But don’t we really know our strengths and weakness? Never mind this app will let you know one, where whoever has a grudge on you will now be able to say it through Sarahah app.

How it works.

Users download the Sarahah app to their phone or just sign up online to create an account. Then they share a link to their Sarahah account to social media and wait for the comments to come in. Now the best part of it is anyone can go to that profile and post a comment that is sent as an image to the user. Yes, your name remains anonymous. Isn’t it interesting?

Hold one! A Sarahah visitor can’t view the messages as long as the user doesn’t share them. It is certainly a private way that lets you discover your strengths and areas for improvement by receiving honest feedback, but, people are calling it a cyber bullying activity too. God knows, but enjoy it until you are not getting bullied by it.

Disclaimer: A free run to trolls, those who can’t deal with criticism shouldn’t download such an app in the first place.

A game that takes away life – Blue Whale Challenge

Is it Gaming or Murdering

A game that takes away life! A game that asks people to commit suicide! Why is it called a game, why not a murder attack? ‘Blue Whale Challenge’ the horrifyingly dangerous game that has taken at least 130 teen deaths across Russia. It is a 50-day challenge in which the administrator gives a certain task to the member to adhere to. But mind it! tasks are like horrific ones that include harming oneself, watching horror movies in the late night, waking up at unusual hours. Gradually getting more extreme like carving a specific phrase on the person’s own hand, poking a needle in the arm or leg or as dreadful as a whale.

When was it started

Originating in the year 2013, in Russia with “F57”, one of the names of the then-called “death group” of the Vkontakte (largest European online social networking service, like Facebook). Allegedly causing first suicide in 2015. Since then it has become a trend and many teenagers are getting accused of it.

Why again it is in news

Now, recently not only in Russia and UK but in India also it is believed to have taken the shape. A 14-year-old boy from Andheri, Mumbai, committed suicide and has carved a fish on his arm with a needle. His mobile phone is with the state forensic science laboratory and investigations are going on so as to find out if there was any link with the group of ‘Blue Whale challenge.’ As reported in HT, “No link so far between Mumbai teen’s suicide, Blue Whale challenge,” said Police.

But the question is why people are so harsh and what is making them take up such challenge- Is it the trend or the competition that is compelling the teenagers into killing themselves.

Police are warning people to stop doing this cruel activity with their body. Also, social platforms have taken a step ahead to stop this challenge, like Instagram has started showing users a warning when they search for pictures relating to Blue Whale. We should also look beside us and find out if any unwanted activity is happening with our friends. DustbinDubba urges you to ‘Take a challenge to stop Blue Whale Challenge!’

No more ‘Regal’ feel for Delhites

The four walls covered hall, succumbed around the buildings at Connaught Place- Regal Cinema is now putting its shutters down today, i.e., 30th March. One of the most iconic single screen theatre in Delhi will not give you the experience of buying low-cost fares or booking tickets of balcony and box. You won’t be surprised to know that its been 85 years since its being. The decision to close the doors is to give the theatre a makeover and make it a multiplex just like others in town.

Before the movies were screened, there were plays done to entertain the audience. No doubt it is a heritage landmark, which was given the shape by its English architect Walter Sykes George. Therefore we can see those curves and British times interior designs. But whatever new look it may take the feel of the interiors will never get away from our heart. We are sure there are many like us whose first reaction will be whoa!!! when they hear the news.

There are memories attached to it; thankfully we got the opportunity four days back to watch last movie Phillauri there. Although the film was shocking but the adventure to watch it in Regal with friends during the month end (cash-crunch) was an awesome feeling. It is heard that they are ending the show by screening “Mera Naam Joker.” So guys, hurry up… go… and get the Regal feel because tomorrow may never come.

Bajirao: The next banned historical movie

With the rising number of Bollywood movies on scripts taken from ancient history the amount of number of Ban’s also increased. The BAN culture is nothing new in the country and is mostly seen in the film fraternity of India.

Recently the very talked about the beauty of Deepika Padukone’s glaze in movie Bajirao Mastaani is at stake. The movie may or may not be screened depends upon censor board, as a petition has been filed seeking a ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming Bajirao Mastani. It has been alleged that the movie has distorted history relating to late king Shrimant Bajirao Peshwa and his family members. It is believed that one of the ‘Pinga’, song from the movie has disrupted the Marathi culture and their sentiments. Pinga is a dance style performed in Maharashtra and in the movie it has been portrayed as an item song on which the two actresses performs.  The case is also filed saying that the historical facts have been “altered” while portraying the late king and his wives in the film.

