  3. Bigg Boss has undoubtedly become one of the most popular reality TV shows on Indian television over the years. This year, the hit TV show has made a comeback with its 14th season this October. © Colors According to a report, Salman Khan became the highest-paid TV show host, with a fee of Rs 16 crore per episode. However, the actor has now taken a pay cut to accommodate the fees of other members of the show owing to the COVID-19 situation. During the launch event of the latest season, Salman said, “I am more than happy to cut it down so everyone else can get paid.” © Colors While you already know how much Salman is making per episode, ever wondered how much do the contestants earn on the show? Former Bigg Boss winners, Sidharth Shukla, Gauhar Khan and Hina Khan are on this season too for a two-week stint. The seniors, who are now on their way out, are the highest-paid “temporary” contestants on the show. gauhar khan image While Sidharth tops the chart with the whopping earning of Rs 32 lakh per week, Hina Khan and Gauhar Khan follow with Rs 25 and 20 lakh per week, respectively. © Colors Let’s take a look at how much the other permanent contestants of the show are earning week-by-week on Bigg Boss 14: The biggest attraction of this season’s contestants are the married couple, Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla. Extremely popular among the audiences for her TV serial roles, Dilaik is the highest-paid contestant on the show. © BCCL She takes home a fancy cheque of Rs 5 lakh, per week. On the other hand, her husband and model Abhinav Shukla holds the 6th position on the list, by earning Rs 1.5 lakh per week. © Colors Second on the list is none other than popular TV serial face Jasmin Bhasin, as she is all set to take home Rs 3 lakh per week for the time she spends on the show. © Instagram The position for the third highest-paid contestants on Bigg Boss is shared by Sara Gurpal – an actress and singer – and TV actor Nishant Singh Malkani with Rs 2 lakh per week. Malkani, interestingly, is also the highest-paid male contestant on the show. Here’s a break-up of how much the rest of the contestants on Bigg Boss 14 are getting paid per week: 1.

  4. Smartphones were probably the most bought product during the Festive season sale on online e-commerce websites like Flipkart and Amazon. Mi India just announced that the company sold 5 million or 50 lakh smartphones during the Great Indian Shopping Festival on Amazon and The Big Billion Days on Flipkart. Mi India sold a considerable number of smartphones on its website mi.com as well, however specific numbers associated with each website was not detailed. © Reuters Raghu Reddy, Chief Business Officer, Mi India said about the achievement, “We are overwhelmed with the response and support we’ve got from consumers and Mi fans. It's incredible to see retailers and partners coming together, putting their best foot forward during these unprecedented times. This festive season was the biggest shopping season for us. We are especially grateful towards our retail family that has come together this season to help us achieve this milestone. The 5 million marks is a testimony of our consumers' trust in our products. To the best of our knowledge, no other brand has ever achieved this before. We, at Mi India, aim to keep delivering the highest quality products at honest prices.” © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Mi India was offering some incredible and attractive offers for smartphones across all categories. Notably, Mi 10, the company’s most expensive and premium device was available starting at INR 44,999 during the sale. Similarly, some of the company’s most popular devices i.e. the Note series were available at a discount of Rs 1000 with a further discount of Rs 1500 via bank cashback offers. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Yesterday we reported that both Amazon and Flipkart are expected to sell 1.5 crore smartphones this festive season and it seems like Mi India has already kick started that campaign for everyone involved with 50 lakh smartphone sales already. A recent report by Canalys said Xiaomi is still the leading smartphone brand in the country and has achieved a majority of 26.1% market share of India’s smartphone industry in Q3 2020. The company also shipped 13.1 million units within the same quarter, highest amongst all smartphone brands in the country. View the full article
  5. Bollywood songs from the 2000s are some of the best songs that Hindi cinema has ever given us. These songs have made us feel alive and some of them have also been part of long drives and house parties. These songs will instantly remind you of the fabulous time back then and will make you want to go back in time. The hook steps of these songs have been etched in our hearts forever and we will never forget them. However, some of these songs were our favorites but now we have completely forgotten them. So, here is a list of 5 such Bollywood songs from the 2000s that we forgot about, which used to be our favorite when they had released. Pappu Can’t Dance Sala Almost all of us have enjoyed dancing to this song and, not only the song, the film also did great at the box office. The film starred Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza in the lead roles and revolved around how two best friends fell in love with each other. Mitwa The song from the film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna was a hit at that time and now that you have been reminded about this song, you’d definitely want to listen to it once. The film starred Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta and Abhishek Bachchan in prominent roles. Ab To Forever The film starred Rani Mukherji and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles and both of them looked stunning in the film. A lot of women got a similar haircut that Rani Mukherji donned in the film and also this song became one of the superhits of that time. It’s The Time To Disco If you don’t know the hook-step to this song, then you’re clearly missing out on some fun in your life. Most of us have given solo performances in front of the mirror on this song. The film Kal Ho Na Ho gave us some great songs but this one stood out and made it to the list of our favourites. Woh Ajnabee This song had extraordinarily catchy lyrics and if we listen to this song today, many of us will still know the lyrics. The song is from the film The Train starring Emran Hashmi, Geeta Basra and Sayali Bhagat in prominent roles. View the full article
  6. It hasn’t even been a week but we’re already hearing about the OnePlus 9 and when it is expected to launch next year. Usually, OnePlus reserves the months April-May for the launch of their flagship smartphones, however it seems like this time around the company may move their plans ahead. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Smartphone cycles don’t seem to stop and that was evident even during the COVID-19 pandemic amidst limited production and output from factories. However, that did not stop companies from launching their latest products including the recently announced iPhone 12. Now, a report from Android Central claims that an insider source tells them that the OnePlus 9 is expected to launch a month earlier than the company’s usual launch cycle. The OnePlus 9 is being planned for a March launch in 2021 according to Android Central’s report which is a month before OnePlus' usual launch date for their phones. OnePlus is not the only company looking to move up their launch schedule as last week reports suggested even Samsung is moving up its launch schedule for the next ‘Galaxy S’ smartphone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There’s no additional information about the OnePlus 9 as of now however we can make an educated guess about the upcoming phone. Much like every other OnePlus device, we can expect the OnePlus 9 to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset which could be the Snapdragon 875. The OnePlus 9 will also use the company’s new 65W Warp Charge feature since it has now launched on the OnePlus 8T and it will be a standard feature for future OnePlus smartphones. Similarly, the OnePlus 8T also comes with a 120Hz display just like the OnePlus 8 Pro and there’s no reason why it wouldn’t make a return on the OnePlus 9. There could be a chance that the smartphone may even come with a 144Hz display on the Pro model since we’ve already seen OnePlus’ competition i.e. ASUS and Xiaomi roll out smartphones with 144Hz refresh rate displays. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla It would be prudent to point out that most of the information above is still very early to be accurate and should be taken with a pinch of salt. In terms of specifications, we’ve speculated based on OnePlus’ past launch trends and weighed in what the competition is offering in order for the company to keep up with the industry.

