کنکروں کے سلسلے میں چھوڑ دوں

کنکروں کے سلسلے میں چھوڑ دوں کنکروں کے سلسلے میں چھوڑ دوں
جھیل پر کچھ دائرے میں چھوڑ دوں بدگمانی رہ گئی ہے درمیاں
عمر بھر کے حوصلے میں چھوڑ دوں آنکھ تو دامن بچا کر آ گئی
دل تمھارے راستے میں چھوڑ دوں روگ یہ دل کا بدن تک آ گیا
سوچتی ہوں اب اسے میں چھوڑ دوں
زندگی ہے وہ ،مری عادت نہیں
کس طرح سے پھر اسے میں چھوڑ دوں
کچھ لکیریں بن رہی ہیں زیست میں
کیا اسے بھی حاشیے میں چھوڑ دوں
کیا کہا !اب ساتھ مشکل ہو گیا
تم کہو تو راستے میں چھوڑ دوں

Akshay & Kartik Founded 'Log 9 Materials' & It's A Revolution In The Field Of Nanotechnology

The desire to build something of their own and focus their grey cells honed by academic excellence in the field of technology, made two friends set out on a very innovative journey, which could change how the world views Indian technology.  Akshay Singhal has been working in the field of Nanotechnology for the last 7 years and hold great knowledge of Nanotechnology and Material Science. Along with co-founder Kartik Hajela, the duo set out to build Log 9 Materials from a lab set up in Akshay's backyard. © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is one of our country's leading Nanotechnology companies that specializes in Graphene. So, while Akshay looks after overall research and operations of Log 9 Materials. Kartik takes care of the commercial and market introduction aspect of the products that are launched by the company. However, the duo swears by Graphene and the immense potential it holds. What Is Graphene? © Mensxp Graphene is the most advanced form of Carbon that exists in this world, which was discovered in 2004. Related to graphite at the core, but Graphene is different in properties. It is more conducting than copper and stronger than steel! It has such diverse properties that can be put to use in different areas across the board. What Does Log 9 Material Do? The first product that they launched when they were in college, was a cigarette filter called PPuF. Next, they began to explore the oil filtration domain, and the findings so far have been very promising. They came up with the Log9 Pad which is laced with graphene, which can bring about a positive change during oil spills by absorbing the oil spilt on the water surface. © Mensxp However, their latest product in the pipeline is the Metal-Air Battery. Kartik says, “The battery is still a working prototype and we are working on it. However, the essence of the technology comes in E.V.s.” Yet, the challenges related to belief have been real, both from the side of investors as well as consumers. Because both investors and consumers have a hard time placing their faith, that something of such potential can be developed and manufactured in India. Life at Log9 © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is a team of 34 people from engineering backgrounds, and they have scientists as well as marketing wizards. The company seeks people from the said background because regardless of what they do, they need to have technical competency. The average of the team is around 26 and most of them come from materials, chemical or nanotechnological background. These committed and ambitious people have come on board to innovate and build something that would impact the world. © Mensxp Akshay and Kartik want aspiring entrepreneurs to take that leap of faith, if they have faith in their own ideas and know that it will work. As for Akshay he says, “if you really want to do something, do it today rather than tomorrow. Also, hold your ground. Don't buy into or accept whatever is offered, but hold your ground and things will fall into place.”

3 Main Qualities Every Man Should Have To Be A Good Father

If you're already sealing your future right now, I am sure you've decided what you really want.  It's rather simple to foresee something but a tad difficult to live by the facts of it. What I mean is, if you're building your future, you obviously want financial security, a family, a good house and everything else that adult life needs for you to sustain and be happy all at once.  But apart from all that, there are a few things that need vital attention more than anything else. There are certain parameters you should cross while deciding a future and it's okay to delve into them from time to time. © Twitter If having kids is on your agenda, then you already know how many you'd like to have and what kind of value system you'd instil within them. But the most crucial thing to think about is what kind of a father will you be. Being a father is the most important role you can ever don and if you're certain of being a father and raising good kids, then you have to be sure about the qualities you possess to make you someone your kids look up to. Here are 3 main qualities every man should have to be a good father: (1) He Is Protective While the sense of protection for the next of kin is innate, it's a quality not all men possess. Being protective is, of course, inherited with the association you have with people. Most men are very protective of their friends, especially women friends. Not because they like them but because they treat them as someone they need to protect.  It's not just women but he takes care of everyone he is close to and that is one quality that transcends and reflects in his association with his kids. He will always set boundaries for them and protect them from anything and everything. © Pintrest (2) He Is Trustworthy That may sound ambiguous but most men, you can trust with your eyes closed, make for good fathers. That's because he will never turn his back on anyone, especially family, when in time of need. If you're the kind of guy who has stuck through the toughest times and been there for your friends and family, then be assured you'll do the same with your future family too. © Pintrest (3) He Is Patient & Encouraging If you've always been a source of encouragement for your friends and family, at any given point in time, you're definitely going to do the same for your kids too. Be it a football match or a test of some form, you'll always be there encouraging them and that's what children need the most.  Apart from encouragement, children also need a lot of patience. There are very few men who're good listeners and are patient at the same time. If you spend time listening to someone's problems and give them advice patiently, you're already on your way to becoming a good dad. © Pintrest Apart from these three qualities, of course, men have to be sensitive enough to perceive a child's mind and also take steps to become an affluent teacher in their lives. So, if you're looking to become a good father, start fostering these qualities and try them out on your friends and family, because only if you have them now, you'll be able to impart them to your children in the future.

