LGBTQ Characters That You Can’t Help Loving

We’re going to focus not only on the characters that broke LGBTQ+ ground on television and captured the hearts of viewers everywhere

It wasn’t such a long time ago that watching a character come out as LGBTQ+ on TV, or be presented as straightforwardly strange in any capacity, appeared to be uncommon. However, in 2020, it would be disliked to turn on a show and find that it just had hetero characters. That is progress, you all! Here’s a gander at the absolute best LGBTQ+ characters on TV.

That doesn’t mean the portrayal issues on TV are gone, clearly. We’re gradually (yet not rapidly enough) moving out of a period in mainstream society where it seems like each LGBTQ+ character is characterized by some sort of injury or misfortune.

Holt and Rosa, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”

We couldn’t pick just one. Though Rosa is a bisexual thirst trap for women and men everywhere, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) has been out from the show’s beginning. Plus, he’s a cop and the boss — making his gayness all the more unusual. However, the fact that Rosa is played by out bisexual Stephanie Beatriz goes a long way in making her one of the most beloved queer characters on TV. While we love all the characters on this list, the ones played by actual queer people hold a special place in our hearts. 

Cheeni from Paatal Lok

Cheeni’s character was portrayed by a real-life trans woman who through her struggles displayed the inhuman treatment of the LGBTQ+ community in the series. 

Eric Effiong- Sex Education

Eric has proudly been forthcoming about his sexuality in the series. Not only is his character quirky and colourful, but his willingness to always help his best friend made him stand out. 

David and Patrick- Schitt’s Creek

Their bond, love and moreover, their extremely ‘normal’ relationship shunned all sorts of stereotypes associated with the LGBTQIA community. Their romance made the audience cheer for them and their beautiful wedding made us cry our hearts out. 

Theo- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Netflix’s dark “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” riff has always scored big with LGBTQ representation. While Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) and Prudence (Tati Gabrielle) could have easily made this list, “Sabrina” garnered high praise from fans and critics for the way it handled Theo’s (Lachlan Watson) coming out, first as non-binary and then as a trans man.

Emily- The Handmaid’s Tale

Okay, so Alexis Bledel’s Emily doesn’t exactly count as a happy queer story, but no one gets a happy ending in Hulu’s exceedingly bleak Margaret Atwood adaptation. But positive representation she is because Emily refuses to let the oppressors of Gilead stop her from living her truth. She pays dearly for it, naturally, but she remains one of the Emmy-winning series’ most compelling characters. 

Toni Topaz- Riverdale

Yet another Greg Berlanti project, the cult hit teens are swooning over is packed with plenty of queer characters. While we Stan a wholesome boy next door like Kevin (Casey Cott), and Cheryl’s blossoming has been so lovely to watch, the pink-haired Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) rocks her leather jacket and a queer haircut like a true baby lez. It’s refreshing to see a character styled to look like an actual queer person for once. 

Callie – Grey’s Anatomy

At this point in Grey’s history, Callie is as beloved and as central to this show as Meredith and Bailey. Coming out stories are a dime a dozen now, but in 2006 it was also cool to see a coming out story from someone who wasn’t a teenager.

Oliver- How To Get Away With Murder

Not only was Connor and Oliver’s love story the angstiest OTP of HTGAWM, but Oliver’s criminal descent in the Shonda Rhimes series was epic. Oliver is also a modern-day character living with HIV and managing it just fine, which is important to see on screen.

Sophia- Orange is the New Black

Because of OITNB‘s popularity, Sophia is one of the first trans fictional characters that many people were exposed to. The show also shed light on the specific health care issues trans women face, especially when incarcerated.

Bulbbul: A Feminist Ghost With A Noble Agenda

A young girl finds freedom and expression in the most uncharacteristic fashion. She becomes the judge, jury and the executioner to all who have wronged her.  

Bulbbul on Netflix should be your next watch.

Set in 19th century Bengal, a young barely adolescent Tripti Dimri who plays Bulbbul is married off to an older zamindar Indraneil played by Rahul Bose.

Decked up as a young bride, Bulbbul enters the palatial mansion which is now her home as a meek and subdued young bride. She is violated not just by her husband but also by his younger brother Mahendra.

The film takes a leap and 20 years later Satya, the youngest brother returns to India. He is educated in London, is a man of logic and critical analysis.

“Bulbbul is horror personification of a woman scorned.”

The village is talking about a chudail who hunts men at night. She has two webbed feet and feeds on blood. Satya meets Bulbbul who is now a beautiful lady and love blossoms between the two.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CBxLZTZgvyu/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
The film plays wonderfully with flashbacks and present

 Bulbbul’s transformation is not simply the work of time but also the cruel outcome of how she survived in her new home.  While the emotional journey plays out in the forefront, the spooky presence of the chudail works its way in the background.

Setting and cinematography

The mysterious, eerie palace, dim lights and resonating voices first-time director Anvita Dutt does not shy away from using these classical horror tropes in the film. The picturesque 19th century Bengal with drawn carriages and gradually percolating English culture sets a vibrant tone of the film.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CB2OsurJciY/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
Produced by Anushka Sharma, Bulbbul takes after Pari

This is a tale of female oppression and freedom with a tinge of horror. Bulbbul and Binodini the widow are caged in the palace, abused by men, and Satya who is shown in a savior-like image only adds to the abuse. His education does not break his illusion of patriarchy. Women themselves become the means of their freedom.

What’s Wrong With Netflix India?

India has the largest online viewership in the world. Cheap data plans with inherent likeness for cinema, the scenario was perfect for Netflix to thrive. So why four years later, Netflix India is far behind homegrown OTT’s like Hotstar, Voot and even Amazon Prime?  

The expensive subscription was one major factor. Indian consumer is not one unified market. There is the urban Indian and then there is the rural India which would rather buy a cheaper pirated version than spend money on a Netflix subscription.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B_FSwJQgyYw/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Another major mistake Netflix committed was failing to understand the diversity of languages. While multiple language audience has been well exploited by other OTT’s, Netflix did not host any content except for Hindi initially. In contrast, Prime, Alt Balaji and Hotstar have produced series’ all regional languages.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B96r3E2ArK7/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

 Netflix has about 1.7 million daily subscribers. Hotstar has over 10 million viewers. Even JioTV has more subscribers than Netflix. Indian audiences may have moved on to Sacred Games and Jamtara but that does not mean they gave up their daily soaps. Since daily soaps entered the OTT world Netflix has found itself struggling even more.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B_WspNLnW8P/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Homegrown OTT is posing a huge challenge

https://www.instagram.com/p/B_otvlkAqXH/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Netflix may have an upper hand with exclusive International shows but local OTT’s aren’t far behind. Flipkart is the latest to enter the race with its own shows.

Hotstar bought rights to popular HBO shows like Game of Thrones under its service Hotstar premium. Other OTT’s have also provided exclusive services like Zee5premium and Voot Select taking the edge off of Netflix.

Apart from few successes most of its content hasn’t done well.  Mrs. Serial Killer, Drive, Betaal, Ghost Stories are streaming on Netflix and have received lukewarm reception from Indian audience.

Since its arrival to India, Netflix has been struggling with net revenues hitting rock bottom and audiences shifting to other homegrown OTT platforms. Netflix surely can’t chill in India right now!

Lesser-Known Monuments of Lucknow

0

Heritage is inherent to Lucknow. Every nook and corner, every turn is a monument with immense historical significance attached to it. Let’s walk you through some of these gems.

