'Google Play Movies' May Offer Free Content & That Will Surely Help Us Survive The Lockdown

While coronavirus has people locked inside their homes, content streaming has reached its peak with a record number of people sitting in front of their TV and computer screens. In fact, a lot of people have come forward in support of the lockdown. Pornhub, for instance, has decided to give away its premium tier subscription for free for a year to everyone. Likewise, it looks like Google Play Movies will soon let its users watch movies for free. While there's no official confirmation on this, we do have solid evidence to back this up from the folks over at XDA Developers. © Unsplash An APK teardown of the Google Play Movies apps by XDA has revealed a string of code that says, "hundreds of movies, just a few ads.â It's very obvious what Google is trying to do here.
Just like on YouTube how we get to watch almost all the videos for free by agreeing to watch the ads, Google Play Movies will also serve us free movies with ads in between. This ad-based model will let Google attract some eye-balls to the service and also allow the people to have something to watch during this lockdown period. As of now, it's not entirely clear as to how many ads will be served during these movies or at what intervals. But we're glad that Google has plans to explore this option. Not only will this allow a lot of users to check out Google Play Movies, but it'll also allow people to have some source of entertainment where they won't have to spend any money. We think it'll truly make Google Play Movies a viable source of content and a strong competitor in the market. We just hope the service lands soon.  Source: XDA Developers

Farah Khan Gets Trolled For Slamming Celebs For Posting Workout Videos Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

It is a well known fact that Farhan Khan doesnât shy away from speaking her mind and sharing her opinions on social media. Farah took to Twitter to share a video where she has slammed all the Bollywood celebs who have been posting workout videos on social media. As all the gyms are shut during the lockdown, celebs like Katrina Kaif and Jacqueline Fernandez have been sharing their workout regimes with their fans on their social media platforms. But, this hasnât gone down too well with Farah. Hereâs the video: The bigger epidemic.. work out videos!! donât make me feel worse pls! pic.twitter.com/NYs4tFwm3a â Farah Khan (@TheFarahKhan) March 26, 2020âIt's my humble request to all the 'celebrities' and 'stars' that please stop making your workout videos and bombarding us with it. I can understand that you all are privileged and you donât have any other worries in this global pandemic except for looking after your figures. But some of us, most of us have bigger concerns during this crisis," Farah said in her video.
She also threatened to unfollow the celebs who continue to share their workout videos. âSo please have mercy on us and stop uploading your workout videos and if you canât stop, then please donât feel bad if I unfollow you. Stay safe," she added. Well, it seems like it has completely backfired on Farah as people are now trolling her for her opinions on Twitter. People told her that thereâs nothing wrong if celebs are motivating their fans for keeping their health in check through exercises during this lockdown. There's nothing wrong in giving motivation to those netizen. Rather than they keep eating and watching tv, it's fine if they do the exercise and also house work. â Mira (@itskaytobeyou) March 26, 2020There's nothing wrong with motivating and entertaining people in such a situation, don't just crib for no reason. You can choose to not watch these videos. â Niraj purohit (@Nirajpurohit23) March 26, 2020Agar aap Nahi Karna chate hoo to maat Karo! Kyu dusre ko maat Karne ko bol rehe ho! â MONISHA ï¸ (@MojumdarMonisha) March 26, 2020As she said she can't post workout videos but needed attention since everyone is posting video so even she had to ! â Astha Agarwal (@astha_astha1396) March 26, 2020What's wrong in motivating people to work out ?! instead its the most productive thing that can be done at home,Good diet and exercise +Maintaining hygiene is the bets we can do sitting at home..This tweet makes no sense ! â Ãerlin//Andrés de Fonollosa (@SourabhAhuja18) March 26, 2020Oh pipe down!! These work out videos are there to motivate people to stay healthy, sitting at home all day isnât good for you!! â Gurpreet Dilvarh (@gdilvarh) March 26, 2020Do you agree with  what Farah has to say or do you think the tweet actually made no sense?

