Zest Up Your Life

Zest Up Your Life


If there is no zest in life,there is no life at all. We have converted ourselves into machines to work day and night killing our desires to enjoy this wonderful life. Unless we encountered some people or visit a place,cherish a moment,situation,food we don't realize how dull and monotonous our lives have become. Then an urge to break all shackles of our boring routine lives emerges inside which encourages to add life to days and not days to life. That urge is zest.

We all in the course of our mundane lives creates some moments or find someone/something which zest up our lives. I too have things,moments,people who zest up my life:



1. Long Drive: A long drive on an empty road surrounded by trees from both the sides is what zest up my life. I can drive miles on such roads in a comfortable car like Tata Motors Zest which is having cutting edge design , a look to give you ardent following and never before connectivity option to connect your smart phone with the car. Away from the hustle-bustle of city roads right into the nature's lap enjoying cool breeze coming from lush green trees surrounding the road is a heavenly moment. You needn't required your car AC to cool your senses at that time. The smell of green lush tree leaves, feel of sunshine filtered through tree branches, smooth ride, would surely transport you to some other magical world full of zest.


2.Writing: Writing zest up my life like no other thing in this world. I feel relieved,complete,relaxed and possessed with an unknown power when I sit to write. This act as a medium through which I roam in large mountains, wide forests, fast flowing rivers , unending universe, I through my writing whether it's a poem or a story pour all my feelings, anger,love,concern,etc for the things which strike a chord with my heart or which shake me from inside. Filling empty papers with some meaningful words is like giving life to a soulless thing. It zest up my life by introducing me to the life itself.


3.Movies: Movies are a mirror to our society. The unheard voices of the masses. The unwritten story of deprived. The unfulfilled dreams of common man. They have it all one relive a lifetime with each good movie one watches. Movies helps you to unleash yourself along with refreshing your senses. When I watch a movie I forget all my surroundings, they are actually literature in motion. They introduce to the world where everything ends in a happier mode Movies are not always meant for entertainment, they show you harsh realities of our society unknown to us. They give a dream, a hope, an aspiration and most importantly zest to our lives.



4.Politics : It may sound absurd to many but yes politics and political discussions add zest to my life. I enjoy discussing various political aspects. Try to find hidden agendas of governments and political parties. If you ever feel lonely and boring tune into any news channel airing debate on a certain topic and you will find your condition improving seeing their blame game. How they shift the topic is another interesting thing to observe. It is politics which shape our lives by forming public opinion, it is also politics which unites the nation in many ways. Whole nation speak in one voice against any wrong political statement. Politics never let rest come into my life which is the reason it adds zest to my life.


5.Music : It is not wrong to say that music has the healing power. It can mend your broken heart, heal your painful soul and even give you courage to face the world. Whenever I feel low and a decrease in zest I prefer music. Indian movie songs, qawallis, melodious harmonies or any other symphony it acts as food for the soul.  You can forget the story of a movie but it was its songs which make it evergreen. In time of despair each word of a song appears powerful enough to enlighten and strengthen your heart. Music has the absolute and unique power to add zest in our life.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