Take, for example, Qaiserbagh, one of Lucknow’s renowned monuments. At the time of its construction, it was one of the largest forts in the world. The fort was captured by the sepoys during 1857 Battle for Independence and thus became a symbol of resistance against the English. The British blew up the entire fort but remnants of the fort like Lakhi gate etc. can be seen in and around modern-day Qaiserbagh.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Brk30OtHmOI/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Musabagh

Inspired by La Martiniere’s Indo-European architecture, the then Nawab of Awadh Saadat Ali Khan built Musabagh. Constructed beside Gomati, the bagh and the manor were a retreat palace for the nawab. There are many stories about how the name came into being, some believe it was localization of Monsieur that became Musa but nobody knows for sure. 

https://www.instagram.com/p/BWW1fyBAr-q/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Near the monument, is the grave of legendary ghazal singer Begum Akhtar. On the road to Imam-e- Ali Rauza, a replica of the tomb of Ali is the grave of Umrao Jaan. The dilapidated condition of the grave and encroachment is one of the reasons for Musabagh’s obscurity. 

Bringing Happiness- Rifa-e-aam

Rifa-e-aam club was started by Raja of Mahmudabad to bring dissenters and supporters under one roof. Lucknow Pact (1916) was signed here. Progressive Writers Movement began here. Munsi Premchand, Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi were regulars here. The club banned the entry of any British or other European colonizer. 

Butler Palace

The palace is believed to be haunted by ghosts but there is no record of anyone ever dying in the palace. The construction began in 1905 but was left incomplete by Raja of Mahmudabad in 1921. The palace is made of white sandstone and is the only building to incorporate Islamic- Rajput style of architecture. Interestingly, the palace was declared enemy property during the Indo-Pak war in 1965!

Bibiyarpur Kothi 

Built along with Asifi Kothi, Kothi Bibiyapur is situated near Dilkusha in the cantonment area. Shuja-ud-Daula wanted to host his European guests in a European townhouse and so Bibiyapur Kothi was designed by Polier with the help of Claude Martin using neoclassical architectural techniques making it one of the most striking monuments of the city. 

Explore Lucknow and get to know the ins and out of the city, its monuments and treat yourself with a dose of untouched, lesser-known heritage.

Films With Lucknow Connect: Part I

Art, culture, and tradition have always found a home in Lucknow. The city has had a long-standing relationship with art and films, be it modern or traditional.

The city has been an inspiration to many artists, film directors, and writers and thus it comes as no surprise that Lucknow has become the most sought after destination for filmmakers. 

1940’s- 1970’s

Ashok Kumar in 1943 shot for Najma in Lucknow. Outdoor locations weren’t popular at the time but glimpses of the city were included in the film to give it a more authentic feel. 

(Chaudhavi Ka Chand)

(Still from Pakheezah)

In 1963, Rajendra Kumar and Sadhna shot for Mere Mehboob in the city although the city only makes a special appearance in it. Ironically, one of the most popular films featuring Lucknow until the 1970’s was actually never shot in the city. Pakheezah (1972) is a story of tawaif living in Lucknow and her unfulfilled love for a prominent prince of the city played by Ashok Kumar. Lucknow was recreated in Mumbai studios for the film since the ailing Meena Kumari could not travel to the city itself. 

1977- Shatranj Ke Khiladi

The story, written by Munshi Premchand is about two taluqadars of Lucknow who play chess and pass time while the city is taken over by the British. The film is iconic in so many ways. The only Hindi film directed by Satyajit Ray, Lucknow of the ’70s is magically transformed to the Lucknow of 1851.

JoJo Rabbit Is An Unusually Relatable Film: Know More

JoJo Rabbit is an unusual film that has got people debating if it’s spectacular or a failure. The film has no typical ingredient that would make it a successful film and yet, since the release the film has made noise for all the right reasons. 

The film was released on OTT platforms last week and here is why you should watch immediately. 

It’s More Than a Visual Delight

Director Taika Watiti (who also portrays the role of Adolf Hitler in the film) is known for his eccentric characterizations which make the characters relatable and empathetic. In JoJo Rabbit, he does the opposite. Young JoJo lives in Nazi Germany when the Second World War is raging on. He discovers his mother hiding a young Jew girl and contemplates turning them over to the authorities with his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler. 

The film is hilarious as it maneuvers through questions like blind fanaticism, childhood, and the development of a belief system. JoJo befriends the Jew girl Elsa and learns that Jews are not mind reading, blood-thirsty monsters he always thought they were. He sees himself as a scientist studying a new species- the Jew girl.

Waititi’s faith in the notion that a child will lead us out of ignorance may be naïve. It’s also deeply affecting. – Rolling Stone 

The Film is an Odd Juxtaposition of Extremes

It is hard to imagine the Nazis as anything but criminals but JoJo’s imaginary friend Adolf tries to humanize them making JoJo believe that not all is bad about Nazi Germany. His mother is secretly allying help to fight the Nazis but does not stop her son from believing in their propaganda. 

The film lays partway between the anti-hate- dark comedy genre. Depicting the most violent genocide in history as comical and farcical, the film  The absurdity that JoJo believes can be disregarded because well, he is just 10 but that is the only thing that separates JoJo from any other Nazi.         

A young boy’s perspective makes it humorous but it’s an uncomfortable laugh because as audience we know that the film although set in history is still relevant today.

Social Feeds Going Black? Blackout Tuesday

The music industry has called for a day-long silence today- Blackout Tuesday (2 June) for Floyd, for the countless other victims of police brutality and racial injustice.

As of late, Rihanna has been vocal about her emotions on the present fights happening over the world. “Throughout the previous barely any days, the size of destruction, outrage, trouble I’ve felt has been overpowering most definitely!

Second Wave Of Ebola Virus Begins In Africa

Virus outbreaks just don’t seem to end. Countries are finally recovering from coronavirus outbreak and while life is returning back on track in many places another more dangerous, much more volatile Ebola has returned and claimed four lives. 

Africa had reported in the lowest number of coronavirus cases but the situation overturned yesterday when The Democratic of Congo confirmed that what they initially thought was coronavirus infection is actually the second wave of Ebola pandemic

The deteriorating political stability in the country has made it difficult to launch a wide-scale prevention program which will only worsen the situation. The Alliance For International Medical Action (AIMA) has reported that the failure to launch initial containment policies will lead to a spike of cases in the upcoming days. 

“The increase in cases is due in large part to reduced accessibility to communities and to a deteriorating security situation in the region, particularly in the city of Beni, which has suffered a number of attacks in the past three weeks.”

Ebola symptoms become visible after 8 days (fever, vomiting, etc.) and early treatment is the only way to save lives. The city of Beni is approximately 600 miles from the ongoing outbreak of Ebola. 

The highly contagious hemorrhagic fever, named after the Ebola river, is thought to have originated in bats. It is spread via bodily fluids and has a fatality rate of more than 60 percent. Human contact with dead bats or non-human primate is recognized as the chief reason for the infection.

The first outbreak occurred in 1976 in South Sudan and DRC but the worst outbreak occurred in 2018 which spread from Liberia on the west coast to Uganda.  Ebola spread has been restricted by several experimental drugs including one FDA-approved rVSV-ZEBOV vaccine which was developed in December 2019

SpaceX Gets Astronauts To Space

With 2020 turning out to be an apocalyptic understatement, taking off to space seems like a good option with the SpaceX program

SpaceX and NASA successfully launched 2 astronauts into orbital space from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. After the first failed attempt, the takeoff was postponed for later to make sure it was a smooth operation this time around. 

 Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are the first to travel in space capsules the ‘Crew Dragon Capsule’ attached to aircraft Falcon 9. The astronauts have safely docked themselves on Atlantis space station and joined the space crew there.

