CID Officer Daya Is Back To 'Break' The Internet With These Hilarious 'Avengers' & GOT Memes

Even before 'Game Of Thrones' or 'Avengers' series came into our lives or existence, there was one show that ruled all our hearts - 'CID'. Watching ACP Pradyuman and his officers Abhijeet and Daya crack each case with precision and catch the criminals was all we looked forward to always. While we loved watching them do their thing, people also loved cracking jokes on Daya and his technique of entering a room. Of all the officers in the team, it was Daya who was loved by people the most for a) *Daya, Darwaza tod do* and b) his slap to make even the scariest criminal accept his crimes. 'CID' ruled the world of television for more than 20 years, before it went off-air. Now, after so many days, suddenly the internet decided to remember officer Daya in its own hilarious way.  In case you haven't noticed already, pictured of a 'sad and upset' Daya is doing the rounds on social media, to express the meltdown they expressed after watching 'Avengers: Endgame' and the initial episodes of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8.  Sadness at its peak after #AvengersEndgame #LokSabhaElections2019 #GameofThrones finishes. pic.twitter.com/573uBOKtsQ — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) April 27, 2019 When you want to break the door but thanos snapped people out, so there is no one to say "Daya darbaza tod"#Avengers #Thanos pic.twitter.com/ZL9rngoKwk — aftabð®ð³ (@biryani_babu) April 27, 2019 Pic 1: After watching #InfinityWar

Thansos Beats Katappa As 'Avengers: Endgame' Becomes The Fastest Film To Enter The 100-Cr Club

Before the release of the final installment in the Avengers series, there were only two movies people were talking about - 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion'. Now, everyone has just one thing on their minds - 'Avengers: Endgame'. Arka Media Works Thanos is the greatest supervillain ever, not just in the Marvel Universe but also in the lives of Bollywood filmmakers, as 'Avengers: Endgame' turned every desi movie to dust with its release. In fact, 'Avengers: Endgame' has entered the 100-crore club in its second day itself. Marvel Studios If a movie can land a Marvel fan in hospital, because she cried uncontrollably while watching it, you can only expect it to reach greater heights and break all the records. On its first day, the movie earned Rs 53.10 crore and became the biggest opener in India, beating the likes of 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion'. On Saturday, it earned Rs 51.40 crore and cakewalked into the Rs 100 crore club in just two days, with Rs 104 crore.  Marvel Studios Even before its release, the movie has been making every desi marvel fan go batshit crazy and its release has only made people lose their minds further.  The Russo brothers' directorial released in 2845 screens in India in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu language, and the movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Brie Larson, among others.

Virat Kohli's Voter ID Card Picture Is Making Us Feel Good About Our Aadhaar Card Photos

Voting is our fundamental right and like I said earlier, the entire nation's fate depends on the tiny mark of blue ink on your fingers. Be it commoners or actors, cricketers and politicians; everyone is busy exercising their right and urging other people to do the same. So is cricketer Virat Kohli.  Instagram Virat Kohli, one of the finest batsmen in the world and RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) captain, is all set to cast his vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections 2019 and he announced the same on his Instagram on Sunday. Sharing his voter ID on Instagram story, Kohli wrote, "Ready to vote in Gurugram on the 12th May. Are you?"   Instagram However, he deleted the stories, probably because his personal information was revealed in public. He later posted only the front side of his voter ID and blurred out the details. Voting in Delhi and Gurugram will be held on May 12.  But, do you know what else is on May 12? The final match of IPL 2019 is in Hyderabad. Although, Virat Kohli's RCB is at the bottom in the point table, if they miraculously manage to enter the finals then Kohli will have a tough time travelling between the two cities. Instagram In other news, at least Kohli's goofy expression on his Voter ID card is making us feel less miserable about our Aadhar card pictures.

