  1. POCO launched the new M2 Pro a couple of days back. It got a lot of flak for being just a rebranded Xiaomi phone. We've already reviewed the phone and we think the POCO fans deserve much better than what they've offered this time. With all that being said, POCO is back in the news today. This time POCO is in trouble after people in the reviewer community pointed out how the phone comes pre-installed with some of the Chinese apps that were banned in India recently. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This is indeed something that raises a lot of eyebrows, but POCO has assured that they're not defying any law. The company noted that the review units shipped to the reviewer community entered production before the government's directive. That explains why those apps were pre-installed on the POCO M2 Pro. Here, check it out - An open letter to the entire POCO community. â #POCOForIndia (@IndiaPOCO) July 9, 2020 POCO says that they're working on a software update to fix the same and provide a secure user experience to the end-user. We're not sure when this software will roll out to us, but we'll definitely keep an eye on the same. That being said, if in case any user buying the phone ends up seeing these apps pre-installed on their phones, then it looks like the same update should fix the issue. So just make sure you're on the latest software before starting to use the device. POCO says that they're not sharing any personal info or other data with anyone. Some people also raised some privacy issues with reference to how the phone handles app permissions. POCO hasn't knowledged the same, but we hope it'll be fixed via a software update too.

  2. Rajkummar Rao has had his own fair share of struggles before he made it big in the film industry. He has, time and again, said that he has been rejected because of reasons like his complexion and looks. It was in 2013 that Rajkummar gave a brilliant performance in Shahid and still he wasnât considered for NH10, Anushka Sharmaâs first production. Rajkummar was the first choice for the movie and for reasons unknown, he was replaced by Neil Bhoopalam. © MensXP Rajkummar never officially signed NH10 but was approached for the movie. But, the reality is that Anushkaâs film got delayed and Rajkummar moved on to other films like Shahid and Kai Po Che that gave Rajkummar a much-needed recognition. "I never signed 'NH 10' officially. I was supposed to do it. Then it got delayed. Then I moved on to other films like 'Kai Po Che' and 'Shahid'. Then I started working on another film. I can't do two films at the same time. I prefer doing one film at a time," Rajkummar told in an earlier interview with Times Of India when he was asked about the replacement. âSo it was a mutual decision. I share a very good relationship with the team. I think Anushka is also a very sensible girl. She is a really good actor and I don't think she will do anything like that," he added. But according to some reports, it was Anushka who decided to replace Rajkummar with actor Neil Bhoopalam. A report in Deccan Chronicle stated that Anushka tried to amend ties with Rajkummar through a mediator but it didnât work. A source told the daily, âRaj hasnât forgotten how he was dropped from the film without even being informed. He got to know from news reports that he has been replaced and he felt that it was very unprofessional on Anushkaâs part. He doesnât seem to be in a forgiving mood and would rather work with those who supported him during his days as a struggler in the industry.â Well, Raj did get rejected a lot of times but has proved that with talent, you can win the world.

  3. As the rest of the world slowly eases back to their regular lives amid the coronavirus pandemic which continues to remain as prevalent as ever, India seems to be becoming the new global hotspot for the contagion. With 24,879 positive cases coming forward in less than 24 hours (highest single-day spike in the country) India recently overtook Russia for the third spot on the list of the most adversely affected nations in the world and is currently standing at 7,69,150 total cases. JUST IN: India reports its biggest daily increase since coronavirus outbreak, with 24,879 new cases and 487 new deaths. Total of 767,296 cases and 21,129 deaths. â Norbert Elekes (@NorbertElekes) July 9, 2020 But the cause of worry might be more than what it feels right now. According to a recent study carried out by Professor John Sterman & Team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), India might see 2.8 lakh positive cases daily by February 2021. Prof. John Sterman & Team at MIT who established the discipline of System Dynamics that I used in my Paper on Disruptive Innovations posit huge jump in COVID in India - 2.87 Lakh cases per day. We need to be very careful, need to test & isolate! @yadavakhilesh @samajwadiparty â Prof. Abhishek Mishra (@profamishra) July 8, 2020 The research suggests that India will be the worst-affected country in the world because of the COVID-19 disease with the USA (95,000 cases per day), South Africa (21,000 cases per day) and Iran (17,000 cases per day) on the second, third and fourth spot, respectively, by the beginning of March next year. Researchers say that the lack of timely testing and awareness led to approximately 35.3 million cases and 1,97,000 deaths which could have been avoided at a global level. However, these measures wonât be as effective now and that future outcomes will depend on âthe willingness of communities and governments to reduce transmission.â The study reiterates the importance of social distancing, "future outcomes are less dependent on testing and more contingent on the willingness of communities and governments to reduce transmissionâ â Tarun Malaviya (@TarunMalaviya) July 8, 2020 According to the data until June 18, 2020, it was also calculated that all nations continue to remain well below the required levels of prevalence and infection fatality rate (IFR) to attain herd immunity (when the majority of a population is immune to an infectious disease, which in turn provides indirect protection to others). Earlier this week, panic ensued when a group of scientists reported their findings to the World Health Organisation that suggested that the virus might be airborne. However, experts at Indiaâs Council of Scientific and Industrial Research believe that there is no need to get overwhelmed. Is coronavirus airborne? Is herd immunity possible? Hear out @WHO chief scientist Dr @doctorsoumya's response to @sardesairajdeep. #NewsToday Full video - â IndiaToday (@IndiaToday) July 8, 2020 â... what is being communicated to WHO is that the virus can be at least temporarily airborne, which means it can travel in droplets of smaller size less than five micron which will mean that it will be hanging in the air for longer than bigger droplet which settles down in a few minutes,â director of the CSIR-CCMB, Rakesh Mishra, told PTI. For people on a personal level, the need to practise social distancing and avoid being in a crowded room, especially without aeration, like AC rooms, is of tantamount importance, more than ever.

  4. Weâve all tried our hand at using portable USB fans, handheld fans and anything else we can think of to keep us cool during the summers. However, there may just be the perfect gadget now available in Japan for everyone who needs a little bit cooling this summer. Sony created a wearable air conditioner called the Reon Pocket and has started selling it in Japan from this week. © Sony The wearable air conditioner was unveiled last year and Sony said the device supports both cooling and heating modes and can be used on the move. The device is quite small and looks very similar to Appleâs Magic Mouse. It can be worn near your neck and even comes with an undershirt with a pocket to place the Reon Pocket. The shirt is quite breathable as it is made of plaster fabric and has seams to hide the air conditioner in the pocket. You can also use your own undershirts but Sony suggests it should be loose and breathable clothing for the device to be effective. © Sony The Sony Reon Pocket is not meant to be used while working out or anything that involves intense sweating. In order to control the device, one needs to use its smartphone app that connects via Bluetooth. It can even be used manually as users can choose from four different temperature levels. The portable air conditioner is currently only available to buy in Japan and we desperately need it here in India as air conditioners are ramping up huge electricity bills ever since people have started to work from home. © Sony The Sony Reon Pocket costs around 13,000 Yen in Japan which translates to roughly Rs 9,100. The undershirt is sold separately for Rs 1260. However, there is no news whether we would see this product outside of Japan. Sony did show off a âLiteâ variant of the device last year where one could only use the manual modes; however, it seems like Sony may launch that later in the year. Would you buy a wearable air conditioner if Sony sold the Reon Pocket here in India? It does sound like a whacky idea but could just be the solution to our hot weather and high electricity bills.

