In this work, we estimated the different entropies like Shannon entropy, Renyi divergences, Csiszar divergence by using the Jensen's type functionals. The Zipf's mandelbrot law and hybrid Zipf's mandelbrot law are used to estimate the Shannon entropy. Further the Taylor one point and Taylor two points interpolations are used to generalize the new inequalities for m-convex function.