This is not the first time that censor board is banning the movies but earlier also historical movies have faced the same situation. When Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Jodhaa Akbar was released, people also raised fingers on the caste shown in the movie. The Kshatriya (Rajput) community in Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh protested against the movie because they believed that the film portrayed distorted historical facts as in the movie Jodha Bai was represented as a Kshatriya though she wasn’t one. However, a month later Supreme Court lifted all restrictions imposed on its screening by various state governments.

Another in the list of banned movies was Bandit Queen (1994). The Censor Board initially banned this Shekhar Kapur film due to its crude language and sexual content. Later on Supreme Court paved the way for the film’s release when the producers of the movie approached them.

By this, we come at a conclusion that Indian film fraternity is quite restricted and has created its own boundaries which don’t welcome creativity and experiments in the movies. Hence the lot of baseless, scriptless action, dramas movie were born. Every movie or documentaries that have good content and context is banned, this shows the conserved thinking of the society. We must produce and release this kind of movies more so that the narrow mindset broadens.

Amount of tolerance Everyday

 

Everyday I am tolerant to Sun as it wakes me up

Everyday I am tolerant to Water as it makes me bath even I hate it

Everyday I am tolerant to my wife’s bread toast and oats

Everyday I am tolerant to kilometres away traffic jams

Everyday I am tolerant to Boss overdose

This is the story of one individual who lives in India. Just imagine there are 1.21 billion people whom Mother India is tolerating and has never said a word against it. Have a look at the Indian version of tolerance

 

Everyday I am tolerant to the rising population

Everyday I am tolerant to the polluted air that I inhale

Everyday I am tolerant to the amount of noise that buzzes in my ear

Everyday I am tolerant to the blood that sheds on my body

Everyday I am tolerant to the garbage that locks my hair

6 ways to remain stylish this winter

What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness? So let’s welcome the cold breeze with an open arm. Give way to the cuddly and comfy warm clothes piled in the wardrobe from 6 months in search of happiness. But as the cold season is coming and you must be clueless so as what to wear while staying fashionable, here is a solution to all. You want to look stylish but at the same time you also don’t want to freeze your butt off. Then, here are few checklists that you can keep in your warm pockets.

In order to make dresses appropriate for winter, you have to have some fashion basics: leggings, tights, boots, thick socks, cardigans, and scarves.

  1. Pair your summer dress with a leather jacket or blazer, tights and booties.
  2. Adding a scarf and high boots to a long-sleeved dress can make you look elegant hot at the same time.
  3. Cardigans or sweaters can add oomph to your outfit! So go for a long cardigan, chunky knit scarf, tights, and combat boots. You can even add cute knit socks for added warmth.
  4. Be it summer or winter Denim will never apart! Stay warm in a denim jacket, pretty tights, and ankle boots.
  5. Wear a fitted sweater over your dress, and pop the collar out. This is a cute and easy preppy look.

6. Wear your sleeveless summer shift dress over a button down shirt with tights. Add a belt to make the look less bulky.

 

All these can make you look trendier in winters too. Many hate winters because they cannot wear stylish dresses. But style is something you create on your own and fashion is that you buy! So prefer to remain stylish this winter!

Believer of King size

 

Defying the general convention of star kids in Bollywood and beyond, the heart throb of billions, King Khan stands out as the brightest actor in Indian Film Industry. It would be an understatement to place Shahrukh Khan, even at the top, in the league of his contemporaries. It’s high time that we identify him among legends as Rajkapoor, Gurudatt and Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip kumar among others.

As he turns fifty, it’s amazing to look back at the path trodden by him. Starting with a mediocre debutorial, ‘Dil aashna hai’ and more of a negative role in ‘Darr’, Delhi boy has achieved everything which one can ever dream of. Talking about his film career, once acclaimed as lover boy, Shahrukh has played a variety of characters. With a series of negative roles’ touch such as Darr, Baazigar, Duplicate etc., Shahrukh khan has been a lover boy, a drama boy, a patriot and many more. It would be cliche to talk about his filmography, as whether we like or dislike him, we’ve grown up watching him onscreen and lately, offscreen.

Apart from being a versatile actor, Shahrukh is known to be a sensible, humorous and generous being in his personal life, though mildly accused of his arrogant behaviour. He has been described as a loyal husband, a great father and a true friend by his family and acquiantances.

