is working and self-isolation and social distancing is being preached globally. Some celebrities are using their status and money for a wonderful cause and hereâs how some of them are contributing towards the corona relief efforts:  1.

Anand MahindraOne of the few Indians who is loved for his genuine concerns and generosity whenever humanity calls for help. The industrialist has announced to give up his  full salary towards a relief fund and also he has offered to convert the Mahindra resorts into temporary care facilities, and has pledged to look into how his companyâs manufacturing unit aid in the manufacturing of more ventilators.  © Twitter According to the experts, India is currently in the Phase 3 of the pandemic and if we don't continue to follow precautionary measures stringently, India could be hit hard and things will go out of proportion for the country. 
Our celebrities back home are urging their fans and followers to stay home, adhere to the lockdown norms and spend quality time with our families. No news of any donations or initiatives have come forward so far but they are keeping up with their job of keeping us entertained at least, let's give them that.  As a common person, who cannot maybe make global donations worth millions, there are a few things we still can do to contribute and make our country safer. If possible you can take out few minutes of your day and feed the stray dogs and cats around your house. With restaurants being shut, a large number of innocent animals can starve easily since finding food will be a task.  Also, if you know any aged people living around you, maybe you can volunteer to pick up some groceries for them when you do it for yourself. It takes simple efforts to help each other after all.

4 Super Easy Ways To Clip Your Nails At Home Without Hurting Yourself

If you see the good side, clipping your nails is actually a straight forward thing. It is all about trimming your nails when they grow long. But the crucial thing here is that your nails need more care and nourishment than just trimming. During this self-quarantine phase, you don't need to call a manicurist or go out. Instead you can be at the comfort of your home and fix these issues yourself.  Here's how you ramp up the way you cut your nails without hurting yourself: 1. Don't Cut Straight  © iStock Whenever you start trimming your nails, make sure the clipper is round-bladed. While using this, cut it like the curve of the blade. Make sure you are not cutting it straight on as it will ultimately lead to nail bending and you will damage them. It is okay to cut it three to four times before but slowly work the clipper or you could end up hurting yourself.
2. Take Care Of The White Line © iStock Before you start cutting your nails, always check how long is the white line at the top of your nails. If you notice that it has exceeded the fingertip length, only then you should reach out for your nail clipper. If you do pre-cut, it could hamper the skin beneath it.
Make sure while you are cutting, you match all the nails with the smallest tip. That way all the nails will look well synced and neat. 3. Don't Forget Hangnails  © iStock Hangnails are really painful, especially if you cut them off with your teeth. It leads to bleeding and hurts for days to come. Take a clipper, and leave the base area, trimming the rest. Never leave it open since the area is super sensitive and the condition will only worsen from this point.
4. Clean Underneath © iStock This is one step that should be followed ardently every day. Your nails are a safety net for germs and grime and hence a cuticle pusher will come in handy during such times. It helps scrape away the dirt underneath.

Indians Take Out 'Corona Rally' During Janta Curfew & Turn Social Distancing Into A Joke

A pandemic that has gripped the world has basically brought the lives of people on this planet to a standstill. While half of the globe is on a lockdown, residents of every country are trying to find their own coping mechanisms to deal with the anxiety and the fear of staying locked in which is part of the "social distancingââ. Earlier on March 19, Prime Minister Modi addressed the nation, in his televised speech, and called for a "Janta Curfew" on March 22 between 7am and 9pm. He also called on Indians to gather on their balconies, yards of their home premises and windows at 5pm on the same day of Janta Curfew to demonstrate their appreciation of these critical service providers by clapping, clanging metal vessels, or ringing bells for five minutes. The country surely responded well but people in some parts of the nation probably went too far and didn't get the real idea behind this suggestion.  Looks like they didn't understand about the part where you are supposed to practice social distancing and stay HOME.  People actually took out insane rallies to clap, dance and bang utensils in colonies thus jeopardising the whole idea of "social distancing" - ironic since this was the idea behind PM Modi's call for Janta Curfew. Besides, this has only wasted the efforts of these critical service providers, who are working day in and day out for us.  Here, take a look: Why cant some people cant understand the seriousness and the word #jantacurfew disappointed to see people on road when #covid19 is spreading so badly..if you are in this video be ashamed of yourself.requesting police and government to come up with more strict rules @narendramodi pic.twitter.com/tlefmTfofs â Jay Bhanushaali (JB) (@jaybhanushali0) March 22, 2020Bombay folks celebrating the demise of coronavirus by coming out on the street in groups pic.twitter.com/nNQ8uNb3Bt â Ankur Bhardwaj (@Bhayankur) March 22, 2020Thread

Now our Indianess and the "chalta hai", "dekha jayega" attitude touched its peak as lakhs of over zealous, super enthu cutlets thought this was a wonderful idea to come together and celebrate the heroes this way.

