6 Easy & Effective Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Dandruff When You�re Stuck In Quarantine

While for most people, dandruff may be somewhat seasonal, there are a few who shed a lot throughout the year. Dandruff basically is the flaked skin of the scalp. So any minor skin condition around the scalp, or a dry or oily scalp, and youâll have constant dandruff, no matter what the season.
© iStock Trust us when we say this, it can get pretty embarrassing at times, as people assume that you are just dirty and do not shampoo your hair. Now, when youâre under quarantine, it may not seem to be a problem if you have âdirty hair.â However, leaving it untreated during this whole time will only aggravate the situation. 
© iStock As wonderful as they seem to be, shampoos donât always work. Yes, they may get you a clean mane for some time, probably a day or two. You need proper, medicated shampoos, and that for a prolonged time if you really want to see the results. However, god luck on getting your hands on them, given the current lockdown. Furthermore, if you were getting your hair treated at salons for dandruff, even that is out of the window for now.
© iStock Well, fret not. Here are some quick home remedies that you can try out during the length of the quarantine that should significantly reduce your dandruff shedding problem and help you get that awesome mane that you have been looking for.  Lemon Segments Massages © iStock You donât even need fresh lemons actually, for this. Just massage some partially squeezed, but clean lemon segments on your scalp for a couple of mins every day and wash it off with normal water. The lemon helps in neutralising the pH imbalance which is often the cause of dandruff and a lot of skin conditions.   Garlic & Honey Hair Pre-Conditioner © iStock Slightly crush a few cloves of garlic and let it be for a few minutes, as it oxidises. Add a few teaspoons of honey, and mix it will. Using one of the cloves from the resulting mixture, rub the honey on your scalp, really well. Garlic is particularly useful when it comes to treating dandruff. A lot of the organic anti-dandruff products that you see on the market, uses garlic as one of their ingredients,  A Tea Tree Oil Massage © iStock As much as we love a good coconut oil champi, tea tree oils work far better on dandruff ridden scalps. A good and thorough massage with some tea tree oil works wonders on your scalp and keeps dandruff at bay for a considerable time. Plus, the other nutrients in the oil is really great for the hair follicles and the general health of your scalp. Baking Soda, Curd, and Mint Mask © iStock This oneâs a little tricky to get done. With that being said, it is also the one that has the maximum payouts. In a small bowl full of curd, mix some baking soda, and some crushed mint leaves. Ensure that the curd hasnât soured, when you pick the curd. Mix all of them well, and apply the paste as a mask on your hair and scalp. Wash it off using lukewarm water and a mild shampoo if it is needed. Repeat this twice a week for 3 weeks, and you should see visibly reduced dandruff. Onions © iStock Onions have many nutrients that have great antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Furthermore, it helps with blood flow and blood circulation in your scalp. Simply blend an onion in a food blender and apply the resulting paste on your scalps and wash off. Alternatively, you can also thinly slice the onion and rub the slices on your scalp. Aloe Vera © iStock Actually, all you need is the aloe vera sap for your scalp. Just massage the sap properly onto your scalp and let it rest thoroughly for about 20 mins, before washing it off with lukewarm water. Aloe Vera not only helps in cleaning up your scalp, it also works really well in regulating your scalpâs hydration.

Meet The Indian Sports Stars Who've Beaten 'Fitness Icon' Virat Kohli In 'Yo-Yo Test'

Arguably one of the most popular sportspersons in the country, Virat Kohli has carved his own niche in cricket and has emerged as a befitting role model for the country's youth over the years. The Indian captain is one of the best batsmen in the modern era of the gentleman's game. His artistry with the willow and ability to deliver under pressure continue to aid Team India in dire situations. 
The world of cricket is not alienated to cricketers rising through the ranks and taking their place amongst the greats of the game. But, there is something about the Delhi cricketer. It's not just the batting prowess of the Indian captain, but his discipline towards fitness that has allowed him to reach the pinnacle of the sport.  One of the fittest players around in international cricket, Kohli is an absolute livewire in the field. From converting ones into twos, batting for long hours to saving crucial runs in the field, Kohli has not only managed to reach his full potential, but has also sparked a fitness revolution in Team India.  © Instagram/@mayank.dagar The 21-year-old spinner, who is not in contention presently, was a part of Kings XI Punjab in the 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). 
Dagar, the nephew of Virender Sehwag and represents Himachal Pradesh in domestic cricket, has played 11 first-class, 10 List A and 13 T20 games till now. Karun Nair  View this post on InstagramPosted @withrepost ⢠@kunalkapoor09 In order to be explosive, you need to train explosive. You still need to have a good foundation in relative strength though, in order to maximise being explosive/powerful. You donât get to run without learning how to walk do you? . Mimicking the Trap Bar Jumps with Kettlebells & @karun_6 - Trap bar jumps are a great way to improve explosive strength,speed & power. Can be used to help increase force production and Rate of Force Development. There are a lot of athletes who are extremely gifted on the field but arenât technically equipped to carry out Olympic lifts (cleans,snatches)in the gym,especially when they are newly exposed to it close to an event/tournament. Trap bar jumps provide a good and relatively safer alternative to an Olympic lift, as they are technically less demanding and can be learnt in quick time. That being said, the athlete must have good landing mechanics and good eccentric strength in order to absorb the forces of the landing in this exercise. . Ps - Your talent is no good if you arenât playing on the field so train smart. ___________ ⢠⢠#strength #strengthandconditioning #athlete #sport #cricket #coach #tripleextension #jump #power #legs #trainhard #trainsmart #hardworkbeatstalentA post shared by (@karun_6) In October 2018, the Indian selectors had raised a few eyebrows with their selection for the two Tests against West Indies. 
The likes of Rohit Sharma and Karun Nair were left out which saw the latter questioning the then MSK Prasad-led selection committee. It was then that Nair made a claim which still remains unbelievable.  Claiming to be the fittest player in Team India, Nair had said: "Iâve been spending a lot of time with (Shanker) Basu Sir, our trainer and Sanjay Bangar sir as well, our batting coach. Obviously a lot of throwdowns and a lot of net sessions. But mainly I have been spending time with Basu Sir. According to him, I am the fittest person in the team right nowâ. Sardar Singh View this post on InstagramYou are in control of yourself. Get in the gym. Work hardA post shared by (@sardarsingh8) Arguably one of the most iconic sportspersons in the country, Sardar Singh was one of the most vital cogs in the Indian hockey team during his playing days. 
He became the youngest captain to lead India in 2008 when he marshalled the troops at Sultan Azlan Shah Cup. In 2015, he was awarded the prestigious Padma Shri for his contributions to Indian hockey. And, in 2018, he called time on his international career.  While the list of achievements for Sardar remains long, there is one particular feat that continues to turn heads in the sports fraternity. Months before his retirement, Sardar made a sensational comeback to the Indian hockey team.  Dropped from the squad due to his inconsistent speed on the turf, Sardar put in the long hours and sweated it out in the training sessions to achieve the necessary fitness levels. And, while doing so, he also recorded a sensational score of 21.4, currently the highest registered in Indian sports, in the 'Yo-Yo Test'.

