  1. If you are still undecided about what's actually being said in the Yanny or Laurel video, Jay Aubrey Jones, 64, is here to clear it once and for all. The voice recording artist recorded the word 'laurel' back in 2007 and he's come clean as to what he actually said at the time. What do you hear?! Yanny or Laurel pic.twitter.com/jvHhCbMc8I — Cloe Feldman (@CloeCouture) May 15, 2018 He told Time: "I recorded my batch of words and I thought that was that. I thought, well, it couldn't be that huge. Then I heard the recording again online and I realised what a brouhaha this whole thing was." Jay recorded 'Laurel' and not 'Yanny' almost a decade back and that means this ambiguous audio bite has been on the internet for more than a decade. Jay Aubrey hails from New Jersey in US and is a trained pronunciation artist. He had produced this audio for Vocabulary.com at the time.
  2. We all are active on social media platforms like WhatsApp and Facebook, and more often than not, we come across posts and messages related to blood donation. But how many of us actually respond to it or pay any heed to it? Sadly, the number isn't something to be proud of because most of us tend to ignore these messages. However, there are a few people who go out of their way to help save someone's life. Arif Khan is one such man who chose humanity over religion and broke his Ramzan fast to save a Hindu's life. Arif came across a request for urgent blood donation on social media and WhatsApp, for 20-year-old Ajay Bijlawan. Ajay was hospitalized in Dehradun's Max Hospital and was in a serious condition, where his blood platelets were rapidly falling. Twitter Reportedly, Ajay urgently needed A+ blood and the doctors told his father that if the donor isn't found, his life will be in danger. After certain failed efforts, Ajay's father started asking for help from his family and friends. After Arif came across the heartfelt post on WhatsApp, he immediately contacted the family members and became Ajay's silver lining in the dark clouds. When Arif Khan who the President of National Association for Parents and Students Rights (NAPSR), reached the hospital, he was asked to first eat something and then donate blood. This meant that he will have to break his Ramzan fast before the Iftar time. In order to save Ajay's life, Arif agreed to break his fast and made the blood donation. Twitter “If somebody's life could be saved by breaking my roza (fast), then I will put humanity first, rozas (fasts) can be kept later, and human life is precious.” These were the words of Arif Khan, after he donated his blood and helped save Ajay's life. He further said, “Helping the needy is essential teachings of Ramzan, I believe if we keep fast and do not help the needy then Allah won't be happy, it is my honour that I could help someone.” Twitter In an age, when people are lynched or attacked in the name of religion, people like Arif prove that one's religion can never be greater or bigger than a person's life. Doing what Arif did takes a lot of courage and we are proud of him. Arif deserves all the respect in the world.
  3. Despite the fact that depression is quite common and recognisable in someone, it can sometimes masquerade as something else and leave one's behaviour questionable. The signs could be very subtle and if you know the person well enough, only then you'd be able to figure out the change, in their behaviour pattern. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Sometimes even though you're close to someone, it's difficult to figure out what the actual signs of depression are, unless you pay really close attention. And if you do figure they're depressed, don't waste a minute in getting them the right kind of help. Here are some 5 subtle, yet vital signs to watch out for, if your partner or anyone else is in depression. They Will Seek Solitude Depression usually brings about solitude and people who are going through depression, would usually want to be left alone. They will stop going out and will limit their social interactions to minimal. This is because along with everything else, one loses the will to be around people and be themselves. While depression acts like another entity altogether, taking over their beings, it doesn't allow one to be very social and people in depression slowly start to isolate themselves. © Thinkstock/Getty Images They Will Face A Lot Of Fatigue Depression is quite exhausting and it takes a great amount of energy to complete daily tasks. That's why most people facing depression will seldom get out of bed to complete daily tasks in hand. This is because depression is a difficult phenomena to cope with and once it has you in its grip, it makes every task seem like climbing a very steep hill. So if you see someone you're close to, who is always fatigued and tired, you'd know this is one of the prominent signs. © Thinkstock/Getty Images They Will Lack Motivation They will not be as motivated as they were, when they were in good health. If you see signs of tardiness in your partner, you will know that their will to do anything that motivates them, is lacking. A lot of people who are depressed also have trouble waking up in the morning as they feel bogged down with the depression and almost feel dysfunctional. You will see her lose her will to do many things that motivated her