Reluctant to leave the bed and face the New Year? Well, we give you not one, but ten reasons to be excited about!
2012 may have been an eventful year, but from where we are standing, 2013 looks a hell lot more promising! So get rid of that hangover & skip out of bed, there’s a brand new year waiting! Here’s a bite sized preview of what 2013 has in store:
Google Glass Debuts: Yes, the one gadget with the power to make your swanky smartphone look like a clunky piece of metal is here. Though most people wrote off these ‘augmented reality’ glasses as an urban myth, Google finally decided to stop tormenting us with the pictures and is ready to present the real thing, early 2013!
Samsung Presents Galaxy S IV: After breathing down Apple’s neck for most of last year, word has it that Samsung is ready to play the ace up its sleeve: Samsung Galaxy S IV is all prepped to set foot in the tech world, with its 5 inch OLED display, 128 GB of storage, 3 GB of RAM, and an ARM Cortex A15 quad core!
MTV Bloc Party: Partying till dawn is the ultimate dream – But wait, why stop after one gig? Why not carry on to another and another? For the first time ever in the EDM history of the city, MTV presents a Bloc of parties, headlining the hottest DJs of 2012, including Alesso, Deniz Koyu, Deniz Koyu, Opiuo, Cosmo Klein, Jean Elan, Simon Dunmore and Shovell on percussion! Oh, and we decided to add a couple of cool beachside parties, beer arena and some massive after parties to the mix…. Need we say more?
Swedish House Mafia Returns: Their Mumbai concert may have been pulled off at the last minute, but don’t you worry child. Because SHM is returning to India, to continue where they left off! The EDM supergroup is making a second trip to India this January, as part of their global #OneLastTour series concerts, just to make up for the cancelled show last November!
When Salman Met Psy: Pandeyji showing off his Gangnam moves even as Psy thumps to Character Dheela Hai. The cricketers of Celebrity Cricket League are sure going to have a tough time keeping their head in the game, what with two of the biggest names in the entertainment industry coming together for the opening ceremony!
A Royal Baby: Move over Aradhya, a new celebrity baby is set to take over our hearts; a pretty royal one at that. Late 2012, the Royal House announced that our favourite royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, were expecting a tiny bundle of joy!
IPL 6: Last year’s edition saw some scuffles, some molestation claims, a couple of match fixing charges and one underdog team lifting the cup. And if that is a benchmark to go by, we are all expecting one helluva tournament this summer!
Race 2: Braving the January jinx that has plagued lesser films like Players & Chaalis Chaurasi, director duo Abbas Mustan have decided to go ahead with a January release for the sequel of 2008 suspense thriller, Race. And even before that, we have Vishal Bhardwaj’s comic caper, Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, releasing on January 15, making for an eventful start to the year indeed!
Tony Stark Returns: Even though we all had a good dose of Iron Man in last year’s Avengers, our appetite for this armoured hero seems nowhere close to satisfied. Well, the wait ends this April when we finally get to see if the action sequence with the 40 Iron man suits is as epic as the stunt coordinator said it would be!
Thor Makes A Comeback: Loki may have been deported to Asgard in disgrace once Hulk was done beating him to a pulp and The Avengers may headed off in the sunset after a well deserved shawarma break, but the adventure continues for our favourite hammer toting God, Thor, this November!