Hurley and Behnken will stay on the ISS for anywhere between one to four months doing science experiments and helping in the upkeep of the station.  Once NASA deems it is a good time to return, the astronauts will then begin their journey back home. They will strap in and undock from the ISS.

Before it re-enters the Earth’s atmosphere, the Crew Dragon will lose its trunk. This, like the second stage, will not be returning to Earth. To prevent a crash landing, four Mark 3 parachutes will be deployed to slow down the freefalling Dragon capsule. 

The Dragon capsule was previously used as a cargo supplier by NASA. This is the first time any space agency has sent its astronauts to space in a capsule. The operation officially named ‘Demo 2’ is the final launch test for SpaceX’s human space flight program to get NASA certification for operational crew missions. 

It was the first launch of astronauts from NASA since the retirement of shuttles in 2011. NASA has paid Russian Space Program to send off its astronauts into space. Now, NASA has found a profitable alternative in SpaceX and encouraged other commercial holdings for joint collaboration. 

New Era In Space Travel

The joint venture success has paved the way for commercial private companies to enter the business of space technology. SpaceX is owned by Elon Musk who has been vocal about his dream to colonize Mars had previously sent a robot and a car to space.

The pandemic and the proceeding shutdown had put a sudden stop on the Lotus India Fashion Week that was supposed to take place in March. Since then, the otherwise bustling Indian fashion scene has been rather silent.

Digitalization Can Help the Industry in More Ways Than One

Come September, all major runways in the country will commence their showcase of upcoming styles and trends. FDCI plans to hold the first digital show in July or early August and if all goes successfully; September could bring the industry back on track.

“The business of fashion must go on and the business of fashion designers must go on and hence the show must go on. You may call it a show, but for us, it is a way of life where we not only showcase a collection by means of a fashion week, we create a platform where domestic and international buyers place orders.”

The fashion industry has been in a slump with international supply chains rupturing, shops closing down and sales tanking. Lombardy being the epicenter of COVID 19 outbreak in Italy worsened the condition.  Paris, Milan, New York and Shanghai- all major fashion centres are in quarantine.

Even in India, Mumbai and Delhi have been worst-hit by the virus outbreak and therefore, a digital fashion show is the best way to go.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CAVP4Noq3zK/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

FDCI would need to invest in technology to create the right platform that provides quality streaming and a user-friendly interface. Invitations for couture showcase have been sent out. To attract audiences, FDCI plans to include master classes on how to “dress and drape modern styles.

The aim is to get the momentum going, figure out the glitches, and resolve them before the ‘Autumn 2020’ Fashion show takes place in October.      

Lockdown Aftermath- Sleep Disorder

The lockdown hasn’t been kind to our sleeping pattern leading to a sleep disorder. And this is discomforting because nobody wants to turn up at the office door with puffy, sleepy eyes!

Lucknowites can breathe a sigh of relief; your city has been kept out of lockdown 5.0. Less number of active cases and 81% recovery rate in the district has propelled the city to open its busy lanes and business complexes for work again.

Disturbed sleeping patterns have psychological effects

Intermittent sleep or bouts of sleep at any godforsaken hour is the first symptom of sleep disorder. Anxiety could be the chief reason for sleep patterns to break down. Long hours of sleep do not guarantee rest to the mind. Anxiety can seep into your dreams and mess up your sleep.

“You could either have a problem with sleep onset — no amount of counting sheep is enough — or you could have a problem with sleep maintenance, the frequent fracturing of sleep.”

Has lockdown amplified the problem?

Staying home all day, hearing news about a pandemic that is taking away lives while there is nothing one can do is not a healthy psychological thought. Worry about job security and financial constraints due to lack of work has increased pre-existing sleeping conditions.

Staying awake beyond midnight, with eyes constantly on a screen is how half the population falls asleep and is the primary cause of General Sleeping Disorder (GAD).  Carefully cultivated routines have gone for a toss with a 44 % increase in insomnia cases, surveys are done by sleep solution based company suggest.

Overcoming GAD, is easy!

Do not go to bed stressed and avoid overthinking when in bed. Calm yourself before going to bed. Listen to your favorite music, do a bit of exercise and try to maintain a routine.  Sleep boosts immunity, enhances mood and heightens brain function.

Get 8-9 hours of sleep daily and you’re good to venture out again with a sound mind and well-rested body and avoid sleep disorder.

The great South superstar Mohanlal just announced Drishyam2 and the news couldn’t have come at a better time for the Indian cinema.

Netflix’s Newest- Betaal by SRK- Blooper Alert!

Indian history has been nothing short of horrifying at certain points and evolving a Zombie storyline from it is out of imagination! Intrigued? Check out Betaal on Netflix

After Ghoul (2017), a dystopian horror series that drew motivation for its apparition from Arabic legends, maker Patrick Graham needed to dunk his toes into a zombie story, “something, which hadn’t been done previously”. It appeared to be a cool plan to investigate redcoat zombies (undead warriors having a place with the East India Company), and dependent on this, Graham needed to discover a subject, Indian legends that would fit into it.

“I required a vampire sort of character who might be managing this military of zombies,” says Graham

His pursuit drove him to the phantom ‘Betaal’, the underlying foundations of which could be followed back to the eleventh century ‘Baital Pachisi’ in the gathering of Somdev Bhatt’s storybooks. “Clearly, Bram Stoker (creator of Dracula) himself had based the portrayal and delineation of his vampire out of the Indian soul, ‘Betaal’. I right away found that captivating. I investigated it more, read about it, and addressed a few specialists in supernatural quality and old stories. I found that it (Betaal) was likewise a divine being loved in India broadly, a large number of years back, however not any longer.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CAj9xtngbup/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Graham, who has co-composed the story alongside Suhani Kanwar and co-guided it with Nikhil Mahajan, is consistently intrigued by how everything artistic in India has its arrangement of apparition stories or frighten stories, “that implies you have an endless well of thoughts to draw around.” And yet, he is shocked that very little of that has been investigated generally in the standard ghastliness in India.

“All in all, the standard repulsiveness we find in India keeps an eye on sort of spotlight on a certain something,” says Graham, a British resident who moved to India almost 12 years prior looking for work and has now made it his home. He is glad since he is getting the opportunity to investigate such a large number of various parts of narrating while additionally finding the different societies.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/B_6rfnplRa6/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Like in Ghoul, Betaal additionally rotates around a lot of formally dressed people. “That is co-accidental,” Graham giggles as he says that after Ghoul, the main thing he needed to pitch was about a spooky house. Be that as it may, there was The Haunting of Hill House and Typewriter as of now on the blacksmith’s iron, “too many frequented houses around”.

“A great deal of the stuff I have watched growing up—Aliens and Predator—a ton of sort of kind movies that include troopers and the military has been at the rear of my head,” says Graham, including that it likewise allowed him a chance to investigate the activity, gunfire and so on.

The move from the insides to the outside isn’t the one in particular that Graham has made. While Blumhouse and Ivanhoe stay consistent colleagues in this Netflix creation, it is Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Production that is another partner for Graham. Having worked widely with the past Phantom Films and finding an incredible tutor in Vikramaditya Motwane, Graham was at first somewhat worried about walking into another creation house, not certain how Red Chillies would be. Be that as it may, he was in for an astonishment with the sort of help he got. The first occasion when he met Khan for the portrayal alongside the co-colleagues, he was amazed at the mindfulness of the on-screen character.

Tenet Trailer Out: What to Expect from the Film

Tenet- A Spy- Thriller with a time wrap! What more could you ask? Adrenaline pumping storyline that has you glued right till the end!

