14 Charming Illustrations That Sum Up Perfectly What True Love Is

t’s not always easy to recognize true love. It’s not something that makes itself known; it doesn’t involve serenading under balconies or giving a million roses. Real love might be quiet and shy, but it will make you truly happy.
Some of the following illustrations perfectly show how to recognize the real thing.

Bahubali 2 : The Conclusion - Review

Why Kattapa.. Why?? A question probably 1.4+ billion people have been quizzed about for the past 2 years.. Well, I assure you, the wait for that answer was worth more than the stunts, songs or a budget of 2.5 billion INR.. It probably was a combination of one of the most emotionally and frustratingly epic scene I've ever witnessed in Indian cinema.. Just the grandeur of that one scene gave for some goosebumps; for some a prolonged tear jerker; and for some absolute silence with awe.

The Conclusion is helmed on 5 shoulders.. #Prabhas, #Sathyaraj, #RanaDaggubati, #AnushkaShetty and #RamyaKrishan, who have all done their parts well. But the strength of the movie is Prabhas who literally lived the character. The support cast have all done their parts brilliantly.

S.S. Rajamouli is a Genius of a Screen Writer and Director for breathing life into K.V. Vijayendra Prasad's sensational story!

We were drawn in with BAAHUBALI: THE BEGINNING and today, we are blown away with BAAHUBALI: THE CONCLUSION!

A Beautiful, Fiery, Explosive, Phenomenal, Epic Conclusion!!!

Performance wise this is a Prabhas film all the way who gave his blood sweat and complete dedication in portraying the Dual Role of Father and Son.Rana was also brilliant as Bhalladeva with veteran actors Satyaraj and Nasser were very convincing.Ramaya had an author backed role which she did splendidly.Anushka looked beautiful and totally owned the character of Devasena.However Tammanna was totally missing only appearing in the climax.

This movie had a good mix of soulful songs, witty one liners, amazing sound effects, bgm, beautiful locations (both original and visually created), grand sets, hard hitting stunts and touching moments placed aptly.

I had read earlier that the VFX is in par with #TheLordOfTheRings and #HarryPotter.. I would say it is top notch for Indian cinema.

There is so much more to the story of Baahubali than the WKKB question. The story takes us through the Love blooming between Amarendra Baahubali and Devasena, then delves into the Politics in the Mahishmathi Kingdom and some shocking revelations ensure the pace is kept high and then comes the sequence of Kattappa killing Baahubali. From then, the story becomes predictable and turns into a clichéd revenge drama. But the greatness of SS Rajamouli as a top- notch technician of the movie lies in how well he keeps the audience engaged and absorbed into the story. The entire narrative of Baahubali has been fleshed out and the emotions are handled very well indeed. The sequence of Kattappa and Baahubali has been used for maximum dramatic effect.

Wherever there are no strong emotions to keep us focused, Rajamouli resorts to Visuals.A separate mention has to go to the Visuals of the movie. The movie is visually stunning. So stunning indeed that it is one of, if not the most beautiful Indian film so far. Every frame of it oozes grandeur. Some of the sequences, especially the Visuals of the Romance song between Devasena and Baahubali match the standards of Hollywood. No doubt about it.

However, that is where the comparison with Hollywood must end, in all fairness. The movie is Indian at its core and the story, which heavily draws inspiration from the famous characters of Maha Bharatha is not new to the audience. It is an age old tale of Sibling Rivalry set in a different world and its saving grace are the great characters that populate the world of Baahubali. The actors have done a great job with stellar performances from Anushka, Satyaraj, RamyaKrishna, Nasser and Rana. They all acted very well. But ultimately it is Prabhas that steals the show. His performance is apt, controlled and is almost always on point. He never over-does his role.

All the technicians that have worked for the film have done a fabulous job as well. The music by MM Keeravani is wonderful and his BGM takes the experience to new heights. Senthil Kumar's cinematography is another big plus for the movie.

The pacing of the movie is amazing but it falters towards the end, as what happens becomes predictable and in the final battle, the viewers are treated at the same time to wonderful visuals and clichés. However, the events leading to the climax more than make up for it. Ultimately the ending is a safe one and the final sequence neatly ties it to the beginning of the first movie. Very sublime.

Finally, Baahubali is today's blockbuster, tomorrow's classic and is definitely one of the most important films for Indian movie industry. Watch it for the Visuals and Rajamouli's superb narration. It is an Indian film with an Indian story and is suffused with Indian sensibilities. That makes it a breathe of fresh air.

