‘How Much Wine Ravi Shastri Had’, Michael Vaughan Takes A Quick, Cheeky Jab At Indian Head Coach

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21 has to be one of the most memorable Test series (if not the best ever) that the Indian cricket team was a part of.  The narrative around injured players, an embarrassing defeat, an incredible comeback, everyone coming together to make that series a classic underdog story showed the true character of the young Men in Blue and ensured that the future of the team was in the right hands. Reliving the memories of the iconic clash between a hosting Australian squad completely loaded with big names and a depleted Indian side, here’s what former England skipper, Michael Vaughan had to say about the four-match series: View this post on Instagram "It was a brilliant series to watch. The Aussies pummeling them at the Adelaide Oval – 26 all out. Then Virat going back home to be next to his wife giving birth. No one gave India a chance, I don't care who you are," Vaughan, the former England captain, said while talking on Fox Cricket.  "The way that they bounced back and Ajinkya Rahane's captaincy was spectacular. And then to get to Sydney and the Aussies just pummel them for a few days. There's nothing like a last day battling out for a draw."  © AP "It's a great spectacle when a team just trying to hang in there. A little bit of banter – Ashwin taking a little bit of talking from behind the stumps. And then the Aussies arriving at the Gabba thinking that's all. They just can't get beaten at the Gabba… they’ll steamroll them," Vaughan added. 
"Throughout the whole tour, we knew Rishabh Pant was a player. We all know that he's got something very special, but I thought particularly those last two Test matches, pant came to light. It was a brilliant series. I can only imagine how much red wine Ravi Shastri must have had."  #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/Y6NY8kWGHj — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 15, 2021 We’ve seen Ravi Shastri develop a great sense of humour around people making fun of his drinking habits. After his team whitewashed England during their tour to India, Shastri spoke about the “banter” that he has with his fans and social media trolls who love to talk about what Shastri drinks and how much he drinks. .@RaviShastriOfc reacts to his memes doing the rounds #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/pNvZxKgUmM — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) March 7, 2021 "It's banter all the way. They do it to have fun. It's at my expense, but it's okay," Ravi Shastri in the post-match press conference. 
"Have a drink on my name. When you post those kinds of things, so many people have a laugh," the India coach said. "Enjoy, it doesn't affect me.”

Kangana Ranaut Has Tested Positive For COVID-19 & She Called It A 'Small Time Flu’

Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has tested positive for COVID-19 and took to Instagram today to share her news after experiences some discomfort.  © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut The Manikarnika actor shared an image of herself in a yoga posture and wrote, "I was feeling tired and weak with slight burning sensation in my eyes for past few days, was hoping to go to Himachal so got my test done yesterday and today the result came I am covid positive.”
What’s odd is that the actor called the virus “nothing but a small time flu” which got too much attention in the press.  © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut "I have quarantined myself, I had no idea this virus is having a party in my body, now that I know I will demolish it, people please don’t give anything any power over you, if you are scared it will scare you more, come let’s destroy this Covid -19 it is nothing but a small time flu which got too much press and now psyching few people. Har Har Mahadev” she said in her Instagram post. 
View this post on Instagram India has been seeing the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world this past week with record deaths caused by the virus.   It seems a bit tone-deaf for Ranaut to call the virus “nothing but a small time flu” at a time when India has been experiencing a catastrophic second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic with the death toll only soaring by the day.   Kangana has been called out in the past for not following mask hygiene in public.   © Twitter Kangana was spotted at the Mumbai Airport and at a dubbing studio without a mask where some paparazzi even called it “dumbness at its best.” 
The actor was also recently banned from the micro-blogging site Twitter after she posted a series of tweets that were in violation of the social media company’s rules and regulations.   She was found violating Twitter’s hate speech and abusive behaviour policies. Kangana has now moved her activity to Instagram and has vowed to continue voicing her opinions on the social media platform.

‘Battlegrounds Mobile’ India Could Be Using Gameplay Made In China & Krafton Isn’t Saying Much

For what it’s worth, Battlegrounds Mobile India is expected to be an India-exclusive battle royale game that is expected to launch soon.  However, it seems like the Indian version of the game may not have been built from the ground up and might be taking gameplay mechanics from the Chinese version of PUBG Mobile called Peacekeeper Elite.  Krafton has not explicitly pointed out that the game has been made from scratch for the Indian market.  © Unsplash/onur-binay In a separate 91Mobiles report, the game is expected to come with India-specific features such as a mobile number requirement from an adult, gaming time limit for 3 hours and a limit on the daily micro-transaction amount for users under the age of 18 years. 
These seem rather similar to features one can find on Peacekeeper Elite, apart from other changes the game is expected to make.  IGN India reports that Battleground Mobile India’s gameplay might be made in China, especially, considering the toned-down version of the game.  Speaking to IGN India, Daniel Ahmad, who is a senior analyst at Niko Partners, said:  “Tencent, which develops and publishes Peacekeeper Elite in China, has also added an anti-addiction system to the game as per regulations. This requires players to register with their real name and ID before they can start playing the game. If the player is under the age of 18 they will be subject to time and spend restrictions within the game. China’s game regulator has mandated this since the end of 2019 in an effort to curb gaming addiction among the youth.” © Tencent Games It seems like features have been directly lifted from the Chinese build of PUBG Mobile when taking Ahmad’s quote into perspective. 
Battlegrounds Mobile India is expected to launch with green blood, full-dressed characters and other adjustments that Ahmad believes might make their way to Battlegrounds Mobile India as well.  “Given the concern around the game in the country, we would expect the new version announced this week to incorporate similar elements, in addition to storing user data locally,” he told IGN India.  “However, it is still unclear whether these changes and a name change would please regulators in India as the main concern revolves around whether Tencent, a Chinese company, would still be involved in the development of the title.” © Unsplash/screen-post Krafton has been particularly gated about Battlegrounds Mobile India and its current status with India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. 
MensXP has reached out to Krafton asking about its permission status with the Indian Government. We’ve also reached out asking whether the game is using the same source code and engine as Tencent’s PUBG Mobile India.  We have not received a response from the Korean developer, as of now.  Source: IGN India,  91Mobiles

