The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) declares a list of revised salaries for the all the members of the Indian cricket team from all three formats of the game every year and so the rest of the people of the Indian population get awestruck by the sheer amount of money that is being paid to Virat Kohli and the rest of the Men in Blue.
As the BCCI comes out of a year of difficult situations presenting themselves in front of their eyes thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the Indian cricket board has once again disclosed how much King Kohli and his men will be earning between October 2020 and September 2021, and the numbers are truly enormous.
ALERT: BCCI announces annual player retainership 2020-21 - #TeamIndia (Senior Men) for the period from October 2020 to September 2021.
Payment structure: Grade A+ : INR 7 Cr Grade A : INR 5 Cr Grade B : INR 3 Cr Grade C : INR 1 Crhttps://t.co/WgtmO7pIOv pic.twitter.com/ycnPcXPYJu — BCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2021
According to the on-going system, the Indian cricket board has divided their pay scale into four major categories and have placed the various members of the roster under them according to their form and performance during the previous year. A+ Category:Grade A+ : @imVkohli, @ImRo45, @Jaspritbumrah93 — BCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2021
There exist three positions in the topmost level or the A+ Category and the selected candidates for them are all no-brainers. Skipper Virat Kohli is accompanied by his vice-captain Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. The three megastars will earn a cheque of Rs. 7 cr. during the next year. A Category:Grade A: @ashwinravi99, @imjadeja, @cheteshwar1, @ajinkyarahane88, @SDhawan25, @klrahul11, @MdShami11, @ImIshant, @RishabhPant17, @hardikpandya7 — BCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2021
Belonging to the second highest level, the players in the A Category go on to earn an annual package worth Rs. 5 cr. This category consists of the major lot of the national cricket team and includes Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya.
Two years ago, Shikhar Dhawan was downgraded from the A+ to A Category while Pant was promoted to this category after his phenomenal performance during the 2018-19 Border Gavaskar Trophy back in Australia. B Category:Grade B: @Wriddhipops, @y_umesh, @BhuviOfficial, @imShard, @mayankcricket — BCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2021
Wriddhiman Saha, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur and Mayank Agarwal make it into the third category and stand to make Rs. 3 crore each. C Category:Grade C: @imkuldeep18, @navdeepsaini96, @deepak_chahar9, @RealShubmanGill, @Hanumavihari, @akshar2026, @ShreyasIyer15, @Sundarwashi5, @yuzi_chahal, @mdsirajofficial — BCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2021
The bottom level of the pay scale inclues Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Shubman Gill, Hanuma Vihari, Axar Patel, Shreyas Uyer, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Mohammed Siraj.
We have to mention the fact that these are the annual salaries that these cricketers stand to earn just from BCCI. Players like Virat Kohli also earn a crazy amount of money from the deals they sign with their numerous sponsors, some of which go beyond their annual salaries with the board.
Case in point: Virat Kohli's 8-year Rs 100 Cr. deal with the sportswear giant Puma that pays the athlete an outrageous Rs. 12.5 Cr. every year. View the full article
The Delhi Capitals may not have won the match against Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals on Thursday, however, their skipper Rishabh Pant surely made some new fans with his wits and cunningness with the hopes of avoiding a massive fine as ‘Delay In Game’ penalty.
Worried of being slapped with a Rs 12 lakh penalty based on the new, stricter rules established by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the wicket-keeper batsman quickly washed his hands of any possibilities of getting in trouble.

During Delhi Capitals’ fielding, the on-field umpire halted the game to check whether the allowed number of players were in fact within the 30-yard circle or not. This is when Pant’s best friend on the field, the stump mic, picked up his voice as he walked up to the official and told them that this delay was not taking place because of him.
"That's one minute being taken by you, umpire," Pant’s voice was heard by the fans who were watching the match live and the fans were quick to talk about it:
"That one minute taken by you, umpire!" Rishabh Pant on the slight delay from umpire's end in Ashwin's over#RRvsDC — Rahul Pandey (@sportstoryguy) April 15, 2021Rishabh Pant is a proper character. I've never seen a cricketer telling umpire to hurry up. In other words, he's saying he won't accept responsibility for time lost due to umpire's time wasting actions.. #RRvDC — Tat'uRadebe (@hlubizer) April 15, 2021Rishabh Pant needs to be just that extra careful. What if the umpire fimes him for that chatter? #RRvDC #IPL #IPL2021 — Funny Gavaskar (@FGavaskar) April 15, 2021Pant: This one minute is taken by you umpire.