Here is what your sleeping habit tells you about your Love relationship

Recent psychological research carried out at the Edinburgh International Science Festival discovered an interesting fact: any change in the relationship of a loving couple immediately affects the positions that partners take in their sleep. The most important thing here is not the position in which they cuddle before going to sleep or the one that they take right after they fell asleep. The position they sleep in all night long and wake up in the morning is the only one that really matters.
Inspired by the research of Professor Richard Wiseman (University of Hertfordshire) and the work of psychologist Corinne Sweet, the below is created as a fun guide to sleeping positions for couples that hopefully will give you a better understanding of your relationship.

The ’Honeymoon Hug’ position

This position tends to occur if the couple has just started dating or had to spend some time apart from each other.
The position is also popular among married couples if their family life is still passionate and full of tenderness and love.

The ’Dialogue’ position

This position is very common among those partners who maintain a strong connection between each other but still need to spend more time together and to communicate more often.

The ’Stargazing’ position

Both partners sleep on their backs. Usually, one person is laying on their back while the other rests their head on their partner’s shoulder, making him or her the more dependent one. This couple has great chemistry, but sometimes one of them finds it a little uncomfortable being forced to take the other one’s point of view (and in this case, position) into consideration.

The ’Sweetheart’s Cradle’ position

This position is very similar to the previous one, although it’s much more intimate. This one is very common among couples that aren’t afraid to constantly show their feelings; they’re very tender and care a lot about each other. The position typically means that the man is more bossy and domineering in the relationship.

The ’I Cherish You’ position

These couples are usually very happy and genuinely enjoy their relationships. The position reflects mutual respect of personal space. And their touching backs are more proof that it’s highly important for them to feel their partner’s presence nearby.

The ’Liberty’ position

This position may show that a couple went to bed right after they had a big fight. However, there is an alternative explanation: both partners are probably very independent, self-centered individuals who require a lot of personal space.

The ’King of the Bed’ position

Partners who tend to spread themselves all over the bed are usually those who feel the need to assert themselves rather than show their feelings to their partner. Their behavior in relationships is often very selfish, which is reflected in their sleeping habits.

The ’Spoons’ position

This position indicates harmonious and passionate relationships at the same time. The position is very popular within the first few years of marriage. The partner behind usually plays a dominant role in such relationships. The other partner, on the contrary, enjoys the feeling of being protected.

The ’Loose Spoons’ position

Couples choose a very comfortable ’spooning’ position but provide each other with more freedom. This is one of the most complicated positions with at least two possible interpretations:
  1. The position reflects a relationship without passion — at least one of the partners feels this way. He or she feels no more need for any physical contact or is simply dissatisfied with his or her partner.
  2. In the second case, the partner who turns their back provokes the other one into an expression of feelings and is willing to get more attention.

The ’Leg Hug’ position

The partners prefer not to sleep in close contact with each other, but they casually touch each other’s feet. Usually, couples sleeping like this share family harmony and mutual trust. They give each other freedom while keeping a small ’bridge’ to touch and feel each other even at night.

10 Ways to Search Google for Information That 96% of People Don’t Know About

In our era of advanced technology and high-speed Internet connections, you can find information on virtually anything. In the space of just a few minutes, we can find recipes for the tastiest pie or learn all about the theory of wave-particle duality.
But more often than not, we have to sift through a vast body of knowledge to get the information we need, and this can take hours rather than minutes. Here are some of the most effective methods for searching Google to help you find the precious material you’re looking for in just a couple of clicks.

1. Either this or that

Sometimes we’re not sure that we’ve correctly remembered the information or the name we need to start our search. But this doesn’t have to be a problem! Simply put in a few potential variations of what you’re looking for, and separate them by typing the “|“ symbol. Instead of this symbol you can also use ”or." Then it’s easy enough to choose the result that makes the most sense.

2. Searching using synonyms

Our language is rich in synonyms. Sometimes this can be very convenient when doing research online. If you need to find websites on a given subject rather than those that include a specific phrase, add the "~" symbol to your search.
For example, if you search for the term "healthy ~food" you’ll get results about the principles of healthy eating, cooking recipes, as well as healthy dining options.

3. Searching within websites

Sometimes you read an interesting article on a website and find yourself subsequently wanting to share it with your friends or simply reread it. The easiest way to find the desired piece of information again is to search within the website. To do this, type the address of the site, then a key word or entire phrase from the article, and it should come up immediately.

4. The power of the asterisk

When our cunning memory decides to prevent us from recalling that one key word, phrase, or number we need in order to find what we’re looking for, you can turn to the powerful "*" symbol. Just use this in the place of the word/phrase you can’t remember, and you should be able to find the results you’re looking for.

