A few minutes… All those tweets and facebook status updates will become a thing of the past. 2011 is already knocking. I can hear people bursting crackers outside. My phone is already busy beeping. And there’s a lot of noise outside. There’s one guy, who pinged me exactly at 12:00, to wish me. His message read: “HNY”. And somebody is sending me an e-greeting and forcing me view it right away. Mom and Dad called us on my sister’s phone from upstairs to wish us both a Happy New Year. I can see so many people online on Gtalk and Facebook, just like I me, everyone changing their status messages to wish the world. Wow, That’s a great beginning, I guess.
Had I been in Bangalore when the calendars changed, the atmosphere would have been completely different. At-least, it would have been far more noisier than here in Bhubaneswar, though I can hear a few people outside, wishing the world, at their loudest. I would have been among friends. We would also have celebrated yesterday in office. But, being at home, on such occasions is quite a different experience, among the people you have know since you were born.
Remembering the past 2010, it wasn’t actually long for me. Oh, And if I remember correctly, I was in Bhubaneswar 3 years back, celebrating my new year in a similar fashion. I guess, that was in, 2008, Jan 1st. For the 2009, 1st Jan, I was in Chennai. For 2010, I was in Bangalore. Hmmm, That’s strange, seems, like my next new year is designed to be celebrated in Chennai again. 🙁
Well, let’s not think anything about the future yet. It’s party time, enjoy, have fun, get ready to start afresh and be happy. Wish you all, a very very Happy New Year, and may all your wishes be fulfilled.
Talking about resolutions, Ummm….. I don’t have one. If anyone of you already has one, believe me, it never works!!!! So, go ahead, and have a blast. And since it’s a holiday(for most of us), I will enjoy even more. By the way, I am on leave till 12th of January, 2011. YIPEEEE!!!!!