in the past. © Thinkstock/Getty Images They Will Not Be Sexually Active A dry spell might not be a part of the normal dynamic of the relationship, so when your partner starts to withdraw, it's not because she has lost interest in sex. It's because depression takes away any feeling towards being turned on or even being sexually attracted to your partner. The brain is the sex organ and if the brain is shutting functionality down, it will obviously hamper one's sex drive too. The neurotransmitters that communicate any sort of desire to the brain, are ineffective while the person is in depression, making them go through a dry spell. © Thinkstock/Getty Images They Will Not Care Much About Their Appearance They will slowly stop taking care of themselves and following a healthy routine. They will either put on a lot of weight or lose weight due to overeating or not eating at all. If she stops dressing up, wearing makeup and taking care of herself in general, that's one vital sign to look out for. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Depression can come in any shape and size and stay for as long as the victim will allow it to. The person going through depression may never know the signs or probably not recognise them, but if you know them close enough, you will see these changes well pronounced. So, if your partner or anyone else you know closely is going through these 5 vital signs, you know it's time to get them the appropriate help they need.
  4. 'Avengers: Infinity War' is the highest earning Marvel movie till date and 'Avengers 4' is most probably going to break this record when it releases on 3rd May 2019. But, for people who can't wait for almost a year to find out how all (or should I say remaining) of their favourite superheroes come together and defeat Thanos, 'Deadpool 2' offers some respite. It goes without saying that there are going to be spoilers for both the movies below. So if you haven't watched either, head to the cinema then come back and read on. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Now, let me ask you a question. What's the plot of 'Deadpool 2?' Deadpool avenging his dead girlfriend? That's a subplot at best. The plot of the movie revolves around Cable traveling back in time, to the present day, so he can kill Russell Collins before he turns evil. Pretty straightforward. Just how a comic book movie should be. But, without knowing it, the movie may just have ended up giving the biggest spoiler for 'Avengers 4' yet. What is it? Read on to find out. © 20th Century Fox Remember the scene when Cable is standing over the burnt bodies of his wife and child? He picks up his daughter's teddy bear then turns his time-travel watch a few times before vanishing into thin air. Next thing we know, he's in a field somewhere in the present day. © Twitter The next time we see Cable use the watch is at the end of the movie when, instead of going forward in time so he can be with his family, he goes back once more to save Deadpool. Quite the sacrifice wouldn't you say? © Twitter If you haven't guessed as yet, the focus here is on the time traveling watch that Cable (and later Deadpool) was wearing. It is an integral part of 'Deadpool 2.' But, little did we know that it was going to be an integral part of 'Avengers 4.' Don't believe me? Just take a look at this picture from the sets of 'Avengers 4.' © Twitter There are two things worth noticing here. First, Captain America is wearing what looks like his suit from the first Avengers movie. Second, notice what's on his left hand. It looks like a timepiece. Hell, it looks awfully similar to… mind blown! © Twitter He's not the only Avenger who's wearing this time traveling device. Iron Man and Ant-Man have been spotted wearing the same timepiece too. © Twitter Now, compare these timepieces with the one Cable was using in 'Deadpool 2.' © Twitter Putting two and two together, we are pretty sure that the remaining Avengers are going to go back in time in 'Avengers 4' in order to save the day. This is the theory with the most meat, and as much as we would like to believe the Russo brothers are fooling us by letting out such an obvious spoiler, the chances of it being nothing more than a lead on, are slim. Hold your horses. We're not done yet. Before you head to the comments to vent your frustration on how much I "don't know about the Marvel Cinematic Universe" and what a "shitty writer" I am, let me tell you that this is my opinion and you have every right to disagree. For those of you who believe this theory to be true, here are a couple of ways things could go in 'Avengers 4' based on what we know and the photos that have been released from the sets. © Twitter Theory 1 This is the more obvious one, given what we've just read. The superheroes, who survived Thanos' dreaded finger snap, go back in time using the time traveling watches to defeat Thanos before he becomes all powerful. The only problem with this theory is that, if it turns out to be true, it takes out the very essence of 'Avengers: Infinity War.' That movie would end up being nothing but a filler. It would be the longest con ever pulled by a production house on the audience. Before you start complaining about how I'm stupid to say this, because every movie has consequences and if everyone is saved in 'Avengers 4', it doesn't mean 'Avengers 3' was pointless, hear me out. I am not saying that 'Avengers: Infinity War' would be a waste of time if 'Avengers 4' fixed everything. What I mean to say is, if 'Avengers 4' undoes everything that happened in 'Avengers: Infinity War' it will be like a master reset on everything we've seen since 'Avengers', and that wouldn't be fair to the movie-going audience. You only reset a timeline when everyone complains about the original movies (ala X-Men). But, when everyone loves every single movie you've made, you can't take yourself out of a jam by resetting the entire timeline. This is not the kind of ending that would give us satisfaction. So no, I'm not saying it's not been done in the past, I'm saying I expect more from Marvel. