  1. Ever since the release of ‘It', it seems like Pennywise is the only thing everyone can talk about, everything from his terrifying smile to his disturbing backstory. But, someone came up with a genius way to make the creepy clown a little less creepy, and will probably help people who are scared of Pennywise to sleep a little better at night. A Twitter account, appropriately called Pennywise Dancing, is all about finding humour in horror. Remember that terrifying scene from the movie where Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgård) dances in an attempt to terrify one of the main characters, Beverly (Sophia Lillis). Someone saw that clip of him dancing and just ran with it. It turns out that Pennywise's unique dancing can work with just about any work, and this account has all the proof you need. 1.

  2. Let's get this straight—unibrows are wrong. Very, very wrong. You could be handsome, a clotheshorse or even gold digger's fantasy–but with bushy soldiers up there, your braggadocio holds invalid. And however manly a hirsute situation may seem, it makes you look shabby, scraggly and well...not very attractive. All we're trying to say here is that, whatever said and done, brow-caring is easy: trim, pluck and sculpt them down. After all, it's also about hygiene, aesthetic and most importantly, the what attracts the opposite sex. And really, your brows do count. © MensXP But that's just the start. Bigger questions here: what should your brows look like, how to trim them (or shave them?), should I pluck/tweeze or what's the best way of doing it all. For starters, let's define the most superior brows in male anatomy. In ideology, the ends of your brows should coincide with the corner of your eyes and their starting points should begin at the nose line. But the big difference in male species (as opposed to your mot), is that you should keep a bit of the bush intact. Men should look like men, not precisely cut gemstones. But that doesn't take away the million-dollar truth—we all need to tame our brows anyway. But should you trim or tweeze? Well, to be honest, you need a combination of two. Start with trimming first and shorten the length of the strands you intend to pluck. And then, turn to plucking the hair from the roots, instead of just snipping them to a length (otherwise, they'll grow back quick anyway). With the basics in place, time to prepare for some pain (and gain). What You Need: 1. Eyebrow Comb/Clean Toothbrush 2. Short Blade Scissors/Moustache Scissors/Nail Scissors 3. Tweezers (angled ones that narrow up the front) 4. Moisturizer © MensXP Step 1: Take a hot water shower. Begin with opening your pores up and loosening the strands you're going to be pluck. Simple solution: a hot shower. But in case you're against this idea, use a wet cloth dipped in warm water instead. Place it on your brows for 2-3 minutes! © MensXP Step 2: Comb your brows, in this manner... Bring that eyebrow comb/clean toothbrush out of your caddy, and comb your eyebrows straight up. Begin with the starting point (near the nose) and comb outwards, until you reach its endpoint near your temples. Step 3: Your first round of trimming feat. a pair of scissors. But mind you, not your craft-class scissors. Holding the hair on your brows upwards (keep using the comb, as and when required), snip off the desired length first. But not too much—start things slow. Now, while carefully examining the shape of your brows, slyly trim all the excess strands above the top line of your brows. Cut every strand that's hanging' a little way out of brow territory. Now take a U-turn, comb your brows downwards and check for visible strands outside the bottom line of your brows. Step 4: Time for pain! In case you've been too dumb to notice, it was all child's play till now. Time for the real deal—plucking every flyaway right from its root! Start with combing your brows naturally, towards your temples. Now, bring out your tweezers and pluck out all the strands that are growing out of the brow line. In particular, check for the ones that are growing independently and far away from your brows. Repeat the same procedure below your brows! © MensXP Step 5: Tada, unibrow! If you've been bridging your brows all this while, time to grow the f-ck out of that nonsense, too. Pluck the strands in the center first and then move towards the brows (one brow at a time). How much should you pluck? Place your thumb in the center and pluck anything that falls right under it. Remember: don't aim at a bald patch in the center, you might end up losing out on your masculine arch. Step 6: Finish off with a moisturiser! You've trimmed, you've plucked and really gone awry on your brows. Time to pamper them with hydration! Post achieving a well-groomed pair of brows, apply some body milk/moisturizer on the area. And using your fingers, bury it into the skin. © MensXP Final words: as per requirement, repeat the process as often as needed.
