New Year Wishes

A Very Happy New Year to all !!

Yeah, I know it's a bit late for wishing, but the warmth of the wishes, I guess, is still there. It's just that I did not feel happy enough over the turning of a calender page, and sharing that happiness with every Tom, Dick & Harry in my Facebook friend list. I wonder why people go bonkers over getting a new calender...I mean I am hardly able to fathom why that Uncle Scrooge, who lives down the street, is suddenly super happy to spend close to a fortune (well, at least to the evergreen 'I-am-short-of-cash-at-the-moment' type people like me, it is a fortune :P) on just a bunch of bottles filled with a funny & bitter tasting liquid, and some fancy sounding food....and why in a party some complete strangers, who have never met before, and will, I guess, never again, hug each other and shout like madmen when the purposedly switched off lights suddenly come back a moment later at 12. I guess I'm sounding like a dear ol' pessimist. But I am not. It is these people only who are. They only are the ones who will criticize the authority & blame the government for the all the things (mostly bad), which they see around them, and will never ever give a penny to that waif by the footpath. This time I was simply shocked to see the amount of money people spend on these new year parties, not only in India, but all over the world !! Wish they could just give a tiny fraction of that amount to the needy. I really wish they do !! If I were earning, I would have done, and I know I will when I will have enough bucks in my pocket !! All this was enough to put me off the 'New Year Spirit', and so here I am- a fortnight late ! (Sometimes I think I live in too ideal a world !!) Anyways, with new year comes new wishes...and new resolutions. I have already decided upon and broken the latter [:P], and so it is only the wishes I can ask for. Well, I don't really know what to wish for.....the 'I-wish-all-the-best-things-for-all-the-people-on-this-earth' kind of wishes are not really me- I won't be really honest if I'll be asking for good grades for the girl who has, since childhood, been jealous of me, or if I ask for good health and long life for all the criminals and rapists on this planet, so that they may carry on with their noble and pious deeds for ages. So I have decided to be a bit selfish and wish only to myself. I wish myself all the good health so that I am able to work harder and get better grades, and accomplish all that I have always aimed for ( and I'm neither a criminal or a rapist, I assure u !! :P ), professionally, and make my parents proud of me. I wish myself all the happiness in life, so that I may pass it on to as many people I can, and in all the ways I can. I wish myself a lot of money, so that I may be able to give it someone who really needs it and not be a mute spectator when he/she needs it the most. I wish myself all the strength of mind, body and spirit so that I am able to be myself when the entire world is doubting me and my dreams, and not let down the few who had believed in them, and yes, I wish that all the best things in this world happen to a certain person I know, even though we haven't talked since ages. I know I can be real selfish and can carry on wishing all the good things myself for hours, but I guess I will stop now. All this monologue has made me real hungry and I guess I will catch up some snacks.

Bye for now.
