‘Dravid To Coach Team India?’ Sri Lanka Tour Can Make Fans’ Dream Come True But With A Twist

Ever since the fight for the position of the head coach of the Indian cricket team started back in 2017 with Anil Kumble’s resignation, the squad has achieved great heights under the coaching capacity of Ravi Shastri.  Still, the majority of the fans would not blink an eye before cheering Rahul Dravid if he decided to contest for Shastri’s role in the team even today. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/eF5qVzdBRj — Anil Kumble (@anilkumble1074) June 20, 2017 However, on more than one occasion, ‘the Wall’ has openly spoken about how he was not interested in the job and even refused to come on board despite being the frontrunner for the spot back in 2007, simply because he wanted to take care of his family. But now, with the Indian Premier League suspended indefinitely, the Men in Blue look forward towards their next challenge - India’s tour of Sri Lanka, and the fans’ long-lost dream of watching Jammy coach Virat Kohli and Co. may finally be realised. According to Cricbuzz - There are talks about Rahul Dravid and staffs at NCA will be in the coaching staff for Indian team in the upcoming Sri Lanka tour for 3 ODI and 3 T20. — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) May 10, 2021 "We have planned a white ball series for the senior men's team during the month of July where they will play T20 Internationals and ODIs in Sri Lanka," BCCI president Sourav Ganguly told PTI on Monday. According to Cricbuzz, Dravid and his coaching staff from the National Cricket Academy might travel in Colombo with the rest of the roster for the three T20Is and three ODIs that are reportedly scheduled to take place between 13th and 27th July. India tour of Sri Lanka:

1st ODI - 13th July.
2nd ODI - 16th July.
3rd ODI - 19th July.

1st T20i - 22nd July.
2nd T20i - 24th July.
3rd T20i - 27th July.

- Venues to be finalised later. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 10, 2021 Now, with no information on Ravi Shastri's unavailability for the tour, it will be interesting to see how the Indian cricket team utilises Dravid’s expertise as the head of the coaching staff, who helped the U-19 Team India lift the World Cup trophy back in 2018. Dravid was trusted with the duty of the head coach of both, the U-19 team and the India A team from 2016 to 2019 before he was appointed as the Director of Cricket Operations at Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy - the primary training and rehabilitation center for our cricketers.

10 Foods That Are Popular Aphrodisiacs & Can Help Boost Your Sex Drive

It may sound like a tongue twister, but once on the tongue, an aphrodisiac may help one twist, tease, and twerk better in bed.   But what an aphrodisiac really is, you may ask? Well, an aphrodisiac is a food or drug that arouses sexual instinct in a person, brings on their desire, or increases sexual performance However, in a digital age where every second sponsored ad on a wellness page claims to enhance your sex drive, it gets difficult to believe in these myriad libido-boosting drugs.  But when it comes to taking the natural route, things become far more practical, safe and believable. Here are ten natural foods that work as an aphrodisiac and boost your libido.  1. WatermelonLeave it to Harry Styles to convince you to get high on watermelon sugar, and allow us to tell you that the real rush that watermelon gives you is in your sex drive.  This summer’s favourite fruit is rich in an amino acid called citrulline which relaxes and aids blood vessels to expand much like any other drug meant to treat erectile dysfunction.  Watermelon also contains 92% water that keeps your body hydrated and hydration is often linked to sexual health and boosting libido. Have this summer fruit raw or switch things up and include it in your cocktail and let the sparks fly in the bedroom.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1502__ 2. Chocolates Chocolates have been considered as a symbol of love and passion since good ol’ times. Experts suggest that having chocolate augments a woman’s capacity to produce endorphins and enhances the mood.  Consider this hazelnut dark chocolate bar as your ultimate aphrodisiac to turn on the excitement between the sheets. __ECOMPRODUCT__831__ 3. FigsFigs have been mentioned in the Bible as one of the fruits in the Garden of Eden. Also, the story goes that figs might actually be the forbidden fruit that got Adam and Eve into trouble.  But keeping the story aside, figs actually are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols which can infuse feelings of relaxation and well being, and hence it works as an aphrodisiac. __ECOMPRODUCT__1503__ 4. GarlicGarlic has since long been considered a popular food to increase sex drive for both men and women since it contains a chemical called allicin that increases blood flow to the sexual organs. Try using garlic as a condiment. Garnish your salad or food with garlic powder to let its distinctive flavour kick in and do its magic later that night. __ECOMPRODUCT__1504__ 5. Saffron & HoneyA glass of saffron milk before bed can be your secret to having a more pleasurable and healthy sex life. This expensive spice is often used as a remedy to help treat depression, calm the mind and reduce stress.  And a recent study has shown that saffron also has potential aphrodisiac properties. The study observed that men who consume saffron regularly get better erection and women who consume saffron experience higher levels of arousal and increased lubrication. Consider taking a spoonful of saffron honey to get the benefits of two aphrodisiacs in one. Because honey did we tell you that honey is also an aphrodisiac?  Yes, honey regulates hormone levels and contains nitric oxide which is released in the blood during arousal. __ECOMPRODUCT__1505__ 6. Pistachios Pistachios are high in nutritional value and are best known to help lower blood pressure, manage weight and stimulate better blood flow through the body. A better blood flow aids men get better erections and hence boost sexual performance.  Keep snacking on a handful of pistachios throughout the day to become the ‘snack’ yourself.   __ECOMPRODUCT__1506__ 7. FenugreekFenugreek seeds and powder are a key ingredient in many Ayurvedic medicines as they contain anti-inflammatory and libido-boosting properties. Ayurveda backs that this herb contains compounds that the body can use to make sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone.  Consuming fenugreek can help both men and women experience better and more orgasms.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1507__ 8. ChasteberryThis fruit which may sound like something that will test your chastity, actually is used to treat infertility and for relief of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms in women. Chasteberry which is a native fruit of the Mediterranean region influences hormone levels and is often used in dietary supplements for conditions such as menopause, infertility, and menstrual problems. __ECOMPRODUCT__1508__ 9. TribulusTribulus terrestris, an annual plant that grows in dry climates is widely used by herbalists to make supplements that claim to boost testosterone in men. It is also effectively used to increase strength gains and aid in helping you get over a plateau.Tribulus has been used by some of the world’s most elite athletes, but may be used by recreational athletes as well. __ECOMPRODUCT__1509__ 10. Ginkgo BilobaGinkgo Biloba, an herbal supplement extracted from the Ginkgo Biloba tree is said to work as an aphrodisiac by helping relax blood vessels and increase blood flow to the sexual organs.  Ginkgo biloba has traditionally been used in chinese medicines to treat ailments such as depression and poor sexual performance.  It is also effective in improving memory, especially occasional mild memory problems associated with ageing.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1027__ The BottomlineAnything that’s marketed to enhance your sex drive would usually tempt anyone to give it a try. But, it’s safe to bank on the natural options available to cut down on the risk of side effects.  While taking aphrodisiacs in supplements it’s always advisable to start with small dosage and consult your healthcare provider before increasing the dose as it may interfere with other medications that you are taking. Let the sparks fly in the bedroom. Explore More

