Zee Yuva - New Year Resolution Quote

निखिल दामले (ऑलमोस्ट सुफळ संपूर्ण - झी युवा)
नवीन वर्षाचं माझं रेझल्युशन हेच असणार आहे कि मी जे काही रेझल्युशन करणार आहे ते मी पाळेन. कारण ते कधीच पाळलं जात नाही. आपण नवीन वर्षातील एक महिना ते फॉलो करतो पण नंतर आपण काही ते रेझल्युशन पुढे पाळत नाही. २०२० या वर्षाकडून आपण खूप काही शिकलो. आपल्यावर खूप मोठं संकट आलेलं पण ज्याप्रकारे आपण त्यातून बाहेर पडतोय ते अगदी वाखाणण्याजोगं आहे. त्यामुळे या वर्षाने आपल्याला काहीही झालं तरी हार मानायची नाही हे शिकवलंय. मी २०२१ मध्ये माझ्या फिटनेसवर जास्त लक्ष देणार आहे. स्वतःची आणि त्याचसोबत आपल्या आजूबाजूच्यांची काळजी घेणं हि माझी प्रायॉरीटी असेल. पर्यावरणाची काळजी घेईन आणि ती आपण सर्वांनीच घ्यायला हवी. २०२१ मधून खूप काही चांगल्या गोष्टी एक्सपेक्टेड आहेत आणि सर्वात महत्वाचं म्हणजे कोरोनावरची लस याची खूप वाट आपण सगळेच बघतोय जेणेकरून आपण आपली नॉर्मल लाईफ पुन्हा जगू शकू.

Zing celebrates atrangi achievements of 2020

Ever since 2020 has started, things have looked very different from any other year. The pandemic has managed to radically change some fundamental aspects of our lives. While the world focused on how people made it through this year, from news channels to social media everyone discussed how transformational 2020 has been for them. People shared their transformational stories, big milestones they experienced, and being a changed person. Although Youth found refuge in things which according to the world are not huge achievements but for them, they are their unique (atrangi) achievements which nobody is talking about. From breaking sleeping records, enjoying lunch while being in the class, adding haircutting as one of the kind skills, and giving it back to bullies with the perfect response, the youth is proud and are owning these unique (atrangi) achievements.  Zing, through a quirky video with mother as the one who has witnessed it all shares how these achievements should be glorified as well.

The video has a fun take on how in day to day life, there were so many instances which are achievements in their own atrangi ways. Today's youth is celebrating these in this video by sharing funny yet relatable instances. With a huge reliance on social media to keep in touch with family and friends, most of us have probably seen our phone time increase over the last few months. From having a great time with friends on the college campus to waking up just 5 minutes before the online class, or taking a power nap during the online class, the youth has come a long way in 2020. The video resonates with these sentiments of the youth and speaks their language. 

We all have gone through this in 2020 and through this video, Zing talks about how important it is to during lockdown and celebrate every unique achievement.

Here's to all the atrangi achievements in 2020 which you will cherish forever and the year 2021 that we are really looking forward to

New Year Quotes from Zee TV Actors

Megha Ray who plays the role of Rani in Apna Time Bhi Aayega shared, 2020 has honestly been a year of mixed feelings for me. While the whole pandemic affected a lot of people, it was also the year when my first show went off air. Looking at the struggles of many other I kept myself together believing that my struggles are not that big, and I would make it through. And I did! Despite it all, this year also got me a role in a beautiful show like Apna Time Bhi Aayega. Rani is a very different character and she brings out the little innocent yet strong-willed child within me. While I had my fair share of struggles, this is the best thing that has happened this year and I am eagerly looking forward to 2021. While I don’t really make any resolutions, I do wish to continue working hard and entertaining my audiences. I hope it’s a better year for everyone and we can finally be free of COVID.