Christopher Nolan never disappoints and that is the reason why his next film is highly anticipated. Leave aside the fact that it has been four years since Nolan directed any project, this  film brings together Robert Pattinson, David Washington and Dimple Kapadia and it just dropped its trailer on YouTube.

Parts of the film were shot in Mumbai last year and since then the film has generated genuine curiosity around itself. The film is expected to hit the theatres in July but no confirmation has been given by the film unit so far.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CAfb3owjFl5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Decoding The Trailer

Nolan described the film as the final culmination of Dunkirk. Tenet is a high – scale spy thriller with action taking place beyond real-time. You can see David Washington shooting a rock in the trailer where the bullets simply vanish before they reappear in the gun again. It is explained as time inversion by Robert Pattinson who plays a Russian aide in the film.

The fighting sequels show reversibility of time or pre-empting what is yet to happen. So it is safe to say that the espionage game will be played in different time dimensions, going back and forth throughout the film.  This weapon is called Tenant can bend time but does it allow time travel? The trailer leaves it open for your interpretation.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CAfbSdXHY9F/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

There is definitely an Inception-like feeling to the story which has made fans hopeful of finally getting a clear cut answer that clears our doubts about the ending of the film. Was it a dream? Was it a reality? We might now know.

The India Connect

Parts of the film were shot at Colaba Causeway, Gateway of India and Grant Road. Dimple Kapadia may have blink-and-you-miss scene in the trailer; the fans expect her to have a substantial role in the film. Kapadia is shown wearing traditional Indian attire and helping Washington understand the ultimate mind bending question of future he has encountered. 

The film will release on IMAX and is shot on 35 and 70 mm. Tenet is expected to shock, stun and surprise us and we expect nothing else from the director and the film.

Fashion Week ft. Digital- A New World Order

What is the future of fashion weeks in a Zero- Contact World? The global glamour landscape is up for a major transformation

In March 2020, London Men’s Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week were cancelled. Burberry, Hermes, Chanel, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Gucci and almost all major brands cancelled their shows in different parts of the world amidst the COVID-19 scare.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CAhy2E5BLUL/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Runways at Home and Online Fashion Shows

Celebrated designers and top models are streaming their collection online. 40 of the world’s top models walked their corridors as part of “world’s first self-filmed fashion show.” The event called ‘Fashion Unite’ took place as Milan runway was closed down.

The show surpassed the expectations of the organizers and taking a leaf out from their success London Fashion Week will be held online in June. Shanghai Fashion and New York Fashion Week are expected to announce the same soon.

Fashion Collaborates with Technology

The involvement of technology in the fashion world had so far been limited. But with fashion walks getting digitized, collaborations between tech companies and clothing brands will become common. E-commerce websites which have so far not found much business in couture fashion may soon enter as market platforms.

Smaller Fashion Weeks

The lockdown has dispelled the difference between big names and lesser known brands. Fashion capitals may no longer be the go-to-destinations they have always been since all brands will be available everywhere at all times.

Online streaming of the shows will allow people a more up, close and personal haute-couture experience than simply restricting it to buying.

What are the long term effects of going digital?

It’s difficult to say the long term effects digitization will have on the industry but the ride so far has been beneficial to all parties involved. Brands now have domestic and international audience, sales have gone up and so it might be safe to say that runways will soon be a thing of the past.

Tangy Fruitiness and Flavors

In the sunnier months of the year, crisp aromas like apple and citrus organic products are ideal for kitchen and washroom. Attempt lime as it’s great equalization of the sweet and harsh somewhere close to orange and lemon. Cleansers implanted with aromas like mint are likewise great for this season. For harvest time and winter, as our cooking propensities swap plates of mixed greens for meals and bathtime is more about relieving relax time than the speedy day by day showers of spring and summer, smells, for example, ginger, cranberry or cinnamon are increasingly appropriate.

Thus, green tea has an invigorating tone about it that is urgently contemporary and superbly quieting.

With fixings like extraordinary foods grown from the ground demonstrating prevalent, many overlook the old-school intrigue of aromas, for example, pine and sandalwood.

The Joker is here to put a smile on your face

The trailer for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker delineates the character in an increasingly thoughtful light, the hero of the story instead of an unhinged rival to Batman.

Phoenix is the most recent in a long queue of entertainers who have each made the Joker their own, the character demonstrating very pliant, extending from silly prankster to “harmed” maniac.

We should investigate the Joker family tree, and see where the most likeness lies …

Cesar Romero

cesar omero joker

Romero’s senseless, droll Joker may be far expelled from his current manifestation as a scary mass-killer, yet Phoenix’s form flaunts a practically indistinguishable tasteful, obviously a purposeful tribute to Romero.

Obviously, Phoenix’s Joker has an increasingly vile appearance, helped by his conventional bazaar make-up, a visual that is difficult to separate from blood and gore films, a lot to the overwhelm of the World Clown Association

Romero’s silly depiction, be that as it may, is actually a progressively conventional form of the character contrasted with Phoenix, who is depicting the Joker in a world without Batman.

He additionally, strangely, has a completely fleshed-out birthplace story, something he partakes just the same as …

Jack Nicholson

Nicholson’s Joker shares a comparative backstory to Phoenix’s, both being ordinary men with genuine names (Jack Napier and Arthur Fleck), who, after a developmental horrible occurrence, come to possess the turned comedian persona.

Phoenix is a bombed comic who possesses the new character after mortification, while Nicholson’s Joker was a horde authority, a criminal who was physically and rationally modified in the wake of falling into a tank of perilous synthetic concoctions.

jack nicholson

Both take motivation from the comic book The Killing Joke, however, Nicholson’s Joker was given a further contort, with his Joker being in charge of executing Bruce Wayne’s folks, coincidentally making Batman.

It’s conceivable that a comparative plot point could happen in Joker, as Phoenix comes into rough contact with Thomas Wayne, whose character has supposedly been transformed from the idealistic very rich person of the funnies into a spoilt land noble, i.e., increasingly like a genuine extremely rich person.

The inspiration of Phoenix’s Joker, nonetheless, gives off an impression of being extensively like …

Heath Ledger

Ledger’s notorious interpretation of the Joker rethought the character for another age, for all time permeating the jokester with apprehension. This baffling, scarred Joker wasn’t simply unhinged; he was a psychological oppressor whose solitary plan was to spread dread and disorder.

Heath Ledger

The desolate, white skeptic who goes to viciousness demonstrated to be alarmingly judicious, and the character can, in any case, be seen on the Twitter symbols of men who erroneously see Ledger’s Joker as some sort of optimistic screw-up.

This interpretation of the character has all the earmarks of being the immediate motivation for Phoenix’s avatar, additionally a cultural outsider, expanding on that idea to see the Joker move some sort of challenge development, the members wearing jokester covers.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssA_l5t-o7o

Phoenix’s Joker reflects an incel, a man headed to kill through mortification, as opposed to a tank of comic book synthetic concoctions. The possibility of the Joker spreading his noxious belief system matches, for some odd reason, with the evil “Comedian World” image, a “Pepe the Frog” branch that encapsulates agnosticism, giggling at the apparent ludicrousness of the world.

Ledger’s tense form of the character additionally offered to ascend to an unexpected arrangement of Joker images, intended to ridicule the solitary people who relate to the character.

Which carries us to …

Jared Leto

Leto’s manifestation denotes the first occasion when that the Joker was generally ridiculed as, well, a joke, with a significant part of the web joined in scorn for the character.