Walking to the middle of the Wankhede Stadium with his team struggling at 37 for 4, the southpaw went on to score 51 off 32 deliveries and and guided the total to a relatively respectable of 147.
As far as the ‘delay in game’ fine is concerned, the BCCI had reached into the pocket of Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the same cause during the match against the Delhi Capitals in Mumbai on April 10.

After losing their second match of the season, the Delhi Capitals now find themselves at the very middle of the IPL Points Table, at the number four spot with, just above the Rajasthan Royals and under Punjab Kings. View the full article
Beards are notoriously fickle—from maintaining the right style and length to dealing with your genes. And while growing up managing facial hair wasn’t exactly a part of the curriculum either.
So making decisions about shaving can open you up to a plethora of grooming questions. What kind of trimmer should I use? How often should I shave? Which beard oil is right for me? Am I using the right kind of shampoo to clean my beard? And why, oh God why, does it never stop itching?
Overwhelming, isn’t it? And finally, when you get it right, something goes wrong. Probably because of these bad beard habits you didn’t know you were making.
__ECOMLOOKS__2861__ The BottomlineThese habits may seem harmless but their impact is not.
By making small changes in your grooming routine, you can achieve the beard you’ve always wanted and save yourself from troubles like beard dandruff, itching and acne.

The joy of summer is swiftly stolen by the very things that make it so enjoyable. Extending your stay in the sun will turn breezy hair frizzy, dewy skin greasy and happy feet sweaty.
The increased humidity will shamelessly destroy the underarms of your neatly pressed cotton shirt before you can reach your destination. In short, summer is unforgiving. It makes everything feel sweaty and itchy, starting with your underarms. But sweat alone isn’t the culprit here.
To save you the trouble this summer, we’ve decided to talk about the real reasons for itchy and smelly armpits. 1. Ingrown HairWhen the hair starts to curl back into the skin as it grows, it causes red or pink bumps and inflammation around the hair. These can be itchy and painful.
The problem worsens for those who shave their armpits instead of trimming or have thick, coarse hair. Solution:Trimming, using a sharp razor, exfoliating the area once or twice a week and usign warm water can help prevent ingrown hair and bumps.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1221__ 2. Excessive SweatThe greatest misconception about sweat is that it smells. But the nutrient-rich fluid alone has no odour. It’s only when sweat comes in contact with the bacteria on the skin’s surface that your unique stench becomes obvious to the person sitting next to you.
The bacteria work towards breaking down the acids in your sweat and begin to emanate a foul smell. Solution:Bring your A-game on to the shower. Give the areas with the highest concentration of apocrine sweat glands—chest, undercarriage, armpits—a thorough clean.
To stop the bacteria from festering, use a body wash that’s free of harmful chemicals and towel off the area until bone dry.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1409__ 3. Heat Rash Heat rash aka prickly heat can be characterised as the little red bumps that appear in the crease of the elbow, on the chest, in the armpits. Best known for itching like hell and destroying the possibility of fun.
Heat rash is caused by an obstruction in the sweat ducts. It impels sweat to leak into the skin and trigger inflammation.
Most doctors advise sufferers to simply limit their time in the sun or stop sweating. But that doesn’t seem like a practical solution especially for the folks living in a country that’s so loved by the heat—India. Solution:First up, don’t scratch it. Discard all the occlusive (pore-clogging) and sticky skincare products, especially those loaded with fragrance. Let the clothes made of breathable cotton fabric take over your seasonal wardrobe.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1410__ 4. Ingredient SensitivityNot many products come in contact with your underarms but they’re a sensitive area.
Chemical-packed deodorants can cause irritation resulting in redness, bumps and itching. Solution:While washing your pits you disrupt the protective barrier of the skin. This allows irritants to cause itchiness. So after your shower, let your underarms dry and wait for about 15 minutes before applying deodorant.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1411__ 5. Your DietThe foods you consume in excess will have an effect on the flavour of your perfume. Garlic, onion, spices, alcohol, red meat and fatty foods that are hard to metabolise contribute to your body odour, so try to eliminate these from your diet and natch, use a deodorant.
__ECOMPRODUCT__668__ The BottomlineYour body is covered by more than 2 million sweat glands and they do everything to make themselves known during summer.
You can’t stop the natural procedure of sweating but you can employ these methods to eliminate itchy and sweaty armpits.

