We all knew chocolate is addictive but now hipster clubs from Germany to Los Angeles are experimenting with a whole new way of consumption – basically snorting raw cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate.

So what really goes on in your body when you get a chocolate high? It might be legal but is snorting chocolate completely safe?

You might have recovered from your Eid feast already, but I have a feeling that the Sultan hangover will linger till a sequel comes along. Yes, the film has been in theatres only for two days and trade experts are pretty sure it’ll cross the Rs 100 crore mark as early as on day three. So, if this one doesn’t deserve a sequel, I don’t know what does. Here are 5 reasons why I can bet that we’ll get to see more of Sultan, very soon!

Each year, a little over 30,000 people are murdered in India. Swathi’s murder in broad daylight, at the Nungambakkam station, is only one such incident, albeit one that has forced us to finally have a conversation about stalking. And even though Kollywood influences, propagates, and celebrates the ‘culture’ of stalking as a trope for romance, here is why it is wrong to lay the blame at Kollywood’s door.