Mehul Choksi Submits His PhD Thesis On PM Modi And No, Not That Mehul Choksi

It's a good day for irony today, isn't it? Mehul Choksi wrote a PhD thesis on PM Narendra Modi. Yep.  Don't worry, we're not talking about Nirav Modi's uncle here, but just a student from Surat who happened to have the same name. From Surat's Veer Narmad South Gujarat University, this Mehul Choksi is a lawyer who previously graduated with Political Science. Recently, the innocent Mehul Choksi submitted his thesis on the topic “Leadership Under Government: Case Study of Narendra Modi”, for which he surveyed about 450 people, according to ANI. While talking to ANI, he said, “The questionnaire had a total of 32 questions. After tabulating the answers given by 450 people, it was found that 25 per cent believed that Modi's speeches are most appealing while 48 per cent were of the view that Modi's political marketing is the best.” Surat-based student Mehul Choksi has successfully completed his PhD thesis on Narendra Modi

Dinesh Karthik Scored 29 In Just 8 Balls To Win Nidahas Trophy Vs Bangladesh On This Day In 2018

In what was considered to be one of the most controversial tri-series of 2018, the Nidahas Trophy between India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka saw a rare show of skills, patience and explosive batting when Indian wicket keeper-batsman, Dinesh Karthik took control of the final, deflated the Bangladeshi bowling line-up and won the trophy for the Men in Blue exactly one year ago, today. Returning to the top roster after a long gap, the tri-series was more of a test for the then 32-year-old, a question of whether he's still got what it takes to be a part of the best cricket team in the world.  While India managed to make it to the final of the series without requiring a lot of help from the righty, skipper Rohit Sharma (https://www.mensxp.com/topic/rohit-sharma.html) and the squad demanded a miracle of an innings by him to be able to win it all, late in the game.  When Karthik entered the field after Manish Pandey's dismissal, India required to score 34 runs off the last two overs. The need for Karthik to hit big shots was of utmost importance as his co-batsman Vijay Shankar was struggling to connect the deliveries with his bat.  Karthik, however, had different plans altogether. Stepping on the batting crease in the 19th over, he scored 22 runs off Rubel Hossain's deliveries while also sending the last ball for a maximum to bring the trophy to India.  "Really happy to come out of this performance. Really happy for the team. We've played really well in this tournament and to not win the final would have been unfortunate. It was not that easy to bat there,” said a modest Dinesh Karthik after the game who was also named the Man of the Match for his short yet impactful innings.

The company has launched the Alienware Area-51m, a super-powerful and an upgradeable gaming laptop, along with the thin-and-light Alienware m15. Alienware Area-51m Dell's Alienware Area-51m is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful gaming laptops that are available in the market today. It's the world's first notebook to come with upgradeable hardware including CPUs and GPUs. At any given time, users can swap out the components like RAM, Wi-Fi card, storage, CPU, GPU, and more.

Indian Special Olympic Contingent Is Atop The Medal Tally With 30 Golds But Who Cares, Right?