  3. College fun, drama, that sarcastic guy, your first crush, the chilled out dude, old memories; these thoughts and more will all be brought back to life, but only if you scroll down. Do you want that? We know you do. If you are still reading this, it means somewhere in your heart you do want to revive and relive all those beautiful but long gone memories. Here is your chance to experience that time again. Have an awesome time, fresher. 1. Go Goa Gone © The Indian Express So you think you know what happens when three friends decide to visit an isolated island for a rave party in Goa? No, you don't. What if the next morning you find yourself not only stranded but also surrounded and hunted by flesh-eating zombies. Yeah, I know that was a quick synopsis, unless you have already watched the movie. Don't read that again. Instead, watch the movie. And before you do that, that listen to this awesome track - BABAJI KI BOOTY. And you know what? Saif is there to rock the party as well. He is the real deal. Watch it, is I am saying. 2. Delhi Belly © Wikipedia It is a black comedy by Aamir Khan Production and if you have already seen the film you know what I am going to talk about. Bhaag D.K. Bose, Switty Tera Pyaar Chaida, and Jaa Chudail are some of the tracks that might have made their way to your eardrums at some point. Long story short, it is the story of three strugglers who are also roommates. They unknowingly become the target of a powerful gangster when they misplace his expensive diamonds. Watch the film to see what happens to thse fools! You won't regret it, so make sure your headphones are plugged in or your family is at least 100 meters away from you. 3. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara © Bollywood Hungama Hrithik, Farhan, and Abhay? What else can you ask for in a single movie? A better storyline, maybe if you are a victim of the age old, love story scam in Bollywood. Yes, the movie's storyline is good enough to keep you on your couch for 2 and ahalf hours, without a doubt. A bachelor's road trip that becomes an opportunity to mend fences, heal wounds, fall in love with life and combat their worst fears. Did we forget to mention Katrina Kaif? Yeah, she is in here too, looking fine AF. 4. Dil Chahta Hai © Gaana Again it is Farhan, but this time he's directing the movie. You can say that this film is one of his masterpieces. It is a story about three friends who share a deep bond but are separated due to their different approaches towards relationships. Sounds boring? Maybe you could blame my style then, but the movie is brilliant, that we can guarantee. And guys, we're heading back to Goa for this film. 5. 3 Idiots © Wikipedia You do not share the same world as we do if you haven't seen this movie. One fact: It is the highest grossing movie in Bollywood and we swear that it is not just some other Bollywood nonsense. It is genuinely good. If we talk about the storyline, it is not something you've never seen before. Although, it may sound quite the opposite when you hear words like college days, passion, drama, essentially the same stuff. But wait, there is so much more than that. You just gotta watch this one if you decide to watch only one today. 6. Pyaar Ka Punchnama © Wikipedia If you are one of those guys who feel like their girlfriend is dominating them, then this is your watch for the day. You won't need a smoke to chill out after you are done watching this movie. You will see all your frustration melt away when you first hear the 15-minute monologue delivered by one of the victims in the movie. Just watch it. Trust us! 7. Kai Po Che © The Asian Cinema Blog Whatever one may say about the writing skills Chetan Bhagat possesses, movies adapted from his books are all Bollywood hits. Writing skills? Really? Don't ask me. I am not asking you to read his novels. I am just suggesting you go and watch 'Kai Po Che', a work based on his novel. It is a good movie. Its storyline is a combination of different subjects like people realizing their goals in a turbulent city, religious disparities, politics, riots, and earthquakes. 8. Hera Pheri © YouTube/Goldmines Hindi This film is a true classic. Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal are at their best here. Not much to say about the storyline but if you are smart enough there is a catch in the name and that's all the story is about. Do not miss this one.
  4. It looks like it's going to be a sad weekend for Bollywood buffs as none of the films that have been released today have managed to impress us. After ‘Haseena Parkar', ‘Bhoomi' seems to follow a path of disappointment as well. Rape and retribution are Bollywood's latest filmy trend. This year, we have already seen ‘Maatr' and ‘Mom' and now we've got another story with the same narrative. Sigh! Plot: Arun Sachdeva (Sanjay Dutt) is a shoe-smith who loves his daughter Bhoomi (Aditi Rao Hydari). Everything is going well in their little world until one incident shatters their lives. Bhoomi is raped by Dhauli (Sharad Kelkar) and his gang. Arun and Bhoomi are both affected by this shameful incident and he plans to take revenge and deliver the justice her attackers deserve. © Tseries First things first, Sanjay Dutt is a badass in the film and we totally love his demeanour. There are very few actors who have that impact on viewers and despite being away from the silver screen for a very long time, Sanjay have totally nailed it with his angry-man avatar. Omung Kumar's ‘Bhoomi' is an 80's rape and revenge saga that we have seen over and over again. The story is trite, and though the director tried to add a feminist angle to the film, he fails miserably at delivering a moving story. © Tseries Things are pretty obvious. The girl is consistently shamed for being who she is. You have cops who are not cooperative at all, a public prosecutor whose sole motive is to embarrass the victim for being raped in the first place. And we've also got the typical courtroom drama where questions about Bhoomi's virginity are raised. Wow! Because everything at the end of the day is about your virginity, right? Looking at this cliche drama, all you want to do is scream out in frustration. After all, how much nonsense can we stomach? © Tseries Omung tries to change the narrative but if you truly intend to do that, one needs to be very careful about the screenplay and dialogue being delivered on-screen. You'll often hear viewers giggling and laughing at the stupid courtroom fiasco. It's an absolute shame that the script reeks of staleness. ‘Bhoomi' is filled with social messages which make no impact on you or your soul. You have lessons being thrown at you from every direction about gender discrimination, woman rights, respecting women, and the double standards our society often follows when judging a male or a female, which leaves you incredibly annoyed. © Tseries Talking about Aditi, who plays the titular character, she is seen sobbing and grieving through most of the film but she isn't strong enough to fight back. Her character lacks the strength that could have moved the audience and made a serious impact. Sharad Kelkar, on the other hand, tries to be the quintessential villain but you don't really like his presence onscreen anyway. Despite the film falling apart and going haywire, it's good to see Dutt representing his character flawlessly. His acting really affects you. You feel his happiness, helplessness, hurt; it's all too evident and natural. You may not like the way he beats the living daylights out of a bunch of people, but you truly won't be able to get over his larger-than-life persona. Watch ‘Bhoomi' just for Sanjay Dutt!
