Year that went by, and the one ahead…

WISHES FOR A WONDERFUL 2015…

One would like to begin the New Year 2015 on an optimistic note. I feel that the year that went by didn’t offer me much to rejoice with. The passing away of my father, a dear colleague, the unthinkable slaughtering of small children in Peshawar, the death of 17,000 due to Ebola,and nationally the riots in Trilokpuri and the carnages in Assam, the list is too long to list here… when intolerance and hatred for fellow human beings seem to be sweeping across the globe, including our country, let us strive to give our mite to make the world a safer place for the sake of our children.  Let’s give peace a chance.

I reproduce verbatim what the iconic John Lennon once dreamed about the world. Such profound words …

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no country
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one.

  • Subhajit Ghosh: Your wish has been granted, and look how! Even NDA possibly didn't dream of this huge victory. Let's hope they deliver, and take the nation forward.
  • mystic wanderer: Third Front would be disaster, and UPA (again) would be a severe step backward. BJP/NDA led by Modi seems the only worthwhile choice.
  • WB: You're very welcome.