Shahrukh currently owns his own production company Red Chillies Entertainments, managed by his wife Gauri Khan and he’s also invested in IPL and is owner of Kolkata Knight Riders.

सहवाग का सन्यास एक फैन की नजर से

सोमवार रात करीब 11 बजे फुर्सत में जब वट्सएप्प ओपन किया तो एक ग्रुप में सहवाग के शानदार करियर का मैसज पड़ा था और लास्ट में लिखा था मिस यू वीरु. मैसज पढ़कर ऐसा लगा जैसे सहवाग ने सन्यास ले लिया हो क्योंकी वो मैसेज एक फिनिशिंग मैसेज की तरह था. मन में थोडी शंका के साथ घबराहट भी हुई की क्या ये सच है? तुरंत फेसबुक ओपन किया, टाइमलाइन पर सहवाग के रिटायरमेंट की ख़बर थी. ट्विटर पर भी टॉप टेन ट्रेंड में #थैंकयूसहवाग ट्रेंड कर रहा था. सहवाग को जितना प्यार मिल रहा था, साथ में धोनी को उतनी ही गालियां मिल रही थीं.

दिल मानों टूट सा गया था, एक बहुत गहरा धक्का लगा था. क्रिकेट देखना तो सहवाग के टीम से बहार होने के साथ ही छूट गया था मगर फिर भी इक्का-दुक्का लोगों के मुंह से क्रिकेट की बात सुनाई पडती तो सहवाग की याद आ ही जाती थी. लोग कोहली की पारी की बात कर रहे होते थे मगर मन में तो बस नजफगढ़ के नवाब के चौके-छक्के ही बसे थे.

अब तक सहवाग की वापसी की उम्मीद के साथ दिल में क्रिकेट का कुछ जुनून सा बाकी था मगर अब वो भी खत्म हो गया. वहीं दूसरी ख़बर थी कि सहवाग ने अभी इसकी अधिकारिक रुप से पुष्टी नहीं की है. मन में फिर से उम्मीद की किरण जागी की शायद अभी इस बल्लेबाज का फेयरवेल मैच के रुप में एक शानदार पारी देखने का मौका मिलेगा और बहुत दिन बाद मैं मैच देखूंगा. उम्मीद पूरी थी कि जिस खिलाड़ी ने भारत को और क्रिकेट जगत को इतना कुछ दिया उसे कम से कम एक आखरी मैच खेलने का मौका तो मिलेगा. मगर पता चला की बीसीसीआई ने सहवाग की ये अपील भी ठुकरा दी, सहवाग दक्षिण अफ्रीका में होने वाली टेस्ट सीरीज में टेस्ट मैच खेलना चाहते थे मगर उनके नाम के बगैर ही टीम का ऐलान कर दिया गया.

ये ख़बर पढ़ कर स्वार्थ से भरी इस दुनिया से मन सा उठने लगा. मन में सवाल कौंदने लगे क्या बीसीसीआई के लिए पैसा ही सबकुछ हो गया? क्या कोई क्रिकेट बोर्ड दुनिया के इस महान खिलाड़ी को सम्मान के साथ विदाई भी नहीं दे सकता. फिर उसका दुनिया का सबसे बडा क्रिकेट बोर्ड कहलाने का फायदा ही क्या. क्रिकेट जगत की जिस गंदी राजनीति का शिकार सहवाग हुए उसकी परतें अब खुलने लगी हैं. क्रिकेट की दुनिया के बाहुबली सामने आने लगे हैं. वीवीएस लक्षमण, राहुल द्रविड, सचिन तेंदुलकर और जहीर खान जैसे दिग्गजों के सन्यास की यादें मन में आने लगीं. किस तरह एक-एक कर सारे सीनियर खिलाड़ियों को टीम से बहार कर दिया गया. सहवाग के सन्यास के साथ ही अगली बारी गंभीर और युवराज की नज़र आने लगी है.

बुराई पर अच्छाई की जीत के त्योहार दशहरा से पहले ही अच्छाई पर बुराई की जीत हो गई. मन में तमाम ऐसे खिलाडियों की लिस्ट सामने आने लगी जो खराब फोर्म के बावजूद लगातार टीम में बने हुए हैं. अगले ही दिन सहवाग ने भी अपने 37वें जन्मदिन के दिन अधिकारिक रुप से सन्यास की घोषणा कर क्रिकेट की दुनिया में एक विस्फोट सा कर दिया.