Honey Lemon Water On An Empty Stomach - Effective Weight Loss Remedy Or Myth?

Most people who have just started their weight loss journey or are planning to shed some extra kilos have this understanding that they have to eat healthy foods from now and will have to exercise hard every day in order to fit into those old clothes. It is fairly right that you have to put in some effort to lose fat from your body by building healthy and consistent habits over a period of time. However, there is a very popular advice in the world of weight loss that 'if you want to lose weight you have to drink hot honey lemon water on an empty stomach, as it helps in detoxifying your body and boosts metabolism as well.' This makes people think that honey lemon water is a must or some kind of magical drink which will burn the excess fat. The Reality - Does it really help? © istock The answer to this question in a single word is NO, absolutely not. Honey lemon water has literally nothing to do with weight loss or body detoxification, or boosting metabolism. Consuming honey lemon water on an empty stomach doesn't help in weight loss or melting fat.
It is nothing but lemon and honey infused water which holds a good amount of antioxidants, vitamin C from the two ingredients which makes it good for your immunity, and consuming water first thing in the morning helps your body start the day on a positive note with hydration. But again as said honey and lemon added to hot water have nothing to do with weight loss, it is not a magical drink that will burn your fat. So if you are someone who is consuming honey lemon water just for the sole purpose of weight loss then we suggest you better not, as it has no direct relation with weight loss. But if you want to add it to your diet for other health benefits that honey lemon water offers, then please go ahead. What are the Benefits of Honey Lemon Water? © istock Consuming water after you wake up is a good practice to indulge in as the entire night your body works to repair itself and keep you energized for the next day to go along. Consuming just water or even honey lemon water first thing in the morning is really good for your digestive system and overall health as well. Besides, as mentioned earlier, it is also a good source of Vitamin C and antioxidants.
Since most of us get so busy with our schedules the moment we get up that we barely get the time to hydrate ourselves, adding such drinks is an interesting way to make sure that you are well hydrated. But if you are solely or mainly consuming it assuming it will melt your fat magically, unfortunately that is not going to happen. Conclusion- Fat Loss Remedy or Myth? © istock As mentioned, hot honey lemon water is a good source of antioxidants and vitamin C, which can surely help elevate your health by boosting your immune system and adding a good number of antioxidants to your body. But it has zero relation with weight loss or fat loss and won't add any fuel to the fat-burning capability of the body.
The only way your body will lose its stored fat is when it would burn more calories than you are feeding it over a period of time, which is also called the state of being in a calorie deficit. No detox drinks, detox water, or any magical herbal drink can directly make you lose weight. Eating healthy and nourishing foods according to what your body requires, exercising or being active every day, and having a good sleep routine will help you to shed extra kilos from your body.