Mr World Thakur Anoop Singh On Flaunting His Muscles, Sense Of Style, & His Foray Into Films

From being trained as a pilot, to playing a vital character in one of Indian television’s most iconic shows, and then finally making his way into the Hindi film industry, Thakur Anoop Singh has really come a long way. © Thakur Anoop Singh He has been associated with a number of varied television projects such as Ramayan, Akbar Birbal, Mahabharat, Chandragupta Maurya, and movies such as Commando 2, and Rogue. © Thakur Anoop Singh But for bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts, he is in a different league altogether.  
He earned the title of 'Mr World' in 2015, when he won gold in the 'Fitness Physique' category of the seventh WBPF World Bodybuilding and Physique Championships, held in Bangkok, Thailand. © Thakur Anoop Singh Given that he is a fashion icon for many of his fans, and that he has a rather unique and suave sense of style, we caught up with him for a brief chat. 
Following are the edited excerpts: Tell us about your journey, how did you start as an actor? I was a pilot before and had just completed my training in the US. It was during the global recession from 2009 to 2011 when I decided to try myself as an actor as that was something that I felt attracted to.  I started off without even knowing where will this lead me and how will I survive. I guess it’s the blessings of my parents, the grace of God and sheer determination.  © Thakur Anoop Singh 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?
I don’t believe in this at all. I have a simple logic - when it comes to fashion or style, I consider myself to be a brand and a trendsetter, and that anything I wear gets highlighted as the trend to follow.  I believe you need to just carry what you wear with confidence! Style is how you carry your clothes and yourself.  What are some sartorial staples that every guy should have in their closet? I prefer a slim white shirt coz that goes with everything if you can’t decide on anything. Other than that, I think every guy should have a pair of white leather sneakers, blue slim-fit jeans, a black shirt, and a polo neck T-shirt.  © Thakur Anoop Singh How would you define your personal style statement?
A style statement defines your authentic self and that’s exactly how I like to keep myself, as authentic as possible! I love aristocratic colours and outfits. I like to wear pieces and outfits that ooze aristocracy and royalty.  So, that is my style statement - Keep it Regal.  Who is that one style icon that you always look up to? Why? I consider Saif Ali Khan to be a great style icon. He is royalty by birth and upbringing and it shows in his style and clothing which is very subtle yet very regal. © Thakur Anoop Singh What do you prefer to wear on a date?
A black, slim-fit shirt, black trousers, a slim belt, a pair of black patent leather shoes and a good and strong cologne.  What is that one fashion trend that you don't understand or are unable to relate to? I don’t think I am unable to understand any specific trend but I don’t know if I can carry very loose clothes or baggy silhouettes.  I love to wear tapered and shapely clothes that are stylish and accentuate my body proportions.  © Thakur Anoop Singh Who is that one historical figure that you'd love to dress up as?
I’d love to dress up as two people actually, Maharana Pratap, Bhagat Singh. What has been the best fashion advice that you've received to date? To try and include more floral prints into my wardrobe. It was actually a compliment that I got in one of my shoots!  © Thakur Anoop Singh What advice would you give someone who wants to pursue a career as an actor?
That dreams do come true but patience and perseverance is the key!  The profession tests you left right and centre. You even may have to live on very limited food in testing times till you get work.  But once your work starts speaking for you, there’s no turning back! The question is are you willing to go that far. What do you think of men using cosmetics? I think it’s absolutely normal.  Every man has a right to look good, fix the little imperfections that their skin has, and feel more confident! If cosmetics can help, so be it. © Thakur Anoop Singh Do you have a dedicated skincare routine? Tell us about it?
To be honest, I am very bad at sticking to a skin routine.  My doctor has to remind me every 2 days, asking me to apply the products she gave me, even though, I may have forgotten to actually buy it! But yes, I am careful with my face wash and sunscreen.  © Thakur Anoop Singh One historical era that you find extremely fashionable? 
I think the 1970’s from the west.  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. Hritik Roshan.  Your favourite style icon from Bollywood that you would like to work with, for a video or a film? Saïf Ali Khan, for sure.  © Thakur Anoop Singh One traditional Indian menswear item you believe every Indian man should have in his wardrobe, and why.
A white short-kurta with halved sleeves and a pair of slim-fit pyjamas and mojaris. I think it is regal and yet very stylish!  Do you prefer - Tailored Suits Or Ready-To-Wear Suits? Tailored, always. Sneakers or Boots? Boots. © Thakur Anoop Singh Traditional Ethnic Wear, Or Something Contemporary?
I am a Rajput so, traditional ethnic wear is what attracts me the most.  © Thakur Anoop Singh Multicoloured Prints or Monochrome?
Multicoloured Prints, any day. 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 than 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.

