  2. Most countries across the world are struggling to secure enough vaccines for their population and in India, we are facing the opposite problem- plenty of shots but people are not willing to take them. Recently, Dr. K K Aggarwal (President at Confederation of Medical Associations of Asia) was caught on live TV getting scolded by his wife for getting vaccine alone without informing her. Check out the video here- Doctor KK Agarwal got himself vaccinated without his wife. Note to self : don't ever pick-up phone while you are live on tv :) #forwarded. — Tarun Shukla (@shukla_tarun) January 27, 2021 In the video, you can see Dr. KK Aggarwal’s wife calling him and asking him that whether or not he went to get vaccinated. To which he said, that he went to ask when can they all get the Coronavirus vaccine, but as there was no crowd, he got the shot then only. His wife started scolding him and said, “Bohot hee ajeeb ho tum, why wouldn’t you take me with you.” Dr. KK Aggarwal then responded that he will take his wife on Monday on Live TV. And then later, his wife was heard saying, “abhi live aake, tumhaari aisi ki taisi karti hun.” Now, we all know only wives can scream at their husbands like this and this hilarious video has gone viral on the internet and has been re-shared many times. So, here’s what people on the internet have to say about it- Kahani ghar-ghar ki! — KBS Sidhu (@kbssidhu1961) January 27, 2021 Bhai woh pata karne gaye they !!! 🤣🤣 — Tikitaka13 (@Tikitaka131) January 27, 2021 Bahut badhiya — Soumya (@bytesofnews) January 27, 2021 Haaaaa haaaaa...... — Teena Thacker (@Teensthack) January 27, 2021Aao tumhari aisi ki taisi karti hu.

Story of every house. — VigilantEyes (@WomanSci) January 27, 2021 The video has over 93.3K views on Twitter and around 1.2K re-tweets and it clearly deserves more. Many healthcare workers in India are hesitating because of safety concerns over a vaccine that hasn’t undergone its phase three trials yet. As of Monday, only 56% of people eligible to get the shots have decided to take the vaccine in a country where we are facing the world’s second-worst Covid-19 outbreak. What do you think?

  3. John Abraham has a lot on his plate right now with upcoming projects in the new year. Last year amid the pandemic, most actors, like the rest of us were cooped up inside their houses and respecting the coronavirus lockdown regulations. This year, now that most industries have started resuming were, even Bollywood has almost returned back to what the pre-pandemic world looked like. © Viral Bhayani John Abraham, who has previously worked on great films like Batla House, Romeo Akbar Walter, and Satyameva Jayate, will now be working on the second instalment of Satyameva Jayate, Ek Villian 2, Mumbai Saga, and Attack. Coincidentally, all of the films listed above are scheduled to release next year, and this is perhaps why John has a relatively busy schedule right now. © Viral Bhayani The 47-year-old actor is rarely spotted outside, and when he's seen, it's either for his regular bike rides or on his commute for his film shoot location or to the gym to work out. John has always had a passion for biking and also has a number of collectable models in his collection at his house. However, with a bike collection, one also needs to equip the closet with biking gear that works best to complement the bike and is comfortable amid biking. John Abraham has also worked on building a biking closet which he seldom uses. However, in a recent public appearance, he was seen in his biking gear. Take a look at his outfit here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani John was seen wearing a solid black sweatshirt with a pair of crisp jeans that had multiple seams, he also wore a pair of extremely long biking boots. While biking boots are usually characterised by a heavy leather boot worn by motorcyclists, they typically have one or more buckles and have a relatively sturdy exterior. Usually, John is seen in a casual outfit with a slide-on pair, this outfit was definitely a breath of fresh air and different from his signature look. View the full article
  4. Tencent, the world’s gaming juggernaut is looking at a billion-dollar acquisition of various U.S-based companies including giants like Take Two Interactive, EA and various other companies. According to a report by TMT Finance spotted by TweakTown, Tencent is currently raising billions to buy out a new gaming company. Insiders believe the Chinese giant is looking to force a hostile takeover of the aforementioned studios. © Rockstar To put things into perspective, Take Two Interactive makes games like Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands 3 amongst several properties that rake in billions in revenue. The other company that is being speculated for a takeover is Electronic Arts (EA) which makes games like FIFA, the Battlefield series and other games from franchises like Star Wars. A potential takeover of either of the two companies could result in beloved franchises under the Tencent Gaming umbrella. © Electronic Arts Sources say the most likely scenario sees Tencent buying a South Korean developer at the moment. Some of the companies like NetMarble, Nexon and others. Tencent already is the third biggest shareholder in South Korea’s biggest mobile game maker NetMarble. Tencent is already a majority stakeholder (93%) in major U.S. gaming companies like ‘Riot Games’; who are the makers of games like League of Legends and Valorant. Tencent has also invested in companies like Epic Games (Fortnight & Epic Games Store), Bluehole (PUBG), Ubisoft (Assassin’s Creed), Activision Blizzard (Call of Duty, World of Warcraft), and Grinding Gear Games (Path of Exile). © Reuters Tencent’s investment in and ownership of some of the biggest gaming companies resulted in scrutiny from U.S. National Security last year. The Committee on Foreign Investments in the U.S. asked the aforementioned companies about their security protocols in handling Americans’ personal data. India also banned games owned and/or developed by Tencent including PUBG Mobile, Arena Of Valor and others due to national security concerns last September. It is possible that the acquisition of rumoured studios could lead to the ban of popular games like GTA or FIFA in India if it comes to fruition. The acquisition could be bad news for Indian gamers as popular games like GTA or FIFA could get banned by Indian authorities if Tencent games decides to purchase Take Two Interactive or Electronic Arts. It is worth pointing out that this news is pure speculation at the moment, however it is hard to ignore Tencent gobbling up gaming studios aggressively in the past few years. Tencent has not confirmed the validity of these rumours nor have they delivered a statement on the matter denying it. Source: TMT Finance via TweakTown View the full article
  5. Rishabh Pant, the 23-year-old marvel, did the unthinkable when he played an undefeated 89-run innings to help the Indian cricket team defeat Australia at the Brisbane Cricket Ground during the final Test of the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, while shattering the hosts’ 33-year-old record of not losing a match at the Gabba. While on his way to achieving greatness, Pant also helped the Men in Blue bag the series for a second consecutive time after they’d won the series on Australian turf back in 2018-19 for the very first time in Indian cricket history. View this post on Instagram In an interview with Hindustan Times, Pant spoke in detail about the mentality with which he’d stepped on the Gabba pitch on the final day of the match and played the greatest knock of his international career. “From when I walked out to bat in Brisbane, it was already in my head that we had to win the match. I never gave a second thought for a draw.” “I was trying to keep us, as a team, in the game for as long as possible. Puji bhai and I had short targets in mind – 15-20 runs here and there and play till the end of the session and things like that,” he added. View this post on Instagram “Right at the end, when only 30-40 runs were left, they gave me permission to go for the target. But before that, I was doing whatever I could to keep us in the chase,” Pant said. One of the biggest upsets for the young cricketer out of the series was missing out on a well deserved century during the second innings of the Sydney Test. Pant was batting at 97 when he gave up his wicket to Nathon Lyon. Pant is in trouble! A Pat Cummins rocket has struck him hard on the elbow Watch Day 3 #AUSvIND on Fox Cricket or Kayo: Live blog: Match Centre: — Fox Cricket (@FoxCricket) January 9, 2021 “Gaadi ka engine hota hai na. Start karo toh thoda agar 5-10 kilometre chalta hai, phir uske baad smooth ho jata hai (Imagine the unused engine of a car. You have to drive it for a few kilometres before it smoothens out),” the southpaw explained his innings which started out slowly (Pant had made just five runs in the first 33 deliveries) owing to the elbow injury he had endured in the first innings of the third Test and the pressure of playing on the final day of the match. Reliving the moment he tried to get his ton with a hero shot which ended up going into the hands of Pat Cummins, Pant said: “I thought the ball was there to hit. I still think so, even now.” “Yes, I mistimed it and didn’t get a hundred. But I am going to try the same shot if that ball is bowled again at me. That’s how I play and that’s what I think,” he added. The Lyon roars! The dangerous Pant is gone and there's another twist in this cracking match! @hcltech | #AUSvIND — (@cricketcomau) January 11, 2021 “Every time you hit the ball in the air, you are taking your chances. So why not try for six runs? That’s what I think… If you’re trying to hit a six, like me, I know that sixes only fall outside the ropes and outside the ropes there are no fielders. So if you have done everything right, there is no problem,” the daring cricket spoke. View the full article