Jared Leto

Covered in young tattoos, displaying a ludicrous frame of mind, Leto’s Joker is famous for the peculiar in the background tricks submitted by the entertainer, who didn’t simply remain in character during the shoot, yet allegedly sent his co-stars a progression of progressively unhygienic “blessings.”

Joaquin Phoenix additionally showed an extraordinary promise to his character all through the length of the shoot, as indicated by co-star Marc Macron, who portrayed him as “beautiful inundated in the Joker.” So much thus, that Macron didn’t get a lot of a chance to draw in with Phoenix, generally disregarding him to get into the curved personality of the character.

As Phoenix is an unfathomably capable entertainer with an assortment of extreme, convincing exhibitions in his filmography, ideally we’ll get another, intriguing interpretation of the dull bearing Ledger drove the character than the Blink 182 roadie that Leto advertised.

Things all Non-Vegetarian Friends Tell Their Vegetarian Friends

You could be on any side of this infinite debate, but here are some quips that we promise you have witnessed/spoken/endorsed, whatever.

Oh, dear Vegetarians, we sympathize with the plight you suffer on all meals when you have a bunch of ravenous non-vegetarian friends for company.

Upholding and clinging to your vegetarian choices is what makes you what you are. And the relentless onslaught of these lines does not deter you from your green food trek.

As for the chicken lovers, mutton maniacs and fish fanatics, or just te non-vegetarians, their endeavors dedicated to converting their vegetarian friends into non-vegetarians are nothing short of colossal. The persistence and determination displayed in these acts, if channelized in their careers, could possibly bag them Nobel prizes.

And of course, the statements, accusations, threats, and jibes enlisted here, will make you recall of each instance when you encountered these. Also, the staple lines that you are simply waiting to hear on each dinner/lunch plan.

1. “Ghaas-phoos wale log”

Perhaps we will never truly understand the uncanny relationship that each non-vegetarian manages to establish between non-vegetarianism and all things grassy and leafy.

2. “Moksha pana ho toh chicken khana padega”

Chicken khaogay tab samajh aayega ki life mein kya miss kar rahe ho. Your life is devoid of the best flavors. And the similar permutations of this continue. Basically, the supreme happiness of your life is supposed to stem from chicken breasts and culminate at the thigh.

3. “India ke bahar jao, sab khaane lagogay”

Another one of those conjectures that manage to puzzle and deter many faithful vegetarians is that beyond Indian borders, you are going to ultimately turn to non-vegetarian food. And vegetarians abroad go like-

Kuch Bhi

4. “Paneer tera chicken and Poha teri Biryani”

Well, non-vegetarians will never let go of any opportunity to relate the humble vegetarian food items with their flamboyant non-vegetarian dishes. At this point, it’s rather futile to highlight the fundamental difference in them. Each vegetarian has to get a mouthful of it.

Point?

5. “Bas gravy le lo”

Yeah, that one gets your eyebrows soaring. When the non-veg pieces have been swimming in that pool of spices, its automatically disqualified to go into my mouth. Plain and simple. There is no by-passing there.

Are you kidding me

6. “There is no such thing as veg biryani or kebab”

No one gets as ethnocentric as a non-vegetarian when it comes to adding the ‘veg’ prefix to its invincible food heroes. The offense level at labeling their beloved biryani and kebab as veg is way too blasphemous.

No vegetarian

7. “Bf/ Gf ko kiss karogay agay wo non-vegetarian hongay?”

A big and unwarranted point of concern for many non-vegetarian friends. They simply cannot resist poking their nose in this matter.

Non of your business

8. “Cakes kaise khate ho? Usme toh egg hota hai!”

Pinpointing at every food item that is off the list is a thrill that non-vegetarian friends have and adding to that list are cakes. No one knows what is it going to take to tell them all that eggless cakes co-exist harmoniously in this world.

9. “Protein kaise lete ho?”

Let the mystery prevail. Let them ponder to their grave how vegetarians stay alive and lead a normal life without proteins from chicken and fish. As green-lovers, they have probably resigned from the job of explaining how other food items, miraculously possesses the requisite nutrition.

10. “Ek din tumhare khane mein chicken mila dunga”

When your friends are capable of all kinds of gimmicks, this threat just comes across as too real. And a definite one to give you all goosebumps.

This August, get these Xbox and Playstation Games for Free

Dive into the frenzy of the ultimate gaming experience as Playstation and Xbox unleash some of their top games for free, just for this August

Playstation

Two strong games are free this August for PlayStation Plus endorsers. Sony is giving ceaselessly only two games nowadays, having finished the free PS3 game giveaways for PS+ supporters prior this year.

Luckily, while this is still not as much as what you get with Xbox Live With Gold (and a whole lot not as much as what you get with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate) the two games Sony is offering this month are both quality titles and altogether different from each other.

Wipeout Omega Collection

Sharp twists, stomach-agitating circles, and sheer drops – would you say you are set up for the stunning, full-throttle return of WipEout? Pressed with all the substance from WipEout HD, WipEout HD Fury and WipEout 2048, Omega Collection highlights 26 reversible circuits, 46 one of a kind ships, a huge amount of game modes and a blend of new and great music tracks.

Take out the challenge with an assortment of weapons while tearing through the air to probably the most important tunes in computer game dashing. Regardless of whether you’re blasting past a companion in the split-screen two-player mode or leaving any and all individuals in the residue by means of the eight-player online matches, quick and incensed cutting edge fun is readily available.

With improved lighting impacts and more honed visuals, this is WipEout like you’ve never observed it.

Sniper Elite 4

PlayStation Plus’ second consideration in August is Rebellion’s Nazi felling strategic stealth shooter, Sniper Elite 4. This time, the crusade – playable with a community buddy – shifts the activity to the Italian promontory, making stop-offs at any semblance of Mediterranean seaside towns, antiquated timberlands, and the odd Nazi fortress. There’s likewise a different community Survival mode for up to 4 players.

Xbox

Torchlight

The Diablo-style activity RPG Torchlight from the now-outdated Runic Studios is free from August first until August fifteenth. Players will browse among three character classes, and adventure from the wellbeing of the town of Torchlight into arbitrarily produced prison levels, with a gigantic assortment of frightening beasts, unlimited varieties of plunder to discover, and journeys to finish. Randomized levels and an ‘interminable cell’ opened in the wake of finishing the primary game guarantee a seemingly perpetual ongoing interaction experience.

Castlevania- Lords of Shadows

Individuals have blended emotions about the Lords of Shadow games, and justifiably so. Konami jettisoned the exemplary arrangement and transformed the game into an increasingly true to life, 3D activity game. I truly appreciated it, thus did most commentators, gaining it an 83% on Metacritic. The game is accessible from August sixteenth – 31st.

Gears of War 4

This is truly great incorporation for August’s Games With Gold. The Coalition’s first break at a Gears game turned out fine and dandy, as I would see it. Practically your standard Gears charge, with a truly smooth multiplayer mode. I know there was presumably something dubious about this game since Epic was no longer in charge, however, it earned an 84% on Metacritic and now it’s free for the whole month of August.

Forza Motorsport

From August sixteenth to September fifteenth you can download Forza Motorsport 6 for nothing. That is my preferred method to get dashing games since I’m not excessively huge of a hustling game player (outside of Mario Kart, that is). The Forza games are in every case high caliber and keeping in mind that I’m to a greater degree a Forza Horizon sort of fellow, I am anticipating taking this one out for a turn. All things considered, it’s the best-assessed game on this rundown, bragging an 87/100 on Metacritic.