  5. It's that time of the year again when beer drinkers unite to make merry and chug down beer like the world and their lives depended on it. Oktoberfest—the German beer festival—is one of the most popular festivals in the world, thanks to its connection to beer, the drink that most men love. © Pexels And it goes just as well for Indians, too. Over the past few years, celebrating beer and beer drinkers during this time has become a tradition in most metropolitan cities of the country. Cafés, bars and pubs across the country come up with new and innovative ideas to attract beer lovers to chug to glory. “The fact that Oktoberfest comes at a time in India where people are wrapped up in festive vibes and celebrations are at large. Good food, beer and happiness are what the fest is all about; especially in metropolitan cities where we see an amalgamation of different cultures. It serves as a very good time for restaurants to roll out promotional activities, special deals and offers to attract the crowd with interactive concepts,” says Priyank Sukhija, Owner, CEO and MD of First Fiddle Restaurants Pvt. Ltd. We decided to talk to a few of these bar and pub owners about the importance of Oktoberfest in India and listed out some of the best places to enjoy your beer, this Oktoberfest. Prost! © Express UK “As Indians, we just need a reason to celebrate. So, with the love for beer as a beverage accompanied with scrumptious food in a country like ours, we could celebrate it every day. Oktoberfest just gives us a good enough reason to legitimize our obsession with beer,” says Arjun Raj Kher, Business Head, Hitchki, Powai. “India's tropical weather is actually what also makes it a perfect destination for beer lovers. And for us, October marks the start of festive season which gives us all the more reason to drink,” quips Dhairya Sethi, Owner of Branch. © Unsplash “The young Indian is a global citizen, and youngsters need no prodding to celebrate another occasion to have a good time! Oktoberfest is as good a reason as any to pull out the stops, have a premium dining experience, and join in on global conversations,” Ashish Thadani, CEO, TI Absolute Concepts (Ciclo Café) seconds. “When it comes to drinking beer, the growth rates in India are very healthy thanks to young and increasingly affluent consumers, as well as changing cultural attitudes,” Thadani further explains. Jaspreet Maadaan, Owner, The Classroom, in Gurgaon agrees and informs that the venue sees a distinctive increase of customers by a good 20 to 30 percent. © Pexels “Oktoberfest is now pretty much a worldwide celebration of everything brewed, the heart of which of course, lies in the German tradition and love for beer. It's mostly a great time for pubs and bars in Delhi, the weather demands a fantastic cold brew, the festive season is hanging around and everyone wants a piece of the world's most popular beer festival closer to home,” quips Rachit Goel, owner of the newly opened Bar Cat, in South Extension-II, New Delhi. “Indian bars and pubs mostly though make it a discount-based drinking session of beer, rather than a community drinking experience and I think that's what is essentially missing in the F&B industry in the country. Discount driven events don't have a heart and soul, and you can call it Oktoberfest or what you like, but the fun of it is not in the name but the concept,” he further opines. © Beer-y Sausages & Crusty Pretzel at The Irish House Mr. Sanju Arora, General Manager, The Irish House tells us that the venue sees an increase of approximately 10-15% in their footfall during Oktoberfest. “There's a great amount of planning and effort that we put into curating a great ‘German' experience for our guests at all our outposts across India. We take care of all aspects to recreate the same vibe – right from themed décor, photo booths, special food menu, drinking games, live band performances, and of course, lots of beer with great deals on a range of domestic as well as international brands (both, bottled and craft varieties). We also do our bit to promote safe drinking through partnerships with popular cab service brands. We go all out to bring the best of the biggest worldwide beer drinking fest and try to keep it quite authentic – the décor (similar to the traditional white and blue draped tents with lights); hanging gingerbread hearts; our servers wearing suspenders & caps; German dishes like pretzels, kartoffelpuffer, apple strudel, sausages, etc; maximum variety of draught beer (both local craft brews and international brands); fun drinking games; and even live band performances paying tribute to popular German rock bands,” Arora elaborates. © Kaitlyn's Beer Garden, Mumbai Another prominent venue that goes all out during this time of year is The Beer Café which is the country's largest alco-beverage chain. TBC comes up with they like to call the ‘Okotbrewfest'—an innovative spin-off for the German beer festival. Under this annual initiative, The Beer Café makes the largest collection of authentic German beers and cuisines available to its patrons in India—Delhi, Gurugram, Mumbai, and Pune—between September 16 and October 31. Premium brews such as Eichbaum, Erdinger Weissbier, Erdinger Dunkel, Schneider Weisse, and Hofbräu Weisse are made available across cities, as are authentic German cuisine such as bratwurst, krakauer, and bockwurst sausage platters. Rahul Singh, Founder & CEO, The Beer Café, says, “When it comes to beer, nobody does it quite like the Germans do. Why, they've even got an entire festival dedicated to it! It is to recreate the spirit of Oktoberfest for Indian beerophiles that we have decided to celebrate our own Oktobrewfest. We will be serving premium German brews and authentic Deutsche cuisine across all outlets in select locations. Moreover, through in-store collaterals, we are giving our patrons a chance to really immerse themselves in the beery festive fervour without having to go all the way to Germany!” © The Classroom “India being a new beer drinking country with people ready to explore new tastes and flavors in both Food and Beverage, Oktoberfest brings in great opportunity for many to enjoy and experience Global cuisine with varieties of Wheat, Lager, Klosch, Ale and delicacies from Bavarian, Thuringian and Lower Saxon Cuisines of Germany,” reasons Hukum Shekhawat, Mixologist, Radisson Blu Atria Bengaluru. “In, general, the consumption of beer is high during Oktoberfest from September, 16th to October, 4th for the Radisson Bengaluru property. “We have tried creating an ambience by getting some really authentic Bavarian delicious