                 10 … 9 …. 8 … 7 …. 6…. Faaaaive…… fooooorrrrrr… thareeeeee… tuuuuuuu…. Woneeeeeeee…. Woooohooooo…. Happy New Year….!!!!!!

                This was the noise heard throughout the world on the night of 31st of December 2010 as the year of 2010 bid a good bye to all of us and presented to us a hopeful year of 2011.

                The year of 2010 has presented each one of us with varied emotions, varied dreams and has created a new chapter in each life.

                Some has had good, bad, bitter, sweet experiences and each one has learnt their lessons for having a better tomorrow.

                The night of 31st was all delight all over the world. There were parties, fun and excitement all around. Here in the city of Mumbai, there was a bit of fear along with the fun and excitement and it was because of the terror threat that Mumbai and other major cities of India had received. But to everyone’s gladness that didn’t let people hamper their plans and people welcomed the New Year with all hospitality.

                The year of 2010 has a significant feature that the year’s calendar is ditto the same to as that of 2005. And this has induced a lot of jokes too. But as a matter of fact, we take each day, each month and each year more specifically as a new ray of hope towards achieving happiness and reaching new heights of life.

                People book yachts, halls, boats, join clubs and do all the plans by which they can welcome the New Year in the best possible way. Friends gather to have fun, Families have get-togethers and it’s a moment of all happiness. People forget their worries, all their regrets, resolve differences and look forward for a better tomorrow.

                Well there is a bad side to each thing. As they say, every coin has two sides. There are many irresponsible elements in the society who indulge in anti-social activities (better not named). Due to such people; it is the police, the doctors who have to work overtime and dedicate their time to work instead of celebrating. It is heard that police were on full duty this year in the last week especially on the 31st to ensure the safety from external threats as well as to protect the innocent citizens from internal threats. Hospitals kept around 20 beds empty with an assumption that they would be getting that number of patients due to accidents on the 31st. And unfortunately their expectations didn’t go wrong. Like every year, this year too there were mishappenings that spoilt the mood of celebration of the New Year for some people. Some lost their fun due to their own mistakes while some other misfortunate ones due to other’s irresponsible behavior.

                People should therefore see to it that they celebrate and have fun but that fun should not harm others or spoil someone’s day. But hardly do people think when they have money and drinks on their mind.

                Anyways let me get back to some good stuff after narrating the grieving stuff. As the New Year approaches, children take blessings of elders. There is hugging and kissing all around. In this age of telecom and Internet bloom, people call, sms and mail each other to such an extent that the networks get jammed up. But such is the happiness of people that they keep calling their beloved ones till they get to talk to them to exchange greetings and love.

On the new day of the New Year, people get all dressed up and attend gatherings and spread love. It is a day of holiday and people enjoy it in a way they prefer. Some active people celebrate by partying while some others sit home, relax and spend quality time with their families.

People start visiting astrologers to know how their New Year would be on financial, career and love fronts respectively. People take up resolutions to follow the following year (though many give them up within a month). Walls get new calendars; everyone puts aside their old diaries and gets their brand new diaries to use. All in all everyone is jubilant that they have a new year to look forward to.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 to all my Readers. May you all have a great year ahead. May all your dreams, aspirations and wishes come true this year. Have fun and spread love.

                             ****** HAPPY NEW YEAR *********

People still use Windows XP..!!

I am pretty sure that my life is going to be in danger after a few of my friends read this post.

So I get a call from a friend. Lets call her Diana.
Diana: Hey, do you have Windows XP cd? Looks like I lost it. Me: Why do you want a Windows XP! Decorating something? Diana: Very funny! I need to format my desktop. Me: Why XP? Diana: I like XP. Me: Seriously? I don't even remember using XP. Diana: Then what should I install if not XP? Me: Please don't tell me you haven't heard of Windows 7. Diana: I have; I have it on my laptop. I needed to format my desktop; hence XP. Me: Sorry for repeating my question; but Why XP? Your desktop can't bear 7? Diana: No nothing like that. Its a dual core, 2 gb RAM. It is just that I like using XP. It has that old feel to it, like when I started using computers for the first time; it was XP. So I want to keep it as it is. Me: And what about your family; your parents and your younger sister?
Diana: They'll deal with it.
Me: Bitch Pleas…


NOTE: This blog is not a news article mentioning the result. Instead it is a blog from an Indian's perspective of how he felt about the verdict and the day he went through.

THE DAY OF VERDICT ON AYODHYA LAND DISPUTE The eve of 30th of September 2010, the clock ticked 4:30 pm. Lakhs of Indian eyes glued to the television screens surfing through various news channels. The reason was the verdict of the High court of Allahabad on the case of Ayodhya. Streets were empty, station platforms silenced; half of the hard working Mumbai was back home unlike the other working days. “This is NDTV 24x7 and we are showing you the live coverage from the High court of Allahabad. And looks like the gates are opening.” “Mamma, come out fast, they are showing the decision”, a young Rahul called his mother out in the TV room. A pool of black clothed people stepped out the gate. The security personnel gathered around the lawyers and shooed the mediapeople away.…

                I opened my eyes. A sharp ray of light struck right into my eye. I covered my eyes and looked to my left; there was pitch darkness. I was confused of the day it was; place I was in. I tried to get up and could sense a lot of pain in my back. I fell back and fell unconscious again.
                A wet feeling on my face got me disturbed. I slightly tried opening my eyes to find out a dog standing on my face. I was taken back and got up instantly. Looked around to find out nothing but dust and stones all around me. I was lying on a large piece of flat rock which was as I said then ‘Placed there for me by God.’ I checked my right hand for it had something smooth in it tickling my palm. It was that…
