1. 'Dil Chahta Hai'

Situation: Akshay Khanna slaps the crap out of Aamir Khan after the latter makes fun of him for being in love with an older woman.

 

Significance: Nothing hurts more than your best buddy failing to support or at least understand your feelings. In this case, where Khanna was head over heels in love a woman twice his age, Khan mocking him and trying to talk him out of the whole thing was simply the last straw for him. Resulting in epic bitchslap!

2. 'Kal Ho Na Ho'

Situation: Saif Ali Khan comes in his resplendent best, all set with flowers and music to tell Preity Zinta how deeply he loves her. But his heart is ripped from his chest and he is in visible pain when he finds out that she is in fact madly in love with his rambunctious friend- Shah Rukh Khan. Go figure. 

Significance: Oh this needs no elaboration! Unrequited love is like common cold but without a cure. One can only pray not to find themselves in poor Saif's shoes.

3. 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge'

Situation: Poor Parmeet Sethi faced the embarrassment of a lifetime after his fiancée Kajol jumped onto the train to happiness with SRK, right in front of his family and friends (after getting beaten up black and blue on top of everything). He was not even the villain and he was meted such terrible treatment.

bollywood movies

Significance: Not everyone is Raj, nor does everyone want to be. But there are thousands of Kuljeets who are asked to swallow the bitter medicine just because they come across as the 'bad guys'. Hey! They have feelings too.

4. Devdas:

Situation: A miserable SRK attends the wedding of his childhood sweetheart Aishwarya Rai. Poor bloke gives her away and even shoulders her palanquin.

Significance: Those who have stood and watched helplessly as the woman they love began a new life with another man can relate to his pitiful situation. Of course, stumbling around drunk in grief and blind to the world is never recommended.

5. 'Raanjhanaa'

Situation: Basically Dhanush in the entire movie. He literally dies trying to prove his love for a zombified Sonam Kapoor (who is already grieving for her dead Muslim lover). From being a stalker to a rickshawalla to also being mistaken for a beggar by college students! Boy, did he get the rough end of the deal. 

Significance: How far can you go for the one you love? It is a situation many of us have found ourselves in at some point. Finding ourselves charging full speed without brakes, all in an attempt to be at least visible to them can be exhausting. It is an interesting concept how the word “pride” suddenly loses all significance.

6. 'Student Of The Year'

Situation: Varun Dhawan walks in on a horrific scene where his girlfriend Alia Bhatt and best friend Sidharth Malhotra are full on making out! No need to elaborate. 

 

Significance: Oh hell no! This is nothing but betrayal of the purest form. No wonder it took them 10 years to resolve the matter, which eventually ended in a public brawl with them punching the lights out of each other. Hurting your bro is evil enough, but making a move on his girl too? Honestly, getting hit is not enough punishment.   

7. 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama'

Situation: Divyendu Sharma (Liquid) gets humiliated at work in front of his colleagues by the woman he has a massive crush on. Especially AFTER he helped her in the company, paid for her flat, accompanied her literally everywhere, even listened when she whined about her loser ex.

bollywood moviesPanorama Studios

Significance: The moral of the story in this situation is pretty simple: Don't become a ch****a even when you fall in love. If you do not respect yourself, then please don't expect others to.

8. 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' 

Situation: “What goes around comes back around”. This quote is personified spectacularly by playboy Ranbir Kapoor, who after breaking the hearts of two women who were in love with him, gets a taste of his own medicine by the fiercely independent Deepika Padukone.

Significance: There are some of us who just have to learn things the hard way. And that's when Karma steps in. Basically, being a jerk has its repercussions.

9. 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'

Situation: Ranbir Kapoor is bonkers for the hopped-up-on-sugar-and-life Anushka Sharma. But she wants nothing more than friendship. He even ends up singing heartbroken at her wedding…which is followed by a tantrum where he repeatedly bangs his chest with a flower pot (yes, trying to show literal pain!)

 

Significance: Friendzone is a bitch. It is the place where all hopes and dreams die. And if by God's miracle you do escape from that dark pit, please spread the knowledge to your bros.

10. 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'

Situation: Poor Salman Khan! Finds out on his effing wedding day that his bride is in love with someone else. Lord knows how he let this humiliation slide by and handed over Kajol to SRK with a smile on his face.           

Significance: The art of learning to let go is what Sallu bhai taught us in this emotionally charged scene. However, not all of us actually have the strength to sing and dance with flair after getting stomped on the heart in public.

Manushi Chhillar isn't just a pretty face but a complete package. Making India proud, the glamorous Haryana beauty brought back the coveted 'Miss World' crown home after 17 years, making every citizen proud of her accomplishment.

Manushi who had made it to the top 5 along with contestants from England, France, Kenya, and Mexico, had always dreamt of this day. The official announcement about the winner was made on pageant's official Twitter handle. The tweet broke the Internet and wishes started pouring in for her from all around the globe.

 “The winner of Miss World 2017 is Miss India Manushi Chhillar,” the tweet said.

Congratulations to Manushi Chhillar - Miss World 2017 https://t.co/rytViwXCmL#missworld #missworld2017 #msworld #manushichhillar #india pic.twitter.com/k3oMoDMYNv

Miss England Stephanie Hill and Miss Mexico Andrea Meza were the first and second runners-up respectively.

Reita Faria was the first Indian to win this crown in 1966 and she was the one who has inspired Manushi since her childhood. Leaving her medical studies aside, the 20-year-old won the title of Femina Miss India this year.