Cricket World Cup 2023- Gear Up for the Surprise

0

England has hosted the maximum number of Cricket World Cup and the next session 0f Cricket World Cup 2023 is all set to be played here! Read on to know more

The 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup will be held in India from February 9 to March 26, 2023. It will be the thirteenth release of the men’s Cricket World Cup and will likewise check the first occasion when that the competition will be exclusively facilitated by India. The nation has recently facilitated the competition thrice (1987, 1996, 2011) yet every time co-facilitating it with its Asian neighbors.

Like the World Cup 2019, the 2023 release will likewise observe the best 7 positioned sides in addition to the hosts (India) taking an interest with the expansion of 2 groups which would make it to the last of the 2023 Cricket World Cup Qualifiers.

Britain has facilitated the most number of World Cups – 5 altogether (1975, 1979, 1983, 1999 and 2019). They are likewise the main nation to have facilitated the competition alone in 1975 and 1979 as the 1983, 1999 and 2019 releases were co-facilitated mutually with Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, and Wales.

The 1987 World Cup remains the primary version to be facilitated far from England in India and Pakistan. The subcontinent likewise facilitated the 1996 release before the 2011 World Cup which India won. Be that as it may, Pakistan was deprived of its co-have status for the last because of “dubious security circumstance” winning in the nation after the assault on Sri Lankan group transport in Lahore in 2009.

In the middle of, the time will enable groups to offer some kind of reparation and return more grounded in spite of coming up short on karma.

Pakistan was close however yet up until this point. India had created remarkable outcomes, however, their World Cup expectations decreased in only 45 minutes of the semi-last challenge against the Black Caps. India looked more grounded, however, they were bulldozed when it made a difference the most for the time.

Kiwis had a stroke of karma before making it to the semis. In general, this World Cup had seen blended feelings, show and dream with the Three Lions and Kiwis a success away to make history in for their separate nations.

The groups will rewind the clock to take a gander at their slip-ups, before making things fall in their manner.

Strangely, it will be just because India will have the World Cup without anyone else. In any case, in 1987, 1996 and 2011, India had co-facilitated the marquee occasion with Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh individually.

Be that as it may, later the authorities expelled Pakistan from co-facilitating the occasion. The move occurred following a vile assault on the Sri Lankan group transport at the Liberty Chowk in Lahore in 2009.

Some known and some no so known places that he swears by for fingerlicking food.

  1. Sakhawat– Tucked away from the main road. Pulling in avid Mughlai food lovers from the city with its aromatic kebabs. Shekhawat is a humble food joint that you would have not taken notice of if it was not for the incumbent crowd at their doorway and the mesmerizing food offered.

Shed Your Sanskaars- Sacred Games 2 is Here

You heard that right. Netflix’s most awaited web series – Sacred Games has announced its Trailer and release date right now. Read on know it all!

Netflix showed the Indian audience the unfiltered reality in the most riveting and edgy cinematography. Sacred Games came and blew everyone away with its gruesome realities and gut-wrenching story-telling.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BzsGa7qgHzy/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Leaving you at a cliff-hanger moment in its previous season, the Netflix lovers have been on their toes ever since.

Based on a novel by Vikram Chandra, the book was released in 2006 and since it has been under consideration to be remade in Hollywood, but nothing can ever replicate the real charm of the Indian-ness that the book is all about.

Here, we have a line-up of all the reasons why you must watch this series and also all the reasons why its detrimental to your sanskars.

  1. Gaaliyan Galore– Indian Gaaliyan has a different ting to it. And the generous use of it all through the season gets you acquainted with some real-time creativity inherent in every Indian

2. Gruesome Graphics– The detailing of the series not just wins you over but also makes the hair at the back of your neck rise. Redefining the realistic screenplay, the season is as horrifying as it could get. Hauntingly honest, the graphics are a whole new level of bloodshed. Definitely not for the fainthearted.

3. Nudity is Natural- One of the top reasons that Sacred Games has had so many viewers is not just the gripping storyline but also the nudity in natural light. We all know, yes, sex sells.

4. Unromanticized and Exploitive Sex- Leave behind all your notions about a sensual sex soiree. With Sacred Games, it is just rough, unromantic and detrimental to your psyche. maybe this is the real face of bedroom lives that we have learned to euphemize and cuddle.

5. Transgender and Transitions in the Real World- We know the world of transgenders just as Bollywood serves it to us. Sacred Games has developed a whole new perspective in the real life of a transgender and more than just charm and taboo, it dives into their insecurities and fears as an ostracized member of the society.

6. Death, Up Close and True- Bollywood has always tread the path of immortalization of the protagonist, but with Sacred Games, it starts with death and death being the standard punctuation in the series. A grotesque tale of heroes brushing death ever so often that keeps your heartbeat on a tightrope. And guess what, Saif Ali Khan loses a thumb. Can it be any more barbaric?

7. The Nasty Take on Political Realities- The round-up of the political upheavals that the country has witnessed could not more articulate than Sacred Games. With its real-life references to the societies and the masses, the depiction hits your sensibilities like a sledgehammer.

8. The Babri Masjid Sensationalism- Cases that split the country. Cases that have for long been the bone of contention could not get a more relatable reference an allusion. Streaming through the history of India and politicization of religion in its most savage form has given that authentic galvanization that sacred Games is acclaimed for.

9. Hard Drugs in Bollywood- Bollywood has had this intoxicating dark side and that cannot be left untouched when Sacred Games is all bent upon touching upon and roping in the most compelling realities of our societies. Revealing the depressing lifestyle behind the glitz and glamour, we witness the unbridled hard drugs and its abuse in the Bollywood.

10. Sexual Fetish– Leaving no stone unturned, Sacred Games hits back with yet another untouched realm of sexuality- Fetishes. Just dabbling upon the surface, Sacred games displays the crimson world of sexual fetishes and desires. Bondage, Dominance and Submission, we got it all.

Sudan Crisis has Reached its Worse. Here is how you can Help

Social media is ablaze with Sudan Crisis updates. From online support campaigns to donations, here is how you can help.

On the off chance that you’ve checked the news today, you likely seen alarming reports of assault, murder, different demonstrations of extraordinary brutality, and an across the nation web power outage purportedly requested and completed by military pioneers in Sudan. Big names like George Clooney, Bella Hadid, Youngblood, and Demi Lovato have taken to web-based life to bring issues to light for the general population of Sudan and request that everybody help in any capacity they can. In case you’re still a little befuddled about the emergency, here’s a once-over of what’s happening, how it began, and what you can do to help.

The Beginning of an End

In April, Sudanese residents ousted Sudan tyrant Omar al-Bashir, who ruled for a long time and was recently arraigned for atrocities and annihilation in Darfur. (This change purportedly came after money and bread deficiencies.) After the residents disposed of al-Bashir, military pioneers guaranteed they’d bolster a popular government and apparently thought of an arrangement for how to impart political influence to the Sudanese individuals.

Notwithstanding, one of the fundamental contrasts between the military chiefs and the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which drove the regular folks’ turn toward a majority rules system, is that the SPA needed a long change period to give the nation time to get ready for a decision, while the military needed to take a vote in nine months.

With those supposed differences, the military allegedly grabbed hold of the brief government it had shaped, and the Sudanese individuals held a challenge. Despite the fact that their dissent was a peaceful strike, on June 3, the military allegedly reacted savagely. The World Health Organization reports that the military executed 52 protestors and harmed 700 others, yet regular citizen reports guarantee those numbers are a lot higher and bodies were tossed into the Nile River.

