The top 10 games that you must play


Arkham City I enthusiastically recommend this game to anyone I meet because I’m quite sure it would appeal to a very large number of gamers out there – even if they might not be hardcore Batman fans (I myself am not a big Batman fan, in the sense that I haven’t read the comics; I even tried one). The characters are so impressively fleshed out, the narrative so immersive, the action so exhilarating, and the visuals so perfect, that I truly believe I have never played a better game to date.

Mass Effect Series 

This is a Sci-Fi shooter + RPG with the most intricate and engaging plot I have ever encountered in a game. Each choice you make affects the outcome of the game and the fate of the galaxy in myriad ways. You can choose to play as a by-the-book Paragon, or a badass Renegade who isn’t afraid to shake things up. The sheer scale and complexity of the plot is akin to that of a Hollywood movie – and it doesn’t let you down. Blake Swopes’ answer does a great job explaining some plot details without spoiling any of it.

The Elder Scrolls V:

Skyrim Again, great immersive RPG with a massive world full of ancient lore and mystery (and dragons!), open for adventurous gamers to explore. You play as the lucky Dragonborn (or “Dovahkiin” in Dragon-tongue) of Skyrim, destined to slay evil dragons and bring peace to the world. If you’re into fantasy or RPGs, this is most definitely the game for you. One of a handful which completely sucked me in from the word “go”.

Assassin’s Creed Series

Here you get to play as a member of a Creed of Assassins at various points of time in history. The gameplay is excellent, and the plot well-paced. But to be fair it does drag at times (“just let me assassinate someone already!”). But altogether the game more than covers up for these little flaws, rewarding players with endless opportunity for great action through the most part. If you only want to play the best games in this series, go for Assassin’s Creed II, followed by Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

Here are five of the best fabrics for embroidery:

Quilting cotton

Probably the most obvious choice for embroidery is 100 percent quilting cotton. Why the designation “quilting?” Quilting cottons are heavier than heirloom cottons like Nelona or Swiss Batiste. Heirloom cottons are also 100 percent cotton, but are sheer which is problematic for both hand and machine embroidery as threads often show through.

With the crossover of  embroidery silk  fabric and quilting, many quilters now incorporate hand and machine embroidery into their projects, so cotton fabrics are abundantly available.

Heavyweight canvas cotton is known as utility cloth. That makes canvas the preferred fabric for embroidery silk  fabric on heavily used items like tote bags.


Linen is lighter, more textured, and 30 percent stronger than cotton. Created from the flax plant, linen is considered the strongest of natural fibers and wears extremely well. That’s probably why even the most used of antique linens are still highly sought after.


Silk Embroidered Pillow

You may think of silk as a delicate, flimsy fabric but that is not always the case. Silk dupioni combines the luxurious shine of silk with a crisp, strong base. Fine silk threads run vertically in the fabric, along the selvage. Silk from conjoined cocoons run horizontally in the fabric producing a textured effect.

Laird Felt


Whether it is pure wool, felted wool or even synthetic blends of wool felt, this fiber is particularly suited for embroidery. It is strong, does not fray in felt form, and provides some depth for embroidery without the nuisance of a deep nap that would swallow up stitches.
Holland Felt

One of the biggest advantages of stitching on wool felt is the it does not produce a raw edge that needs to be finished or hemmed, making it perfect for decorative crafts.

Therefore, you can lose up to 32 pounds in four months by eating a well-balanced diet that’s coupled with exercise. A gym membership is not a necessity to getting in shape and losing weight.

Step 1 to lose weight without going to the gym

Revamp your diet. Reduce your daily caloric intake by 500 calories. Stay away from high-fat foods, such as chips, cookies, pastries and candy; these foods carry very little nutrition. Instead, eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains. Drink eight to 10 glasses of water per day.

Step 2 lose weight without going to the gym

Engage in resistance training three days per week. Resistance training builds lean muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn throughout the day. Use dumbbells, a stability ball or resistance bands. If you do not have these, performing bodyweight exercises are also effective. Exercises like squats, lunges, chest press, pushups, biceps curls, triceps dips and situps are all exercises you can perform at home.

Step 3 lose weight without going to the gym

Perform cardiovascular exercise to burn calories and fat. The Centers for Disease Control recommends 60 to 90 minutes of moderate-intensity cardiovascular exercise five days per week. Go for a bike ride or run outside. Consider purchasing equipment for your house, such as a treadmill, elliptical machine or stationary bike.

  1. Running – Go running at least 4–5 days a week. You can start by walking first and then add running to your regime. Keep pushing your limits and keep yourself hydrated.

  2. Sports – Take up an outdoor sport of your choice which include running or moving at least. Example, Badminton, Basketball or any other. I would recommend swimming, as it is said to be most useful (I have never done it).

  3. Core/Abdominal Exercises – If you are not interested in Sports, I would recommend adding some kind of core strengthening exercises for faster fat burning. You can find lot of them on the internet, but basic ones are planks, side planks, leg raises, squats, Bar twists and crunches.