Mass ignorance is now a critical danger to public health in India. â Mohamed Zeeshan (@ZeeMohamed_) March 22, 2020What was sadder I think is the fact that in some places like districts in Pilibhit, police officers were seen strolling casually with the public clapping and ringing bells.  Hi @pilibhitpolice @Dmpilibhit , this photo is from your official tweet . Can you please explain why the police chief and DM totally disregarded safe - distance norms and led this procession at 5 pm during the #JantaCurfew ? .... pic.twitter.com/xyLrnoGNg5 â Alok Pandey (@alok_pandey) March 22, 2020A quick two minutes into wondering why and how we as a democracy are failing to practice one simple rule of social distancing?

Please do not take this opportunity to visit relative or chill with friends. You probably might not be infected but you can be a carrier. Push yourself and the people around you to sing and dance in isolation, not in the community parking lot!

6 Bollywood Actors Who Have Disappeared From The Industry & We Don't Really Miss Them

Hundreds and thousands of people move to Mumbai everyday with just one dream of becoming an actor. Some people struggle really hard and yet don't get that chance, while some of them get that golden chance but despite having talent, looks and the right attitude, they get lost after their grand debut. Most of us know how difficult it is to get a break in Bollywood and to uphold the success that follows is even tougher.  Here we have a list of such B-town actors, just a film or two old, who got their big break in the acting industry and eventually got lost.  Check it out:  1. Fardeen Khan Fardeen Khan debuted in the year 1998 in the film Prem Aggan. The son of veteran actor Feroz Khan did many films in his career of twelve years such as Jungle, Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, Om Jai Jagadish, No Entry, Heyy Babyy, and All the Best: Fun Begins.  Despite his good looks, he couldnât really impress the audience and his last film Dulha Mil Gaya failed badly at the box office. 2. Jugal Hansraj He started his career as a child artist in the film Masoom in the year 1983 and later was seen in blockbuster film Mohabbatein.  Jugal was liked by the audience and he has a dreamy face and a convincing screen presence. Despite all this, he couldnât stay for long in Bollywood and was last seen in Madhuri Dixit starrer Aaja Nachle in the year 2007. 3. Ayesha Takia Ayesha Takia initially started her career with debuting in music videos in the year 2004. She acted in films like Salaam- E- Ishq, Wanted and Dor. She also received a Screen Award for Best Actress Critics for the film Dor, but failed to make her name in the Bollywood A-list actors. 
4. Zayed Khan We donât know where this one disappeared! He was first seen on the big screen in 2003 in the film Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne.  He was also seen in films like Main Hoon Na, Dus, Fight Club â Members Only, Yuvvraaj, and Blue. However, the actor was forgotten soon and wasn't seen on the silver screen since then.  5. Celina Jaitly Celina Jaitly became Miss India in the year 2001 and started her career with debuting alongside Fardeen Khan in Janasheen in 2003.  She was also seen in films like No Entry, Apna Sapna Money Money, Golmaal Returns but failed to sustain in the industry.  6. Harman Baweja  Just like our governmentâs five-year plan, the actor had a five-film career in Bollywood and all of his films were a big flop.  He acted in films like Whatâs Your Raashee and Love Story 2050. The actor was also said to have dated Priyanka Chopra during his time in the industry.  Did we miss any other actor? Let us know in the comments section below.

