Supermodel And Band Baja Bride Host Bharat Arora On The Importance Of Growing A Beard

Movember (or No Shave November) is a movement that originated in 2004 and is all about growing out one’s facial hair to raise awareness. It’s also all about being lazy, growing out your beard and looking good while doing so. Because, why not? We speak to 30 men—from all walks of life—who have mastered the art of grooming a good mug-rug, and are now ready to spill all the beans. Read on: Name: Bharat Arora Profession: Supermodel and Organic Farmer. Host: ‘Band Baja Bride’ © BharatArora It's November—how are you feeling, what are you eating, drinking and listening to? Feeling breathless, choked and disappointed with the current smog situation in Delhi. Eating all-organic-everything (I've got my own farm) and staying healthy. Listening to whatever-makes-my-behind-move and helps me unwind. Tell us about your beard timeline. How long have you been growing it? Any special beard stories:  My beard story goes back to many years; like I said I haven't seen myself clean shaven ever (even before it became a "trend"). Everyday makes for an interesting story when fashioning, grooming or simply managing this rug challenges my wits! © BharatArora Do you use products? If so, what are your favourite beard products? Not really, sometimes at shoots I’ll use a Mooch/beard wax, but that too sparingly. How do you maintain your beard? Tell us your daily routine? I don't indulge in much maintenance; perhaps I'm lucky not to need it. Having said that, regular trimming, washing the rug and combing it is an absolute must to avoid looking like a Neanderthal (laughs)! © BharatArora Beard do's and don'ts? Trim it regularly; wash thy face to keep it clean & healthy. Always know what type of beard type suits your face AND temperament (it requires patience that many men may lack). Fact: Own a beard comb! Has it changed your sense of style? Do you dress differently when you have a full beard? It's a part of me; I like to believe that any of my attributes contribute to my carriage of whatever style I'm sporting. A beard definitely adds to one's personality if carried confidently. © BharatArora Would you recommend grooms to sport a beard on their D-day? If so, how should they wear it? I sported noticeable stubble on my wedding day. Many grooms these days go for that look so as to appear more masculine and rough around the edges. It needs to be well groomed (trimmed, seemingly nourished), suited to one's face type and complementing of one's personality. There are no rules to growing a beard but certain etiquette does go a ‘long’ way. © NDTVgoodtimes

Shah Rukh Khan Totally Stole The Show At Koffee With Karan Last Night. Here Are The 6 Best Moments

The wait is over. ‘Koffee With Karan’ is back with its fifth season. Life has got purpose again. © StarWorld The first episode of ‘Koffee With Karan’ Season 5 aired last night and in all honesty, it left us kinda underwhelmed. The rapid fire was neither as rapid nor as fiery as we would have expected it to be, and Alia Bhatt could have been a lot more candid. But then, let’s also consider that she was pitted against SRK. And as the rule goes, you never win with SRK. The history of the last 4 seasons of ‘Koffee With Karan’ is proof enough.   It wasn’t the best we’ve seen on ‘Koffee With Karan’ but there were some moments that did make us laugh out loud! In case you missed the episode, here are the 6 best things that happened. 1. Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar finally ‘owned up’ to their ‘relationship’. Shah Rukh thought it would be a good idea if Karan leaked their nudes and Karan Johar said it was time the world knew he was ‘the other woman’ in SRK’s life. © StarWorld 2. That priceless moment when Karan Johar asked Alia Bhatt if she ever dated Sidharth Malhotra and she gave the most obvious denial ever. © StarWorld 3. Shah Rukh Khan explained why Karan Johar is the worst person to go out shopping with. There was something about Karan Johar entering the changing room with Shah Rukh Khan and embarrassing the life out of him in front of everyone that you just cannot miss, for the love of everything Bollywood. © StarWorld 4. Karan Johar introduced a new game, inspired by ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and Shah Rukh Khan delivered the best performance of his career with his ‘orgasmic’ act of cooking butter chicken. Pure hilarity! © StarWorld 5. There was also a section where Shah Rukh Khan read a nursery rhyme like Arnab Goswami and it’s something the nation definitely needs to watch.  SRK owned the show and how! © StarWorld 6. The show ended with Karan Johar being nice enough to promote Alia Bhatt and SRK’s next film ‘Dear Zindagi’ and Shah Rukh Khan said this to him in return, “That’s really sweet of you Karan, for someone who’s got nothing to do with the film.” © StarWorld

