4. Breaking someone’s nose
And in the rat race, we leave behind something, that deep down, could be the possible solution to every single problem: The perfect food.
Why do you think the first thing people do after break ups is eat that entire tub of chocolate ice cream? Because it makes them feel good.
Food is something that will kiss your lips, play with your tongue and fill your soul with feelings (and flavor that comes along as bonus).
All of us who’ve reached legal adulthood (legal, since you never really feel adult, do you?) have stayed away from home for at least a month, to pursue whatsoever. And those of us who have stayed away, have known what hurts the heart, the mind, the soul…and the tongue the most. The awful food.
So, when you’re out some day and see those hot paranthas…grab ‘em because all you have to do then is close your eyes and feel at home. It’s worth a lot more than the money you’ll spend.
Also, when you’re home and your grandma and ma and everybody else around you (India- Mere haath ka khana nahi khaaya. Major disrespect) wants to feed you. Just eat. Shut up and eat. Jo hai khaana, Kal ho na ho, and shit.
You never know when you lose your job, or when French fries at KFC start costing over thousand rupees, you never know when your favorite restaurant shuts down, or when your favorite food gets banned (you know what happened to Maggie). In this highly unpredictable and ever-changing world, you never know what gets snatched next. So, go out there: Buy 5 Kit-Kats and 15 Ferrero Rochers, drink McFloat, gobble down some Barfis and probably order a large cheese burst pizza as well. Simple because, you never know?!
Spare yourself the sadness of walking down the lane of regret.
Trust me, I’ve studied some of my medicine syllabus well and I know that some foods stimulate endorphin release!
Chocolate has been proven to fight depression.
And maybe pumpkins and karelas have been known to cause it, still under study!
So, eat your food, be happy!
Clap your hands and tap your feet!
(To burn away some calories)
Hum ek baar jeete hain, ek baar marte hain. Khaane ka mauka bhi ek baar ataa hai, aur obesity bhi… but then there are gyms in every neighborhood.
All you need is the realization and motivation. And for that you have the music and the internet.
And of course, I said eat everything. I didn’t say quit exercising!