7 Print & Television Fashion Ads That Were A Little Too Raunchy For The Indian Audience

Some of the advertisements that we have seen on television and in print are genuinely thought-provoking. Some of them are just blah, and really donât compel any action.   With that being said, there are a few instances where advertisers went a little too far and had our imaginations running wild.  © Unilever From the ones selling deodorants to the ones selling condoms, there have been a number of advertisements that were a little too hot to handle, especially for the time when they were launched.  Obviously, most of them were pulled down almost immediately, because of the number of police cases and social uproar that they caused. Still, they remained in the zeitgeist through the ages.  © Leviâs Here are some of the advertisements we have seen on television and print, that pushed the envelope a little too far when they were trying to sell us some basic fashion & grooming products. Apparently, the copywriters followed the proverb, âSex Sells,â a little too religiously: 1. Amul Macho Back in the day, Amul Macho had a number of campaigns with the catchphrase, âYe To Bada Toing Haiâ.  In one of the raunchier ones, a newly-wedded bride takes some clothes to a riverbank where the women of the community meet, bathe and wash their clothes.  What follows is a sequence of the bride orgasming and performing some gratifying innuendo like actions while washing the boxer, while the onlooking women look in disbelief. For the early 2000s, this was obviously a little too hot to handle. 2. Axe Deodorants Okay, this one just had to make the list. This notion that sex sells is perhaps best embodied by most of Axeâs advertising campaigns.  For the longest time, no matter what the variant of their deodorant was, all of their campaigns had one basic message - using our deodorant will make women lose their sense of inhibition and chase you like wild animals.  Hoards of scantily clad women, in bikinis or tattered clothes, would chase a guy all throughout a place, a city, a jungle or whatever you will, eager to âdevourâ him.  3. Set Wet Zatak This was another deodorant advertisement that was a little too hot for national television.   In this one, a newly-married woman is shown to be waiting for her husband on their wedding night, when she sees her neighbour using a deodorant. The bride starts taking off her ornaments and jewellery in a very suggestive and sultry manner and ultimately takes the wedding ring off, further suggesting some rather raunchy things.  Obviously, this advertisement was not taken well and was pulled, after a huge public backlash. 4. Fastrack Fastrack has been pretty forward with their branding, where the focus is essentially on the younger generation.  Back in the day, they featured a TVC where Virat Kohli, as a pilot, is being hit on a stewardess portrayed by Genelia DâSouza. The two get a little busy in the cockpit, after a rather raunchy back and forth. This, the ad says was the reason why autopilot was invented. Well, whatever the intent was, the TVC did not sit well with the masses, and certainly not well, with anyone who was a pilot, or a stewardess. 5.  Wild Stone Deodorants Yet another deodorant TVC that pushed the envelope too far, Wild Stone had run this campaign, albeit for a brief period of time.  Here, our âhunkâ steps out after applying the deodorant and bumps into a married Bengali woman. What follows is the woman, imagining the two of them âpassionately huggingâ each other, and making love. Although the sequence was shot rather artistically, and without getting vulgar, it still was considered a little too steamy for the regular television watching audience. 6. Calida © Calida We simply cannot mention Calida, and their print ad from 1998. Calida is a Swiss inner garment manufacturer who tried to establish themselves in India.  In the ad, we see Bipasha Basu, and Dino Morea getting a little amorous. Considering that this was before the turn of the millennium, and India still a rather conservative society back then, the advertisement did not sit well. 7.  Tuff Shoes © BCCL Finally, we have the poster boy of controversial Indian advertisements, the one from Tuff shoes, printed back in 1995. The print ad featured supermodel Madhu Sapre & Milind Soman and was shot by the ace Indian photographer, Prabuddha Dasgupta.  In the advertisement, the two models are wearing nothing but the sneakers, and have wrapped a snake around them. Apart from the hullabaloo from the self-appointed protectors of Indian culture, there was also a long drawn court case over the use of the python. We can only imagine the horror that would terrorise people when they were sitting with their families and these popped up on the television. Yikes!

OnePlus 8, 8 Pro Specs Have Leaked & Here's What To Expect From Them

The ongoing coronavirus outbreak outbreak may have stalled things worldwide, it's safe to say that 2020 has seen kickass smartphones. We've already seen a ton of new phones that have come out so far this year, and the new OnePlus phones are next in line. While we don't exactly know when these new OnePlus phones will come out amidst all the chaos, we do have the specification details of the phones. Thanks to a tipster, we now have the complete specs of both the OnePlus 8 as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here's everything that you need to know - OnePlus 8 Pro The OnePlus 8 Pro is said to feature a 6.78-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It'll be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC and will have up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. As for the optics, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to sport a quad-camera setup with two 48MP sensors, along with an 8MP and a 5MP sensor. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal In terms of the battery, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to pack a 4,510mAh unit with support for up to 30W Warp Charging. This time around, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also said to have wireless charging and an IP rating. OnePlus 8 The OnePlus 8 will also be powered by the same processor and is expected to come with the same amount of RAM and storage. As for the display, the OnePlus 8 will obviously be a little smaller and hence it'll sport a 6.55-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal As for the cameras, the OnePlus 8 is said to sport a triple-camera setup which will include a 48MP sensor, a 16MP sensor, and a 2MP sensor. It'll have a 4,300mAh battery with support for 30W Warp charging, but there's no mention of wireless charging.
It looks like the OnePlus 8 will also miss out on the IP rating. All this is making the OnePlus 8 Pro look like a way better phone with major upgrades. Also, Oppo's Find series phones usually give us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming OnePlus phones. So looking at the new Oppo Find X2, we think the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 will indeed be something to look forward to.  Exclusive: They're coming! Here is the full specification list of the #OnePlus8 & 8 Pro. Seems like #OnePlus8Pro is gonna be a beast with 6.78" 120hz QHD+ Display and 48+48+8+5MP Camera Setup. Will have 30W Wireless Charging & IP68 Rating too. I'm so excited! #OnePlus8Series pic.twitter.com/j1AAo19q4J â Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) March 25, 2020 As mentioned before, we don't know when these phones will hit the market. There's a global pandemic going on right now, so it's safe to say that these phones won't be arriving anytime soon. Note: The header & social images are for representation only. That's not the final design of the upcoming OnePlus phones.

Football Stars Show Gym Enthusiasts How To Maintain Fitness Levels Without Much Equipment At Home

