The silent ones often take away the best ones with their actions. You don't have to try hard for attracting a woman; if you try hard you fail. Seducing a woman is easier if you can talk to her without thinking a lot. A woman if interested in you will appreciate your crazy passion and will always be available for you. Things won't change for them if they are genuinely interested. Woman in India are extremely beautiful and you will be that lucky one if you seduce one. A man usually looks for a sexually attractive woman while choosing their partner that could also be the criteria for Indian woman. Your physical appearance does play a major role in the game of love and lust. If you are thinking of someone whom you love, you should go ahead and tell them. It's not always the things you believe actually are true. Indian women are mysterious beings. You won't know how she can give you that most memorable surprise. Reading a women's heart is not that easy but finding the right chord can do wonders. In order to date and seduce her, you have to show your loyalty towards her. Nobody wants to date a rolling stone. Attraction is a natural process and you never know how you get attracted to someone. You can't force your love, it comes naturally.

With a Redesigned Animus and Iconic Leap of Faith Jumps, Assassin's Creed Parkours into the Reality with Sly Ease

Assassin’s Creed is the last blockbuster movie of the year and surely it ends with the much-needed bang. Unlike critics slamming the movie as disgusting and disgraceful, I am completely in love with the action sequences and the bouncy music score of the movie. Most people forget that it’s a video game movie hence you can’t expect a Macbeth. You can’t get everything; critics mainly look for every element like the portrayal of human relationships, the development of plot and the speed of the movie, the cinematography and what not but in reality Assassin’s Creed easily qualifies to become one of the best video game movies of the decade. For god’s sake, you can’t demand the writers and the director of the movie to not focus on the background story. The movie not only keeps you on the edge of your seat but also impresses you with its camera angles.
Directed by Justin Kurzel, the movie tells an exciting original story which took place during the Spanish Inquisition. Assassin’s Creed in simple words is a brilliant geek movie that needs to be watched with utter seriousness. You have to listen to each word carefully to understand what’s going on in the movie. The amalgamation of mythology and modern-day science is highlighted with panache and Assassin’s Creed undoubtedly makes it look suave.
The protagonist Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch and Aguilar de Nerha did a fantastic job throughout the movie. From fighting like a true Assassin to acting like a present-day criminal, he surely makes a solid impact on the viewers. Marion Cotillard as Sophia Rikkin, as usual, was simply subtle and looked brilliant. Jeremy Irons as Alan Rikkin, the futurist CEO of Abstergo Industries was portrayed brilliantly. He looked manipulative throughout the whole movie. From a completely redesigned Animus (virtual reality time machine) to the iconic Leap of Faith jump, the movie showcases all the elements of the video game with feline ease. If you talk about breaking the curse, Assassin’s Creed surely succeeds in making a smooth transition from console to the cinema. With an original story, first-class actors, sleek action sequences, mind-blowing cinematography and a fascinating legacy, this movie won’t disappoint to enthrall you.

Living in the moment is an art. Most people destroy their youth by worrying about the future. There's no use of saving for your future, there's no use of whining about your past, the only moment of truth is now. You live in the moment. Anything can happen tomorrow hence love, share and drink now.
Perfection is the greatest disease that mankind is trying to achieve in the quest of upgrading their lifestyle. In the short journey of life, most people waste most of their precious moments for decorating their tomorrows. There’s no use of living a life under constant pressure to build a beautiful future because you don’t have control over circumstances. Everything is unpredictable. If things are going right in your life preserve it. Don’t try to spoil it by thinking about the forthcoming upheavals. Life will move on anyways. There’s no time machine in real life hence you can’t visit your future to plan your present. The only thing which is real is now, right now. You are reading this and this is the only truth.
The idea of saving money or flaunting a big bank balance is immaterial if you can’t enjoy the moment. You spend your whole life doing your regular work, saving money for your kids and one fine day the world changes and all the things that are of value become defunct. You are no soothsayer who can predict the future. You will meet too many people who will tell you save money for your future, you will meet many people who will tell you plan but don’t you think you lose the whole meaning of your existence during the entire process of planning and plotting? Don’t you think you just become a robot who works for the living and creating wealth?