India’s Blocking Electronics Imports From China That Are Delaying Smartphone & Laptop Launches

The Indian Government has put a halt on approving the imports of Wi-Fi modules from China that are causing companies like Dell, HP, Oppo, Xiaomi, Lenovo and others to delay smartphone and other product launches in the country for months, according to a report by Reuters.  © Reuters Imports of Chinese finished electronic devices are particularly being affected, which include electronics like Bluetooth speakers, wireless earphones, smartphones, smartwatches and laptops. 
Any device that, in fact, contains a WiFi module is being delayed, according to Reuters’ sources. The report also details that the problem has persisted for a while as India’s Communications Ministry’s Wireless Planning and Coordination (WPC) arm has withheld approvals for these devices since at least November 2020.  Applications by Indian companies that import finished products from China are also awaiting approval.  In fact, more than 80 applications from firms originating from the US, China and Korea are also pending with the WPC. The pending approval suggests the Indian government is taking a tougher stance on Chinese-made products that are being imported into the country.  India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been pushing for a self-reliant country and even convinced some companies to start more of their production of electronic devices in India.  © Reuters “The government’s idea is to push companies to manufacture these products in India,” one of Reuters’ sources said. “But tech companies are caught in a difficult situation – making in India would mean big-ticket investments and a long wait for returns, on the other hand, the government-imposed hurdle on imports means a potential loss of revenues.”
India has been apprehensive of China ever since the border tensions and geopolitical issues arose in June 2020. The tensions have resulted in India banning a number of Chinese apps, and most recently have left out Chinese networking companies from conducting 5G trials in the country.  Source: Reuters

5 Talented Actors Who Are Underutilized In Bollywood Movies

Bollywood has seen many actors but only a few make a mark and rule the silver screen. We have seen many talents getting wasted in Bollywood as they just don’t get the right roles. Many actors/actresses have not even gotten a fair chance of showcasing their talent and their roles in the films are so average that the audience is unable to see their real potential. 
Now, this is majorly because all hero roles are given to the actors who have a monopoly in the industry. However, the trend is changing now and underrated actors too are making their niche in Bollywood.  Here’s a list of 5 talents of Bollywood who were underutilized in almost all their films-  Rahul Bose View this post on Instagram Rahul Bose is a classic example of ‘Bollywood doesn’t know what to do with him.’ He was seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne do. However, apart from a few handful of roles, the industry couldn’t properly utilize his talent, and it's extremely heartbreaking.   Chandrachur Singh He was recently seen after many years in the Hotstar Original series Aarya. However, the actor did a few films in the 90s including Kya Kehna, Josh and Daag: The Fire that were well-received by the audience. 
But, we didn’t see much of him on-screen and the fairly talented actor never got his due and the recognition that he deserved.   Jaaved Jaaferi View this post on Instagram Javed made his debut in Subhash Ghai’s Meri Jung where he was seen playing the role of Amrish Puri’s son Vicky Thakraal. He was also seen co-hosting a show Boogie Woogie. Now, we all know that he has a great sense of humor and he was appreciated by all for his role in Salaam Namaste but the audience never got a chance to watch more of this actor due to lack of roles.   Riteish Deshmukh View this post on Instagram Riteish Deshmukh made a debut in Bollywood with the film Tujhe Meri Kasam which didn’t do well at the box office. However, the actor soon found his footing in the industry, and directors/producers found his comic timing to be extraordinary. But, he became a typecast for comic roles and wasn’t ever offered anything different.  He also played a role of a psycho killer in Ek Villain which showcased his skills and proved how he is just another wasted talent in Bollywood.  Mahi Gill  View this post on Instagram She made her debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D and later became a victim of getting typecast roles. Every role she has ever played is of a woman who is an alcoholic. She is a brilliant actress and the industry needs to offer her roles that’ll showcase her real talent.

Oxygen Concentrators Seized From Popular Delhi Eatery ‘Khan Chacha’ & People Are Losing Their Cool

While India is dealing with the shortage of oxygen facilities in the hospitals, several cases of hoarding and black marketing of oxygen-related equipment have surfaced amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. 
Earlier on Thursday, the Delhi Police seized 419 oxygen concentrators in a raid conducted at bar & restaurant Nege Ju and a South Delhi farmhouse. Four men were arrested in the case. And today, the Delhi Police seized as many as 96 oxygen concentrators from the popular Khan Chacha restaurant in the city's Khan Market area.  The video of the incident has been going viral on social media. Here’s the video: #WATCH Delhi Police seizes 96 oxygen concentrators from Khan Chacha restaurant in Khan Market

(Source: Delhi Police) pic.twitter.com/odWPtvQJrz — ANI (@ANI) May 7, 2021 Khan Chacha is owned by the same Navneet Kalra who owns Nege-Ju where cylinders were found yesterday.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) South Delhi told ANI, “Total 524 oxygen concentrators have been recovered till now. This equipment was being sold for as much as Rs 71,000. Navneet Kalra is currently absconding and he will be called for a probe.” People have been bashing the owner for showing no empathy to people who are in desperate need of oxygen narrators.  Some even went on to say that he is close to powerful personalities in Delhi which is why he could hoard in such a manner.  People are now requesting others to not buy food from his restaurants as he has committed a pretty unforgivable crime.  © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter People like politician Omar Abdullah have come out in support of the original Khan Chacha restaurant which is run by Haji Banda Hasan his two sons.  He tweeted, "I feel sorry for poor Khan Chacha his family. First, they lost the use of their name to Navneet Kalra now they are being dragged through the mud for no fault of theirs because said Kalra was using his eateries to store concentrators allegedly for sale on the black market."