3 Exercises That'll Help In Building An X-Mas Tree On Your Back

The erector spinae are the group of muscles that form the Christmas tree shape on your back. That Christmas tree isn't just meant to show off on the competitive bodybuilding stage, but it also means that you have strong lower back muscles as well. Having a strong lower back will not only help you to prevent injuries but also help you with other compound lifts like the deadlift.  Here are the exercises that you should include in your workout routine to make your lower back strong and to build that Christmas tree: 1. Stiff Leg Deadlift To perform this exercise, you need to take an Olympic bar and use an overhand grip (palms facing down). While going heavy in this exercise you can also use wrist wraps. Your torso will remain straight and your knees will be slightly bent. This will be the starting position.  Now, keeping the knees stationary, you will lower the barbell over the top of your feet by bending at the waist while keeping your back straight. You should feel a stretch on your lower back and hamstrings. Remember that this is not an exercise that is recommended for people with any form of lower back issues. Also, it needs to be treated with the utmost respect paying special attention not to round the back forward as you move the torso down; the back should always be straight. Finally, jerking motions or doing too much weight can injure your back. 2. Back Extensions/Hyperextensions This exercise can be performed on a hyperextension bench. Lie face down on a hyperextension bench, tucking your ankles securely under the footpads of the bench. Adjust the upper pad if possible so your upper thighs lie flat across the wide pad, leaving enough room for you to bend at the waist without any restriction. Now while keeping your body straight, cross your arms in front of you. This will be your starting position. You can also choose to hold a weight plate for extra resistance in front of you under your crossed arms. Start bending forward slowly at the waist as far as you can while keeping your back flat. Keep moving forward until you feel a nice stretch on your lower back and you can no longer keep going without a rounding of the back. Slowly raise your torso back to the initial position as you inhale.  3. Seated Rowing To perform this exercise you need access to a low pulley row machine with a V-bar. To begin this exercise, first sit down on the machine and place your feet on the front platform or crossbar provided making sure that your knees are slightly bent and not completely locked out. Lean over as you keep the natural alignment of your back and grab the V-bar handles.  With your arms extended pull back until your torso is at a 90-degree angle from your legs. Your back should be slightly arched and your chest should be sticking out. You should be feeling a nice stretch on your lats as you hold the bar in front of you. Now while keeping the torso stationary, pull the handles back towards your torso.  Keep the arms close to it until you touch the abdominals. Breathe out as you perform that movement. At that point, you should be squeezing your back muscles hard. Hold that contraction for a second and slowly go back to the original position while breathing in. Start doing these exercises and grow strong in them to build a mean X-Mas tree on your back.

Auro Kitchen & Bar's Head Chef Megha Agarwal Is Taking The Male-Dominated Food Industry By Storm

We often don't acknowledge it, but the process of consuming well made food happens to be one of the most sensorially fascinating and fulfilling experiences. Right from the tantalising sights, to evocative aromas and delectable taste, food can sprinkle just the right amount of magic to cast a spell on our senses. Good food can make us savour a great meal by setting us on a culinary journey which puts our taste buds on fire. © Instagram Now, since this is no less than a beautiful form of sorcery, we cannot expect just about anyone to succeed in bringing such culinary marvels to life. But, as luck would have it, not only did we chance upon once such exceptionally talented food-magician, but also managed to pull out some valuable scoop from star-chef Megha Agarwal, who is the Head Chef at Auro Kitchen & Bar. © Megha Agarwal Chef Megha has managed to create her own space and niche in the food industry that is mostly dominated by men, and by her own admission it feels amazing to be where she is right now. Talking about making her own name in the industry, Megha told MensXP that, “It feels empowering to work in the FnB industry and to remove assumptions that it is a male dominated sector, especially when there are so many female chefs around.” But all this success did not come to Megha overnight. Her journey to become a star chef started when she was merely 7-years-old and had made her first toaster pizza. Ever since, she knew that food was her calling. © Instagram So she followed the traditional path and joined a culinary school, and then went on to study with renowned French chef Alain Ducasse for two years, before heading back home and starting her career at ITC Maurya. She went on to work with some of the biggest names in the hospitality industry before joining Auro Kitchen & Bar, and there has been no looking back since. © Megha Agarwal But then we had to ask her about how societal stereotypes expect women to do wonders as cooks, and while most women do manage to pull off a few tricks in the kitchen successfully, the industry itself remains male dominated. Her response to this one came as a welcome sign of positive change. Megha told us that, “The industry is rapidly changing and evolving. More female chefs are being recognised for their work in the kitchen. We are breaking barriers and translating our spaces to fit our narrative and create jobs.” © Instagram Yet there is no denying that nothing in this world comes easy. “From not being taken seriously as a chef, to other chefs assuming that women aren't cut out for the intense physical labour or the erratic work schedule,” the journey has been full of challenges. But Megha adds that, “There is no substitute for hard work. You cannot expect to be treated differently and have to constantly push and prove yourself in the kitchen.” © Megha Agarwal Megha gives aspiring young chefs just one piece of advice, “stay healthy and work hard. There is no substitute for hard work. To anyone thinking of pursuing a career in the kitchen, I'd say - spend a little time in a commercial kitchen (as an intern) because it isn't as glamorous as it seems to be before finally making a decision to pursue this as a full time career option.” © Megha Agarwal Megha has come a long way since the time she has started and become an inspiration to a lot of young and women who wish to don a chef's hat with pride. And like she said, it is her passion, dedication and hard work that has allowed her to live the dream.