  6. Rohit Sharma may not be a horophile, but boy does he know how to pick his watches. Like all cricketers, he too has a taste for some wonderful timepieces. © Rohit Sharma Hardik Pandya has some really cool and super expensive pieces from Patek Philippe. Virat Kohli has an amazing collection of Rolexes. KL Rahul, seems to be a fan of Audemars Piguet. Rohit, who is a massive fan of pieces from Hublot, actually seems to love classics, across all brands. © Viral Bhayani Very recently, Rohit Sharma was spotted in Mumbai wearing a timepiece from Rolex that will surely go down as a classic, simply because how difficult it is to get one’s hands on it right now. © Viral Bhayani But first, let’s have a look at his outfit. Rohit was seen wearing a rather understated outfit, with a very basic T-shirt, and a pair of steel-grey coloured shorts. The pair of Adidas originals sneakers that he paired with his ensemble actually sits harmoniously. © Viral Bhayani We also like the fact that he chose to go for a light coloured mask, and a cool baseball cap to tie it all together. © Viral Bhayani His watch though had to be the highlight of his ensemble. He is seen here with a Sky-Dweller from Rolex. However, the piece that he is wearing is not just any regular Sky-Dweller. © Viral Bhayani The one the Rohit is wearing has the optional black dial, called the Bright Black. Normally, the Sky-Dweller comes with a blue or a white face. Given that Rohit’s watch has this neat little customisation, it already is a rarity. © Rolex Then there is the fact that the Sky-Dweller is an extremely collectable piece, that horophiles across the world are desperately trying to get their hands on. Like most Rolex pieces with a perpetual movement, this watch too has an insane waiting list. © Rolex Although the watch retails for Rs 10.67 Lakhs, including the fluted bezel and the oyster bracelet, getting your hands on one with a black dial is pretty tough. If you are a fan of Rolex, you will find it much easier to get your hands on a Sky-Dweller with a blue face. © Rolex All in all, that’s a really great piece that Rohit has there. It certainly is a future classic. © Viral Bhayani Would you like to know what other watches does Rohit Sharma own? Do let us know in the comments below. View the full article

  9. In another bizarre episode of ‘this happens only in India’, a couple allegedly murdered their two daughters. Recently, V Padmaja, principal of Masterminds IIT Talent School in Madanapalli town of Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh, was brought in for a Coronavirus test to the Taluk hospital after she allegedly murdered her two daughters. After she refused to get tested for Coronavirus, she said, “Corona did not come from China… it came from Shiva. I am Shiva and corona will be gone by March.” © BCCL She said this to the medical staff who attempted to get a nasal swab for an RT-PCR test. Padmaja and her husband Dr. V Purushotham Naidu, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Vice-Principal at the Government Degree College in Madanapalli, have now been arrested for allegedly bludgeoning their two daughters. They killed their two daughters Alekhya (25 years old) and Sai Divya (22 years old) to death with dumbbells at their home. On Tuesday evening, the couple was presented in front of a civil judge and the couple walked in calmly and will now be kept in Judicial custody for 14 days. The police tried to piece the story together from the statements given by the couple and also from people who know them. They also collected evidence from the crime scene that led to the murders of their two daughters. © BCCL DSP of Madanapalli taluk, Ravi Manohar Achari, said, “It seems like the whole family was involved in some extreme religious belief. The deaths are a result of this.” The policeman who was involved in the custody of the couple after their arrest said that they were in it together. The couple had moved into the plush, three-storey house in August last year and surrounded their house with paraphernalia such as lemons and aloe vera linked to religious ceremonies. A police official said, “The parents had no injuries on them but seemed to be in a trance, saying the girls will return.” However, people who knew them said that it’s hard to believe that the couple were involved in occult practices or have murdered their daughters. © Unsplash A worker at the Masterminds school said, “I have known the principal of the Masterminds school for over 25 years. I cannot believe she could have done this.” A police official said, “It seems one of the girls told the parents that they can only get rid of evil by killing them (the daughters), but that they would not die. We have to verify if anyone in the family received treatment for mental illness.” What do you think of this? Let us know in the comments section below! View the full article
  10. Kangana Ranaut is known for voicing her opinions and never mincing her words. She has been vocal about what she thinks and expresses it via tweets on Twitter on serious matters. She once again took to her Twitter to question Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh and actress Priyanka Chopra. For the unversed, India celebrated its 72nd Republic Day, and farmers who were holding a peaceful protest for over two months and waited for the government to repeal the farm laws suddenly resorted to violence. The farmers were only supposed to do a tractor rally in New Delhi on Republic Day as a sign of their unity and how they wanted the government to accept their terms. View this post on Instagram Instead, things got out of hand and violence took place at many locations in Delhi. The farmers were seen clashing with the police personnel in several parts of the national capital. Also, soon after videos and photos of farmers hoisting their flag at Red Fort surfaced on the internet, Kangana Ranaut took to Twitter and wrote, “You need to explain this @diljitdosanjh @priyankachopra Whole world is laughing at us today, yahi chahiye tha na tum logon ko!!!! (This is what you wanted, right?) Congratulations."