Last December, 2020 was being looked upon as the year of sports as fans marked their calendars for major sporting events. 
But, in a matter of just a few months, the year 2020, that once held the promise of exciting sporting action, continues to leave sports fans frustrated and disappointed - all thanks to novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) threatening the very existence of mankind.  With travel restrictions, quarantine camps and curfews all around, the fast-spreading virus continues to heckle normalcy and traumatise people across the globe. The sporting world isn't alienated to the repercussions of the scary epidemic either. The sporting events have either been cancelled or suspended owing to the fast-spreading virus.  The month of March, especially in the football world, sets the tone for a thrilling season finale. Marking the beginning of a pulsating end to the season, this time of the year generally has all club football competitions reaching a befitting end with immense pressure on the participating sides to finish on a high. But, none of that is happening right now.  When you hear that there's no EURO 2020 or Copa America this summer ?? pic.twitter.com/at5GKexDS7 â Goal (@goal) March 17, 2020 Football leagues including Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga amongst others have also been suspended as the countries continue to battle COVID-19. And, to rub salt to the wounds, the much-awaited Euro 2020 and this year's Copa America have also been pushed back by a year.  The lack of footballing action has not left just the fans, but also the players scratching their heads, wondering what to do with all the idle time at hand.  Forced to stay indoors due to contagion, while some have been busy taking up social media challenges, others are finding ways to keep their fitness levels in check and giving all gym enthusiasts a key lesson on how to remain fit at home.  Time For A Creative Leg-Day  Creative legday with the kids pic.twitter.com/GkrzNYz4Mw â Kevin De Bruyne (@DeBruyneKev) March 25, 2020

Lockdown: Over 15,000 Ltr Milk & 10000 Kg Vegetables Wasted As Delivery Agents Assaulted By Police

Amid the ongoing chaos across the globe due to the increase in the number of positive cases of novel coronavirus, people across the globe are left with so many questions and doubts in their minds. On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, announced a nationwide lockdown for 21 days until April 15 in a bid to control the spread of the deadly virus. So between the jigs and reels, many people including the law enforcement officials were unsure of how to tackle the current scenario leading to severe inconvenience in times of an unprecedented crisis.  Recently, e-commerce companies delivering essentials like groceries, medicines and food alleged that they are facing harassment by the police officials and security guards. As per the news reports, the online retailers have called for an urgent intervention from the government on the same.  Besides, a huge amount of fres produce had to be dumped because of the disruptions, they said. Speaking on the same, K Ganesh, promoter of online platforms like BigBasket, FreshMenu and Portea Medical, said in an interview with NDTV that over the last few days, policemen have abused, assaulted and in one case even arrested a delivery agent leading to huge disruption in their activities. "Even though the government has taken the right step and has been categorical in exempting essential services and have specified essential services like online delivery of goods, groceries, food, medicines and medical equipment, that message has not gone to the people down the line," Ganesh said. He added, "The cop there does not know that it's an essential service, he has no mechanism to allow and disallow somebody. In many cases, they are being harsh, they are beating uppeople. In Kerala, one of our health workers going to service a patient was arrested.” He further said, "People are risking their lives, please don't beat them up. Challan them. If people run away because their colleagues are beaten up, we cannot do anything. Don't beat up people trying to deliver goods and services.” Echoing similar sentiments,popular online grocery retailer Grofers and meat delivery platform FreshToHome, also said they were facing obstructions from local authorities in delivering as they were conforming to the coronavirus lockdown indiscriminately. Founder of Grofers, Saurabh Kumar tweeted that they are facing trouble in getting essentials delivered to people who need them as their warehouses were being asked to shut by the authorities. He wrote, “We @grofers are having a lot of trouble getting essentials to people who need them as our warehouses are asked to shut, and trucks and delivery partners are being stopped by the police. We apologise to our customers and are working hard to find a solution.” (sic) We @grofersare having a lot of trouble getting essentials to people who need them as our warehouses are asked to shut, and trucks and delivery partners are being stopped by the police. We apologise to our customers and are working hard to find a solution. — Saurabh Kumar (@theknownface) March 22, 2020 .@groferswarehouses cater to 5000 to 10000 orders daily so for every facility that gets shut we risk that many households venturing out for grocery buying. Hoping sense prevails here. We apologise to our customers again. We are trying our best to get all our facilities up. — Saurabh Kumar (@theknownface) March 23, 2020 He also wrote, “Despite assurances that grocery is an essential service and @grofers shouldcontinue to operate, police and local authorities continue to shut warehouses. All the proactive initiatives of govt and central authorities is going to waste because of overzealous enforcement agencies.” (sic) Despite assurances that grocery is an essential service and @grofersshould continue to operate, police and local authorities continue to shut warehouses. All the proactive initiatives of govt and central authorities is going to waste because of overzealous enforcement agencies. — Saurabh Kumar (@theknownface) March 23, 2020 Adding to that, another e-tailer Freshtohome said, “Home Delivery Associates are doing the job of Rashtra Rakshaks, serving a noble cause of delivering food and grocery, but across the country, we are facing hurdles in delivering orders, request you to declare home delivery as an essential service.@PMOIndia.” (sic) Home Delivery Associates are doing the job of Rashtra Rakshaks, serving a noble cause of delivering food and grocery, but across the country, we are facing hurdles in delivering orders, request you to declare home delivery as an essential service.@PMOIndia —Freshtohome - 100% Fresh 0% Chemicals (@myfreshtohome) March 23, 2020 The disruptions have led to severe wastage. In a message to customers, grocery and milk delivery website MilkBasket said it was forced to dump 15,000 litres of milk and 10,000 kg of vegetables. Sadly, it said it will not be able to deliver fresh milk in Gurgaon, Noida and Hyderabad even on Day 2 of the lockdown. @PMOIndia@cmohry@narendramodi@BJP4Haryana#milkbasketwhy milkbasket delivery guys are being harassed? Ain't milk and groceries considered as essentials? During the lockdown time, when there is so much of shortage of all the essentials, they had to dump 1000s of litres of milk pic.twitter.com/AnkC3XGMQN — Swati Walia (@Swati_w) March 24, 2020 Besides, the news report further suggested that takeaway restaurants are also facing a similar crackdown. Arjun Jaiswal, founder of Baking Bad, a pizza delivery chain in Delhi NCR, alleged that staff on two-wheelers were caned by the Delhi Police. Jaiswal told NDTV, "In the East of Kailash area in south Delhi, delivery boy riding bikes are being lathi-charged. In Noida, their phones were taken away while they tried to show proof. There is complete chaos." However, in the wake of the increasing reports of such incidents, the Modi government recently said it was taking necessary steps to ensure smooth delivery of the essentials. Also, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, "We will issue e-passes to vegetable-sellers, grocers among others to ensure essential supplies during the lockdown." Furthermore, Gurgaon and Noida Police also tweeted that they had asked policemen to allow delivery services without causing any hindrance. All officers of Noida Police have been directed that following online delivery services @Grofers@milkbasket@bigbasket@Zomato@HarvestGold@easyday& @Spencershall be allowed to operate their services.#IndiaFightsCorona@Uppolice@CP_Noidapic.twitter.com/YQOMbtetcv —POLICE COMMISSIONERATE NOIDA (@noidapolice) March 25, 2020 #HaryanaPolicehas directed all CPs & District SPs to allow movement of essential goods & services including delivery boys of various eCommerce portals like Amazon, BigBasket, Zomato, Swiggy etc & those engaged in homecare treatment of patients@nsvirk@cmohry#CoronaStopKaroNa —Haryana Police (@police_haryana) March 25, 2020 PM Modi, in his televised speech earlier, requested people to refrain from panic-buying and ensured that there will be no shortage of the essentials.

