Scientific theory of falling in love

First of all underlying all the emotion, thoughts, beliefs and hopes about love is our basic biochemistry. Humans are hard-wired to love so that they can breed.
Attraction is based on brain chemistry that included a group of neurotransmitters in our brain called monoamines, they are:
Dopamine
Norepinephrine
Serotonin
These create the feeling we experience as an attraction.

  • Dopamine is one of your brain’s “I feel good” chemicals (it’s where the term “dope” came from). It’s also involved in your brain’s motivation and reward systems. When you meet someone you’re attracted to, dopamine starts sending… I feel good chemical “rewards” to your system.
  • Norepinephrine (noradrenaline), delivers messages to your central nervous system. Norepinephrine is responsible for your ability to “block out” information that isn’t as interesting as the smart partner in front of you.
  • Serotonin regulates a lot of functions in your body, including sexual behavior and body temperature. When you are very attracted to someone, serotonin decreases your body temperature, which makes your skin slightly more able to conduct electricity. This is the reason that love can literally make your skin tingle and you say I am getting butterflies in my stomach.

Other than monoamines another neurotransmitter like oxytocin proved to help, it’s also called love hormone:
As in 2012, researchers reported that people in the first stages of romantic attachment had higher levels of oxytocin, compared with non-attached single people. Sexual activity has been found to stimulate the release of oxytocin, and it appears to have a role in erection and orgasm. It may be that the increased uterine motility may help sperm to reach their destination or correlation between the concentration of oxytocin and the intensity of orgasm.

In fact, experts say that attraction stimulates the same chemicals in the brain that addiction does, such as dopamine and oxytocin. If a boy/girl isn’t attracted to you, it’s nothing to do with you: it’s all down to the chemicals in each person’s brain.

A researcher at Rutgers University suggests that it takes less than one second for the brain to decide whether it considers someone to be attractive or not, hence this is how swipe right on tinder works.

  • You may be able to overcome or cope with this split-second first impression, or you may not.
  • If not, don’t take it personally people are not able to manage spontaneous impulses and what is judged may not have anything to do negatively with you.
    e.g. For instance, some women are drawn to men which are high risk-takers, some are more attracted to those who seem more cautious. There is nothing wrong with being either.

Understanding how attraction works may seem to take some of the mystery and magic from this human emotion. However, what it does make clear is that love and attraction is a fundamental part of how we are hard-wired. And it is on a level that is not heavily rational. And sometimes the chemistry literally is right or wrong.

Top 10 Bollywood Films of 2015

This year 2015 was sort of mixed bag for the bollywood film industry. More than 200 films were released and around 65 were recognized by the box office and audience. There were many unexpected hit films that did pretty well in the box office to very much expected films that give nothing but the disappointment to the box office.
This is the year where popular superstars like Salman Khan (Bajrangi Bhaijaan), Ajay Devgan (Drishyam) and Askhay Kumar (Baby) did their critically best films ever. And the veteran directors like Anurag Kashyap (Bombay Velvet), Madhur Bhandarkar (Calender Girls) and R.Balki (Shamitabh) shown their worst performance till date. So here are the top 10 films of the bollywood for the year of 2015 as per me. Sorry if you didn’t find your favorite movie in this list.

10. Titli (IMDB: 7.3)
titli_cee803f4-7eb3-11e5-8319-3d66022f9dc4.jpg
In the badlands of Delhi’s dystopic underbelly, Titli (Shashank Arora), the youngest member of a violent car-jacking brothers (Ranvir Shorey), plots a desperate bid to escape the the brothers and wants to do respectable job. Titli finds an unlikely ally in his new wife,though she is caught in her own web of warped reality and dysfunctional dreams of her married boyfriend. There are some difficult to watch violent scenes that can make uncomfortable to majority of audience.