Amid Lockdown, Kerala Government Wins Hearts By Addressing Labourers As 'Guest' & Not 'Migrant'

Marking a refreshing twist in a stateâs approach towards its migrant workforce, the Kerala government has set a precedent by referring to the migrant labourers in the state as 'guest labourers'. 
Amid the unforeseen ongoing situation of a global pandemic, that has put countries around the world in complete lockdown, hundreds and thousands of migrant and daily wage labourers are stranded with nowhere to go.  Showing compassion at such a time, the Kerala government, as always, is leading by example by showing a proactive approach, not just towards handling the Coronavirus outbreak but also for its treatment of such workers, whom Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, as well as other government officials, now refer to as 'Atithi thozhilalikal'.  Atithi means guest and thozhilalikal means mazdoor or labourer.  Every good gesture must be appreciated and this particular observation was made by a journalist on Twitter who referred to this as âcreating new words/cultures during #CoronaCrisisâ.  In Kerala, thereâs a new word to refer to migrant workers. Itâs guest labourers (Atithi thozhilalikal). As the CM to officials started using it, itâs becoming a common word there, I am told. creating new words/culture during #CoronaCrisis â Liz Mathew (@MathewLiz) March 27, 2020 Interestingly, the term was first coined by the state's Finance Minister Thomas Issac during his Budget speech in February 2018. 
The idea behind this was to commemorate the 3.5 million migrant labourers in Kerala and honour them for their contributions to the stateâs labour force.  The journalistâs post on Twitter about the Vijayan government honouring the workers did not go unappreciated on social media.   Kerala is setting so many examples â Anjali Ojha (@ojhaanjali) March 27, 2020Itâs so much better than Anyasamsthaana thozhilalikal tbh! â Miss Mojo Jojo (@shw8ster) March 27, 2020This word declared on Pinarayi govt's budget on 2018.
CM has been using this beautiful word ever since â aмal ĸrιÑнnan (@marchformass) March 27, 2020Hats off Kerala!

We reveal who we are in times of crisis.

And Kerala is shining through. â Tanushree Mainrai (@MainraiTanu) March 27, 2020Took its time, but glad its a thing now. Work is worship. â BrawlyPooch (@MeanderingWonk) March 27, 2020Thatâs a much better word to address them. Kerala canât survive without them. I wish the Middle East and South East Asian governments address us like that. â comfortablynumb (@TapTap_80) March 27, 2020However, some people also expressed concern stating that merely renaming migrant workers as 'guests' would not solve the crisis of thousands of workers as jobs are drying up right now.  To add to that, in the absence of public transport during the lockdown, many were forced to undertake arduous journeys back home on foot.  What about this?While we Tamils here are supporting keralites Kerala govt at this time of crisis forcefully evicted and dropped tamil migrant workers at borders without providing food and water.. â The Postman (@kumarikandan) March 27, 2020Meanwhile, will you please find out whether Vijayan's Govt did arrange exit of many such 'guest workers' by special trains to Assam and Santragachi in the past few weeks???? Have been asking this to fellow malayali WARRIORS and NONE, I repeat NONE have cared to respond @seemay â V. Krishna Ananth (@VKrishnaAnanth) March 27, 2020yeah thts wht we need now, new words.. slow clap for the CM #ChinaVirus19 â Low IQ Intellectual (@LowIQ18) March 27, 2020Sounds good and lessens the guilt but on critical thinking itâs OXYMONORIC. which culture ask guest to do paid work ? â bhupen (@bhupendubey) March 27, 2020Nevertheless, addressing them as 'guests' instead of migrants is surely a positive shift in the approach towards them which should be followed by other states too.  Moreover, the government has also set up community kitchens for guest labourers to ensure smooth supply of food for people hit by the crisis.