Today you are free, tomorrow you are caged. Today you have wings left to decipher the beautiful horizon, tomorrow you are just dead. Your disappearance will make no difference, the world will move without you. Everyone will move on. If you are a thorough perfectionist, you should stop reading this now as I think, the quest for perfection is a disease. There’s nothing like perfect in this world. Everything is an illusion.
I know many people who spend their whole life working for their kids and building a home but the kids do not help them or anyone live in their homes. I know people who save a lot and live a life of a beggar, I know many people who think I am too irrational but the fact is I live in the moment. What’s the use of thinking about your future when you have not seen it? What’s the use of taking the unnecessary stress of heartbreak when you can get many? What’s the use of thinking about the things you lost? You shouldn’t be worried about anything because time is the greatest healer. People take pressure to get promoted but what will you do with the man-made designations.
Living in the moment is the best thing you can do right now because the world is on the verge of great transition. We can see major changes in leadership and decision making happening. Unlike yesteryears, the materialism and the consumerism will tempt you to indulge and flaunt and if you have the capability now flaunt it but never take pressure. You should not compare your beauty with others because beauty is an enigma and everyone is born with uniqueness.
Some people spend their whole life trying to prove that they are sincere. They reach office at the right time, they perform, they return home tired and sleep. At the end of the month, they get their salary, they pay their bills, invest in their kid's education, don’t have much sex and dies. They never enjoy life rather they are just born to earn and die. They sometimes take their family for vacation and that’s more like a formal thing for them. It’s time to break free and live in the moment. I know you have lots of stress – family, work and others but you can’t change it by worrying. You execute now or tomorrow but don’t think about the future. You should live in the moment.
I know you are unhappy because you are thinking about tomorrow. I know you are sad about your recent breakup. I know you have lots of money but no time. I know you want to earn money to buy your dream car but just think once, are you really living the precious time you are bestowed upon? Are you smiling a lot? Are you doing things that you love most? If not, just get up and start enjoying the moment. I am sure you will feel better after doing this. Eventually dying with your memories is far better than dying with your dreams.

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, but what should you put in there? Once the gifts are wrapped, look for fun and inexpensive things to fill your loved one’s stocking. Even the smallest treats will be appreciated, and come in handy. Here are a few suggestions:
EOS lip balm is the hottest lip moisturizer on the market. Celebrities of all types have been photographed pampering their lips with this cool and trendy, orb-shaped balm that comes in a variety of flavors. Evolution of Smooth is the perfect Christmas gift for a millennial’s stocking, and it’s priced just right.
Younger people love key chains that reflect their personality and lifestyle. For girls, ask Santa’s elves to monogram one in a pretty script. The stores are also full of fluffy ball key chains that make a cut, inexpensive gifts.
Wintery weather means cold feet. Stuff stocking with socks of different colors, patterns and lengths – ankle, knee high and crew -- to keep toes well insulated. Some socks on the market also serve as slippers of a sort, with soft, downy material inside. While you’re out, pick up a pair of dog socks to surprise your pooch.
With the approaching start of a New Year, this is a perfect time to start a journal or to peruse a book of short, daily encouragements to help make that one big change you’ve resolved to accomplish. Check out the bestseller list and add a well-reviewed mystery novel to your family member’s stocking.
This may been like you haven’t put forth much effort, but who hasn’t opened a gift from a particular store and wished they had received something, well, different? Even small denomination gift cards will allow the receiver to buy the exact flavor mocha they prefer or have an appetizer before dinner. Gift cards, like cash, fit nicely in a wallet and certainly come in handy.
Stockings are perfectly suited for small, inexpensive and fun trinkets. It should be enjoyable to select items that will make your family smile when they go through the annual tradition of seeing what Santa left behind.