  5. Samsung is also looking to remove chargers in boxes of some of its smartphones from 2021, according to a report by ETNews. The company is looking to not supply the charger as many of their customers already have chargers, reduce costs and also help the environment, according to the report. © YouTube/Technical Ejaz Not including a charger in the box of a phone is already being considered by Apple for future iPhones and it seems like Samsung will also follow suit. However, Apple may remove the charger from their phones starting this year with the iPhone 12 launch, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple will be phasing out the 18W and 5W chargers that come with iPhones depending on the model. In Samsungâs case, most of their phones support 18WPD and PPS charging which means you can use any third-party âPower Deliveryâ charger with the phones. Samsung like Apple will also sell chargers separately which customers can buy and only include a USB cable in the box along with the phone. USB C has come a long way as more devices are now supporting the port and becoming the industry standard. From laptops, phones, power banks to even the Nintendo Switch; it seems like USB-C is here to stay and will become the norm for most devices this year. Samsungâs move to remove the charger from the box not only lets them cut costs; but also help conserve the environment as there will be less electronic waste. © Amazon Samsung has not officially confirmed the news; however, it looks like this move will cut costs for smartphones that have already been facing skyrocketing prices in the past few years. It could also serve as yet another business for Samsung where the South Korean giant can upstart accessories as a viable business for future smartphones. What do you think of Samsung removing the charger in the box for some of their smartphones? Do you think it will help Samsung cut costs and help the environment? Let us in know the comments section whether this is a good move by both Samsung and Apple. Source: ETNews View the full article
  6. TikTok is one of the Chinese apps banned in India and even though âdesiâ users supported the government's decision to ban the app, we were looking for a substitute all along and it looks like we have already found one- Instagram Reels. Facebook confirmed that they are coming up with Instagram Reels in India. The 15-second video format platform is a saviour for people who were active on TikTok and enjoyed the app. This video format is going to fill the space vacated by the ban and now people can put similar content on Instagram. Instagram Reels is all about its users sharing short format videos on their feed for their followers. Also, Instagram Reels is on a test in India right now, which means that now everyone can access it and will be rolled out in planned phases. In Brazil, Germany, and France, Instagram Reels is already live for testing and India has now joined the league. As the feature went live on peopleâs phones- the users noticed the similarity between TikTok and Instagram Reels and soon the social media was flooded with memes. Not to forget, Mark Zuckerbergâs smart timing to launch Instagram Reels. Checkout the memes here- #instagramreels First too much tiktok videos on insta and now reels. Le Instagram: â 2G_user.

  7. Bollywood celebs keep us excited, not just with their on-screen presence but also with trivia on their investments and big fat pay-cheques. As decades passed, the numbers have only risen and besides all the money being spent on making a movie, the fees of B-town actors continue to make our jaws drop. While we can assume the cost to be a bomb in today's time, let's take a look at what a fat pay cheque looked like in the '90s. 1. Amitabh Bachchan © Twitter/Amitabh Bachchan A legendary actor, who has done more than 190 movies, Big B started his career in 1969 and made his debut with Saat Hindustani. Speaking of his fees in the 90s, he was amongst the highest-paid actors. All the projects that he picked post Khuda Gawah, he charged Rs 3 Crores approximately per film. That's a lot if you consider it in the 90s! 2. Ajay Devgn © Twitter/Ajay Devgn The promising actor made his debut in Bollywood with Phool Aur Kaante. In the 90s, he was earning Rs 70 Lakhs as per reports for each movie that he did. Though his movies failed to strike a chord with the audience initially, the actor's career progressed with time and his earning increased too. 3. Madhuri Dixit © Twitter/Madhuri Dixit Touted as one of the most talented actresses, Madhuri Dixit gave some massive hits back in the '90s. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun hit the jackpot at the box office and broke records. Post the success of this movie, Madhuri charged Rs 50 Lakhs for Rakesh Roshan's Koyla. 4. Sunny Deol © Twitter/Sunny Deol Once the most bankable star of Bollywood, Sunny Deol proved his prowess post Gadar and Ghayal. These two movies established his name in the industry. The actor was said to charge Rs 50 Lakhs for Rajkumar Kohli's Jaani Dushman, but soon enough, his fee soared and it was hiked to Rs 60-70 Lakhs. 5. Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/SRK King Khan delivered back to back hit movies in the '90s. The actor who gave some massive hits including Karan Arjun and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge charged Rs 30 Lakhs per movie and post that we saw him strike a chord with the audience in Dil To Pagal Hai, Yes Boss and Pardes. 6. Akshay Kumar © Twitter/Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar's star value soared in 1994, when he had 12 films, back to back. The actor earned a staggering Rs 55 Lakhs, post his movie Mohra and the zeroes only went onto increase with time. Cut to 2020, as per reports the actor has plausibly become the highest-paid actor and is said to have signed Aanand L Rai's next movie and has reportedly charged Rs 120 Crores approximately for it. (Yes, you read that right.) 7. Suniel Shetty © TOI Suniel Shetty's first movie Balwaan which released in 1992, tanked majorly at the box office. But, he saw success after the release of his movie Mohra, post which his success streak only rose with Gopi Kishan. His fee for Rajkumar Kohli's Jaani Dushman was worth Rs 30 Lakhs. 8. Nana Patekar © Twitter/Nana Patekar After Nana Patekar's revolutionary performances in movies like Tirangaa and Krantiveer, the actor hiked his price to Rs 50 Lakhs. He has also reportedly donated 90% of his income to charity. View the full article
  8. While most of us watched Karan Joharâs Student Of The Year, we thought such schools donât exist at all. And most of us wanted to study in a fancy and posh school like St. Teresa but didnât know if such schools existed. To our surprise, many schools in India give us the Bollywood set the vibe and are exactly how it was shown in KJoâs SOTY. So, here is a list of 5 such schools in India thatâll astound you and give Bollywood sets a run for their money- Mayo College, Ajmer © Youtube/Kanak Arora This one looks less of a school and more of a five-star luxurious resort. This school has a polo ground and a golf course and is an all-boys institution. This institution has an infrastructure that looks exactly like a royal palace and offers a quality education that enables the students to dream beyond average. Army Public School, Dagshai © Youtube/Mandeep Singh This school is spread across 40 acres of land and is situated right on the hilltop. Also, this one is ranked 6th amongst most prestigious boarding schools in India. It not only helps in grooming the students but also enables them in shaping their personalities for future endeavors. Bishop Cotton School, Shimla © Youtube/Kanak Arora Bishop Cotton School is one of the most iconic schools in Asia for boys. Bishop Cotton School, Shimla has given us many ambassadors, ministers, politicians, and judges of the country. The school is spread across 56 acres and is around 4Kms away from main Shimla. Doon School, Dehradun © Youtube/EasyShiksha This all-boys school was built in 1923 and is spread across 70-acre of land amidst lush greenery. Apart from A-one education the institution also has a huge auditorium and various knowledge-specific departments that allow the students to accomplish all their future endeavors. Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet © Youtube/HYBIZTV The school premise looks like a royal heritage and this school was built in 1923. Itâs an approximately 123-acre huge campus that is scenic, beautiful and luxurious at the same time. The campus has eight horses, larger than life swimming pools, and a dining hall that accommodates 1600 students. Woah! View the full article