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Theory 2 This brings us to theory number two. Here, all the scenes we're seeing from the Battle of New York are nothing more than BARF (Binarily Augmented Retro-Framing) enabled recreations that the remaining Avengers are using, to figure out where they went wrong and how they can defeat Thanos. If you don't remember what BARF is, we recommend watching 'Captain America: Civil War' again. The movie may not have time travel in it, but it will feature a time jump. It will take us years into the future, so that we can see the effect of Thanos' finger snap over time. Was it actually as good for the universe as he claimed it would be? Did the remaining people actually benefit from this move? It's quite a serious direction to take a comic book movie in, but hey, most of the MCU audience are adults by now, right? We can handle it. Also, with the remaining superheroes not racing against the clock to defeat Thanos, it might open up the possibility of some character development. There's always room for that isn't there? On a closing note, if rumours are to be believed and 'Avengers 4' really is the last time we're going to see Chris Evans or Robert Downey Jr., we'd like for them to have as much screen time as possible. Don't agree? Follow the author on Instagram or chat with him on Twitter about what you think is going to happen in 'Avengers 4.'
  5. Bollywood and the term 'larger than life' go hand in hand. While most movies and their characters are often a reflection of our dreams and imaginations, sometimes what intrigues us the most, is probably not the storyline, but the grand theme of a movie in its entirety. The cinematography and the luxurious set where a movie is shot, definitely make a huge difference. Here's a list of the most expensive movie sets in Bollywood of recent times: 1. 'Saawariya'- This list will contain Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movies because obviously, no one has an eye for detail like this man. While 'Saawariya' turned out to be a cold cut at the box office and was even a debut for Sonam and Ranbir Kapoor, the lavish sets of dark blues and blacks is what the audience remembers. The movie's set has a grand clock tower, a full-fledged city with snow and even lakes! Only he can do this. 2. 'Ram Leela'- Another Bhansali entry in the list. The grandeur of the set had a key role in the whole development of the plot. He brought the flavour of Gujarat alive, without even shooting in the state, that is the brilliance of his brain. The insanely big courtyard of their 'havelis', the colourful lanes, and the opulent background of every song. This movie had it all. 3. 'Bajirao Mastani'- Another beautiful movie from Bhansali. A special mention has to go to the scene where Priyanka Chopra's room and the main darbar is revealed with the innumerable mirrors. It was called the 'Aena Mahal' which was inspired by the set of 'Mughal-E-Azam'. Over 20,000 mirrors were used and it took around 45 days to build it. 4. 'Padmaavat'- Okay, we cannot help but add this one as well to the list. The movie, which swam in an ocean of controversies, finally saw the light of the day amidst major boiling issues. While the actors were obviously praised for their acting skills, let's give a moment to simply endure the grandeur of the movie set. Not to forget, that the set which cost over 35 crores, was even vandalised. 5. 'Mughal-E-Azam'- This movie set a benchmark back in 1960 which is too high for movies even today. An insanely brilliant star cast, wonderful script and a never-before-seen movie set. 'Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya' was shot in a replica of the 'Sheesh Mahal' and Belgian glass was specially imported for the same. 6. 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'- The movie was surely a commercial success, but you can always trust Rajshri Productions to perfect the art of making a movie set. The movie crossed a budget of over Rs. 90 crores and the set, apparently, cost over 15 crores alone. 7. 'Jodha Akbar'- This period drama easily had one of the finest cinematography in Bollywood. The luxe sets were built in Karjat and are now opened for tourists now. 8. 'Bombay Velvet' – Sure, this was a box office dud, but it was also Anurag Kashyap's most expensive project. Apparently, the set was made across a 9.5 acre land in Colombo and took close to a year to build a Bombay which looked straight out of 1960's. 9. Baahubali- This magnum opus has broken records all across the globe and enjoys a stellar fan following. The insane set at Ramoji city is flocked by tourists all year long with an entry ticket for around 1250 bucks. Worth it I guess! One can feel poor just by looking at them!