A Practising Lawyer Points Out 7 Problems That Resulted In Delayed Justice In The Nirbhaya Case

The hanging of four Nirbhaya convicts on March 20 was widely celebrated across the country as they finally got what they deserved after years of legal battle that Jyoti Singhâs parents were brave enough to put up with. However, even with the capital punishment finally coming to pass, many people still believe that the true justice wasnât served. Given the seven-year delay in carrying out the death penalties, the mental harassment Jyotiâs family was put through over the years and with a main convict getting off scot-free because he was tried as a juvenile even when he didnât deserve it, dissatisfaction with the functioning of our legal system ran high amongst the masses. © Twitter Unfortunately, such is the level of disappointment that people have come to question the Indian legal system. Owing to its many loopholes and liberal extensions, it failed to live up to the expectations of the Indian society which saw convicts manipulating the law to serve themselves and evade punishment for years.
Keeping in mind these grave injustices and the shared frustrations amongst people, we reached out to Mumbai-based lawyer Arka Navle to get a few answers and understand why things went the way that they did. Problem 1: The âPerfectly Flawedâ Indian Legal System © Twitter DDNews Advocate Navle said, âIndiaâs litigation system rocks on paper, but it is nowhere close to being practical in reality. In this country, be it a rape case or any other, everyone involved must get a chance to fair trial. Both sides have to be heard. Thatâs the law. Even when things are out in the open, the crime and the criminal are known, the Indian legal system will still give a chance to both the parties to present their case before the court.â
So basically, in our country even an accused cannot be denied his right to life and personal liberty, because Article 21 of the Indian Constitution makes fair trial a part of life and personal liberty for all Indian citizens. Problem 2: India Loves Its âProcessesâ © Wikipedia Whether to serve the powerful and give them a chance to evade the justice system, or help lawyers earn their bread and butter, the Indian legal system has set procedures in place which cannot be jumped âfor anyoneâ, or so it says on paper.
âThere are due legal processes which have to be followed before a judgement can be passed by the court of law. Though you may fast-track certain special cases as and when those appear but thatâs it, others will have to follow the procedures given in the books of law,â the advocate said. Problem 3: The Nirbhaya Case Was No Special © Twitter Talking about the delay in carrying out the indictment of the Nirbhaya accused, advocate Navle said, âThe Nirbhaya case took seven years because they were following these very procedures. The case went from the Trial Court to the High Court and then to the Supreme Court - you have to follow the steps. Apart from that, even the accused had their own set of rights, and as we know all four of them did utilise them. Once those were exhausted, the final hanging verdict was given. Now the system is such that it allows people to exploit such loopholes and provisions given to accused, which we witnessed even in this case.â
Problem 4: Inherent Public Lethargy Rooted In Litigation Proceedings © Lawandotherthings(dot)com Advocate Navle also believes that lethargy in the public and within the system also adds to the extensive time taken in clearing cases. âThe legal systemâs approach as well as the mindset of people makes them hate the following-up process, which ends in cases getting extended for years.â  She gave the example of the entire litigation of Sexual Harassment Of Women At Workplace, the judgement for which was passed in the 90s but went on to become an Act years later only in 2013.
Problem 5: Lack Of Top Manpower, Lack Of Judges © Masterfile(dot)com Advocate Navle said that lack of judges in courts is perhaps the biggest factor thatâs adding to the constant delays. âThere are too many cases in court and not enough judges to hear and clear them. At times, hearing takes months because there is a heavy board. Now the trial processes are such that one litigation turns into five more litigations along the way, and eventually there are too many hearings to deal with, and with a shortage of judges the entire process ends up taking years at times,â Navle said.
In an official document presented by The Union Law Ministry in March 2018, the Ministry stated that on an average, India has only 19 judges per 10 lakh people, with scores of judgeâs seats in courts lying vacant. Problem 6: People Within The System Exploit It © Panorama Studios Advocate Navle also stated, âThe system is not completely flawed but people within the system are trying to exploit it to serve their own purpose. They knew the system, how it works and exploit it.â
However, she also added that the system cannot change on its own, but will only happen when people who are a part of it decide to change things. âNow while many of us know about the shortcomings of our legal system and want to change it, the majority of the lawyers donât want that to happen because a lengthy process ensures that money keeps trickling in for them over a longer period of time,â she added. © Benaras Media Works Besides, she said that the way the lawyers are treated in our country also adds to this woe. âIf lawyers had the benefit of getting some sort of monthly financial security, or some subsidies or relaxations to take care of their basic needs things may not have been that bad. They wouldnât want to keep things hanging if they know their sustenance wonât be under threat with a few closed cases.â
Problem 7: Bureaucratic Involvement In Matters Of The Court  © BCCL âJudiciary should be independent and is supposed to give checks and balances to the bureaucracy and the legislature but in practise it is highly influenced. If politics is taken out of the loop, things will surely get faster and quicker. Judges should be independent and unbiased, and work away from external influence.â
This interaction was certainly insightful, but if you feel thereâs more to it let us know in the comments section below.