Additionally, numerous ladies have supposedly been singled out, assaulted, and had their clothing stolen as a “war trophy,” as indicated by the London Times. As detailed by The Hill, one dissent pioneer stated, “The [militia] realizes that on the off chance that they break the ladies, they break the unrest. In this culture, there is no more noteworthy discipline for ladies than sexual violations.”

The Internet Outage

While trying to shield individuals from announcing the military for the assault and to shield individuals from approaching different nations for assistance, the military apparently closed down the web crosswise over Sudan, as per the New York Times.

The World Food Programme– 100% volunteer-run and crossing 75 nations, the WFP is the world’s biggest association explicitly dedicated to battling hunger. Only an Rs.1000 gift supplies a month of sustenance to one starving individual — and, on the off chance that you can swing it, Rs. 5000 can encourage a whole family.

The United Nations Children’s Fund — otherwise called UNICEF — attempts to help youngsters in 190 nations over the world needing social insurance, crisis alleviation, nourishment, and water. UNICEF has earned top evaluations from associations including Charity Navigator and Charity Watch.

International Rescue Committee– Likewise, first-class philanthropy, the International Rescue Committee offers both nourishing help and crisis medicinal help to malnourished youngsters out of luck.

GoFundMe Based in Manchester, UK, a committee of local Sudanese has been created to coordinate the fundraising.

Pakistan, accordingly, were easily batting at 117/1 after 21 overs before Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya diminished them to 129/5. The match was ended inferable from showers and with the D/L strategy brought into play, the overhauled absolute pulled Pakistan further far from triumph, requiring 136 from 5 overs.

India won the match by 89 runs (DLS technique) and moved to the third position in the focuses table. Pakistan are presently ninth with three points from five diversions.

The match turned out poorly well with the Pakistani supporters, while the cheerful Indian fans had an amazing time. The start with a rainy match which suitably dampened the spirits and had the dismaying netizens roaring. But the latter half of the game when Pakistan came to bat, compensated well.

Right from the start of the match, Virat Kohli’s surprising and questionable move as out and heading over to the pavilion. Next came in the incredible appearance by Ranveer Singh in his signature outrageous costumes. His presence alone spiked up the adrenaline on and off the ground.

Summer Foods to beat the heat

0

Summers- the season brings lots of changes from clothing preferences to food choices. We cannot help but adapt the ongoing change. India currently is experiencing the hot weather of summers especially the North Indian region.

So, in order to deal with the rising mercury level, people prefer light clothes and light foods and stay hydrated to quench the thirst. And, here we are, with our take on the summer diet, to help and make you feel lighter this season. 

Curing Curd

Image result for curd

Curd is a dairy product rich in protein, calcium, and phosphorus which can be easily prepared at home and is one of the staple food products of India. 

Curd cures digestion, improves bone strength, aids in weight loss and there are other various benefits of curd as well.  

Since we are talking about summer foods, curd has a cooling effect on the stomach and can be consumed directly. And, it can be used in the form of drinks like Buttermilk (Chhaas), Lassi by adding some salt and sugar. There can be fruit raita and vegetable raita, made by mixing diced fruits in sweet curd and chopped basic veggies in the curd with some spices 

Sugarcane Juice 

The desi drink of north India is sugarcane juice (ganne ka ras), which is preferred as a beverage in many parts, especially where sugarcane is commercially grown such as Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, North Africa, and Latin America.  

This juice is extracted from pressed sugarcane. It is served with ice as a cooling drink in summers to quench the thirst & also flavored with a dash of lime, topped with mint leaves and some rock salt to make it more refreshing and tastier.  

It is not just an appetizing drink but it also serves many other purposes. It lowers cholesterol and blood pressure levels, improves digestion and boosts energy. 

Cool Cucumber

Commonly thought of as a vegetable, cucumber is actually a fruit. 

That keeps you hydrated as it contains 96% of water, high in beneficial minerals and nutrients. There are just 16 calories in a cup of cucumber with peel, 15 without peel! 

It helps in weight management, boosts immunity, promotes detoxification, good for skin and many more. All in all, cucumbers contain a plethora of powerful nutrients and vitamins which are essential for promoting physical and mental health.  

It is said to be best consumed with its peel, and other ways to use it in a salad, detox water and with curd too. 

Watermelon

One of the healthiest fruits of summer is Watermelon which has 92 % of water content. This is actually a nutrient dense food that contains high levels of vitamins, minerals & antioxidants, and only a few numbers of calories.

Clearly, it’s a delightful fruit which is healthy as well as tasty. It decreases the risk of obesity and overall mortality, diabetes and heart disease. 

It can be gobbled directly after slicing it, use it in a salad or make juices & mocktails out of it. So, why just sweat in the heat but cope up with it by adding watermelon in our diet. 

There are other fruits & vegetables like tomatoes, onions, coconut water, etc. that helps in keeping up with the scorching heat. Stay safe & cool.

Happy reading, guys!

Outpost- Amazon’s Hybrid Cloud Solution

What if you get a fully integrated Cloud service that gives you on-premises storage, along with a seamless connection to an array of avant-garde cloud services? Yes, you heard that right! Amazon Web services (AWS), the globally acclaimed pioneer at cloud connectivity technology has unveiled the revolutionary Hybrid Cloud Service, by the name of Outpost.

Tagged as the most comprehensive and utilitarian service package, the mind-boggling range of features is sure to make your jaw hit the floor. An all-inclusive facility behemoth heads your way- just name it and its right there. Services to compute, store, databases, networking, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, security, hybrid, virtual reality, augmented reality, media, application development, deployment, management and what not. Coming out in full force.

The driving stimulus for Amazon Web Services is the focus on customer obsession vis-à-vis competitor analysis, the infinite penchant for innovation and invention and high-end services that have proven their mettle in this domain.

Synergising in this neoteric venture, CEO of VMWare, Pat Gelsinger, unveiled this interspersed data center hardware. Landing in the markets in the latter half of 2019, this move is hailed to usher the industry-leading cloud infrastructure with on-premises accessibility in a fully managed and configurable compute and storage rack.

The desire for this hybridized approach surfaced when some customers asserted that they have a certain workload that is crucial to be on hosted on-site assets like applications that are latency sensitive and require proximity to premise-based assets. The long-standing Amazon services like Amazon Virtual Private (Amazon VPC), AWS Direct Connect, and Amazon Storage Gateway, undoubtedly facilitated customers with datacentres, but this new collaboration helps customers to run AWS compute and on-premise storage to effortlessly blend the in-situ workload with the remaining applications in the AWS Cloud. Previous attempts to bring about the proposed services lacked consistency upon the hybrid experiential front, due to the absence of a uniform API, tool, hardware and standard functionality on the network.

The AWS-Native Variant- the AWS Native variant is constructed with the hardware developed for its public cloud regions, providing the same APIs and a control panel that imparts a vital sense of familiarity. The racks in the AWS-Native environment come equipped with EC2 instances for networking and analytics services. This is further enhanced with the ECS and EKS database container services, while some more cutting edge offerings are said to be in the pipeline.

The VMWare Variant- Outposts is a unique amalgamation of the core components of VMWare Cloud, working on AWS, loaded with vSphere Compute virtualization, NSX virtual network, and vSAN virtual storage. With consistent infrastructure and operations, VMWare and AWS have produced Outposts that embraced the AWS technology as a solution to bridge infrastructural impediments in the way to furnish a holistic service experience.

VMWare for AWS Native- Outposts is expected to topple the staple services with its unmatched flexibility in all services. This dynamism is available in multiple ways to meet the needs of a rather broad customer base. The complementary nature of VMWare and AWS-native version of the on-premises solutions promise “a complete software-defined data-center”, as quoted by Gelsinger. The high degree of compatibility between the two outstanding cloud services is viewed as the perfect duo where VMware Cloud Foundation for EC2 is the ideal supplement around the AWS-native version of Outpost.