Here's Why You're Failing To Get In Shape Like John Abraham Or Vidyut Jamwal

Everyone has an idol that they look up to. We all have that one personality that we absolutely want to look like, be it a sports personality or someone from the fitness industry itself. With the growth of the internet and social media, in particular, we have motivation and inspiration available to us 24-hours a day at just a click of a button, but the fact remains that 99.9 per cent of the population is not able to emulate the physique of the personality that they look up to. Why? Because you only want to look like them without putting in the effort that is required to look the way they look or be as fit, strong or agile as they are. The ideal physique that you are aspiring to achieve come with a certain level of investment in terms of hard work, dedication and time.  © YouTube Let's look at what an athlete or a fitness personality does which a normal person does not. 1. No Quick Fixes The people with the best physiques have been putting in their blood and sweat to achieve the physique for a long, long time. We are talking about years and in some cases, even decades. Compare that to people who want to quit working out because they cannot see their abs popping out in a month or give up because they could not outsize John Abraham after a month of weight training. It is unrealistic and outright stupid, if I am being honest, to think that it will happen in a matter of weeks what took the best athletes out there years to achieve. You need to be in it for the long haul. 2. Plans Ahead & Is Realistic How would you plan on reaching somewhere if you don't know how to get there? You would also have no idea about the time it would take to get there, which again would have you set up unrealistic goals and timeframe. People with best physiques, on the other hand, know where they are, where they want to go, and how to get there. They set up goals and move from goal to goal. Even if they are not looking to compete, they train with a plan rather than just going with the flow. © YouTube 3. Not Have Washboard Abs Year Round People who have achieved drool-worthy physiques know that it is impossible to be shredded 12 months a year and putting on muscle mass is as important as being leaner no matter what your goal is. If you are interested in performance and not the looks side of things, muscle mass becomes much more important for you, as muscular endurance and strength are what's going to help you perform better at your respective sport/activity. Look at it this way, if you want to look athletic, you have to be athletic. Start focusing on performance and body composition will take care of itself. 4. They Do Not Starve Themselves For Years On At A Stretch What most people do not understand is that it is easy to lose fat but hard to gain muscle mass. A major chunk of time goes into doing the latter when we talk about athletes who have achieved something in their respective careers. Losing fat makes you eat less which creates a shortage of energy in the body, which in turn, stops you from training and recovering optimally and any person with half a brain cell should be able to guess that training optimally and recovering from that training, is what is needed to attain the goals that you are trying to achieve.  Conclusion: We all want to be the best versions of ourselves like the people we look up to but are we doing what they are doing to get where they are? Remember, no athlete in this world turned out world class in a day, you HAVE to put in the time and effort needed to get there, otherwise, you are just wasting your time. At the end of the day, it is largely mental, it's about setting a goal and starting on the path to achieving it without ever looking back. When you do that, you strive for constant improvement, nourish and take care of your body and be in control of yourself. Once you do that consistently, you'll come to a realization that how much can you achieve, how there is always a scope for improvement and how much it sucks to live any other way.

It's Cheesy Fries & Wedges That Are Increasing Your Waistline, Not Potatoes

The potato has always been at the receiving end of hatred in the dietary world. The first piece of non-factual advice that comes from your peers, relatives or family members when you are trying to lose weight is "stop eating potatoes". The potato is blamed for so many reasons with some even going to lengths to make ridiculous claims like "you are what you eat". "If you eat potatoes, you will become round like one." © Getty Images Is this potato bashing even justified? Personally, I do not think so. Here's why the potato bashing is unjustified and why should you hop on the #savethepotato train with me: 1. Potatoes Are Low In Calories  Potatoes are actually one of the low-calorie food options you could add to your diet. In terms of calories per 100 grams, potatoes are only 77 calories.  And funnily enough, it has more potassium than a banana. Though not a fair comparison and not even that much of a difference, as bananas per 100 grams have 90 kcals. 2. It Is You Who Makes Potato A High-Calorie Food Like I told, the potato isn't a high-calorie food itself.  But this can changes drastically when the preparation method comes into the picture. Now think about the ways that you consume potatoes, it is in some form of deep-fried food items like french fries, potato wedges, cheesy fries and so on. © Getty Images Let's again compare the calories of all these variants: Potatoes - 75 kcals per 100 grams French fries - 345 kcals per 100 grams Potato wedges - 320 kcals per 100 grams  Cheesy fries - 380 kcals per 100 grams So, it is not the potato to blame but you who deep fries them before eating. 3. Potato Is Very Satiating In a study done by Holt et. al. in 1995, they took 38 carbohydrate-rich foods like fruits, bakery products, snack foods, breakfast cereals etc. and fed it to the subjects. The aim was to understand the effect of these foods on the satiety of the individual with white bread being the standard, thus 100 per cent. At the end of the study, they found out that the potato had the highest satiety index of 323% and the lowest was that of a croissant with a satiety score of 47%. This study was done comparing the foods in isolation which is not how we truly eat but this study makes a good enough claim that why the potato should be your go-to choice when dieting on lower calories. © Getty Images 4. It Beats Rice When It Comes To Dieting Thanks to some good amount of awareness being spread in the fitness industry, people have stopped demonizing rice finally. Now when we compare rice with potato, let's see who ends up winning. Let's say you have a portion of 50 grams of rice in a meal. That comes to approx. 180 kcals with the primary constituent being carbohydrates. For the same 180 kcals, you could consume 250 grams of potatoes and again, it is a source of carbohydrates. Long story short, you will get more food to eat for the same amount of calories and be fuller and more satisfied. Moral of the story: Stop bashing the potato!