7 Bollywood Actors Who Have Also Written Books, Proving They Can Do More Than �Just Act�

People often like to say that it doesnât take much to become an actor these days. Of course, not all of it is fair when they say itâs a matter of good looks, decent acting skills, admirable dancing calibre or a just great âlegacyâ to put someone up there for the world to see on the silver screen. We all know of some great talent that Bollywood has discovered over the years. Actors who have succeeded solely based on their talent and hard work. And as if that is not enough, many of them have proved themselves twice over by not only becoming popular Bollywood actors but also published authors who have distinct titles to their name. Check out these 7 Bollywood actors who have written books too: 1. Emraan Hashmi  © Instagram Following his son Ayaanâs successful fight against cancer, Emraan penned The Kiss Of Life which talks about his journey and the struggles his family faced while Ayaan went through the ordeal. 
The book is also aimed towards helping others who have family members fighting against cancer. 2. Nawazuddin Siddiqui © BCCL The very talented method actor co-authored An Ordinary Life with Rituparna Chatterjee which was published in 2017.  The autobiography traces Nawazuddinâs journey as a struggling actor from UPâs Budhana and how he moved from doing theatre to big-banner Bollywood films over the years. 3. Naseeruddin Shah © Twitter Naseeruddin Shah wrote his own memoir titled And Then One Day which takes the readers through his early years as a Meerut-born, catholic-taught, leading theatre persona who made a mark for himself as an actor in Bollywood. 4. Ayushmann Khurrana © Instagram/Isha Bhansal A 2015 publication, Cracking The Code was co-authored by Ayushmann with his wife, director Tahira Kashyap. The book talks about the making of the Bollywood star through his personal journey in the industry and offers guidance to aspiring actors. 5. Anupam Kher  © Pinterest Veteran actor Anupam Kher has written two books so far. Aap Khud Hi Best Hain was his first title which came out in 2011 and is a self-help book that helps readers find inner happiness and change their life.  His second book is called Lessons Life Taught Me, Unknowingly which is the actorâs honest-to-god autobiography. 6. Pankaj Kapur © Twitter Theatre stalwart Pankaj Kapurâs Dopehri was first written in 1992 as a one-act play which earned him a lot of critical acclaim and was much appreciated by the audience. It was finally published in 2019 as a novella by Harper Collins. 7. Rishi Kapoor  © Twitter The outspoken yesteryear Bollywood star penned his autobiography Khullam Khulla which came out in 2017. The memoir is every bit like Kapoor himself with tons of unapologetic spilling of beans. BONUS: Not many of us know this, but superstar Shah Rukh Khanâs own memoir titled Twenty Years In A Decade has been in the pipeline for some time now and reportedly, SRK is writing the book to help his daughter Suhana learn from his experiences ahead of her Bollywood debut.

Animals Are Enjoying The Lockdown By Exploring Empty Streets As Indians Stay Locked Inside Homes

It's extremely important for everyone in the world to stay the eff inside, since it's the only way to stop the spread of coronavirus. I don't even have to explain it to anyone that stopping the pandemic is the only priority for the entire planet right now. Till now, Indians who can stay inside seem to be following the protocol and are self-isolating, which is great news. On a not so positive not, those who had no other option but to step out were thrashed by the police. But, with almost everyone staying indoors, we get to see something we don't usually see - animals and birds thriving and living their best lives. A few people have been sharing videos and pictures of animals seemingly reclaiming the land and well, what a sight! One video from Chandigarh showed a Sambar deer taking a zebra crossing on a wide, empty road that divides Sector 9 and Sector 10 in the city. Sec 9 - 10 dividing road Chandigarh, Nature Re-Claming it's territory. pic.twitter.com/Glt1i3Rd7Y â Mohammad Ghazali (@ghazalimohammad) March 27, 2020I'm not sure about the facts, but still looks super interesting!

Neem tree shedding it's golden leaves, mango tree blooming, birds chirping, squirrels chit chatting under the spell of slight drizzle. No humans in sight.

I live in Calicut city, Mavoor road and this is a common visitor in our home not during day time though. â Dichie (@Dichie15) March 26, 20202020 is turning out âdifferentâ in more ways  than we can fathom. With humans being caged inside, the animals are tasting the sweetness of freedom.

COVID-19: UK PM Boris Johnson Becomes The Latest Victim & 'Get Well Soon' Messages Pour In

In an unfortunate development, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has become the latest victim of the deadly Coronavirus, which has already infected more than three lakh people and claimed the lives of over 20,000 people across the globe. 
In a video posted on Twitter today, the Prime Minister confirmed that he had developed mild symptoms that included âa temperature and persistent coughâ over the last 24 hours.  Therefore, on the advice of the chief medical officer, he took a test which unfortunately returned positive for COVID-19.  © Reuters The Prime Minister was last seen on Thursday, clapping for the healthcare workers, as part of a nationwide gesture to pay gratitude to the NHS staff. 
"It was very moving last night to join in that national clap for the NHS," his Tweet read.  âOver the last 24 hours, I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the governmentâs response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this.#StayHomeSaveLivesâ (sic), he added.  Over the last 24 hours I have developedmild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.