Defeating 108 contestants from various nations, she won the coveted title, proving that she was every bit worthy of it.

Manushi is involved in various social activities as well and after winning Miss India, she started an awareness campaign about menstrual hygiene. Talking about it to the media, she said, “The cause is close to my heart, and in my own way, I have managed to make a difference in the lives of about 5,000 women. If an organisation like Miss World backs it, it could reach a different level altogether.”

Manushi Chhillar(c) AP

To win the Miss World Pageant beauty isn't the only factor that is taken into consideration, as various aspects of one's personality play an important role as well. Their intelligence, confidence and spontaneity and other skills play a vital role.

And now that we know the winner, we can say for sure that Manushi possessed all these qualifications to make it till here. But what won her the title was the answer that she gave to the judges that won everyone's heart.

The panel asked her a question and her answer gave her the golden ticket to the title. It wouldn't be wrong to say that what she felt and expressed played a huge role.

Manushi Chhillar(c) AP

The judges asked her, in her opinion which profession deserves the highest pay and why.  To which she replied, “I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary it's not always about cash but I feel it's the love and respect that you give to someone. My mother has always been the biggest inspiration in my life. All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. So, I think it is the job of a mother that deserves the highest salary.”

Check out the video here:

Well, this answer was definitely the one that touched everyone's heart and we are totally impressed by this beautiful lady. What do you think about the answer she gave?

Regardless of you being a fan of this man or not, you still catch yourself rocking to the tracks of Ed Sheeran. His song 'Love With The Shape Of You' has smashed global records and went so viral that even those who didn't recognise him, know this song.

Rings a bell right? So what happens when you become a viral sensation and the entire world is aware of your fame? You obviously go on a global musical tour. Ed is all set to perform tonight in Mumbai and people are excited, but what is a concert with no hype before it? Bollywood welcomed him with open arms and Farah Khan Kunder hosted a grand welcome bash for the English singer.

And the party begins!! He loves the shape of me!! @edsheeran

Okay, don't have major FOMO. We didn't party with him but at the end of the day he is a singer and we have the luck of listening to him whenever we want. Here's one of his songs from his old days which should ease out your Sunday:

As far as the concert is concerned, social media will take care of keeping you updated about that!

Some beauties are timeless and Sushmita Sen is one of the stunning divas who has been knocking the wind out of men since she stepped into the limelight. From winning the crown of Miss Universe, becoming an actress to breaking the social norms and becoming a single mother, she is an inspiration for many out there.

As the actress turns 42 today, we take a look at some of her stunning pictures that prove that there is no one as beautiful, sexy and glamorous like her in the tinsel town.

Not many know this but Sush was the first woman from India to win the crown in 1994.

There are some answers that can make everyone fall for you and what Sushmita said on that stage made her the winner.

The judges asked, ''What is the essence of being a woman?'' to which the beauty replied, "Just being a woman is God's gift that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. She shows a man what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman. "

If there's anything sturdier than a rock, it's the name Dwayne Johnson that will go down in history as one of the most celebrated wrestlers of all time. 

On November 17th 1996, a frizzy-haired, buffed up guy in a blue costume with frills, Rocky Maivia entered the ring, with a goal to buy a home for his parents. Fans weren't exactly interested in watching Maivia and his quirky fashion statement, but WWE surely had other plans in store for him. Fast forward 21 years and Maivia is now the ten-time world champion whom we all know as 'The Rock', The People's Champion and The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment. (Going by the turn of events that followed, he can today possibly buy a whole city if he wants.)

Crazy it all started 21yrs ago today. Made my @wwe debut. My #1 goal was buy my parents their first home. 3yrs later in '99 I was able to. No idea where this crazy road would lead me, I just knew I was willing to work my ass off and that I loved the hell outta Waffle House ðð¤ð¾ https://t.co/dHkJByOqQi

— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) 17 November 2017

From his debut victory at the 1996 Survivor Series in New York City to becoming a legendary wrestler and now one of the popular Hollywood actors, Johnson has come a long way and we don't think there's anyone who has held any doubts in his skills to floor his fans both inside and outside the ring. After all, he's one of the primary reasons why many kids born in the late 90s got hooked to WWE. 

He was also the reason why even today Triple H can only remember the punches The Rock landed on his face. 

You know...it sure is interesting that most of your big @WWE moments somehow involve punching me in the face... ð¤ https://t.co/iRUghIg5OC

— Triple H (@TripleH) November 18, 2017

He is also the reason why some people watched movies like 'The Game Plan' and 'Tooth Fairy'. I mean, who will want to miss the chance of seeing Johnson take ballet lessons and wear a tutu and wings (although, we are sure The Rock wouldn't wish to be remembered for those movies). 

Dwayne Johnson Tooth Fairy

It's quite unbelievable that The Rock is celebrating his 21st WWE anniversary (do all you 90s kids feel old now?) However, all we can remember is his debut look - pineapple style haircut, which he jokingly takes the credit for and his bold and bizarre fashion choices, which he defends even today. He did admit that he had the world's worst wrestling outfit ever, but we are sure that by the time the match was over, the virality of this outfit would have definitely spread like wild fire. 

Wow what a @WWE rookie memory. I had the world's WORST wrestling outfit EVER and so broke I used to cut my own hair (as you can tell by this beautifully f*cked up pineapple cut I used to give myself) yet...
NYC and Madison Square Garden embraced me like a son. #grateful. https://t.co/idS0lLZzXD

— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) November 17, 2017

If you think your childhood pictures are embarrassing, remember that nothing beats these throwback pictures that were dug up from the roots of the internet, especially on his anniversary day. 