5 Surprising Health Benefits Of Watermelon & Why It Should Be A Part Of Your Summer Diet

Watermelon is one of the most popular summer fruits out there because of its refreshing and delicious taste. It contains only 30 calories per serving of 100gm along with a good amount of vitamin C, vitamin A, and various essential electrolytes. Till now you may have consumed this appetizing fruit for its taste without knowing the health benefits it offers. Therefore in this article, we will talk about five health benefits that watermelon offers.
1. Keeps you Hydrated © istock Watermelon is about 92% of water which is why you feel so refreshed after eating it. Not only is it a good source of water but also some essential electrolytes. Eating watermelon helps your body to replenish all the water lost due to sweating in summers. You can preferably consume watermelon as a snack/midmeal or as a pre-workout food as well. You can even season your watermelon with some rock salt/black pepper/chat masala as well.
2. Watermelon is Good for Your Heart © istock Adding watermelon to your diet has been shown to improve cardiovascular health. This is due to the presence of Lycopene which is a carotenoid that is found in watermelon and this is what gives the fruit its reddish color. Even tomatoes and red chilies have this substance, but the amount of lycopene is more in watermelon than in tomatoes. 
Lycopene helps to reduce bad cholesterol and thereby reduces the risk of developing heart-related diseases. Apart from lycopene, watermelon also has something called l-citrulline, which is an amino acid that helps improve blood flow in your body in turn improving heart health by lowering blood pressure and blood cholesterol.  3. Can Help while Losing Weight © istock When you are on a fat loss program, your main priority is to consume fewer calories than your body is burning throughout the day in order to achieve a state called calories deficit. Therefore, it becomes really important what kind of foods you are consuming in order to maintain that calorie deficit as eating any calorie-dense foods over a limit can hamper your weight loss program. 
In such a situation, watermelon can be your best friend, as this delicious fruit is not just healthy but also very low in calories. You just get about 30 calories per 100g of watermelon, hence consuming about 200g of watermelon will ensure that your taste buds are satisfied while keeping you full and satiated. Hence if you are someone who is planning to shed some kilos, having watermelon mid-meal or at any time of the day will make the process easier. 4. Good for Nerve Functioning © istock Watermelon is a rich source of potassium that can be beneficial in regulating nerve function. In more simple terms, it facilitates electric impulses and messages. Lower intake of potassium in the human body can cause numbness and fluid imbalance in the cells. 
So if you are suffering from any kind of cramps in your body, then this could be due to the low levels of potassium in your body. Hence adding watermelon can help your body meet its potassium requirement for the day as you will get about 112mg of potassium per 100g of watermelon. 5. Rich in Nutrients © istock Apart from lycopene and l-citrulline, watermelon provides a decent amount of vitamin C as well which helps your body repair its damaged tissues and strengthen the immune system. Just in a single bowl of watermelon, you get about 21% vitamin C of the RDA (recommended daily allowance). It also includes vitamin A, which is really beneficial for your eye health. If you talk about minerals you also get a great amount of potassium and magnesium in a serving of watermelon which is really important for cell functioning.
© istock BottomlineWatermelon is nature's candy which is not only delicious but offers some great benefits for the body as well. Therefore, adding a bowl of watermelon during summers is the best way to keep your body hydrated and your taste buds satisfied as well.

AirTag Jailbroken For The First Time And It Could Be Used For Phishing Attacks By Hackers

The Apple AirTag has already been hacked by security researchers even though it launched almost ten days ago. We’ve already seen people trying to drill holes into the tracker to avoid buying accessories, however, now something more serious has been discovered. A security researcher was able to hack the accessory and modify its NFC URL for lost mode.  © onur-binay-unsplash According to 8Bit, a German security researcher Stack Smashing tweeted that he was able to “break into the microcontroller of the AirTag” and modified elements of the item tracker software.
“A microcontroller is an integrated circuit (IC) used for controlling devices usually via a microprocessing unit, memory, and other peripherals." According to AllAboutCircuits, “these devices are optimized for embedded applications that require both processing functionality and agile, responsive interaction with digital, analog, or electromechanical components.” The security researcher managed to jailbreak the AirTag and had the ability to decide what the device wanted to do. In the video, the security researcher modified its NFC URL and compared it to a normal AirTag to show how it works. The regular ArTag opens the FindMy website, however the modified tracker could open any URL, which could be used for phishing attacks and other nefarious purposes.  © Twitter_Ghidraninja It is still unknown whether Apple will be able to fix this problem or implement a server-side blocking mechanism to prevent the AirTag from sending targeted users to custom URLs or prevent modified AirTags from accessing the Find My Network. If you’re wondering how it works, check out the video below that shows the comparison between the two AirTags. 
Built a quick demo: AirTag with modified NFC URL

Sure, the script was pathetic and didn’t make any sense but the comic timing of almost every character in the film was on-point.  Arshad Warsi played the role of the main lead's best friend but he managed to catch the eye of the audience. Dhananjay Rajput in Asur This was for sure one of the best performances of his career. And also this was Arshad’s first-ever web series. He played the role of a CBI officer and he stunned us all with his extraordinary performance.  Babban in Ishqiya In this film, Arshad played the role of a criminal alongside Naseeruddin Shah. The film was a black comedy and was an extremely experimental role for Arshad and also he was loved by his fans in this particular role.  What do you think?