Chetan Bhagat Takes A Swing At Baba Ramdev Over Coronil & Some Folks Think It Was Uncalled For

Noted author Chetan Bhagat has always been active on social media, but his views, of late, seem to have landed him smack dab in the middle of controversies. 
The author has been attacking the government for a while over the vaccination shortage in the country.  And now, he has trained his guns of Baba Ramdev in regards to his medicine, Coronil. He tweeted, “Funny haven't seen even one tweet saying - need Coronil urgently.” © Instagram/Chetan Bhagat For the unversed, Ramdev's Patanjali Research Institute’s protective kit- Divya Swasari Coronil kit, which consists of Ashwagandha, Giloy, Tulsi, Kakda Singi, Rudanti, and powerful minerals, was launched last year. 
Later, in a tweet, the WHO South-East Asia wrote, "WHO has not reviewed or certified the effectiveness of any traditional medicine for the treatment of COVID-19". Coming back to Chetan Bhagat’s tweet, looks like some people did not agree with the tone of his tweet.  A Twitter user wrote, “Bhai chetan hogya ab buss karr. You have millions of followers instead of doing ye sab at this moment, Twitter pe logo ki help karo yaar, Let ppl tag you when they need Oxygen/ Icu beds/ambulance & all you need to do is RT and tag the concerned person. Apne bhi yehi kar rahe hai.” © Twitter/Chetan Bhagat People asked him not to drag Baba Ramdev into his arguments for no reason and they found his tweet in bad taste. © Twitter/Chetan Bhagat © Twitter/Chetan Bhagat © Twitter/Chetan Bhagat One of the users gave it back to Chetan by sharing an article that mentioned how Coronil tablets are out of stock at chemists and pharmacy stores across the country, even in major cities such as Delhi, Gurgaon, and Bengaluru.

4 Times ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’ Made ‘Jokes’ Only Adults Could Understand

If you are a 90s kid and spent a memorable amount of your time watching Cartoon Network, you have not only heard of the hit show Dexter’s Laboratory but have sat through all of its seven years of run time. And while you remember the show for the small ingenious kid inventing new things in his lab and his Dee Dee screwing up everything around him, you might have overlooked a couple of ‘jokes’ and references in the show simply because you were too young to understand.  Here are four times Dexter’s Laboratory made ‘jokes’ only adults could understand: Dad’s Trophy - Nuclear Confusion © Cartoon Network Studios Dee Dee steals the power source to Dexter’s laboratory which could lead to the extension of humanity as we know it but instead of simply handing over the source to his baby brother, Dee Dee decides to make a treasure hunt out of the whole fiasco.
While most of the clues are safe enough for kids to understand and have fun, one stands out from the crowd. In the episode, Dexter visits his neighbour’s house and after looking around everywhere for clues, accidentally catches a glimpse of the lady who happened to bend down at the exact moment. At the back of her hips, it’s written “Dad’s Trophy”. In all fairness, Dee Dee literally wants Dexter to check out their father’s actual trophy but the joke becomes absolutely clear now that we are “wiser”. Dexter Hires An Adult Dancer To Replace Dee Dee…? - Dee Dee and The Man Trying to fill the void after Dee Dee goes away in the episode Dee Dee and The Man, Dexter decides to hold auditions to replace his sister. After going through a bunch of contestants, Dexter comes across Candi and is instantly in awe of her. He makes her say Dee Dee’s favourite dialogue “What does this button do?” but wants her to say it with a lot of “passion”.  Taking a hint, Candi kneels in front of him and starts running her fingers through his hair with romantic music playing in the background and says the line rather seductively. Dexter takes a small break and once he’s back, he is soaking wet. Eventually Dexter asks Candi to dance for him and she says “50 bucks extra”. Mom Dad’s Game - Ego Trip © Cartoon Network Studios In the first few minutes of the television film Dexter’s Laboratory: Ego Trip, only the legs of Dexter’s parents can be seen in the frame with background noises of moaning and groaning can be heard. At one point, Dexter’s mom says “Honey, I don’t think it’s going to fit,” to which the dad replies “just a little more, dear.” Quickly the scene zooms out and the game mom and dad were playing turns out to be Twister. Phew, for a moment there, I thought that was a sexual innuendo. Silly me. “Flour Smuggling” - Beard To Be Feared If showing sexual content in a kids’ cartoon is not allowed, talking about drug deals should be right up there with it, right? Well, the creators of Dexter’s Laboratory found a way around that as well, by simply calling it “flour”.  Without giving away too much about the episode, Dexter ends up in the middle of a bunch of “flour smugglers”. One of them opens a pack with his knife and says “I can assure you it's 100% pure” while another rich man dips a finger in it and tests the quality.

Prince Narula Wore Chappals That Cost Only 1000 Bucks & We're Super Impressed By This Style Move

There are several TV actors who have time and again stood out because of their impeccable sense of style.  However, if there's one celebrity who never fails to impress, it is Prince Narula. Known as the king of reality shows, Prince with his outstanding style statement has always managed to turn heads.  For the unversed, he is also a sneakerhead, who never leaves his feet from looking stylish. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Recently, the television star was seen out and about in the city with his wife Yuvika. 
Though he usually wears some flamboyant sneakers, this time he banked on rather comfortable footwear. Yes, a pair of chappals or should we say the pandemic favourite footwear?  Many celebrities, since last year, have normalised the trend and owned it like a boss. Even Prince was seen wearing a stylish pair, that we couldn't take our eyes off. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani © Puma Prince is seen wearing Popcat 20 one8 Performance Sports Sandals By Puma. 
The brand makes it possible for us to lounge in style. These sandals are a perfect pick for the season. The slip-on style pair is made with synthetic upper and rubber sole. © Puma The price of these chappals is what makes it a worthy addition. 
We have seen celebrities like Arjun Kapoor or Vijay Deverakonda wearing some expensive chappals. But, these ones in question literally cost only Rs 1099.  Imagine paying like 1000 bucks for a pair of chappals. I mean, that's a steal-deal, in our opinion. © H&M © Viral Bhayani Coming to the rest of the details of his look, we also like Prince's oversized black T-shirt. 
This is H&M's heavy cotton jersey T-shirt that comes with a print motif on the front with a relaxed fit and dropped shoulders.  Furthermore, to make it stand out, he paired this number with tapered Adidas joggers. Such an outfit seems ideal for people who like to keep things basic and still look stylish. © Viral Bhayani The printed bandana mask can be called an accessory, which is going well with the rest of his outfit.
All in all, he wore a dope outfit and definitely a dope pair of chappals as well. Great job!