  6. I remember when my friend coaxed me to watch the new Marvel movie, 'Deadpool' a few years ago. To be honest, I wasn't really a big fan back then but after watching 'Deadpool', I can safely say that it was the single most exhilarating experience of my life! Marvel outdid itself with the quirks that Ryan Reynolds pulled off so effortlessly. His distinctive sense of humour and the repeated breaking of the fourth wall were something that had all Deadpool fans asking for more! And when I saw Fastrack come out with their quirky Deadpool watch collection, as a fan I was over the moon.

  7. An arranged marriage is not an alien concept in our culture. Indian men and women alike are prepped for this concept since childhood and if you don't find a partner to suit yourself, rest assured your parents will find one for you, regardless. But most people abiding by this culture settle in for an arranged marriage without thinking twice. It could be because they haven't found anyone so they leave the hunt for a partner to their parents, or because their parents are fastidious about finding their children a match on their own. Whatever is it, the concept of an arranged marriage is very transparent in India and seemingly, spending your entire life with a stranger is not a strange phenomenon to many! © Twitter But before you embark on your journey with a complete stranger, there are a few things you have to keep in mind. It's true, you never really know someone unless you've lived with them for a considerable amount of time but if you are planning to marry a complete stranger, there are a few things you can keep in mind, before jumping into an arranged marriage. It just makes the process of living with someone you barely know easier. Here are the 5 most pertinent things to keep in mind, while considering an arranged marriage. Set A Timeline Setting a timeline is quiet important, unless of course you're in a rush to get married! Setting a timeline means selecting a partner though a matrimonial site or through an arrangement by your parents and giving the other person considerable amount of time before marriage, so you can get to know each other better. It's only fair if you have no idea about the person! You can spend a lot of quality time together, finding out your likes, dislikes, habits and other important things. If possible, try and live together for a bit. It will definitely tell you a lot about the other person. © Twitter Spend Time With Her Family They say if you marry someone in India, you marry their family too. So, it's quite important to spend adequate amount of time with the family too. If you think you can adjust around them and they treat you well, and you get along fine, it's definitely a green flag. Remember, you will have to deal with her family for the rest of your life too, so make sure you know them as well as you know her. © Facebook Financial Compatibility This is an important aspect in today's day and age and it would have been important enough even if it wasn't an arranged marriage. By financial compatibility, I mean the financial stability should be flexible and compatible between the two of you. It does not mean you should be earning more than her or she should be earning any less. It just means there should be equality in finances and it's a little important that both of you are financially secure and independent. Of course you will be splitting costs after marriage but it's good to figure out what your partner's financial compatibility is, before you get around to doing that. © Pinterest Lay All Your Cards On The Table If you're in a relationship with someone before you get married you already know their expectations and what they want from you and what they don't. In an arranged marriage you're as clueless as she is. So it's good to lay all your cards on the table and talk about what you two expect from each other. If she wants to change anything or if you expect anything out of her, it should be discussed before you get married because it helps to map the needs and wants from your partner, for a fuller, successful marriage. For instance if you're planning on going out of the country for work, sometime in the future, she should know about it before hand. Discussing kids, future goals and career options is also a must. © Twitter Be Open About Your Past Since it's an arranged marriage, your partner will not know anything about your past and it's good to be open about it, in case there is something relevant your partner needs to know. You can of course start with a clean slate too, wherein you tell each other the past doesn't matter and you lay it all out on the table. But knowing about each other's past also gives you a peak into the other person's life and you can get to know them a lot better through this exercise. As long as you both aren't masking to be someone else, it's a great way to build any sort of relationship. © YouTube These are the 5 essentials you need to have in mind before delving into an arranged marriage. It's exciting and wonderful to get to know someone entirely new but it also becomes easier if you do your due diligence and keep these 5 things in mind, before committing to anything.