5 Famous Actors Who Found Success After 40 Proving That Age Has Got Nothing To Do With Talent

Bollywood is a churning machine of talent and while "catch ém while they are young" is the mantra for a lot of successful actors in the industry, some of the most talented people in the industry managed to find major success only after the age of 40.   Here is the list of five actors who have proved that age has got nothing to do with talent: 1. Boman Irani No one could go back to what would have become of the Munnabhai franchise without the presence of this talented actor who began his career in the industry only after he was 40 years of age. View this post on InstagramNavroze Mubarak to one and all!!!!! For the first time on Navroze Iâm not at a Parsi Natak. On our terrace instead. Will go down and spend the evening with family. Not a bad idea at all. The terrace however displayed a rather crisp and pastel skyline. A positive takeaway from all this. So once again. NAVROZE MUBARAK. One more thing. Whatsapp forwards spread a disease called Panic. We know what to do. So just do it. Stay home with family and take the prescribed precautions. Soap, distance and smile. They arenât very tough to follow.A post shared by (@boman_irani)2. Adil MishraHe got some attention in the 2010 Ishqiya but after a few blink and miss performances, he was nowhere to be seen until English Vinglish happened. After some strong performances in Life Of Pi and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Adil is now a favourite amongst the new age directors.  © Twitter 4. Pankaj TripathiA man who performs with grace par excellence, he has had his fair share of struggle in the industry but at the age of 43, life has come full circle and itâs the beginning of a new innings for him.

4 Hair Care Tips That Men Can Follow To Get Salon-Like Hair During Self-Isolation

People everywhere are following the rules of staying indoors, self-quarantining and social distancing. There are ways in which you can make the most of this time by actually dipping your toes into something experimental. Take your hair for example, since it is a lockdown sort of a situation where the whole world is operating virtually, have you wondered what will happen to your hair if you cannot visit your salon, any time sooner? Even though the spread of coronavirus is rapid, the same won't be the case if you are in self-quarantine. While you are at it, you can actually treat your hair with some great nourishment at home. Here's how you can do so. 1. Use An Egg Conditioner © iStock What this means is that you should not just use your hair shampoo but also get a hair conditioner, filled with proteins and essential minerals, as it helps strengthen your hair follicles. All this while, the travelling actually deteriorates the hair quality but with conditioning, the ingredients in it will penetrate deep into your scalp, making your hair follicles stronger than ever. Try it out.
2. Don't Shampoo Every Day © iStock Now that you are self-quarantining, all your procrastination to not shower will pay off. How, you ask? Not taking head baths every day is actually beneficial for your hair. Washing your hair daily can dry your hair and also strip off your hair's natural oils. Hence, it is advised that you don't shampoo your hair as often as you do right now.
3. The Good Old Champi Days © iStock Sorry, but shampoo and conditioner will not be enough. Ask your mother for coconut oil, add some curry leaves to it and heat it on medium flame. This oil, when you massage it on your scalp, will leave your hair follicles hydrated and nourished. Moreover, it instantly makes your hair look thicker, believe it or not. 
4. Hair Spa © iStock Now that you cannot go to salons and need to treat your hair at home because God knows where the virus is residing, start with hair spa at home. To do so, oil your hair first and let it stay for 20 minutes. Then, take a towel and dip it in hot water. Now, wrap it around your hair. The steam helps penetrate the oil deep inside your scalp. 
The next step is to wash your hair like how you would do it regularly. Use a conditioner post this step. Wash off your hair, step out and apply a mask made of two eggs and two spoons of coconut oil. Don't forget to massage your follicles when you apply this mask. Wash off after half an hour. Do this once a week, till the time you can't visit your salon!

From Celebs To 'Aam Janta', India Stands United In Paying Tribute To Our Unsung Heroes

Today was a day like no other. Narendra Modi in his speech had announced that March 22, 2020 is going to be Janta Curfew, wherein people won't step out of their house the entire day. However, at 5 pm, to respect people who are risking their lives amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has taken over the world, people are supposed to step out in their balconies and clap and even use their kitchen utensils to ring in unison as a mark of respect.  Around 4.55 pm, people had already started clapping and ringing bells in their balconies, and as the minutes passed the ringing sound exponentially increased. While the street dogs got scared after a relatively peaceful day sans human interaction, people were blasting ringing music on their Marshall speakers. Some people were recording this strange affair and put it up online. The hashtag #5baje5minute is going to be trending for a while now. Here are some reactions online and how celebrities participated today. 1. Here are the residents in Ahmedabad.Here's Ahmedabad residents thanking all our health workers & everyone out their for all the efforts!

