You might be surprised to know that you don’t need to go to the gym to stay fit. Your daily activities burn calories and can add up to a personal fitness routine. Research indicates there are a number of everyday activities that, if done correctly, will burn 200 or more calories in 30 minutes to an hour. Check out the following activities and the number of calories they burn. (Note: Calories are based on a 150-pound person. If you’re heavier, you’ll burn even more).


Badminton is a very fun activity which can burn quite a number of calories. The longer the game is played, the more energy that will be burned. Play badminton at a moderate intensity for one hour, you will burn approximately 400 calories. Playing badminton for an hour will burn three times more calories than working out in the gym for the same period of time.


You burn 47 calories in 30 minutes of standing in line and 260 calories in an hour of grocery shopping with a cart. Bag your own groceries, take them out to the car yourself, and return the cart to the corral, and you’ll burn even more.


Washing your car works your arms and abdominals. Simply rinsing, washing and drying your car can burn 334 calories in an hour! So the next time there’s a long line at the carwash, take a hose and a bucket of soapy water and get to it.


Vacuuming the carpet will help tone your arms and legs and burn calories, especially if your vacuum is heavy. An hour of vacuuming burns approximately 180 calories, the same amount you’d burn in 30 minutes of kick boxing.


Dancing is a great cardio exercise that tightens and tones the muscles. You can burn 150 to 400 calories dancing for 30 minutes. It depends on how much you weigh, how hard you work, the type of dance, and the number of breaks you take. Aerobic dance can burn upwards of 443 calories per hour.


Your favorite childhood playground game is actually an incredible workout. Depending on your pace and intensity, it can burn about 300 calories in 30 minutes.


Throwing your laundry in the washer, the dryer and then folding it can burn more than 200 calories. And if some of your laundry needs to be pressed, add on another 140 calories for every hour you spend ironing.

Story Of The Best Indian Spy Who Served As a Major In Pakistan Army

Posted by Rahul Pandey

Ravinder Kaushik was born in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan in 1952 to a Punjabi family. He was just a teenager who loved performing theater when he was spotted by India’s external intelligence agency, RAW. Nothing much is clear as to what happened in between his first contact with the RAW personnel during the national drama presentation and his graduation in 1975. Ravinder Kaushik joined the intelligence agency after graduating and little did he know that it would turn out to be a life-altering decision.


Fast forward to November 2001 in Pakistan where a certain Nabi Ahmed suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis and heart disease takes his final breath on his deathbed while ensuring a secret passage for the last of the letters he would write to his mother. This was not a hassle for him; passing on secret texts and document across the border, it is what he had been trained for thirty years ago when he first started training as an undercover agent for India.

Ravinder Kaushik or Nabi Ahmed was India’s best spy to ever penetrate the rank and profile of the Pakistan army. He went undercover at an age of 23 after being recruited by RAW. During his training in Delhi he learned Urdu, got acquainted with the muslim religious texts, the topography in Pakistan and underwent circumcision. When he was sent to Pakistan in 1975, all his records in India were destroyed and he was given a new identity of Nabi Ahmed Shakir. Nabi Ahmed now started his LLB in Karachi University to create a perfect back story and join the Pakistan army.


He was commissioned in the Pakistan Army and soon promoted to the rank of Major. During that time he converted to Islam and married a local girl Amanat, fathering a son with her. From 1979 to 1983 he passes on critical information to the Indian defense forces which were of great help. Because of the valuable information being sent by Nabi Ahmed he became famous as ‘The Black Tiger’ in Indian defense circles, a name conferred by the then prime minister Indira Gandhi herself.

In 1983, Inyat Masiha was sent by RAW to get in touch with Nabi Ahmed. He was caught by Pakistani intelligence agencies and tortured to reveal Nabi Ahmed’s true identity. The cover now blown by the Pakistani intelligence agencies, Ravinder Kaushik was tortured for two years before being sentenced to death in 1985. His death sentence was later changed to life imprisonment by the Supreme Court.

Kaushik spent the last 16 years of his glorious life in various jails including Mianwali and Sialkot. Due to the poor facilities in the Pakistani jails, he contracted Asthma and TB which turned fatal. After enduring extreme trauma he finally succumbed to a heart disease in the New Central Multan Jail. The finest Indian spy is still buried today behind that jail.