Remember the popular scene from the Bollywood rom-com Pyaar Ka Punchnama where an irritated Chiku (Nushrat Bharucha) asks Anshu (Kartik Aaryan) to CONCENTRATE, as she explains him different shades of pink?
Raise your hand if you relate to an Anshu and don't know about the different pink or pastel shades. Also, raise your other hand if you have been calling all checkered patterns in different shapes and sizes as checks. Now, if both your hands are up give yourself a high-five, because you are not alone.
Men’s wardrobe often is stuffed with shirts and trousers in all types of checks, but they perhaps don’t know what a particular pattern is called.
Here’s our guide on different kinds of checkered patterns and ways to incorporate it in your staple wardrobe. 1. Graph CheckGraph check is the most basic type of check pattern that has evenly shaped checks formed by thin bands of a single colour on a light fabric looking just like a graph paper. A type, we feel, is soothing to look at and is perfect for the summer season.
Add a laid-back vibe to your weekend look by bringing in this cotton shirt to your collection. Accentuate your look with dark coloured trousers or chino shorts and loafers.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1402__ 2. Plaid Or TartanPlaid, also called Tartan has bold colourful stripes criss crossing each other, usually in muted tones. Men often call anything plaid as flannel but flannel is the name of the soft woven fabric on which plaid pattern is made.
With lockdowns and quarantining making lazy dressing more socially acceptable, opting for something like this super stylish and comfortable night suit set would be an investment.
__ECOMPRODUCT__496__ 3. HoundstoothHoundstooth, a popular pattern often spotted in furnishing upholstery, suit fabrics and long coats is a pattern formed by broken or uneven checks that resemble a dog’s tooth.
If you are kicked to own something in this very English checkered pattern, a bomber jacket would be a valuable addition to your staple wardrobe.
__ECOMPRODUCT__785__ 4. GinghamTraditionally used for making table linens and aprons, Gingham check has a full pattern of checks in two or more small similar sized squares – one colour is always white and the other often is a shade of red, green, or blue.
Considering the ever rising COVID cases around the nation, investing in bandana masks would be a wise choice and a fun way to bring a little bit of gingham to your everyday dressing.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1403__ 5. Shepherd’s CheckThis pattern is quite similar to gingham check but is usually a black and white pattern. Shepherd check is often set against twill fabric.
Give a summer spin to your shepherd check dressing with this long cotton shirt. Pair this piece with ripped denim and casual sneakers and rock this pick of the season with confidence and style.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1404__ 6. Argyle ChecksUsually spotted in socks and sweaters, this is an allover pattern of diamonds overlapping on a woven fabric.
An evergreen pattern, anything in an argyle check can work as a staple piece in your wardrobe. Consider this blue argyle checked shirt featuring a cutaway collar and curved hem to add oodles of style to your casual look. Layer this shirt with a classic black t-shirt and washed denims to steal the show.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1405__ 7. Pin Or Mini CheckSimilar to gingham and shepherd check, this pattern has pin-sized thick stripes crossing each other very closely, forming checks that look like dots from a distance.
If you don’t wanna fully commit to mini check pieces, consider this smart shirt with mini check patch detailing. From a night party to summer lunch dates, this shirt teamed well with your favourite denims will suit all your occasions well.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1406__ 8. Madras CheckSimilar to that of plaid and tartan, Madras check is a pattern with uneven checks formed by thick bands of bright colours crossing each other.
A shirt in Madras check can do wonders to your layer dressing game. Throw it on an all-white outfit to work a summer look or an all-black outfit to make the look more evening friendly.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1407__ 9. Windowpane CheckWindowpane checkered patterns have thin stripes crossing each other to form patterns of pane on a window.
Add dollops of brightness to your quarantine wardrobe or a boring Google meet with this red windowpane check shirt. A peppy number that's handy across the calendar year, we feel.
__ECOMPRODUCT__1408__ The BottomlineChecks make for an essential part of a man’s wardrobe and a little knowledge about what your favourite checkered pattern is called will only make your staple wardrobe building process easy.

