(…..writing on eve of the 1st day of Vikram Samvat 2071)
Here’s wishing you all a Joyous Deepawali & a Healthy, Happy & Prosperous New Year!
Been away from here for too long….. actually more than a year has passed since I or any of you guys have shared anything here. Time to change that.
A lot of water has since flown under the bridge. Some of the Sunrise Parivar kids have entered adolescence while a few are just about to hop out of it and enter early adulthood – the unabashed youth. The magical age at which anything seems possible & achievable.
Our country has also witnessed paradigm change as far as politics is concerned. BJP has achieved total majority in parliament and is also routing its opponents in the assembly elections, state after state. It has decimated opposition recently in Haryana and Maharashtra assembly elections.
Cricket has lost ground in popularity. Kabaddi has gained and other sports have also picked up. Hope this trend continues. Equation is simple, if other sports also get equal attention, our medal tally at international competition improves BUT on the flip side, if we keep loving cricket blindly, bank account of cricketers, cricket administrators and ad-makers grow fat. Choice is yours to make.
Our honorable PM Shri Narendrabhai Modi has launched Swachha Bharat Abhiyan. I had once heard a dialogue in a movie which inferred that we get what & how we think or want, i.e. we get our police exactly how we wish it to be like & we get our politicians exactly how we wish them to be like. So it is us that need to change in order to bring success to this humongous task that our PM has initiated. Come, let us all take this pledge that we will not litter and we will not tolerate anyone littering in the area close to our residence & shop or office. (doesn’t mean that we go and pick quarrels with anyone who litters around, instead we clean the dirt and then request him/her to not litter anymore)