5. When lots of words are missing

If it’s the lengthier half of the phrase you can’t remember rather than a single key word, try writing out the first and last words and putting “AROUND + (the approximate number of missing words)“ between them. For example, ”I wandered AROUND(4) cloud."

6. Using a time frame

Sometimes we urgently need to acquaint ourselves with events that occurred during a certain period of time. To do so, you can add a time frame to your search query with the help of three dots between the dates. For example, if we want to find out about scientific discoveries during the 20th century, we can write:

7. Searching for a title or URL

To help find the key words and name of an article, type “intitle:“ before the search term, without any spaces between them. In order to find the words from a URL, use ”inurl:".

8. Finding similar websites

If you’ve found something you really like online and want to find similar websites, type in "related:" and then the address of the site, again without a space between them.

9. Whole phrases

Framing the search term within quotation marks is the simplest and most effective way to find something specific and in the exact order you typed it in.
For example, if you type in the words I’m picking up good vibrations without quotation marks, the search engine will show the results where these words appear in any order on a website, as opposed to the specific order in which you typed them.
If, on the other hand, you type "I’m picking up good vibrations" within quotation marks, you’ll get only those results where these words appear only in the order you typed them in. This is a great way to find the lyrics to a song when you only know one line from it.

10. Unimportant search words

To remove unimportant search words from your query, simply write a minus symbol before each one. For example, if you want to find a site about interesting books, but you aren’t looking to buy them, you can write the following:

The next breakthrough invention! Edible water bottle ball aims to replace plastic bottles

Ooho is a drinking water product created by a startup known as Skipping Rocks Lab. The product is reported to hype up the internet due to making “eating water” possible and getting rid of plastic bottles at the same time.
According to Extreme Tech eating water was made possible by the startup due to the product's packaging. Ooho was seen as a spherical blob which has water encased in it making it a squishy bottle. Yet, the huge surprise is that you could actually eat the whole blob of water with no plastic bottle needed.
Ooho was mentioned to be created through seaweeds used as its membrane. The edible bottle’s membrane was composed through spherification which includes sodium alginate from seaweed and calcium chloride. Each ball was then mentioned to only take 2 cents in order to produce it thus saving money as well.

Moreover, amid Ooho being edible, people are still given the choice whether to eat the membrane or not since it was identified to be tasteless and has an unusual surface when eaten. Yet, people could still throw it away and not eat it because as it was mentioned to be biodegradable it will just break down as a compost on land or ground over a week or so.
Furthermore, the Ooho product aims to be “the global solution to water and drinks on-the-go.” The startup mentioned that they also aim to replace and get rid of plastic bottles as they pose a great environmental issue to the world.
With that said, BGR reported that the downside of the product not becoming global is that it only makes one gulp of water compared to a bottle. Another disadvantage of Ooho was its delicate membrane not being able to toss it anywhere or pack it into someone’s bag pack.
Ooho was first unveiled back in 2014 and is now envisioning global customer targets to reach their goals. The Skipping Rocks Lab’s Ooho product already has 1,000 independent investors willing to help them fund money on their site online. The startup also mentioned that they are now currently working on another seaweed based product that would aid in sustainable packaging solutions.

Want to tone your Butt? Try these exercises

Yes, lunges and squats are great to shape your butt, but deadlifts can work wonders to lift your booty and scoop the sides of your thighs. The deadlift is a classic weight training exercise and like the pull-up, targets the entire back. What’s more, it works on your hamstrings and makes them flexible. 
If you find deadlift intimidating or have never done them before, here are simple rules for you to follow. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and slightly bend your knees. Make sure you keep your back straight. Lift the bar with your hands slightly lesser than shoulder width (markings on the bar will indicate where you should hold). Now raise the bar slowly till the hip level and then bring it back to your shin. Perform the move squeezing your glutes using your legs, hips and other muscles and not your arms. 
If you have already mastered deadlift, you can try these variations recommended by fitness expert Ganesh Sakpal.
Stiff leg deadlift: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, grasp a barbell. Keep the knees slightly bent (or straight). Lower from the hips and raise the barbell. Maintain a neutral curve in your back. Squeeze through the butt and hamstrings to come back up and repeat. This move is excellent for hamstrings strength and development. Complete 10-16 repetitions of this move.
Romanian deadlift: Keep your feet wide apart. Use the same stance as regular deadlifts but don’t bend your knees. Bend from the hips, and lift the barbell slowly along the thighs without squatting. Stop raising the bar when it is below your knee caps. Hold for a second, lower slowly and come back to start position. It is excellent for hamstrings and glutes. Do two sets of 12 repetitions of the Romanian deadlift. Also, try these exercises to lose weight from your buttocks.
Keep in mind: Avoid these  moves if you have a lower back injury.
