Thank you everyone who sent their year-reviews for my blog. It really means a lot to me. This ritual of mine is in the 7th year, and I hope to continue it as long as I'm here.
This year, I too have written my year-review, after a gap of three years. Much was happening in my life during this while, and I found it extremely hard to write here honestly, because the people I'd have wanted to write about are readers of this blog. But I've no such qualms this year.
This is an admittedly gloomy and hurriedly put up post, and I have conveniently missed out all the happy moments that ensued during this year, but please forgive me this one time, as these are the major things that came to my mind when I thought about the year that just went by.
A few years back, I was naive enough to believe that every year of life is supposed to be better than the last. Now I realize that I was just over-fitting with the training data I had. I never imagined t…
Wish you sound health, happiness and harmony with your friends, co-fellows and American environment. YD Ji and Savita have the knowledge and facilities to use the modern technology and talk to you on telephone daily and feel pleasure. I can not use the smartphone properly. Hence as our promise I am writing this letter on 25th Feb, birthday of Savita, which you also know. I am too late to post this letter, so you need not mind about my laziness. We hope that might be studying well in accordance with our expectations. We are confident that you have to make your mark in life due to firm determination, self-confidence, sincere studies and time management. In this age of IT the world is changing very fast. There is longer competition everywhere. So one has to be very careful for one's professional career.
You have to keep in mind the Upanishdic Udghosh(dictum), which was the main mantra of Swami Vivekanand. 'Arise, Awake and Rest not till the go…
Bidding farewell to 2016 with a smile on my face. It has been the toughest year of my life. Well, I guess I said the same thing about 2015. Looking at the steeply rising slope, I think I should gear myself up for a tougher 2017 :)
Before deep diving into the details, I would like to mention quick highlights of my experience of 2016:-
Worked like crazy. Yes with a sense of purpose, which has now got lost somewhere. The superficial purpose is always there of course!
Held on, just to move on and away from some people, both mentally and physically.
Participated in excursions like there’s no tomorrow. Well, two major trips in 6 months count as good enough for me.
Music saved my life yet again. This time I made sure to explore it alone, or whatever came by through random channels. It has become an indispensable part of my life now.
Tough times both in personal & professional lives. Looking back at it, no I don’t feel proud. But I do feel empowered in some sense.