She wrote, “Six brands canceled contracts with me some were already signed some were closing n said I called Farmer terrorists so they can’t have me as an ambassador. Today I want to say each and every Indian who is supporting these riots is also a terrorist including anti-national brands.” Six brands cancelled contracts with me some were already signed some were closing n said I called Farmer terrorists so they can’t have me as an ambassador.

  12. The battle of the two noise cancellation headphones is something we’ve been looking forward to as much as you. The two headphones are known for being amongst the best noise cancellation headphones and we couldn’t resist pitting both of them against each other. We will be evaluating both headphones in terms of design, sound, value and features to determine which one is the best headphone to purchase in 2021. Here’s our comparison of the AirPods Max and the Sony WH- 1000XM4 that might interest audiophiles and sound enthusiasts: 1. Design © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to the design, Apple knows how to craft premium devices and the AirPods Max have got the same treatment as well. Sony’s WH-1000XM4 is by no means basic but in comparison to the AirPods Max, it does lack that premium feel. Having said that, due to the WH-1000XM4’s plastic body, it is fairly lighter and easier to use than the AirPods Max. Both headphones offer great functionality as well, however we prefer Apple’s Digital Crown for volume control and the dedicated noise cancellation button more. Overall, AirPods Max’s design is much more convenient and feels great to use. Winner: AirPods Max 2. Sound Customisations © Apple and Sony When it comes to sound quality, both headphones offer great performance, highly controlled mids and well-tuned drivers. Having said that, the Sony WH- 1000XM4 offers more customisations via its proprietary app and adjust the sound to your liking. The AirPods Max, however does not offer any solution and instead forces users to choose from presets that can be found in the audio settings. In this department, the WH-1000XM4 has a clear edge over the AirPods Max until Apple lets users fine-tune different frequencies according to their liking. Apple does have something called ‘Adaptive EQ,’ however it isn’t as comprehensive as Sony’s EQ levering feature within its app. Winner: Sony WH-1000XM4 3. Sound Quality © MensXP The AirPods Max and WH-1000XM4 both come from companies who have a long history with audio products. There’s no doubt that both headphones offer one of the best sounding experiences you can get from a wireless over-the-ear headphone. If I had to choose between the two, I won’t be able to as both sound incredible. You can read more about the WH-1000XM4 and the AirPods Max on our website where we go in more detail. That said, Apple has a slight edge over the Sony WH-1000XM4’s thanks to its ‘Spatial Audio’ feature. Winner: Draw 4. Noise Cancellation © Apple Sony has been at the forefront of noise-cancellation technology for the past few years and we can finally see Apple catching up to the competition with the AirPods Max. Having said that, we do prefer Apple’s easy to use noise cancellation mode by simply tapping on a button to switch between transparency mode and noise cancellation. On the Sony WH-1000XM4s, one has to use the touch sensor to activate or deactivate the ANC feature which is not as intuitive as Apple’s offering. Winner: AirPods Max 5. Accessories © Sony Both the Sony WH-1000XM4 and the AirPods Max come with accessories, however the former offers a more robust set of add-ons. The AirPods Max only come with a case that doesn’t even protect the headphones from drop damage. In the case of the Sony WH-1000XM4, the headphones come with a proper carry case that protects it from fall damage, scratches and other types of damage it may experience in a carry bag. Apart from the case, the WH-1000XM4s also give other accessories such as an AUX-in cable and a travel adapter which you can plug into an Airplane’s audio system as well. The AirPods Max just comes with a charging cable that you can’t even connect with the iPhone to listen to music if the battery runs out. You will need to purchase a separate 3.5mm to USB-C cable or dongle to listen to music with the iPhone in case you run out of battery. Winner: Sony WH-1000XM4 6. Value and Affordability © Youtube_Marc Taraz Steiner The AirPods Max retails in India for Rs 59,990 whereas the Sony WH-1000XM4 retail in India for Rs 24,990. The difference between the two is massive and if you look at which headphones offer more value for money, it has to be the Sony WH-1000XM4. They come with more accessories, are compatible with both iOS and Android devices and offers proper protection with a solid carrying case. If you're looking at sound quality for the price, the WH-1000XM4 wins on affordability. Winner: Sony WH-1000XM4 View the full article