Pratham Kunwar who plays the role of Money Birla in Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega shared, “I believe the biggest lesson that 2021 has given us is that we need very little to be happy in life. We made the most out of this year and happened to find our joys in the simplest things despite not being able to go out or party like usual. In spite of the entire lockdown and with several people losing jobs, I happened to get 2 new shows, Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega being one of them. That’s the best thing and the first day of my shoot was the best memory I have of 2020. With the onset of the new year, I would really like to focus a lot on my health and gun for those six pack abs that I have always aspired for. Here’s hoping that everyone has a safe, sound and a great new year.”

Adhvik Mahajan who will play the role of Joginder in Teri Meri Ik Jindri shared, “While this year may have been a pretty rough one for a lot of people, it was quite a productive year for me. I happened to get my first ever short film rolling and it got a great response from the audience, friends and family. I happened to get some time in hand to devote to my health and fitness which I have been wanting to do for a while now. I also bagged my role in the show Teri Meri Ik Jindri this year and in 2021 I just hope the audience showers all their blessings and love towards the show. I would be ending this year and making a fresh start to 2021 at Tirupati Balaji and with God’s blessings I pray that the new year brings an abundance of opportunities and happiness for each and every person who has dealt with a rough phase.

Kanika Mann who plays the role of Guddan in Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega shared, “I have always believed in beginning the New Year with a fresh mind and a lot of optimism. There is no better way to begin the year with a little detour from my routine life, I will be travelling for 2 days to visit my extended family in my hometown Panipat. While my mother and my brother reside with me in Mumbai, I haven’t had a chance to meet my dad since the lockdown reopened or connect with my cousins and other relatives. Every occasion and festival celebrated with them has till date been a memorable one and nothing excites me more than to start a new chapter amidst the presence of my family. I am very excited for this trip and I really look forward to having the happiness and fun as I did during the lockdown.”

Chetan Hansraj who plays the  titular role in Brahmarakshas 2 shared, “Well, 2020 has been a tough year for a lot of us, but it has honestly taught me to not complain and be grateful for what we have. Something within me keep telling me that all these struggles are what actually make a man. I chose to brush past all these negative feelings and used my time to learn a few things in life. I learnt three to four computer languages, C++, Java script, Python and also utilized my time doing a course in Data Science. I ensured to stay positive even when I was dealing with a financially difficult time and didn’t have a job almost till September. I believe its was my positivity that really got me a great role in Brahmarakshas2 thereafter.  If there is one thing that I have learnt is that the power to control your feelings and thoughts is within oneself. I look forward to 2021.

Mugdha Chapekar who plays the role of Prachi in Zee TV's Kumkum Bhagya mentioned, "New Year to me is more about spending time with the family, eating good food and watching some amazing movies! This year has been quite a ride for everyone, and I hope the new year brings in joy and health and happiness in everyone’s lives. Wishing everyone a very Happy new Year!"

Pooja Banerjee who plays the role of Rhea in Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya said, “I have extremely fond memories of New Year. I have always visited the Church on New Year’s Eve and I used to be a part of the church choir for the tradition of singing carols and I thoroughly enjoyed it. New Year has been a festival very close to my heart. This year, along with celebrating the festival with my Kumkum Bhagya co-stars, I plan to decorate my house to keep the spirit of the festivities alive. While I do not have travel plans this year, I do plan to host a small humble dinner party for my close friends. I hope the festivities bring light and happiness to everyone’s lives. Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year."

Bigg Boss New Year Party Synopsis

 Special Task for Captaincy to mark new year celebrations in Bigg Boss 

Rakhi Sawant’s performance as Julie has shaken things up in the house! With her attack on Rahul Mahajan, the housemates are not amused at all! An enraged Rahul Mahajan asks the housemates to remove Rakhi from the house and relegate her movements to the Garden area. Rahul Vaidya and Aly are furious about Rakhi’s actions.

The entire house tries to make Rakhi understand that her actions were wrong and unwarranted. However, Rakhi is no mood to listen to anyone, be it Aly, Abhinav or Rubina. Arshi also thinks Rakhi has taken it too far but Arshi hasn’t seen anything yet! Rakhi climbs the tree in the garden and continues to spook the housemates!

