Looking back


Everyone eagerly waits for the New Year with lots of enthusiasm and  expectations. Like every year,  we always hope that the New year will be different and  better. I thought it would be good idea  to review the year 2012,  as it is coming to an end. Time to rewind and relive some moments, some good and some bad. I may not be able to cover all, but some of the major events. So here it goes.

16 Feb – Two fishermen who were mistaken as pirates killed off the Kerala coast by members of an Italian ship

10 March – Rahul Dravid retires from cricket

11 April – Earthquake hits Indonesia magintude (8.6 in the richter scale), aftershocks were experienced in Kolkata and Chennai and some other parts of India.

16 December –  A  twenty three year old girl who was a physiotherapy student  was gangraped in Delhi.

20th December – Narendra Modi chief Minister of Gujrat wins the assembly elections for the third time consecutively

2012 has been a mixture of some good and some sad events. By looking back, we  can smile on our achievments, collectively learn  from the mistakes, and try to make a change for the better.  Life is a learning curve and it consists of some good and some bad experiences,  but each experience helps us to grow.  I hope that 2013 brings along with it  peace, love, hope and change. I’d like to wish one and all a Happy and peaceful  New Year 2013.

    1. Yes Shekhar, we did have a lot of people from the entertainment Industry, whom we lost in 2012 . The latest Delhi Gangrape is a complete shocker which people may not forget so easily. I only hope the girl survives and hope this incident brings about.
      a positive change in the mindsets of people.
