There are chants and wishes for a Happy New year today wherever we go..
There are celebrations galore..
There are hopes, dreams, aspirations & resolutions even for those who don’t or won’t party the night out to ring in the New Year..
And why not!! Do these changing dates on the calendar not fill us with hopes for a happier, healthier, brighter & better tomorrow? They do.. It’s hope that make the world go round.
Amidst all this hullabaloo, let’s not forget the less fortunate ones.
A compassionate friend of mine always says- “नानक दुखिया सब संसार” We think that our pain and our troubles are all that there is to this world.. But it isn’t so…… The world is full of all kinds of suffering and misery.
Let’s not overlook the ones whose life is a graver struggle in the absence of resources that we take for granted. Let’s clear some space in our hearts and minds for those whose suffering never relents. Let’s wish for a better tomorrow for them too. Let’s be grateful for whatever little or plenty that the Almighty has bestowed on us. Let’s resolve not to complain about our circumstances when there are others who would gladly swap lives with us. Let’s try and look beyond ourselves and do something worthwhile this year for the ones who really need it…
Let us make this year count for us & for others..
I wish you and your family a very HAPPY NEW YEAR..
May this year see you through your trials, may it grant you courage to face adversities & overcome them, may there be triumphs and reasons to rejoice. Have a good one..