5 Times Indian Celebs Engaged In Verbal Spats On Live Shows & Raised Eyebrows

From award ceremonies to Bollywood chat shows hosted by celebs, there’s a lot of glamour that comes along with the industry but at times, on such shows, some actors end up getting in trouble for rubbing other stars the wrong way. 
We all know that somewhere these award ceremonies and chat shows might be scripted but sometimes, it so happens that the celebs do lose their cool. Here are 5 incidents that have happened in the past where celebs have engaged in verbal banters: 1. Neil Nitin Mukesh Gives It Back To Shah Rukh Khan & Saif Ali KhanIn one of the Filmfare award shows, Neil Nitin Mukesh lost his cool and we also might have been offended if we were in his position.  Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan cracked a joke focusing on Neil's name and the actor gave it right back. In the video, he can be heard saying, “That is an insult for me actually. It’s not right that... I think you haven’t seen my father sitting out here also. I think it is ridiculous on both of you all to ask a question like this. I personally find this an insult. I think you guys just need to shut up.” 2. Salman Khan, Arijit Singh & Mithoon’s Show DownerThis verbal spat did give fodder to many gossipmongers. When Salman was hosting the Star Guild Awards back then, Arijit Singh won an award for his track Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2.  Salman mocked him for sleeping during the award show and Arijit gave it back by saying, “Aap logon ne sula diya yaar.” It did affect Salman who made fun of the song saying that such songs are meant to make people sleep.  In the same show, Singer-Composer Mithoon won an award for his composition for the same track and when he was giving his acceptance speech, the Bodyguard actor interrupted him and pointed out a piece of paper that was stuck to the composer’s backside.  Salman also went on to say that his singer was sleeping and to this, Mithoon responded to the actor that it was bound to happen as the evening is dull due to Khan’s long speeches. Mithoon’s response didn’t go down well with the superstar who replied saying, “Chal jaa. Nikal yahan se” to which the composer said, “Sir, main aap se nahin darta.”  An eyewitness told TOI, “Salman’s prank backfired totally. He looked very flustered. This was the last thing he expected. Nobody challenges Salman Khan like that in public. Seeing that the situation was snowballing into an ugly incident, Salman went up to Mithoon and hugged him lightly.”  3. Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Verbal War With Sajid KhanIn 2009, Sajid Khan was the host of an award show. During the awards night, he made fun of Harman Baweja's acting skills which triggered Ashutosh Gowariker.  Back then, Ashutosh was working with Harman Baweja in What's Your Rashee? When Ashutosh was called on stage to receive an award for Best Film for Jodhaa Akbar, he couldn't help but lash out at Sajid for his remarks.  Ashutosh Gowariker said, "I don't like one thing that film industry is made fun of at such award nights. I feel it ridicules the award itself. On the one side, I am feeling very happy that I received an award for the best film. But I don't think the demeanour of the award night has been at a good standard. No offence Sajid and Farah [Khan]. Personal remarks can also be made by me. Fun can be made even by me."  4. Kamal R Khan’s Heated Argument With Ali Asgar & Suresh MenonDuring the Zee Gold Awards, host Ali Asgar and Suresh Menon handed the Lifetime Achievement Balti Award to KRK. This irked the actor as he took it and threw it on the floor.  Before throwing it on the floor, he lashed out at the hosts saying he was not a TV actor and these awards were meant for those who acted in TV serials.  Kamal Khan gave a tongue-lashing to the show hosts saying they were "Do Rupaye ke Joker". After the heated argument, he walked away from the ceremony.  In a telephonic interview from Dubai to India TV, Kamal Khan said, “This was sheer foolishness. I threw away the Golden Balti, but I did not insult anybody.” 5. Ritesh Deshmukh’s Verbal War With Sajid KhanRiteish Deshmukh and Sajid Khan have been friends for a long time but in one of the director’s shows that he hosted, he ended up upsetting the actor.  Sajid took a dig at the actor’s sexual orientation and Ritesh simply walked out of the show. When Sajid asked Riteish if he was gay, the livid actor said, “What sort of a question is that Sajid? First, you call me for your chat show, and then ask me such stuff,” said Riteish. What do you have to say about it? Let us know in the comments section below.

Abhilash Thapliyal AKA ‘SK Sir’ From ‘Aspirants’ Opens Up About His Take On Fashion & Style

