And The New Year Is Here. Happy 2010.

January 2, 2010

2009 was a busy year with a lot happening in the  twelve months. The Indian elections, and the Congress’ stunning victory. The BJP’s continued internal drama. The global economic downturn. India’s rise to the top in world cricket, and the continued decline of the national sport (Hockey, in case you didn’t know). 3 Idiots. Big Boss 3.

More significantly, there was the return of the prodigal son to the land of Snake charmers and Elephants. You know who i am talking about. Me.

This blog did well for itself, and continues to be a huge passion for me. I have been able to post rather regularly even though the last month wasn’t that productive. The reader base has grown, and all you wonderful people reading this blog totally rock. I became a member of the DesiPundit community, as well as BlogCritics. Twitter has proved to be an amazing tool and I have got to know some tremendous people via that medium.

2010 holds a lot of promise in personal and professional life.

I would like to see if the time taken for my daily tri-state commute keeps increasing or will it reach a maxima and then drop to saner levels. I would like to see Delhi do well for itself in the Commonwealth games, despite all the attempts by the official agencies to make a complete mess out of the event. I would like to eat more mangoes in a few months come summer. I would like to do a lot more on this blog, including being more regular with posts (and replying to comments). I would like to know for sure whether the world is indeed going to end in 2012, so that i can just get done with that book already.

Meanwhile, here’s wishing you all a wonderful new year. God bless you, and hope all your wishes come true.

    thanks for wishing us a wonderful happy new year-2010.
    I wish you and your family a very happy and prosperous this year and pray ALMIGHTY to bestow all his blessings on you and also to those who come in your contact.
    Let all your dreams be fulfilled to your satisfaction and we should continue to get post from you to enrich our knowledge.
    worry not for 2012, but we should resolve to do our duties both at home and in work-place faithfully, honestly and sincerely,and also keep remembering ALMIGHTY as His blessings are being showered on us all the time

    wish you lot of happiness and achievements in this year 2010 and also wish all your dreams be realised
    Please be sure the year 2012 is not going to be the last year for all of us.
    That stage will come only when there will be total failure of law and justice and there will be no respect for seniors/parents/brothers and sisters , also no love ,caring attitude for juniors in every walk of life.This is purely my perception.
    So please feel free and enjoy life and let us enjoy with your posts regularly.

    Happy new year to you too! And congratulations on growing this blog to what it is now. Just want to remind you that you’re a little behind on one of your resolutions: I would like to do a lot more on this blog, including being more regular with posts (and replying to comments)”.

    Looking forward to more of your posts!

    Good luck with the book. Everyone seems to be on and off with their blogs lately. Is twitter the blog killer?

    Happy New Year to you! May your fond dreams become a reality…

    As far as my knowledge goes, the Killer Bees didnt come to the US, the asteroid lost its way coming towards earth, In 2000 the world of computers didnt collapse, Nostradamus’s prophecy is true only after the Fact, Christ didnt return when he was supposed to have, I didnt see Kalki return either, .. so 2012 is another legend that will occupy our minds until it decides to happen.

    @Rajinder – Thanks for the note.

    @Kavi – Thanks for the wishes!

    @Dinesh – Thanks!

    “That stage will come only when there will be total failure of law and justice and there will be no respect for seniors/parents/brothers and sisters , also no love ,caring attitude for juniors in every walk of life.This is purely my perception.”

    I agree. I also wonder how far along we are down that road!

    @Gochi – Thanks for shaming me! I know i haven’t really started this year that well. Work’s been nasty, but hopefully things will get a little smoother soon.

    @life story – To you too!

    @Xylene – Thanks. Twitter has certainly killed many blogs. But then this blog is nowhere near being dead, and for me amreekandesi.com is way bigger than Twitter.

    @Mysoul – Happy new year to you too!

    Thanks for breaking it so gently! And here i was, planning to chill out the next few years, enjoying all that life has to offer!