like cheese hedgehog, Sauerkraut and potato, chorizo and mushroom tapas and so on, paired with wheat/lager beers. We gear up in suspenders and Alpine hats along with melodious German music,” Shekhawat says. © Pexels At Kaitlyn's Beer Garden, in Bandra, Mumbai, the Oktoberfest enjoys an almost legendary status worldwide and more and more in India. Several pubs and microbreweries are trying to recreate the magic of the fest, by offering special menus, music, a Bavarian setup and thousands of liters of beer. The traffic especially on weekends are a full house. In India, it also depends on how the restobars promote their offers on beer and food for the weekdays as well as the weekends. Navin Mittal, Founder & Partner, Gateway Brewing Co. tells us, “Last year, we brewed two additional German-style beers apart from our flagship German style White Zen (hefeweizen) and German style Doppelganger (dunkelweizen). Both these, along with the Vienna Style Lager and Oktoberfest Lager, sold out very quickly at our client bars and restaurants across Mumbai and Pune. So much so that we hoped we had brewed a lot more. If last year is an indicator of the interest in Oktoberfest, we anticipate immense excitement this year as well. We are not only brewing the Vienna Style Lager and Oktoberfest Lager again this year but are also supplying to the IGCC Octoberfest event that is being held early this year in October. In addition to this, we are celebrating Oktoberfest at the Gateway Taproom, in BKC, Mumbai and while not an Indian festival, it is loved by one and all.” © Pexels “India does not have its own drink fests, apart from some annual wine festivals which are now becoming a ritual. Oktoberfest therefore, is a drink pilgrimage for us. With Indians travelling more, exposure from all media channels and easy availability of beers have together contributed to making Oktoberfest global as much as it is German,” explains Ajit Balgi founder of The Happy High is a wine, beverage & food consulting and experiences firm which curates wine dinners, whiskey degustation, and more bespoke events. © The Oktoberfest Trip Even a city like Chennai, being laced with numerous German companies like Daimler, Bosh, B-Braun Medical and Durr India, their strong presence allows for the German expats and employees to join in and commemorate the festival; their place of choice being majorly Leather Bar, at The Park Chennai. Keeping in mind the festive spirit of the festival, the décor of the bar is themed around Oktoberfest. The Leather Bar also has a Dirndll dress photo booth where guests can pose with beer that's served only in the beer mugs during this festival. The festival sees chefs curating authentic Bavarian Fare like Spiedine, Lockig Currywurest, Hühnchen Bratwurst and Apple Strudel. © Loaded Kartoffelpuffer at The Irish House Oktoberfest is easily as popular as the Navratras, Pujo and Diwali celebrations in the country with people even combining the festivals. It does make for a very cosmopolitan feel in the country, no doubt. And the hype around the beer festival is only increasing with time, as more homegrown beer labels sprout; not to mention the many restobars and pubs opening up and giving ready consumers something new to try almost instantly. What's not to love, I guess? Just fetch yourself a beer of your choice and celebrate the German spirit! © Tomatina at Hitchki, Powai
  6. You may have heard the phrase; 'a dying man never lies', maybe that's why their words count so much. When someone is on the verge of life and death,their words generally resonate with you. Here is a compilation of memorable last words spoken by some famous people 1. Sir Isaac Newton, mathematician, astronomer, and physicist © Open Culture He said, “I don't know what I may seem to the world. But as to myself, I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore and diverting myself now and then in finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than the ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” 2. Leonardo da Vinci, an Italian Renaissance polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, literature, anatomy, and cartography. © Unique Life He died saying, “I have offended God and mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have.” 3. Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States © The Philanthropy Roundtable As he lay dying at the age of 84, his daughter told him to change his position in bed so he could breathe properly. Franklin's last words were, “A dying man can do nothing easy.” 4. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, British writer best known for his detective fiction featuring the character of Sherlock Holmes © Goodreads He died at age 71 in his garden. He turned to his wife and said, “You are wonderful,”. He clutched his chest and died. 5. T.S. Eliot, British essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic, and "one of the twentieth century's major poets" © Paris Review He was only able to whisper one word as he died: “Valerie,” the name of his wife. 6. Ernest Hemingway, American novelist, short story writer, and journalist © History Cooperative Before he committed suicide, he told his wife Mary, “Goodnight, my kitten.” 7. Sir Winston Churchill, served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. © ITV His last words were, “I'm bored with it all.” 8.

Archimedes, Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer © Steemit He said, "Stand away, fellow, from my diagram!" He was killed during the Second Punic War. According to historians, a soldier came up to the mathematician and told him to go with him to Marcellus. Archimedes refused to do so until he finished the problem he was working on. Enraged, the soldier killed him. 10. Eugene O'Neill, American playwright and Nobel laureate in Literature © Beaming Notes His last words were, “I knew it! I knew it! Born in a hotel room and, goddamn it, dying in a hotel room.” He was born in a room at the Broadway Hotel on what is now Times Square. He died at age 65 in a Boston hotel. 11.

He was probably referring to the view outside his window. 14. Bob Marley, musician: © EWAO "Money can't buy life." 15. Ludwig van Beethoven, composer, and pianist: © YouTube/CloudBiography Though his last words are not confirmed but some say the composer, who was deaf by the end of his life, said: "I will hear in heaven" while others say he said: "Plaudite, amici, comedia finita est" (Applaud, friends, the comedy is finished) And some others say that after a publisher brought the composer 12 bottles of wine, his final words were: "Pity, pity, too late!"