  9. Bollywood films are extremely popular in the country and hold a major power of influence at the same time. They're known to influence the audience not just in terms of trends but also mannerisms the people see in the films. Naturally, films also have a huge potential for advertising in them that brands take advantage of. But brand placements that do not make any sense do come across as weird and hilarious at the same time. Here are a few films that went overboard with brand advertisements 1. Mountain Dew In Mission Istaanbul © IMDB A product that the actors in the film constantly drank throughout the film and we wondered whether they were all addicted to Mountain Dew. 2. Saffolla In Ki and Ka © IMDB When Arjun Kapoor cooks in the kitchen, he uses the brand to cook the food in the house. Some believe that this was a smart product placement. 3. Mountain Dew In Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara © IMDB Hrithik Roshan has had a long-standing association with Mountain Dew. Even in the film ZNMD, he promoted the brand by using its tagline and drinking it whenever he could. A cheeky reference to the brand is seen when he says, âDarr Ke Aage Jeet Haiâ to his friends before they all go for sky diving. 4. Maruti In Mere Dad Ki Maruti © IMDB For a film with a title that has a huge potential, brand collaboration seemed like the most obvious step. But this was one of the most blatant brand collaborations seen. 5. Bournvita In Koi Mil Gaya And Krrish © IMDB For the film Koi Mil Gaya and its sequel, there was a brand collaboration with the kid's energy milk booster Bournvita. The collaboration was so blatant that it was hilarious when Hrithik drank Bournvita milk. 6. Tide In Chup Chup Ke © IMDB Chup Chup Ke too has done a collaboration with Tide detergent powder in a scene in which it blended so well, it looked like seamless product placement in a film for once. But we have to agree that it did come across as a tad bit hilarious. 7. Bikaji Bhujia In Veere Di Wedding © IMDB In the film, everyone seems to be munching on bhujia almost all the time. In fact, this is the most bhujia we've seen being consumed in a film. From Sonam Kapoor and Neena Gupta's character to the guests, everyone is obsessed with bhujia. While Veere Di Wedding also had other brand collaborations, this one particularly stood out. View the full article
  10. The ones standing guard at our borders, protecting our skies and waters from the enemiesâ evil intents deserve more than the social media uproars and RIPs which follow every time our brave soldiers are killed in action at the line of duty. Over the years, there have been thousands and thousands of Indian soldiers who have fought hard and fought fearlessly at the face of death, to protect their motherland even at the cost of their own life. They thwarted every attempt of the enemy to harm our people, and became the face of courage and hope when the enemies wanted to crush our spirit using fear and hate. © Dharma Productions Their lives, their battles as well as their scars and supreme sacrifices deserve more than a frontpage newspaper coverage. These selfless Indian soldiersâ deeds need to be remembered, their daredevilry immortalised and their lives be made a part of pop-culture for the young and old to take pride in and draw inspiration from. © Honourpoint The upcoming release of Shershaah, a biopic based on Kargil war hero Captain Vikram Batra, starring Sidharth Malhotra as the late Army Captain is one such attempt. Captain Batraâs valor and resilience gave the Indian Army the greatest upper hand in winning the Kargil War in 1999 by enabling the capture of the crucial peak Pt 4875. We believe that just like Captain Vikram Batra these 4 Indian soldiers also deserve their own biopics for their show of courage and sacrifice. 1. Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan © Wikipedia There is no way for anyone who has witnessed the 26/11 Mumbai attacks to forget this name. Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was an NSG commando who was the team commander of 51 Special Action Group (51 SAG) responsible for rescue operation of hostages who were held at Mumbaiâs Taj Mahal Palace Hotel by Pakistani terrorists. On the fateful day, Major Unnikrishnan displayed extreme selflessness when he brought his wounded colleague to safety and chased after the enemy. He launched himself into a face-off with the terrorists and was shot from the back while he was engaged in a firefight. Even at the face of death, Major Unnikrishnan kept fighting and uttered his last order to the commandos, "Do not come up, I will handle them." 2. Major General Ian Cardozo © Rediff One of the unforgettable names associated with the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War, Major General Ian Cardozoâs name goes down in history for his show of immense courage in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war. Then an army Major with the 5 Gorkha Rifles, he was asked to replace the second-in-command of his battalion who had been killed in action. Towards the end of the war, Cardozo made the mistake of stepping on a landmine and injured his leg badly. Given the state of his injury, it required immediate medical attention, but with no doctor or sedative in sight, Major General Cardozo cut off his injured leg using his own khurki. He was later operated on by a captured Pakistani army soldier and eventually got a wooden leg. Yet, this setback couldnât deter his spirit as he went on to attain such a high state of fitness, even able-bodied soldiers conceded defeat before him. He went on to serve in the Army for another 22 years after the 1971 war. 3. Subedar Joginder Singh © Wikipedia A Param Veer Chakra awardee (posthumously) Subedar Joginder Singh was an army officer from the 1st Battalion of the Sikh Regiment who had joined the British Indian Army in 1963. Subedar Singh is remembered for his gallantry and leadership during the 1962 Indo-China War where he was commanding a platoon in the North-East Frontier Tracts. During the war, as the Chinese troops advanced towards Tawang, they were intercepted by Sudedar Singhâs platoon of 20 men at the Bum La Pass. Though heavily outnumbered, he led his troop against the Chineseâs attack in three waves, each comprising 200 men. While they managed to defend the post for the first two times, due to lack of men and ammunition, Subedar Singh and his remaining men were forced to fight with bayonets until they were finally overpowered and taken captive. Despite a gunshot wound on his thigh, Subedar Singh managed to kill many Chinese soldiers with his bayonet before getting captured. Even under captivity he refused treatment and later succumbed to his injuries. 