Without a doubt, one of the key highlights of 2021 will be the series Aspirants.  Whether cracking the UPSC exams has ever been your aspiration or not, the show is mesmerisingly relatable. Its characters are very finely etched, and the actors, great performers.  Without a doubt, it is one of the best web series we have had this year. © Abhilash Thapliyal One such performer is Abhilash Thapliyal, who plays the character of SK, one of the central characters for the series. You might also remember him as the guy from the “MufflerMan” series.
© Abhilash Thapliyal Apart from being a highly talented actor, he’s also a well-known radio jockey, who has hosted some of the most highly awarded & popular radio programmes that we have in India.
What you wouldn’t know is that the man has a great sense of style. We caught up with the man and had a chat, about what fashion entails for him, and what does style mean to him.  Edited excerpts:Tell us about your journey, how did you start as a content creator? I started as a radio jockey, and you always have these constraints in your traditional media platforms.  When it comes to social media, you can do a lot of political commentaries, and that is something that excites me, to create intelligent humour. Social media has that kind of an audience.  Depending on the kind of content you create, you will always find your kind of audience. That’s how MufflerMan and all the other characters I have played, started.  © Abhilash Thapliyal There’s this perception that men do not need to be fashion-conscious and that only a few men have an intrinsic style that they are born with and need to stick with. Do you agree?
This is a major gender bias that we need to deal with.  This perception is completely incorrect, and as far as being intrinsically stylish or fashionable, that has got nothing to do with men particularly, it is the case with women as well.  Whether or not you’re fashionable, has got nothing to do with your gender. This is a perception that needs to be broken. © Abhilash Thapliyal What are some sartorial staples that every guy should have in their closet?
I can’t pass a generic statement on that, but for me, shirts and T-shirts in black, and white, and some blue denims, are must-haves. How would you define your personal style statement? Until recently, I was very confused about my style statement. I did a photoshoot, challenging the objectification of women, as in reversing the objectification.  That’s when I realised that comfort has to be the priority, at least for me. Before that, I was very conscious of wearing T-shirts or sleeveless stuff, but I have accepted myself the way I am.  For me, comfort will always be the priority. © Abhilash Thapliyal Who is that one style icon that you always look up to? Why? 
I don’t have icons in mind, for anything, be it performances, acting, or style. I do, however, appreciate anyone and everyone, who’s comfortable in their own skin. What do you prefer to wear on a date? My wife and I do go on dates, but she picks my outfits, as well as the menu, so this is a question to my wife, and not me. What is that one fashion trend that you don't understand or are unable to relate to? I have been very open to ideas and thoughts in general, and the same is the case with fashion.  And because you’re open to things and open to experiments, it becomes easy to digest trends that people think are weird. That way, you’re non-judgemental to fashion and ideas. Who is that one historical figure that you'd love to dress up as? I would love to dress up as Jawaharlal Nehru. Even now, his sense of style remains very contemporary.  At the same time, I will say that I also loved the confidence with which Mahatma Gandhi carried his dhoti & lathi. It had a lot of swag. He owned it completely.  Combining Gandhiji’s Confidence with Nehurji’s style would be a lethal combination. © Abhilash Thapliyal What has been the best fashion advice that you've received to date?
This is something that at times, most of us forget. You need to be comfortable being in your skin, while trying to create a statement for yourself, especially in the entertainment industry. What advice would you give someone who wants to pursue a career as an influencer and content creator? There are certain filters that you need to keep in mind, always. Relatability is one.  At times you start creating a distance between yourself and your audience and start getting into spaces that are very impractical. So your ideas, thoughts and styles need to practical, relatable, and viable. What do you think of men using cosmetics? I don’t understand, why do we even need to ask these question in today’s time? We are living in a free world, and we have the freedom to choose whatever we want, whatever we wear, what we want to eat.  Whether someone wants to use cosmetics or not is a very personal choice, regardless of the gender, the person belongs to. © Abhilash Thapliyal Do you have a dedicated skincare routine? Tell us about it?
My skincare routine is very random. At times, I abide by whatever advice I get, for a couple of weeks, then I forget about them completely.  I often ignore how my skin looks and feels, whether they’re properly hydrated or not. I want to be a bit disciplined about skincare. One historical era that you find extremely fashionable?  Bollywood in the 1990s. We laugh at it right now but just look at the confidence with which people would wear those prints, shades and styles. One celebrity who can teach everyone else a lesson or two on how to pull off the Indian aesthetic elegantly, when it comes to menswear. I think it has to be Saqib Saleem. He carries himself with great poise and confidence. He is a guy to watch out for. © Abhilash Thapliyal Your favourite style icon from Bollywood that you would like to collaborate with, for a video?
For style, it will have to be Arjun Rampal, simply because of the way he carries himself. He can be wearing the most basic jeans, and a T-shirt, and yet, look extremely stylish. One traditional Indian menswear item you believe every Indian man should have in his wardrobe, and why. A white Kurta. You can pair it with anything - pyjamas, denims, even trousers. Do you prefer - Tailored suits or ready to wear suits? I am a thin chap, so tailored suits. © Abhilash Thapliyal Sneakers or Boots?
I tend to go for things that are comfortable, so it has to be sneakers. Traditional ethnic wear, or something contemporary? Both, but if absolutely I have to choose something, I would go for something contemporary. Multicoloured Prints or Monochrome? Monochrome, for they work better for me. As much as people like to bash social media, there’s no denying the fact that a large chunk of our lives is being shaped by it. What better way to really gauge this phenomenon by the rise of influencers over platforms like YouTube and Instagram? Indeed, the world has become one small ‘gram’. As a series ‘Influencing The ’Gram’ seeks to explore how social media influencers changed the way we think of fashion over the decade, and how for most of them, even though they consider themselves to be ardent renegades, fashion and style contribute immensely to their online personas.