Why A Mentally Drained Glenn Maxwell Wanted To Break His Own Arm During World Cup 2019

Glenn Maxwell is simply one of the most talented all-rounders the Australian cricket team has ever produced. The brilliance with the bat and the ball has not only made him a big name in his own country but also earned him loads of memorable moments internationally and in the cricketing leagues of other nations as well. People love him as a player, as a competitor, as a person. But when in 2019, Maxwell decided to take a break from his duties as a cricketer to work on his mental health, he inadvertently transformed himself into becoming a beacon of hope for other athletes, including Indian skipper Virat Kohli, to come out and talk about the issues which bothered them mentally. JUST IN: Glenn Maxwell to take a short break from cricket after "experiencing some difficulties with regards to his mental health"

More to follow... pic.twitter.com/fe395p6AD9 — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) October 31, 2019 However, Glenny's courageous journey wasn't easy. There were times when he would have preferred hurting himself over playing the game he loved so dearly. There were times when he was being excellent at what he's supposed to do - dominate on the field, but he felt no joy. In the Ordineroli Speaking podcast with Neroli Meadows, Maxwell opens up about what led to his decision to take that break from cricket and the days that followed. Talking about a day in the nets before Australia were to lock horns with South Africa during the ICC World Cup 2019, Maxwell said that his teammate Shaun Marsh and he were struck in the arm during practice. © Reuters "I knew he (Marsh) was in trouble when he came in, and immediately I felt bad for him. I just thought I hope he's OK, and if anything, I wish we could swap our news (suspecting Marsh's arm was broken)," he said. "We went to the hospital together and we were both sitting there, I think both hoping for opposite news. When I got hit, I was angry and a part of me was hoping (my arm) was broken. "I was like 'this is it, I just need a break'... I was thinking about things I could do on the way back to snap it. I had anger at other people and it didn't make sense, but I was angry at myself for not being able to produce at all this World Cup. © Reuters "I thought it would've been an easy escape because I felt like I was going to get dropped at some stage and I thought maybe this is the way." When in October 2019, Lasith Malinga's side made a visit Down Under for a three-match T20I series, Maxwell was at the peak of his form, well physically at least. He was swinging for the fences every delivery that came his way, who was bowling, it didn't even matter. In the first match, he smashed 62 off just 28 balls with seven fours and three sixes coming from the middle of his blade. He made it an easy sail for his side which won the match by 134 runs, he should have been the happiest man in the world but he felt nothing. #SLvsAUS 1st T20I
Glenn Maxwell scored 62 runs in 28 balls pic.twitter.com/1hPyS2oF9T — 11CricketNews (@11cricketnews) October 27, 2019 "I batted so well, I got 60-odd off less than 30 (balls) and barely missed the middle...but didn't really enjoy any of it," he said. "You're taking down an international attack and just not enjoying any bit of it." This is when the cricketer decided that he needed to take some time off. It wasn't the easiest thing letting his teammates and his captain know that he didn't want to play for some time, even though he was physically fit. A mental health break wasn't seen as the most important thing to do. © Reuters "I was about to announce it to the group, they had no idea what was going on, I didn't even tell (Aaron) Finchy. I didn't want them to be distracted by what was going on with me. "I went over to him (Finch) and said 'I'm done, I'm going to have a bit of time off', and he said he noticed something was up. Once I told him, he was like, 'brave decision, well done'. "Once everyone left, I broke down into tears, it was more...that was the first time I showed any emotion...since the World Cup," he said. © Reuters This is when Maxwell became a symbol. People from all over the world, from his greatest rivals to the legends who served the team before him, everyone came out with their respective stories of mental issues and how they caved from dealing with it. Maxwell got a ton of support from the biggest names of the game. You'd think that that would have made his life a little easier, right? Think again. "Those next two or three days were probably the worst I'd had in the next six months," Maxwell said. “As much as support was great, it was also so confronting...I wanted to go further into my little hole and not come out. I felt like I was letting a lot of people down, I felt like I was taking an easy-out, I didn't know what I was doing," he said. © Reuters Sometimes, taking an easy way out is the best way to deal with things. Take a break, move away from work, think about yourself as well. That's what Glenn Maxwell did and when he made his return during Australia's Big Bash League, he was the same batsman who harrowed the opponents with his big hits. He was named in the BBL's 'Team of the Tournament'. He is now engaged, well over his mental health struggles and looking forward to new challenges in life. That is all a person could ask for, no?