This Brutal Squatting Routine Can Add A Massive 45 Kilos To Your Squat In Just 13 Weeks

Squatting isn’t easy. It’s painful. It kicks your ass. It’s brutal. But if you want to grow, you have got to squat. The choice is yours – squats or chicken legs. From raising the levels of testosterone and growth hormone levels to fixing back problems and fat loss, squatting is a key to many doors. If you are a regular squatter and don’t deliberately skip gym on legs days, this routine is for you. If you don’t like leg days or are a beginner, you should stay away.  The Smolov Squatting Routine  © Tnation Smolov was designed by the Russian Master of Sports Sergey Smolov but was widely studied and applied by Pavel Tsatsouline who even published it first in ‘Powerlifting USA’. Again, before we begin to break it down, if your squat isn’t at least 100 kilograms, stay away. You still got homework to do. Also, most of the times you wouldn’t be able to work on any other body part.  How To Start The routine has five phases spread over 13 weeks. An introductory phase of two weeks, a four-week base cycle, a two-week switching phase, a four-week intense cycle and then finally, one-week de-load before maxing out. Week 1 And 2 – Introduction Phase To get you accustomed to the hell you’ll face, in the first week you squat 3 days in a row. Rest of the week will be stretching only. In the second week, you have to squat every other day. Since the weight increases week-wise, the weight remains the same during the first week. Note, 65% means 65% of your one rep max and so on, and the table below shows sets and repetitions.  Week Day Lifts 1 1 3 x 8 @ 65%, 1 x 5 @ 70%, 2 x 2 @ 75%, 1 x 1 @80% 1 2 3 x 8 @ 65%, 1 x 5 @ 70%, 2 x 2 @ 75%, 1 x 1 @80% 1 3 1 x 5 @ 80% 2 2 1 x 5 @ 82.5% 2 3 1 x 5 @ 85% Week 3, 4, 5 And 6 – Base Cycle You squat 4 times a week for 3 weeks. Say Monday 4 sets of 9 reps, Wednesday 5 Sets of 7 reps, Friday 7 sets of 5 reps and 10 sets of 3 reps on Saturday. Week Day Lifts 3 1 4 x 9@ 70% 3 2 5 x 7@ 75% 3 3 10 x 3@ 85% 4 1 4 x 9@70 + 20 pound increase from Week 3 4 2 5 x 7@ 75% + 20 pound increase from Week 3 4 3 7 x 5@80% + 20 pound increase from Week 3 4 4 10 x 3@ 85% + 20 pound increase from Week 3 5 1 4 x 9@70 + 30 pound increase from Week 3 5 2 5 x 7@ 75% + 30 pound increase from Week 3 5 3 7 x 5@80% + 30 pound increase from Week 3 5 4 10 x 3@ 85% + 30 pound increase from Week 3 6 1 Rest 6 2 Rest 6 3 Build to 1RM 6 4 Build to 1RM Week 7 And 8 – Recovery And Stretching Rest and only squat once a week while attempting to break your PR.  Also, stretching during this week is essential to help your legs recover faster. Week 7 And 8 – Recovery And Stretching Rest and only squat once a week while attempting to break your PR.  Also, stretching during this week is essential to help your legs recover faster. Week 9 To 12 – Hell Weeks Now that you are rested enough, it’s time to go heavier than ever. Lifting days become lesser but the loads become heavier. You might fail at a lot many lifts here. If you don’t, good. If you do, reduce the weights.  Week Day Lifts 9 1 1 x 3@ 65%, 1 x 4@ 75%, 3 x 4@ 85%, 1 x 5@ 90% 9 2 1 x 3@ 60%, 1 x 3@ 70%, 1 x 4@ 80%, 1 x 3@ 90%, 2 x 5@ 85% 9 3 1 x 4@ 65%, 1 x 4@ 70%, 5 x 4@ 80% 10 1 1 x 4@ 60%, 1 x 4@ 70%, 1 x 4@ 80% 10 2 1 x 3@ 65%, 1 x 3@ 75%, 1 x 3@ 85%, 3 x 3@ 90%, 1 x 3@ 95% 10 3 1 x 3@ 65%, 1 x 3@ 75%, 1 x 4@ 85%, 4 x 5@ 90% 11 1 1 x 3@ 60%, 1 x 3@ 70%, 1 x 3@ 80%, 5 x 5@ 90% 11 2 1 x 3@ 60%, 1 x 3@ 70%, 1 x 3@ 80%, 2 x 3@ 95% 11 3 1 x 3@ 65%, 1 x 3@ 75%, 1 x 3@ 85%, 4 x 3@ 95% 12 1 1 x 3@ 70%, 1 x 4@ 80%, 5 x 5@ 90% 12 2 1 x 3@ 70%, 1 x 3@ 80%, 4 x 3@ 95% 12 3 1 x 3@ 75%, 1 x 4@ 90%, 3 x 4@ 80% Week 13 – The Test Week Finally, if you are still with the programme and haven’t taken a week off, this is your final test.