‘Inexcusable’: Top US Medical Body Criticizes PM Modi’s Actions During Second COVID Wave

A hard-hitting editorial published in the US medical journal The Lancet said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “actions in attempting to stifle criticism and open discussion during the crisis are inexcusable.” © Reuters The publication also criticised India’s vaccination programme saying that the message that COVID-19 was essentially over caused the slow down of the vaccination campaign. 
The Lancet also called the policy "botched" and "falling apart” at the central level. The journal also noted that the Government shifted course without even discussing the change in policy with states.  The journal says that India must restructure its response to the rise and success of that effort depends on the government owning up to its mistakes. The journal called for responsible leadership and transparency, and “implementing a public health response that has science at its heart.” Source: The Lancet

‘Nothing Happened’, David Warner & Michael Slater Water Down Rumours Of Bar Fight In Maldives

With the Indian Premier League now suspended due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the country, most of the overseas players have successfully returned to their respective countries. However, the Australian contingent of cricketers, coaching staff members and commentators who flew in for the tournament are still in transit after their government banned them from taking a flight back home within 14 days of living in India. Cricket Australia CEO: been working with BCCI/IPL to repatriate plyrs, suppt staff, umpires, commentators "as quickly and safely as possible" out of India.

Range of options: Maldives or Sri Lanka — Peter Lalor (@plalor) May 5, 2021 As a result, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had to make arrangements for their temporary stay in the Maldives,  where they would spend the mandatory 14-day period before they can go back home. It has not been more than a week since the Aussie contingent made it to the island-nation and rumours of a physical exchange between the recently-revoked SunRisers Hyderabad captain, David Warner and commentator Michael Slater are already making headlines. First reported by The Daily Telegraph the incident was rumoured to take place inside the Taj Coral Resort in the Maldives where the pair are staying. if davey warner punches michael slater in an empty bar does it make a sound? — holte end holdings (@charmada) May 8, 2021 Both sides were extremely quick to play down the reports, however. Slater, a former Australian opener, had reportedly sent a text message to senior journalist Phil Rothfield quashing the rumour. "There is absolutely nothing to the rumour mill Buzz. Davie and I are great mates and absolutely zero chance of (having) a fight," foxsports.com.au quoted Slater as saying in a text message. On the other hand, one of the top batsmen of the current Australian roster, Warner also said something similar.  "There has been no drama," he said. "I don't know where you get these things from. Unless you were here and have got concrete evidence you can't write anything. Nothing happened," Warner added. Michael Slater said him and David Warner are great mates and there's absolutely zero chance of having a fight. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 9, 2021 Both Slater and Warner were in news in the final hours before the 14th edition of the IPL was suspended. Slater, who had already moved to the Maldives at his own expense a few days before the entire roster flew there, was constantly firing jabs at his Prime Minister Scott Morrison for taking away their right to go back home. The SRH franchise’s decision to take away Warner’s captaincy and drop him from the Playing XI ahead of their match against the Rajasthan Royals, had millions of Indians, both Indian and international, come together and support him as a player and a leader.

China’s Uncontrollable Rocket Crashes Very Close To Maldives & NASA Called It Highly Irresponsible

The out-of-control Chinese rocket that was tumbling to earth finally crashed landed in the Indian Ocean today.   Most of its components were destroyed upon re-entry into this atmosphere, however, it was still a very irresponsible mission by China’s space agency.  © CCTV Debris from Long March 5B now lies west of the Maldives archipelago, according to the coordinates of the point of impact. 
Space-Track, space monitory agency also confirmed that the rocket has indeed crash-landed. "Everyone else following the #LongMarch5B re-entry can relax. The rocket is down. You can see all relevant information and updates here on Twitter/Facebook, so there is no need to keep visiting the space-track dot org website," posted Space-Track on Twitter. © VisitMaldives The odds of the rocket hitting populated areas was quite low as most of Earth’s surface is covered by water. However, due to the uncertainty of the rocket’s orbital decay and China’s failure to issue stronger reassurances, some researchers called the mission highly irresponsible.
The Long March 5B rocket weighs about 21 metric tons and is 100 feet long which would make it one of the largest objects to ever reenter the Earth’s atmosphere.  NASA Administrator Sen. Bill Nelson released the following statement Saturday regarding debris from the Chinese Long March 5B rocket: “Spacefaring nations must minimize the risks to people and property on Earth of re-entries of space objects and maximize transparency regarding those operations. “It is clear that China is failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris. “It is critical that China and all spacefaring nations and commercial entities act responsibly and transparently in space to ensure the safety, stability, security, and long-term sustainability of outer space activities.” A controlled re-entry would require the rocket to fire thrusters in the opposite direction of travel which would, in turn, slow down the object.  It would be enough to have the rocket follow a predetermined trajectory and land in a remote area or ocean. This reduces the chances of debris impacting populated areas.  It’s clear, Chinese officials did not make necessary preparations for a controlled reentry of the Long March 5B rocket.