  8. The entire world is still mourning the loss of Avicii, who passed away on 20th April, just a month ago. He was just 28 and his untimely death was a shock that we're all still dealing with. And, today I would like to talk about the last tweet posted by the late musician. Thanks for the nomination! ð @billboard #BBMAS pic.twitter.com/uTjKQALeX2 — Tim Bergling (@Avicii) April 17, 2018 He seemed so excited for the nomination and it's just sad to look back at it. As all of us know, the Billboard Music Awards were held last night and as much as Avicii would have loved to be a part of it, it's nice to see his contribution to the music industry, especially when it comes to EDM was not only acknowledged, but also honoured. © Twitter Before introducing the nominees for the Top Hot 100 Song, The Chainsmokers and Halsey took the opportunity to pay a tribute to Avicii and his passion for music and his contribution to the EDM scene. Andrew Taggart, one half of The Chainsmokers, said, “His passing was a great loss for the music world and for us. He was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways. Simply put, he meant so much to us and everyone in the EDM community.” © Billboard Halsey emphasised on the importance of discussing mental health, saying, “Everyone who worked with him would agree that he was such a joy, and it makes this tragedy all the more painful, and it's a reminder to all of us to be there and to support and love all of our friends and family members who may be struggling with mental health issues.” Here's the video: Nothing but love for Avicii from @TheChainsmokers & @halsey as they present the #BBMAs for Top Hot 100 Song. ð pic.twitter.com/k89czVBrih — Billboard Music Awards (@BBMAs) May 21, 2018 Avicii's last tweet was about his nomination in the Top Dance/Electronic Album at the Billboard Music Awards, a category which was one by The Chainsmokers yesterday and in honour of Avicii's memory, they dedicated the award to him. © Billboard Andrew said, “We want to dedicate this award to Avicii. I know everyone that was nominated for this award was massively influenced by him. He made us believe that this was a realistic career, something we could do with our lives, inspired all of us, influenced our music, influenced pop music, music in general, and he will be missed. I hope you're somewhere. I hope you've found peace, and we love you.” .@TheChainsmokers are #BBMAs WINNERS! Congrats on taking home the ð for Top Dance/Electronic Artist! pic.twitter.com/WOXnCgEExT — Billboard Music Awards (@BBMAs) May 21, 2018
  9. Will it be an exaggeration if I say that breaking records runs in the Dhoni clan? Ok, I accept, maybe it is! But I don't really know how else to explain the fact, that every time MS Dhoni, his wife Sakshi or their daughter Ziva do something, it instantly breaks the internet. Be it Dhoni turning into a hairstylist for Ziva, crawling around with her when she was a toddler, Ziva cheering for her 'Papa' from the stands or simply posting videos of her playing; each time the father-daughter duo do something, it goes viral on the social media and last night's match wasn't any different. © BCCI On one hand, where MS Dhoni was busy breaking, or should we say setting a new record for the world, his daughter Ziva broke the internet in less than a minute, 42 seconds to be precise. What started as Indian Premier League has now turned into a battlefield, with every team putting their lives on stake (not literally) to bring home the coveted trophy. And last night saw another nail-biting match between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab. No offence, but there are no points for guessing who won the match last night. © Twitter Dhoni led CSK to defeat KXIP by five wickets and while the entire Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune was filled with cheers for CSK, his daughter Ziva concluded the celebrations in the cutest way possible. @msdhoni Thala having some fun with ziva #WhistlePodu pic.twitter.com/ze2MwEQoM0 — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) May 20, 2018 After the victorious match, Ziva was seen playing with Dhoni's cap and dancing on the field and we can say it was one of the best highlights from last night's match. Having 'Captain Cool' as a father comes with a lot of added pressure, but Ziva is already a diva in her own right and in all honesty, is more popular than we can ever be. In other news, now the fight for the IPL trophy will be between SunRisers Hyderabad, Chennai Super Kings, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.