Welcome to the world of extreme magic. If you want to watch a movie that will make you escape from the tormented realities of life, this movie may help you cross the horizon of truth. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is all about the fantastic world that looks believable. No less than a masterpiece, this movie will surely entertain you. Gone are the days of Harry Potter, most of its fans are young adults by now but the legacy continues. Now that the movie shifts its base from the United Kingdom to North America and tells a story about magic that existed 70 years before the advent of Harry Potter days, the movie surely is a well-crafted prequel to the much acclaimed Harry Potter series. You don’t have to be a die-hard Harry Potter fan to enjoy Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them rather this film gives you a second chance to start afresh and I am no exception.
The movie showcases fantastic animals, great visuals and flamboyant acting skills from all the characters, however, the movie slows down a bit after the intermission. Interestingly, the movie flaunts a real soul at the end. J. K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them ends with a bang. The protagonist Newt Scamander, a magizoologist played by eccentric Eddie Redmayne is the main highlight of the movie. His quest to preserve the fantastic beasts in his suitcase looks utterly implausible. Other characters like Katherine Waterston as Tina, Dan Fogler as Jacob, Alison Sudol as Queenie did an incredible job too. I really enjoyed Jacob’s role as ‘no-maj’ in the movie. I could easily relate to his character as I feel like a newcomer to the world created by J.K Rowling. I made it a point to watch this movie just to start afresh as I missed all the Harry Potter movies during my childhood days. Being a Lord of the Rings fan, I never had a craze for Harry Potter movies but this movie gives me second chance to explore the world of wizardry again.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is directed by David Yates and I think he was extremely accurate in creating a world that looked so real. You are destined to feel the magic outside the theatre. This movie is all about the power of imagination and who else better than J.K Rowling knows it. The movie is flooded with non-human characters still you won’t feel suffocated with the overdose of computer generated creatures. It would be a crime if I don't praise niffler, a black, fluffy long-snouted creature that loves anything that glitters. The other creatures in the movie include Thunderbirds, Bowtruckles, House-elves, Hippogriffs, Goblins, Merpeople, Demiguise, Occamys, Basilisks, Phoenixes, Mountain Trolls and Swooping Evil. The character profile of all these creatures can be accessed at Pottermore. The movie has no major villain as such but the sequels of the movie promise to have a larger than life antagonist in the form of Gellert Grindelwald. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is not a children’s movie hence all the Harry Potter fans can easily relate and enjoy the dark world of magic with equal ease.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is one of the finest films that not only entertains you but also creates a new universe for people who would love to take refuge in the whimsical world of magic. If you want to be a part of this universe, you should definitely watch this movie. This film sets a new standard for all the fantasy fiction fans, writers and filmmakers.

Workaholic, urban Indian women are fast and extremely to the point. Their preferences are very clear and you have no chance if you can’t match up to their expectation and class but there are ways to attract them. Most urban women are busy with their work hence they get very less time to meet people. The only place where they meet people from opposite gender is at work but everyone is not lucky enough to have like-minded individuals at the workplace. The mingling only happens in pubs, social gatherings, Whatsapp and Facebook. The fast city life is creating a new breed of population. Most of the urban Indian women are lonely because they are so engrossed with their career and responsibilities that they can hardly give any time to harness a great relationship.
Time plays a great role in building a relationship but the fast paced world allows no extra time for a working woman to spend quality time with a man who she considers attractive. Maintaining a work-life balance often becomes a big deal for them. The constant pressure of moving up the ladder, flaunting fast cars, exhibiting the best dress etc. keeps them so engrossed that they hardly get time to notice someone who is constantly craving for her attention. In order to break their cocoon and attract them, you have to know their interests, their true passion for things.
In order to attract a very busy woman, you have to make yourself available for her. Workaholic women don’t have time to chat with you and exchange stickers on Facebook or Whatsapp. They are only interested in results. If you can’t add any value to her existence then you are of no use hence you have to make a point that you have contributed a bit of solace to her lonely and busy life. The world is full of people who make promises in their first dates but a workaholic woman always prefers to date a man who value his words. If you make fake promises, you are destined to be doomed.