1More Quad Driver Earphones Are Out This World & Every Music Fanatic Needs This

Earphones come at various prices but often sacrifice something in order to keep the cost down. In fact, accurate sound reproduction needs multiple drivers to work in tandem to reproduce sound in a specific frequency range. Most speakers do this as it has a woofer driver for bass and tweeters for higher frequencies. Good speakers or earphones also have a mid-range driver to handle frequencies that come in between. 1More has managed to fit four drivers in earphones which is something very rare. Fitting multiple drivers in earphones is a huge challenge simply because there isn't much space. Most earphones just use one driver to handle all of these frequencies which often ruins the sound experience. That's why you can buy earphones for a few hundred rupees. Which is fine for casual listening but utter garbage for audiophiles.  © 1More 1More Quad Driver earphones are probably my favourite pair of earphones right now. I thought the triple driver variant was quite impressive but the Quad driver version takes the cake. These earphones have four small drivers in each of the earbuds. Two armature drivers, a single driver for ultra-high frequencies and a dynamic driver that take cares of bass and mid-range frequencies.  This results in crystal clear sound with much details and with a frequency response of 20 - 40,000Hz. That beats most headphones you can buy in the market right now.  It's Not Only About the Sound  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Today, premium earphones don't only need to sound amazing, they also need to look the part. 1More earbuds are built with premium material that also gives flexing rights to the owner. The earbuds are made of aluminium and are as durable it could be. It has red trims with tungsten accents and are very comfortable to wear. The cable is also built with Kevlar, which is tangle-free and reduces noise (when obstructed with objects or clothing) when being used for making phone calls.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to fit, 1More has given 8 extra pair of tips that will ensure you a perfect fit for your type of ear. The included tips come with a selection of silicon or foam which is always neat to have. The packing also comes with a travel adapter which you can use on planes and a  1/4" male plug.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla You can store all these accessories with the supplied premium leather case which is most useful when you are always on the move. Overall, the earphones come in ultra-luxurious packaging which you can't find anywhere else.  Listening Experience  The listening experience on the 1More Quad Driver earphones was nothing short of impressive. We listened to different genres and even used it to play games on our PC. The bast was solid and not overwhelming and the highs were on point. The sound had incredible detail and crystal clear. It proved that having multiple drivers significantly improved the listening experience. To notice details, our go-to test track is Michale Jackson's “Thriller” as it has the balance required in a song.  The kicks sounded crystal clear while the bassline was not too overwhelming. The main pads and chords sound spectacular as we could pick out each instrument individually.  We noticed a real difference when we plugged in our earphones to our Dolby 7.1 amp on our gaming PC. With surround sound enabled, the 1More Quad Driver could handle sound with great detail. While reviewing Mortal Kombat 11, we could hear sounds in the background and sounds that would fly right over the head. We could also notice birds chirping at the back of the head which is unheard of on earphones. It's probably because these earphones are also THX certified which means watching movies with these earphones is a dream.  The Final Say  The earphones cost Rs 13,499 in India but should be priced at least double for everything it has on offer. It's got great sound, luxurious packaging and great accessories. It can even handle AAA games like 'Mortal Kombat' to deliver the required surround sound experience. If you are looking for premium earphones, the buck stops here.