In 2013, he voluntarily retired and decided to change his way of life. This conviction went a long way.  He started taking care of his skin, hair, and beard. This is apparent when you see his Instagram posts. His beard would any day give most men a run for their money. While maintaining a beard anyway is no easy job, maintaining a stunning silver beard like that comes with an elaborate beard grooming routine, which we think he's followed through diligently to get here.

Hacker Who Stole Xbox Series X Source Files From AMD Has Explained Why She Did It

AMD has announced that a hacker stole source files for several of its GPUs. This particular news was also bothering the Xbox division at Microsoft, because the stolen files also include information about the Xbox X series among other details. The stolen files contain details for AMD's Navi 10 and Navi 21 GPUs. According to The Verge, the stolen Arden GPU is the codename for the next-gen Xbox Series X console.  © Xbox It's also worth pointing out that the hacker has spoken to a publication to explain why she did it. According to her, the files, including the Xbox Series X files, were unexpectedly extracted from a computer/ server that she managed to hack. Yes, extracting these valuable files wasn't even her plan, to begin with.
However, after learning about the nature of the files, she decided to extract them to see if there's any lucrative buyer out there. So she essentially stole the files because they were simply sitting unprotected on AMD's systems. AMD seems rather calm and composed about the whole situation. The company said the stolen graphics IP is not core to the competitiveness or security of their products. They're planning to sue her for what she did, but the hacker doesn't seem to be bothered at all. © YouTube/ Austin Evans "I havenât spoken to AMD about it because I am pretty sure that instead of accepting their mistake and moving on, they will try to sue me. So why not just leak it to everyone?" she said.

7 Times Rana Daggubati�s Sense Of Style Was Better Than Bollywood Actors

We have said it a number of times, and weâll say it again -  when it comes to fashion and style, our Southern stars often give our Bollywood actors a really tough run for their money. Heck, there have been times, when they outclassed some of the best-dressed men of Bollywood, and that too, by a margin. And if there has been one southern actor who has time and again raised the bar, as well as the temperature using his sense of fashion and style, it has to be Rana Daggubati.
© Instagram/ranadaggubati It does not matter whether he is playing the villain or portraying the lead role, there is simply no denying the fact he has an alluring and enchanting presence on the screen. And, if we consider his airport looks, and his public appearances, he carries that same personality and presence, with the same grace and panache. 
© Instagram/ranadaggubati Of course, over the years, we have come to love the manner in which he carries his beard. We have seen it at all sorts of lengths, and to be very honest, we actually kinda dig the various ways he has groomed his beard.
© Instagram/ranadaggubati One of the best things about Rana is his towering height. At 6â3â, it is actually much easier for him to pull off certain kinds of clothes and silhouettes. This sense of machismo was at times further accentuated when he had that broader shoulder and a body frame that was indeed intimidating. However, ever since he has lost that bulk, he actually has been managing to pull off pieces in a better way. Here are just some instances from the countless number of times when Rana Daggubatiâs style, simply killed it. A rare picture where instead of his now iconic beard, he donned a rather simple pornstar moustache. Oh, and those rimless glasses with that classic, black suit and white shirt? Simply timeless. © Instagram/ranadaggubatif A sort of monochromatic outfit, with that black and white stripey suit and that black shirt, this outfit works rather well for Rana, in every way. His already tall and leaning frame gets highlighted better.
© Instagram/ranadaggubati The bliss of an understated, properly vintage frame design sitting well with your face shape, is a joy only a few people are aware of. Rana surely is one of them.
© Instagram/ranadaggubatif With this well-structured suit in a rather unusual colour, Rana looks as suave as a man can be. Plus, that timepiece and that printed pocket square, along with that turtleneck shirt just adds to the appeal of the ensemble.
© Instagram/ranadaggubatif An outfit that is quintessentially smart casual, we love how using just the right kind of accessories, the ensemble gets lifted higher. A rather technical seeming watch, paired again, with, a very vintage looking pair of sunglasses.
© Instagram/ranadaggubatif One of those rare images where Rana can be seen without a beard. Well almost. We particularly like the manner in which the stripey grey shirt has been given a whole new dimension with the basic blazer. Again, a watch just gives it the touch that is needed.
© Instagram/ranadaggubatif A denim shirt with a mandarin collar and a blue pair of jeans makes Rana look rather dapper. We particularly like the slit pocket with the button on the shirt. As commonplace as it may seem, it gives the outfit a character. And again, minimalism with the accessories is sort of his signature move.
© Instagram/ranadaggubatif Seriously guys, we all should be taking notes from this man.