Workaholic urban Indian women are the loneliest people on this earth hence we have to make them feel good in order to attract them. Every woman has a dream just like a successful man; they not only think about their career and goals but also think a lot about raising a healthy family. Women are more responsible than men hence it would be rude if we don’t respect their madness.
In order to attract a woman who works hard for a living, you have to approach her with positivity. Trying too hard for attracting a woman is just not the best option however if you are attracted to someone, you shouldn’t be late in expressing your feeling. Women always wait for the man to approach them hence you have to break the barrier of ego and tell your girl about the feelings first. Remember, time is money and a workaholic woman always understands and respect time.
You may envy man in your circle who can easily attract any woman with their good looks and behavior. Most men wonder how these men bond so well with girls, the answer is simple. These men know the art of attraction which is universal and works well with any woman. You have to show your inclination towards them to attract them. They are no mind readers; you have to express your likings without hurting their feelings. That sounds little difficult but all women love to be pampered. The art of attraction is something that everyone should practice in order to achieve inspiration. Women are the greatest stimulation and the driving force for any men to live a healthy and fine life. A man is incomplete without them. Imagine a world without females, sounds more dangerous than a zombie apocalypse.
As someone rightly said that beauty is an enigma, and you can never judge beauty hence every woman is unique and you can’t judge by their outer appearance. Making the first move is what workaholic women crave hence doing things that they never expected from you makes them fall for you. Surprise them, love them, tell them beautiful tales, take them to meditation classes, buy them books, take them to restaurants or just spend time with them. You are destined to succeed in the game of attraction if you give requisite importance to the woman of your dreams. It can be anyone.
In the world of hate, smog, and hypocrisy, you need to dedicate your time to liberate yourself with things you crave for in your daily dreams.

Imagine a world where you are daily competing with robots, and they are much more advanced and efficient than you. Imagine a world, full of ruthless deadline seekers. Imagine a world when you have to re-invent yourself daily to survive. The invasion of technology looks tricky. Amid peer pressure and continuous push for progression, human beings will soon become working instruments. There's no end to this because we have to embrace the coming modernization to survive and stand. We can't run away from the shadows which are created out of our existence. In the quest for advancement, human beings will be pushed into a world of beautiful illusions. There will be no reality, there will be only shadows chasing you day and night. There will be fear created to tame you at every phase of your life. You will be extracted till the last drop of blood. Consumerism is increasing and you can't ignore its onslaught hence you have to run hard. The modern society will reduce into a performing jungle.
The skyscrapers will always make you feel small. You will be reduced to the size of an ant but the growth of those structures won't stop. The future world may look much more advanced but there will be less soul. The connection between people will only happen virtually. Your busy lives will never let you do things that you love because you can't afford to, you don't have the luxury to - not work. The great society where we are living now has best of both the worlds. We have a half-baked technology and we have a half-baked existence. When we join them, it becomes a perfect world but things will change in future. We won't have a half-baked existence too. We will have no friends; we will be loners in our own homes. We have to find a silver lining and take the legacy of our past to the future without compromising on the happiness factor. The urban world is competitive hence you are always stressed out. You have no time to talk over the phone. You are reduced to a typing machine where you can exchange words day and night but could not exchange hugs in actuality.
The curse of modern times looms over everyone. The increasing population of introverts, workaholics and daydreamers testify the very fact that we are slowly moving into that much-feared zone. How can you get rid of uselessness? There will be no answer if you don't think now. Just like a health club, a hub for loners, workaholics and daydreamers should be created so that these people also get a chance to live life to their fullest. Due to work pressure and other commitments, people generally become socially detached and they can't make a valid interaction. They are often termed as insane but in reality, these people suffer from extreme loneliness. The scream room concept is for them.