6 Times Aryan Khan Gave His Dad SRK Some Fierce Competition With His Fashion Game

We all know that star kids get as much attention as any other B-town celebrity. Even if they are not a part of the movie industry just yet, the paparazzi always ensure they are snapped and this gives us an insight into what their lives are like. Having said that, with a majority of star kids out there, Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan's son, has never failed to amaze us.  He has been in the spotlight for a while now and even though he hasn't marked his debut yet, we are constantly updated about his whereabouts through social media. What makes his feed even catchier, is the fact that most of the pictures that he posts remind us of Shah Rukh Khan. Be it his looks or his way of dressing, Aryan clearly knows how to ace all sorts of silhouettes and give fierce competition to his father with his fashion game.  Here's a compiled list of all the times when Aryan Khan aced the fashion arena with his sartorial eccentricities. View this post on Instagram Happy Mothers day #gaurikhan A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on May 12, 2019 at 12:07am PDT 1. Remember the time when we spotted all celebrities at Akash Ambani's engagement party? Well, our favourite star kid wasn't far behind in the fashion league.  This well-fitted blue suit with a black-tie, shows that he is truly King Khan's son as he knows how to elevate his style statement, no matter where he goes.  View this post on Instagram #suhanakhan #shahrukhkhan #aryankhan #gaurikhan #abramkhan #ananyapanday #saraalikhan #janvikapoor #iamsrk #naturephotography#naturalhair A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on May 24, 2019 at 9:41am PDT The saying 'like father, like son', is seen quite explicitly in this picture. This one, for example, is encapsulated quite well with a leather bomber jacket topped with denim pants and a basic T-shirt. On the other hand, SRK's way of wearing the jacket with cargo pants is relatable too.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Mar 17, 2019 at 8:19pm PDT We cannot take our eyes off that jawline. Add to that, oversized orange jacket for winter days, sums up this picture in the most pleasing manner.  While we have seen SRK wearing such silhouettes, this one from Aryan's closet, shows where he gets his inspiration from.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Jul 1, 2018 at 8:37am PDT Balenciaga sock sneakers are hands down the most versatile pair of sneakers we have seen and it looks like the trend of wearing them runs in the Khan family. A look at this picture and you would see how Aryan, AbRam and SRK are all wearing the same sock sneakers in different colours. This is beyond words for us!  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Jan 28, 2018 at 3:04am PST Aryan looks like SRK's spitting image in this one. Also, the way he is sporting the smart casual outfit is truly raising the temperature.  A white shirt with undone buttons, layered with a black blazer is an instant way to stand out.  If this is not tempting enough, we don't know what is! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Mar 24, 2020 at 7:30am PDT Aryan clearly doesn't need any more fashion lessons as he has already struck a chord with us with his choices.  This one, where he has layered a grey denim jacket over an oversized Givenchy red hoodie and camouflage pants is athleisure fashion at its best. Hats off!

Ravichandran Ashwin Uses 'Buttler Mankading' Incident To Highlight Importance Of Staying Indoors

On this day, last year, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) were busy fighting it out with Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the fourth match of the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). A whirlwind knock of 79 runs by Chris Gayle and an impressive spell of 2-31 by Mujeeb Ur Rahman powered the visiting KXIP brigade to a 14-run triumph in Jaipur. 
But, that IPL clash is neither known for Gayle's knock, nor for KXIP's crucial away win. The pulsating match is widely remembered for the 'mankading' incident that grabbed all the limelight.  Chasing a total of 184 runs, Rajasthan were looking on course in their run-chase with Jos Buttler carrying the baton for the home side. But, just when the hosts looked in control, Ravichandran Ashwin surprised everyone.  It was the 13th over when KXIP captain Ashwin was into the attack. On the fifth delivery of the over, he was getting ready to bowl to Sanju Samson when, right before moving into his delivery stride, Ashwin caught Buttler short at the crease by dislodging the bails at the non-striker's end.  Following an appeal, which led to a referral to the third umpire, a furious Buttler was ruled out.  Donât know where understanding of spirit comes from, if itâs in the rules, itâs there - Ashwin on the 'mankading' of Jos Buttler.#T20Cricket #Mankading #Rajasthan #Punjab pic.twitter.com/xOSnaJaScf â Cricbuzz (@cricbuzz) March 26, 2019 Buttler's 'mankading' at the hands of Ashwin drew all sorts of responses on social media with factions divided as some deeming it fit as per rules of the games and others opining it was against the spirit of cricket.  Well, it's been exactly a year, but the debate still goes on. While the opinions of fans and pundits remain divided, Ashwin seems to have found good use of the infamous incident.  With India under a 21-day lockdown amid novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the off-spinner used his 'Buttler mankading' incident to highlight the importance of staying indoors in times of crisis.  Taking to Twitter, Ashwin shared the infamous photo of himself where he was seen 'mankading' the England batsmen during last year's clash.  Hahaha, somebody sent me this and told me it's exactly been 1 year since this run out happened.

As the nation goes into a lockdown, this is a good reminder to my citizens.

Don't wander out. Stay inside, stay safe! #21DayLockdown pic.twitter.com/bSN1454kFt â lets stay indoors India ????

As the nation goes into a lockdown, this is a good reminder to my citizens. Don't wander out.

