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…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