20 Years ago today @TheRock made his debut.#SurvivorSeries#WowThatOutfit pic.twitter.com/dpqUcE6qdc

— Robert Wells (@ElevateMao) November 17, 2017

While congratulating him for completing 21 years in WWE, a fan reminded him of his fashion choices, which no one except 'The Rock' can dare to don. 

No, thank YOU. But we should still talk about these fashion choices. pic.twitter.com/aIAvklp1rO

— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) November 17, 2017

Well, 'The Rock' was quick to defend his shiny gold waistcoat and the unbuttoned silk shirt he wore back then and said “Gold lam'e matching vest and pants at the VMA's and a completely open silk shirt at the Emmys were beautiful smart choices. So I thought.”

Goðð¾yourself Jimmy. Gold lam'e matching vest and pants at the VMA's and a completely open silk shirt at the Emmys were beautiful smart choices. So I thought. ð https://t.co/MjUus8NKDy

— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) November 18, 2017

All those people standing inside the ring would have possibly taken this man for granted, especially when he came in that flamboyant outfit. Today, Dwayne Johnson is a legend not only in wrestling but also in Hollywood. Now, our beloved actor is eyeing for the 2020 US presidency. Well, if he gets elected, we are sure he is going to make more heads turn (quite literally) as compared to Donald Trump.

In what appears to be a major boost for Majid Khan, former Indian captain Bhaichung Bhutia has offered full support to the Kashmiri footballer-turned-terrorist after he gave up arms and surrendered to the authorities on Friday.

The Indian football legend has written to Jammu and Kashmir's football association extending his support to the youngster in pursuing his football dream. Considered one of the top talents in football from the Valley, Majid had reportedly joined terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

However, the talented goalkeeper had recently returned to his hoemtown and surrendered to the local police following his mother Ashiya Begum's emotional pleas on the social media. Reacting to the positive outcome, Bhutia has offered Majid a training stint at the Bhaichung Bhutia Football School in New Delhi.

I felt concerned reading this news and hence I have spoken to J&K Football Association President to Reach out to him and convey my offer that he can train with @BBFSchools in Delhi which will give him an opportunity at becoming a pro footballer. I hope #Majid accepts my offer. pic.twitter.com/ZGkjBPraRr

— Bhaichung Bhutia (@bhaichung15) 18 November 2017


Taking to Twitter, the 40-year-old said: "I felt concerned reading this news and hence I have spoken to J&K Football Association President to Reach out to him and convey my offer that he can train with @BBFSchools in Delhi which will give him an opportunity at becoming a pro footballer. I hope #Majid accepts my offer".

"I was very sad to read reports of Majid joining a terrorist organisation. Football has provided solace to many over the years and I felt he requires a platform to play the 'Beautiful game' again" Bhutia was quoted as saying by the HT.

— Mir Ada (@MirAda94) 13 November 2017


“I have already touched base with the J&K Football Association offering him to train with Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools in Delhi. I want him to train under my Coaches and then we can decide where he stands as a player. I believe he deserves an opportunity and hence, felt best to open the doors for him,” Bhutia revealed.

“I also read that he has been a promising footballer since his childhood and has even won quite many trophies. Once you start kicking the ball again, you never know, your lives may just kick-off again. We want Majid to come back to normal life eat the earliest,” Bhutia concluded.

Serena Williams is arguably the greatest female athlete on the planet, while Alexis Ohanian is the co-founder of Reddit (birthplace of all the memes). The American beauty adores tennis, while Alexis grew up playing Game Boy. She is often labelled as the 'Undisputed Queen' of tennis, while he has been referred to as the 'mayor of the Internet'.

There is no doubt that they are an unlikely match from two very different worlds. But, on Thursday night, when the entire world was wondering about their whereabouts, Serena and Alexis tied nuptial knots in a private ceremony at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

So, when you're the co-founder of a $1.8-billion company and she is 23-time Grand Slam champion, how do you get married? Well, it seems pretty simple, only it's not.

@serenawilliams: You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport--I'm talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together. And my whole life I didn't even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we're doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love. ð¸ @melbarlowandco @allanzepedaphotography

Though New Orleans is no stranger to celebrities and weddings, it was apparently Alexis' decision to do their wedding in the city. With a heavy European influence including the food, New Orleans is reportedly his favourite city besides Brooklyn. While Alexis chose the city, Serena picked the venue - the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans - for her love for painting and art.

The wedding date - 16 November - is actually the birthday of Alexis' mother who passed away nine years ago. Once the day and venue were decided, the couple hired one of sickest wedding planner on the East Coast - (drumroll) Jennifer Zabinski. And, what followed later was nothing short of a fairy tale.

Taking their seats in the ceremony space, the couple's friends, families and hell lot of A-listers - including Beyonce, Jay Z, Tina Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian West, and Ciara amongst others - were introduced to a short video that told the story of Serena and Alexis' relationship on TVs encased in gold frames above the aisle.

The seating at the ceremony had a fashion-show feel where sofas were used instead of chairs, with everything facing the aisle instead of the altar. Not yet impressed? Hear this out. After the video, a Daily Mail report suggests that the bridesmaids made their entrances to rounds of applause wearing custom Galia Lahav dresses (read: really expensive dresses from an Israeli designer).

Amongst the bridesmaids, Serena's best friend Val Vogt walked the bride's beloved pet 'Chip' down the aisle. To top it all, Chip was dressed in his very own tiny tuxedo. A Yorkshire terrier in a Tux, can you believe that? If this was how the bridesmaids and her pet entered, we can only imagine how Serena walked down the aisle.