Birds Flying Freely Amid Janta Curfew While Humans Caged Inside Is Ironic & People Find It Surreal

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a televised speech on Thursday, urged the nation to stay indoors on Sunday to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus which is wreaking havoc across the globe. 
As per the reports, the number of coronavirus cases in India has crossed 324 so far and itâs only increasing each day. To fight this deadly virus, many countries across the globe have gone on total lockdown. © Unsplash In todayâs Janta Curfew, itâs ironic to witness animals roaming around freely on the road and people locked inside their houses.
If not anything, the whole situation has certainly made the entire human race to realise how badly weâve exploited the mother nature and now it is making us pay for our deeds.  © Unsplash Today, ANI shared a picture of a flock of pigeons gathered in Connaught Place, Delhi area, as people have restricted their movements in the city amid the Janta Curfew.

Crew Of Medical Dramas Like 'Grey's Anatomy' Are Donating Supplies To Hospitals To Fight Coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic has shaken all of us up. The reason why everyone's laying emphasis on flattening the curve is that we don't want to choke hospitals with patients and leave them in a situation wherein they don't have enough medical supplies. With hospitals around the world facing shortages of essential medical supplies like masks, major corporations around the world have started doing their bit. From LVMH making sanitizers in their factories to Zara producing masks. Even medical sitcoms like Station 19 and Grey's Anatomy have decided to donate supplies to hospitals and fire stations in need. © ABC network Other shows that have made donations, or are planning to, include Fox's The Resident and ABC's The Good Doctor. For a lot of these shows, medical essentials like the N95 masks, gowns, and gloves are stocked to be used as props on the sets of these shoes. But considering, the world is dealing with a pandemic that is depleting all medical resources, the showrunners have decided to donate all the medical stocks.
© Sony Liv ABC shared the statement from Grey's and Station 19's executive producer Krista Vernoff with a leading publication. 
© ABC network "At Station 19, we were lucky enough to have about 300 of the coveted N95 masks which we donated to our local fire station. They were tremendously grateful. At Grey's Anatomy, we have a backstock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well. We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home."
Most show productions have come to a halt as the coronavirus threat continues to increase by the day. Among TV-series and films, Grey's Anatomy and The Resident both halted productions before the current season was completed. Considering all the medical supplies would've anyway been unused and would lie in the stocks, this proves to be an excellent move on their part.

Here's How To Survive Self Isolation With Our Significant Others & Strengthen The Bond Further

Social distancing has become a lifestyle now, and definitely not by choice. It's the need of the hour for survival in a time of a serious pandemic and we have to learn how to work around it somehow. The outbreak of deadly coronavirus across the globe is a matter of serous concern and everything should be done in measure to ensure the safety and protection of people everywhere. 
The first thing we can and should do for ourselves is to create a healthy distance from everyone else and stay in self-isolation. This is because even if we're not infected, we could be secondary carriers, transmitting the virus to someone healthy. © Thinkstock Although if you show symptoms of the virus or have a fever, cough or flu then just maintaining a bit of a distance till the symptoms go down is a wise thing to do.
(3) Reorganise Your SurroundingsReorganising is therapeutic not just on an individual level but on a collective front as well. If you live together, you have obviously set up your space together too and you probably don't have enough time to rearrange a few things you've been meaning to for a while. Well, here's your chance to do exactly that. Find a space that needs organising and put your heads together and figure out the best way to do it. It could also be reorganising cupboards, cabinets or shelves or just moving furniture around. If it's an activity done together, it's fun. © Twitter (5) Get A Bit Pet FriendlyWe're all prepping for isolation in our own ways and probably everyone is stocking up because we're not sure how long we'd need to wait this out. In this situation, if you're already dreading being home alone with just one person, you can break the monotony and adopt a dog who can give you both company. It works best for you and the dog who probably needs shelter during these tough times too. Since you'll be home a while, taking care of a puppy would be easier too. Because most shops and markets closing down, dogs outside will have no access to food either, so adopting one or two can help them survive too!