For The Very First Time, Everyone Can Watch & Listen To NASA’s Ingenuity Drone Flying On Mars

NASA has shared a video that not only contains the video of the Ingenuity drone flying above Mars but is also contains audio. 
This will be the first time everyone will be able to hear the sounds of the zipping drone through the martian air. In fact, it is the first time a spacecraft on another planet has recorded sounds from another spacecraft.  © NASA_JPL-Caltech_ASU_MSSS The Perseverance rover which carried the drone to Mars was also nearby and managed to capture video of each of the helicopter’s four flights. 
But for the fourth flight, the microphone on the Perseverance rover was on and it captured the ghostly hum from 262 feet away.  © NASA_JPL-Caltech_ASU_MSSS If you want to hear it for yourself you will have to turn up the volume to hear it clearly. The most dominant sounds in the video are the rumble of the wind which is blowing across the open plain. 
You can hear the helicopter if you pay close attention. The loudest sound of the Ingenuity can be heard when it flies across the camera’s field of view.  "This is a very good surprise," David Mimoun, the science lead for the Perseverance rover's microphone, said in a press release. "We had carried out tests and simulations that told us the microphone would barely pick up the sounds of the helicopter, as the Mars atmosphere damps the sound propagation strongly. We have been lucky to register the helicopter at such a distance. This recording will be a gold mine for our understanding of the Martian atmosphere.” © NASA_JPL-Caltech_ASU_MSSS In order for the sound to be heard, scientists had to isolate the sound of the rotor blades by reducing the volume of frequencies above and below the noise of the drone. 
The Ingenuity's rotor blades spin at 2,500 rotations per minute in order to take flight in the thin Martian air. That is five times the speed of a passenger helicopter on earth.  Ingenuity flew 16 feet off the ground and flew south for about 436 feet. The drone captured images of the Martian surface along the way. The drone then stopped, hovered and flew back to its landing area. The drone reached a speed of 3.5 meters per second, a new record for the Ingenuity.  Both the Perseverance and Ingenuity are making history as both spacecraft are responsible for many firsts.  In addition to capturing sound from another spacecraft nearby, the Ingenuity is also the first drone to make a controlled flight on another planet.   Source: NASA

Here’s Why The Award-Winning Korean Hit Movie ‘Minari’ Needs To Be On Your Must-Watch List

After receiving love and appreciation across the globe, Minari- the Korean movie that swept the globe in 2021 is all set to capture the Indian audiences on 11th of May on Prime Video. © A24 Here are 5 reasons why Minari needs to be on your must-watch list:
It Collected Every Major Award © A24 A favourite of the 2021 award season, Minari was enlisted for 6 Academy Award nominations including a nomination for Best Picture as well as 6 BAFTA awards and garnered a Golden Globe for the best Motion Picture category.
Youn Yuh-jung won the Oscar and the BAFTA for the Best Supporting Actress. A Relatable Plot About Hardwork, Passions & Dreams  © A24 A tender and sweeping story about home is where the heart is, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in the United States from South Korea, in search of their own American Dream.
Named after a Korean herb, Minari is a tender, funny, evocative ode to how one generation of a family risks everything to plant the dreams of the next and how they hope they can make their dreams come true in a strange land.  © A24 While in its basic outlines Minari might seem to be a story we know—a tale of immigrants making a go at their own vision of the American Dream—director Lee Isaac Chung brings a fresh and illuminating take.
Within the film’s at playful, powerful and candidly detailed family remembrances comes a larger story: the impact of the journey on a new generation of migrants.   © A24 Minari first came into focus for Lee Isaac Chung when it hit  him just how much he yearned to tell his young daughter about where he came from, what it took for his parents to  come to America, and what family—in all its messiness but  also its mysterious grace notes—means to him. 
Starring Steven Yeun, Yeri Han, Alan S. Kim amongst other, you can stream Minari on Prime Video from May 11 onwards.