His life still inspires a lot of young RAW officers and he is still remembered as India’s finest intelligence agent who never gave up serving his country in his death. Ravinder Kaushik will always be a true Indian soldier who gave his life without ever asking for any acknowledgement. We salute the great Indian warrior – The Black Tiger!

Hidden Wealth Of Amitabh, Aish & Many Others Revealed After Panama Leakage! List Is Shocking

Posted by Rahul Pandey
As per a report published in Indian Express, millions of documents have been leaked from a law-firm which is based in the tax haven, Panama. These documents have an account of the concealed assets earned in foreign countries by the celebrities, businesspersons and politicians. Surprisingly, this list includes the names of 500 Indians. German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung attained these documents from an anonymous source.

Some Indian celebrities whose documents have been leaked are Bollywood Legend Amitabh Bachchan, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, CEO of DLF, KP Singh, Sameer Gehlaut who is the owner of Indiabulls and Vinod Adani, elder brother of businessman Gautam Adani. The list also includes prominent International persons such as Russian President Vladimir Putin, Nawaz Sharif, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Chinese President Xi Jinping with his family and Lionel Messi , the Argentinean footballer.

The name of this law firm is Mossack Fonseca and a total of 11.5 million files have been leaked from its database. This leakage brought out in open the veiled wealth of dozens of donors who made donations to the political parties of UK, three ex-Conservative MPs and sis members of House of Lords. The list also included the families of eight present and former members of Politburo, which is
the supreme ruling body of China.

As per the report, many Indians have paid hefty amounts to this law firm for setting up foreign companies in various countries of the world which don’t have stringent taxation norms. However, this is not good news for these Indians as the law of the country doesn’t allow for it. Some tried to manipulate the law by saying, “companies acquired are not the same as companies incorporated”, while some earned abroad but instead of bringing it back to the country, they decided to keep it in the countries which are tax-friendly and some other opened their accounts in those countries for depositing the bribe earned by them or money earned through any illegal means.

Mossack Fonseca is known for helping people in attaining foreign firms and hiding their shady dealings. The firm not only sells but also manages these foreign firms and charges a yearly fee; and it has being doing it since 1977, its year of establishment. The leakage of documents was done in December 2015 and since then, 370 journalists from nearly 100 media firms have scrutinized and confirmed the documents. However, the law firm has maintained that it has not broken any law and given services to its clients in the limits of the law.

Meet This ‘YUVRAJ’ Whose Income Is 10 Times More Than Cricketer Yuvraj Singh Himself

Posted by Rahul Pandey

The Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh is known for his destructive batting and superb fielding and all the Indian fans are expecting a blast from him in the ongoing World T20; but there is one more Yuvraj who has taken the ‘Krishi Unnati Mela’ (agriculture development fair) by storm. We are talking about Yuvraj, a Murrah breed donor bull that took part in the fair which was inaugurated by the PM Modi on Saturday in the IARI Pusa campus.

The owner of Yuvraj, Karamvir Singh, was persuaded by several farmers to provide them with Yuvraj’s semen, so that they can artificially inseminate their buffaloes.

All the farmers were told to visit Sunarion village, Kurukshetra, Haryana where Karamvir has his farm in which he has maintained a highly advanced facility for collecting the semen and storing it properly.

4-6 ml semen comes out in a single ejaculation of Yuvraj which is done with the help of an electro-stimulation process or a teaser animal. With this 4-6 ml semen, 500-600 doses are made, kept in plastic straws and safely stored in containers of liquid nitrogen. Each dose is sold at a price of Rs. 300 by Karamvir Singh who earns Rs. 40-45 lakh per year from Yuvraj; however, he says that he also spent a lot of money on his Murrah breed bull.

In the words of Karamvir, “I spend roughly Rs 3,000 per day on eight-year-old Yuvraj’s food. The money which I earn from Yuvraj helps me to keep my other buffaloes in better condition. I could have charged more than Rs. 300 for a single dose, but I deliberately keep the price low as I want to carry on with this business as a social service.”
