Happy New Year 2017

Another year passed with several ups and downs. 2016 has come to a passe now but it has touched everyone be it in or out of India.

Demonetization had been the talk of the nation at its fag end, many supported and some did not stop at politicizing it and there were some trying to take advantage. As we enter 2017, hope to have one less thing to worry (carrying currency notes) and make transactions via plastic money or online. Lets enter new year with more point of sale machine & people, banks and shopkeepers keep aside their tax saving ideas aside and adopt this change to make India great again.

Wish you all of you and your near and dear ones a very Happy New Year 2017 and no one to struggle for cash.

One more year – 2016

It’s the time of the year for that customary New Year post. Just before writing this, I finished 2 posts in quick succession Basic Necessities and Kejriwal – Raising Stakes. Undecided what I should write (more), so I looked back. Last year was one of the times when I was quite low and also lost trust of some people. Devoted some more time to blog (yes, wrote a little more than earlier years), disconnected from social media (read Facebook). Due course of the year, I’ve understood its part of life. You win some and you lose some and as they say I’m back on my feet for now.

I cherish, this has been the most successful year of my blog and post related to SBI online banking has been most commented on. Yes! I count comments because I’m not in the league where unique visitors count. My unique visitors hardly go over 5 fingers but the response for this post want me write more. I shifted my house couple of months back and still coping with new address.

Even though my posts have been as old as 2009 but reposted due to domain name changes, which has screwed the timelines (oldest post in this blog is shown as 2010). I never had a fixed staring point but now it’s time to ask 2016, where to now?

Wish you all and your near and dear ones a fun-filled and prosperous New Year – 2016

Turning another page – New Year 2015

For past some years, I may not be regular with my posts but New Year is something, I’ll ensure to post on. Well this year I took some liberty. Before the end of the year, I enjoyed a long leave. Not that I desperately wanted one but something which I could avail and did not want to miss.

This is the second time I’m in Swindon, UK but this time it is with family which makes a lot of difference. All along this 6 months of stay there had been some ups and downs. The most I could take away is “communication”. People may not realise but not communicating correctly not only cause issues to others but also snaps some good relations. But that was my personal experience.

Everyone knows where the world is heading. You must be in a dungeon if you don’t know. Lot has been changed in 2014. Narendra Modi is PM of India, US threw in the red-carpet for him (after denying him Visa), Congress mostly wiped out, we reached Mars yet flights go missing. Then there are things which are still haunting us, fights over religion, rape, inequality, security for life and job.

Things will change and will become better but till then let’s do our bit. Live, laugh, share, cheer, care, protect, heal, love, communicate.

Wish you a very Happy New Year 2015!!!

New Year – 2014

At stroke of midnight, another year will be history.

For Delhi, a party less than a year old trumped the ruling party for 15 years which was reduced to ashes but still it formed the Government (which is a different story). Some turning point decisions over Nirbhaya and then there was one over LGBT. Controversies still rampant and then someone won Bigg Boss. Mass destruction by floods in Uttarakhand to disaster prevention in Odisha. We have started our run to the Mars yet we struggle with things here on Earth. Scams which ruled headlines last year were overshadowed by the hopes that something better is coming up.

With this hope we bid adieu to the year 2013 and welcome the New Year 2014. Wishing everyone a healthy, wealthy, safe, sound, prosperous New Year.

The New Year is here

Many places have replaced their calendars and in few hours rest will. It doesn’t matter we change clocks or calendars unless we change something.

Year 2012 was supposed to be year of doom as per people studying Mayan culture but that did not happen yet there were signs of end is near. Many natural calamities and sudden death of some known personalities. Some moments to be proud of and others direct a much required introspect.

To preach is easy but to follow is equally difficult. Wishing everyone a healthy, wealthy, safe, sound, prosperous New Year and we learn to be better human if not all the above.