Is This The New And Much Talked About 2000 Rupee Note? We Are A Little Skeptical

© Twitter So we’ve heard the silly news about a 200 rupee note, we’ve even heard news about a Rs 10,000 note (which was even a reality in 1938 and 1954) but we are actually excited about this piece of news. Who wouldn’t want to carry around a 2000 rupee note in their wallet? I mean, it might be hard to get actual change but we welcome the fresh notes, if this turns out to be true.  © Twitter © Twitter So, the news that there have been images of a Rs. 2000 note being circulated around the internet and there is no proof yet of how authentic these images are but Twitter is absolutely thrilled and the junta’s reaction has made it clear that people are more than happy to welcome this new addition to our banknotes. © Twitter

Apple Will Not Be Making A Successor To The iPhone SE Anytime Soon And Heres The Reason Why

Apple launched the iPhone SE this past March and most consumers didn’t even know it was out as they were looking forward to the launch of the iPhone 7. The device is quite popular amongst users who prefer a smaller screen but it seems like Apple will not be making a new iteration in 2017.  KGI securities, an analyst company, have come to the conclusion that the iPhone SE will not be making a return anytime soon. Ming-Cho Kuo, the analyst behind the claim, has had a very good track record when it comes to leaks and predictions. He even predicted the plans of Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, which later turned out to be true.  According to Kuo, Apple wants to boost sales of the iPhone 7 due to which they are not going to be promoting or releasing a newer version of the SE. Since their flagship phones are more expensive than the SE, it requires that extra push in order to maintain those higher profits.  The SE was launched as an alternative to the 6s simply because of its size. The 4-inch variant lacked the 3D touch but it still sold quite well during the initial launch phase. Meanwhile, the demand for the iPhone 7 and other premium phones by Apple is declining and Apple wants to encourage their users to upgrade to their flagship phones. ASAP.  Kuo has been a reliable source in the past but Apple is yet to confirm this claim since they are known to subtly let things go.

Benedict Cumberbatch Just Trolled Apple As He Presented A andamplsquoCool Toilet In This Ad

We’ve all heard about cool and smart toilets that Japan is known for. You have all sorts of buttons that will help you do unthinkable things. Well, over the weekend Dr. Strange and SNL made sure they mocked Apple’s style of over-the-top advertisements, which are sometimes underwhelming and iterative.  Benedict Cumberbatch presented an extremely funny ad where he unveiled a new ad in the same style as Apple’s iconic 1984 ad.  Just like in the well known ad, we see marching conformists and they are seated with a cistern behind them. The sketch then quickly fast-forwards to the present day and this extremely blunt parody takes things up a notch. The Apple Toilet comes in Jet Black.  Cumberbatch then enters with a hammer and starts using it in order to ‘unbox’ the toilet. This cool toilet or rather Cumberbatch then drops his pants and sits on this new cool toilet or rather ‘The Koohl Toilet by Kohler”.   What follows in this sketch is for you to see. Let’s just say, Cumberbatch looked mighty awesome as he sat on the iThrone.

An Abandoned Batman-Themed Nightclub Has Turned Into A House Of Horrors

Nothing is cooler than a Batman-themed night club, with a Bat beacon shining straight up in the sky. Such was the case back in 1995, when this club was the hippest place in the whole of Thailand, popular amongst the drug loving hippies there.  The once happening six storey party cove was shut down within 18 months following the charges of underage drug abuse. Not really surprising, is it?   © Dax Ward © Dax Ward Now 20 years later, the club is in absolute ruins. Still frequented by junkies, but of the different kind, the place reeks of years of abandonment. © Dax Ward American photographer Dax Ward visited the place that now resembles the Arkham Asylum from the Batman games we all know and love and came out with some spectacular shots that are every bit haunting.  © Dax Ward © Dax Ward © Dax Ward A harsh and necessary reminder of what time can do to forgotten things. © Dax Ward

Shahnawaz Alam Tells Us About The Pros and Cons Of Being A Model With Beard

Movember (or No Shave November) is a movement that originated in 2004, and is all about growing out one’s facial hair to raise awareness about health issues no one talks about—prostate cancer being one of them! It's essentially about celebrating life (and longevity) and how better to do it than being lazy, growing out your beard and looking good while doing so. Because why not?