9. Bajirao Mastani (IMDB: 7.0)
bajirao.png
A movie that took 15 years to come from the mind of Sanjay Leela Bhansali to the release date. An epic historical romantic melodrama of 18th century India. Bajirao I (Ranveer Singh), the second hereditary Peshwa of the Maratha Empire and daughter of Bundela Rajput warrior Mastani (Deepika Padukone) fall in love each other after fighting a battle against Mughals. The movie is masterpiece when it comes to beautiful set, classic music and costumes and compared classics like Umrao Jaan and Mughal-e-Azam, but the story is quite made up and cliched away from real history for making to more dramatic. Ranveer-Deepika chemistry did really well throught the film.

8. BABY (IMDB: 8.1)
baby-movie-still-11.jpgA team of secret agents BABY who work for Indian Ministry of Defence for a 5 year temporary task force headed by Danny Denzongpa formed in response to the 2008 Mumbai attacks whose job is to find and eliminate terrorists who are planning attacks in India. Akshya Kumar and Tapsee Panu were in totally no bullshit roles for can do anything to save their country. Although some of the elements were inspired from Inglorious Bastards, Zero Dark Thirty and Argo, but that’s bollyright.

7. Masaan (IMDB: 8.1)
22masaan1.jpg
The plot of Masaan follows two seemingly separate story arcs of Banaras that eventually converge.
In first, story of a girl Devi (Richha Chadda) who blackmailed by police for her boyfriend who committed suicide in bathroom when they get caught in having pre-marital sex in a hotel room. Devi’s father Vidyadhar Pathak (Sanjay Mishra) tries to protect her daughter by giving demanded bribe to officer. He did outstanding serious drama as we only know him for his comic roles.
In second, story of an engineering student Deepak (Vicky Koshal) from a low-caste corpse burner family working funeral pyres at ghat. He falls in love with a high caste girl Shaalu (Shweta Tripathi).

6. Dum Laga Ke Haisha (IMDB: 7.5)
dumlagakehaisha759.jpg
This is the only and the best comedy film in my list for this year.
Main character Prem (Ayshmann Khurana), a highschool dropout, hesitantly marries an educated but overweight girl, Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar). However, the couple come closer when they take part in a race, which involves Prem carrying Sandhya on his back. The movie has shows authentic linguistic and cultural influences of Uttar Pradhesh. Prem’s father (Sanjay Mishra) played a very hilarious role who can make you roll on the floor all the time.

5. Manjhi: The Mountain Man (IMDB: 8.3)
manjhithemountainman.jpg
Manjhi is a biopic, based on the life of Dashrath Manjhi, widely known as the “Mountain Man”. He was a poor labourer from a small village of Bihar who broke a 360 feet long, 25 feet deep in places and 30 feet wide mountain using in 22 years with only a hammer and chisel. Just because his beloved wife died because of that. His work is more beautiful than The Taj Mahal. Moral of the film is if a person has will power, he can do anything in the world. Also, don’t be responsible on others, what if others are responsible on you too.

4. Badlapur (IMDB: 7.5)
vlcsnap-error103 (2).png
The axe forgets but the tree remembers. Badlapur, don’t miss the beginning is one the top revenge movie made in bollywood after GoW.
Story is about Raghu’s (Varun Dhawan) unblemished life is shattered when he loses his wife and son. Victims of a bank heist, they both succumb to their injuries. Raghu takes on a journey to avenge their deaths. Varun Dhawan in all his previous films only appeared as a funny next door mischievous character. But for the first time he proved that he can be play a no non-sense psycho killer character of a 40 year old man. For Nawazuddin, I have no words to define level of brilliant actor for this role.

3. Bajrangi Bhaijaan (IMDB: 8.3)
381127-bajrangi-bhaijaan-song.jpg
Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi alias Bajrangi, an ardent devotee of a Hindu deity, Hanuman, who embarks on taking a six-year old Pakistani girl Munni ( Harshali Malhotra) separated in India from her parents. He faces numerous challenges when he tries to reunite Munni with her family after she gets lost while travelling back home with her mother.
From the story to screenplay, music to comedy everything was delivered great throughout the movie. Nawazduddin comes after the half, played a role of struggling journalist who captures all the moments of Bajrangi for his lovely motive. The moral of this film was love is beyond religion and nation.

