It's not everyday that you meet your idol and they end up recognising you and your talent. Rajkummar Rao's is one underdog story which is now an inspiration to millions of young talented individuals who are trying to make it to the big screen, struggling every day in the 'city of dreams' and maybe even trying to catch a glimpse of King Khan outside Mannat. Not long ago, Rajkummar, a self-proclaimed SRK fan himself, was doing the same. The actor worked his way up until his talent spoke for him.

He has often posted about his love for Shah Rukh Khan, impersonated him many times and even danced to his songs. So it was only natural for him to be bewildered and in awe of him when SRK recently bumped into him and funnily said 'Vicky Pleej' to Rajkummar. In case you're not aware, it is a famous dialogue from Rajkummar's movie Stree and went viral when the movie was released.

Since childhood I've been saying his dialogues. What a wonderful feeling when he decides to say my dialogue this time. There's is no one like you @iamsrk sir. You've inspired me to become an actor. Biggest fan ever. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ #Stree

The funny chemistry between these two 'Raj' has got all their fans hooting to see them work together in a film now.
Super amazing video, Rajkummar. You guys should get together for a movie. I even have a story!

While SRK is on a sabbatical from working in movies and was recently seen on David Letterman's show as his guest, Rajkummar is currently soaring high on the success of Made In China which was recently released. View the full article
The latest Weekend Ka Vaar episode of Bigg Boss 13, hosted by Salman Khan, has left many fans disappointed. Many people didn't like Salman supporting contestant Siddharth Shukla and scolding Mahira Sharma even when she was the one who fell on the ground during the task.
Salman said in the weekly episode that everyone fights with Siddharth only to stay in the limelight. He also told Mahira that she shouldn't have gone near Siddharth during the task in which she got hurt. Later, Siddharth justified himself saying that he was just participating in the task and Mahira fell on her own.
Well, this didn't go down well with fans on the social media.

Besides, the 53-year-old host also got angry with Mahira when she called Siddharth, 'mahaan' and asked her to stop her drama. It was as if Salman didn't think that Siddharth was at any fault at all.
Pinpointing that Siddharth is the one running the show, Salman also said that all the people inside the house have a problem with the former and hence, keep fighting with him without any real reason.
However, fans didn't agree with Salman this time and took to Twitter and criticised the show and Sallu bhai for being biased and supporting Siddharth's aggressive behavior.
Check out some of the reactions here:

Wonder if it was Salman khan sister in place of mahira and if shukla would have thrown her in the air like he did with mahira I bet host reaction would've been different ð¥

However, a few people did support Salman for defending Siddharth. "This is a game. If you can compete then only play. Everyone has their own limitations. I would never run against Usain Bolt when I know this will make fun of me. Don't make it 'Man and Woman' thing," wrote one user.

Imagine you are watching the Indian cricket team play an ICC World Cup knockout match. With the game on the line, one of the Indian players drops a catch which leads to the team losing the match and the opportunity to win the title for the next four years.
You are furious at the player. You pick up your phone, go to Twitter and cuss the hell out of him and vent your frustration out. But you are not alone. There are thousands of people who are simultaneously doing the same.
Come on guys give him some time.He is still young and very talented. He is gonna be ace card in future just wait and watch. #RishabhPant pic.twitter.com/CWQhgWNr7I

That one player on the other hand is the focal point of all the negative comments and it is physically impossible for him to reply to each and everyone of your comments. What kind of impact will that have on the cricketer? What if something like that is happening to that athlete on a daily basis? Can he forget all the hate the next time he is in the middle of the ground and focus on the match?
“It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better,” said the 26th US President Theodore Roosevelt in his iconic 'The Man In The Arena' speech in 1910.
“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcomings, who knows the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

According to a 2008 research paper by The Sport Journal, the distraction caused by destructive criticism and hate mails lead to “negative mood responses, detrimental arousal and anxiety levels, and stress, thus resulting in the consumption of mental energy.”
Mental energy is arguably the most important aspect behind an athlete's ability to pay attention to the minute details of the game that leads to what we call a “good performance”. Noticing the swing in the ball, judging the kind of shot that needs to be played on a particular delivery, gauging your position to catch the ball meteoring towards the ground, everything requires mental energy, regardless of how great a player you are.
“It comes down to who's better on the day, who's in a better mental place, who's got more energy left, who's tougher when it really comes to the crunch. In tennis, there's always somebody who's going to be a little bit better because there are no draws in our sport." #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/w80XQZgTuR

It is a well known fact that there are certain athletes media publications prefer to write more about because they draw greater readership as compared to someone lesser known. It is also a well known fact that human beings love to criticise others and love to read about each others' failures.
Hence these athletes are targeted and regardless of their team winning or losing, they will be criticised and compared to other players. While whispering their achievements, highlight their weaknesses and give their readers the opportunity to do the same.
Throughout history, we have seen athletes falling prey to unwarranted media criticism and rapid downfall and even moving away from their sport because of it.
NFL player, Ricky Williams was an exceptional athlete, who played the game on a level higher than the rest of the people on the field during his college days. But having suffered from debilitating social anxiety disorder and extreme shyness, excessive media attention made him give up the game he was great at. Before quitting, Williams had confessed to dreading interviews could be seen wearing eye shades inside his helmet to avoid eye contact.
Remember when Ricky Williams talked about using weed as a self-medication method for treating anxiety and possibly early onset CTE symptoms and he was banned from the league https://t.co/oPUtltwY1p