4. Captain Anuj Nayyar © Twitter Vikas Manhas Army officer Captain Anuj Nayyar was part of the 17 Jat who was posthumously awarded the Maha Vir Chakra for his bravado during Operation Vijay in the 1999 Kargil War. During the Kargil War Captain Nayyar's first major operation was to secure a strategic peak within the Pimple Complex located in the Mushkoh Valley. Being a strategic location, securing the peak was a top priority. However, given its extreme slopes and height, an aerial intervention was required. But given the sensitivity of the operation, C Coy, 17 Jat, of which Nayyar was the second-in-command, decided to secure the peak without waiting for any aerial support. During the initial phase the C Coy company commander was injured, and command fell upon Captain Nayyar. Having identified the location of 3-4 enemy bunkers, Captain Nayyar went with the lead section and destroyed three bunkers and killed 9 Pakistani soldiers. However, while clearing the fourth bunker an enemy RPG directly hit Captain Nayyar and he was killed. The securing of the Pimple Complex helped recapture Tiger Hill which eventually forced the Pakistani troops to retreat back across the Line of Control. These bravehearts definitely deserve their own biopics, donât you agree? Which other Indian soldier deserves a biopic according to you? View the full article
  11. The Indian Army wants its personnel to refrain from social media apps for any kind of official or personal communication. On Wednesday, citing security reasons, the Indian Army asked its personnel to delete their accounts from 89 social media apps by July 15 or face action. The range of apps that are restricted now for them include social media accounts, e-commerce and dating sites among other commonly used apps. Some of these apps are Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat,, WeChat, Hike, Likee, Shareit, True Caller, PUBG, Tinder, according to a news report. This substantial move has come amid a two-front cyberwar with China and Pakistan as the Indian Army takes into account an "exponential increase" in the number of cases being targeted by their intelligence agencies. Amid the weeks of tensions between India and China following the worst border skirmish in more than five decades, New Delhi is being watchful on all fronts possible. The "all-weather" friends have been trying to trouble India at the LOC and LAC. Even last year, the Indian Army stated in its advisory that the popular social media platform Facebook has turned out to be a crucial source of collecting intelligence, which is why officers holding critical posts in the army must consider deactivating their accounts. Here we have listed out in detail the number of banned apps for the Indian Army personnel under 17 different categories.

  12. Pornography has been a part of our lives for a really long time now. Before the rise of the internet, porn was created and made available to masses via magazines or VHS cassettes or DVDs. But with the growing popularity and easier access to the online world, accessing porn sites is just a click away. The pace at which technology is growing has also made it more immersive than ever, especially with the dawn of Virtual Reality. © iStock The decision to watch porn boils down to a personâs personal choice. However, is it harmful to your health and wellness? According to a 2014 research by the Max Planck Institute in Berlin, the part of the brain which is responsible for triggering pleasure, that is, the striatum, is smaller in those who are regular porn-viewers. This essentially means that they need graphic material to get aroused. It is important to mention, however, that the researchers could not come up with a conclusion on whether the smaller striatum of the test subjects led them to watch more porn or was caused because they watched so much of it. They âassumedâ that the latter is true. © iStock These 7 alarming signs suggest that you might be getting addicted to pornography:If the amount of time you have been spending on watching porn continues to increase on a regular basis. If you feel that you HAVE TO watch porn at least once a day or else something feels missing or your day feels incomplete. If the guilt of watching porn takes over your brain and you continue to do it despite feeling low. © iStock If you spend long periods of time surfing through the internet even at the cost of missing out on other responsibilities or urgent work. If you donât feel aroused by real sex and prefer masturbation over it while watching porn. © iStock If you expect or start asking your partner to âdress like a pornstarâ or behave like one while in bed, during sex. You canât get over the urge to flip out your phone and watch porn even if you know that it is disputing your relationship both sexually and emotionally. © iStock You have to understand that what you watch online isnât real. The people you see âenactingâ sexual pleasure are professional performers who are simply doing their job. The viewers often mistake that as reality and start expecting similar things in their lives and when it feels nothing like what they see online, sometimes they choose to lose themselves in the virtual world. Just keep a check on yourself and if you relate to any of the above mentioned points, act on it for the sake of your happiness and that of the people around you.

  13. From calling a rescue operator a âpedo guyâ on Twitter to smoking weed during one of the most-watched podcasts, to naming his child a seemingly random combination of characters, Elon Musk surely knows how to stay in the news. However, if there is one celebrity billionaire who is actually, at the face of it, seemingly working for the betterment of human lives, it is Elon Musk. © Reuters We have come to recognise him as that eccentric billionaire who has successfully privatised space travel and is making us rethink cars and personal automobiles, thanks to Tesla. Some of us, who have really followed the man know him since his days at or what came to be known as PayPal. What most of us donât know, is how he came to be the billionaire that he is. © Reuters Well, technically, we know how he earned his billions; what most of us donât know, is how exactly he earned his first billion dollars, the milestone that is the hardest to crack into. The thing is, once you have your first billion, it becomes relatively easy to expand your fortune - most billionaires have said so in a number of interviews. What one really needs to be careful about, is how they invest their money, and that they do not squander it away on pointless things. So how did Elon Musk manage to do it? Making the first billion for him was indeed difficult, as compared to the rest of his $54 Billion. © Reuters 1. Starting Out With Odd Jobs © Reddit/r/muskclan Musk got his first paycheck for $500 when at the age of 10, he developed a computer game. When as a teen, he moved to Canada from South Africa, is where he really started working. Before enrolling in college education, he worked as a lumberjack and would cut trees for a lumber company. During this time, he would also work a number of odd and hazardous jobs that would be paying high, like cleaning out the rooms where the logs were disinfected and cleaned, just because no one was willing to do it. Imagine a guy with degrees in Economics and Physics doing such odd jobs, today. 