  10. Now man boobs is a thing most men hate, but also it is something that most men, especially nowadays, have. Gynecomastia, which is popularly known as male breasts, are majorly caused because of two things. 1) Hormonal Imbalance Some men, who are generally on the fatter side of the scale and have highly disorganized lifestyles, face hormonal issues. Estrogen production rises and testosterone takes a dip. The lowering levels of androgens and high amounts of female hormone, which is estrogen, kicks up the growth of breast tissue in men. 2) High Body Fat Level More than hormonal imbalance, most men have male boobs because they are simply too fat. That's harsh but that's true. This is categorized as pseudo-gynecomastia. It's called pseudo, which means fake because large amounts of fat deposits under and around the nipple area, making it look like breasts. Body Fat And Chest Before I proceed to list down the exercises, please bear this in your mind that your problem of man-boobs will not go away if you don't work on lowering your total body fat levels. Just doing push-ups with the hopes of losing fat is plain and simple stupid. Spot fat reduction isn't possible. So watch what you eat and along with that, start doing these push-up variations that can be done anywhere. 1) The Classic 'Slow Tempo' Push-Up © MensJournal If you have been to a gym or you haven't, everybody knows how a classic push up is done. Keep your hands only a little wider than you shoulder width. Don't go too wide. Now, this isn't a race to get in as many as possible. Slow your tempo down and feel the squeeze as you press up from the floor. Feel your pectorals getting contracted. 2) Diamond © YouTube Make a diamond with your palms on the floor and press up. If done correctly the diamond press up over loads the clavicular head (upper chest) and the sternal head (lower chest) with sheer force. Since the surface area under covered by the hands is much less, the chest comes into over –drive. 3) Banded Push Ups © Tnation Just get into a classic push up and add a resistance band to it. 4) Hindu Push Up © YouTube One of the most under-rated push variations, the Hindu push up is probably responsible for single handedly developing the chest musculature of the Indian Olympic wrestlers. It's a staple in their routine and works the chest, the shoulders and of course the core. 5) Dead-Stop Push Up © YouTube The dead stop variation is more of an explosive movement when it comes to press ups. But this can quickly add strength and mass to your pecs.