  7. It's Halloween time and the only type of movie anyone is allowed to watch this month is horror movies. Sorry, I don't make the rules. Every time a new horror movie comes out, we always get to hear how it's the 'scariest movie ever', and well, they rarely live up to the expectation. © Warner Bro With every scary movie marketed that way, it was time for science to decide the scariest movie ever, once and for all, and we have the results. © Broadband Choices According to “Science of Scare Project", a study conducted by Broadband Choices, we have a definite list of science-approved scary movies and it's a little unexpected. Basically, for this study, they took 50 people and hooked them up to a heart monitor. Then, they were made to watch 120 hours of the best horror movies out there. And then, everyone's heart rates were taken into account to declare the scariest of the scariest. © Broadband Choices Disclaimer - yes, 50 people is not a lot, and of course, the list is not accurate for the entire population, we get it. It's still a scientific study. So, here are the top ten movies that made people's heart rate go up by a lot, starting from the scariest: 1. Sinister © Alliance Films The movie follows a has-been true-crime writer who moves his wife and kids into a house where a family had previously been murdered. Determined to solve the mystery of the murdered family to use as a basis of his next novel, he soon realizes there's a lot more going on in the haunted house. 2. Insidious © Blumhouse Productions Another haunted house story but in this, the parents realize that their comatose son is actually possessed by some evil entities. 3. The Conjuring © Warner Bros *clap clap* Yet another movie where white people move into a sinister-looking house in the middle of nowhere and then realize it's haunted. The Perron family starts going through increasingly terrifying events and then get help from paranormal investigators. 4. Hereditary © A24 After the death of the matriarch of the Graham family, the family starts to uncover the terrifying secrets of their ancestry as they get haunted by a mysterious presence. 5. Paranormal Activity © Blumhouse Productions A couple senses that they are being haunted by a supernatural presence in their home and set up a camera to uncover the truth and document it. The found-footage approach actually makes the movie seem more authentic, thus even more terrifying. 6. It Follows © Northern Lights Films Basically, an STD, but make it haunted. A teenage girl is followed by a supernatural entity after a sexual encounter and can only get rid of it after having sex with someone else and passing it on. 7. The Conjuring 2 © Warner Bros. The sequel continues with the Warrens, the paranormal investigators from the first movie, coming out of a sabbatical and jumping continent to help out a family in the UK. After the Warrens try to help the youngest daughter who's possessed, they end up becoming the new target of the malicious spirit. 8. The Babadook © Entertainment One A monster movie, The Babadook follows a single mother dealing with her son's paranoid fears of a monster only to realize they are surrounded by a sinister presence all around. 9. The Descent © Celador Films A group of women head to a cave to explore it but soon after descending, they find strange paintings and evidence of a previous expedition, soon realizing that they are not alone. 10. The Visit © Universal Pictures Another found-footage movie, it follows two teenaged siblings going to their estranged grandparents' house to spend a week with them as their mother goes off with her boyfriend. Can't say anything else without spoiling it, but it gets real creepy real quick. So, if you have seen all the movies mentioned above, well, congratulations! you're a true horror flick connoisseur.

  8. The past couple of months have been overwhelming in terms of smartphone launches as none of the OEMs wanted to miss out on the festive shopping spree. With an influx of devices, it often gets difficult to pick and choose the ones that offer the most value for money. For Samsung, we think it was the newest entry into the M-Series, the Galaxy M51. Honestly, we didn't expect this gem of a phone to come knocking at our doors. This is one of those phones that has managed to stay with us ever since it came out. There are quite a few things we like about the Galaxy M51 but we'll be talking just the three of them here. Battery Life © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Samsung Galaxy M51 is good at many things but the battery is where it brilliantly dominates the competition. The phone packs a generous 7,000 mAh battery. It is by far the largest battery we've seen on any mainstream smartphone. Regardless of how busy the day has been for the phone, there's a good chance that you'll still end your day with enough charge left to play a few games or watch a movie or a TV show. We tried really hard to kill the battery in one day but we gave up before the phone did. The charging speed is also not too shabby considering the battery size. You get a 25W charger inside the box and it takes about 2 hours to top it up. We'd love to see a faster-charging solution for the successor more than anything else. Display © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Galaxy M51 also sports a beautiful 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O panel. It's got a tall 20:9 aspect ratio with support for FullHD+ resolution. It's a typical Samsung AMOLED panel that we've come to cherish over the years. It's a joy to look at and we certain that you'll have a great time using it, be it for gaming, watching videos, etc. It also has widevine L1 support to stream HD content on OTT platforms. There's also support for HDR, so those HDR-supported YouTube videos will look really good. It's a best in class Super AMOLED panel with great color reproduction. Performance © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Galaxy M51 is powered by the Snapdragon 730G this time instead of going for its in-house Exynos chipsets. It is backed by up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The performance of the phone is super smooth across all the day-to-day tasks. You won't encounter any lags while using the phone. Samsung's OneUI has also gotten better now and it's far from the sluggish UI were used to on older Samsung phones. You'll also have a great time gaming on this phone. The performance is solid and you won't have to worry about the battery too. The Final SayBesides the points we've mentioned above, there are plenty of other things we like about the Galaxy M51 and that's exactly why we keep coming back to it even after using so many devices that are coming out. It's a great phone and we think it's perfect for those who are looking to buy a phone under Rs 25,000. View the full article
  9. Sharad Kelkar graduated to the film industry after being a part of the television industry for a long time. Besides him impressing us in movies like Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Bhoomi with his acting prowess, we also have to shed light on the fact that he is a celebrity with fashion-forward choices. He doesn't make a lot of appearances, but when he is papped sometimes our eyes instantly go to his outfits. Another aspect of Sharad that struck us are his sneaker choices. © Viral Bhayani © Houseofbeat The shoes, in question, are called Nike Air Max 270 “Solar Red”. A lot of people assumed that these sneakers were shelved, but there came an array of styles of Air Max 720 and Air Max 270 reacts. The pair, here, has a red base layer with black woven upper with a glazed-on black overlay. The metallic swooshes add a contrasting element to the sneakers and the jet black air unit and the outsole bring more edge to the overall silhouette of the shoes. View the full article