Here's How One Can Build A Great Gaming PC In India Under Rs 50,000

It's 2019, and gaming on a budget is actually not that hard in today's day and age. Pick your parts wisely, know exactly where to cut corners, and you'll end up with a budget gaming PC build that will do justice to many of the latest games. If you still think it's easier said than done, then continue reading to find out how you can build a great gaming PC under Rs 50,000: 1. Processor: Ryzen 5 2600 - Rs. 12,999 © YouTube For this particular build, we'll be using the Ryzen 2600 to give us the necessary computing power. There's no specific reason behind choosing AMD's Ryzen over Intel's Core processor. It's just that the Ryzen 2600 CPU is a very capable CPU, and it's also a really good option for people who are willing to overclock. The Ryzen 2600 is an ideal mid-range gaming CPU that offers six-cores that can operate at a peak clock speed of 3.9GHz. You can learn more about the CPU here, but in short, it's a great option for gamers and creators alike. BTW, it also comes with a CPU cooler, so you don't have to shell out more money on it. 2. GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 - Rs. 12,499 © Nvidia If it wasn't for Nvidia's great timing, then we'd have probably suggested fitting a GTX 1050Ti in this build. But luckily, the company just launched the new GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, and it's simply great for gamers on a budget. The GPU is capable of running almost all modern titles like 'Apex Legends', 'Fortnite', 'PUBG', etc. at 100 fps, which is really not that bad for a budget build. 3. Motherboard: ASRock B450 PRO4 - Rs. 8,450 © ASRock Picking the right motherboard is very crucial for the build. You need to make sure that the board is compatible and can handle the components that you're planning using. We went with the Asrock B450 PRO4 mainly because we're using a CPU for our build. The board has an AMD A4 socket, which is exactly what we need. The board also has 2 PCIe 3.0 x16, 4 PCIe 2.0 x1, and an of SATA3, M.2, and USB ports. It's a very capable board and perfect for our build. In case you're interested, you can learn more about it here. 4. RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000Mhz - Rs. 3,750 © Corsair The ASRock board, which we are using for this particular build, has 4 x DDR4 DIMM Slots. The maximum capacity of system memory supported by this board 64GB, and that's plenty for a build like this. 5. HDD: Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB Internal Hard Drive - Rs. 2,975 © WD It's really hard to push an SSD for this build under the budget we're working with, so we just went with a WD Blue 1TB HDD. It's the go-to drive of choice that should get you started. You can always add an SSD in the future when you see fit. 6. Cabinet - Corsair Carbide Series 100R CC-9011075 - Rs. 3,099 © Corsair For case, the Corsair Carbide series 100R CC ATX should do the trick. As you can see, it looks simple and elegant, and it comes with all the bells and whistles that you'd need to keep your components up and running. It comes with five fan mounts to keep your PC cool, plus a 120mm fan is included inside the case itself. The case is fitted with Thumbscrew side panels, so you won't need any tools to handle it too. Also, the case has a flush-mounted side panel window, through which you can showcase all your PC components. Yes, we're not using any RGB lighting, but the case will certainly look pretty should you decide to upgrade the lighting later. 7. Power Supply: Corsair CX450 - Rs. 3,440 © Corsair Last, but not the least, we recommend the CX450 450W 80 Plus Power Supply. It can handle up to 450 watts, which is plenty of power for our configuration. Don't worry, we've also made sure that all our components are compatible with each other, so you won't end up blowing up something. Well, if you're keeping tabs on the cost, this PC with the aforementioned components will cost you just above Rs. 47,000. Of course, we haven't included other peripherals for the PC, but you can use that money to splurge on, say, a mouse or a nice pair of earphones. Lastly, we'd like to point out that the prices of these components keep fluctuating. So it's best to keep tabs on Amazon India or your local offline retailers to get the best prices.

Ehsas e gham

محرومِ خواب دیدۂ حیراں نہ تھا کبھی
تیرا یہ رنگ اے شبِ ہجراں نہ تھا کبھی
تھا لطفِ وصل اور کبھی افسونِ انتظار
یوں دردِ ہجر سلسلہ جنباں نہ تھا کبھی
پرساں نہ تھا کوئ تو یہ رسوائیاں نہ تھیں
ظاہر کسی پہ حالِ پریشاں نہ تھا کبھی
ہر چند غم بھی تھا مگر احساسِ غم نہ تھا
درماں نہ تھا تو ماتمِ درماں نہ تھا کبھی
دن بھی اُداس اور مری رات بھی اداس
ایسا تو وقت اے غمِ دوراں نہ تھا کبھی
دورِ خزاں میں یوں مرا دل بے قرار ہے
میں جیسے آشناۓ بہاراں نہ تھا کبھی
کیا دن تھے جب نظر میں خزاں بھی بہار تھی
یوں اپنا گھر بہار میں ویراں نہ تھا کبھی
بے کیف و بے نشاط نہ تھی اس قدر حیات
جینا اگرچہ عشق میں آساں نہ تھا کبھی

کچھ تو ہم بھی لکھیں گے

کچھ تو ہم بھی لکھیں گے ‏کچھ تو ہم بھی لکھیں گے ، جب خیال آئے گا
ظلم ، جبر ، صبر کا جب سوال آئے گا

عقل ہے، شعور ہے پھر بھی ایسی بے فکر
تب کی تب ہی دیکھیں گے جب زوال آئے گا

یوں تو ہم ملائک ہیں ، بشر بھی کبھی ہونگے
دُسروں کے دُکھ پہ جب ملال آئے گا

‏لہو بھی رگوں میں اب جم سا گیا ہے کچھ
آنکھ سے بھی ٹپکے گا جب اُبال آئے گا

دیکھ مت فقیروں کو اس طرح حقارت سے
آسمان ہلا دیں گے جب جلال آئے گا

پگڑیاں تو آپ کی بھی ایک دن اُچھلیں گی
آپ کے گناہوں کا جب وبال آئے گا

شاعری ابھی ہمارے دل کی بھڑاس ہے
بالوں میں جب سفیدی ہو گی کمال آئے گا

‏جس کو مجھ سے کہنا ہے ، جو کچھ بھی ، ابھی کہ دو
خاک جب ہو جاؤں گا تب خیال آئے گا ؟