Netflix's latest offering in the serial killer genre is The Serpent, which follows the story of serial killer Charles Sobhraj. It has been a big hit with the masses.

Old habits die hard but looks like finding true love changes everything. Last year when the pandemic broke, India was leading porn consumption in the world and various reports cited a 95% increase in consumption. As per the statistical data made available, India, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, and the USA were on top of the list. Pornography in a marriage or a committed relationship can either harm or strengthen the bond, based on mutual consent. According to some people, couples who enjoy watching porn together are open about their needs and desires and are able to alleviate the guilt or the shame attached with consuming porn. For some, however, it can be an area of worry as many people are uncomfortable with accepting their partner watching porn. Well, one size never fits all, so it's best for a couple to decide what works for them. View the full article
People all across the globe have been through so much due to COVID-19 and once again the numbers in India have started rising dismally. However, people are not staying indoors. We see new instances every day where social distancing norms are going for a toss.
Now, a similar scary incident took place in Andhra Pradesh's Kurnool district where thousands of people were seen celebrating New Year- Ugadi. Bringing an end to the five-day-long festival they were seen ending it with 'Pidakala Samaram' in Kairuppala village.
The crowds were seen without masks on top of each other flouting social distancing norms.
ANI shared the video of the same saying, “#WATCH Social distancing norms violated at 'Pidakal war', during which cow dung cakes are hurled by two sides at each other on the next day of Ugadi, in Kairuppala village, Kurnool district yesterday.”
Check out the video here-

During the celebrations, thousands of villagers split into two groups who are devotees representing families of Veerabhadra Swamy and Kalikadevi to beat each other. They throw cow-dung cakes as part of the Ugadi celebrations on each other in connection with the mythology behind the marriage.
Here’s what people on the internet have to say about this-

The 'Pidakal Samara' has been celebrated for generations as a part of our traditions.”
According to Kurnool SP, a notice was sent to the organizers ahead of the festival to follow all COVID-19 guidelines during the celebrations.
The crowd was asked to wear a mask and maintain social distancing and also gathering should not be more than 100 people as mentioned in the state's COVID Unlock 5.0 guidelines. Now, action will be taken against people who flouted the rules.

Virat Kohli was recently reprimanded by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for “breaching the VIVO Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct” during the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and SunRisers Hyderabad, according to a media advisory of the league.
The official statement reads that the RCB skipper had admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPL Code of Conduct and that the decision taken by the match referee would be final and binding.
Virat Kohli reprimanded for breaching IPL code of conduct. He was spotted hitting a chair at the RCB dugout after dismissal in #SRHvRCB #IPL2021 — Akshay Ramesh (@iamnotakshayr) April 14, 2021
And even though the statement doesn’t specifically mention exactly what did the cricketer do to have breached the Code of Conduct, it has been speculated that it had to do with a little display of aggression after he lost his wicket in the 13th over.
In a video from the match, Kohli could be seen smashing a plastic chair with his bat after stepping over the boundary line and on his way to the dressing room, as his teammates Washinton Sundar, and Yuzvendra Chahal watched silently from distance.

Within minutes of the video being uploaded, Virat Kohli critics slammed the cricketer for his behaviour while talking about how he should realise that he is a role model to millions of kids who are watching him perform his theatrics on live television:

Running out of balls to play with one player left to spare, SRH could only score 143 in 20 overs and ended up losing the match by six runs.
A stunning effort by Glenn Maxwell in the middle order earned him the ‘Player of the Match’ recognition for his 59-off 41 deliveries while his Australian teammate Warner remained the second-highest scorer of the night.

