zero in on zero six

As the clock strikes midnight and we step into 2006, I take this opportunity to convey my best wishes to all my fellow members of the forum / bloggers for a happy and prosperous New Year.

Mother Nature loves to continuously throw us into tizzies; she wants to test us at every opportunity, our patience, and our resistance powers. We have to accept her challenges, brave the odds and emerge winners. She loves winners as does others – therefore, on this auspicious occasion, let us resolve to fight our battles and not embrace defeat even before attempting to cross swords. Failures are an inseparable part of life – if we permit them to get on top of us, we are doomed. Always remember that the child has to stumble before it learns to walk, you have to display innumerable bruises on the knees and the elbows before you master the intricacies of cycling – these obstacles pave the way to a rich and fulsome life.

Like failures, you must never allow successes to rob you of your basic faculties of being a good human being, of being an individual who one wants to mingle with whether at work or in the social circles. Once you attain a stature, rise to a certain height, it is extremely difficult to maintain it – a fall can be very painful.

Each and every member of our fraternity have experiences to share, may be from work life or from personal life; let us try to disseminate these to as many corners as possible so that someone somewhere can benefit from them. Simultaneously, let us gather information from others. The art of acquiring and disseminating knowledge is in our grasp – let us make full use of these facilities. Let us give Nature her due respect – let us begin in the back yard, take care of the trees and invite the birds back into our folds, entice the butterflies to return to our world and add color to our lives. Let us hope that zero six is the year that we had been waiting for eagerly to get all the breaks.