  11. What happens when we get two event invites for the same day? While some of us loners won't know the feeling, for the more popular ones among us, it can be quite a pain. How do you make it for two events on the same day? It's even harder if both events are on different ends of the city or maybe even in different cities. This is exactly what the who's who of India has to deal with right now. Two huge events happening at the same time, Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja's wedding and Isha Ambani-Anand Piramal's engagement. If you had to choose, which one would you go for? The Ambani's engagement, of course. You have to appease one of the richest men in the world, right? Sonam will surely understand. If Anand was your bro, he would too. Also, it's not like you're missing the wedding. Just the sangeet. That's an event meant for uncles who want to go crazy on the dance floor. Given, uncles at the Sonam-Anand sangeet included the likes of Anil Kapoor, but still, it's not reason enough to skip what's possibly going to be the most expensive wedding of the year. Here are 5 celebrities who feel the same way as you. Or maybe they weren't invited for Sonam ki shaadi. Either way, they were at the most important event of last night, if not for everyone, at least for them: Sachin Tendulkar Source: Viral Bhayani Isn't it obvious Sachin would be here? Whenever Nita Ambani is at a Mumbai Indian's match, Sachin Tendulkar is also there. He does have a lot of free time on his hands now that he's retired from being the God of cricket. The two things he has in abundance right now are time and money. After decades of selfless service to the country, none of us have a right to question what he does with either, right? Aamir Khan Source: Instagram The man has kept a low profile in Bollywood over the years but that's what makes these appearances more special. Yes, Aamir Khan chose to come out in public last night for Isha Ambani's engagement. Who knew there was a connection? Or maybe daddy Mukesh just paid for his presence? Either way, he's not one to shy away from the paparazzi as seen below. A post shared by IN.com (@getindotcom) on May 7, 2018 at 6:49pm PDT Ranbir Kapoor For the second day in a row, Ranbir Kapoor has skipped Sonam ki shaadi. He wasn't there on Sunday and wasn't there yesterday either. Then again, most of us would feel the same way about going for our ex's wedding, right? We're not even sure if he was invited. Yes, we all say that we're over past relationships but, are we really? Would you want to hang around with your ex? Would you want them at your wedding? A post shared by AliaðRanbir Deepika Daily (@aliaranbirdeepikadaily) on May 7, 2018 at 8:12pm PDT Shah Rukh Khan Unlike Aamir, this man really doesn't like being clicked by the shutterbugs. Or at least that's the feeling we're getting considering how it's so hard to get a decent picture from the event. This is the best we could find: Source: Instagram It's like SRK doesn't want anyone to know he was at a rival IPL team owners daughter's wedding. But, there's no way the paparazzi would miss King Khan. We managed to get a pretty decent video of him: A post shared by ABP News (@abpnewstv) on May 7, 2018 at 8:55pm PDT Karan Johar Wherever SRK goes, Karan Johar isn't far behind. Or maybe it's the other way around. We don't know for sure. The one thing we do know is he doesn't need the photographers because he's cool like a millennial. So, selfies are the way to go for this father of two. Source: Instagram
  12. Yes, you can't see John Cena, that's his whole deal, but he also makes exceptions, especially when it comes to PM Modi and his mother. A picture of Modi's mother Hiraben in an autorickshaw from 2014 resurfaced recently and has gotten people on Twitter talking for a weird reason. So, this is my theory – she took an auto ride with John Cena, but turns out you can only see his hand. After all, he has to live up to his famous line. (just kidding) Twitter The photo was shared by a BJP minister to highlight the fact that even the Prime Minister's mother uses an auto and to show everyone how humble he actually is. It was also a dig at Rahul Gandhi saying how his mother is the world's fourth wealthiest politician. Our Beloved PM Shri @narendramodi 's Mother is still travelling in Auto, While @RahulGandhi 's Mother is the World's 4th Wealthiest Politician!#NarendraModi pic.twitter.com/HsLuTBYUaI — Vijay Sampla MoS (@vijay_sampla) May 4, 2018 Whatever the intention of the picture was, Vijay Sampla should have taken a hard look at the picture before posting. Did you notice anything weird? Like that hand on her arm? When no one could have been possibly holding her arm? Yep, right there. Was that auto haunted? It's obviously a bad photoshop job but how cool it would've been if autos could get haunted. Looks like this tweet throwing shade at Congress massively backfired. Remember the whole deal that if you don't have anything nice to say, you shouldn't say anything at all? He should've followed that here. And, then he was obviously called out because it's such a big photoshop fail. How proud these BJP leaders feel sharing photoshopped photos. Not their fault actually, sycophancy is the only way one can rise in Modi's BJP. pic.twitter.com/Rkgm8vYcgn — Jas Oberoi (@iJasOberoi) May 5, 2018 It's clearly photoshopped man. Many here were questioning about the hand holding Narendra Modi's Mother. But no, it's not Photoshoped. Looks like the hand is of the lady in pic (2,3) pic.twitter.com/AiW9eYryrC — Unofficial Sususwamy (@swamv39) May 5, 2018 Yep. See the "hand of Godse" — Punster® (@Pun_Starr) May 5, 2018 Good point. Actually, it would be nice if the respected PM could ensure his mom traveled in as much comfort as he does. — Kiran Manral (@KiranManral) May 6, 2018 Yes, please. Atleast use a better photoshop professional for ur next tweet! I mean seriously! ðð — Arpit Bikram Das (@abdas452) May 5, 2018 And, now the best reaction.