  10. The Fast And The Furious franchise began with a basic concept of drag racing combined with highway heists and an undercover cop joining their gang as a street racer. The first couple of films were decent, if not great. Tokyo Drift was refreshing and managed to be the best film of the franchise (in my opinion) without the help of a massive actor roster but subsequently, things came crashing down to the point at which cars are parachuting on a highway and planes are running on endless runways. This list isn’t about the such stupid incidents that the scripwriters included in the film in the name of creativity. This list is about the stupid things they showed in the fancy cars that made every race fan want to bleach their eyes and stratch their brains out. The Extra Gear Shift So, can we already talk about how, no matter how fast the car is going, Vin Diesel is always able to shift one gear up when it matters the most? Is he necessarily driving on one gear lower throughout the race, in which case completely messing up his fuel consumption and risking his engine to overheat too quickly? I get that it could be the case in a quarter-mile race but not when drifting through a glacier, being chased by a freaking submarine, right? NOS Leading To Time Warp If you watch the first two films of the franchise, as soon as the racer pushes ‘the red button’ to initiate a Nitrous oxide boost, they’d show it as if the car is ready to travel faster than the speed of light and convert into a time travelling machine. Sure, the boost can make the car go faster but not in a way that’d give Marty McFly and Doc from Back To The Future a run for their money. How Long A ‘Quarter-Mile’ Race Lasts A quarter-mile is just a little more than 400 metres. With supercars that go from 0-100mph in a couple of seconds that are loaded with ‘time-traveling’ NOS, how does it take them 30 seconds or more to complete a short race on a straight road? Considering the average time for a real drag race is somewhere between 4-9 seconds, the races in the Fast & Furious franchise are hilariously long. The Glamourous Pre-Race Atmosphere The first movie of the series came in 2001 and the “street-car racing” environment showed women in ultra small skirts talking around expensive rides and “bending down” to check the fancy engines for some reason. Now this could be the avid YouTube viewer in me speaking but none of the legitimate street-racing videos that I have seen online have such overglamourised people next to the cars. Normally, there are two cars positioned side-by-side, they bet a certain amount on the race and then… race! Of course there are a bunch of enthusiasts crowding the starting line but that’s about it. The Physics This doesn’t just upset the race fans but humanity in general. Fast and the Furious cars do not obey the laws of physics one bit. Be it jumping from a platform and onto a yacht or five cars trying to hold down one car and eventually flipping high in the air and crashing into one another just because Vin Diesel’s car had more horsepower than that rest of them combined. Science? What science, eh? View the full article
  11. The Indian Premier League (IPL) has witnessed numerous players carving their own niche on the back of spectacular performances over the years. Their success didn't just earn them plaudits, but it also garnered high expectations from pundits and fans alike. Such has been their consistency that it's almost criminal to expect them to deliver the goods every time they take the field. Take AB de Villiers for instance. The South African has been one of the most influential stars in the tournament over the years. Whether he's in form or not, the target is competitive or impossible to achieve, the sight of ABD walking out on the field wielding the willow always gets us on the edge of our seats amid expectations of total carnage. Similarly, the thirteenth edition of the IPL, too, had cricket fans expecting the usual suspects to deliver big time. While many expected stars have surely delivered, the ongoing season has become more of a story of those unexpected match-winners who have not only aided their respective teams in crunch situations but also surprised everyone with their unmatched skills. Marcus Stoinis © Twitter/@IPL Arguably the most popular name on the list, Marcus Stoinis is well known for his all-round abilities on the international circuit. But, his poor stint with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) saw him finding new employers in Delhi Capitals (DC) this season. Owing to ordinary performances in RCB colours, Stoinis was not really expected to do well this season. But, the Aussie, contrary to popular perception, has been clinical for Delhi. In the very first game for Delhi, Stoinis emerged as the match-winner for his side in the 'Super Over' thriller against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). The 31-year-old scored a brilliant 21-ball 53 and then impressed everyone with his bowling figures of 2-29 to eventually bag the 'Man of the Match' award. Rahul Tewatia © Twitter/@IPL In a team that boasts of proven stars like Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, no one could have possibly imagined that Rahul Tewatia would have such an influential season for his team. The Rajasthan allrounder had already given a glimpse of his capabilities during a three-wicket spell against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) early in the tournament. But, it was the game against Punjab that really showed his class. Chasing a total of 223 runs, the likes of Samson (85) and Steve Smith (50) surely laid the foundation of their run-chase but it was Tewatia's late fireworks that sealed the deal for Rajasthan. The left-hander's herculean batting effort of 31-ball 53, including 7 sixes, against all odds allowed Rajasthan to pull off the highest successful run-chase in IPL history and emerged as the unlikeliest of heroes this season. Axar Patel © Twitter/@IPL Dropped from the team after playing just two matches, Axar Patel got a second wind this season after Amit Mishra's unexpected injury. Since then, the Delhi allrounder has not only been impressive with both bat and ball, but he has become a key contributor in the rampant run of his team this season. In nine matches, Axar has taken eight wickets and has been explosive with the willow at the end of the innings. His power-hitting was in full display during Delhi's five-wicket win over Chennai. Shikhar Dhawan's unbeaten 101 surely played a key role in Delhi's triumph, but there is no doubt that if it wasn't for Axar's 5-ball 21, which included three sixes, the Capitals wouldn't have pulled it off. Rahul Tripathi © Twitter/@IPL At a time when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were struggling with Sunil Narine's form, Rahul Tripathi grabbed the opportunity with both hands and made his position at the top his own. Tasked with the responsibility of getting KKR off to a flyer, Tripathi smoked a match-winning 81 against Chennai on a day when others failed to step up. The 29-year-old smashed eight fours and three sixes in an innings that came at a strike-rate over 158. While none of the established Kolkata stars couldn't score past 17, Rahul's 81 ensured his team reached a competitive total of 167 runs. His batting effort proved decisive as Chennai eventually fell short of the target, losing the game by 10 runs. And, Rahul bagged a well-deserved 'Man of the Match' award. T Natarajan © Twitter/@IPL In the glitz and glamour of IPL where international stars often hog the limelight, no one would have thought T Natarajan, a left-arm seamer from Salem in Tamil Nadu, would emerge as Sunrisers Hyderabad's yorker specialist. During their 15-run win over Delhi, Hyderabad had a few key contributors including the likes of Jonny Bairstow (53) and Rashid Khan (3-14). Natarajan, too, had his role to play with figures of 1-24. While his figures might not seem extraordinary, it shouldn't take anything away from the outstanding overs (14th and 18th) he bowled during Delhi's run-chase. The left-arm seamer bowled as many as 10 toe-crushing yorkers during the match which played a key role in Hyderabad's win. Though Rashid bagged the 'Man of the Match' award, it was Natarajan who ran away with plaudits from pundits and fans alike. View the full article
  12. If you have already binge watched the most riveting show on Netflix, Emily In Paris, you already know what we are about to deep dive into. Lucas Bravo, a 32-year-old French actor, has made everyone go weak in the knees, with his endearing personality on the show. For the less acquainted, Bravo is a charming chef, who is the face behind Gabriel and he happens to be a neighbour in the series who is Emily's love interest (we'll stop with the spoilers now). While we are already captivated by his dazzling personality on the show, we also couldn't miss out on his sartorial aesthetics. A quick look at Bravo's Instagram profile and you would be convinced that the man is super fashionable in real life too. Let these pictures speak for themselves! 1. Never underestimate the power of a clean-shaven face and a simple, basic outfit. Also, boots around the neck? That's a stylish move! © Instagram/Jetaimelucasbravo 2.