The Indian contingent for the 2019 Special Olympics, which is currently taking place in Abu Dhabi, is atop the medal tally with 30 gold, 33 silver and 32 bronze medals in events ranging from roller skating, powerlifting to table tennis. Such is the versatility of Team India. But, who cares, right? The fact that 19-year-old powerlifter Manali Manoj Shelke failed thrice, redetermined her resolve, and finally succeeded in crossing her hurdles with just a little bit of persuasion by her coach, will mean absolutely nothing to us in not more than a couple of days when the Indian Premier League (IPL) begins. Special Olympics athlete Manali Manoj Shelke shows us what a true athlete is  pic.twitter.com/H2XkzIHnux — Athlete Swag (@AthleteSwag) March 15, 2019 All the effort put in by the young prodigy will be clouded by the fireworks of cricket, the sport that has achieved 'celebrity status' in a nation which takes immense pride in the diversity it possesses. No hate towards the “gentleman's game” though. The game has led to providing a living (a very luxurious one at that) for a lot of athletes, giving deals worth lakhs and crores of rupees to these players, some of whom have not even played a single game at a noteworthy level. But that's okay, right? In some days, names of Special Olympians like Supreet Singh, Rishabh Jain and Priya Prakash Gaba who, despite their disabilities, brought home the greatest laurels that they could, will be nothing more than a Google search. Hey, if they are lucky enough, maybe their names will appear in one of the questions in the next season of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. Who knows? Who remembers Ranvir Singh Saini, the athlete diagnosed with autism at the age of two, who became the first Indian to win the gold in a golfing event? Who can recollect the memories of the powerhouse of a sportsperson in Phoolan Devi, who bagged yet another gold medal in powerlifting (bench press) not too long ago at the 2015 Special Olympics 2015 in Los Angeles, USA? Four days of mild to no news coverage and maybe a couple of retweets about how they have made their country proud, that's all they are worth. That's exactly what they had signed up for when they stopped feeling sorry for themselves and took up sports in this country. But, they are no cricketers so, obviously, they have no legacy. They are not worthy of well-documented stories to tell the future generations, but who cares?

Miles Away From India, Hasan Minhaj Still Makes More Sense Than Arnab Ahead Of Lok Sabha Polls

A couple of years back, a relatively unknown – at least in the Indian subcontinent – Hasan Minhaj furthered the politician-comedian parentification (don't look up the dictionary; the meme below explains the meaning of this word better) through his White House correspondents' dinner address. He took digs at the bigotry of Donald Trump & Co, but that didn't make much of an impact in India because, of course, we're stuck in deep shit of our own. © 9gag Over the course of this weekend though, the American comedian of Indian origin finally turned towards the subcontinent in an outright courageous, half-an-hour long episode about the upcoming Indian general assembly elections, on the second season of his Netflix original 'Patriot Act'. And since it touched a lot of nerves, India is kinda…umm abuzz. “Since [Narendra] Modi came to power, India has grown more hostile to minority groups. There's been a resurgence in religious nationalism, specifically Hindu nationalism, the idea that India is a Hindu nation,” opens the monologue. Ha! How dare? A bunch of trolls on my Twitter, and some of you reading this on MensXP (judging by the quality – or the lack of thereof, of a lot of comments on our Facebook page), would disagree. But the bad news for you guys is that he backs it up with solid facts (not Whatsapp forwards and 4Chan theories) to tell you how almost 300 people have been physically assaulted (including the 50 killed) in cow-related violence in India. But I don't expect this lot to understand, let alone be empathetic. After all, I was called a 'cow-eater' just last week on a metro ride to work, because I had put on a kurta (serious offence in this day and age of pigeonholed points of view). So Hasan's Pakistani (then Qatar and then Iran) spy joke hits home instantly. Me reading the comments on the latest episode. https://t.co/dSUYanFAuD pic.twitter.com/btFPPyvoE4 — Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) March 18, 2019 That's not the only talking point from the episode. An unflinching Minhaj goes on to poke fun at the Indian TV media community that is drawing the ire of international compatriots, especially for its role in the coverage of the recent Indo-Pak tensions. More TV anchors let out war cries than the concerned people and more TV studios were turned into battlefields than the actual ones. If truth be spoken, sane debates – both on air and off it, seem like a distant memory. Trust me, I'm an ex-Muslim man in the 'media business,' and get to physically interact with maybe more people than the average Indian bhakt. In his own style, Minhaj also interviews Indian National Congress' outspoken Member of Parliament, Shashi Tharoor for the episode (FYI, he failed to get a response from the Bharatiya Janata Party and, going by his Twitter handle, Chowkidar Narendra Modi, 'who is the first PM in the country to never hold a press conference'). The comedian goes on to revive the age-old joke of the direct proportionality between an Indian politician and the number of criminal charges against them. For crying out loud, he confronted Tharoor about his wife's murder during their interview. It's a real moment of pride when this is the actual state of Indian media at present. And finally, he also addresses the He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named of Indian politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) (yes, my name is Khan and I'm not a terrorist). Minhaj calls upon their problematic history and Narendra Modi's close ties with them, with reference to the rise of right-wing politics across the world in the recent past. Apart from Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adiyanath's 'Aap Ki Adalat' appearance with Rajat Sharma (another TV anchor with dicey political ties), former chief MS Golwalkar deciding to name his book 'A Bunch of Thoughts' also became the butt of his jokes. I didn't listen. #NowStreaming pic.twitter.com/7fnuDuaImW — Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) March 17, 2019 The Twitter troll army, surprisingly, did stay away from going all-out in harassing Minhaj (at least in the first 24 hours of the episode's release), despite him poking ample fun at Modiji & Co. That's, in some ways, a testimony to the narrative's middle-of-the-road approach, and in a lot of ways an unlikely masterclass for Indian TV media. Well, these were my bunch of thoughts on the show and how Minhaj's rational, hilarious, and neutral take on the Indian political climate, and the dire state of our TV 'journalism'. Without further spoilers, here is the entire episode; check it out.