We spoke to 30 men—who seem to have mastered the art of grooming a good mug-rug—on how it's actually done. Read on...

Name: Shahnawaz Alam

Profession: Model/Actor ShahnawazAlam It's November—how are you feeling, what are you eating, drinking and listening to? I’m in a happy, festive mood right now with Christmas and New Year right around the corner. However, I’m (kinda) sad because I’m on a low carb diet (grins). And currently tripping on Justin Bieber’s new track—'Let me love you'! 

The beard has been your signature look for a couple of seasons now. Are you looking to change it?

Well the tough-guy, heavily bearded look really suits me (a lot) so I am pretty keen on keeping it for some more time. But I might go clean shaven in Summer 2017. ShahnawazAlam Tell us about your beard timeline. How long have you been growing it. Any special beard stories: Thanks to my genes, my beard grows really fast. What you see in the picture, is me growing out my beard, for about 3 months now. I’ve been offered a lot negative roles thanks to my beard (laughs).

Do you use products? If so, what are your favourite beard products.

So, I shampoo (my beard) and use Beardo Oil regularly to keep it soft. You can get it online on Amazon! Shahnawaz Alam How do you maintain your beard? Tell us your daily routine. My routine is quite easy—I just trim it once in every two weeks, so that it doesn't get too rough and stay in shape!

Has it changed your sense of style? Do you dress differently when you have a full beard?

Yes, of course! The beard gives me a very serious (translation: grown up) look so I prefer wearing formals with it. ShahnawazAlam Being a model and keeping a beard is very challenging. How do you do it? Sometimes I’ll lose a shoot or a big show because of my beard—but that's a part of the (modelling) business. You'll have to learn to deal with it and ultimately, move on! Having said that, I’ve been booked (time and again) for some big projects, all thanks to my beard.

We only grow when we step outside our boundaries, so use today as a hopeful chance and trust the process. A photo posted by "Separate then Connect" (@meshyoga) on Sep 13, 2016 at 11:24am PDT
She’s totally in the moment when she’s teaching a class. I wonder how some of the men there are able to concentrate! Typical MeshYoga Style. Start by internally rotating the arm, then extension and gracefully walk off the mat. A photo posted by "Separate then Connect" (@meshyoga) on May 10, 2016 at 12:59pm PDT

Stop Going Gaga Over The Bodybuilder Vs Jujitsu Black Belt Video Itandamprsquos Not Real

One of the worst things to come along with Internet is the culture of ‘seeing and believing, without applying brains’. It’s not hard to see people backing viral content on the internet when the wave is on and soon coming to realize that what they vouched for was indeed fraudulent. The latest one that stands tall to this is the video of a Bodybuilder going one-on-one with a Jujitsu black belt.  Here, this is the video if you aren’t able to recall.   Well, the first ones to fall for this and share it are dudes with 11 inch arms and a plank for a chest with no more than a week into MMA or other martial arts classes. It’s not hard to come across people sharing it and demeaning the sport of bodybuilding. The truth is that the both the dudes in the video are friends and the video was just made for the fun of it. The jujitsu dude overpowers the bodybuilder because he’s combat trained. Bodybuilding is not a combat sport. Now if you are a mature athlete, you’ll understand that comparison of the two sports is senseless. I am not talking to the dudes who think they are higher mortals just because they took a month long beginner’s martial arts class. So, once and for all, please stop comparing two sports and different athletes!

Glutamine: Overrated Or Really Useful?