  13. We've heard a lot of weird and unexpected things happen in 2020. Now, we just learned about the discovery of new organs in the human skull. Yes, a team of doctors from the Netherlands stumbled upon a set of previously undiscovered organs. The doctors were said to be studying high-resolution brain scans when they found it. They say the organ was hiding inside the base of the human skull, which they say is the fourth pair of salivary glands. The glands are tucked away up where the top of the throat meets the nasal cavity. This hasn't been officially confirmed yet, but it'll be a huge discovery that would mark the first pair of new salivary glands discovered in about 300 years. This particular research is being led by the doctors at the Netherlands Cancer Institute and it looks like they're working with fairly limited data right now. It could really change the way we study the salivary glands. The other three salivary glands are right beneath our skin but this new one, which the doctors claim to have found, is tucked underneath. So they may go unnoticed unless someone's specifically looking for them. This also possibly explains why the potentially damaged glands went undiscovered all this time. © Reuters It looks like the gland is not very accessible inside the skull. Study author Dr. Wouter Vougel, a radiation oncologist at the Netherlands Cancer Center, said, "The location is not very accessible, and you need very sensitive imaging to detect it.” Source: The New York Times View the full article
  14. It's been months since not only one of the finest actors we've seen but also one of the most genuinely great people passed away and left everyone to mourn such a huge loss. Irrfan Khan's death personally affected so many people and he will always be remembered fondly. And, if the people who had never even met him were so immensely affected by his death, one can only imagine what his family felt like, have been feeling like since he passed away. © Twitter His son Babil shared a heartwarming video of his parents on Instagram and saying people are feeling emotional would be an understatement. The video shows Irrfan and his wife Sutapa singing ‘Mera Saaya Saath Hoga’ and him asking, "Mera saya ki tera saya?" View this post on InstagramMera saya ki tera saya?

  15. As cringey as some of their shows might be, we cannot ignore the fact that the Indian television industry has given us some really talented and capable actors. Some of these actors went on to have illustrious careers in movies and had some of the most iconic films under their belt. © Twitter/RK1610IsMe Even fashion and style-wise, we have had some great actors from the television industry. We take a look at 6 such actors from the 2000s, who delighted us with their performances, and style: 1. Rajeev Khandelwal © Twitter/RK1610IsMe Rajeev Khandelwal had a number of great television shows, all of whom were massively popular. Furthermore, he had a charm that most people found endearing. That, combined with his sense of style and a great ability to create some tasteful ensembles, ensured that he has a massive fan following. 2. Ronit Roy © IMDb Now, technically speaking, Ronit Roy isn’t exactly from the 2000s television industry, he had a Bollywood career much before that. However, it was the original Kasautii Zindagi Kay, that sort of revived his career and cemented his popularity among the masses. And can we just say, that Mr Bajaj, the original one, was one of the most stylish characters on Indian television for a considerable period of time? 3. Sidharth Shukla © Twitter/sidharth_shukla Sidharth was already a popular name before he made his television debut in 2008. However, the wonders that television did for his career is just incredible. Almost overnight, he became a household name, thanks to some really powerful and nuanced characters he played. Of course, his sheepish charm, and a very relatable and functional sense of style, also helped. 4. Cezanne Khan © Balaji Telefilms The main lead of Kasautii Zindagi Kay, Cezanne Khan, was all people could talk about when the show was popular. Men and women alike would follow him and keep track of his activities like crazy. For a show that was from the early 2000s, it was actually very fashionable and contemporary. 5. Rahil Azam © IMDb Remember Hatim, the fantasy show? The guy, Rahil Azam, who played the titular role, was pretty popular back in the day. Like most other people on the list, he started out as a model and was seen in a number of music videos and TV commercials, which should tell you all about his ability to dress with style. Once he made his television debut, he became immensely popular among adults and kids alike. 6. Sushant Singh Rajput © Balaji Telefilms Finally, there’s Sushant Singh Rajput. He always had an immaculate sense of style, even during his days as an actor in television soaps. Of course, over the years, his sense of style and fashion evolved immensely, and he gave us a number of tasteful and really well put together outfits. During his time at Pavitra Rishta, he had a very relatable, and functional sense of style, which resonated with a lot of people. Furthermore, he always had this charm, which people found very endearing. View the full article
  16. Apple recently launched its latest smartwatch in India and if you aren’t familiar with its predecessors, it is the best wearable ever created. While the Indian market has been flooded with fitness trackers and smartwatches, none of them can even match up to Apple’s offering. The Apple Watch Series 6 is probably the only smartwatch worth getting if you are an iPhone user or even worth switching to the Apple ecosystem for it. The Apple Watch Series 6 is a small upgrade from its predecessor, however it doesn’t mean improvements haven’t been made under the hood. It’s a little weird reviewing this product especially since it’s almost identical to the Apple Watch Series 5 but it does come with its nifty features with watchOS 7. Here’s what we think about the Apple Watch Series 6: Design The Apple Watch Series 6’s design is well the same as before. It looks and feels like an Apple Watch that comes in three materials i.e. aluminium, polished stainless steel and brushed titanium. Our favourite is the Blue aluminium model which we’ve been using as our review unit for the period. Finally, Apple has given us some bright interesting colours for its accessories and the blue variant looks phenomenal. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The smartwatch has the same always-on display meaning you won’t have to keep twisting your wrist to check the time or notifications. It’s best when you are working out or driving as it’s less distracting and requires one less action. What’s great is that the Apple Watch Series 6’s battery lasts about the same time as its predecessor even with features like Blood Oxygen readings happening in the background. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Series 6 comes in two sizes and if you have a large wrist like mine, I would recommend the 44mm variant. If you’ve got slimmer wrists, the larger model is going to look quite awkward on your wrists but thankfully you can get a 40mm version as well. You can either get an LTE variant if you need to make a lot of calls on the go or simply the GPS version if you just need it for notifications and running. While most of the Apple Watch’s design remains the same, Apple did introduce new Solo Loop bands that we didn’t get the opportunity to check out. Having said that, the Series 6 does come with a silicone strap which also requires you to give Apple the exact measurement of your wrist. To be honest, it’s worth it as you can then simply slide in your wrist into the Apple Watch or slide your wrist out making it far easier to use. Think of it like any ordinary wrist accessory that you may have worn in the past but instead this thing has a smartwatch on it as well. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The right side of the Apple Watch has the digital crown which you use to navigate and select apps on the Apple Watch. It doubles up as a sensor for the ECG feature as well. The bottom of the smartwatch houses most of the sensors that include the heart-rate monitor, and infrared LEDs for SPO2 readings. If you like to hike or go climbing, there is also a dedicated watch face complication that uses the barometric altimeter and GPS to track your elevation in real-time. This means you can track in real-time how many flights of stairs you’ve climbed or how high you’ve hiked up on a hill. Performance The Apple Watch Series 6 comes with the new S6 dual-core chipset based on the A13 Bionic SoC. The smartwatch feels faster than the Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple claims it to be around 20 percent at that. To be honest, the Series 5 was already quite fast but it was surprising to see Apple beat itself at its own game this year. The Series 6 runs smoothly when navigating or opening apps - a major complaint I’ve had with every other smartwatch. This is what sets any Apple Watch apart from Google Wear devices or even other fitness trackers. If you are going to move from a Fitbit or a Galaxy smartwatch, you will notice a whole new world right away. There’s isn’t lag whenever I get a notification on my phone and the smartwatch, it rings at the same time as I get a call on my phone and it is the best performing fitness wearable device right now. None of these things is done well by any of its competitors which is why Apple Watch is still the king of wearables in our opinion. In our testing, the Series 6 would last around 15-16 hours on a single charge with always-on display, notifications, phone calls and blood oxygen readings being taken in the background. While its competitor's devices can last up to days, none of them perform as well as the Apple Watch. What good is a smartwatch that can last days but can’t do anything well? However, in the case of the Apple Watch, I don’t mind it not lasting an entire day because it does everything it is supposed to do well. It works throughout the day and only requires charging when you are about to go to bed. FeaturesWe aren’t going to talk about all the previous features on the Apple Watch Series 6 as they work just as well on the Series 5 and you can read all about it in our review here. To keep it short, it manages all the health tracking metrics well and accurately including heart rate tracking, ECG, breathing and exercise tracking. The only thing you need to know is that Series 6 can do everything faster and more accurately than the Series 5. However, we will talk about the major new features i.e. Blood Oxygen and Sleep tracking that is exclusive to Series 6. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The SPO2 reading feature on the Apple Watch works in two ways. You can either fire up the application manually or check on your levels from the health app since the Series 6 checks for SPO2 levels automatically in the background at all times. In terms of accuracy, we used a Pulse Oximeter and compared the results with the Apple Watch. In almost every case, the Apple Watch was only 1-2% off in accuracy when compared with the readings taken by the pulse oximeter machine. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The process for tracking SPO2 is fairly simple as you just need to fire up the app and rest your wrist. 15 seconds later, the watch will display your readings with a percentage. If you are curious, blood levels anywhere between 95% -100% are normal and anything lower means you should check in with your local doctor. Having said that, while the feature works well, there were times we faced problems as we would get a message saying "measurement was unsuccessful” even though we were resting our wrist as indicated. Maybe an update in the future might fix this problem but for now, you need to remain extremely still to get accurate readings. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The second feature introduced with Series 6 and watchOS 7 is the ability to track your sleep. It’s been a long-requested feature and Apple finally made it happen. It’s quite simple to use and you simply need to set your bedtime in the Health app or the Watch itself. The Apple Watch will automatically go into sleep mode. When you wake up, the Apple Watch will tell you the number of hours you slept and your heart rate throughout the night. Having said that, we would have loved to see the Apple Watch giving us more details about our sleeping patterns such as deep or light sleep and REM. The third feature that has been added is Series 6’s ability to detect if you are washing your hands. It’s probably the most relevant feature to add on the smartwatch since the COVID-19 pandemic. WatchOS 7’s new hand-washing detection gets triggered automatically when the smartwatch’s microphone picks up the sound of running water and a soap dispenser. The mode will start right away and lasts for 20 seconds. The Apple Watch will notify you when the timer is up indicating that it is safe for you to be done with washing your hands. While it may seem quite pointless to have this feature on the smartwatch but you will be surprised to know how people don’t take washing hands seriously. It may not be a big deal, but this feature was necessary for people who want to stay safe during this pandemic. The Final SayThere’s no denying the Apple Watch is the best smartwatch on the planet and the Series 6 takes it a bit further. With new valuable features, faster performance and new customisation options, the Apple Watch Series 6 is by far the king of smartwatches and fitness trackers as far as we are concerned. Sure, we would have loved it to look a bit different and have longer battery life, but for an average user, it doesn’t get better than this in 2020. View the full article
  17. The Union Minister of India, Amit Shah, turns 56 today and he is one of the indispensable leaders that BJP has. He is also currently serving as the National President of the Bharatiya Janata Party. He has played an important role in the BJP and is also addressed as the modern Chanakya. From joining the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at a young age of 14 to being appointed as the Union Home Minister of the country under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rule, Amit Shah has seen a meteoric rise in his political career. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitshahofficial) Born on October 22, 1964, Amit Shah's father Anilchandra Shah used to run a business dealing in PVC pipes. Amit Shah completed his schooling in Mehsana and pursued his graduation in biochemistry from CU Shah Science College in Ahmedabad. For a brief period of time, he handled his father’s business and then worked as a stock broker in Ahmedabad. It was early in life that he found his way into politics and after joining RSS, he soon became a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the RSS. It was in 1982, he met Narendra Modi for the first time. The two came together and things were to change for good. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitshahofficial) When Narendra Modi was first appointed the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001, Amit Shah also gained popularity. In July 2014, he was appointed as the BJP's national president and he was appreciated for his tactics which changed the wave for BJP’s political ways. He moved the bill to scrap Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and also introduced Citizenship Amendment. The two always come together when it comes to taking powerful decisions in the political arena. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitshahofficial) Today, Amit Shah is celebrating his 56th birthday and we wonder if there were a biopic on the modern Chanakya, who could possibly play him. And we think these five Bollywood actors will be perfect for the role of the politician. 1. Paresh Rawal View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@pareshrawal1955) Widely respected for his versatility, he has impressed us with some very powerful performances. We feel he can be perfect for the role of Amit Shah as we have seen him nail the Gujarati accent in the past too and his acting skills need no introduction. 2. Pankaj Tripathi View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@pankajtripathi) From playing Kaleen Bhaiya to a Guru in Sacred Games, Pankaj Tripathi is a man who can pull off any character with ease. He could also portray Amit Shah as he can add meaning to any character he plays on the big screen. 3. Saurabh Shukla View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@saurabhshuklafilms) When a biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi was announced, people wanted Saurabh Shukla to play the role of Amit Shah because he looks a bit like Amit Shah, and with his power-packed performance, he can take the role to another level. 4. Boman Irani View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@boman_irani) From Dr. Asthana from Munnabhai MBBS to Virus in 3 Idiots and a politician in Bhoothnath Returns, Boman Irani has always been appreciated for experimenting with his characters. He can surely play the role of Amit Shah and nail it to perfection. 