2. Establishing His First Company © Reddit/r/muskclan Borrowing some money from his dad, Elon and his brother Kimbal, during the Dot Com boom, started a company called Zip2, a company that provided real-time maps to media outlets. This was one of the first rudimentary GPS systems that was easily accessible for the common public. This company was bought by Compaq for about $310 Million, of which, musk got about $22 Million. The brothers went on to open up the worldâs first digital payment and online bank that allowed international transactions. bought a software security company called Confinity, the real founders of PayPal. Soon, the venture was renamed as PayPal. 3. Selling PayPal © Reddit/r/muskclan Contrary to popular belief, Elon Musk did not become a billionaire when e-Bay bought PayPal. All Musk earned from that venture was $180 Million. E-Bay made that acquisition for $1.5 Billion, but because there were a lot of investors, and partners in, Elon got just over 10-12 per cent of the deal. 4. Establishing SpaceX © Reuters With the proceeds he got from the sale of PayPal, Musk started his 3rd company, SpaceX or Space Exploration Technologies. Within 6 years, it was regularly getting contracts from NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station. During this time, NASA also outsourced the development of some major projects to SpaceX. This is the business venture that vastly contributed to Musk's personal wealth. 5. Establishing Tesla Incorporated © Reuters Musk was always interested in the physics of energy, and had even gotten into Stanford Universityâs doctoral program before he started his first company. After establishing SpaceX, Musk founded Tesla. Although we know Tesla today as one of the most valuable automobile companies in the world, automotive is just one of the many aspects of the company. There was a time when a majority of the companyâs cash flow came from providing plans and components for solar power plants and high volume electricity storages that were sustainable in nature. It was Teslaâs energy division, which was earlier called SolarCity before it was acquired by him, that really earned Musk his first Billion. © Reuters Tesla won a number of government contracts, especially outside the USA regarding his energy storage solutions. Weâre talking about massive storage systems, ones that could power entire cities for days without end. From here on out, Musk went completely bonkers - he founded The Boring Company, which shares, invested more into his Hyperloop project, and invested in his AI company. View the full article
  14. In his words, âEveryone has a pathâ; Sikandar Kher also had his own journey and with Aarya, he feels that people are finally getting to see him properly. To start with, he is a brilliant actor and is trying hard to prove his mettle with the work he gets. With Aarya, he has got the recognition that he truly deserved. It's not easy to survive in an industry where favouritism plays a huge role but Sikandar kept trying and held himself together in all the tough times. Despite being a star kid, he had to face rejections but he kept going till he finally made people feel his presence with the character of Daulat. © HotStar I got in touch with him to talk about how he feels that people have finally started to accept him with wide open arms. I also had a detailed conversation about how he kept going in the low phases of his life. Here are excerpts from my interview: First of all, let me tell you that your character in Aarya spoke volumes of you as an actor. Did you feel that people have accepted you somewhere because they have given such a humble response and loved you in the show? Were you expecting it? None of us expected that show would do what it has done, to be honest, and it's actually quite amazing that so much love is pouring from all the quarters. But, we had a great time making it and for all of us, it is surely a huge bonus. About me being accepted, I have done work and I feel that people havenât got a chance to see my work. I have been working for a while and nothing has fared well. This is the first thing that people have noticed and itâs quite wonderful how the audience loved my character of Daulat. I am glad that I got to work with Ram Madhvani and the detailing he gave to my character is outstanding. Daulat somewhere did connect with people and I am happy that they enjoyed seeing him. SUPER ACT AS DOULAT #SIKANDARKHER SIR â Sudhanshu Kumar Singh (@Sudhans74383049) July 3, 2020SUPER ACT AS DOULAT #SIKANDARKHER SIR â Sudhanshu Kumar Singh (@Sudhans74383049) July 3, 2020Daulat is a twisted character and when I watched the show, I felt that the character somewhere wanted acceptance but wanted to be unnoticed at the same time. Itâs very interesting that you noticed it and itâs time that someone is raising this point. I think he is happy in his space but the thing is that he is not equal to anybody. He is a guy who knows everything thatâs ongoing as he is continuously tracking everything. Itâs not that he wanted to be accepted, it was his job that he was doing. A person like him wants to stay in the backdrop. If you see his back story, you realize how Zorawar has done things for him and looked after his mother. He must have been young when he met Aarya. Thatâs what he is about. He is just going to do his job, come what may. He is not going to ask anything but will keep doing his chores that he has been asked to do. He is somewhere indebted to Zorawar and hence doing everything that he asks. The problem is when Aaryaâs youngest son Adi sees him killing his father (Chandarchur Singh). Now that he knows Adi has seen him, he has a certain sort of moment with him where he is trying to help the kid tackle the big trauma. He has that awareness that he has done wrong. Thatâs why towards the end, when Adi tells Aarya, this is the time he realizes that he has gone wrong and gives up his loyalty to Zorawar. As you said that your character had that compassion and did realize his wrongdoings but cut to reality, we are seeing a very different picture of humanity. Why are people not being human enough? This is a very long conversation and this is something that you might be noticing now but it has been there since humans came on the earth. We are hearing about all of this, brutality and lack of compassion, because of social media. Everything is just a click away. Human beings are so intelligent that they can be destructive. It has nothing to do with a lack of compassion and itâs how the society, in general, has become. I empathize with people who are spreading negativity and somewhere, they might be a bad place and hence they are spreading negativity. © HotStar In the current scenario, people are talking about the lobby culture in Bollywood but donât you think we as audiences are equally responsible for a certain content not working at the box office. Itâs fine with what people like. If you are calling something trashy, it might be entertaining for someone else so the content is very subjective for that matter. Itâs their choice. What might be a good quality cinema for you might be boring for someone else and they just want to do time passes on Saturday and Sunday? Everything that is creative is always subjective. But, I am glad that things are changing that thereâs space for content. The audience is allowed to watch whatever they want. Sikandar, I somewhere feel that people do have the power in their hands. In your case, you have been in the industry for a while now but itâs only Aarya that gets in the notice. Why is that so? Itâs not that you are not talented as you do give your 100% to the characters. What lacked? To be honest, everyone has their own paths. Some might reach âthereâ faster than others but I don't know where is the space I want to be at. In my case, a lot of things didnât fare well, and