मन में अब सहवाग की तूफानी पारीयां याद आने लगी थी, याद आने लगे वो दिन जब सचिन, सहवाग, गंभीर क्रीज पर होते थे. याद आने लगे वो दिन जब सहवाग के आउट होते ही टीवी बंद हो जाता था और हाथ में किताब आ जाती थी. एग्जाम के बीच में भी सहवाग की बैटिंग देखना नहीं भूलते थे. उन दिनों लाईट भी बहुत जाती थी और लाईट जाते ही केबल ऑपरेटर का नेटवर्क भी चला जाता था. फिर भाग कर गली में खड़ी कार में एफएम गोल्ड लगाता था, ताकि कहीं कोई छक्का-चौक्का ना छूट जाए.

ये बीएसएनएल चौका जब कानों में पडता था तो मन झूम जाता था. पडोसी भी अंगड़ाई तोड़ते हुए कमेंट्री सुनने अपनी रेलिंग पर आ जाते थे. क्या जुनून था वो, क्या दौर था वो, क्या क्रेज था वो जो अब कभी वापस नहीं आने वाला. जिस दुकान पर टीवी में क्रिकेट मैच चल रहा होता था, वहाँ देखने वालों की भीड़ अपने आप जुट जाती थी. आजकल तो ऐसा नजारा नज़र नहीं आता. वैसे हम खुशनसीब भी हैं की हमने क्रिकेट का वो गोल्डन पीरियड देखा है जिसमें सचिन और सहवाग खेलते थे.

सचिन के नर्वस नाईनटीस के दौर में भी सहवाग अपना शतक छक्का मार कर ही पूरा करते थे. सचिन बीच बीच में समझाते भी रहते थे की धीरे खेल सहवाग मगर सहवाग कहाँ मानने वाले थे. वे तो बस इसी फिराक में रहते थे की कब चौका या छक्का मारुं. जब सहवाग टेस्ट क्रिकेट में अपने पहले तिहरे शतक के करीब थे तो उन्होंने सचिन से कहा की सर अब में धीरे नहीं खेलूंगा अब टीम भी अच्छी पोजीशन पर आ गयी है, आउट भी हो गया तो कोई फिक्र नहीं. तब 294 पर खड़े सहवाग ने अपने 300 रन छक्का लगा कर पूरा किया था.

ऐसा विस्फोटक बल्लेबाज जिसने पाकिस्तान में जाकर रावलपिंडी एक्सप्रेस की पिंडी कंपा दी थी. इस खिलाडी की एक और खासियत थी की जहाँ कोई ना चले वहाँ सहवाग चलता था. ऐसे बहुत से मौके आए जब पूरी टीम एक तरफ और सहवाग एक तरफ. वर्ल्ड कप 2011 की बात करें तो सहवाग ने वर्ल्ड कप के पहले मैच की शुरुआत चौका मार कर की, हो सकता है बॉलर पहले मैच में सहवाग की चौका मारने की इस इच्छा से वाकिफ ना हो. मगर काबिलियत का पता तभी चलता है जब सामने वाले बॉलर को पता है कि ये चौका मारना चाहता है फिर भी सहवाग हर मैच की हर पहली गेंद पर चौका मारने लगे.

सहवाग जब तक क्रीज पर रहते थे तब तक दिल की ध़डकनें बढी ही रहती थी, एक पल भी टीवी स्क्रीन से नज़र हटाना मंजूर नहीं होता था. कोई नहीं जानता था कि अगले पल क्या होगा…आऊट या सिक्स. आज हालत ये है कि टीवी में स्पोर्टस पैक की भी ज़रुरत महसूस नहीं होती. पसंदीदा खिलाडियों के टीम से बहार निकल जाने के बाद अब क्रिकेट में मन सा ही नहीं लगता. पता नहीं आजकल लोग फिक्सिंग के साये में कैसे मन लगाते हैं. जाते-जाते सहवाग से एक उम्मीद बाकी थी की कम से कम सहवाग का जलवा आईपीएल में तो देखने को मिलेगा मगर सहवाग उससे भी मना कर गए. सहवाग के अंतराष्ट्रिय क्रिकेट से सन्यास के बाद हमारे सर पर सवार क्रिकेट का भूत भी अब उतरने लगा है. सहवाग के सन्यास के बाद ही हमने भी क्रिकेट देखने से सन्यास ले लिया है. क्योंकी क्रिकेट की दुनिया में ऐसा खिलाडी ना कभी था और ना कभी आएगा.