We aren’t fussy at all. I have performed at a lot of weddings and have witnessed all the grandeur, which is why I would prefer mine to be simple and intimate. We will host a function for the fraternity later."  Rahul Vaidya and Disha Parmar first met on the sets of his single, Yaad Teri (2019) that featured the actor. They were friends before they fell in love with each other.  However, one can't help but wonder if it is fair to target the couple for something so trivial. Let us know in the comments section below.

Some lifestyle choices and natural remedies can help support the hormones that control sperm production, which may aid the healthy development of sperm and improve sperm count. One can boost their sperm count by eating healthy, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, and reducing the intake of alcohol. 
In this article, we look at natural remedies, dietary changes, and certain supplements that may improve sperm count. 1. What are some ways by which a man can increase his sperm count? © iStock Some lifestyle modifications and natural remedies can help support the hormones that control sperm quality, which may aid the healthy development of sperm and improve sperm count.

Higher levels of folic acid also reduce the number of abnormal sperms in the semen thereby increasing the chances of successful penetration of the sperm into the egg. Bananas: Vitamins such as A, B1, and C in bananas help the body manufacture healthier and stronger sperm cells. The sperm count also depends on these vitamins. Bananas are rich in these vitamins and contain a rare enzyme known as Bromelain. This enzyme prevents inflammation as well as helps the body improve sperm quality and count. Asparagus: Asparagus is a vegetable that is high in vitamin C and has a number of positive effects on sperm. It fights free radicals as well as protects the testicular cells, paving the way for better sperm count, increased motility, and sperm quality. Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate is loaded with an amino acid named L-Arginine HCl which is proven to contribute to higher sperm count and volume. Consumption can improve sperm counts to an extent. Walnuts: Nuts are a good source of healthy fats and protein. Healthy fat is required for the production of the cell membrane for sperm cells. These omega-3 fatty acids also help boost the volume of sperm by promoting blood flow to the testicles. The arginine content in walnut contributes to the increase in sperm count. The antioxidants present in walnuts also help in removing toxins in the bloodstream. 4.

Vir Das has been on the top of his game in entertaining us with his on-point comic timing.  While we have been in a deadly pandemic for over a year now and since most of our lives have come to a standstill, Vir took this opportunity to keep his fans hooked, making the internet his stage. © Instagram/Vir Das In a recent scenario, Vir Das reacted to a Tweet in which his fan mentioned that he could be the next prime minister of India. 
The fan wrote @thevirdas for prime minister 2024. While that's a huge compliment, Vir, however, mentioned that someone else deserves the merit to be the PM of the country. Wrong number. Dial Sonu Sood https://t.co/X7otTpBPi5 — Vir Das (@thevirdas) May 6, 2021He replied to this tweet, saying "Wrong number. Dial Sonu Sood." He replied this with folded hands emoji.
As soon as Vir gave this reply, many fans came forward and agreed to Vir's statement.  Another Twitter user mentioned that someone should stand in opposition with Sonu Sood and that should be Vir Das. One user wrote "This is a very interesting point, why can't we all have Sonu Sood as our next Prime Minister? I think he will serve the post the best. The way he has reached out to every corner of the country.

He mentioned "No one has told me to go to Pakistan in about a month. Left and right are helping each other get beds. The conversation is about Antibodies and not Anti-nationals. We went from 'BOLLYWOOD IS ON DRUGS!' to literally helping each other get drugs. I'm not sure how long this version of social media lasts.

‘Punished For Press Conference’, David Warner’s Demeaned Demotion Had An Agenda Says Graeme Swann

Before the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League was suspended and the worry of unable to fly back to their homes had plagued the overseas players, the most important and controversial issue in the league was that of the SunRisers Hyderabad and David Warner. After winning just one of six matches under Warner’s captaincy, the team decided to not only take away Warner’s role as the skipper but even dropped him from the Playing XI, belittling him to a mere waterboy waiting at the boundary ropes. At this time I can't hold my tears pic.twitter.com/juIAmKzdf1 — Aryan Raj (@AryanRa84076229) May 2, 2021 However, former England cricketer and commentator, Graeme Swann feels that the demotion seems to be the product of something more than just bad form or the losing record. 
According to Swann, the decision to drop Warner from the team may have come after what he said about Manish Pandey during a press conference. "It was a harsh call in my opinion. But at the end of the day, it is a decision of the selectors to do that," Warner had said during a post-match press conference when asked about whether he was the one who decided to remove Pandey from the Playing XI after the hitter struggled at the pitch. Without Warner team is just like tea without sugar

Shame on SRH selector and franchise — Asish Kr Yadav (@asishyadavmail) May 4, 2021 Last Sunday, the official Twitter handle of the SRH confirmed that the team had indeed decided to drop Warner as the captain and have New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson carry out the role.   However, a day later, during the match between SRH and Rajasthan Royals, Warner could be seen wearing the support-staff kit while carrying bottles in his hands for the on-field players.  "It seems like a message has been given to David Warner after that press conference where he passed the buck that this is not my decision but the selectors'. Someone's not happy about it, and unhappy enough to get rid of him as the skipper and drop him from the team. It looks like punishment to me more than anything," Swann said on Star Sports.  Announcement pic.twitter.com/B9tBDWwzHe — SunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) May 1, 2021 Once the tournament resumes, possibly in the United Arab Emirates or even the United Kingdom, it would be interesting to see whether Warner still remains excluded from the Playing XI or does he make a return after sitting out for just one game.

