The Late Show with Stephen Colbert recently took its Trump criticism to another level, introducing a brand new segment: the “Trump Attacked Me on Twitter” Hall of Fame. The inaugural ceremony (video above) saw Morning Joe’s hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi winning the honours.

The seven-time recipient of Trump’s Twitter rampage, Brzezinksi is the first inductee of this Class of 2017 Hall of Fame. “This is truly an honour of a lifetime,” she says, as she accepts the award from her co-host, Scarborough.

Comedian and political commentator John Oliver is the third member who’s been inducted in this special tribe. Oliver has been at the receiving end of some of Trump’s Twitter rage as he has often called out the United States President’s inappropriate behaviour. Trump once tweeted: “John Oliver had his people call to ask me to be on his very boring and low rated show. I said “NO THANKS” waste [sic] of time & energy!”

Except, Oliver says that is complete lie. “...It was very odd to be on the receiving end of a lie that was that confident from someone who is now president. We never asked him,” he said. “So it was a total lie, and a meaningless lie. In fact a lie so meaningless, it almost becomes meaningful. Because what kind of moron would lie about something this pathetic?” But being inducted in The Late Show’s new Hall of Fame, he will “cherish it as a truly horrible memory,” he said in the video below:

If YOLO is your mantra, get ready to live it the right way

So much to do, so little time!

Carpe Diem! We are a part of the generation that truly knows how to live by those words. We understand the value of everyday and believe that life should be lived in the moment. We fear nothing, except maybe the fear of missing out. We live for an adrenalin rush that keeps us young and makes us feel alive. And what makes this spirit more powerful is that it has captured our collective pulse and has created a refreshed way of life.

Planning for the future has never been our forte, our strength lies more in fuelling our wanderlust and collecting memorable experiences. We love our independence, our freedom of expression and thrive on an ambition of pursuing many passions. How do we keep this spirit alive without letting the rigours of life weigh it down? Maybe it’s time we take a break from seizing the day and pause to look ahead.

Start by making a simple vision board and include all that you want your life to be. Do you dream of sailing across the world or sharing your ideas through your own YouTube channel? Do you see yourself travelling the entire world as a blogger or starting your own café frequented by artists and musicians? Whatever life goals you put down on your vision board can be achieved with determination, passion and a little bit of planning.

Five years ago, IDFC Mutual Fund initiated the conversation on planning in advance for what you might need in the future through the movie ‘One Idiot’. The protagonist of the movie “Bugs Uncle”, enlightened many young Indians about the importance of planning their lives and finances.

Bugs Uncle has returned to once again share his wisdom with the youth and provide a fresh perspective on life. The movie ‘Return of One Idiot’ - an Amole Gupte film and an IDFC MF initiative, shows us how, if we don’t pause for a moment and care to define our future, it’ll lead us down a road none of us wants to visit. And while it’s completely understandable something so far away is tough to think about now, it’s something we shouldn’t neglect either. Watch Bugs Bhargava give you his insights on life in the video below.
