At the outset, let me hope you and yours are at a very safe distance from the COVID 19 chaos. Perhaps for the first time in the last several years, we may own a diary that might have similar entries for almost the entire year to which we bid farewell in another fortnight. Largely confined to the comforts of home, exploring the world that’s within us than the one outside, most of us have had to go through several first of its kind emotions and life experiences, which hopefully will stay as a unique hallmark to the Year 2020.
It’s folly to imagine a celestial rearrangement on the wake of a New Year that’d put the invisible creature that grounded us for the year in its entirety out of action. Several hundred thousands of our brave fellow beings across the globe have put their life on the line in serving those who were infected; many others have worked hard round the clock to help produce a remedy to this unprecedented pandemic situation. Their Herculean efforts shall yield positive results sooner, enabling us to set our social life in motion again. That’s our biggest hope for the New Year 2021!
In the ‘half-filled glass’ scheme of things, this might be one of those rare New Year occasions, when our personal goals take a backseat on our New Year resolution list, giving way to the welfare of humanity at large!
The festive season, like every year, brings with it an opportunity to remind oneself of the beautiful treasures in life, the prominent of which to me is your glorious company and strong influence in my life. I stay eternally grateful for that. Thank you!
Exercising all precautions to stand against the spread of CORONA virus, as we step into the holiday season, here’s wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a great New Year 2021!