13+ Artists To Tune Into This Weekend Because God Knows When We�ll Attend A Gig Next

While COVID-19 hasnât shown any mercy whatsoever to several industries around the world, one of the worst-hit happens to be the previously-thriving culture of live music, all across the worldâs biggest and smallest venues. Quarantine concerns have decimated all chances of people gathering together in spaces to catch their favourite acts - itâs a shockwave thatâs disrupted the workflow and incomes of your neighborhood singer-songwriter to Grammy-winning, global stars. Not quite fun for those of us whoâd prefer to spend our evenings at rock gigs or dancing them away alongside our favourite DJs - fortunately, not all is lost. After musicians began sharing bite-sized sessions with their fans on social media to keep spirits up, several more have begun to take the quarantine in earnest and organise livestream concerts of sorts - a trend previously championed by Chris Martin of Coldplay thatâs now something of a necessity for artists all over. âSo many people are dealing with a lot of stress right now, trauma, anxiety, all those things,â shares musician John Legend. âAnd they donât know what to do. And a lot of musicians and artists and entertainers are unable to go out and do the thing that we do best, which is perform live at venues with lots of people,â he told The Associated Press. âSo weâre trying to find ways to stay in touch with people and give them some love.â
Here are some acts taking place over the next few days for all you music lovers that you just canât afford to miss - starting off with International acts and moving into Indian ones:

�Ramayan� Is Coming Back On DD National & People Can't Wait To Relive The Good Old Days

People asked for it, and their wish actually came true. As the lockdown progresses, people are looking for anything and everything to keep themselves occupied and entertained for who knows how many more days. The need of the hour is for people to stay home and only leave to get essentials during this pandemic. Well, what better way to keep people from leaving the house and glued to their televisions, than a show that literally did just that back in the day, even without the lockdown? I'm, obviously, talking about Ramanand Sagar's iconic show Ramayan. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting announced that the show will be retelecasted on DD National starting tomorrow.

Irreplaceable James Bond Guns Worth Rs 1 Crore Stolen In London & We Wonder Who The Villain Is ?

If youâre a fan of the James Bond Franchise, you know that a few weeks ago, the 25th Bond movieâs trailer dropped and it will be Daniel Craigâs final stint with the franchise as James Bond. While we are still recovering from the fact that the film, which was earlier supposed released in April 2020 has been pushed to November 2020 due to the outbreak of the pandemic, some more shocking news related to the franchise has shooked fans. Recently, five guns which were used in James Bond movies, got stolen from a house in North London.  © Eon Productions The guns included the last weapon used by actor Roger Moore while playing 007. Sounds like a plot twist in a Bond movie itself right? The shocking part is that the burglary has been estimated to be around Rs. 92 lakhs ( around 100,000 pounds) !
© Eon Productions The guns that have been stolen include the Cheetah Pistol used in the Die Another Day, Beretta Tomcat pistol with laser attachment and LIama 22 which were also used in the same film. Others included Walther PPK which appeared in the movie A View To A Kill and a Revolver Smith and Weston 44 Magnum from Live and Let Die. Now, this cannot get any sadder! Inspector Paul RFidley said, "Many of these items are irreplaceable. For example, the Magnum is the only one in the world ever made in which the whole gun is finished in chrome. It has a six-and-a-half inch barrel and wood grips. The Walther PPK was the last gun used by Roger Moore in A View to a Kill." © Eon Productions Also, the neighbors saw three burglars who drove away in a silver vehicle and took the guns along. Hereâs what people have to say about it- 'Gun'dey log ! â ஸà¯à®°à¯ ராமà¯ð®ð³ (@NothingwhenIgo) March 27, 2020Q furious after James Bond firearms stolen, https://t.co/iTg9APCMYK â Svetlana (@RealSLokhova) March 27, 2020The #Bond gun was stolen by #Russia-n spies to inflict reputational damage on #MI6 (or/and MI5?) and western democracies.

New #JamesBond movie plot right there!

Btw, how are the #Skripal-s? I hope #covid-free.

#007 #DeepState â aanpakkuh (@aanpakkuh) March 27, 2020It sounds like a scene out of the movie itself. We hope the police find and recover all the guns soon.

10 Regional Songs That Inspired Mainstream Bollywood Songs & Became Chartbusters Twice

Bollywood movies are known for their peppy dance numbers and soulful ballads that leave an indelible mark in peopleâs hearts and make fans come back for them again and again. However, an important aspect about Bollywood songs that we cannot overlook is that many of these chartbuster songs are inspired by or adapted from regional songs. These inspired songs often become equally popular with the Hindi speaking population who do not realise that these are not original compositions. Just like these 10 Bollywood songs which were inspired by regional Indian songs and became super hits. 1. Dilbaro (Raazi) - Khanmaej Koor The opening stanza of this song is made up of a very popular Kashmiri wedding song titled Khanmaej Koor and is sung when the bride is leaving her childhood home to move in with her in-laws.  2. Chogada Tara (Loveratri) - Ranglo This song is inspired by a very popular Gujarati song Ranglo that is commonly sung during dandiya raas at the time of Navratri celebrations in the state.  3. Arey Pyaar Karle (Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan) - Je Jon Premer Bhab Jaane Na This disco number inspired by the 80s peppy beats is the Hindi adaptation of Bengali song titled Je Jon Premer Bhab Jaane Na from the movie Sangsar.
4. Engine Ki Seeti (Khoobsurat) - Engine Ki Seeti Mein This hit number from Sonam Kapoor-Fawad Khan starrer Khoobsurat is an adaptation of a popular Rajasthani folk song by the same name.
5. Tu Laung Main Elaichi (Luka Chuppi) - Laung Laachi This hit song from Luka Chuppi that found many takers even on Tik Tok was the Hindi adaptation of Punjabi song titled Laung Laachi by Mannat Noor.
6. Soja Zara (Baahubali 2) - Kannaa Nidurinchara  Though all the songs from the Baahubali franchise were adapted from Telugu to Hindi, Madhushreeâs Hindi rendition of Kannaa Nidurinchara called Soja Zara became hugely popular with the masses.
7. Tere Bin (Simmba) - Tere Bin Nahin Lagda  This one from Ranveer Singhâs Simmba is inspired by a classic Punjabi number by renowned Pakistani qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan called Tere Bin Nahin Lagda.
8. Muqabla (Street Dancer 3D) - Mukkala Mukabla This hit Prabhudeva dance number from Street Dancer 3D is an adaptation of Tamil song titled Mukkala Mukabla which was originally composed by A R Rahman for the film Kadhalan. 
9. Soch Na Sake (Airlift) - Soch This Arijit Singh song became a chartbuster when it came out in 2016. However, this Hindi version of the song is inspired by Hardy Sandhuâs superhit Punjabi song Soch. 10.