With all eyes on her, Serena emerged in a dramatic strapless, belted Alexander McQueen princess gown with a cape designed by Sarah Burton. To compliment her dress, she carried a bouquet of white roses and sparkling jewellery by XIV Karats. To put things in perspective, Serena was walking around with $3.5 million in total. That's how the tennis sensation made her entrance.

After the couple exchanged the vows, the guests were escorted to an around-the-world-themed dinner by Creative Edge Parties (read: not just another chicken dinner caterer). With the guests taking their seats at four long tables named after Serena's Grand Slam victories, the newlyweds were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. Alexis Ohanian. Also, the cue to Serena's second dress of the evening.

As explained by Vogue, her second dress of the evening was a dramatic beaded, feathered Versace moment (whatever the hell that means) that made her look like a fashion-forward superwoman. But, what's interesting is the fact that it took a team of five embroiderers working for a total of 1,500 hours to create the Versace dress. Talk about getting the details right, han.

Amidst all that decor and suave, what's the point of a wedding if you don't have a ball. But, when you're someone like Serena, you're not gonna have any average Joe's normal royal ball. Instead, you splash a couple of hundred-thousands on a fairy-tale ball. And, chandeliers encased in gold birdcages, trophy-style place cards, and the 'black lame' table linens achieved that goal.

Following the couple's dance and late into the after-party, Alexis pulled out the final surprise of the night. He grabbed the mic and introduced the guests and a jubilant Serena to an illuminated all-white carousel (merry-go-round). With everyone going bonkers with the surprise, the couple found some alone time as they cuddled into the night.

As expected, it was arguably one of the most scintillating weddings involving a sports star this year. While Serena and Alexis vowed in their respective attires, it was their two-month-old daughter who stole the show. Dressed as the tennis star's youngest bridesmaid, Alexis Olympia Jr. was the icing on the cake at this celebrity wedding.

If you thought you were the pettiest person you knew, then get ready for a reality check.

Setting the standard for sibling rivalry, a man, who hails from Beirut in Lebanon, literally constructed a spite house, just to block the Mediterranean Sea view of his brother's building in the same area. It can't get better and funnier than that, tbh.

A Man Built A Thin Building Just To Block His Brother's Sea-View

One of the thinnest buildings in the world, this 'house' is 14-metre-high and less than one meter in width, and was constructed on a 120-square-meter piece of land to basically decrease the value of the brother's property.

So basically, what happened was that both of the brothers had inherited one plot each from their father. But, since one of the plots was partially claimed due to a road expansion, one brother got his revenge in the best way ever.

The best part? It is called 'Al Ba'sa', which literally translates to 'The Grudge'. How cool is that?

It is also known as The Queen Mary. It looks like a ship — wide from one side and narrow from the other.

Even though it was made back in 1954, the house was recently brought to the internet's attention because of someone on Twitter posting about it. And now, this level of spite is finally receiving the fame it deserves.

The ultimate road warrior is here, and it's brought to you by Tesla!

0-100kmph in 1.9 seconds

Whaaaaat!

The fastest production car (by acceleration) on the planet has made an appearance and it's groovy AF, very shagadelic!

Tesla's New Roadster Goes 0-100KMPH In 1.9 Seconds Making It The Fastest Car In The WorldSource: Tesla

Tesla has finally unveiled their modern roadster and it's a slap on the faces of the fastest marque cars we've ever known. We would recommend it be driven with the top on lest the driver and passenger should find their hair being ripped off their heads!

The days of the reigning stallion Tesla Model S are now over, even though it'll continue to be a favourite family car for many. But it's safe to say the Model S will rest in the shadow of the sporty and delicious cherry red roadster. The Model S was capable of jumping from 0-100kmph in 2.28 seconds, thanks to the truly ludicrous 'Ludicrous Update', making it the fastest production electric vehicle in the world till a few hours ago.

Tesla's New Roadster Goes 0-100KMPH In 1.9 Seconds Making It The Fastest Car In The WorldTesla

Musk's real competition is himself, literally, ergo the new roadster. Even the Flash would take longer to attain that kind of acceleration. Ok, perhaps not, but 1.9 seconds is lightening fast (Don't quote us)! Know what's the best part about this? Those that can shell out $200,000 or INR 1.30 crores to buy the base model, can make this ultra fast acceleration a part of their day to day lives. The question that naturally arises: would the higher end model go faster?

Tesla's New Roadster Goes 0-100KMPH In 1.9 Seconds Making It The Fastest Car In The WorldSource: Tesla

Musk is such a tease since he didn't shed any light on what the higher end models were capable of. Even if they came with a similar powertrain, we're sure that another crazy software update could change the way we look at acceleration, in no time. For now, we can go ga-ga over a few things that are absolutely revolutionary about the new roadster:

1. 0-100kmph in 1.9 seconds (can't stress on it enough).

2. A break through mileage of nearly 1000km on one charge-- it's more than two times what the Model S offers.

3. A top speed of over 400kmph. The Model S's 250kmph is a joke in front of that! Also, how much above 400kmph has us licking our lips in sweet anticipation. The one car we would be pitting this roadster against, though, is the Hennessy Venom F5 that seems to be teasing with a top speed of 485kmph! It would be fun to watch them line up over a quarter mile!

4. Three motors, two that power the rear and one powering the front wheels, making it a four-wheel drive. The Model S came with only one that was capable of producing 362hp. Could the Roadster be pumping thrice the power? Could it be over 1000hp? You'd have to wait till 2020 to find out because that's when Tesla plans to make its first deliveries.

