Today is International Men’s day.

#ARealMan – the hashtag that was trending a few days ago had created quite a spur on social media. Phrases like ‘A real man’ or ‘a real woman’ are only clichés and there’s an urgent need to discard these. The entire societal pressure created on a man to be #ARealMan – a man who never sheds a tear, hates pink, never expresses emotions, has a muscular body have not only resulted in low self esteems but is also demeaning to an individual identity. It’s time we break these stereotypes.

Mr. Grey will see you now.

One can’t think of Bollywood without remembering Shah Rukh Khan. His name has now become synonymous with the film industry. He’s made a mark in both India and overseas.

So, in his birthday month we bring to you 20 reasons why SRK reigns the hearts of people all over the world.

1. His brand value is such that his name alone propels a movie to the 100 crore club. His name is enough to send his fans flocking to the cinemas!

2. His story is a tale of rags to riches; a journey that started off with a difficult childhood. He has reached the peak of his career.

3. From receiving the Sword of Honour in school to being bestowed with Frances highest civilian award Légion d’honneur, this Padma Shri awardee has truly come a long way!

4. His personal life is nothing short of a fairytale, having every experience of a typical Bollywood potboiler, from reluctant in-laws to a super successful inter-faith marriage.

5. Evergreen. That’s what his movies are. Even the re-runs of his 20 year old movies, are watched religiously by the masses!.

6. He is rightly called the King of Romance. After all, Bollywood’s love staples are incomplete without King Khan’s DTPH (Dil Toh Pagal Hai) and KKHH (Kuchh Kucch Hota Hai).

7. SRK’s movies introduced us to exotic foreign locales, from Switzerland to Paris, Dubai and London.

8. He single handedly managed to bring the name ‘Kiran’ back into existence through his, “K-k-k-kiran”.

9. “Bade bade deshon mein aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hai Senorita.”

When writing about the Badshah of Bollywood, which insolent creature can forget to mention this dialogue that SRK stole the hearts of the maidens with?

10. Till date, any two guys who have an excessive bonding and always have each others back are referred to as Karan-Arjun, after his blockbuster film by the same name.Sharukh and Salman in the movie Karan Arjun

11. DDLJ. We feel this movie deserves a point all to itself.

After all not many movies can boast of having the longest run in the theatres, playing even after almost two decades of its release!

12. He not only entertains us in movies but has now also donned the mantle of ‘producer’, giving us record breaking hits like Om Shanti Om and Chennai Express.

13. Khan is a master of many trades. His cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders has been a two time IPL champions.

14. Our beloved King has always strived to give back to the industry that gave him a name, fame, and love. 

He’s brought the Hollywood ‘Special Effects’ to Bollywood, through movies like ‘Don – The Chase Begins’ and ‘Ra.One.’

15. His life has always been an inspiration for all.

How he overcame his health issues, like his knee surgery and spinal injury to do stunts like those in Ra.One and Chennai Express is indeed awe-inspiring.

16. This witty actor has also motivated scores of people to put their best foot forward even in times of pain and hardship. A few years back, he even made ‘wearing a plaster’ a fashion statement.

17. Khan has always been active in the social work arena, jointly donating as much as $30 million at a time. He’s been part of innumerable concerts and shows to benefit charities.

18. Shah Rukh Khan says, “If you do charity for a reason, it’s not charity”.

Thus he’s never openly talked about his social endeavours, with the public only getting to know about them through the media. He has been anonymously donating to a hospital since nine years and had pledged to bear the expenses for treatment of two Kashmiri orphans.

19. His movies, like ‘My Name Is Khan’, have brought international attention to India. He has contributed majorly in taking Bollywood to Hollywood.

20. Lastly, how can we miss out the fact that SRK is originally a Delhiite! Saddi Dilwalon ki Dilli has a special place in his heart! No wonder he’s the King of Hearts!

International Internship

In a world ruthlessly competitive as today’s, it is almost impossible to impress employers looking with prior experience and a knowledge of the global business environment. What best an opportunity than an international internship to equip you with all the competencies required for you to step in the professional world.

Here are the top 5 reasons to do an international internship:

1. Get a Second Family

Meet other international students from all around the world, travel with them and create friendships that will last a lifetime. You never know when you will need a friend in the States, Germany, or Egypt. Put yourself out there, learn everything you can about their culture, and keep in touch once you are apart.

2. Perk up your Identity

Our generation knows all to well the challenges we face finding work and getting that edge over your peers. International work and travel shows independence, responsibility, and a unique experience you can offer a company. Thus helping you to differentiate yourself from the competition and at the same time creating a sense of responsibility.

3. Jackpot of Cultural Competence

Majority of us have taken the international travel experiences with our families. Learning about a new culture and a language all by yourself is altogether a really awesome learning experience which shows one’s desire to get stuck in and work alongside local people, rather than stand back and take in the culture from afar while you drift through the country as a tourist.

meet new people

4. Global Career Opportunities

Demonstrate to potential employers that you can cope in a multicultural, multilingual working environment and produce great work in the process. The advantages of gaining work experience have been highlighted by employers and careers services alike for many years now, and those same values continue to work wonders for young people hoping to boost their employability and secure that coveted first job in their chosen industry.

5. Suspend Judgements – Extend acceptance – Celebrate the Differences

Considering that “learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom, but takes place throughout life and in a range of situations” moving away from the comfort of the books and theories to a company, where putting the acquired skills into practice and facing real challenges is a must. Well, this kind of experience doesn’t offer you just a random range of benefits but it changes you fundamentally.