5 Common Mistakes That Most Men Make Before Buying A Perfume

A perfume that lasts long can be really tricky to buy. With thousands of fragrances being available, choosing the wrong one from the lot is actually something that could happen to anyone.  There isn't just the fragrance that you are buying that could lead to the foul-smelling misstep but there are more things associated with it like, its cost, scent, people and your patience level. If you want to avoid these common mistakes, you will finally be able to get the right perfume for your arsenal.  Here's a list of the common mistakes that men make while buying a perfume: 1. Not Taking Enough Time © iStock You decided to lay your hands on perfume but after you tried it, the smell faded in the middle. Usually, you are given the strips to check the fragrance which you should avoid. Instead, spray it on your wrists. Then, take some time, probably move around for a while and then see how the notes unfold. It should meld with your skin's chemistry. This way, it will be easier for you to pick the right fragrance.
2. Limiting Samples Mistakes Men Make While Buying A Perfume When you test these scents, there are two key things to know. Come prepared with a note that you are looking at, for example, woody, musky etc. You should be able to recognise and tell the salesperson exactly what you need, in order to reduce the guessing time. Secondly, test them in a proper manner. Your nose will tire after smelling so many of them. Take intervals and then test it again. It will help determine if the perfume sticks well with you or not. 
3. Neglecting Other Grooming Products © iStock You cannot just work with your perfume as other products in your regime also matter. Considering products that have fragrance add to your perfume as well. Every day, be it your grooming product or your moisturiser, the fragrance interferes with your cologne. The way to make this work is by applying all these products, for example, your hair wax or body lotion before you spray your perfume. Also, never use it immediately after your hot shower. Your scent's fragrance will sustain longer when you follow these steps.
4. Buying Perfume That Smells Good On Others © iStock Your friend bought a perfume and you instantly wanted the same one in your stash but there is a chance, that this perfume might not smell good on your skin. Therefore, it is important to research and check if the perfume that you have liked, is actually melding with your pheromones or not. A true scent will be on your skin no matter what. Hence learning about the notes stands important.
5. Finally, Storing It In The Bathroom © iStock Now that you have finally got hands on the perfume you love, don't just go and store it in your bathroom. This plays up with its longevity and sillage. We find it convenient to use the perfume but since the temperature inside changes, it can actually kill the notes of your perfume. It starts decomposing, changing colour and smells weird if stored at the wrong place. Avoid that and rather store it in cool, dark places.

5 Comedy Movies To Watch With Family While Observing Janta Curfew & Staying Home Today

The quarantine mode is on and while some of us are doing fine because the anti social life was already a way of living for many of us, most of the other people are having an extremely hard time managing their schedules.  Today is the âJanta Curfewâ day and the entire nation is observing it by staying indoors, which basically means we are all locked up with families and suddenly we donât know what to do with all this time and people around us.  So, if you fear your house will turn into a âBigg Boss ka gharâ and lectures from your mom and dad are like background music in real life for you, then here are some light comedies you can stream today with your family.  These movies are available on your OTT platform so weâve picked the one which are easily available for you:  1. Dil Chahta HaiIf you are an independent kid paying your own wifi bill and living life but still have never managed to make one Goa plan without mummy or daddy asking âkyu jaana haiâ, then try watching this today and throw in some emotional blackmail asking if you can finally go once the coronavirus scare is settled. 2. Jai Mummy Di A casual, random watch which can serve dual purpose of entertaining and throwing in a hint to your mom about your alleged affair with the neighbourhood girlfriend. *wink* 3. MubarakaanIf the quarantine has caught up to your senses and things make no sense as your sibling pick up fights and your parents aimlessly scroll on Whatsapp, then just put everyone in a room and stream this mindless comedy which will make you all laugh in chorus.  4. Carry On JattaThis is probably one âgo toâ movie which will make you laugh, no matter what kind of a day you are having. Best part is that this one also has a sequel.

Hindi MediumA family oriented social comedy meant to be watched with your family. The second part of the franchise, sadly, had to be taken off theatres for now but until then, stream this one and enjoy a light watch. 6. Krazzy TabbarIt literally translates to âcrazy familyâ so that should explain why this can be a good watch today. A funny love story with lots of situational comedy scenes thrown in.