Ha ha ha .. Manzoor hai.. desh aur Maanav hith mein -Manzoor hai. https://t.co/XPbbOW77lc â Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) March 25, 2020Since no one is able to step out of their homes anymore, even celebrities are making the most of this time.

26 Years Ago, Azharuddin Took A Decision That Eventually Made Sachin Tendulkar A Living God

The most complete batsman of his time. The most prolific run-scorer of all time. The biggest cricket icon the gentleman's game has ever known. A living God amongst ordinary men with the unique ability to evoke passion amongst cricket fans. Sachin Tendulkar needs no introduction when it comes to cricket. 
Arguably one of the greatest cricketers of all time, Sachin Tendulkar pretty much achieved everything one can dream of in his illustrious career. From his majestic batting, admirable demeanour to records galore, few have come close to matching the Little Master's ability to capture the imagination of fans across the globe.  Boasting a full range of rage of orthodox shots, Tendulkar's batting was based on the purest principles - perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making and, above all, anticipation (an intangible quality, possessed by few greats, which continues to elude some of the best in the business even now).  © Reuters But, before Tendulkar eventually became the world-dominating, bowler-slaying 'Master Blaster', he was a youngster whose batting genius did earn him an international debut at the age of just 16, but he was still a long way from reaching the pinnacle of batting charts. 
Making his debut in 1989, Tendulkar had already garnered a lot of attention after becoming the youngest cricketer to don Team India jersey. Then, his baptism by fire and blood at the hands of the famed Pakistan bowling including Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis quickly turned the young boy into a man.  However, despite arriving on the international circuit with heroics in the Ranji Trophy and a promise of unmatched batting talent, Tendulkar had his fair share of struggles to find his feet early on. He was dismissed for golden ducks in his first two One-Day Internationals (ODIs).  The right-hander's first fifty came in his ninth ODI. He did score 283 runs in his first ICC World Cup in 1992, but post that, his batting form dipped.  © Reuters Following India's poor run at the 1992 World Cup, Tendulkar struggled in the away series against South Africa. He could only manage to score 144 runs, with the highest score of just 32 runs, in 7 ODIs. His poor run continued in 1993 where, despite starting the year with a brilliant 82 against England at home, he scored just 319 runs in 18 ODIs with a lone fifty to his name. 
The pressure was mounting on the 'Little Master' to come through, but the performances he was looking for continued to elude him. During the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at home, Tendulkar recorded scores of 1, 11 and 52. Then came the away series against New Zealand where Tendulkar began the proceedings with a 15-run knock in the first ODI at Napier.  Losing the first ODI and taking note of Tendulkar's batting woes, then Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin asked his under-pressure teammate to open the innings for the first time. And, the move didn't just work like a charm but also sowed the seeds of one of the best opening batsmen of all-time.  © Reuters With spinner Rajesh Chauhan (3-43) leading India's bowling charge, the Kiwis were bundled out for just 142 runs. In reply, India were given a flying start by Tendulkar and Ajay Jadeja who added 61 runs for the first wicket. While Jadeja lost his wicket with 18 runs to his name, Tendulkar went hammer and tongs against the Kiwis, slamming a blistering 49-ball 82. 
On this day, 26 years ago, his strokeful knock paved way for India's seven-wicket win and earned him the 'Man of the Match' award. The turn of events that day kickstarted a golden era that saw Tendulkar rising to the pinnacle of the sport.  Batting at the top, he continued his fine run with scores of 63, 40, 63 and 73 in his next four ODIs. And, after playing 78 ODIs, Tendulkar reached notched up his maiden hundred in 1994 Singer World Series against Australia.  #OnThisDay in 1994

The start of something special@sachin_rt opened the batting (82 off 49) for the first time in ODIs in Auckland and it triggered a golden run! pic.twitter.com/PQdkZb9fWi â BCCI (@BCCI) March 27, 2020 Batting in the middle-order, for a man who had not scored a single hundred in his first five years of ODI cricket, Tendulkar went on to slam 49 tons in ODIs and another 51 in Test cricket - a total of 100 hundreds. While Tendulkar's batting skills are rightly credited for his success, if it wasn't for Navjot Singh's stiff neck and Azhar's decisive call, we wonder how things might have panned for Indian cricket.  âI was thinking of asking him to open for some time. He was scoring 30s or 40s or 50s or 60s, scores that were good enough for someone batting down the order. But I thought we were wasting such a good attacking batsman batting so low. For me, he was the No. 1 batsman in the team. So, I made him open,â Azhar said while explaining his decision.