Somedays you just want to laze and watch a larger-than-life movie with an ensemble cast like a K3G or a ZNMD, but on some days, watching a movie which is relatable on so many personal levels becomes a privilege we all want to savour. It's not every day that Bollywood does a great job at showing the problem of the ‘aam aadmi’ but here 5 brilliant movies which realistically depict exactly that, and do a great job with it: 1. Khosla Ka GhoslaWe all know a certain ‘taya ji’ or a ‘chacha ji’ who have been duped in terms of property and investment. This is one comedy movie which throws light on the reality of what a common man endures in his life, in a super realistic way. Some of our parents save money all their lives to build a home for the family and naturally, if that is taken away illegally, it would shatter anyone. This movie makes you laugh and reminds you that not all business deals are legit.
2. QueenOne of the two reasons why this small budget movie broke records (besides Kangana’s brilliant act) is its basic storyline. Sure, the twist in the tale where the bride, when abandoned on her wedding day, decides to go for a solo honeymoon might be slightly exaggerated, but it is a very real issue that so many women, as well as men, face in their lives. The movie teaches you a simple thing, i.e- if you don’t take control of your life, the society will do it for you. Setting yourself free and not seeking constant validation on ‘log kya kahenge’ was a great reminder.
3. Oh My GodI guess a movie like this won't be made again in Bollywood but this one represents the blindness of religious leaders or what one calls ‘andh bhakt' in a very simple way. This film explains how the ‘aam admi’ is ready to spend his hard earned money on religious leaders in order to make the almighty happy, and forgetting the fact that these so-called duping souls can not be a catalyst for attaining ‘moksha’.
4. Dum Lagake HaishaExtremely relatable is how one can best describe this movie. A simple boy marrying an overweight but very educated woman, setting eyeballs rolling and people judging her for her weight. Sounds familiar? That’s because this is a very common situation in the society, in urban and in rural areas, where women are targeted with body-shaming every second. This movie celebrates love in a beautiful manner, and that is all that matters.
5. Aankhon DekhiThis movie depicts the everyday struggle of the common man who is just trying to make ends meet and do things according to a certain societal perception. The whole ‘log kya kahenge’ and succumbing to herd mentality is wonderfully addressed in this heart warming tale of a father who is resistant to allow his daughter to marry a man of her choice. Everything changes when he meets him and realises his pre-conceived notions were wrong.
Gangster movies have their own appeal of narrating tales inspired by real life events which wreaked havoc to humanity. While Hollywood has done a far better job in depicting gangster history, Bollywood has decently managed to make a few movies loosely based and inspired by true gangster lords. Here are 5 movies which were based on real life gangsters: 1. CompanyThis super hit movie which was a big aesthetic surprise for people back in 2002 was rumoured to have been based on the real life friendship of underworld lords Dawood Ibrahim and Chota Rajan, who were pretty close knit prior to the 1993 Mumbai blasts. The movie stars Ajay Devgn and Viveik Oberoi in the lead roles and tells the tale of two gangsters who managed to stay close friends before falling apart.
2. Shootout At WadalaThis Sanjay Gupta venture was supposedly based on the life of Mumbai gangster Manya Surve. The fictionalised account follows Manya, who is in prison for killing a gangster who attacked his brother. When Manya finally gets free, he forms his own gang and vows to seek revenge.
3. Black FridayThis is one of the most authentic accounts which showed how the city of Mumbai fell under the shadow of the Mafia. Based on S Hussain Zaidi’s book, this Anurag Kashyap movie is a well researched project which depicts how the Mumbai’s gangsters were linked to Pakistan’s intelligence set-up. The film covers the 1993 blasts and the riots which broke after it and also depicts how Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon were attached to its execution.
4. D DayThis is yet another attempt at depicting incidents from the lives of Dawood Ibrahim. This one has Rishi Kapoor in the lead role who is essaying the character of Iqbal Seth, a fictional character. The movie follows Indian agencies trying to capture him and the mission falling apart due to some miscalculations in the plan.
5. Once Upon A Time In MumbaiThis one is inspired and based on the life of gangster Haji Mastan, who was the terror lord in Mumbai back in the 60’s and the 70’s. The movie was obviously heavily fictionalised but the portrayals of Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi’s characters were inspired from the relationship between Haji Mastan and his disciple Dawood Ibrahim.