The Apple Watch Can Now Monitor How Your Body Responds To Symptoms Of Coronavirus And Flu

The Apple Watch is considered to be the best health fitness tracker and the smartwatch has been credited for saving lives numerous times in the past. The Apple Watch is capable of tracking your heart rate, monitor your sleep cycles and optimise workouts. The Apple Watch can also stream music and be used to communicate if you are away from your phone. Needless to say, it was also our gadget of the decade as the smartwatch has been a total game-changer in the wearables market. Now, a new update for the Apple Watch will let users know if your body is fighting off symptoms of the flu and, or coronavirus.  © Apple Insider The Cardiogram app for the Apple Watch can give you a detailed report about your heart rate with graphs and allows you to export the data as a PDF for your doctor. The new update to the Cardiogram app brings a new sleeping BPM feature that helps in monitoring your body's response to symptoms of flu and coronavirus. It is worth pointing out that the Apple Watch cannot detect the virus. The latest update instead uses the “Sleeping BPM” feature to monitor your sleeping heart rate. If you are suffering from any symptoms of the flu, it can compare the data with your resting heart rate. It may be able to point out how your heart is responding to any illnesses your body might be experiencing.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla "Cardiogram's new Sleeping BPM feature can help users become more aware of how their body is responding to symptoms of the flu or other illnesses including COVID-19," Cardiogram's co-founder Johnson Hsieh told Apple Insider.  The team cautions that the new feature is not intended to diagnose COVID-19 or the flu and should not be used as a replacement for medical diagnostic tests. "Rather, we're providing users with an additional tool to become more aware of how flu-like symptoms may be affecting their body through their heart rate patterns,” Hsieh said. Source: Apple Insider

Krunal�s Low-Key Mantra Makes Him A Legit Style Icon That One Could Take Notes From

As a number of interviews and people who ardently follow cricket will tell you, Hardik is the brash, unapologetic maverick in Indian cricket. His elder brother Krunal Pandya, on the other hand, is very poised, controlled, and strategic in his behaviour. Where Hardik often finds himself embroiled in some controversy or the other, Krunal, on the other hand, has managed to steer clear of getting into trouble. Clearly, heâs the Jay Leno of Indian Cricket (fans of The Newsroom, anyone?) - amicable, and some one who does not really bother anyone. 
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official We all know that Hardik has a rather zany and quirky sense of fashion. From wearing a really expensive watch to the hospital, one that costs over Rs. 80 lakh to wearing a set of pyjamas that cost over Rs. 1.6 lakh to a quiet family dinner, we have seen them do that all.
© Instagram/hardikpandya93 Krunal, on the other hand, has a very low key fashion mantra. You will rarely see him wear a shirt that has a luxury brandâs name sort of screaming out at you. Having said that, Krunal does not actually shy away from wearing some of the most exquisite brands out there.
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official © Instagram/krunalpandya_official Take this image for instance. Here, the accessories that Krunal has decked himself out in, ooze luxury. A rather exquisite scarf from Fendi, a stellar pair of Spiked Oralto Sneakers from Christian Loubouttin, and a Rolex Daytona - all of these pieces just show that Krunal is indeed a baller when it comes to fashion.
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official Speaking of his watches, we have seen Krunal wear some of the most expensive and exquisite brands from the world of horology. Patek Phillipe, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Rolex - we have seen a number of watches from these makers on his wrists. 
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official Our personal favourite, though, has to be the Cosmograph Daytona Rainbow Yellow Gold Oyster from Rolex. With an estimated price of Rs. 89 lakh (plus import duties and taxes), this is clearly one of the most expensive watches we have seen a cricketer wear.
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official When it comes to ethnic Indian wear, Krunal operates on a different playing field. At Amit Aggarwalâs show in the Lakme Fashion Week 2020, we saw Krunal turning up as a guest in an exquisitely made kurta. The silhouette, with its layered and seemingly woven plackets, and the rectangular piece that seems to hold the kurta together is really a masterpiece.
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official There is also this rather basic black kurta set with epaulets. Although this style of a kurta is rather common, the Audemars Piguet certainly is not. This is actually a rather posh way of dressing down, as oxymoronic as the statement seems.
© Instagram/krunalpandya_official All in all, Krunalâs style mantra is someone that will work well with most Indian guys. If you are tall and lean like Krunal, you should definitely pay heed to the way he styles and dresses and take some notes.

Fan Asks Shahid Kapoor On How To Keep One's Wife Happy During Lockdown & His Response Is On Point

Owing to the Coronavirus outbreak right now, we have all been restricted to staying in our homes as the nation is in a state of total lockdown.  Everyone is finding ways to keep themselves busy throughout this self-isolation period, and yesterday, just after PM Narendra Modi announced a 21-day lockdown, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor decided to conduct an interactive session with his fans on Twitter. Chalo let's chat. — Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) March 24, 2020 During the #AskMe session, the actor was asked some very hilarious questions and his responses were just bang on.  One particular fan asked him, “21 din lockdown mei wife ko kaise khush rakhein?” To which the Kabir Singh star replied saying, “Adarpoorvak Seva Karo. Boss boss hota hai.”  I hope men are taking note of it as, during the time of lockdown when there's no domestic help, you will have to help your wives at home, without any doubt. Adarpoorvak Seva karo. Boss boss hota hai. https://t.co/YLSAr9NjVT — Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) March 24, 2020 Another fan also asked a rather interesting question, “What would Kabir Singh do during a lockdown for 21 days?” On this, Shahid said, “Hug Preeti ( the dog ) and make do. Rules are rules bro.”  Through this response, he made two things pretty clear. One, dogs can't catch Coronavirus so you can easily spend time with them and two, rules have to be followed and no exceptions can be made, even for Kabir Singh. Hug preeti ( the dog ) and make do. Rules are rules bro. https://t.co/M7UAaKdc1N — Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) March 24, 2020 Shahid also requested his fans to stay home and stay safe, further advising them to pray, meditate and read during this lockdown time. Be at home. Stay safe. Stay mentally emotionally and physically strong. Spread love. Have faith. Pray often. Speak to all those who matter daily. Meditate. Read. Cook. See the sky turn bluer every day. 21 days. Will pass. Keep it real and make it count you all. — Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) March 24, 2020 Not just Shahid, other Bollywood celebs too are helping the government in spreading the message of social distancing through their social media platforms as that's the only key to fight Coronavirus right now. In India, there are 560 active cases of Covid-19, so far, and to prevent it from spreading it any further, this lockdown has been imposed.