then, you donât get work that easily. I would go out to meet different casting directors and show my show reel. I could have taken the approach of waiting but I know I am not that successful and this wait can last forever. You have to go out and try to get work. This thought of recognition didnât bother me much as I wanted to keep trying. Aarya happened and now, I can say that the river is flowing. I am indeed glad that finally, things have started to pan out for you. You have had your fair share of struggles and in the recent video that you shared on Instagram, you said at times itâs not easy to reach out when you are going through lows. Did you also have that phase in your life? Of course, I have felt that. Itâs very natural that you would go through some low days and itâs perfectly alright. There will be days you would want to right out but then there will be days, you would want your space. There is this grey area. I have felt really low at times but I always wanted to see the brighter side of the story. Itâs easy to say but when you are going through this, itâs tougher. Thatâs a very complex situation and itâs very important to remind yourself that low will never always be low and high wonât stay as high for life. Nothing is permanent. At the end of the day, you need to keep making yourself feel light. One more thing I want to address is that people are not happy with the favouritism aspect of Bollywood. Recently, Kunal Kemmu and Vidyut Jammwal raised a point that they all need equal platforms. With two celebs speaking up, people are questioning about the Bollywood way even more and are angered with the whole situation as things are not getting better. See, the bubble will eventually burst. There are people who are friendly with a few set of people and you cannot tell them about choosing their friends. I have not got a chance to work with these biggies even after I have grown up in this industry. I can sit at home and feel completely shit about it but you have to move on. About Kunal and Vidyut, I can totally understand their point as I would have raised the same question. I will give you an example. I am sitting on a stage with Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, I will get the least amount of questions at the press conference. People want to know about them and somebody like me would get 2 questions in one and half hour conversation if thatâs the panel. I can totally understand the space they are coming from but thatâs the bitter truth. And yeh bohot hota hai, mere saath bohot hua hai. At least aap bogi pe toh ho and this prevents me from being bitter. But yes, there have been times when I wasnât invited for the promotions when they are going to a big show and then you are told that the channel wanted only two people. As I said that everyone has a path, itâs about to keep going and you will get disappointed but itâs a part of life. Itâs a very tough line and I am also figuring it out. We hope that you keep getting more ambitious projects! View the full article

  16. âParottasâ have really been having a moment on Twitter for the past couple of months. While before it was the ridiculous GTS on the food item that had people talking, this time there's a much better reason. As the spread of COVID-19 increases, the fear people had regarding it is decreasing for some reason. With so many new cases coming in every day and the country opening up, it is more important than ever to wear that face mask and protect yourself and others as much as possible. In a wholesome attempt at raising awareness about the importance of the humble face mask, a restaurant in Madurai created the Face Mask Parotta - it's basically just a âparottaâ but in the shape of a face mask. © Twitter This was the brilliant idea of KL Kumar, owner of Temple City, one of the biggest restaurant chains in the city. But, if someone isn't in the mood for parotta, there's also a 'Corona Rava Dosa'- © Twitter Or 'Corona Bonda'. © Twitter Asking the right questions. 18% gst too ? â Chris Sebastian (@chris_seban) July 8, 2020 I don't know how I feel about Paneer Masala Dosa. Update #2: A restaurant in #Madurai (much like the whole district) which is crazy about parotta, has made 'mask parottas' to raise awareness about COVID-19. Earlier, they have made a 'Tendulkar dosai' shaped like a bat and a 'Baba paneer masala dosai'ð¤ â Sanjana Ganesh (@ganesh_sanjana) July 8, 2020 It's a good idea. âNot many in Madurai wear masks but everybody here loves parotta.

  18. The pandemic has turned academic sessions into a joke as the schools have kept shut for almost four months now. Due to the on-going scenario, CBSE decided to scrap a few chapters from class 11 books. So, they ended up cutting lessons on secularism, citizenship, nationalism, and subsections like 'why do we need local governments and 'new social movements in India'. However, the teachers have been asked to elaborate on the topics that have been cut out of the syllabus but the students wonât be assessed on the same in their tests. The HRD ministry had directed CBSE to reduce at least 30% of the regular syllabus of students of 9th to 12th standard. Recently, HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal tweeted, âLooking at the extraordinary situation prevailing in the country and the world, #CBSE was advised to revise the curriculum and reduce course load for the students of Class 9th to 12th.â Looking at the extraordinary situation prevailing in the country and the world, #CBSE was advised to revise the curriculum and reduce course load for the students of Class 9th to 12th. @PMOIndia @HMOIndia @PIB_India @MIB_India @DDNewslive @cbseindia29 @mygovindia â Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) July 7, 2020 CBSE said in an official statement, âThe Heads of Schools and Teachers may ensure that the topics that have been reduced are also explained to the students to the extent required to connect different topics. However, the reduced syllabus will not be part of the topics for Internal Assessment and year-end Board Examination.â The brainchild was to delete chapters that âeither repeated or overlapped or learning outcomes related to it are being covered under other chapters.â However, people on twitter didnât find the decision of deleting these topics from the syllabus a great move and hereâs what they have to say about it- Makes sense. The @cbseindia29 board assured students in reduction of syllabus by 30%. Chapters that deal with the very pillars on which India stands have been removed, hereby destroying India's foundation. The CBSE wants to alter history based on WhatsApp forwards. â NSUI (@nsui) July 8, 2020 People outraged as the basic structure of constitution has been removed from the syllabus. Shameful, They removed the basic structure of #Constitution from syllabus The CBSE has âcompletely deletedâ chapters on federalism, citizenship, nationalism, nd secularism from d political science curriculum of Class 11 in a bid to rationalise syllabus. â Nadeem Gaur (@Nadeem_gaur92) July 8, 2020 Ouch. cbse said truly fuck secularism, citizenship AND federalism wtf â .

Those on citizenship, secularism, federalism, demonetisation and GST among others !! â smitha nair (@smitharnair) July 8, 2020 Sarcastic and true at the same time. A couple of weeks back I was discussing with my sister as to how important it is to make subjects like Pol. Science & Sociology as mandatory, specially when the voting age is 18. Today CBSE deleted subjects like democratic rights, secularism, citizenship, and federalism. Nice. â Vedant Agrawal (@VedantAgrawaI) July 8, 2020 And they are calling this rationalizing the syllabus.

