Zesty Life

Blogadda is out with a new topic about things that Zest up your life! "Feature the five things, people or situations that Zest up your life." The topic immediately made me wonder what are those things/situations that I love doing which would zest up my life! Trust me, it took me a long while to be able to figure out the list. Maybe we are too busy doing the routine like a machine that we sometimes forget what really you want to do. But finally here's my list of the things that zest up my life.

1. Reading. 
No, I am not a nerd. Or partially, yes. Being a research scholar, people expect me to read a lot but to tell you the truth, I am not really into that sort of reading. Neither do I enjoy the stuff written for commercial purposes. It's too obvious, too run-of-the-mill. I enjoy reading what people write for leisure - there are some piece of writing which you read and it touches your heart. As Naseeruddin Shah says in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, "Doosron ke liye nahi, khud ke liye kuch likhte ho?" (Do you write something for yourself, other than what you write for others?)

2. Helping the Needy
Now, I am not saying this to show off my moral conscience. It's just that sometimes even a small bit for us can be a great impact for others. In Delhi's scorching heat, when we can sustain without the air-conditioner for more than an hour, there are a lot of people who struggle even for water, let aside chilled one. Giving them yours doesn't seem like a huge task on burden on us, but it surely gives me a bit of satisfaction.

3. Rains
I don't enjoy rains like they show in Bollywood flicks where a heroine in a transparent saree dances around the trees. I am more of a sit-by-the-window-and-inhale-the-magnificent-smell kind of a person. Nothing beats the rain for cheering me up. The calmness and serenity found in the rain is a pleasure which I can't describe in words.

4. Long Drives
Long Drives in long cars! That's what I love! Oh, and I prefer someone else driving as I am not that good a driver specially at high speeds. I would very much risk my life in someone else's hands than my own! :D Oh, wait, maybe Tata people just sprinkle their love on me by giving me their new car, Zest. Now, that would surely zest up my life ;)

5. Family functions
If you belong to a Punjabi family, you'll know that the chaos for the function starts many days in advance. From what to wear, matching accessories, not matching with others clothes, how blingy should it be, how blingy are others are just some of the tensions that we have! Then the major party well that's a different story. But family get-togethers, even though are chaotic from start to end, are the major uplift of my life. As KJo says, "Its all about the family".
