2006~ The Wind up

Filed under: Misc — Teal @ 5:49 pm

I just cant believe that we have reached the fag end of 2006.
2006 has been a year of mixed emotions for me. A lot of joyous incidents took place, but there always is some element of sadness that prevails in people’s lives, however shortlived or stretched it may seem to be.

I happened to go through my archives and found last year’s wind up post , and I realised how things were quiet different then and how things have seemed to have changed now!
Hmm …

T.E.A.L.S.P.A.C.E is more than one year old now. I had started off this year with a craze and passion for blogging … and blogged even during the most testing and tumultous times in the past year …

  1. Learnt a lot of lessons, some easy some damn hard.
  2. We never seem to realise how blessed we are, do we? Take a lot of things for granted, we do. And yes I do love Jedi Master Yoda [who happens to be my favourite character from Star Wars Series] but I’ll not copy his unique style.
  3. Learnt to give my best.
  4. Learnt to leave the rest to god.
  5. Cant say I am superstitious, but yes I believe in providence, destiny and all that jazz.
  6. This year marked a reaffirmation of my faith in many ideas.
  7. Threw a surprise party for my best buddy, who’s birthday happens to be today!
  8. Learnt to get a grip on some areas and learnt to let go 🙂
  9. Lost faith in Indian Democracy. 99%.

There are so many path breaking stories that happened this year, some shocking, some mind numbing and some plainly numbing.

  1. The ban on blogger! Grrr….
  2. The anti reservation protests, which ultimately went in vain. I have decided not to write more about such futile things, where the citizens of a democracy raise a united uproar, and are ultimately hushed to a deathly silence. For my emotions on the same, you could always read my post on that.
  3. The July 11 train bombings in Mumbai and the subsequent bombings in Malegaon.
  4. FIFA WORLD CUP – Zidane’s (in) famous exit from football [Will miss you Zizou :-(]
  5. The verdict for Jessica Lall’s case.
  6. Salman ‘the shirtless’ Khan getting five years of rigorous imprisonment, has also been fined Rs 25,000 and sent to the to Central Jail.
  7. Kaavya Vishwnathan’s accolades on her ‘genuine’ work.
  8. Schumi’s retirement.
  9. Last but definitely not the last – Saddam Hussien’s execution, which happened before dawn today! Around the same time last year Veerappan and now him, next year, hopefully Osama.

Anyways …
Wish you folks a rocking 2007! May god shower all his choicest blessings on you and give you all that you need to achieve your dreams. Have a blast this year!

Carpe Diem.