  19. Today we're going to be talking about the 'Redmi Note 9 Pro'. Oops sorry, I mean the 'Poco M2 Pro' but could you tell the difference? Xiaomi's offshoot brand launched the M2 Pro with a very attractive price tag and bringing very minor updates to its global twin brother the 'Redmi Note 9 Pro'. In case you are wondering, yes the Poco M2 Pro is largely a rebranded phone with subtle changes that don't make any difference to the overall look. The phone launched for a starting price at Rs. 13,999 and comes in three different configurations. Even though POCO has been trying to reinvent itself with new phones every few months; here's why we think the Poco M2 Pro is not the phone we expected from the brand. Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There are only two noticeable differences i.e. the M2 Pro has a slightly different back with dual-tone colouring and a different laser-etched logo. There's nothing much different here, to be honest, and since Poco did not put the effort to come up with an original design; it seems fit that we do not give an original description of the phone's design either. If you want to know more about Poco M2 Pro's design; you can simply read our review of the Redmi Note 9 Pro here and just imagine the two subtle differences in your head. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla It is quite disappointing to see Poco just rebrand yet another Redmi phone, especially since the brand had a great start with the F1. Switching out the branding, adding a custom launcher and selling it as your own does leave a bad taste in your mouth. Hence, we aren't even going to give the Poco M2 Pro a score for its design since we've already done it before for a different phone. Poco fans do deserve better and the M2 Pro feels more like a hand me down phone from Redmi/Xiaomi. Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla So what else is different here? You may think that the display on this phone might be different. However, it is almost identical to the Redmi Note 9 Pro yet again. It has the same 6.67-inch fullHD+ LCD panel with a punch-hole that houses the selfie camera. It doesn't even come with a higher refresh controller like the Poco X2 to justify any form of upgrade. Yet again, since the display on the Poco M2 Pro is also identical to the Redmi Note 9 Pro, you can read more about it in detail here. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Poco M2 Pro comes with multiple lenses, including a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 5MP macro camera and 2MP depth camera for Bokeh shots. Hold on! Where have I said this before? Oh right, this is a direct quote from our Redmi Note 9 Pro Review where we've just switched the names of the phones. That's because the camera setup on the M2 Pro is also identical and we're starting to see a pattern here. Since the POCO M2 Pro uses the same sensors, same camera app and the same chipset as its twin brother, you can read our review of the Redmi Note 9 Pro's camera here. The camera performance was almost identical where it took great wide and ultra-wide camera pictures and has improved clarity in low-light environment shots. For a phone that costs as less as the Poco M2 Pro; we were quite impressed with its low-light photography; however, there is always room for improvement. We did not enjoy using the macro-lens as it had unreliable output and has the same problems as the Redmi Note 9 Pro where it would take longer than usual to focus on the subject. Having said that, Poco M2 Pro did a fair job at capturing some images which you can check out in our gallery below. Gallery Performance and Battery Life Continuing with the theme of the review, the Poco M2 Pro comes with the same hardware as the Redmi Note 9 Pro. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G chipset, 4GB or 6GB RAM, and up to 128GB of internal storage. During our testing, even the Geekbench 5 benchmark scores were quite similar where the M2 Pro scored 568 in the single-core and 1774 in the multi-core test. It is interesting to point out the Poco M2 Pro has the same single-core test as the Redmi Note 9 Pro and performed slightly better in the multi-core test. If there was a huge difference in the test scores that we would have a problem and we're happy to say that is not the case. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Poco M2 Pro performed extremely well much likes its counterpart at running games with no noticeable frame rate drops. Jokes aside, the Poco M2 Pro is a great performing phone if we set aside its rebranded roots and shouldn't pose any problems when using it as a daily driver. The Poco M2 Pro also comes with a 5,000 mAh battery and lasts just as long as the Redmi Note 9 Pro since both phones have the same capacity. You can use the phone for gaming, watching movies and videos, navigation and web browsing and still have enough battery left to last you an entire day. Having said that, Poco did upgrade one feature here as the M2 Pro now supports 33W charging which is great for people who don't like to wait too long for their phone to get charged. The phone does come with a “Mi” branded charger in the box which was not expected by the brand. Software © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The unique thing about this phone is its Android skin i.e. the Poco launcher. However, once you started setting up the phone; you will be greeted with MIUI 11 setup screen with not a single hint of it being a POCO branded phone. The skin is indeed built on top of the MIUI skin but it adds no value to the phone apart from providing an app drawer. Before you can even get into your phone; you will come across the GetApps recommended apps. Once you're setup, you will be bothered with notifications from the “GetApps” applications periodically asking you to download new apps that in our opinion is yet another form of intrusive ads. It's not as bad as Redmi phones but intrusive nonetheless. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Poco M2 Pro also comes with a bunch of pre-installed apps including some that have been banned by the Indian government. The 'Cleaner' app by Clean Master and 'Helo' still come pre-installed and haven't been removed from the phone yet. It would be fitting Poco would issue an OTA for the removal of these apps from the phone but that remains to be seen. In the case of the 'Cleaner' app; one can't even uninstall it manually as the app needs access to almost everything in your phone including your microphone. Final Verdict The Poco M2 Pro as a standalone phone is a steal if you do not like to see ads in Redmi phones but want a similar alternative. However, we are quite disappointed with the uninspired design that is essentially a copy-paste job. If you can look past its rebranding roots; the Poco M2 Pro is a reliable budget phone to get in 2020 however if you do decide to get this phone; just make sure you're not standing next to someone who already owns a Redmi Note 9 Pro.

  20. Itâs soon going to be a month since the world lost a gem of a person and a talented actor that Sushant Singh Rajput was. Talking about him in the past tense still feels too surreal, and yet given the fact that Sushant and his sudden passing has impacted so many people, fans or not, is evident from the kind of poignant discussions and debates his untimely demise has given rise to. © Facebook/Sushant Singh Rajput While his family, friends and admirers are still trying to make peace with this loss, fans have been doing their bit to keep Sushant alive amidst them in any way they can. From rewatching his movies, to sharing their memories with him and reminiscing about his life and sides of him nobody knew, they have done it all. But recently people ended up discovering Sushantâs lookalike on social media and it has left his fans bamboozled. Named Sachin Tiwari, he is a resident of Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh and looks pretty similar to Sushant Singh Rajput, especially if you compare their side profiles. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@officialtiwarisachin) With over 10,000 followers on his Instagram account, Sachin is quickly gaining recognition for sharing similar facial features like Sushant. Sachin has been sharing videos of himself lip-syncing or dancing to songs from Sushantâs films and honestly he does a rather good job at it. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@officialtiwarisachin) Talking to his social media account, Sachin wrote, âHello Friends, you people are amazing, I never expected this kind of tremendous love. Thank you so much, everyone, for being with me. I created this page so that I can share more contents with everyone.â View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@officialtiwarisachin) We know there may not ever be another Sushant Singh Rajput, but looking at Sachin in flesh and blood surely makes us miss SSR and the potential that has now been lost. For the time being let us remember Sushant through Sachinâs attempts at recreating some of SSRâs best work on-screen. View the full article
