What lies ahead...

Another year flew past us in a blur....well not exactly though.366 days constitutes quite a long time span.Yet at the end of every year I am like..'Woah wasn't it just yesterday that I got so many new year wishes??'...ok maybe not yesterday...but you get the picture.And what a year has it been...so many events of importance...the global economy collapsing like a crumbling house of cards,the very first African-American president claiming that 'Change has finally come to America.',Abhinav Bindra making the whole country proud....and so many other things.....sadder,more unfortunate,gruesome,unpardonable things..like what happened in Mumbai in November.Even though the government is going to great lengths now to bring the perpetrators of peace to justice....it still doesn't make much of a difference..valuable lives have already been lost,a lotta blood has been shed,terror has been instilled in the heart of the common man.....
Anyway in this kind of a scenario....we are all set to welcome a new year into our lives...just like always.Sometimes I wonder how can we do that?I,for one,don't find a single reason to hope for something good in the coming times....okay maybe people'll say that I am one hell of a pessimist....but hullo what is there to look forward to?More terrorist attacks?another unstable government?nations waging futile wars against each other?the global climate becoming more unpredictable day by day?....
Gah what's the world coming to?Is there no hope for survival?These questions often haunt me.I wonder what disasters are awaiting us in the coming year.....(there I go again)
But here we are bringing in booby women from 'foreign' lands to pole-dance for us on new year's eve...drinking and partying our way into the new year.....wooooooo hoooo! >_>...
Well anyway I am not criticizing anyone here....it's everyone's personal choice as to how they wanna celebrate or whatever...but I'd like to say something.
Sometimes we do a lotta things without thinking....we just do things 'cause others tell us to or we do things 'cause everyone else are doing the same thing.We tend to think that this is the best option there is.But trust me..it's so not true.Before doing something you have to atleast ask yourself once....whether this is the right thing to do?whether this will truly make you happy?Sigh...if all of us took some time outta our 'busy' lives and brooded over things the world would be a completely different place....I think.Anyway...enough of lecturing already.I am not the one to show others the path of enlightenment....I have infinite number of flaws myself.But still.....thought I'd just say what I truly felt.
Well anyway....at the end of the day no matter how we feel about the future we have to face it head on.There's no running away from it.But I think if we did a little bit of thinking about all that is happening around us and tried to learn from our mistakes.....it will help us shape a much better 2009.'Cause we ourselves are responsible for all the bad things that happen to our lives.So here's hoping that we'll all change in some way or the other....for the better in the coming year.
A very happy new year to all of you!