5. The design of the Roadster is striking, rounded in the right places and angular where it is required! That red bodywork, though!

We know most shy away from electric vehicles because they are exorbitantly priced and their mileage is limited, Musk has broken ground with the new specs and produced a mind bending hyper car and it costs the same as the cheapest Ferrari (Portofino). What would you choose, an electric roadster that takes you to places at crazy speeds or a classic because of its legacy? Take a look at this video and mull things over while we deal with the goosebumps!

It was their first Goa trip together as a couple. Both of them had taken a much-deserved leave from office. One night before they left, he asked her for 3000 bucks, “It's for new drum sticks and a sound recorder, we broke ours yesterday. I'll fund your drinks in Goa. I don't have time to go to an ATM right now.” He was a successful copywriter and earned enough but somehow he was perpetually broke. She lent him the money. At midnight she got a call from his parents – he had been caught buying drugs for 3000 bucks from a local vendor and was in prison now. When she confronted him later, he confessed he was an addict. 

That's the thing about addiction. You never know when it hits you. You never think it will ever happen to you. We assume addictions happen only within a certain section of society. For us, it's just a lifestyle choice—mostly. It's just one drag yar. It's my best friend's bachelor's party. It's our school farewell. I have to look cool in front of my crush. Now she is my girlfriend, and we are going to Malana. Sometimes, you never realize when an innocuous act turns into a habit and a habit into an addiction. 

Drugs and alcohol are on the fashionable and culturally acceptable end of the social spectrum today. The idea is romanticized enough for young people to succumb to its charms. One look at dating sites will tell you it's the new 'sapiosexual'. Not everyone is a tortured artist suffering from existential angst but everyone needs a joint to deal with the angst. It's the latest 'cool' and it's here to stay.

Of course, there are always two sides to the story and there are a great many positive stories around it too. Marijuana, especially, is a favourite and, for many, a life saviour. The stoners' cult is strong and it's growing. Marijuana has helped many an artist find inspiration, calmed many an anxious soul and helped people deal with depression. Among the many forms of drugs out there, marijuana is one of the safest, yes. Cocaine, LSD, heroin, ecstasy are some that many cross over to in search of more potent highs. But this story is about the dark side of drug use and the havoc a trend has played with young lives. 

There is a thin line between enjoyment and abuse and in the case of drugs and alcohol that line is easy to cross. When you are young, it's even easier.

Contrary to what you might think, it's not something that only affects someone with a broken home, or someone who has had it rough in life. There's a whole lot of addiction cases amongst schoolchildren from well-to-do families as well as kids living on the streets. With easy access to money and drugs, it doesn't take a lot for young impressionable minds to get hooked to a pastime that has been glamourised enough. 

And it's not just the teens who are affected. You could be a twenty-something individual with a pretty great job and a happening social life, and you could still fall prey to addiction. With stressful jobs or the absence of one, broken relationships, financial challenges – it's easy to resort to a quick fix that whisks you away into a world of bliss. None of your everyday troubles seem to matter anymore—that grumpy partner, the mean boss, your shaky bank balance or your receding hairline; you are safely floating away in a limbo where you realise these material things mean nothing. 

The high wears off and you come back to harsh reality. You see your life in the blinding lights that can turn anything uglier than it actually is. Having seen the better world, it's more difficult to accept the real one. So you crave to return to it every waking moment of your life. And the cycle of addiction begins.

Statistics suggest that in India alone, there are over 1 million registered heroin addicts. Addicts, not users. A report on adolescent drug abuse in India, published in American International Journal of Research in Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, says, “A population study has shown that about 3% of children and adolescents of ages ranged from 12 to 18 years abused cannabis and that of only 4% of [the Adolescence Drug Abuse in India] abusers go for treatment of these problems.”

Prolonged use of marijuana is believed to affect cognitive ability and brain development, especially if it's used in adolescence. A study by researchers from New Zealand and Duke University found out that those addicted to marijuana in their teen years experienced a drop of 8 points in their IQ, between the ages of 13 and 38. Sure, it gives you a happy high. Sure, it's a good way to have a good time. But are drugs making us dumber? Is it really worth the sacrifice? 

When Smoking Up Becomes A Life-Threatening Addiction© Thinkstock/Getty Images

One of the main effects of most drugs is to calm the mind and ease out anxiety and tension. When the body starts loving that state, it adopts the easy shortcut – take the drug for instant happiness. When done occasionally, it has no significant long-term effect on our cognitive facilities, but when done over an extended period of time, it tricks our minds into craving it. These bouts of complete relaxation then become phases – you might often end up sitting shut in your room for hours in a happy high. College assignments, office deadlines, socializing with friends, working out are all sacrificed for the happy high. When the high wears off, life is a mess. No, you are not addicted. And so you then try to take control of your life – finish off the assignments in a huff, rush to complete deadlines and leave out whatever can be left out. 

It's a high functioning addiction that doesn't make you bankrupt, doesn't land you in a hospital, doesn't let the world know that it is slowly eating away your life's resources. You probably know someone like that – that avowed junkie who has the best stash at all times. Friends love him; he is the most chilled out guy (except when he is not high) and always gets you stuff at the best rates. But gradually, he withdraws, he is the first one to drop out of the game, he is often conspicuous in his absence and then one day, he stops coming to college and you hear how he has been diagnosed with a drug problem. It was there all along.