There’s no end to the list of bodybuilding supplements.  One of the supplements which is widely used and claimed to offer tons of benefits is, Glutamine. What is Glutamine? Is it really essential and helpful to achieve the desired gains? Let's find out- Understanding Glutamine Glutamine aka L-glutamine is the most abundant form of amino acid found in our muscles, liver, brain and blood plasma. Since, the body is capable enough to produce glutamine, it is categorized as a conditionally essential amino acid. When the body undergoes a physical or physiological stress in the form of exercise or illness, the internal glutamine level of body depletes. Kidneys, small intestine and the white blood cells are the main sites where glutamine is utilized. While it’s okay to not consume Glutamine for a moderately active person, it’s really essential for lifters who break themselves in the gym.  Also, Glutamine is considered to be a powerful anti-catabolic amino acid and offers numerous health benefits. Benefits of Glutamine:  · Glutamine enhances protein metabolism and supports the production of human growth hormone. · It enhances the glutathione level (body's natural antioxidant) and helps in maintaining body's immunity. · It supports glycogen formation and cell hydration. · Glutamine also supports the intestinal health. · According to a study, it also supports electrolyte absorption and hence, supports neuro-transmission.  Application of Glutamine Though glutamine offers numerous benefits, one cannot expect  muscle hypertrophy just on the basis of glutamine consumption. For optimum results, glutamine should be stacked along with the BCAA's and creatine. The best time to take glutamine is post workout, before bed and first thing in the morning. 10-20gram of glutamine per day is what we require for the best results. Note: If you are on the ketogenic diet, avoid glutamine as it is highly gluconeogenic in nature and therefore, will bring you out of the ketosis state.

The US Army Is Testing Real Life Super-Human Liquid Combat Suits

There’s no beating the American Army when it comes to spending on warfare modernization. Their $600 billion annual Military budget speaks for itself. The latest addition to their lethal arsenal will be some freaky real life ‘Iron Man’ suits. And no it’s not years ahead from now. The suits can be launched as early as next year. TALOS or Tactical Operator Light Operator Suit will help the soldiers see in the dark, jump higher than humanly possible and run at super high speeds. Upon getting shot, the exoskeleton will harden automatically, making it 100% bullet proof as well. Another version of TALOS is also in the making at MIT that will transform from liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current will be applied. It will also have a nerve system to monitor body temperature, heart rate and hydration levels etcetera. The MIT scientists call it the‘liquid armor’ and have been working on it for as long as 11 years now. Whenever this comes out, American military will again move at least a 100 years ahead of other military units in the world.

Shah Rukh Khan Appeared In An Interview With Anupama Chopra andamp Proved Once Again That Heandamprsquos The King Of Words

That SRK is the King of comebacks has been said out loud so many times, they might just start teaching that in schools soon. With that wit and sass, there’s no interview he hasn’t nailed. And yet, when you think the man couldn’t get better, he proves you wrong. Anupama Chopra recently interviewed him in Lisbon, where he was shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s ‘The Ring’ and he was at his cocky best. Check out some of the things he said. FilmCompanion Think Shah Rukh Khan’s idea of romance in films is screwed up? Well, he surely agrees. “I’ve made an art and profession out of loving women who are going to get married to someone, are already married or engaged. I run after them, and I get them from wherever they are. Sometimes through my charm, sometimes I throw them off the building. I think I have a problem.”   He was also quick to admit that actors are probably acting all the time.  “Actors have malice. Actors hug in public and abuse in private.” FilmCompanion He loves the fact that he’s all that we can never be and so not modest about it. “I can be very modest and say it’s a very regular life, it’s normal. But obviously it’s not normal. There’s no other place I’d rather be. I love being loved. I love being a big star. I love being in the public eye. I love being criticized. I love being controversy-ed. I love being Shah Rukh Khan.”   He also thinks he’s every woman’s dream guy. You want to call this cocky but well, you won’t. Because SRK. “I want to learn how to cook Italian food. I think it’s very sexy. And I’ve got all the other sexy qualities. I’ve got a tattoo on! I want to learn ten songs on a guitar and sing them to every woman in the world. 10 songs on a guitar, an open jeep, Italian food cooking abilities...looks, I have. Yeah, I’m a full package man, come on! I deserve to be a superstar. (laughs) And I’m humble. “   He’s unstoppable, he says. “If you throw me to the wolves, I’ll come back leading the pack. I really believe that.”  FilmCompanion He also went on to say that as long as they make films, there are going to be people outside Mannat waiting to meet him. SRK surely knows how to be cocky and still not cross the line. “As long as they make movies, there are going to be people outside Mannat to see me. I always had this belief – if I ever join cinema, I’d be the biggest star in the world. I may become that, I may not. But I wake up with that belief every day. When you’ve been working 25 years of your life and you’re working 18 hours a day, what keeps you going? Why should I find this exciting? Every morning to wake up and act without a break for 25 years. Nearly 12-13 years of my life have gone in doing this. What excites me is the belief. That till they make movies, they will love me. And when they’re not there (which will never happen), maybe it’s only because they’ve changed their places. So maybe I’ll go and buy a house there, I’m rich enough to do that!  It’s a belief of an innocent child and it can never be wrong.”   And of course, there were some very, very candid confessions that made up for all the high-headedness, if you could call it that. “A lot of the bravado, a lot of the stuff that I do on stage with the immense amount of confidence I have is 90% of what I’m not. It’s the desire to be that person.“   Not sure if he really meant this, but it sure left everyone impressed. “I don’t wear my stardom like a tuxedo. I wear like a T shirt. And that’s how it should be. If you’re a real star you don’t need to prove it in any other way than being gentlemanly, kind and cool.” FilmCompanion Talking of failures, he announced that he’s the most dangerous when he’s failed. And it sounded as inspiring as intimidating! “I’m such an impudent, incorrigible, uncontrollable, arrogant and self centered human being, if you tell me not to do it, I’ll do it again. And I’ll do it worse, if need be. I’m not happy that I failed. I wish I had done it  right. But failure encourages me even more.  Heartbreak is followed by ‘no I’m not letting this go’. Every time I fail, I’m dangerous. “   You can watch the whole interview here       Keep slaying with your words, SRK.