آج کل کے مسلم بھی فرقہ فرقہ پھرتے ہیں
ایک یہ تبھی ہوں گے جب دجال آئے گا

In A Heroic Late Comeback, Indian Wrestler Bajrang Punia Reclaims Asian Championship Gold

“It ain't over until the fat lady sings,” is probably the weirdest proverb to describe the latest feat achieved by the 25-year-old Indian Wrestler, Bajrang Punia who switched gears in the last few moments of his match against Kazakhstan's Sayatbek Okassov in the finals of Asian Championships in the 65kg category in Xi'an, China. Ever since the world champion Takuto Otoguro decided not to participate for the championships, all eyes were fixed on him, with a nation backing his journey, hoping to see him return to the land with a gold.  His confidence and athleticism during the championships too dictated his form and with the way he was negating his competition on his journey to the final, the gold looked to be quite within his grasp, until he went through a real battle against the Kazakh.  Struggling on the mat against Okassov initially, Punia was trailing his opponent 7-2. His agility and a solid defense were proving to be overwhelming for the Indian warrior but it was also making his exhaust a lot more quickly.  It was only in the final few seconds that the Haryana-fame decided to turn things around in his favour when he launched a quick attack on the Kazakh's legs followed by a three-move combo, collating a total of 10 points in the final minute, winning the gold in the process.  à¤à¤ª सबà¤à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤° à¤à¤¶à¥à¤°à¥à¤µà¤¾à¤¦ सॠà¤à¤² #AsianChampionship2019 मà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤°à¥à¤£ पदठà¤à¥à¤¤ पाया...

According to his coach, Shako Bentinidis, while other athletes get tired and become slow as a match progresses, Punia evaluates his opponents and gets better with time.  “The longer a bout goes on, the better are his chances to win it,” Bentinidis has said before the team had left for the tournament. Such a heroic comeback deserved recognition and his Indian fans were more than generous with the appreciations on Twitter:  WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COMEBACK. FROM TRAILING 7-2, @BajrangPunia WIN ð¥IN 65KG AFTER BEATING OKASSOV 12-7!!

Nvidia'S New GTX 1650 GPU Costs Only Rs 12,999 & It Delivers Modern PC Gaming Graphics

It's only been a few weeks since Nvidia launched its GTX 1660 GPU based on the Turing architecture. And now, the company has just launched a new GPU called the GTX 1650, which carries a price tag of Rs 12,999 in India. The new GTX 1650, in case you don't know, is the third 16-series desktop GPU from the company. With a Rs 12,999 price tag, the GTX 1650 is a perfect entry-level GPU for casual or gamers on a budget. © Nvidia As for the specs, the GeForce GTX 1650 comes with 4GB DDR5 VRAM. It features 896 CUDA cores, a boost clock of 1665MHz, and a total memory bandwidth of 128Gbps. The TDP rating on this particular card is just 75Watts, and it won't need a connector from the PSU as it draws the requisite power straight from the PCI slot. Now, let's talk performance. According to Nvidia, the GTX 1650 will offer twice as much performance compared to something like, say, the GTX 950. So, if you are someone who's using an older GPU from two or three years ago, then this would be a good GPU to look into. Apparently, you can also switch from a GTX 1050 and expect a performance boost. © EVGA As mentioned earlier, the GTX 1650 GPU will go on sale immediately from a bunch of online and offline retailers for Rs. 12,999. However, you may have to shell out a bit more cash depending on what OEMs decide to make. In addition to the GTX 1650 desktop GPU, Nvidia also announced the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 for laptops. You can expect to start seeing the laptops powered by these GPUs in the coming months with a starting price of $800. © Nvidia As for the performance of the 1060 Ti powered laptops, Nvidia says you'll be able to play all modern titles like 'Overwatch', 'PUBG', 'Apex Legends' and 'Fortnite' with frames upwards of 100fps. If you don't mind playing the aforementioned titles at 60fps, then you can also pick up the laptops powered by the GTX 1650. OEMs including Dell, Acer, ASUS Alienware, HP, MSI, etc. will start putting out laptops powered by these GPUs soon. Acer Nitro 5, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G, Dell G5, Gigabyte AERO 15, Lenovo Legion Y7000, etc. are a few of the laptops which you can start seeing in the coming months, according to Nvidia.

