The Path Of Zarathustra reflects the profound view of Parsi faith, belief, and religion.The film is a story of Oorvazi’s journey in understanding and interpreting her religion. Oorvazi is the only care taker of her grandfather and his grandfather gives her a book before he dies and Oorvazi travels to Mumbai to live with her masi. Pereus is surprised to meet Oorvazi after a long time and expresses his feeling and love for her. While Oorvazi is in Mumbai to explore the real truth and the message of the book which his grandfather gave her. Periodcially, Mystery is revealed in few layers as she meets some of the few historical characters which are very interesting and informative for her in search of truth behind the magic book. Through the course of the film Oorvazi imagines key figures of Zoroastrianism :- Kardir, Zurvan and Mazdak as real life persons giving the film a touch of magic realism. The movie is a slow paced philosophical which is essential for the story so people who love humor and action will find it not suitable for them. Overall the ideology behind the film and the vision of the director to decipher a message to the Parsi community  is excellent. The film reflects the social and moral truth of the Parsi community and how the vision to preserve the message of Zoroastrian is displayed.

Parsis of India are a unique community, however, their numbers are declining quickly. The Path of Zarathustra’ is a reflection on dwindling community and on the exploration of one’s religious faith. As per the survey there are only 80k people who are Parsis. Ban on Inter Religion marriage and other social issues are hampering the Parsi community and the film has been made to pass the message to the community to look up for the truth and move on from custom reforms and help built and preserve the Zoroastrian religion.

Maharashtra, Goa & Gujarat at Bharti Airtel.

As per my personal experience, Airtel 4g is the best network that anyone can experience. I am an existing customer of Airtel and recently upgraded to  4g, I used it for trial purpose and the speed would be usually around the 20-30 Mbps (Downloading) with the upper limit going as high as 55-60 Mbps at times which serves me well. The network strength for majority of test was 60-70%.  Airtel is a leading mobile network operator in India. I am using Airtel from the last 5 Years and I haven’t faced any issues even though I travel through train, I would say Airtel Network exists everywhere.  I have recommended to my family & friends. Airtel truly provide 4G speeds.

Their customer services are outstanding and are ready to help you whenever you demand it. Airtel has a wide network across several nations and having huge proportion of customer base in India.

The best thing about the launch is the Price factor, Airtel has made Plans available for 4G at 3G prices to ensure that everyone can afford data charges at a reasonable cost. Now to use 4G services you will need to upgrade your SIM card and of course your handset should support 4G.

#SniffSniff:- Ban BodyOdour

The moment BlogAdda came up with the activity I was excited to be part of it and was guessing as what this could be, after waiting for couple of days finally the courier guy came to my place and delivered a parcel. I was in office so my mom informed me about it. Once I reached home I opened the blue package to find a Cloth pin attached on the printed nose of a figure and I was sure it was going to be something related to body odour .

I posted on Social Media platforms and received various answers from my friends and followers. The guessing game was on and we all were waiting for the next parcel to arrive and give us another clue regarding the product.

The next parcel arrived 2 days later and it contained a small sack which had coffee beans in it. The aroma of coffee beans were so mesmerizing and I really loved the way it was packed in the parcel. By finding coffee beans I was now more confident that the end product would be related to body odour and something like deodorizer and perfumes came into my mind.

Now, we were pretty much confident that that the product is related to body odour and the next parcel just gave our confidence a boost. I found a mask in the 3rd parcel which I received and now it was pretty sure that the mask is given to protect us from body odour. The mask looked funny but it was essential afterol.