  7. Abracadabra…and it's clean. Now, splash some water, pat dry and instill hydration back into the skin (with a moisturizer). But well, wiping the desert clean isn't the biggie here, you see. The process, (depending on how hairy you are and what's on your mind), that involves the right tools, a firm hand, tested angles and a knack of trimming sensitive skin, is the actual test of your manscaping skills. Which, at an amateur level, leaves cuts, boils, burning sensations or worse—a bloody mess, sometimes. Speaking of genital mowing and its sporadic repercussions, these 5 men here have a few personal horrific tales to share with the world. © Marie Claire 1. "When pulling back my foreskin wasn't fun anymore" - Vishesh, 27 "Just a normal night, man…I was home alone, nothing to do, so decided to shave my cave. You know the drill. The dick was in my hand and I was moving a brand new razor over my foreskin, slowly approaching the head of my penis. I'm not circumcised, by the way. Then what? I got cut, dude—right below the gift wrapping tip of my foreskin. What I first saw as an ordinary abrasion, ended up oozing out a few drops of blood. It was burning like fire and for the next few days, well…I couldn't jack off for the next few days." © Enki Relations 2. "Balls are like (your) Adam's Apple. Very, very sensitive" - Sagar, 23 "So, I'm not the guy who usually shaves his balls. I just shave my dick and areas around it (never the balls). I've actually just been very fearful of shaving them—they look wrinkly, so appear very sensitive. But this one day, I gathered some courage and decided to trim them with my electric trimmer anyway. A very, very bad decision (obviously), that eventually called for antiseptic intervention and a band-aid for a week. Besides being painful, it felt weird having something stuck up my balloons." © Hemophilia Federation of America 3. "Skin tags are a reality. Even down there" - Anish, 26 "I've been trimming since I was 16. I'm 26 now and believe that I've mastered the art of manscaping. But until a few months back, I wasn't aware of one big thing that can happen down there—skin tags. So here's what happened—I noticed a bump on my taint a while back. What looked like just a random boil initially, turned out to be a skin tag (a term I stumbled upon when I started to google). With time, it grew bigger and started to pain even if I walked. Just three days later, for the first time as a grown-up adult, I found myself flashing to a doctor—who removed my skin tag with a laser. Casual!" © Telegraph UK 4. "Grip is good but it can let you down" - Yohann, 24 "Sometime around Diwali last year, I was snipping every long strand off my balls. I was holding them straight up and tight (for more grip) and cutting them very close to the root. You see, the terrain of your sack skin is weird anyway, right? I got very impatient this one second and snipped my skin along too. Of course, the skin didn't fall off, my jaw did." © Very Smart Brothas 5. "If you're gay and manscape your bum, you've nicked your hole at least once in life" - Shantanu, 25 "First off, it was my first time doing it. And two, I didn't have a hand mirror with me. I was standing awkwardly, bent over, in front of my bathroom mirror, hoping for a seamless arse-trimming experience. Of course, I misjudged while trimming around my hole (maybe because I was even panicking with paranoia), I ended up nicking my hole. TBH, it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be and I applied antiseptic instantly. But I really had trouble pooping for the next few days. Plus, I'm a bottom, so no sex for a week. Ugh."
  8. For anyone and everyone associated with the film industry, winning the Academy Award aka the Oscar is the ultimate goal. The Indian Film industry obviously doesn't like lagging behind either. Every year, The Film Federation of India appoints a committee to choose one film among those released that year to be submitted as India's official entry to the Academy as the nomination for the “Best Foreign Language Film” category. This year too, the FFI nominated one movie for the category and unsurprisingly, it's the Rajkummar Rao starrer ‘Newton'. The announcement was made by the Film Federation of India, who said the movie was selected out of 26 contenders. The movie is a political satire and follows the story of Newton Kumar, a government clerk who is sent on election duty in the conflict-ridden jungles of the Chhattisgarh, reflecting the political reality of that area. The film was premiered earlier at Berlin where it won the CICAE (International Confederation of Art Cinemas) award for best film in the forum section. It also managed to win a jury prize at the Hong Kong international film festival. However, in India the movie has just released today and has already received positive reviews from both critics as well as the audience. The news about the nomination was confirmed by Rajkummar Rao on his Twitter page. Very happy to share this news that #NEWTON is India's official entry to the #OSCARS this year.

Congratulations @RajkummarRao @TripathiiPankaj @ManMundra @Amit_Masurkar — Vicky (@sundiairlifted) September 22, 2017 Over the years, India has bagged three Academy Award nominations in the foreign-language category; first in 1957 with ‘Mother India', followed by 1989's ‘Salaam Bombay' and 2002's ‘Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India', however, the country has never won an Oscar. This year, Newton will face serious competition from a number of movies from across the world- Ruben Ostlund's ‘The Square' from Sweden, Fatih Akin's ‘In the Fade from Germany', Angelina Jolie's ‘First They Killed My Father from Cambodia', Sebastian Lelio's ‘A Fantastic Woman from Chile', Farhan Alam's ‘Sawan from Pakistan' and Robin Campillo's ‘BPM: Beats Per Minute from France', among others. We've got our fingers crossed as we hope that ‘Newton' does make it to the Oscar nominations and maybe, even manages to win.
