Happy New Year 2014!!!

Posted by Shreyans Jain Monday, 30 December 2013 0 comments

As 2013 fades into another new year, it is time for us to introspect on the milestones we could achieve, the promises we could keep and the hurdles that we could step-over successfully throughout the year. At the stroke of the midnight hour, as this year turns, we are presented with yet another opportunity to come to terms with life. Once again life beckons us to take a synoptic view of where we, as a society, are heading to, an account of all those contributions that we as citizens of India made to our motherland.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover. 
                                                                                                    Mark Twain

Indeed! To experience the thrill and exhilaration of success in life, a definitive goal is essential to which must be added enthusiasm and a penchant for hard work, an inherent desire to seek out problems and convert them to challenges. It is a shameful thing for the soul to faint while the body still preserves.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. 

                                                                                                      Helen Keller

At this juncture, when life is on the threshold of unfolding yet another plethora of surprises, both bitter and sweet, let us warmly welcome the approaching New Year 2014 with great zeal and optimism. It is imperative for us to make new resolutions and celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in our life, boisterously.

Here, I offer some thoughts and suggestions that may be pondered upon while initiating a voyage in the year 2014.

      1.       Make a New Year resolution :
Failure is virtually assured at the very offset because the resolutions are not made with serious intent and deliberation. It is crucial to harness New Year's temporary motivation into something that will carry you through an extended period of required effort. Often circumstances beyond our control crop up at the most unexpected and inconvenient times, leaving us baffled. So always acknowledge your partial success in you endeavour. 

2.       Don’t reuse gifts as gifts :
Mirthful, as it may sound to be, but we as humans have an inherent tendency of reusing gifts as gifts irrespective of the sentiments attached to them. This has indeed led to commercialisation of relationships, the depth of which is often estimated in monetary terms. Every gift, however big or small it may be, has some emotions and sentiments attached to them, that ought to be valued and cherished by the recipient. Prudence demands that the true spirit of New Year be upheld by sharing gifts and not disregarding them or reusing them as present for others.

      3.       Organise a New Year bash :
Perhaps, New Year celebrations are incomplete without a boisterous party. Party hard and enjoy the company of your friends and foes alike this year ahead.
CAUTION : Don’t get drunk with ecstasy to the extent that you indulge in anti-social activities or hooliganism on roads. Don’t drink and drive, particularly on the eve of New Year. Carry yourself in a dignified manner and respect the morals and virtues of the society.
      4.       Enjoy delicacies at home :
There is no such fragrance that can compete with the aroma of a delicious home-cooked supper. Shun all inhibitions and satiate your appetite! Cook your favourite food at home or order it from outside, but enjoy your New Year eve to the fullest. (You have the next 365 days to control your weight :D)

      5.       Set a yardstick for yourself :
New Year’s eve is truly an occasion for celebration. But it is also the time to peep into your future. Instead of wandering aimlessly throughout the following year seeking solace in you meagre achievements, set a yardstick for yourself. He who does not prepare for storms when no storms are indicated lacks in plain preparatory wisdom required by any rational person.

I would like to conclude with the following lines :

Strive not to be a success, but to be of value.

                                                    Albert Einstein