Cases of being convicted for raping Miss Black America and biting off his opponent, Evander Holyfield's ear made boxer Mike Tyson an easy target to the media to get inside his personal space and write about every single thing he did. Having won almost every title there was to win for the ruthless American, the decline was as quick as he ascend to the top when his personal life used to be laid out on the front page of the tabloids almost every single day.
A day before Tyson got knocked out in the fourth round against Danny Williams, which signaled the end of his professional career, he was asked if all the media attention affected his performance and Tyson said: “It's my job to beat people and win fights…and it's their job to sell papers. Everything that could've been said about Mike Tyson has already been said. I don't take it personally like I use to.”
Even sisters Serena and Venus Williams have been criticised for being “unskilled players” who have dominated women's tennis only because they were “hard hitters”.
A similar case which is taking massive prominence in India in the modern era is that of the current Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who has been criticised for the smallest of mistakes on a national and sometimes even international level. View the full article
NoFap, like the name suggests, involves abstaining from habits such as porn and masturbation for extended periods of time, and if the reports are anything to judge by, it's been changing several lives for the better. Men have been reporting everything from better sleep patterns to healthier sex lives and even recovery from depression. Even actor and bodybuilder Terry Crews, who you may recognise from Brooklyn 99, has publicly shared his own struggle with this recovery, in a video that took over the internet back in 2016.
NoFap practitioners, who commonly call each other 'Fapstronauts', eventually began the #NoNutNovember trend - and over the last few years, this challenge has picked up immensely. Let's take a closer look at how guys have been dealing with it.
There's several men who picked up the challenge for the first time, and shared their thoughts across the first week of the month.

Started #NoFapNovember 3 days early. Day six for me. I took a shower for the first time in 3 weeks and cleaned my room today. Have a strange feeling in the middle of my forehead. Had a dream about God and the 5th dimension. I think i'm gonna make it. pic.twitter.com/0M6Xab8XNV

As with everything on the internet, there's always another side. Several users feel that #NoFap is excessive, and took to trolling. The sh*tposts came in hard.

Fortunately, some longtime abstainers stepped in to provide encouragement and information.
#PornHub awards are shaped like a molecule of seretonin - the hormone that is released when you ejaculate.
They know porn is a psy-op. They know porn is addictive and destructive.

#NoFapNovember this is Day 7. Typically during days 7-14 there is an increase in the temptation to relapse. First, this is normal so do not FREAK out. Second, it is time to Double Down. Third, be honest and accountable.

We all know that when it comes to wedding planning, grooms don't always make it to the top of the pecking order. Of course, in theory, it's their wedding, but in reality, they're ranked just below the bride, her parents, his parents, her siblings, his siblings, her BFFs (obviously), and maybe the planner, decorator and caterer!
He's usually the semi-panicked man in the background, juggling emotions on both sides to make sure everything goes okay.
Forget the celebrations, most gifts that you get are either household oriented or something bride-centric and that's exactly why every groom needs to insist on a gift registry, so the couple can get the gifts they both love, instead of a whole lot of jewellery, silver or saris!
Here's why you need a wedding registry:
1. You'll actually get what you want:
A gift registry lets the couple create a list of gifts, gift cards, holidays, cash or even charities they love, and share with their wedding guests. Most times, guests have no idea what the couple wants, and it's always harder to pick something for men! So here's your chance to let your loved ones know what's on your wishlist, so they don't wrack their brains and end up gifting something 'safe' like a lamp or silver Ganesha!
2. You're helping the world:
We all know that a lot of money is spent every year on wedding gifts, and most of them end up being re-gifted or wasted as the couple rarely wants it. By letting your guests know what you want, you show them the respect of saying that their time, thought and money is valuable and should be spent on something you'll cherish.
3. It's a financially sound decision:
Weddings are expensive. Setting up a home or going on a holiday after is even more so. Statistics show 80 percent Indian men go into debt post their wedding. By adding the things you need for your new home to your registry, you save substantial money and your guests have the satisfaction of knowing that their gift gave you precious memories or became a part of your new home!
4. You don't have to manage logistics:
Weddings can be hectic affairs and managing your gifts is a serious pain. They get broken, stolen, lost and the works. Plus there is the added headache of carrying everything from the venue to your house and then packing and storing the gifts you don't want. With a registry on Wedding Wishlist, all your gifts get delivered to you post the wedding with a complete list of messages and contributions. You outsource the mundane, and receive the gifts when you are ready to unwrap them!
5. It's free to try out:
To top it all, the Wedding Wishlist gift registry is entirely free! So even if you're apprehensive or unsure about creating one, give it a try among your close friends and family. The overwhelming response you receive from your guests, plus the joy you'll feel when you get the gifts you love will make you a true believer. View the full article