  14. The Indian cricket team is one of the biggest entities our country is extremely proud of. Over the years, the Men in Blue have not only showed that they were among the best in international cricket but have also achieved some unbelievable milestones which have made the nation and their people proud. On the 72nd Republic Day, here are the four most memorable victory laps taken by the Indian cricket team: World Cup (2011) - Wankhede The moment which the legendary Sachin Tendulkar calls “the most beautiful moment of his cricketing life” came at the end of India’s 2011 World Cup campaign at home. Ending a 28-year drought, the Men in Blue were once again world champions and immortalised a fully loaded squad led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The ‘Master Blaster’ was throned on the shoulders of his teammates, with the tricolour in his hands and ultimate happiness on his face. India Wins Border-Gavaskar Trophy (2020-21) - Brisbane A broken Team India not only won the Test series 2-1 but also managed to defeat the Australians at the ‘Gabba Fortress’, the Brisbane Cricket Ground where the hosts had not lost a single Test match in the last 33 years. The greatest scenes could be seen when skipper Ajinkya Rahane handed over the flag to Rishabh Pant, the man who turned the series around with one of the greatest red-ball innings of all time. India Wins T20 World Cup (2007) - Johannesburg At the end of a nail-biting final over against Pakistan to decide the first ever T20 World Cup champion, Team India, once again led by MS Dhoni, had the fans erupt in deafening ecstasy when they began their victory lap at the Wanderers.

  15. Entertainment is one of the most hyped industries in our country. Bollywood actors are treated as gods in India as well as across the world. So the actors usually venture into almost anything -- from politics to singing to anything that we can think of. The actors own fashion brands to restaurants and sometimes also think that they can sing. However, singing cannot be everyone’s cup of tea. So, here are five actors who thought they could sing but turned out to be the worst singers ever. Salman Khan Sallu bhai sang the song ‘Main Hoon Hero Tera’ for the film Hero and honestly the song was a huge flop. It only got views due to Salman Khan’s popularity. The song was released with a behind the scenes video of Sallu Bhai singing the song and it was majorly dedicated to the craft of singing. Also, the song was auto-tuned which is why we can say that it didn’t do much for the audience. Priyanka Chopra A lot of people consider Priyanka Chopra as a good singer but honestly, her songs ‘In My City’ and ‘Exotic’ were not that great. Both the songs were marketed as Priyanka Chopra’s transformation into a global superstar which did work for them but it was majorly all publicity. If you look at the song’s lyrics they weren’t that great either. Alia Bhatt Alia Bhatt is a decent singer and she sang this song ‘Sooha Saaha’ for her film Highway which was good. But otherwise, there is this video of her performing at the IIFA Awards wherein she tried to rap in Hindi and it was just funny. Akshay Kumar Now, personally, the lyrics of this song aren’t bad but this song isn’t a song that we’d prefer listening to now. Also, Akshay Kumar is literally shouting in the song rather than singing which isn’t how it should be. A better singer could have done justice to the song. Sonakshi Sinha Sonakshi Sinha sang a song ‘Ishqoholic’ and if you don’t remember when this happened then we don’t really blame you. This song just had crass lyrics and disappointed us all and we hope that it stopped existing. View the full article