  4. Yoga – If you don’t want to do that too, try yoga. There are lot of Youtube channels, where you can learn and perform yoga from.

  5. Zumba – Zumba has gained popularity quickly and is a mix of dance and exercise. It has proved effective for weight reduction and muscle toning for many individuals. There are Zumba instructors throughout the world.

  6. Eating Habits – Try to eat healthy and eat right. Eat healthy meaning, try to avoid junk food and high fat containing food. Eat right meaning, avoid overeating. Keep in mind, don’t leave eating altogether. Lot of people go on low portion diets and end up being bulimic. Cheat day is allowed.

And now most important thing, never ever give up your dream of being fit. Do it for yourself, don’t do it for others because you owe and own yourself. Never ever let others bring you down. Go out, meet people, laugh and live.

4 reasons why Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan​ may not hit the screens this Eid

ad news for Mohanlal fans! The superstar’s much-awaited film, Pulimurugan, which was scheduled to be released on Eid 2016, is now likely to miss the coveted Box Office slot.

Latest reports suggest that the Mohanlal film may be postponed. However, the makers are yet to make an official announcement. Here are four reasons that may have caused the delay:

1) Shooting delays?

The makers are yet to complete the shooting of Pulimurugan. Mohanlal is also busy to complete his Telugu film Janatha Garage, which is slated to release on 12 August.


2) Pulimurugan is the most expensive Malayalam film till date

A film like Pulimurugan deserves a solo release as the Mohanlal-starrer is touted to be the most expensive Malayalam film ever made. Produced by Tomichan Mulakupadam and directed by Vyshak, the film’s budget is reported to be a whopping Rs 18 crore. Pulimurugan also stars Bengali-Telugu actress Kamalini Mukherjee and Kollywood actress Namitha as the female leads. Veteran Telugu actor Jagapati Babu plays the antagonist in the film.

3) Non-availability of required screens

Pulimurugan was scheduled to release on over 2,000 screens worldwide. Unfortunately, two Malayalam films, the Mammooty-starrer Kasaba and the Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya, Amala Paul film Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum are already slated to release on Eid. The two films – especially Mammooty’s Kasaba – may have eaten into the number of screens that the makers ofPulimurugan were looking for.


4) Clash with Kabali and Sultan averted?

The Eid 2016 holiday is set to be a busy one at the Indian Box Office. While Malayalam moviegoers will be spoiled for choice between Kasaba, Pulimurugan and Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum, the Box Office will also see the release of Rajinikanth’s Kabali and the Salman Khan-starrer Sultan. Both Kabali and Sultan are hot on trade and are likely to have a mega release both across India and overseas.

Girl Fell In Love With Mother’s Facebook Lover; What Mother Did With Her Will Shock You

An extremely weird and hard to believe incident has taken place in Punjab which has shaken the relationship of a mother and her daughter, the most pious bond in the world.

A 17-yr girl’s body was found hanging from the fan in her home on May 23 in Abohar, Punjab and you’ll be shocked to know that police has arrested none other than the girl’s mother named Manju for killing her daughter.

Yes, at first glance, it seems very difficult to believe how a mother can kill her own daughter whom she nourished with her blood for 9 months when she was in her womb and even after birth, took the best care of her. However, the revelations made by police in this connection have stunned everyone. Even more shockingly, Manju has confessed her crime.


During investigation, police found that the accused fell in love with a guy, Vijay aka Sonu, who was half of her age on Facebook and when she insisted him, he even came to India from Saudi Arabia on December 27 and started living with her in her home since January 1. Meanwhile, Manju’s daughter Deeksha also fell in love with the guy which was unbearable on the part of the mother and what she did afterward will tremble your soul.



In an inhuman act, Manju killed Deeksha by hanging her from a fan. Next, she tried to give this murder look of a suicide but failed!

It so happened that she throttled Deeksha with her dupatta and with the help of Vijay, hanged her from fan so as to make it appear a suicide case. Then the couple went out of home and when Manju’s 12-yr son came, he saw Deeksha hanging from fan. Later police arrived and disclosed shocking facts about Manju and her lover.


According to SSP Narendra Bhargav, Deeksha was an obstacle in Manju’s love affair which she couldn’t tolerate it and hence, murdered her. Manju’s husband committed suicide 3 years back and after that, she started living separately with her kids in Panj Peer Nagar. Vijay is basically from Haryana’s Rewari and got in touch with Manju on Facebook.


About 2 months back, a love relationship formed between Deeksha and Vijay which was a reason of quarrel between mother and daughter. One day, Deeksha gave warning of suicide and not only this, she actually tried to take her life by swallowing some poisonous pills. However, she was saved but Manju made her write suicide note in which property was mentioned as the reason. On May 23, Deeksha wrote the name of Vijay on her hand with something which made Manju furious and she throttled her neck with dupatta. She did not have any regret or grief of Deeksha’s death.


Even neighbors are in shock after this incident since Manju told everyone that Vijay was her sister’s son.