‘Could’ve Donated More’, Haters Jump On News Of Kohli & Sharma Donating 2 Cr For COVID-Relief

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have started a fundraising campaign with the hopes of raising Rs 7 crore to contribute towards India’s ongoing struggle to battle the biggest wave of the coronavirus pandemic this world has ever seen. Quickly after the Indian Premier League was suspended, Kohli returned to his home in Mumbai, and revealed the details of their movement with Ketto, under a campaign named ‘Covid Relief For India - #InThisTogether’. View this post on Instagram “As our country battles the second wave of Covid-19, and our healthcare systems are facing extreme challenges, it breaks my heart to see our people suffering. So, Virat and I have initiated a campaign #InThisTogether, with Ketto, to raise funds for Covid-19 relief. We shall all overcome this crisis together. Please step forward to support India and Indians. Your contribution will help in saving lives during this critical time,” Sharma wrote in the Instagram caption while talking about their initiative.  However, the couple did not mention the monetary contributions that they themselves made towards the campaign and it was only after visiting the website that their names could be seen highlighted as ‘Top Donors’ with the sum amount of Rs 2 crore.  The Rs. 2 crore contribution comes following a Rs 3 crore donation that the couple had made back in March 2020 when the country was first struck with the pandemic and the first wave had just begun.  Still, many seemed to be unhappy with their contribution and wanted them to donate even more:  2 crore is nothing compared to their earning, they cud have donated more. They took just one post to earn these much money. Look at people like sonu sood and their contribution to the people who in need. — CricketFan (@Cricket80799343) May 7, 20212 crore only??? Both are starts in their field. 17 crore IPL by RcB. Atleast, should be 5 crore — NPS (@ATULKUM42569084) May 7, 2021Amazing how it takes an AUSSIE to start and the rest to follow...nothing new — Imraan (@Imraan55575634) May 7, 2021Only! — Muhammad Siraj A I (@Iam_Craaaj) May 7, 2021 Nonetheless, their fundraising efforts have already received over 2600 donors within the first couple of hours since the video was first published by the Bollywood actor with the donation amount surpassing the Rs. 2.5 crore mark.  The campaign will remain active for the next seven days and if you wish to make a contribution, you can do so by going to Ketto as well.  The proceedings from the movement will go towards the ACT Grants, which has been working towards providing oxygen, medical manpower, vaccination awareness, and telemedicine facilities during the pandemic.

Sony Is Thinking Of Redesigning The PlayStation 5 To Fix Its Stock Issues But It Will Still Take Time

Sony reported a record-breaking sales figure for the PlayStation 5, however the next-generation consoles have been facing supply problems due to semiconductor shortages. In fact, India has not received a restock of the console since its initial release in February 2021. However, it seems like Sony might already be thinking of a design change to ease the problem of supply.  © Pexels/kerde severin The potential redesign news surfaces courtesy of Sony CFO, Hiroki Totoki, who said in an earnings call that the firm was struggling to keep up with the demand of the PlayStation 5. "The shortage of semiconductors is one factor, but there are other factors that will impact on the production volume," stated Totoki. "So, at present, we’d like to aim at [surpassing] second year sales of 14.8 million, which was the second year of PS4.”
While Sony will be surpassing the second year sales target, Totoki still expressed concerns over increasing the sales figures. Totoki stated that Sony could, "find maybe a secondary resource, or by changing the design” It is worth pointing out that changing the design doesn’t necessarily mean changing the external look of the console. Since it has more to do with the semiconductors shortage, Totoki might be referring to getting new suppliers for the chips being used inside the console.  © Unsplash/martin-katler That’s precisely what a new report by Digitimes suggests as it claims Sony is indeed planning to launch a redesigned PlayStation 5 console. However, this redesign has to do more with the hardware than the outer shell of the console. The report claims Sony could feature an AMD-design, semi-custom chip based on TSMC's 6nm process node. The report also states that Sony did consider using a 5nm chip, however it was said to be “too costly.”
Production of the new PlayStation 5 could start sometime in Q2-Q3 2022 which means it would take a while for the supply problems to stabilise. As of now, there is no news whether Sony is considering any external changes to the console.  © Unsplash/charles-sims It is also worth highlighting that Sony usually features a new hardware revision in the life cycle of each PlayStation generation. For example, the PS4 received a performance upgrade with the PS4 Pro model. It could be possible that the new PS5 redesigned model might the “Pro” variant Sony might release sometime in the future.

‘IPL Must Finish’, Sourav Ganguly Shares How Much Money Will Be Lost If Season Gets Cancelled

The Indian Premier League was called off in a hurry earlier this week, when reports of at least one member of the four franchises of the tournament testing positive with the coronavirus started making rounds.  This happened despite the strict bio-bubble protocol which was installed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to ensure the safety of the players and the smooth sailing of the season. OFFICIAL UPDATE pic.twitter.com/6bW8YUYhON — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 4, 2021 With the number of positive COVID-19 cases flirting with the 4 lakh margin on a daily basis and no signs of falling anytime soon, the future of the ongoing edition of the Indian T20 league has found to be in a bit of uncertainty.  Emphasising the need for this season to finish in its entirety, BCCI President and former Team India Captain, Sourav Ganguly has revealed the kind of losses the organisers will incur if the tournament gets called off completely. View this post on Instagram "There has got to be a lot of shuffling. Only a day has passed since we suspended the IPL. We have to speak to other boards and see if a window can be made available before the T20 World Cup," Ganguly told The Telegraph.  "Lot of things are involved and we will slowly start working on them. If we fail to complete the IPL, the loss will be close to INR 2500 crore (USD 340 million approx). That is going by early estimates," he added.  View this post on Instagram The Indian cricket board stepped up while ensuring the safety of everyone who were involved in making this season a possibility, especially the overseas players who were struggling to go back home due to travel bans imposed on them by their governments to avoid bringing in the “Indian strain” of the virus to their respective countries.  Chartered planes were organised for players belonging to nations such as New Zealand, South Africa and the Caribbean while the Australians were sent to the Maldives, where they can undergo quarantine before catching a flight back home.  According to Cricbuzz, Mumbai Indians are sending their overseas players via Chartered plane and they also offered other franchise players to join them. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 5, 2021 Having said that, discussions of continuing the remainder of the season in the United Arab Emirates have already begun while the England and Wales Cricket Board have also volunteered themselves as the hosts if the BCCI would wish to bring the IPL to the United Kingdom.