Heres How Ishaan Sethi Is Re-Inventing The Tech Nerd Look

Movember (or No Shave November) is all about being lazy, growing out your beard and looking good while doing so. We speak to 30 men—from all walks of life—who have mastered the art of grooming a good mug-rug, and are now ready to spill all the beans. Read on:  Name: Ishaan Sethi  Profession: Founder, PropheSee. © ishaansethi Tell us about your beard timeline. How long have you been growing it. Any special beard stories:  I've been growing my beard since Aug 2011. I've never kept it as a flowing beard, but more along the lines of a clean, matte & pressed look. Since growing my beard, I went clean shaven once (no other choice: I fucked up my shave on my own and it was all asymmetric so had to take it off). Couldn't recognize myself—in fact, didn't even want to—have never shaved it all off since.  Favourite beard products (if any):  Since my beard isn't a big flowy one, I don't have any dedicated products I use. However, in order to keep it at this length & shape, I have to trim & shave, a couple of times a week. Hence, I’ve invested in good after-shaves, razors, trimmers & moisturisers.  © ishaansethi Does it Help or hurt your chances of getting laid. Are guys into beard?   Definitely helps. Perhaps it has to do with confidence too—I feel a million times more confident when I have my beard. Besides, I also think while the lumbersexual trend may be fading (or faded), a well groomed beard can add oodles of maturity & appeal.  How do you maintain your beard. Tell us your routine—how often do you wash it etc?  Since it's not a heavy beard, I don't wash it etc. I trim and shave to keep it neat about twice a week & hit up my stylist once every two weeks. He's a pro at creating all the right lines so that it accentuates my jawline. For those conscious about their baby cheeks (like me!), the way he (my hairstylist) lines it up, my cheeks instantly go from chubby to you-want-to-play-with-them (grins)! © ishaansethi One beard do's and don'ts? Don't get a beard if you aren't going to maintain it, whatever the style may be. Nothing looks worse than a dirty, unkempt and all-over-the-place beard.  Has it changed your sense of style. Do you dress differently to fit your beard?  I wouldn't say I have changed my style to suit my beard. I got my beard when I was 19 and I'm now 25, over the last six years my style has changed distinctly given my moves from Portland, OR to Manhattan to Brooklyn, and now back to Delhi. I would say my style is rather eclectic but I've worked my beard into my sartorial choices rather than the other way around.  © ishaansethi Do you think beards will be huge in 2017?  Yes. Not the lumbersexual, ultra-manly look, but perhaps a more suave, kept, and slick look.

As A Mark Of Farewell And Respect This Collector Drove His Chauffeur To Work On His Last Day

The civil servants in our country enjoy a position of pivotal power that puts them on a high pedestal. Unfortunately, some of them are also infamous for abusing their power. But with great power comes greater responsibility and one such civil servant roved that for us. G Sreekanth, the collector of Akola district in Maharashtra just set a beautiful example of humility. On the last working day of his chauffeur Digambar Thak, the collector drove him to work himself, in his decorated car. © NDTV Digambar Thak retired after 35 years, serving almost 18 collectors in his duty span. G Sreekanth gave him the farewell and the respect that the hard working man deserved.  If only our country had more thoughtful men like G Sreekanth, this nation would be in safe and responsible hands.