This Astronaut Is About To Leave The Earth For 6 Months But Won't Get A Farewell Due To Covid-19

Usually, as astronauts get ready to suit up and sit inside a spaceship to leave the planet, they get a farewell with friends and family members who gather together for a see off. But due to the on-going coronavirus outbreak, a NASA astronaut, who's about to leave the planet for six months will blast off without any family or fanfare. Chris Cassidy will take off from Kazakhstan on April 9, however, he's now expecting to say goodbye to his wife in Russia on Friday i.e., three weeks earlier than planned. © Reuters Chris's wife is apparently going back to Houston due to the coronavirus. Also, one of his three children is trying to get back to the US from New Zealand. He also expects to see a smaller than usual crowd at the launch pad too.
While speaking to The Associated Press cosmonaut headquarters in Star City, Russia, Chris said, "It really is going to be strange". He is already in quarantine ahead of his launch to the International Space Station.  âThe things that are stressing the rest of the world and the rest of America, are the same things that are stressing me right now,â said Cassidy. Chris is a 50-year-old Navy captain and former Navy SEAL. He said, "Iâll have my own interesting story to tell in years to come.â © NASA Usually, a group of people including friends, families, bosses, journalists, etc. jam into a room behind a glass wall to see the astronauts getting into their spacesuits before the liftoff. But it looks like this time there's not going to be anybody.

People Are Saying This Video Game Legend Predicted The Future Again & It's Quite Crazy

Hideo Kojima, for those of you who don't know him, is one of the greatest minds in the world right now. He is popularly known for some of the most popular titles in the history of games like the Metal Gear Solid series, Castlevania, and more. Well, there's a meme circulating around the internet that says Hideo Kojima predicted the future again with his latest game called Death Stranding. Death Stranding is a game that's based in a post-apocalyptic world and it sees our protagonist, played by Norman Reedus, play the characters of a delivery man. © Kojima Productions Obviously, he's not just delivering food in the game. Our task is to make the deliveries of valuable supplies in a world where people are practicing self-isolation and social distancing due to an invisible threat. Yeah, that sounds an awful lot like what's been happening around the world right now.
When the game came out back in November last year, things weren't this crazy and serious. But now that the COVID-19 outbreak has taken a toll on all of us, the Death Stranding world has started to look a lot like the world we're living in right now. © Kojima Productions Seriously, just look out of your window and see if you can see people walking around outside. Because of Janta Curfew, things are looking eerily quiet even in India today.
Look, this might sound outrageous, but a lot of people seem to agree on this. Tyler Fisher from Comicbook also thinks the same. Additionally, a lot of people have realized it and have tweeted about the same as well. Here, check it out.
hold up a sec

right now:
- society is divided along political lines
- sudden onset of a nigh-inescapable illness
- paranoia setting in rapidly
- everyone relying on delivery services to avoid going out

ARE YOU KIDDING ME KOJIMA@Kojima_Hideo pic.twitter.com/P0CoRl4j8W â Nitroidâ (@Nitroid) March 6, 2020 "Hahaha, Ok Kojima!" Kojima in 2019: this game is set in a near future where people live in self isolation hiding from an invisible threat, as a delivery man you play a key role in keeping society alive
Everyone: haha ok kojima â Hal is in the air tonite (@halphelt) March 19, 2020 Avoid contact, guys! In light of recent quarantine efforts and social distancing, Death Stranding takes on a new light for me and seems more prescient than ever in its themes and symbolism. I can also better understand why some only speak through a holographic communicator & want to avoid contact. pic.twitter.com/GKC8cp37Tw â Peter Tieryas (@TieryasXu) March 14, 2020 "Bullshit plot" 5 months ago: What a bullshit Death Stranding plot, you just play a delivery boy in a world where everyone is locked up in the house and can't go outside what is this bullshit??

Today: pic.twitter.com/dMBHA1FF4s â Mimi Moon (@MimiMoonCosplay) March 13, 2020 In case you're wondering when was the last time Kojima predicted the future correctly, it was with a game called Metal Gear Solid 2. He more or less predicted the information age, fake news, echo chambers, and more in that game. It's only a matter time of until people realise that Death Stranding is a lot like what's happening in 2020. Anyway, if you don't agree with this then that's totally fine. But there's no denying that there's a lot of similarities. I mean, lines like, "Oh, It's so hard to form connections when you can't shake hands," No way! Well, it's not too late to pick up the game and play it while you're self-isolating yourself from the world. It's now available for PS4 and it's coming out this year to PC too.