Twenty-year-old Natasha (name changed) had always been a bright student, an accomplished dancer and an extempore champion in school. During the first year of college, she attempted suicide. It was then revealed that the girl had been in depression since the age of 16 and had been doing drugs since 17. With support from friends and family, she took control of her life back and checked into rehab. After her story began circulating in her friend circle, many other kids decided to come out and seek help for their addictions. 

We hear of the terrible addiction stories and we shrug them off as anomalies of the lot, convincing ourselves it only happens in a certain section of the population. Before we romanticize the idea of the psychedelic way of life, let's remember it's not always a happy life and it's easy to go overboard. There have been many who have checked into rehab and there have been many who have paid with their lives. Actor Health Ledger, singer Whitney Houston, rock musician Jimi Hendrix are just some of the names  whose lives were cut short by drug overdose. 

Like other adult activities, substance use is one that requires caution and a certain maturity. Peer pressure is one of the worst reasons to try a drug. It's not something that's meant for everyone. Everyone has a different way and capacity of dealing with addictions. You may have a sweet tooth and you may end up gaining weight or getting diabetes as a result. But a drug overdose doesn't give you too many chances. You cross the threshold and the consequences can be disastrous.

What can make a Dwayne Johnson movie even better? Adding a giant ape, giant werewolf, and a giant crocodile. And, there you have a 'Rampage'. 

Based on the classic arcade game where you have to bash cities to rubble while playing as a giant gorilla, lizard or wolf, comes an exciting live-action movie starring none other than Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Warner Bros has just released the first trailer for 'Rampage', the arcade game film adaptation we did not realise we needed till now. 

The Rock, Guns And Monsters, 'Rampage's' Trailer Has ARRIVED

A few months ago, Johnson, who will be playing the head of an anti-poaching unit that operates in Rwanda, provided a few more details about his relationship with George the gorilla with an Instagram caption.

“I head up an anti-poaching unit out of Rwanda,” he wrote. “My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world.”

The Rock, Guns And Monsters, 'Rampage's' Trailer Has ARRIVED

And, that pretty much sums up the premise of the movie, but going by the trailer, it's much more than that. The trailer is enough to grab everyone's attention, and honestly it looks pretty cool. 

The original game gave players control of three giant beasts: a gorilla named George, a lizard-like creature named Lizzie and a wolf-like creature named Ralph, and the ultimate goal was to raze a series of buildings in each level while fighting off attacks from civilians, police and military.

The Rock, Guns And Monsters, 'Rampage's' Trailer Has ARRIVED

For this movie, Johnson reteams with his 'San Andreas' and 'Journey 2' director Brad Peyton, and it also stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello and Naomie Harris. 

Historically, movie adaptations of games have failed to live up to the hype, and have been straight up awful for the most part. But, 'Rampage' is just adapting a rough concept, which is basically what would happen if some giant beasts go rouge and destroy a city. 

The Rock, Guns And Monsters, 'Rampage's' Trailer Has ARRIVED

Well, it would be interesting to see if 'Rampage' manages to escape this curse when it releases on April 20th next year. 

Here's the exciting trailer:

Unless you believe in the magic of day dreaming, there's hardly a chance you'll solve things without any effort. Concept application: while dressing for your height. Though, nothing can lengthen your body length for you, certain style tips/tricks create illusions of extended height. And if there's anyone who's single handedly raining on this parade, it's our handlebar mascot—Aamir Khan. In recent times, nothing that we've seen off the actor's wardrobe, has let us down on the style front. Sure, we've never witnessed anything extraordinary in his menswear, but there's a lot to learn from Mr. Khan anyway. He has always, without fail, succumbed himself to dressing for his (comparatively) short height. And if you're eyeing examples of our former statement, let's give you five.

1. For Lesson #1, you need a well-fitted pair of jeans in life. Nothing too baggy or low-rise, but a rather high/medium-rise pair of denim bottoms. No way in hell should you look stumpier than usual! Plus, darker the colour/wash, better for you. By doing so, you'll divert one's attention from the bottom to top—resulting in the illusion of extended length. Of course, Mr. Khan is hitting the hammer here!

2. Joggers are way too chill, man. Having said that, cuffed joggers can cause havoc in men who're a little too short. But if you're maintaining a scooped neckline, dwindly hem and ending it right below the hip, there's nothing stopping your high stakes with style.

3. Anyone short in height doesn't need to stay away from anything that stands-out. You can certainly stink of a pop colour sometimes, even if it's at the cost of wearing pink—that unfortunately, can turn you into a public joke. That said, if you do it anyway, wear a well-fitted pair and one ending right above the ankle. Plus, balance it all out with not-heeled, but well-elevated footwear.

4. The point is, when you're short, you can't expose your natural body lines. Keep your apparel well-fitted, but leave some space for the imagination—distract people away from your flaws. Like here, if you're thinking of going in for a layering piece, look at fuller arms. They'll create a more streamlined view on your top half, eventually extending your length for you.

5. Even though a hoodie is a kickass go-to option most times, a suit jacket is the best bet. By building up your shoulders and since pronounced shoulders lengthen your height, you're going to appear taller, come what may. But, pick a jacket that fits right—don't choke yourself with it. That'll just make you look shorter!

If you haven't watched Justice League yet, you're in for a treat

Bruce Wayne's Swanky Mercedes Isn't The Only Mean Machine In Justice League© Mercedes

 because:

1. Superman is the meanest super hero in the entire comicbook universe

2. Gal Godot will lasso you into loving her

3. Flash's humour is as slick as his moves

4. The machines in the movie are so rad they will knock your socks off, and it's winter so you're going to get terribly cold... You might want to take even Cyborg into consideration because he's part machine!

