New year!

A new year is often embraced for new hopes and a new beginning. Yes, every year indeed brings in the much awaited cheer to all. The year 2008 was good in some aspects, bad in some aspects, turned out to be a positive year for some, horrible one for others and so on.

But everyone on the planet wakes up with new hopes on the Jan 1st of every year, to embrace the next year. Is this all real? I mean what's in an other day (the next day) that changes you from yesterday?

Come on this is human after all. We talk about a broken economy, terrorism in the dusk of the yesteryear. But suddenly wait for things to change in the new year, yet what is happening is all by ourselves. Are we wanting some alien to change things for us?

This phenomenon is very human if not truly human. It is our calendar days that point out; earth has turned a year older for better.

It is amazing to think what as a species we have done to ourselves. We have created our own pleasures and pains. Say for example, Let's think whose fault is this economy? what if there was no economy? Is it good or bad?

Anyways with these thoughts in mind, let's think that every day would bring in new hopes and cheers to us.

Leaving this post with a final quote, "Everything on this planet is almost human and yet it is not!"

About this particular Para of yours - "Come on this is human after all. We talk about a broken economy, terrorism in the dusk of the yesteryear. But suddenly wait for things to change in the New Year, yet what is happening is all by ourselves. Are we wanting some alien to change things for us?"

You just cant wile away this as an “after all your human” thought, coz it is this tendency f a human being which keeps him kicking, the hope for a better tom makes your present livable no matter how worse the situation you are currently in..No wonder humans rule the planet and this one hope f things will get better tom, makes you work for it and the results are always good if not the best :)...Have a Happy New Year and see for a bright prospectus morning each day before you start :)

Well said agreed, I mean to say let's not over potray the fact that a new year day is again a tomorrow of some day. So let's make every day more lively and positive. Going by Sankar ji's thoughts on this.
any comments?

Hey Reshma,
Hi and first of all New Year wishes to you.
Well I may have to accept with Ram, because it's just another day like yesterday and what are you going to change that you didn't put the effort for, in the past 364/365 days? Of course as you said, it's this tendency of human to hope for better tomorrow. But wait a min, aren't we supposed to put some effort to create the better tomorrow?
But on the other hand, I would say let this new year be a reason for this "after all human" to put that valuable effort in creating better tomorrow or we may see a blog from Ram about the same story on 1/1/2010.