With the New Year upon us, there is a festive cheer all around. On this occasion, Bigg Boss decides to give the housemates a chance to let their hair down and plans a Grand New Year Party! However, things are never that simple in the Bigg Boss House. Given how the ‘Julie Ka Badla’ Captaincy task ended up, Bigg Boss introduces a new Captaincy task! With the garden area all decorated and segregated into three separate party zones, Arshi Khan, Rahul Mahajan and Rakhi Sawant will turn hosts. Each of them have to invite the other housemates to dance in their designated party area. The one with the maximum contestants in their area will claim the coveted Captaincy!

From compliments to bribes, each of the three try their best to lure housemates into their zones. Eventually, the housemates are seen discussing with Arshi that if not herself, who would she choose to become Captain between Rakhi and Rahul. Arshi says she would like to see Rahul, as Rakhi lacks hygiene. Rakhi, meanwhile says that she will be an entertaining Captain and that she will not use her Captaincy for unfair advantage!

However, the housemates are not amused. They all point out to her recent actions and say that she is not fit to become a Captain!

Will the housemates forgive Rakhi’s actions? Between Arshi, Rakhi and Rahul, who will be the new Captain in the Bigg Boss House?

Moreover, Mikasa Floors are composed of three stability providing layers - real hard wood, a stabilizing core and a balancing layer, you don’t have to worry about the climate change. As finishing touches, just place a white lamp and a pen holder to complete the look. This vibrant and simple decor set-up will help you boost your thought process and give your best performance!

The closet charms!

As we welcome a new year with optimism and strength, let the same spirit get reflected in your dressing space. Afterall, that is where you start and end your day. We can’t deny that too many shades, textures, and prints can sometimes look complex and unpleasing, this is where a calm color paired with a bright undertone can help you create a soothing space. An urbane closet with subtle shades and a hint of light truly rejuvenates your mood.

Laminate your wall panels with the soothing essence of light grey shade that can also help you keep health and hygiene intact. For instance, go for grey colour laminate decors from Greenlam Laminates which offers a safeguard plus technology with health & hygiene features – antivirus, antibacterial, antifungal that retard and kill up to 99.99%* of viruses and bacteria which come in contact with the surface. Greenlam Laminates are the world’s first COVID-19 resistant laminates proven effective against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 virus) with 99%* efficacy in 30 minutes of exposure to the laminate surface, so that you and your family can stay stress-free and healthy. As you will go about showcasing your clothes and other precious collections, make some room for a seating arrangement in one corner. Here, you can use a bright yellow throw along with some flowers by the side to make it look effortlessly flamboyant.

Chill for children!

Now that kids are bound to stay at home for a longer time, make their space more fun, cheerful, and lively. Kids should have a space where they can have their play dates, study, or even just scribble! This space should be designed like a blank canvas where your child can explore themselves freely and feel upbeat to match their energy levels. For the walls, opt for natural veneer from the extensive range of Decowood Veneers whose neutral light shades are perfect for distinguishing other vibrant colors in your space. Since, these veneers are easy to maintain and durable, you don’t have to worry about the wear and tear of your walls.

Adding 2021’s Pantone shade- ‘Illuminating’- a bright yellow, will add a positive element in the room. So, you can add this shade in smaller elements like cushions and lamps to oomph the look. Place a soft and warm rug in the Pantone shade ‘Ultimate Gray’ so that your child too feels the encouragement and steadiness of this shade. Go for wood pattern laminates in natural light brown shade for keeping all the toys and other hobby stuff arranged at one place. Trust us, this fun and frolic space will make your child go super happy!

This new year and Pantone 2021 colors are here to spread hope and good vibes that are essential to the human spirit. Since, we truly need to feel positive inside out, these distinct home décor ideas will take care of your indoor safety and elevate your mood at the same time!