Here’s How Virat Kohli & Yuva Sena Are Working Together To Bring Relief To The COVID-Affected

A day after her birthday, Indian actor Anushka Sharma thanked her fans for all the wishes that poured in but also went on to talk about how she and her husband, Virat Kohli were going to start a “movement” and asked their fans to become a part of it as well. View this post on Instagram And even though the video was important and made fans realise that arguably the most important power couple in the country, at the moment, is also making a lot of effort to help their nation get through the pandemic, no actual details were revealed.  A couple of days later, after the Indian Premier League was suspended indefinitely and the captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise, Virat Kohli made his way back home in Mumbai, he was seen in a meeting with Rahul N Kanal, a core committee member of Yuva Sena (Shiv Sena, Youth Division) with the aim to bring COVID-19 relief to the people.  Meeting our Captain...Respect and love for the movement he has started working on for COVID relief... No words just Respect and Prayers for all his efforts !!! @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/qZEQEKzgM7 — Rahul.N.Kanal (@Iamrahulkanal) May 5, 2021 “Meeting our Captain...Respect and love for the movement he has started working on for COVID relief... No words just Respect and Prayers for all his efforts !!!” Rahul wrote while sharing the pictures from their meeting on Twitter.  Earlier today, Sharma once again shared a video from her Instagram handle, this time explaining their detail in-depth and with Kohli sitting next to her.  View this post on Instagram“As our country battles the second wave of Covid-19, and our healthcare systems are facing extreme challenges, it breaks my heart to see our people suffering. So, Virat and I have initiated a campaign #InThisTogether, with Ketto, to raise funds for Covid-19 relief. We shall all overcome this crisis together. Please step forward to support India and Indians. Your contribution will help in saving lives during this critical time,” she wrote in the caption.  For days now, some of the unreasonable critics of the couple have been questioning why did they not make a monetary contribution towards any one of the numerous NGOs and government agencies that are working towards the betterment of the people under this devastating pandemic.  However, a lot of people may have forgotten that the Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma contributed about Rs 3 crore back in March, 2020 when the pandemic had first hit our country and nobody knew exactly what or how to tackle it.

People Are Drilling Holes In AirTags To Avoid Buying Accessories And It’s Probably Not A Good Idea

The Apple AirTags aren’t particularly cheap to purchase and don’t come with an accessory such as a keychain to prevent the tracker from getting lost. However, some people have found a way to get around buying an accessory by drilling a hole through the AirTag. People are drilling holes through the plastic outer ring of the AirTag so that one can pass a string or a keychain ring through the hole.  © iFixit The first images of an AirTag with a hole surfaced in the MacRumors forums where a member called smythey had drilled a hole that doesn’t look too elegant. In fact, the reason why one should not drill a hole into the AirTag is probably because it might void the warranty in the process. © Macrumors Forums According to the forum user, the AirTag was working normally even after drilling the hole. From the image, we can see that the hole was drilled through the outer circular plastic cover. The hole completely avoids the circular steel frame and the tiny PCB inside it. It seems a bit unnecessary as one small mistake could result in a useless AirTag. 
While it is a clever way to avoid spending extra on the accessories, it could cost a lot more if users are not careful. Having said that, you can always get cheaper third-party accessories for your AirTag, sometimes considerably cheaper than Apple’s offering.  © Macrumors Forums Having said that, if you are interested in actually drilling a hole in your AirTag, we recommend following the method posted by iFixit. The iFixit team was able to drill a hole without damaging the tracker and gives a good step-by-step guide on the website for you to follow.