5. Manoj Joshi View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@actormanojjoshi) Manoj Joshi has already played the role of Amit Shah in the Narendra Modi biopic but he was underutilized in the movie as not many scenes focused on how Amit Shah changed the image of BJP and Narendra Modi. Considering how brilliant an actor Joshi is, he can surely ace the role. Who do you think is perfect for playing Amit Shah from our list? Have any other names in mind? Let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  18. Frizzy hair is quite taxing as the innate nature and the tendency of the hair is dry and dehydrated. The outer layer of the hair, the cuticle, lifts up and it lets the moisture pass through it and makes hair strands swell up. But, thankfully, you don't have to live with frizz forever. Once you have figured that your hair is too dry, you can try out these effective hacks that will help control the frizz: 1. Say No To Combs © iStock Combing is one of the most dreadful things for frizzy hair. When you run a comb through your hair, it will be more unkempt than ever. Instead of fluffing your hair up, use a wide-toothed comb. If that doesn't work for you, you can run your fingers as well. Try this hack as it will keep frizz under control. 2. Wash Your Hair With Lukewarm Water © iStock When you use hot, styling tools, it can damage your hair follicles. The same way, even cold water or extremely hot water can turn your follicles dry. Instead, stick to lukewarm water. You'll find the benefit of fighting the frizziness in no time with this hack. 3. Cut Down The Shampoo Frequency © iStock Frizzy hair can be a hassle, especially when you use chemically filled shampoos on your hair. These shampoos take away your hair's endogenous oil from the scalp and in turn, give dry hair texture. To combat it, invest in a paraben and sulfate-free shampoo, followed by a hydrating conditioner. Shampoo your hair three times a week. If you still want to continue the good old fashion of washing the hair daily, skip the shampoo and only use a dab of conditioner on your hair and then rinse it off. 4. A Conditioner Is Gold For Your Hair © iStock No matter what you do, you can't possibly escape the goodness of a conditioner, when you are dealing with frizzy hair. In fact, it's a good idea to use a leave-in conditioner for your hair daily, for at least half-hour, since your hair demands hydration and this is the best way out. Ensure it's not filled with silicones or sulfates and we promise you, your hair will thank you for it. 5. Change Your Pillowcases © iStock Frizzy hair can't deal with friction, which is why everything that hinders with this hair texture, should be completely avoided. If the surface of your bed is not suitable for your hair, it will only lead to more frizziness. Trade your cotton pillowcases with silk or satin ones, to keep your hair away from reacting with abrasive surfaces. 6. Do Deep Conditioning © iStock It looks like a big deal, but it's just one more extra step in your shower caddy. Deep conditioning or using a hair mask is a treatment that you can do at home once a week. Since these methods penetrate deep into the skin, with natural ingredients, you can typically keep them on longer than your everyday conditioner and reap its benefits. 7. Say No To Heat © iStock Drying your hair using a blow-dryer every day will only dry up your hair even more. Your scalp will turn weaker and result in breakage. Instead, opt for air-drying and when you are in rush, you can always stick with a diffuser, which is less aggressive on the hair. View the full article
  19. BJP’s claim of ‘free coronavirus vaccination for all’ promise in Bihar just when elections are around the corner has raised many questions in the mind of the people.

  20. It was in 2010 when a 22-year-old Mesut Ozil first gave everyone a glimpse of his impeccable footballing skills. While Germany couldn't go past eventual champions Spain in the semifinals, Ozil left a big impression on the minds of football pundits and fans on the back of his impressive performances. Thanks to his rise to stardom, the German playmaker secured a lucrative contract with Real Madrid where he spent three years before swapping La Liga for English Premier League (EPL) with a move to Arsenal in 2013. His achievements and feats at Santiago Bernabeu earned him a spectacular reception at the Emirates stadium with the Gunners expecting their new signing to change their fortunes. © Reuters An elegant left-footed player blessed with great vision, Ozil dazzled in the Arsenal shirt in the initial years, under then-manager Arsene Wenger, before hitting a slump in form. Owing to his inconsistency on the pitch, Ozil fell out of favour under Wenger's successor Unai Emery - a situation their new manager Mikel Arteta inherited when he took charge last December. But, despite his past performances, Arteta gave Ozil a start in his first 10 league games in charge before the global pandemic led to the suspension of the Premier League. Since 7th March, Ozil has not seen a single minute of competitive action. And, despite being Arsenal's highest-paid player, earning a staggering £350,000-a-week in wages, Ozil was not included in Arteta's 25-man squad for the current EPL season. Dejected by his axing from the 25-man list, Ozil took to social media and penned down an emotional letter expressing his frustration at the club. "This is a difficult message to write to the Arsenal fans that I've played for over the past few years. I'm really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being," Ozil said in a letter he shared on Twitter. ️️ #M1Ö #YaGunnersYa pic.twitter.com/hF7abGklOT — Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) October 21, 2020 "Upon signing my new contract in 2018, I pledged my loyalty and allegiance to the club that I love, Arsenal, and it saddens me that this has not been reciprocated. As I have just found out, loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. Before the coronavirus break, I was really happy with the development under our new coach, Mikel Arteta - we've been on a positive way and I would say my performances were on a really good level," the letter read. "But then, things changed, again, and I was no longer allowed to play football for Arsenal. What else can I say? London still feels like home, I still have many good friends in this team, and I still feel a strong connection with fans of this club," he added. © Reuters If Ozil's dip in form isn't enough, his recent antics off the pitch, too, have weakened his relationship with the club and fans. During the pandemic, he was one of three players to refuse to take a 12.5 per cent pay cut which was later reduced to 7.5 per cent after Arsenal qualified for Europe by winning the FA Cup last season. Last December, the Gunners had also distanced themselves from Ozil's comments on Instagram where he spoke out against China's persecution of the Uighur population - a mostly Muslim Turkic people - by claiming the club "has always adhered to the principle of not involving itself in politics". Thus, many football fans slammed Ozil's heartfelt letter as a mere sympathy-seeking publicity stunt. Mesut you need to stop playing the victim, If you truly love our club, you would have agreed to move when given the opportunity to leave, rather than collecting Full pay knowing full well that there’s no future st this club for You! — The Chairman (@goonerck1) October 21, 2020The club have shown their loyalty to you in the shape of £350,000 PER WEEK. If the manager thought you could fit into his team you'd be playing. Arsenal have been ridiculously loyal to you despite your astronomical contract. If you actually cared about Arsenal you'd move clubs. — janderbend (@janderbend) October 21, 2020Bro @MesutOzil1088 if you aren't wanted....U leave!!!!stop all this PR stunts you are pulling,my country's headache is enough for me for now.whether you played well or not,it was communicated to you that aren't in the coaches plan as a good football player who knows his worth, — Orlando Innocent #BBnaija (@Straybulletz) October 21, 2020As an Arsenal fan I don’t want you to wear our shirt again. You have been supporting Erdogan and #Azerbaijan in their #WarCrimes against the Armenians in #Artsakh / Nagorno-Karabakh. Arsenal FC and it’s family of fans doesn’t stand for this. — 🇦🇲 (@hshay77) October 21, 2020Truth be told, Mesut is too greedy, the rest of the team agreed to the pay cut but he didn't, and now he talks about loyalty??? The discussion should be about greed, not loyalty. FOH! — Properties by WILLSTONE HOMES (@saomba) October 22, 2020You see, this right here is the problem. Always itching to talk. Socratis hasn't said anything about being excluded from either squads.....but you.....always with a point to prove.... — kome lincoln e (@lincblaq) October 21, 2020Arsenal is moving on from Özil. When he finally leaves everyone will forget about him and focus on the Real thing which is Arsenal. Lobatan! 🤷‍♂️ — PaulAmo (@Paulexy02) October 22, 2020Dear Mesut, nice PR as always unfortunately outside of football you've concentrated more than on the pitch , since your arrival you've had two decent seasons...@adidasfootball dropped you aswell because let's face it your very average now and the football world knows it. — "Be Excited FC" (@GoonerCraig41) October 21, 2020At USD460,000/week anyone would be "loyal". Didn't he refuse a pay cut at the beginning of the covid19 crisis? Was he loyal then? — Alexei Ramotar (@AlexeiRamotar) October 21, 2020Had Ozil's performances in the last 3 years been as good as his PR we wouldn't have reached this situation. No player is bigger than the club. Time for us fans to move on. — Padfoot (@Prakhar_8) October 21, 2020You only have yourself to blame here. If you was loyal to our club you would of walked away in the summer, giving us more financial firepower. You chose money over helping the club and that is what most fans will remember you for. — Dave Boulton (@DaveyB92) October 21, 2020 View the full article