Let's start with Bruce Wayne's Mercedes, though. Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo. We love the Bat but he himself admits that his super power is bank loads of disposal money. Money buys you fancy things like gull-wing roadsters that take up the entire screen space and crush your hearts to bits because you know you can't ever own the machine. It's not just the obnoxious price tag but even the fact that the Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo is just a one off prototype. 

The rumble of the engine was enough to make us sweat, but there was one thing we found a teensy bit strange-- doors taking a tad too long to shut? So if the enemy is in pursuit of dear Brucey, he'll have to wait till the doors come to a slow close to drive off? Hmmm...

Gal Gadot too gets a fancy Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet but it didn't do much for us. We would've liked to watch her pull out of the fluorescent G-Class G-Class 4x42, but who are we kidding, it's too rad even for Wonder Woman. Diana and the E-Class Cabriolet, somehow just fit. 

Bruce Wayne's Swanky Mercedes Isn't The Only Mean Machine In Justice League© Youtube/Mercedes

Now over to some absolute growlers-- first we're going to drool over the Night Crawler. Tonnes of pure metal making the ground shake as it prances about the under ground caves of Gotham Harbor, now that's what you call a real off-roading machine, 4x4's and 6x6's are passe. It's off the roads and on to the walls, clawing its way up and down and shooting the daylights out of threats that get in its way. What's not to like?

Bruce Wayne's Swanky Mercedes Isn't The Only Mean Machine In Justice League© Warner Bros. Pictures

No.2 The Batmobile!. Going through tough terrain like cream floating over milk, the Batmobile is a major treat for the eyes. Filled with locked and loaded machine guns that tear down Parademons drawn to it's siren, the Batmobile shows you a good time, even if it's just screen time. 

Bruce Wayne's Swanky Mercedes Isn't The Only Mean Machine In Justice League© Warner Bros. Pictures

The Flying Fox, a massive jet that can be controlled by Cyborg and tuned to go faster than its prescribed pace, is another mechanic wonder. When you watch it emerge from the Batcave from the middle of a huge water body, tearing up with joy will be a natural reaction. Again, raw metal emanating raw power, going whoop and out of sight within a fraction of a second, sure it's not the USS Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon, but it's pretty darn delightful, nonetheless!

Bruce Wayne's Swanky Mercedes Isn't The Only Mean Machine In Justice League© Warner Bros. Pictures

What we really would've liked to see, however, is the Justice League Watchtower because what could possibly beat a giant space ship suspended in the atmosphere, where fascinating strategies to save earth are chalked out? Guess we'll have to wait to see that happen! Fingers crossed!

Did you know that sponges live without any brains? They are extremely simple, porous, colony-type filter-feeders that live in seawater or they may look plant-like. Sponges are the simplest of multi-cellular animals. I mean, they even don't have nerve cells. According to Frank Hirth of Kings College London in the UK, sponges have experienced "evolved loss" of these structures. He expressed his views in an argument he laid out in a paper in the journal Brain, Behaviour, and Evolution in 2010. This would mean that there could be life without a brain. That's new, isn't it?

Things That Differentiate The Nature Of Your Brain From Your Mind© ThingLink

Now, there is this theory that says consciousness is the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings. And, till today, it is under discussion whether or not consciousness is the product of the brain or a receiver(like an antenna). If the brain turns out to be more of a receiver of consciousness rather than the creator itself, that would mean that the human body is not required for the continuation of consciousness, or consciousness itself.

Here is one video talking about the topic

On the other hand, your mind is not confined to just the brain. The intelligence of your mind permeates every cell of your body, not just brain cells

So, one can conclude that the brain is part of the visible, tangible world of the body whereas a mind is part of the invisible, transcendent world of thought, feeling, attitude, belief, and imagination. Consiousness? Well, that's still up for debate!

Here are some of the relatable differences between your brain and mind, mentioned by Deep Trivedi in his book 'I am The Mind'.

1. Brain: It in itself is a complicated structure, with a physical existence in the body.

Mind: It also has a complicated mechanism but is merely a play of frequencies. It has no such physical existence in the body.

2. Brain: It weighs around 3 pounds, i.e around 1.4 kilograms and it contains approximately ten billion nerve cells called neurons.  

Mind: It is practically not possible to quantify mind and its frequencies

3. Brain: From society to traditions, everything is the creation of the human brain.

Mind: It has nothing to do with society or tradition and customs.

4. Brain: It possesses memory. The function of the brain is to gather and store information

Mind: It has no memory.

5. Brain: It is extrovert by nature.

Mind: It is introvert by nature.

6. Brain: The thinking of the brain is always limited to this birth.

Mind: It acts on the basis of calculations stretching to infinity and beyond.  

Here is what the Nobel Laureates Max Planck and Albert Einstein had to say on the subject:

Things That Differentiate The Nature Of Your Brain From Your Mind© Barco

“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” – Max Planck

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe'; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. “ - Albert Einstein

Christian Bale is one of the most dedicated actors out there. He is quite well-known for going to great lengths to transform himself for his movie roles.

He literally went from this famous skeletal frame in 'The Machinist' –

A couple of months back, we got the first look of his newest transformation. He debuted a plumper look, and honestly, he looked quite unrecognizable as he prepared to portray former US Vice President Dick Cheney in an up-coming bio pic. He has even dyed his eyebrows blond to emulate the politician.

