Life is routine. You wake up, eat and get back to sleep. And in between you try to be your awesome best to satisfy the people around you. And even while you try satisfying people there will be many who will still expect more from you. So in short life gets routinely monotonous. And when life gets such all you need is a thing or two that zests up your day and enhances you to go through the routine without any fuss.

So here is my list of five things that zests up my life:-

The company of my Spouse: 

Yes, the apple of my eye whose company is what I crave for after the day's end. The talks that we share, sometimes silent lightens the mood, that electric smile which peppers my mood up and that evil grin upon cracking a joke to which we laugh our hearts out are few of the moments that zest up the mundane life.

Reading & Writing: 

This is one of the things that literally takes me to another world. It liberates me into a world full of freedom with no worries at all. Be it a poem or a short fiction or for that matter even a haiku enhances my mood and zests up my life. And writing for some contests and eventually winning it is like icing on the cake.


It is said that our body and heart requires a timely detox so as to be back with a bang. And what better way then having a fun outing with friends and family. Also to take a sabbatical from work and to explore the scenic beauty, capture the beautiful moments and come back charged and refreshed is what zests up my life.

Moments where I can be a child once again: 

We rarely do get some moments or situations where we can be a child once again. Those moments or situations may crop up simply out of the blue or may be even a planned one like celebrating a toddler's birthday. Such moments and situations in life is what makes the life worth living for. Imagine becoming a vehicle where the toddler sits on your back and you roam around or making weird faces and capturing them. 


Listening to music has a therapeutic effect on me. The soulful melody relieves me of all the worries, calms me and takes me into a cinematic world. And listening to the favourite songs composed by favourite composers is the best thing to lighten up the mood and zests up my life.

Life is full of complexities but the pleasure we get is from the small doses of happiness surrounding us. And the above mentioned ones are the ones that I crave for which eventually zests up my life.

Black. What do I say? Black is omnipresent. Probably as omnipresent as the universe. You open your eyes and you see a thing in the colour black. Think of any single thing that does not possess itself in colour black. Open your wardrobe you have that black dress. That formal black shoes. A black tie that goes for an occasional informal meeting. That lucky black inners. No? Just try it for once. Am sure luck will shine brighter than the sun for you. 

So what does black mean for me? For me black is beautiful in its own mysterious ways.

Behold for the black
Elegant yet stylish
Mysterious charm

Now, the five black things that I desire for are as follows:-

  • A Black linen casual shirt and a Black polo tee is the first of the few things that I desire for. A black linen shirt paired with denims goes best for an evening party which can never go out of fashion. And a black polo tee for that romantic outing. Elegant yet classy. Somethings stay forever just as the bitter-sweet constant bickering between daughter in law and her mother in law. 

  • The Black Maxi dress for her that will make her feel comfortable, elegant and glamorous for that exclusive dinner date and will enhance the ambiance with her killer looks.

  • The round dial metal strapped Black Watch adds to the feel and a mysterious charm when worn suitably, be it for an official purpose or even an informal meet. One of my most desirous thing.

  • There are barely a few men who wouldn't be interested in technology. And with me being no different my fourth desire is the newly launched sleek and stylish yet compact The Black coloured Asus Zenphone 6. I think the phone is simply best in design and performance which is a deadly combo.

  • The last but not the least desires is that Black lustrous mane which enhances the look by leaps and bounds. A good crop of hair not only boosts confidence but can lift us along with the chips are down. 

Here are my five Black things that I desire for and till then Love Black and dream for Veni Vida Vici!!
