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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
