I had failed an exam. For most people around me it should have been over for me. So they said or projected in their sympathetic tone. I saw it as a second chance. When I bounced back , I did better than what I had expected myself to do. The battle isn’t won yet. It suffices to know I am still fighting.
While I was struggling this past year, my good friend and I have had the chance to reconnect. After all these years we finally live in the same city. We are still discovering each other. It makes me really happy to know she is only a train ride away.
I was taken aback by the media coverage of the Virginia Tech massacre. They kept putting the blame on doctors and teachers and parents and so on and so forth. It was annoying. It is always easy to point fingers later. One generally tends to do the best they know how when put in a situation. I strongly believe that incidents such as these should prompt us to tackle situations in the future and stop playing the blame game.
How ever there is nothing like the love of a niece. Her Christmas gift this year was a scarf and hat knitted by yours truly. I don’t know about her but I know the parents wont get over my generosity for a long time. When is Rakhi any one? Muhahahaha!
For the first time this year I was determined to take photos of my home town. Mumbai. I am no talent, which doesn’t stop me from loving my own photos. I am so tired of the infamous snake charmer being the all encompassing representative of my country, that I had to take many many photos from my point of view.
All in all this has been a good year. I have learnt a lot. Lived even more. I am quite looking forward to next year. Wishes for a superb year to all of you.