Lately, an Egyptian book shop introduces this concept where visitors can de-stress by screaming. They are allowed to scream for 10 minutes in a dark room. They have also placed a drum kit for venting frustration and it's free of charge. This idea will surely be appropriate for the future generation. Not only a scream room but there will be a complete place dedicated to lone wolves and socially challenged people. While most normal people have no fears of facing public, the loners are extremely scared of making a conversation. They always mess up a whole situation by saying something inappropriate hence they need a place of their own where they can do anything without facing any type of judgments from others. From screaming to mad dancing, from head banging rooms to monologue rooms, there should be space for every activity however the center should not be treated like a mental asylum. It should get all the respect. The world is going insane in some form or another hence we need a space where we can confront the insanity bestowed upon us by the so-called modern society.

Maya was a place where people experienced many hardships in the past. From earthquakes to floods, this place rose against all odds hence the people of this place are born modest. There was a time when Italy’s grandfather used to rule the town, he was the most well-read person in the whole settlement. Italy was his favorite. His grandfather wanted Italy to learn medicine so that he could heal the people of Maya from contagious diseases.
The initial years of Italy were fun. It’s mostly farming, playing and eating out with friends. He was the most pampered child but he never demanded anything from his parents. He always followed his elders and loved the younger ones. Italy grew up in the town, studied in the neighborhood school and topped every exam. Mathematics was his much-loved subject. After few years he touched 18 and he has to move to a different town called Harod for his higher studies. This was the first time he first moved out of his cocoon. He shifted to a hostel where he was cooking his own meals and studying simultaneously. His hostel was located near the institution. Time passed and Italy graduated from the best college but he couldn’t forget that night from his Harod days in the hostel when he and the others saw something that stayed with them forever in the form of a story.
2016: Location: Somewhere away from Maya
It was a rainy night on a cold and windy evening, everyone in the family gathered together to have an extensive meal. Everyone knew that Italy has a story in his mind but he was unable to tell anyone because he always thought that the modern cohort would never believe this. After lots of persuasions, Italy finally started his tale about that night in the hostel in the town of Harod.
“Everyone was happy that day in the hostel. We won the football match against our rivals so we decided to arrange a feast.” - Italy said with excitement and the joy reflected prominently in his face.
“Those days were fun days; we were young and ready to explore anything. That night we wanted to celebrate our victory against the strongest team. Everything was ready and we started cooking. It was around 10:30 pm, when we hear a very loud sound; it was just like the sound of a blast. We were paranoid and moved inside the hostel for shelter. Everybody rushed to take a safe refuge. Suddenly, we saw fireballs coming from the sky with great speed, falling all over the place. It was a serial attack when hundreds of fireballs fell upon our hostel. For a moment we thought, this is going to be our last day.” Italy said with a smirk on his face.
“But nothing happened although there were fireballs all around. After few hours, there were no fire, no ashes, nothing actually got destroyed. Everything was in the perfect order as if nothing really happened. Only a tree was scalded and was lying dead. We were astonished to see such a wonder happening. As there were no media those days, we couldn’t spread the news. We couldn’t sleep the whole night and were thinking about those mysterious fireballs. With the first ray of light, we decided to tell this story to no one for preserving the sanctity and secrecy of the event. Only few us witnessed this mysterious event and we made a deal not to tell this story to anyone. But as time passed, we started experiencing things much more magical than that event.” – Italy checks his mobile, smiles and ends his story after a brief pause.
Italy’s story deeply fascinates me. I wonder what if those fireballs really existed and they only fell on places and people that deserved them. Why the fireballs actually made that loud noise before arriving? Are those real fireballs or some hallucinating vision of Italy and his friends? Remember they were completely ecstatic after that victory and were planning for a feast. What if the fireballs were some kind of signals to establish a connection with the humans? What if the story that Italy narrated was completely fake as there were no written records, what if he created a fictional tale to entertain us that night? What if that’s a form of a natural disaster, which is very rare in modern times? There are many unanswered questions, many undeciphered codes, many unknown dimensions for mankind but stories like these will always intrigue us.