So a trainer asked a gym member, “It's been 6 months since you joined the gym, and your tummy is still the same. You haven't lost an inch. Have you not been exercising and dieting?” People have a hundred and one reasons for not hitting their goals and losing weight and then blame the trainer for their mishaps. Anyway, this write up is not about the list of excuses, but a list of wrong things hard working people are probably doing in their quest to achieve their fat loss goals.

1) Assuming You Know Everything

During my ongoing career as a fitness consultant, I had to deal with a lot of gym members who needed advise on changing their body 

composition. So I asked them if they had been eating right and exercising regularly. Almost all the time the answer is a confident YES! Taking things further with their diet recall and things are exactly the opposite. It's one thing being aware you are eating the wrong food, but it's another thing altogether to assume you are doing exactly the right things, and then finding out after being corrected that all they knew about nutrition and exercise was a lie. 

2) Doing Too Much Cardio

A long standing myth is that in order to lose fat you need to do endless hours of cardio. Although cardio can help in additional calorie expenditure that contributes to fat loss, it is certainly not the best way. The key to efficient calorie expenditure is through the BMR. Higher the BMR equals more fat loss. A muscular person has a higher BMR because muscle is a metabolically active tissue. Weight training is the best way to lose fat as you lose more calories lifting weight, the repair and growth that happens post-workout due to the breakdown of muscles also is work for the body and hence contributes to calorie expenditure even post workout. If you love doing cardio so much then do a HIIT program or an amazing METCON workout instead of the useless steady state cardio for fat loss.

3) Not Being Mentally Prepared

Following a diet is not easy. To lose fat effectively, you need to make sure you nail your diet well. However, none of us live in a perfect world where everything falls into place and the perfect food is served on the platter. You need to pre-plan your meals, make sure you are sorted for the whole day. Having an iron will is very important as lots of social commitments may come in way of your goals such as making your boss happy by eating some laddus he got from Cambodia.

 4) Choosing Low Fat Foods And Eliminating Fat From The Diet Altogether 

Foods that are labeled low fat or diet foods are often considered good choices for losing weight, but they may actually have the opposite effect. Many of these products are loaded with sugar to improve their taste. Rather than keeping you full, low-fat products are likely to make you hungrier. So you end up eating even more. Instead of low-fat or diet foods, choose a combination of nutritious, minimally processed foods. Fat-free or diet foods are typically high in sugar and may lead to hunger and bad calorie intake. The food industry has fooled consumers for the longest time that fat is fat for you while carbohydrates and sugars were okay to consume. All of these were paid research funded by multinational companies to maintain their big profits. Sadly people still fall for these gimmicks at the super market and buy foods that are labelled low fat or diet food.

Samsung has already been working on their next lineup of smartphones and there have been plenty of rumours that suggest a foldable smartphone. However, a new leak says that Samsung is working on a new version of the Galaxy S9 that will have a radical change in design. 

Leaker Ice Universe revealed that the Galaxy S9 will come in three different sizes which include a Galaxy S9 Plus and a 5-inch Galaxy S9 'mini'. The smaller device will have the same features as the larger models with the same specs but the only difference will be the size of the phone. The smaller handset will feature the Infinity Edge display and a handful of other features.

Ice Universe also claims to have seen the Galaxy S9 which will sport a dual camera setup like the Galaxy Note 8. The Galaxy S9 sporting a dual camera setup doesn't come as a surprise, however, the lens will have a BBAR coating. This coating is only used in professional DSLRs and its main job is to prevent glare, ghosting and reflections. BBAR stands for 'broad-band anti-reflection' and the presence of this coating will just up the ante in the smartphone photography world.

Other rumours suggest that Samsung may be including wireless AKG headphones with the Galaxy S9. What's interesting is that Samsung will be retaining the headphone jack even though the company has opted to provide wireless earphones with the smartphone.

It should be noted that all the information above is based on rumours and it isn't entirely certain whether these claims will be translated into the final device. For more news surrounding the Galaxy S9, keep a look out for news in our technology section.

The iPhone X is now in the hands of users and one of the most touted features of the smartphone is Face ID, which has replaced the traditional fingerprint scanner. Apple claimed that it was extremely secure and reassured users that it cannot be fooled.

However, a video appeared on YouTube showing a 10-year old kid unlocking his mother's iPhone X with his own face. In the video, the mother shows her face was registered for facial recognition but her son was still able to unlock the smartphone. Both, mother and son demonstrated that they could unlock the phone by simply looking at the screen. The son shows it clearly in the video that the screen is locked and would unlock after he stared at the screen.

Face ID uses the neural engine that 3D maps a user's face in real time. In order to register one's face, users have to rotate their head in a circular motion so that the TrueDepth camera can capture all the details. After a user's face is registered, one needs to simply swipe up to unlock the smartphone. Apple has said in the past that there is only a one-in-a-million chance someone can get around the system, and it can't be confused by hairstyles, beards, or hats.

It was very surprising to see in the mother-son video that the iPhone X would unlock with a different face without any hindrance. The problem was solved after the mother re-registered her face, however, she decided to replicate the same lighting as the first time she set up her Face ID. It was later found that they were able to unlock the phone yet again.

This is not the first time Face ID has been fooled as we covered earlier how a security group was able to fool Face ID by using a 3D printed mask. The mask in the video is made of a silicone nose, specially crafted “skin”, and 3D-printed parts.

Face ID lets only setup one face per iPhone and Apple recommends you never reset your Face ID. This is because the performance of the security method improves over time as it learns your face every day. It could be possible that the iPhone X learned the young boy's features after a few successful unlocks.