  21. Saif Ali Khan's personal aesthetic can be defined as sharp and elemental at the same time. After doing films like Jawaani Jaaneman, Tanhaji, and Laal Kaptan, it is evident that it is not just his brilliant acting skills but also his sense of style that has evolved in the last couple of years. He now sticks to wearable, relaxed silhouettes. We're talking cotton kurtas and other breathable fabrics on an everyday basis. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Case in point, Saif Ali Khan was recently seen with Kareena Kapoor Khan and son, Taimur, wearing a solid navy blue cotton kurta, along with a pair of crisp white pants. To complete the look with his mask, he also threw in a pair of shades and a pair of classic leather monk straps in the light brown shade. The fusion outfit with the pair of monk straps surprisingly looks good together. Take a look at his outfit here: © Viral Bhayani We think that this is definitely a great outfit for the transitional weather. In fact, combining the kurta with white pants also makes it a great fusion outfit that we can definitely take a cue from. Amid Unlock 5, as more people have started stepping out, casual fusion-wear outfits can be rather convenient as they are not just functional but also look great. © Viral Bhayani Saif has a big lineup of films ahead of him. He is next going to be seen in films like Adipurush, Go Goa Gone 2, Bhoot Police, and Bunty Aur Babli 2 next year. This also means we shall be seeing more of him soon. Considering that each film will require him to change his look, we can't wait to see the 4 different looks on him. View the full article
  22. Every day we come across many bizarre incidents and this time, it was rather a scary one. Recently, priests of the Sri Ananthapura temple in north Kerala’s Kasaragod had a visitor that none of us can guess. Yes, a vegetarian crocodile. According to the priests at the temple, the crocodile had made the temple lake its home for the past many years and this time, he visited the temple and entered the temple premises. The priests also confirmed that this is Babiya’s first-ever entry into the temple. © Unsplash Croc Temple official Chandrasekharan said, “Some reports suggest Babiya entered the sanctum sanctorum but it is not correct. However, it came to the temple premises on Tuesday evening and spent some time there and went back after chief priest Chandraprakash Nambisan asked it go to its permanent habitat-- the temple pond.” Also, Babiya the crocodile is believed to be vegetarian and no one has any idea as to how the crocodile came to the pond and who named it. But, people around say that the crocodile has been in the temple for over 70 years now and has never acted wild with people. Babiya eats whatever offerings come to the temple and come out whenever the temple priests call for him. © Unsplash Croc However, it is also said the circus personnel must have deposited hatchlings years back in the pond and only one of them survived. The best part is that the crocodile has never attacked anyone. “The priest feeds Babiya twice a day. At times he puts the rice ball right into its mouth. The priest has a unique chemistry with Babiya. The temple pond has enough fishes and we believe it never attacks or consumes them. It is a fully vegetarian crocodile keeping with the tradition of the ancient temple,” said the temple official. © Unsplash Croc Also, Babiya is a star attraction of the temple and only comes out during feasting hours. Now, that’s a pretty smart croc. View the full article
  23. We've seen plenty of good options on the Windows laptop side of the fence in 2020, yet there's hardly any laptop that comes close to Apple's MacBook line up. Only a handful of them get a respectable nod from enthusiasts and the Dell XPS 15 is one of them. Dell's XPS series laptops are often the ones that are looked upon as equals to MacBooks, so we wanted to see if it stands true for the new one that came out in 2020 or tells a different story. Well, we've been using the Dell XPS 15 9500 for the better part of a month now and we can't wait to tell you more about it. Let's begin - Design & Build Quality © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Dell's XPS laptops have been ranking high up on the list of best-looking Windows laptops for years now. That said, we were worried about the design this year because they were beginning to look a bit dated. A bit of a facelift was in order and Dell delivered it with the XPS 15 this year. Taking a closer look at the laptop, you'll see the laptop is now more compact than ever before, particularly in its width. It's not the lightest laptop in the world but the dimensions are well under the acceptable limits. The lid and the chassis are made out of aluminum and the keyboard deck comes fitted with soft-touch carbon fiber. You'll also notice that the speakers are next to the keyboard on both sides, facing forward. This placement helps push the sound directly towards the user and the result is simply great when compared with the laptops that have down-facing speakers. This is another quality of change that we welcome and the speakers sound excellent, in case you're wondering. They get plenty loud without having to crank all the way up. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Overall, we think the Dell XPS 15 9500 screams quality in a way most Windows laptops fail to do. We love that Dell has still managed to keep it classy here without making any compromises. If you were to buy a Windows laptop purely for the looks, then this is the one. DisplayYou'd be spending most of the time staring at the display and we're glad that the Dell XPS 15 has probably the best display we've seen on a laptop this year. In fact, the display is one of our favorite things about this laptop. We've been using the variant that has the optional 4K resolution (3,840-by-2,400-pixel) touch panel and boy, has it been a fantastic experience. It's a 15.6-inch panel with super slim bezels around it. The 92-percent screen-to-body ratio will make you instantly fall in love with it. If that's not enough for you then how about the fact that you get to stare at more vertical pixels, thanks to the 16:10 aspect ratio? It makes it look more modern and aesthetically more pleasing to look at. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The panel is incredibly sharp and vibrant to look at. It's rated for HDR 400, and it maxes out at 500 nits of brightness. It also covers 100 percent of the Adobe RGB spectrum and 94 percent of DCI-P3. It's a stunning panel to use and we think it's just perfect for content creators. You can also choose to opt for the full HD non-touchscreen too. Keyboard & TrackpadThe Dell XPS 15 9500 also has one of the keyboards on a laptop. If you are a writer who appreciates a good keyboard on a laptop, then this will definitely put a smile on your face. The keys have great tactile feedback and the layout is perfect with no odd key placements. It's just a great experience to type on this laptop. The keys are also backlit so you don't have to worry about that either. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The trackpad is also a huge upgrade over any other Windows laptop you've probably used. The sheer size of the trackpad may surprise you at first, but it's definitely one of those things that you can't go back from. It's gigantic, to say the least, but we're not complaining about the space we're getting for smooth scrolls and pans. It uses Windows precision drivers, so they're very reliable too. Overall, a great keyboard and a trackpad. That, along with the beautiful display will definitely make you happy every time you open the lid and start using it. It just never gets old. PortsWe're not too happy about the ports situation though. Besides an SD card slot and a headphone jack, you only get USB-C ports on this laptop, which is a bit of a bummer. Yes, the future is moving towards USB-Cm, but that future isn't here yet and we still find ourselves bamboozled looking for a USB-A port quite often. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The two on the right side of the laptop include Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort support, whereas the one on the right only offers DisplayPort support. Thankfully, all three of them can be used to charge the laptop. Dell also includes both USB-C to USB-A and USB-C to HDMI adapters in the box, so that a relief. PerformanceThe variant of the laptop we used for review was armed to the teeth with an Intel Core i7-10750H processor, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and an Nvidia GTX 1650Ti GPU. You can choose between a few RAM and storage options to see which one suits your budget the best. Day-to-day tasks were no big deal for this beast and it handled everything we threw at it like a champ. Windows laptops have gotten better now thanks to the software advancements too, so no complaints there either. We ran benchmarks on this laptop to see the kind of numbers we could get. Well, the XSP 15 didn't disappoint. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer It scored a respectable score of over 5,000 in PCMark 10, which is higher or on-par with most other similarly-specced Windows laptops on the market. We got a score of around 1,500 in Cinebench 15 which is higher than what we got on the MacBook (around 1,300). We were also able to run all popular photo and video editing tools on this machine without any hiccups. The Dell XPS 15 9500, though it has great internals, is not a gaming laptop, so we don't recommend pushing it to the limits with resource-intensive AAA titles. It can run all the popular titles like Apex Legends, Valorant, Fall Guys, etc., with ease. But again, it's not a gaming laptop so you need to keep an eye on thermals as they're nowhere close to the sophisticated ones found on gaming laptops. Battery LifeThe Dell XPS 15 9500 comes packed with an 86WHr, which was surprisingly good. Though it doesn't measure up to the competitors, it was respectable for a device with a 4K panel running constantly at 75-percent brightness at any given point. The laptop should comfortably get you through a full day provided that you're not pushing the envelope. Of course, things like video/photo editing, gaming, or pretty much anything that gets the core kick-in will consume more battery power, but we don't think you should be doing any resource-intensive work without holding hands with the charger. The Final SayDell's XPS line up has given us some of the best Windows laptops in the past and we're glad that the XPS 15 9500 will carry that torch hereon. Simply put, the Dell XPS 15 9500 is the best version of a laptop that was already amongst the best in the market. You get what we think is one of the most beautiful laptops on the market with some powerful internals. The display is just oh-so-good to look at and it gets a solid recommendation from us for that alone. Honestly, there are no major downsides here except for maybe the price. Coming in at over Rs 2 Lakh, the Dell XPS 15 9500 is surely going to put a deep hole in your pocket. But the XPS 15 9500 will fill that by delivering a great experience and by putting a smile on your face every time you open that lid. It's one of the best laptops we've used this year.

  24. Making an action movie, obviously, costs a massive amount of money, especially, if it's a freaking James Bond movie. But, I've never heard of a movie production having a substantial coke budget. No, not that coke. Reportedly, to perfect a bike stunt scene in the upcoming Bond flick No Time To Die, almost 32,000 litres of Coca Cola was used and yet, no one drank a single drop of that. Basically, the scene had Daniel Craig on a bike on the cobbled street of Matera in southern Italy. To make the road more sticky and safer to actually drive a bike, the aforementioned outrageous amount of coke was sprayed all over. The added bonus was that the coke left the streets looking cleaner than before. Well, we all know coke is the best thing to clean stuff, apparently. © Universal Pictures However, the thought of producers of the movie spending $71,000, or over Rs 50 lakh, on just coke is pretty hilarious, but also extremely wasteful. To put things in perspective, the bike in the scene cost less than one third the amount spent on coke. Hmm. Triumph Scrambler 1200 Bond edition is worth $18,500, and well, that's basically nothing compared to the $71k. © Universal Pictures Stunt head Lee Morrison, the man behind the bizarre idea, said, "I spent nearly €60,000 spraying Coca-Cola around Matera. I’ve been spraying Coca-Cola on slippery surfaces for a very long time." Well, it's great that the coke did the trick because performing a bike stunt really is no time to die. View the full article
  25. “Jaa simran jaa, jee le apni zindagi”, "Bade bade deshon mein, aisi chhoti chotti baatein hoti rehti hai Senorita”. These are just some of the many one-liners our brains have registered over the years, courtesy the ageless magic and the cultural impact that a certain blockbuster managed to create. The timeless appeal and the charisma of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge continues to live on, much long after the perennial hit celebrated 25 years of its golden existence. So what is it about Raj and Simran’s love story that has managed to pass itself down, from generation to generation and continues to make everyone watch it every time it is on TV? Here are some timeless lessons that every millennial can learn from this NRI model romance: 1. Utopian Love Doesn’t Always WinRaj’s love for Simran, his lack of expressing it even once on that Europe tour, Simran’s attraction to him and her acceptance of the fact that everything they shared amongst them, all those moments, that was love for these two characters. While in a Utopian world, this kind of Shakespearean romance is all one would want, the reality is that for most Indians, family acceptance and marriage go hand in hand. The movie reminds us that while fighting for love is important, having a reality check of your situation is also crucial. Not everyone can chase a Simran to India like Raj. Use social media, connect before you disappear. © Yash Raj Films 2. Importance Of Chasing Your FreedomOn one hand, we have Simran being the perfect daughter who is weaved in the patriarchal system and is aware that a scripted fate awaits her and is somewhere trying to make peace with it. She tries to bargain for her freedom from ‘Bauji’ as she cajoles him to let her go on one last voyage before he gets her married to a stranger back home. On the other hand, we’ve got Raj who epitomises the ‘spoilt brat’ image and mirrors the callousness that is often attached to the clichéd image of rich NRI kids. Anyway, both of them, in their own way, chase and fight for their freedom. Be it opposing the views of your parents, or yearning for them to understand your perspective, freedom is a choice we have to make for ourselves. © Yash Raj Films 3. Defining Your Own MoralityThe movie emphasizes the importance of family values, morals and loving your parents to the point that you got to agree & fulfil all their wishes. The projection of this idea is wonderful but in 2020, as we continue being the ‘woke’ generation, please don’t embrace any disrespect towards the people who love you the most, but also draw your own line of ‘morality'. Have a mind of your own, turn disagreements into discussions but build your own value chart that is not burdened with generational trauma. © Yash Raj Films 4. Love DeeplyIt’s a love story, right? So it’s meant to preach this message. Love one another, love yourself enough to allow good things to happen to you, love your parents, love your family. Above all, trust the process. The movie shows how some situations are not the best in life, but someone always comes through, offering advice, offering their love, which will help you sail through it all. Be it Raj’s father who leaves everything to be his wingman, or Simran’s mother, who is aware of the price she will have to pay if her daughter elopes with the lover, or be it everyone’s favourite ‘Bauji’ who wins every heart with ‘Ja Simran, jee le apni zindagi’, the movie is a stark reminder that love is a process that needs to be instilled and practised with care and determination. © Yash Raj Films View the full article