Parineeti Chopra Hops Onto The Thrilling Ride Of Her Career With 'The Girl On The Train' Remake

What started off as a successful (sometimes hit-and-miss) strategy for some directors has now become a go-to mantra for Bollywood, whenever they run out of fresh ideas and concepts- remake another movie. And in the huge ocean of official remakes, another movie has now found its way.  After delivering a great performance in 'Kesari' and stepping into the shoes of ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal for her upcoming biopic, Parineeti Chopra is all set to take up another challenging role of her career, as she will reprise the role of Emily Blunt in the official Bollywood remake of 'The Girl On The Train'.  © ‎DreamWorks Pictures 'Te3n' director, Ribhu Dasgupta will be helming this project, the name of which is yet to be announced. The American psychological mystery thriller was directed by Tate Taylor and was an adaptation of Paula Hawkins' bestselling book of the same name.  Emily Blunt was brilliant as Rachel, an alcoholic divorcee, who gets dragged into a missing person's investigation. In fact, she won several awards and nominations for the film. So, naturally, expectations are really high from Parineeti. Hopping onto this thrilling ride! Excited to be a part of #TheGirlOnTheTrain's official Hindi remake.@ribhudasgupta @RelianceEnt @amblin #DreamWorksPictures #TheGirlOnTheTrain pic.twitter.com/0cNNzbc3IL — Parineeti Chopra (@ParineetiChopra) April 24, 2019 Earlier, Parineeti said in a press statement, "I want to do roles that audiences haven't seen me in before and ones that require a lot of prep and homework, which is why The Girl On The Train really worked for me. The character is an alcoholic and a victim of abuse, and I haven't explored anything like her onscreen before". Reportedly, the film is entirely based in the UK and is expected to release in 2020.

5 Absolutely Useless Supplements Your Gym Guru Is Trying To Get In Your System

All of us, at some point, have been swayed by the lure of magical supplements that promise incredible changes to our physique. Whether they were gym owners, gym bodybuilders, local gym gurus or trainers, we've all been duped by them when it comes to supplements. If not, consider yourself lucky! Were these supplements really needed for your progress? Was it worth spending your hard-earned money on coloured alien piss to sip between your workouts? © Getty Images These are the supplements that are pretty much garbage, which your gym guruji may have convinced you to consume: 1. BCAAs: The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are essential, meaning they can't be produced by your body and must be obtained from food. Claims – Prevent Muscle Breakdown, Decrease Muscular fatigue and Soreness. Reality – If you're consuming 1.6 g/kg of Protein from Dietary sources, adding BCAAs to your plan would be equal to burning your money. 2. Glutamine: Glutamine is an Amino Acid too, which is derived from the Protein we eat. Claims – Muscle Building, Increased Growth Hormone & Muscle Recovery. Reality – Required Glutamine can be easily derived from the protein we eat. Most of the extra Glutamine we take via supplements don't even reach the muscles. It can only be helpful in certain situations like – critically ill people, immune system function and gut health. 3. Mass Gainer: Now, this is the supplement which I hate from the bottom of my heart. The reason?  It's useless to the core. You're just paying for the powdered form of carbohydrates and fats which can easily be consumed via delicious food items like bananas, icecreams and pancakes. Now, who on Earth would eat these in powdered form? Claims – Magically increase your muscle mass and weight. Reality – Provides your extra calories in a powdered form which can easily be consumed via normal food. © Getty Images 4. Testosterone Boosters: All of us are aware that Testosterone is the king of all hormones which is required to build muscle. Claims – Magically increase testosterone to unbelievable numbers Reality – Consume foods containing adequate vitamins & minerals, sleep for 8-9 hours and disengage with any kind of harmful addictions. All of this will be more helpful if compared to an ill-dosed testosterone supplement. 5. Dianabol: Dianabol is the legal form of selling oral steroids and my perspective towards people using steroids is neutral. However, taking them without any professional guidance can end up with you possibly losing your life. Claims – Magically increase muscle mass and fast track the process. Reality – Apparently, the claim is right. However, the risk & reward ratio is too high. Could leave you with multiple health risks which may even translate to death. About the Author – Rachit Bir: A strong believer of the no-nonsense approach when it comes to fitness, he has been fortunate enough to learn from the brightest minds in the industry.

Going Crazy With Dieting While Trying To Lose Weight? Here Are 5 Tips To Avoid Being 'Hangry'