2. Talvar (IMDB: 8.5)
irrfan-khan-talvar-759
The film is based on the 2008 Noida double murder case, in which a teenage girl and her family servant were found murdered, and her parents were convicted for the murders. The Lunchbox starring Irrfan Khan did pretty well in this film as a CBI inspector. The film basically sort out the how badly Indian police control, investigation units and judiciary system works in an unprofessional way due to corruption and rusting in the system.

1. Drishyam (IMDB: 8.8)ajay-devgn-drishyam-759
A 5th standard pass yet an intelligent man, Vijay (Ajay Devgan) runs a successful business and loves his family. When a dark incident threatens to ruin his family, he desperately tries to protect them at all costs. The film have one of the best story and screenplay I have seen in Indian film. Although it is a remake of Tamil film, but all actors including Ajay, Tabu and specially that little girl Anu (Mrunal Jadhav) performed extremely well. The moral of the film is nothing is right or wrong to prove when it comes to protecting your family.

 

EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS AWESOME MUSICAL BAND

Alt-J-fitzpleasure

Their name isn’t actually Alt-J, it’s Latin symbol delta ∆ that is created by typing holding down the “alt” and “J” keys on a keyboard while using a Mac computer. You can pronounce it as alt-j as well.

Band is quite eccentrically cool about everything. Even with their past names. Originally Daljit Dhaliwal, named after British news anchor and then later The Film which they found a band of the same name in US. And hence alt-J. The band was formed in 2007 by four group of friends who met at Leeds University.

∆ is one of the most creative yet commercial English alternative rock band of today. Their songs are avant-grade artistic that can makes you addictive with the melodious music, repetitive beats and a highly poetic lyrics.

Joe Newman, the lead singer cum guitarist. Gwil Swainsbury, guitarist and bassist (left now). Cameron Knight as guitarist and bassist. Gus Unger-Hamilton on keyboards. Thom Green as drum banger.

Currently they have only two studio albums ‘An Awesome Wave’ and ‘This Is All Yours’ of which they have received number of awards and critical claims. They get big fame by their original soundtrack ‘Buffalo’ for the Academy award winning movie Silver Lining Playbook.

The best thing about their style of songs is hat they can write songs on anything they love. It may be their favorite movie Léon: The Professional. Like they sung Leon and ‘Matilda’ based characters of that film. In the film, Matilda returns home from the grocery store to find her family murdered.

Again one more is “The Gospel of John Hurt” on the scene from the famous scene Alien (1979) where an alien burst out of John Hurt’s chest. This shocking sequence drives home the overwhelming nature of the narrator’s feelings. Fun fact is that it was written in the shower.

Song ‘Arrival of Nara’, ‘Nara’, ‘Leaving Nara’ is about supporting gay marriage and kind of saying ‘it’s ok if people want to marry people of the same sex as them because they’re not hurting anybody’. …people should be allowed to live like a deer in Nara, a town in Japan where the band visited once.

Their is one track ‘Every Other Freckle’ from their last album which is considered to be the most passionate and sexiest song of this generation. With lines like ‘You’re the first and last of your kind (Pull me like an animal out of a hole!) and ‘I want to be every button you press.’

For ‘Every Other Freckle’ song there are two versions of artistic music videos. One boy version with a hunky dude and other girl version with a next door beauty. You can check out online based on your sexual preferences.

The best thing about alt-J is about their gig. They are just made for entertaining crowd in their live performances. The crazy sounds with flickering lights on the setup will surely make anyone go gaga over it.

Other mind freaking songs are ‘Breezeblocks’, ‘Warm Foothills’ ‘Hunger of the Pine’, ‘Breezeblocks’, ‘Fitzpleasure’ by ∆. So go and check it out now.