  9. Shoulder days are incomplete without lateral raises. It's a staple after shoulder pressing exercise. There is no doubt this exercise deserves to be a staple because of its key contributions to building that 3D shoulder look. In this piece, I will be comparing the two common variations of lateral raises- lateral raises with dumbbells versus lateral raises with cable pulley. Which is the best bet? Let's find out. Lateral Raises For Boulder Shoulders Joint Action: Elbows abduction Primary muscle: Medial/Lateral deltoids © Bodybuilding Lateral raises are an isolation movement used to target the lateral head of the deltoid muscle. The prime function of this muscle is to laterally abduct the arm. A well-developed lateral deltoid gives a fuller and rounded look to the shoulders. The exercise could be performed with different variations; however it is commonly performed using dumbbells. There is another variation of lateral raises, which is performed using the cable pulley which in my opinion, is superior to dumbbells. Below is the key difference between both the variations. Lateral Raises With Dumbbells Vs Lateral Raises With Cable Pulley © YouTube Lateral raises with dumbbells are performed either in a standing or a sitting position. By keeping the elbows on the lateral sides (around side pockets of your shorts) as a starting position, it is done by raising arms sideways till it comes in line with the shoulders. Similarly, you perform lateral raises with a cable pulley with one hand at a time. Here is why lateral raises with a cable is a better option Performing lateral raises with a cable pulley is always the smart choice as you can maintain continuous tension over the muscle both in the eccentric and concentric phase. On the other hand, when we perform lateral raises with dumbbells, the tension over the medial deltoids is almost nil at the starting point or at the ending point of the eccentric phase. What Is The Benefit Of Continuous Tension? While we train any muscle, we put mechanical tension over muscle fibers that leads to micro traumas aka muscle breakdown. These micro traumas then go into a repair and recovery process, and it leads to muscle strengthening and hypertrophy. Therefore, more the tension on the muscles, the higher will be the breakdown. Hence, it works best when muscle growth is supported by correct nutrition and sleep. 3 Common Mistakes To Be Avoided During Lateral Raises 1) Do not take your arms up above your shoulders; it could lead to shoulder impingement. 2) Avoid cheat movements aka swing movements while raising the arms. Remember, it is an isolation movement where you just have to focus on the targeted muscle rather than the movement. 3) Your arms should not be raised diagonally as this activates more of anterior deltoid and the resistance gets divided between the lateral and anterior deltoid. Always keep your arms sideways throughout the movement in order to keep the tension majorly over lateral deltoids. So, the next time you hit the gym, try performing lateral raises with cables.

  10. A sexy sleek room, well-furnished floors, a bar with the most expensive scotch, a fully equipped gym facility, a mini home theatre for your private viewing, a Mediterranean style restroom; doesn't this all sound like your own mini dream mansion? Well, for most of us this would the ideal home but for a lot of B-town celebrities, these are the must-have feature in their very own vanity vans. You might wonder if a vanity van can even have so many things under one roof, but when you are Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan these things are just meant to happen. These vanity vans are way more important to them than their homes; after all, they spend most of their time in this moving pad than their mansions or apartments. One look at their vanity vans and we bet you'll be bowled over! These amazing moving homes are so magnificent and equipped with world class features, that it's hard to believe that things like these can actually exist. Here's a sneak peek into the most expensive vanity vans of Bollywood celebrities that will make you feel utterly poor. Shah Rukh Khan: © Dilip Chhabria of DC Design When it comes to the Badshah of Bollywood, one can't expect anything less than the best for him. The actor totally believes in living his life king-sized and his van is proof of that. One look inside his 14-metre-long Volvo 9 BR and you are left speechless. King Khan has always trusted DC (Dilip Chhabria) when it comes to giving his vanity van a swaggy look. His second home has everything that one could wish for. Costing a hefty 4 crores, his van has a meeting room, makeup room, a home theatre place with a 52-inch television screen and a huge game setup, gymnasium, restroom, living room, bedroom and an extra room. It is said to be the most expensive vanity van in tinsel town. Could it get any better? Ajay Devgn © Twitter His love for the automobile is no secret to anyone who knows anything about Ajay. From acting, staying in shape to customizing his personal cars, the man loves to add a touch of his persona in everything he owns. So it's not surprising that his vanity van totally describes him. As he loves to stay in shape and never skips a workout, and his van has the most amazing gym one could even think of. Customised by a Gujarat-based designer as per Ajay's taste, his van has a very different shape, consisting of 4 rooms. As he loves to eat healthy home food, he has a compact kitchen which his cook operates. Now you know what keeps Ajay healthy and fit all the time! Sanjay Dutt © Dilip Chhabria of DC Design Sanjay Dutt's vanity van is said to be inspired by Airforce 1, as it has various features resembling the airplane that carries the President of the United States. The actor apparently paid 3 crore for his 12-metre-long Volvo van. Designed by none other Dilip Chhabria, Sanjay's vanity van is very spacious with the top most features. You have an office lounge, high-tech touch screen lighting system, a bar, two 52-inch screens, computers and a gaming console too. That's just insane! Alia Bhatt © Twitter Well, we all love Alia's home that she recently gifted herself, but we totally love her cheeky vanity van too. Her van is full of chirpy vibes with a vibrant contemporary interior. While most actors go for high-tech interior designs, Alia likes to keep it simple and colourful. Designed by Amrita Mahalnakani, her van has coloured walls and you can find inspirational quotes everywhere. Now we know what keeps her so motivated all the time. Hrithik Roshan © Dilip Chhabria of DC Design His vanity van is as elegant as he is. He is a tech savvy dude and his van is equipped with high-tech interiors. Giving it an edgy look, the vehicle is mainly made of wood and glass with a monochrome combination and blue lighting. That's indeed one hell of a combination to have. There is an office, a meeting space, a bedroom, a lounge and a restroom. But what makes his vanity van different from others is the twin make-up section with are electronically controlled and can turn up to 280-degrees. It looks like this Greek god definitely loves to look at himself, all the time. Salman Khan © Twitter Wondering how Bhaijaan's vanity van looks like it does. It is quite a reflection of him. It is stylish, gigantic and said to be the most stylish van in Bollywood. There is a huge portrait of him in the van and you also have a spacious rehearsal room, where he is often seen prepping for his scenes and finalising scripts. Equipped with high-tech gadgets, there is also a spacious meeting room and a bedroom. There is also a door where even cars can drive in, with a help of a ramp. Varun Dhawan: © Twitter Within a very short period of time, Varun has already amassed a huge fan following in the industry. Varun always wanted a vanity van that made him feel at home and hence he has taken a lot of care to do up the interiors of the place. After his old van had an accident, he got a new one that he describes as the best thing ever. Vivek Oberoi: © Dilip Chhabria of DC Design It is no doubt that Dilip Chhabria is a B-town favourite. He is the mastermind behind Vivek Oberoi's vanity van which is known for its rock star vibe and look. From multiple flooring options to vibrant lighting, guest lounge, a spacious bedroom to revolving chair, makeup area and Jacuzzi, his vanity van is filled with luxury.