  14. Who said dads can't enjoy their daughter's wedding function? If that's what you thought until now, Anil Kapoor is here to change the stereotype. While everyone is talking about Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's big fat wedding tomorrow, it is Anil Kapoor who is literally stealing all the limelight. Dancing like crazy, Anil has burned the dance floor with his jhakaas moves. Even if you have never been his fan, this video of him dancing like a true Punjabi will make you one. While bhangda is everyone's go-to move, father Anil makes it look uber cool with his desi swag. Spinning on the dance floor from here and there, he is the real star of the night. From shaking his legs to greeting everyone with a smile, Anil is the true blue star of the big night and there is no one who can say otherwise. Fun and fabulous! @anilskapoor can't contain himself as daughter @sonamkapoor is all set to get married. #SonamKiShaadi #EverydayPhenomenal A post shared by Filmfare (@filmfare) on May 7, 2018 at 8:13am PDT Talking about Sonam and Anand, their Sangeet function has already begun in full swing. On 8th May they will tie the knot in a Sikh wedding, followed by a reception.
  15. India is a diverse country and we all know that. But sometimes with diversity comes differences, and we are aware about that as well. While, some credit goes to Cricket and Bollywood for keeping the whole country unified, a village in Udyavara, Kerala is fighting all odds and setting a great example, which the whole nation should learn from. How often do we get to see Muslims participating in a Hindu ritual and vice-versa? Very rarely, but in this village rare things happen more than often, thus bringing about a positive change that we all need right now. Pexels According to a report in The Times Of India, Sri Udyavara Arasumanjushnath temple tries to ensure participation of the Muslim community in the annual 'Rath Yatra'. The temple invites the members of 1000 Jama'ath Mosque to its annual festival, which is marked by taking out a chariot procession. What's more, in a warm gesture, the mosque representatives too invite the temple custodians to its festival that is held once in five years. Reportedly, for the past three generations, the religious institutions have been following this custom and the inviting part is carried out ceremoniously, where the custodians of the temple led by three velichappad (oracles) visit the mosque on the on the first Friday after Vishu. This year the four-day-long temple festival will held from May 9 to 12. As far as invitations for the Hindus are concerned, the responsibility is given to the elders of the Muslim community, led by the Imam of the mosque. Pexels Sukumar Shetty, the present manju bhandari (senior-most person of the family of the temple's custodians) said, "This has been followed from the times of our great gradfathers." T S Sayyed, who represents the mosque at the temple said, "We are active participants of the temple festival. The temple authorities offer us a truckload of vegetables, ghee and rice during the mosque festival." Apppreciating the efforts of these religious institutions, district collector K Jeevan Babu said, "The temple and mosque are examples of not just peaceful religious coexistence, but also uphold the unity of humandkind beyond parochial religious considerations. The district administration appreciates and also extends them all possible help." Pexels In fact, reportedly the seniors from both communities share a common platform built around a Banyan tree during the festival days. According to the legend of this custom, when the temple's deities crossed the sea and travelled to the land, they were first welcomed by the the mosque's custodians. Since then it was decided that this tradition should be observed everyday and that it is also be known to the public. In fact, if the village's belief is anything to go by, then it's also said that whoever tried to break this bond between the two religious institutions, met with mysterious ends. Honestly, if this doesn't prove as a great example of unity, then we wonder what does. (All images are for representational purpose.) Source: The Times Of India