Hunger is one of the main reasons people overeat and gain fat. While this is in the context of general eating, hunger pangs are all the more a problem when you are dieting for fat loss. Why is that? When you go on a diet, two of the main hormones related to hunger and satiety go for a toss. The hormone, being leptin, which plays a role in signalling satiety and ghrelin which signals hunger to your brain. © Getty Images When you diet, leptin goes down and ghrelin shoots up. Results? HANGER (hunger+anger)! So, here are five useful tricks that will help you manage hunger while dieting: 1. Drink More Water Studies have shown that drinking water 15 to 30 minutes before a meal reduces your food consumption considerably, especially for sweet or savoury food items which are usually high in calories. At times, we even confuse thirst with hunger. This makes us eat more when we are just thirsty and we increase our calorie intake by doing this. So, drink a glass of water 30 minutes before your meal. 2. Do Not Drink Your Calories Drinking your calories is the easiest way to finish off your daily calorie limit while not feeling full. Liquid calories, as we call them, are your worst enemies on a diet. Why? a. It is easier to drink a lot of them. b. It does not make you full, even one bit. So, if you are drinking normal sodas, juices, sugary teas or energy drinks, cut them out when dieting. 3. Eat More Protein Protein is considered the most satiating macronutrient. In studies comparing diets with different protein intakes, higher protein diets have shown higher dietary compliance and satisfaction compared to the lower protein counterparts. How much protein should you consume during a fat-loss phase? 1.8 to 2.3 grams per kilogram of body weight. 4. Increase Your Fibre Intake Fibre is another thing to consider if you are struggling with hunger pangs during a diet. Fibre is usually a high-volume, low-calorie food. Meaning, fibre-rich foods are low in calories for a relatively huge quantity. And it slows down digestion and delays gastric emptying. So, if you have the feeling of emptiness even after eating food, including some more fibrous carbohydrates by eliminating starchy carbohydrates might just do the trick. 5. Moderate Your Junk Food Consumption © Getty Images Though I am a thorough proponent of flexible dieting, I am also a huge proponent of moderation. Just because your calories play a major role in determining your weight loss or weight gain, does not mean you eat a majority of junk food while losing weight. Yes, it is possible to even eat exclusively junk and lose weight if you keep your calories under check but is it a wise thing to do? Absolutely not! The reason being that these junk food options are high-calorie low-volume food options making you eat very less food and finish off your calorie targets for the day. This hunger will ultimately make you eat more calories defeating the entire process. Majority of the times, keep your foods coming from unprocessed, nutrient-dense, whole foods and occasionally indulge in the foods you love for better adherence and ultimately results.

Exclusive: 'Avengers: Endgame' Box Office Prediction Says Film To Hit A Half Century On Day 1

There's no need to bet on the fact that 'Avengers: Endgame' is surely one of the most anticipated films of the year 2019. Just two days are left for the release and the fans can't keep calm.  If you have booked your tickets well in advance, then you're probably bubbling with anticipation over how the movie will turn out. There's a rush among fans to see the movie on the very first day and if you are a hardcore Marvel fan and you have not been able to book the ticket, we can totally understand your pain.  It's common knowledge that the barometer of any film's success rate is the box office opening. The more the movie mints, the more it attracts the audience to watch it on the big screen. Interestingly, 'Avengers: Endgame' will wrap the storylines that have been shown in the last 21 films. It's the ultimate finale and that's why the craze.  Since the box office is one of the biggest parameters of the success rate of a film, we got in touch with Trade and Film Expert, Girish Johar, to know the Day 1 prediction for Endgame.  © Twitter/girishjohar "The craze for 'Avengers: Endgame' is unprecedented. It's not only in India but we can see it globally. In China, the midnight screenings broke the record of 'Fast and Furious' by three times and that's not really a small thing. It has crushed the previous records and the same is expected in India. Advance bookings have gone berserk and fans have gone crazy. I, honestly, expect mayhem at the box office. They have already cloaked in a million tickets in advance which is great. It will shatter the old box office records and new ones will be set with 'Avengers: Endgame'," Girish said.     "The screenings are yet to be locked by today. I envisage around Rs 50 crores plus on Day 1 including all the languages. The screens are being increased by each passing day. The audience is hungry and wants to see it. Even after ticket pricing being high, fans are still thronging so it shows the craze the people have for the franchise," added Girish.  Are you excited to watch 'Avengers: Endgame' this weekend?

PUBG Made Nearly Rs 6,400 Cr In A Year Since Launch & Most Of It Came From Asia

PUBG is, without a doubt, one of the most popular battle royale titles of all time. Well, the game developer PUBG Corp. just proved its worth by reporting $920 million in revenue in its first full year since the 1.0 launch, which roughly translates to nearly Rs 6,400 crores. Not just revenue, PUBG Corp. also saw huge profits of a whopping $310 million (roughly Rs 2,143 cr). That's an insane figure considering the fact that these numbers were achieved in just a year. Seriously, just imagine how many chicken dinners you could buy! © PUBG Corp. PUBG was apparently most popular in Asia, and it looks like over 50-percent of the game's revenue came from that region. North America and Europe were other big contributors to PUBG Corp's revenues. These numbers, in case you are wondering, came via VG247, and the report noted that the PC version of the game earned the developer $790 million (roughly Rs 5,400 cr) in 2019. Surprisingly, the numbers from the console and mobile versions of the game were similar. © PUBG Corp. We're looking at about $60 million and $64 million for console and mobile, respectively. It's, however, worth noting that PUBG Mobile is developed by Tencent Games, and it's likely to be cashing in the most from the mobile port of the game.