  11. If you have been following the standup comedy scene in India, you would know Sumit Anand. We came across a fairly recent standup gig he performed on being an engineer, working from home, and dealing with your maid when you are all of the above. Talking about his lazy routine, he confesses the most difficult part of his job is dealing with the maid. © YouTube/Sumit Anand It has its perks though: © YouTube/Sumit Anand Watch Sumit Anand talk about being lazy in a world where everybody is running to finish first. Since you already have your headphones out, you cannot not watch this hilarious gig by Abhishek Upmanyu on breakups and respecting your elders. We all have that one friend who brings up his breakup in every conversation: © YouTube/Abhishek Upmanyu You can't miss his trademark ‘masooda' joke! If you have watched his live gigs, you'd know the ‘masooda' joke is the highlight of many a show. A rather uncommon joke about gums, it's even more hilarious with Upmanyu's live antics. Say "I got ‘em nice masoodas" in the comments section below if anyone has ever commented on your erm…masoodas.
  12. Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence may be receiving mixed reviews for her latest release ‘Mother!' directed by Darren Aronofsky, but one can't help praise Lawrence's commendable performance as a woman whose tranquil life is turned upside down when a mysterious couple comes to stay at their house; in this psychological horror movie. Well, it seems that movie was just a glimpse of how versatile an actor Jennifer is and possibly a sneak peek into the various challenging roles she will be taking up in her upcoming movies. The trailer of Jennifer's next movie ‘Red Sparrow' was recently released by 20th Century Fox and our jaws actually dropped on the floor when we realized how twisted and intense the movie is going to be. © 20th Century Fox Fulfilling the fanciful wish (of playing James Bond's counterpart) of every fan out there, Lawrence will be seen as a dangerously seductive Russian ballerina-turned-assassin, who uses her body and mind as weapons to kill the enemies. She looks striking as a cold-blooded killer who does not think twice before seducing and manipulating anyone, only to kill them eventually. In fact, her straight face and gawking eyes are reasons enough for anyone to fall for her charm. However, things turn wary when she falls for a CIA officer, played by Joel Edgerton. With ‘Red Sparrow', Lawrence is reuniting with director Francis Lawrence, who has earlier worked with her in ‘The Hunger Games' series. The movie is slated to release on March 2, 2018 and also stars Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker, Charlotte Rampling, and Matthias Schoenaerts. ‘The Hunger Games' actress Jennifer Lawrence has been extremely busy and tied up with her work and we don't need any proof of her busy schedule, because the release of her last film ‘Mother!' and the trailer of the upcoming movie ‘Red Sparrow', speak volumes of the hard work she has been doing throughout the year. One might think that when does she take a break? Well, guess what she might be taking one now, of two years. Reportedly, the actress plans to take a long break from acting. According to a report in CBS News, when she was asked by Savannah Guthrie on the ‘Today' show about whether she is taking any break, she said “I'm taking one. I don't have anything set for two years.” The actor is currently busy with the promotions of Darren Aronofsky's ‘Mother!' and is gearing up for her upcoming releases – ‘Red Sparrow', and ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix'.
  13. You there, with that pertinent ‘what could have been' in your mind. Yes, I am talking to you. You, there believing your past messed you up, shattered your hope and left you dwindling between an insignificant present and a battered future, this message is for you. (c) Thinkstock This little hope note comes with much to be said about letting your past be your teacher and guiding you towards a great learning from it. Learning to let go, learning to build the hope you think you have lost along the way. There is much to be said about holding on, hoping the loose ends would suddenly reunite and meet you with abundant fervour to carry on with the life you've have been living. But, here's the downright truth; things change, they meander and words get lost in translation and you have to let go one day. The person or the situation you've been dealing with may not seem malleable or maybe feel far from your grasp. That's when you wish for hope and pick up those pieces and decorate your future with nothing but sheer hopefulness. When you let go of something that is consuming, you're choosing to rule your future the way you want it to be ruled. When you choose to let go, you're choosing the cards of this life, play out on your open palm. When you let go, you realise you're in charge of any given situation and nothing can deter your spirit or cloud your judgement hence. You allow your past to lead you and to embrace what is left and sieve out what was never meant to be. Do you fathom the amount of power you have thereon, to carve your destiny? You learn that people will disappoint you, even if they do inadvertently, leave you to suffer alone and not be there when you're counting on them the most but none of that should dictate what you make of this learning, where you go from hereafter and what you do to make a remarkable future for yourself. (c) Thinkstock Letting go is a strong healing process. It strengthens your personality and seams the fabric that fell apart when you fell apart. When you eventually let go, you decide the past should remain in the realms of untouchability and you gather the harshest experiences from it to guard your exterior and your inner core. You show more resilience and less resentment and you protrude ample patience to become the most stable person, from the experience. You're the purest, most powerful healing tool, only because you realise the hurt you've chewed on for so long and you've realised simultaneously that it's indeed time to let go. You give yourself time to surprise you, teach you and heal you all at once and you willingly shed the gravity of the heaviness that's been holding you back for so long. (c) Thinkstock So, my friend, instead of wondering over the many ‘what could have been', ‘the maybes or even the ‘what should have been', give your self an astounding amount of hope and you'll sail through your journey, with grace and self healing. Give yourself the freedom to end things that are detrimental to you, walk away from situations that are only bringing you down, give yourself time to grow and turn that ‘what could have been' into ‘what should be' and the future will look back at you, with nothing but open arms. Time is a beautiful gift, use it wisely. In the time you have to heal, heal with maturity, self love and abundance. Don't stop analysing where you are or how you got here, just stop putting yourself down just because your past was not kind to you. (c) Thinkstock Hope is what runs the world today and if you conjure enough of it, you'll see your whole life pan out as beautifully as you want it to. Here's wishing you lots of hope, to last you through a lifetime, you brave warrior!
