new year

new year stands waiting,
till the last cracker has cracked...
then it ambles in.

Hi Venu sir,
Thanks, lets hope we both live through this one too.

why this glum outlook at such young age, doctor?
hope, like despair, is a drag for a bird in flight.
perhaps we cannot help looking back, looking ahead. but i have seen it should be to know where we are, to know the moment, or it will pull us down.

Greetings from the land of riches,
Yet we are beggars and looser here,
Still,we smile at newyears with hope.

greetings to you too, Sapna.
Sumi, i don't know whether i have conveyed anything in these lines. we journalists usually finish work late in the night. back home from work, i spend some time each night on the rooftop, allowing the day's sediments to settle down. sharp at midnight december 31/january 1, there was fireworks from many distances and many directions all around me. they were bidding farewell to 2009. rockets and crackers went tup-tup-tup. then there was silence for sometime. i found the new year waiting politely behind the curtain for 2009 to finish taking its final bow on the stage. a matter of etiquette and good behaviour.

I just wonder who might’ve told the New Year to be so patient, like an unusually disciplined cat. I listened to the crackers, the TV, and the conversations downstairs as I lay there on the neem leaves staring at the roof as the clock struck 12 heralding the New Year, unforgettable. Once again wish you a very happy New Year.

PS: I’m back and rejoined the office this morning.