Here's Your First Look At The Upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro And A Striking New Color Variant

Yesterday, we got our first look at the specs of the upcoming OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. As usual, OnePlus is eyeing to launch some of the most powerful phones. And today, we have got our first look at the OnePlus 8 Pro, thanks to the leaked render images that showed up online. The popular tipster OnLeaks has given us our first look at the OnePlus 8 Pro in a striking new green color. We've already seen the leaks of OnePlus 8 Pro before, but this one is the most detailed render yet, and it shows off the device from all four sides. And here comes your very first look at an official press render showing the #OnePlus8Pro from all angles + final specs sheet!

One behalf of my Friends over @igeeksblog -> https://t.co/1bNUUVvYJf pic.twitter.com/zJr8i2MoOE â Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) March 26, 2020Before we talk about the device itself, we'd like to point out that this colour is new. It looks more like aquamarine color than green, however, it remains to be seen how it would look in person.
About the device itself, we can see a punch-hole display with a cutout for the camera. Looks like OnePlus is done with notches and pop-up sliders as seen on the older OnePlus phones. The punch hole appears to be very small in size, but again, we haven't had the chance to see the device in person yet.

Now that we are stuck in our homes, there isnât much to do apart from watching movies, tv shows and play games. You can either waste time or do something productive instead, because we're gonna be stuck at home for a long time due to COVID-19. Being under lockdown can be boring and it is the perfect time to learn a new skill that may come in handy when all of this is over. In my case, I decided to learn a new language, Japanese to be specific. I tend to watch a lot of anime and play Japanese video games so I thought why not give the language a try. If you are also wanting to learn a new language but want to learn it at your home, we have compiled a list of apps that will help you in doing so.  1. Duolingo © Duolingo Users donât even need to make an account to get started on Duolingo and can immediately start learning a new language. It begins lessons with text, pictures and audio to help you learn a new language. You need to match a sound with pictures and text.

Why WrestleMania 17 Match Between The Rock & Stone Cold Solidified Their Legacy In WWE

WWE WrestleMania 36 is less than 10 days away now, and we have decided to relive some of the best matches and moments that took place in the history of the biggest stage in the pro-wrestling business. #WrestleMania = TOO BIG FOR JUST ONE NIGHT.

â ï¸ @FightOwensFight vs. @WWERollins

â ï¸ @WWEAleister vs. @fightbobby

â ï¸ #UniversalChampion @Goldberg vs. @WWERomanReigns

â ï¸ @IAmEliasWWE vs. King @BaronCorbinWWE pic.twitter.com/zTOYlOMrVI â WWE WrestleMania (@WrestleMania) March 24, 2020 Weâll begin the series with the match that solidified the rivalry between two of the greatest wrestlers of the âAttitude Eraâ in Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock.  Random match appreciation Tweet.

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs The Rock at WrestleMania 17 for the WWF Championship is so freakin great. I love this match so much... It's just incredible. pic.twitter.com/XKSlQn2Ar6 â Kyle (@kyle_bardin) December 16, 2018 The âNo Disqualificationâ match for the WWF Championship title, which was with The Rock at the moment, was made highly prestigious thanks to some brilliant storytelling, some nerve-wracking promos and some nail-biting in-ring performances by the two stars. According to the narrative, Vince McMahon had made Stone Coldâs then-wife Debra Marshall The Rockâs manager, whoâd get in harmâs way every now and then, because of the fact that The Rock was the champion. Stone Cold was also portrayed as this hungry fighter who wanted to take the title away from his rival by any means necessary. McMahon, himself, was an active part of the storyline and had made the lives of the two wrestlers an absolute hell. The brand took its sweet time building up to the match at WrestleMania 17. There were promos in which Stone Cold would offer The Rock a can of beer with an unusual animosity in his eyes, then there were times when The Rock was ready to strike the Texas Rattlesnake with the âRock Bottomâ but whenever the two were found to be sharing the ring, theyâd always end beating each other up. And then came judgement day. It was a brawl which felt as if the two wrestlers wanted to hurt each other truly and badly. There was blood dripping down from both their heads, they were finding it difficult to breathe because of how long it went for, but somehow, they managed to keep the audience on their toes. The commentary done by legends like Jim Ross and Paul Heyman sold the match as if Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson had somehow managed to go head to head. After they tried everything, stole each othersâ finishers and strangled each other with all the submission locks in the world, entered Vince McMahon.  When Austin asked McMahon to bring him the steel chair, that is when he changed into a heel in this storyline. Heâd go on to smash The Rock in the head with the chair a couple of times followed by a barrage of chair shots to his back before finally pinning him and winning the title. 
This not only made Austin the champion but also made The Rock look extremely powerful. It is because of moments like these that this rivalry is still considered to be the best the company would ever have to offer.  The true fans of the profession will completely appreciate how massive this match was for both their careers and also for the company that made millions from it.

