The new X-Men Movie (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is scheduled to release on May 23. The film is inspired by the 1980 comic series of the same name. Premise: The X-Men send back Wolverine to the past in order to prevent an all-out war. A new nemesis has necessitated the formation of a united team of younger X-Men and present-day older X-Men. The movie apparently has a large role for Trask Industries and Sentinels. (For the uninitiated: Sentinels are giant mutant-killing robots developed by Bolivar Trask played by the recent Game of Thrones sensation, Peter Dinklage.) Here's a look at things to be excited about.(Text by: Shantanu Argal) 6

Aasheesh Sharma and photographer Raj K Raj journeyed to Mawsynram, a cluster of hamlets in Meghalaya – now the wettest place in the world (sorry, it isn’t Cherrapunji!). They got drenched, but returned with an extraordinary story. Home and dry: A girl in Mawsynram. The locals don’t bother much with umbrellas. They swear by the knup, an innovative hands-free rain shield that lets them work in the fields, dig roads and carry out everyday chores without having to grip an umbrella pipe. The rim of the shield looks like an inverted tear drop. A knup extends behind the head and also keeps the rain off the knees. 7

Have you had enough of working out in the gym? Well forget weight training. Here is our three-part series where young sportsmen show us how doing their exercises is enough to keep fit. In Part-2 of our series on sports fitness drills, former Delhi goalkeeper Pronoy Roy shows us his drills, toned down in intensity for our needs. A footballer runs anywhere between six to ten kilometres in a 90-minute game, so you could expect some running to do here. (Photo: Anil Chawla) 10