As Federer & Djokovic's Era Nears Its End, 2019 Has Seen 19 Champions In First 19 Men's Finals

Success is something everyone strives for. Something for which people pour in all their hard work. And when it comes to finding success in sports, it's on a different level altogether. Always finding ways to improve, players and teams tend to give their best at every stage. Off lately, this immense level of competition has surfaced in the tennis circuit. Every player in the ATP Tour circuit has struggled their way to the top in some or the other tournament. Be it newcomers like Alex De Minaur, Laslo Djere or well-established players such as Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer, everyone has had their share in the record. It's probably for the first time that we are seeing 19 different champions in all the 19 tournaments held on the ATP circuit. It's really inspiring to see true competition and not just one player winning it all. 18 finals, 18 different champions on the #ATP Tour this season. Will Federer be the first to get to two titles or will Thiem be No.19? Via @ATPMediaInfo pic.twitter.com/4qtox7Mckd — TennisNow (@Tennis_Now) March 17, 2019 Last season, we witnessed a similar situation where every tournament on the tour was won by different players, but soon the streak came to an end when the 'GOAT', Roger Federer, won the Rotterdam Open right after grabbing his record 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. Unlike the last season, it has been more ruthless for all the players this time around. Starting with Roberto Bautista Agut winning the Doha Open, today, it added Dominic Thiem, the 19th winner to the list, after his epic comeback win over Federer in the Indian Wells Final. Everyone thought this streak would be broken again by the Swiss Maestro but the breathtaking gameplay of the 'Dominator,' stole the show by 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 win and registered his name in the history books. © AP Another great thing about this season is that the title holders include a whole lot of young guns who won their first title on the tour. Starting off with Minaur winning in Sydney and Tennys Sandgren bagging the Auckland Open title, the list is followed by Juan Ignacio Londero in Cordoba, Reilly Opelka in New York, Laslo Djere in Rio and lastly, Radu Abolt and Guido Pella in Delray Beach and Sao Paulo respectively. The domination of the young lads on the tour can be taken as a warning for the established ones to pull up their socks as the competition would just get more fierce from here.  With the next tournament being the Miami Open, let's hope we get to witness the rise of a new champion.

Digging

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pin rest; snug as a gun.
Under my window, a clean rasping sound
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground:
My father, digging. I look down
Till his straining rump among the flowerbeds
Bends low, comes up twenty years away
Stooping in rhythm through potato drills
Where he was digging.
The coarse boot nestled on the lug, the shaft
Against the inside knee was levered firmly.
He rooted out tall tops, buried the bright edge deep
To scatter new potatoes that we picked,
Loving their cool hardness in our hands.
By God, the old man could handle a spade.
Just like his old man.
My grandfather cut more turf in a day
Than any other man on Toner's bog.
Once I carried him milk in a bottle
Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up
To drink it, then fell to right away
Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods
Over his shoulder, going down and down
For the good turf. Digging.
The cold smell of potato mould, the squelch and slap
Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
Through living roots awaken in my head.
But I've no spade to follow men like them.
Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests.
I'll dig with it.

What Do Women want

I want a red dress.
I want it flimsy and cheap,
I want it too tight, I want to wear it
until someone tears it off me.
I want it sleeveless and backless,
this dress, so no one has to guess
what's underneath. I want to walk down
the street past Thrifty's and the hardware store
with all those keys glittering in the window,
past Mr. and Mrs. Wong selling day-old
donuts in their café, past the Guerra brothers
slinging pigs from the truck and onto the dolly,
hoisting the slick snouts over their shoulders.
I want to walk like I'm the only
woman on earth and I can have my pick.
I want that red dress bad.
I want it to confirm
your worst fears about me,
to show you how little I care about you
or anything except what
I want. When I find it, I'll pull that garment
from its hanger like I'm choosing a body
to carry me into this world, through
the birth-cries and the love-cries too,
and I'll wear it like bones, like skin,
it'll be the goddamned
dress they bury me in.

There is another sky

There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;
Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields -
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
Where not a frost has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum:
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!