5 Hit Malayalam Movies With Original Storylines That Teach Bollywood How To Not Rely On Remakes

If you are someone who has grown up watching Bollywood movies, you might have realized that it’s time that the industry branches out more, at least in terms of originality. 
A lot of Bollywood filmmakers have been sticking to the done-to-death formula of making remakes and it feels like the creativity has completely drained, which is why we want the industry to learn from other regional cinemas that have been creating original pieces which are simply amazing. © RD Illuminations Well, it’s time to put Bollywood on the backburner for a bit and venture into Malayalam cinema as they have released some movies in 2021 that people have fallen in love with. 
People have been talking about these movies and have been appreciating the content they are bringing to the table: 1. Joji © Prime Video The movie has been garnering praises from every nook and corner. Cinema lovers have been amazed by the plot of the movie and have been appreciative of the fact that the makers weaved the storyline with what’s happening around in the country. 
The film is inspired by Shakespearean tragedy, Macbeth, but the makers made sure that it had an original story attached to it.  Fahadh Faasi’s power-packed performance has also become the talking point and people have been raving about it.  “The film’s narrative is not a direct adaptation of Macbeth. We were deeply inspired by it and we were trying to set something inspired by Macbeth in today’s scenario,” Faasil told PTI in a Zoom interview from Kochi.  2. Irul © Netflix The film received a mixed response as few people loved it while others labelled it as a damp squib. 
Well, the movie sure gets bonus points for its original concept. “A dark rainy night, an empty house, a stranded couple, and an unknown man. A sleek game of the cat and the mouse starts playing on, as the three of them find a dead body in the basement,” read the Netflix synopsis of the movie.  Fahadh Faasil stunned everyone with his performance in this movie too. Besides Fahadh Faasil, Soubin Shahir and Darshana Rajendran have played important roles in the film. 3. The Great Indian Kitchen © Mankind Cinemas If you have seen the movie, you would agree that it’s a brilliant attempt at smashing the patriarchy. It’s also one of the most loved and critically-acclaimed films this year. 
The movie has been praised for exploring the dehumanizing nature of patriarchy and how it chains Indian women to the kitchen.  “Through this film, I want to convey that women need freedom in the house as well as outside,” director Jeo Baby had told PTI at the time of the film’s release.  The movie also highlighted the stigma associated with menstruation. If you go by IMDB ratings, the movie has 8.3 ratings. 4. Vellam © Central Pictures. This is also one of the recommendations that people have been giving on social media and have been appreciating the plot. 
The movie explores the story of Jayasurya who plays the role of an alcoholic and how his habit turns out troublesome not only for him but his family.     Some on social media even claimed the movie should be nominated for the National Award. 5. The Priest © RD Illuminations Mammootty’s horror thriller was the first hit of Malayalam cinema at the box office this year. 
The movie has received positive reviews from the film fraternity and critics for its storyline. The official synopsis of the movie on IMDb reads, "A priest and a police officer are trying to solve a set of mysterious suicides. As their investigation closes in, they discover another crime with even farther-reaching consequences."     People praised his character of Father Benedict and have been recommending the movie to all cinema lovers.  Have you seen all of these movies? If not, try and explore them because there’s a world beyond Bollywood.

Before her suspension from Twitter, the actor tweeted, “Everybody is building more and more oxygen plants, getting tons and tons of oxygen cylinders, how are we compensating for all the oxygen that we are forcefully drawing from the environment? It seems we learnt nothing from our mistakes and catastrophes they cause #Planttrees.”

7 Bollywood Celebrities Who Refused To Do Kissing Scenes On-Screen For Solid Reasons

While watching a movie, most of us tend to get pretty invested in the characters, especially if it's a love story.  However, the sizzling chemistry that we sense on-screen is often non-existent in real life. Thanks to the stellar skills of the actors and the camera man's dexterity, who can easily manipulate the intimate kissing scenes in such a way that we believe it's real. There are romantic Bollywood movies where the actors did not kiss each other. Here is a list of actors from the industry who have a strict no-kissing policy:  1. Riteish Deshmukh © Instagram/Riteish Deshmukh While there's nothing wrong with on-screen kissing scenes, some actors maintain their stance. 
Riteish is one such example. He was asked to do a kissing scene in Jane Kaha Se Ayi Hai which he refused to do so and has maintained the rule since.  For him, kissing is very private and isn't something he would like to showcase on-screen. 2. Bobby Deol © Instagram/Bobby Deol Bobby hasn't worked on-screen for a very long time now but even he has kept away from intimate scenes in his past works. 
The shots are taken in such a way that one would believe the scenes are real. To date, no one knows the real reason why Bobby refused to do on-screen kissing scenes. 3. Sonakshi Sinha © Instagram/Sonakshi Sinha Even Sonakshi made it pretty clear since the beginning, that she won't be comfortable doing kissing scenes with her co-stars. A scene from R Rajkumar (pool scene) is a perfect example of how ardently she follows the rule.
4. Ajay Devgn © Instagram/Ajay Devgn Ajay Devgn has given several blockbusters in Bollywood. When it comes to kissing scenes though, Ajay kept away from it, as he found it uncomfortable to do lip-lock scenes with his co-stars. 
He might have done intimate scenes but has never kissed on-screen. 5. Tamannaah Bhatia © Instagram/Tamannaah Bhatia Tamannaah Bhatia is known for her South Indian movies. 
The actress has never felt comfortable wearing a bikini on-screen. For one of Sajid Khan's film, the actress vocally said that she won't kiss on-screen or wear a bikini.  She mentioned that she is shy and has never said yes to kissing scenes. 6. Kangana Ranaut © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut Kangana Ranaut is the 'Queen' of controversies, but when it comes to her career, the actress has a very clear view that she doesn't like intimate scenes. 
This was the very reason why she also rejected The Dirty Picture. 7. Salman Khan © Instagram/Salman Khan Salman is rigid with the scripts and the scenes he does on-screen. Recently, he was seen in an intimate scene with Disha Patani for Radhe. 
Salman has always maintained a strict no-kissing policy. Hence, the scene came as a surprise to many.  The actor later made it clear that Disha was wearing duct tape for the scene and it wasn't a lip lock.