  14. If you're in a long term relationship, more often than ever, inevitably, you're bound to face a huge plausibility of getting knocked up. It's just something you can't avoid like vegetarian Tuesdays or a bad cold perhaps. Even if you're not in a long term relationship, most couples risk a possibility of doing it without protection, to heighten pleasure and end up with some tough decisions in hand. It's quite taxing for a woman, both physically and emotionally to go through an unplanned pregnancy, especially if the decision is wavering towards an abortion. So men, if your woman is pregnant and you both unanimously decide on an abortion, it's imperative you show her all the love and support you can muster. We understand it's a tough time for you too but it only becomes better if you make your partner feel a bit more at ease and understand what she's going through. Stress On How You Understand What She's Going Through If you know there is an abortion coming up, you have to mentally gear up and be prepared. By the time your partner finds out she's pregnant, her body is already changing, making room for the foetus to develop. She'll probably be moody and nauseous and may undergo short term depression, trying to handle the eventuality of the situation. Just be there for her and assure her you understand what she's going through. Sometimes just your words will get her by and at the end of the day make you feel better too. (c) Thinkstock Don't Be Too Hard On Yourself It's easy to blame each other for being callous in bed. Just remember mistakes happen all the time and sometimes they're beyond anyone's control or manifestations. Don't be too hard on yourself or your partner and deal with the situation tactfully instead. (c) Thinkstock Sex Might Take A Back Seat Be affectionate towards her but remember she may not be sexual at this point in time as she may connect sex with this difficult situation. Her sex drive might be at the lowest, so don't feel rejected if she withdraws from you physically. Instead, initiate physical contact through lots of hugs and cuddles. (c) Thinkstock Post Abortion Care Is Imperative For Both Your Well Beings Definitely go over the after-care manual. Abortion brings about a lot of pain both emotionally and physically and healing can take time. Cramps and unusual emotional outbursts are common, as for some women, the loss can be unbearable in the beginning. You can probably make it easier for your woman by making sure she's taking her post procedure medication. Shower her with oodles of affection. Pro Tip: Bring her a heating pad and you get a dozen brownie points. (c) Thinkstock Talk About It As Much As You Can Communication is a great tool to overcome any difficulty in a relationship. The more you talk about the situation at hand, the more comfortable you feel about it, considering the mutual support and interest you both show in dealing with the situation. Have an open honest conversation about what should be done and how best to handle the dilemma. (c) Thinkstock Once you cross over to the other side, she will always be grateful for your presence in her life and count on you to be there for her, always. After all, you did help her through her toughest time.
  15. This music festival season just keeps getting bigger and better as the biggest festivals in the country have decided to just keep giving and giving. Now, while this one is just a rumour in the air at the moment, we secretly hope it's the truest rumour that could ever be true! © Billboard Clean Bandit is rumoured to be coming down to India this December to perform at the Sunburn Festival, in its 11th edition! The hitmakers of tracks, like Rather Be and Rockabye could very well grace the homegrounds in Pune and give their fans something never to miss! Clean Bandit are a British electronic music group formed in Cambridge in 2008. The band consists of Grace Chatto, and brothers, Jack and Luke Patterson. Their 2011 single "Mozart's House" reached number 17 on the UK Singles Chart when re-released in 2013. In January 2014, they scored their first UK chart topping single with "Rather Be", a collaboration with Jess Glynne, featuring elements of both classical and dance music. They also reached number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100. In 2015, "Rather Be" won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. Their 2016 single "Rockabye", which features rapper Sean Paul and singer Anne-Marie, became their second number-one hit in the UK, becoming the Christmas number one single for 2016 in its seventh consecutive week at number one. The song became an international chart topper for the band, and also charted at number 9 in the US. Clean Bandit have sold over 13 million singles and 1.6 million albums worldwide. © Billboard On 17 March 2017, the trio released "Symphony", a collaboration with Swedish singer Zara Larsson. They gave their first live performance of the song on The Voice UK on 18 March 2017. As of late April 2017, the band have recently been in the studio with Sam Smith working on a "comeback single". On 23 June the band released the studio version of "Disconnect" featuring Marina and the Diamonds. © BBC UK Sunburn, in its eleventh edition has also roped in global electronic phenomenon, DJ Snake, as well as the ever popular and sensational Martin Garrix—who will also be seen headlining at the Time Out 72 Music Fest earlier that very month—to headline at the festival this season. Needless to say, sunburn will be on fire this December! And we're secretly keeping our fingers and toes crossed that this one is true because it will really change things up, musically. And that's not all, festival goers are going to have a bloody tough time trying to figure out which gigs and festivals to attend. The struggle is going to be very real! And remember, if this turns out to be true, you heard it here, first!
