The thirty first of december – late in the night when it’s about to strike twelve, you know you’re stepping into a new year! I’ve been through twenty of them so far – nothing exceptionally great – but each of them sepecial in their own ways. The dawn of a new year seems to be everyone’s chance to change – and even I took a resolution five years ago which I till date stick to – never to take another resolution! Oh come on! It’s over-rated – if you need to change something, you should do it right away – not wait for the end of the year!
So coming back to how my new years’ eve has been – every year it’s been different – I’ve had dad’s friends come over several times, I’ve spent one in college watching my good ‘ol Chancellor cut a 2kg cake to celebrate the new year (?!), spent quite a few of them sleeping – but the worst of all would be the one (probably three years ago) where I sat up all night with my sister to watch Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. I mean, seriously, I don’t think there’s a sadder way to spend new years’ eve than to watch a Karan Johar movie!
This year was pretty special in its own way – I’ve spent the night online. Wishing others, hugging family folks, and calling people up. I guess I’m not much of a party animal myself – but who knows – I’d probably land myself in a pub one fine new years’ eve! Who knows! So here’s wishing you all a very happy, prosperous, resolution-filled new year! Cheers!