  21. With all the discussion on how only the Bollywood âmafiaâ shunned the real talent and didn't accept performances, we shouldn't be ignoring the fact that power lies in our hands as the audience. From electing the government to making a normal human a superstar, people have a lot of power. Bollywood is a ruthless industry where the competition is cut-throat and it's the audience that decides who works for them and who doesnât. Shah Rukh Khan is the 'Badshah' because people turned him into a star who will rule Bollywood one day. Looks and background doesnât matter when it comes to infusing star power in someoneâs fate. Even a movie like Happy New Year crossed 300 crores at the box office and on the other hand, a raw movie like that of Sonchirya could earn only an 8 Crore across India. It's the audience who didn't walk up to the theatres to watch such content that might have been the perfect choice for being an Oscar entry. Here's a list of the movies that the audience rejected but rather should have celebrated them because of their rich content. 1. Madaari © T-Series A film that highlights the flaws of the functioning of the government through a beautifully crafted story of love that a father has for his son was appreciated by the critics but wasn't entertained by the audience. Irrfan turned producer with this one but the release timing of the movie brought in doom for the movie as it clashed with Rajinikanth's Kabali and already successfully running Sultan featuring Salman Khan. Well, the movie does deserve a second chance and whenever you have the time, watch it on Netflix. 2. Gali Guleiyan © Extant Motion Pictures This Manoj Bajpayee movie was a masterpiece but the audience failed it completely as no one walked into the theatres to appreciate the talent this man brings on the table. Gali Guleiyan, which earned Manoj Bajpayee the best actor award at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, was shunned by our audiences. This is surely one of the best psychological dramas which evoke a sense of suspense and keep you at the edge of your seat. The movie is a portrayal of a man trapped within the walls and alleys of old Delhi and his own mind. Talking about his character, Manoj told IANS, "He is a mentally disturbed person who listens to the voice of a child who cries continuously as his father beats him and my character wants to save that child. So, in the entire film, my character tries to find that child so that he can save him." 3. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy © YRF If you actually want to celebrate Sushant Singh Rajput, start with appreciating the talent he showcased in Dibakar Banerjee's detective Byombkesh Bakshy. It is a well written story that explores the dark lanes of Kolkata which were filled with drug smugglers. "I knew that I had the resources and research. The bottom line was the authority to play the character Byomkesh. I was aware of what not to do on-screen. Filmmaking is all about what we like to do on-screen. We have attempted that in the film. I have worked very hard to perform the character," Sushant said during the trailer launch of the movie. But, the audience failed him as people hardly turned up to the theatres to appreciate this gem. 4. Sonchiriya © RSVP Movies Sonchiriya suffered the same fate as Detective Byomkesh Bakshy. The problem is that people think entertainment is only reduced to trashy content infused with raunchy item numbers and when a film that has taken an intelligent approach to capture the raw stories, the audience clearly shows no interest. The dacoit drama was extensively shot in Chambal, Madhya Pradesh, making it hard for the actor involved to keep the tempo high as it's risky to shoot in the lanes of Chambal. Even after so much blood and sweat that was invested in making the film, the audience didn't have the nerve to appreciate it. 5. Shaurya © Pen Movies This is one of the brilliantly made movies depicting the army in its truest form and had stellar actors like Kay Kay Menon and Rahul Bose in the movie but it wasn't appreciated by the audience. In one of the interviews with PTI, Kay Kay Menon spoke of the harsh reality, "I've learnt how to deal with the industry, where merit isn't sacrosanct. You have to understand this is how it is and get on with your work... I'd prefer that people put their money where the mouth is while praising me. I often say don't praise me anymore because I've got so many pats on the back that I've ended up with a backache and nothing else." 6. Kadvi Hawa © Drishyam Films Sanjai Mishra is someone who deserves way more respect than he is getting now. The movie Kadvi Hawa was appreciated across borders as it talked about the ground issues that farmers face because of climate change but when it was released in India, the audience completely skipped it, forgetting to appreciate the message that came along with the movie. Kadvi Hawa is the story of a blind, old man (played by Sanjai Mishra), who lives in the fear of his son, Mukund (essayed by Bhupesh Singh) committing suicide because of the heavy debts. 7. Citylights © Fox Star Studios Citylights is the story of a family who migrates from Rajasthan to Mumbai and the struggles they face. Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa put their heart and soul into the characters to make it look as believable as they could but again it went all unnoticed at the box office. 8. Oye Lucky Lucky Oye © UTV Motion Pictures This movie by Abhay Deol hardly earned Rs 6 crore at the box office despite the content it had to offer. It wasn't the cheap humour as in many other trashy movies but as it's said, people hardly appreciate good content, Oye Lucky Lucky Oye was bound to fail at the box office. There are more names that can be added as the list is long. All the movies that are mentioned in this list are rated more than 7 on IMDB. The only question that I want to ask is why do we fail to appreciate great content and choose trashy content instead? Think about it! View the full article

  23. Asteroids and meteors fly by the Earth quite often and some even enter the Earthâs atmosphere. However, most of the times we know when they are approaching. Scientists are usually very accurate at predicting the dates, location and even the timings of celestial events; however, that was not the case this week. © NASA An asteroid flew by Earth and Moon; however, none of the scientists or astronomers was able to detect it until two days later. The asteroid has been bestowed the name 2020 LD and was 100 metres in diameter. The asteroid was travelling at a speed of 60,826 miles per hours and was between the Earth and Moon on June 5. It was the biggest asteroid to come near Earth since 2011 and according to the European Space Agencyâs (ESA); it was only 0.8 lunar distances away. The asteroid was discovered two days later by astronomers in Hawaii as it was travelling at a speed of 60,826 miles per hour in relation to Earth. The astronomers discovered its approach was closest to earth by analysing the asteroidâs orbit. © NASA The fact that nobody noticed the asteroid is quite alarming as if it would happen to collide with Earth, it was capable of causing catastrophic damage. Almost 45 asteroids have passed by Earth this year but none of them was this close nor comparable in size. This asteroid could have caused a world-ending event similar to what we have seen in Hollywood movies had it crashed anywhere on Earth. © NASA The ESA has detected yet another asteroid dubbed as 2018 SV13 that has a chance of hitting Earth on September 22 this year. The asteroid is travelling with an impact velocity of 44,000 miles per hour. However, it isnât big enough to cause catastrophic damage. In fact, the asteroid is most likely expected to burn up in the atmosphere and produce a powerful explosion in the sky. Weâre kind of glad 2020 LD missed earth by a whisker as it was capable of causing five times the damage caused by Chelyabinsk asteroid. Last time an asteroid caused catastrophic damage was during the Tunguska event. The asteroid flattened 2,000 km2 where it caused devastation to local plants, animals and even a few buildings.

  24. Instead of getting less potent and slowly fading away, it feels like the Coronavirus is evolving like a Pokemon and it's basically telling us that we haven't even seen its final form yet. As if the year wasn't already extremely scary and frustrating, it turns out that the spread of COVID-19 could be airborne now as well. WHO has acknowledged "evidence emerging" of the airborne spread of the virus and I honestly can't think of anything worse than that at this point. © Reuters During a news briefing, Maria Van Kerkhove, technical lead on the COVID-19 pandemic at the WHO, said, "We have been talking about the possibility of airborne transmission and aerosol transmission as one of the modes of transmission of COVID-19." Speaking at Tuesday's briefing in Geneva, Benedetta Allegranzi, the WHO's technical lead for infection prevention and control, said, "The possibility of airborne transmission in public settings - especially in very specific conditions, crowded, closed, poorly ventilated settings that have been described, cannot be ruled out. However, the evidence needs to be gathered and interpreted, and we continue to support this." © Twitter So, it's not reached the worst stage yet, but it seems like the virus is on the fast track for it, though. Masks are the only thing standing between us and this virus, please people, don't remove that mask in public. We can all agree that after months, we're all done with the lockdown and the uncertainty and the virus itself, but it just seems to be getting worse and worse. And when things get tough, the only thing people can do online is laugh. 2020 literally #airborne â Urvi (@urvibarman) July 8, 2020 Even that's not possible now, apparently. #airborne Meanwhile human:- â MemeGo (@MemeG0) July 8, 2020 *Raakhi Sawant voice* "This is chitting!" #airborne Everyone to corona â Shubham Maida (@ShubhamMaida) July 8, 2020 Khelna hi nahi hai.