This Man In China Created A Video Game-Inspired Pod To Protect His Baby From Coronavirus

Coronavirus is spreading at a rapid pace, making it almost impossible for people to step outside their houses without the fear of catching the virus. These are some tough times and all of us must take all precautionary measures to stay safe. Covid-19 seems to be more deadly for the elderly and children below the age of 10. In any case, the virus should be treated seriously and we don't recommend stepping out of the house (only in case of emergencies) without a mask. Heck, some people are even stepping out wearing a hazmat suit. But there's one man in China who decided to take things to the next level. A father in China created what's basically a "Baby Pod" seen in the popular game by Hideo Kojima, Death Stranding. It looks like he created the pod to protect the baby during the coronavirus pandemic. As you can see, the pod is basically a forward-facing backpack and there's a lot going on with it. It has a lot of protective measures so the family can interact with the baby safely. Here, check it out - When you'd do anything to keep your baby safe in China amid the coronavirus pandemic pic.twitter.com/zQ2kyoS8ob â SCMP News (@SCMPNews) March 23, 2020In an interview, he revealed that the pod is indeed inspired by Death Stranding. He says he can go out for a walk with the family while using the pod to protect the baby. The pod has two parts, the cabin, and the filtered breathing machine. There's also an air quality monitor inside that keeps showing the reading.
When asked about the pod, the father said, "Because I like scientific movies and games, the structure of the cabin is similar to the game Death Stranding, itâs the reference for my cabin." © Kojima Productions Death Stranding, for those of you who don't know, is a game that's based in a post-apocalyptic world. It features a baby pod which the protagonist, played by Norman Reedus carries, for the most part of the story. If it has caught your fancy, Death Stranding for PC launches this year.

Shikhar Dhawan Cleaning Toilet While Wife Aesha Puts On Make-Up Sums Up Life In Isolation

Amid the ongoing battle against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe, India, too, has stepped up its pace to contain the deadly virus in the country. While a total of 4,22,966 positive cases and 18,906 deaths have been recorded in over 165 nations, India too has witnessed a steep rise in the coronavirus graph with as many as 562 confirmed cases and 10 fatalities so far. Given the situation at hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked all citizens to observe 'Janta Curfew' on March 22. Also, with the COVID-19 tightening the noose on India, PM Modi, on March 24, announced a much-needed nationwide lockdown for a period of 21 days. The Indian government's move means that people are restricted to their respective residences with a lot of idle time at hand. Addressing the nation on battling the COVID-19 menace. #IndiaFightsCorona https://t.co/jKyFMOQO5a â Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 24, 2020While the move, a need of the hour, left many worried and scared, it gave an opportunity to many to make the most of it. We've seen a lot of sportspersons using all this idle time to post videos of themselves taking on 'Toilet-Paper Challenge' and 'Stay At Home Challenge' to enthral fans. But, Shikhar Dhawan seems to have taken it a notch further.
During this lockdown a lot of animals/birds who were dependent on us for their daily food are now going to go hungry. Humble request to you to put out food/water bowls outside your homes. From the safety of our homes, save some souls.#compassionintimesofcorona @pfaindia pic.twitter.com/cE5NO5jqmf â Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) March 24, 2020The Indian opening batsman, akin to other sports stars, has been pretty active on social media since the self-isolation protocols were implemented in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak. From sharing informative videos to asking people to put out food for animals and birds, Dhawan has been as consistent off the field as he has been on it.
Life after one week at home.
Reality hits hard ?? #AeshaDhawan @BoatNirvana #boAtheadStayINsane ???? pic.twitter.com/ZTM2IhGV3c â Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) March 24, 2020But, leaving all seriousness aside, Dhawan has now come up with a hilarious video where he seems to have hilariously highlighted the plight of husbands in these times of self-isolation. The video shows the Indian opener washing clothes and cleaning the toilet under the directives of his wife Aesha who is seen putting on the make-up and chatting on the phone. "Life after one week at home. Reality hits hard," Dhawan tweeted.
I hear you ?????? @SDhawan25 https://t.co/lnPParxBft â David Warner (@davidwarner31) March 24, 2020The hilarious video has garnered all sorts of responses on social media. Australian opening batsman David Warner, too, took note of Dhawan's funny Twitter video and responded, "I hear you".
On the other hand, the United Nations has expressed solidarity with India in its fight against coronavirus. The World Health Organisation (WHO) Representative to India, Henk Bekedam, praised PM Modi's 21-day nationwide lockdown as a "comprehensive and robust" response to the raging COVID-19 epidemic. Starting midnight today, the entire country will go under a complete lockdown for 21 days. This is an essential step in this decisive battle against the #coronavirus pandemic: @PMOIndia @narendramodi during his address to the nation on battling #COVID19.#IndiaFightsCorona pic.twitter.com/7zkItg3X9t â United Nations India (@UNinIndia) March 24, 2020"Massive efforts have been made towards prevention and containing the spread, including strengthening surveillance, laboratory capacity, contact tracing and isolation and risk communications. It is vital that we come together in solidarity and help in breaking the chain of transmission and flattening the curve," Bekedam said.