7 Simple Things To Do To Combat Mid-Afternoon Energy Crash & Press That Reset Button

Covid fatigue, a feeling of emotional exhaustion, has become a common complaint of people across the nation right now. Now, in the face of Covid fatigue, add the mid-afternoon energy slump and one could feel their eyes already drooping, their drive to get on with the day slowly fading. The energy crash, although natural, that you experience around 2-3 pm after having a meal hits differently. It kills your motivation to work, eats into your overall productivity, and makes you want to hit the bed while the sun still shines bright outside. But, the good news is that it’s fixable. As I dread the afternoon energy crash and gear up after taking a quick ten minute walk to finish this article by 3 pm, let us together look at 7 simple ways to shake off the sluggishness of afternoon slump. Hydrate Hydrate HydrateJust in case mentioning ‘hydration’ once isn’t enough to remind you to have water throughout the day, we put three. When it comes to keeping yourselves hydrated, there is no substitute for water. Dehydration often adds to fatigue and hence it’s imperative to have enough water during the afternoon. If you find regular water boring, try making detox water using sliced cucumber, lemon, fruits, and herbs to switch things up. And if looking for some hot options, a subtle spicy kick of a cup of herbal tea would be equally good enough to bring back that motivation to work.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1028__ Grab A Quick Healthy SnackGive your body a boost of energy with a quick bite of a healthy snack.  While something sugary and processed may sound tempting and easy, it would be best that you keep from it and consider something rich in protein. Pick something that’s natural or minimally processed like yogurt, a cheese cube, a handful of nuts, or a spoonful of the ever-classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter, that will satiate your cravings and keep your energy levels high.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1482__ Make Yourself A Cup Of TeaMaking yourself a cup of tea is an immersive ritual and a great way to step away from work and reset.  The process of brewing keeps you active, alert and allows a chance to indulge in the aroma therapy of varied flavours, herbs, and spices.  It is also advisable to have a cup of tea half an hour after having your meal to kick away the sluggishness and keep you wide-eyed. Go for green tea, herbal options or stick to the classic Masala chai to perk your mood up. __ECOMPRODUCT__1483__ Stretch & Get MovingIndulging in mild exercising and stretching is the quickest way to boost your energy. Getting your blood pumping also activates your mind. Practice stretching to relax your muscles, take a brisk walk, or get on a call with a colleague to discuss the tasks at hand for the week.  You can also simply turn up the volume, plug in the air dopes, put on your go-to dance song and do a quick jig to uplift your mood and energy. __ECOMPRODUCT__1484__ Step Outside & Take Time Off ScreenGive your eyes a break, and step outside in an open space for a bit to expose yourself to the sunlight.  Exposing yourself to the sun will tell your internal clock that it’s still day-time, prepare your mind to align with your body clock and the energy slump will slowly fade away. Also, try splashing cold water on your face or simply spray some rose water to press that refresh button. __ECOMPRODUCT__813__ Prioritise Your TasksIf an energy slump in the afternoon is a pattern with you, try to utilise that time for tasks that require less mind and energy. Finish the most creative tasks that require high-energy in the morning and keep the afternoon for tasks that are more mechanical like sending out mails, updating the daily sheets, checking official groups etc.  You can also use this time to plan the second half of your day. Take A CatnapAnd if the energy crash makes you feel like you must sleep, then by all means you should. Many people find a quick nap helpful to replenish the energy and get on with the remaining day better.  But, remember to keep it short, an ideal nap time should be 20 minutes, and set an alarm because you don’t want to wake up feeling groggy with your boss’ call. The Bottomline An afternoon energy slump is only natural and has got to do with our circadian rhythm (sleep-wake) cycle that roughly repeats every 24 hours, so don’t blame yourself for feeling a sense of low energy.  Just follow these simple steps to put yourself back on track, without feeling guilty.  Explore More

7 Inexpensive Yet Priceless Ways To Thank Our Moms For A Million Things They’ve Taught Us

Patient. Kind. Brave. Beautiful. Selfless.
These five words can rightly describe every mother on this planet. Your mom is probably the only person on this earth who’ll pick up your dirty laundry and clean it without expecting gratitude in return. She’ll leave a few extra chapatis in the casserole because she knows you’ll feel hungry past midnight.  She’ll turn your negative thoughts into praises in the nick of time because she knows you so well. But most importantly, she’ll never stop loving you.   And even though she deserves to be celebrated infinitely, Mother’s day is one day you can dedicate to thanking her for a million times she stood by you.  Here are some of the priceless ways to tell her that she means the world to you. And despite all the differences, she’s your home. She’ll always be.  1. Yes Day For MomParantha and masala chai in bed. Finally, agreeing to talk to relatives. Picking her outfit for the day and washing it later. Watching Anupamaa with her. Playing board games with her. Anything your mom asks you to do, your answer is going to be yes for one day.   __ECOMPRODUCT__757__ 2. Reduce Her List Of Responsibilities...And not just for a day. Encourage your mother to take a break. Take up a few responsibilities from her like watering the plants, making her morning tea and breakfast, cleaning the clothes and dusting the rooms. In fact, surprise her by cleaning the entire house. Everyone appreciates a clean house, especially moms.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1478__ 3. Sit, Sip & Share Turn off your phone for a day and give her your undivided attention.  Teach her something new or go through your old embarrassing pictures together. Apologise for every time you’ve said something mean to her. Talk to her about her life. Gossip about your friends and relatives.  Make it a happy house. And do it all while sipping mocktails. All moms can use a chill day.   __ECOMPRODUCT__1479__ 4. Leave Surprises For HerShe would never see it coming. Hide her presents around the house and leave the discovery to her. Maybe slide a new silk saree and masks in her wardrobe, a diffuser in your living room, a watch and a grooming gift box in her dressing.  Share some hints to make it more fun and easier for her. __ECOMPRODUCT__1480__ 5. Write A Letter Or Make A VideoIf you’re a writer, go for it. Fill a journal if you can. If not, just pick up your phone, switch on the recorder and start talking. From your first smile to your recent breath, thank her for everything because without her none of it would have been possible.  Most moms hope for emotional encounters with their children and needless to say, you pouring your heart out will make her day.  To take your celebration up a notch, request her to do the same!   __ECOMPRODUCT__625__ 6. Gift Her The Fancier Version Of A Daily Use ItemLuxury is a word most moms forget with time. Remind her that she deserves a spa, a pedicure, a bath with aromatic handmade soap every once in a while.   __ECOMPRODUCT__1104__ 7. Redesign Her Room Or Kitchen She would absolutely love it! Many a times she’s cleaned and designed your room. It’s your turn now. Not only will it make her happy but it will also show her how much you know her.  Replace the old plates in the kitchen or get a new planter for your mom’s room. There’s a lot you can do if you think about it. __ECOMPRODUCT__1481__ So, What Do You Want To Do?   We pick up all sorts of things from our moms—dimples, curly hair, sweet cravings, a propensity to wake up in the middle of the night and stare at the fridge for a couple of minutes, etc. Use that power to make her feel good about herself.   Explore More