Here's How Air India Has Helped Hundreds Of Stranded Indians Amidst The Coronavirus Pandemic

Mass evacuations are nothing new for Indiaâs flag carrier airline. Way back in 1990, Air India helped save over 100,000 lives by coordinating the Gulf War evacuation, a mass-scale effort that lasted 59 days and cemented the airline in record books and even the silver screen in 2016âs Airlift. Medical evacuations are quite a different ballgame, however. Earlier this February, flights 1348 and 1349 from Wuhan to Delhi marked a major achievement for Air India, as it successfully planned and executed its first ever medical evacuation across the airlineâs 73-year history. Hereâs how it went down, and how Air India plans to conduct itâs next coronavirus mission to and from Tel Aviv, Israel. The Game Plan © Reuters Caption:The aircraft used to carry the mission out were a pair of Boeing 747s, staffed by 15 cabin crew members and two sets of pilots.
Presiding over the Wuhan mission and present on both flights was Captain Amitabh Singh, Director of Operations, Air India - the very man behind wartime evacuations from Iraq, Jordan & Kuwait. Despite having barely a day to rescue 647 stranded Indians, Singh was confident in the capabilities of his 20-man team. "Fortunately,â remarked Singh, âsince Air India has always been involved in a lot of evacuations, we have a team that is always ready and we just had to pick up the phone and tell the team that this is the operation." The first challenge came as a result of the Chinese authoritiesâ airport schedule, which forced Air India to plan for an 8PM CST landing - meaning that time was of the essence for the departure crew in Delhi. âBoth the flights left Delhi at 12.50 in the afternoon,â continued Singh. âThe first time the aircraft was on the ground for six-and-a-half hours in Wuhan while on the second flight we stayed for eight hours and 15 minutes. Those who were operating the special flights were only allowed to go till the aerobridge.â What Happened In Wuhan © Reuters Caption: Staff wearing protective suits wait to check passengers boarding flights in Wuhan.
While getting to Wuhan was the easy part, Captain Singhâs main challenges would stem from the fact that the Chinese city was under total lockdown - meaning that no supplies, medical equipment or spares for the aircraft would be available to him. The solution was simple - Captain Singh manned the aircraft not just with cabin crew and a team of equipped medical professionals - the aircraft also carried engineering staff with spares, commercial staff to calculate load once the airliner was ready for takeoff, a pair of doctors and dispatchers who had to coordinate with Air Traffic Control. After landing in Wuhan, the local Indian Consulate began to coordinate with Captain Singhâs team - sending evacuees in batches to the airport as the aircraft was refuelled and system checks were conducted. Finally, a systematic three-layer check was carried out by the medical team before allowing any of the evacuees home - flights 1348 and 1349 were clearly not interested in taking any chances. In Flight Clinic © Reuters Caption: A view of the Boeing 747 carrying out an emergency stop at Mumbai airport.
Hereâs where the unique design of the Boeing 747 came into play, and why it was chosen by Captain Singh for the mission - take a look at the photograph above. Behind the smaller Boeing 777, the 747 looms at a towering 64 feet, owing to its double decker design.  While the upper floor on the aircraft was reserved for the pilots and cabin crew, the first-class section underneath the cockpit was reserved for doctors and engineers. The doctors for both flights were separately selected from Delhiâs Ram Manohar Lohia and Safdarjung Hospitals. Even after the stringent screening process, the doctors set up a makeshift clinic in the aerobridge which carried all the evacuees - giving the passengers information on their situation and instructing them on how to wear facemasks and the hygiene standards they would have to maintain in order to curb the virusâ spread. Soon after, India would repeat this feat by rescuing 263 Indians from Italy, which has the second highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world. The Tel Aviv Operation © Reuters Caption: A single orthodox Jewish man goes through Tel Avivâs deserted airport.
Following Prime Minister Modiâs lockdown announcement this Tuesday, the Indian Pilots Guild and Indian Commercial Pilots Association wrote a joint letter to the PMâs office, asserting their support and willingness to carry out operations regardless of the pandemicâs scale. "Air India as the national carrier has always been proud to fulfill a myriad of diverse and challenging missions, whenever required by the government to fulfill this obligation," it read.  The letter echoes the sentiment behind a mission thatâs currently underway at the time of writing this piece - flying 300 stranded Israelis to Tel Aviv, and returning with Indian nationals stuck in the Israeli capital. While the number of Indians weâll be seeing at Delhi airport after the flightâs return was not divulged, the aircraft chosen was a Boeing 777, which as per Air Indiaâs specifications, can fit upto 368 passengers. Air Indiaâs next evac mission is to evacuate about 20,000 Indians stranded in Saudi Arabia, which has 900 cases confirmed - officials have not shared any more details. Itâll prove to be the airlineâs biggest evacuation challenge since the Gulf War. Thankfully, we definitely have the best man for the job.

To leave a bad taste in (oneâs) mouth has been stretched a little too far in this case, quite literally! At a time when the world is dealing with a deadly virus outbreak, there are people who are licking toilet seats for fun sake. And the result? Well, a TikTok user, called GayShawnMendes aka Larz, based in California recently claimed that he is admitted in the hospital after he was tested positive for coronavirus as he was part of the 'Coronavirus challenge' that involved the licking of a toilet seat.  A kid who licked toilets as part of the #CoronaVirusChallenge says he's now in the hospital with coronavirus. @gayshawnmendes was also just suspended from twitter pic.twitter.com/lfG2NBlTrs â Pardes Seleh (@PardesSeleh) March 23, 2020This news of him being hospitalised came just a few days after he took part in that bizarre challenge putting his life and his loved onesâ lives at risk.
