Wishing A Grand Year 2015

In essence, this is a Thank You note! Just that to do so, I'm leveraging strategic part of the Calendar Year. Like the previous years, I say again that I don't nurture any expectation to see my life going down a new road full of roses & only roses just coz starting tomorrow I'd have a new calendar to look at. Most of us know life incessantly offers varying flavours of experience, be it the first month of an Year or the last one; it hardly makes a difference. I hesitate to believe that we ought to wait to flip through a dozen months on our calendar to adminster a positive change in life. As they say it can be "Here and Now" not necessarily post a New Year Party hangover.

Well, then that begs an explanation of why I'm doing what I'm doing now: (i) historically, I've shown up at this time of the year, every year, to reinforce our connection and I continue to love doing that (ii) all of us tend to be in a reflective mood around this period, taking stock of all moments in the last twelve months that would have made our Mom feel proud, some otherwise, as well to beg forgiveness for the mistakes committed, also to thank God for giving strength to accept life's event with a sense of equanimity. As much as I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to you on a daily basis, it might seem a rather weird act, so it's perhaps best done at a juncture as this one, when we all seem to stay in such thoughtful mood.

So, thank you to have chosen to connect with me one way or the other, more so for maintaining it. Thank God for making that happen. I want you to know that I've been hugely benefitted by the company you offered, by the kind help rendered on occasions innumerable. Packaged alongside this expression of gratitude is also my best wishes to you for a grand Year 2015, add to it my prayers for a balanced life.

Rock the Year 2014 Farewell party, and have a marvelous Year 2015!

Seasons Greetings & New Year 2014 wishes

I'm a bit early than usual. The intent of course is not to get it done with, but to express myself, before you all get busy with the holiday actions & New Year Celebrations. I've never been so fond of New Year hype, because like many of you, I'd think that the positive changes in life can be brought about anytime and not necessarily as a part of New Year resolution. Plus, to tag a Year as 'good' or 'bad' seems folly, as there never was a major shift in the regular pattern of life everytime I changed my calenders. Life may continue to throw surprises, some pleasant, some not so.

Perhaps a slab of one dozen month is a reasonable checkpoint at which one could engage in self reflection on the progress made thus far. In that sense, let's hope we use this occasion to celebrate the joy in life, leave behind all miserable moments, all the same carrying the learning from it into a fresh set of another twelve months. Personally, the year that's bidding farewell to us in a handful of days time did make me look a miserable man at times. That's just one view though. Through a different coloured glass, I realize how profound a learning experience all of them happened to be. My hope is to use all such learning to translate life's events into positive experiences.

All personal musings aside, I'm here to tell you how grateful I'm for your company. Being connected with you through a channel set up by someone unseen is to me one of my true assets. Thank you for being there and I want you to know that you stand the reason for my smile on situations innumerable. Along with my wishes to you for only happiness in the year to come, my prayers for wisdom to take life as it comes and look at its events with great equanimity. Wish you pleasant holidays and a promising Year 2014!