This new game-changer is all geared up to give the leading server and software vendors a run for their money. Although VMware, as a trailblazer in virtualization is majorly owned by Dell Technologies, who is labeled as a potential competitor; believes that if the alliance is in the best interests of VMware, then the same applies over to Dell Technologies.

Following suit to Outpost virtualization is the hardware announcement by Amazon. Purported to be running on the new A1 virtual machines architecture, namely, Graviton CPU, Amazon is all set to take this movement a step ahead and create a physical server technology for optimization of its cloud storage. This is a straight challenge with other established hardware vendors, including Dell and HP. The two-pronged combined approach by Amazon to extend hardware on-site and storage in the clouds makes the entire service proposition highly conducive in terms of both price and performance.

The ever-developing service sovereignty with the launch of Outpost, Amazon is now uniquely positioned to build tools for handling multiple account workings with an AWS Control Tower module in place. The AWS Control Tower functions as a center stage for providing an all-inclusive automated ecosystem of the Amazon Web Services to the user. With access ranging across AWS Sign-On and Microsoft Active Drive Directory, identities and access of the users can be handled with ease. To top it all, AWS Control Tower comes equipped with pre-packaged security, operations, and compliance rules.

To address the perpetually overhanging security issues, Amazon has arranged for the AWS Security Hub- a centralized security management panel that allows collaboration and implementation of other tools, so that all security tools are resolved at the fastest rate.

To wrap up, AWS Outpost is a big-time combo deal to target the customers who have been alluded to Microsoft and other competitive brands for data deposition. The hybrid ecosystem is a big step ahead to obtain one of a kind monopoly in the sphere of cloud technology.

Peep into the Future of Mixed Reality with the Microsoft Hololens 2

Gawking wide-eyed at Tony Stark do digital wonders with his over the top technology is no more a flight of fancy. The giant leaps that the tech titans have taken in the last decade or so has made us feel more like a superhero each day. Intuitive automation, hyper-perceptive artificial intelligence and bending the established tangents of reality has raised the technological innovations bar at a new high.

The latest game changer in this playpen is the much anticipated and radically advanced Hololens 2 by Microsoft. One device that dabbles in multiple spheres to revolutionize the way in which we perceive the world. It’s the groundbreaking tech filter that manipulates and refutes every precedent of reality that we have been conditioned to adhere to elevating you to a new high.

First up, the specs and works of Microsoft Hololens 2 are a marvel that is going to make your jaw hit the floor. So, let us gear up for a brief purview of the realities that we are dealing with.

Reality Check

When we start talking about the oracular domain in which the Hololens works, it is primarily an ultra-progressive amalgamation of the three realities encapsulating us all. Or let’s just say, it teleports you back into the visuals that Tony Stark is seen working at, in all his flicks. Stacking it all up, the augmented reality with virtual reality, we have a mind-boggling offspring, the mixed reality.

Fickle as one might call it, the digital realities that we are dealing with bring you to a hypnotic experience that changes the perception of presence and physicality of the world. It is like placing you where you aren’t and bringing you a vision of things, places and what not, that isn’t tangibly present. Merging the clear cut boundaries of physical and the non-physical, the evolution of everything that we know is now stands at the very threshold of holistic transformation.

Virtual Reality- Created with the assistance of a Head Mounted Device (HMD) and powered by the smartphone or computer, the virtual reality is essentially a display of three-dimensional content. A view overtook by the HMD where the viewer has completely locked away from the real world and shifts the focus onto the digital world replacing the sights and sounds and the environment.

Augmented Reality- Literally implying, heightening the sense of reality that we as humans experience. Adding another aggrandized layer to the virtual reality setup augmented realities extends more like a piggyback ride upon virtual realities with the juxtaposition of digital onto the real.

Mixed Reality- Weaving out digital and physical objects, that allows a two-way interaction, is called Mixed Reality. The holographic projections are seamlessly mingled with the reality and the objects that constitute our surroundings. It is not simply augmented reality but AR made a level more complex and interactive.

Advancements On-board

The MWC 2019, (Mobile World Conference) help at Barcelona witnessed the introduction of the Hololens 2 by Microsoft. Revving the previous version in all aspects, including a visual display system that has made the holograms more realistic and authentic. Breaking ground by providing the best in industry holograph density of 47 pixels per degree of sight, Hololens is a power packed with a lot more improvements and features to watch out for.

Combining the built-in AI with semantic understanding and new time-of-flight depth sensors, the Hololens facilitates more comprehensive interaction with the hologram as you would do with physical objects in the real world.

The time-of-flight depth sensor is further complemented by the twin eye-tracking sensor geared up with iris recognition models, powered by Windows Hello login, providing user authentications and sharing of the device. The thermal management and the new vapor chamber technology facilitates a wider physiological variability for better fitting on human heads. It allows longer hours of usage while you have your glasses on and Hololens 2 adapts to the rest of it with applications like Dynamics 365 Remote Assist, Layout and Guides Application.

Guiding on Mixed Reality

Playing up on the new pane of Mixed Reality, Dynamics 365 Guides by Microsoft creates holograms to enhance learning with step-by-step details. This recreates a scenario where employees get an up-close experience of using tools and parts. The interactive nature of the Hololens usage navigates the user into a customized training ambiance that helps reinforce institutional knowledge. For instance, as the user focuses upon a specific machine part, it projects useful digital information about it.

The natural hand tracking feature makes the user feel that he is able to hold and move the holographic object just like he would do in the real-world and the flip up visor is an easy way to switch between the real and holographic world. Microsoft’s launch partner, ThinWorx IoT has enhanced the flagship device to view a holographic dashboard, easily mapping out each component of the device lucidly for targeted troubleshooting and saving precious man-hours.

Upcoming Perks on Hololens

1. Epic Games is bringing up the Unreal engine 4 for Hololens to a cutting-edge gaming experience.

2. Mixed Reality Services- Allows the development of mixed reality applications on Azure Remote Rendering. This eases the generation of high-quality 3D content that could be streamed upon the Edge-enables devices, simultaneously in real time. Meanwhile, Azure Spatial Anchors has a digital landscape to create holograms in a bounded physical space.

3. Mixed Reality Apps- The Microsoft Dynamics 365 Guides have effectively elucidated a three-dimensional experience from a two-dimensional flat paper mode that has a mesmerizing and immersive episode.

4. Bentley Systems- One of the promising partners at Microsoft, is coming up with software to assist engineers, architects and constructions firms for complicated infrastructure projects.

5. Ocuvera- Connected with the Azure Kinect System, is a sensory software that detects the implicit requirements of the patient along with an advanced warning mechanism to alert a nurse for help.

An Intelligent World Coming Up

Mixed Reality covers a big advantage including intelligent edge and intelligent cloud to create intelligent conversations. Information gets processed quickly without transferring it onto the cloud. As such the irrelevant information is filtered out by the AI services and task-specific performance is accelerated.

This neoteric device is available in select countries for now at a hefty price, but with the enhancement proposals on the table, there is a lot more to anticipate from the Mixed Reality Technologies.

People live better in big houses and in big clothes. I try to contrast; life today is full of contrast. We have to change! I am not interested in the past, except as the road to the future. Give me time and I’ll give you a revolution. I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.

Mass-market fashion is very modern

I think the idea of mixing luxury and, very now no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore. There has to be a balance between your mental satisfaction and the financial needs of your company. A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
