Some believe life is a zero sum game, I do not know how true that is, but it seems plausible. As this year draws towards its end, I reminisce about the last 12 months. Writing from my desk at office on this last day, I am peaceful and calm, this is the best way the year could have ended.
A few posts ago I had mentioned that time is analogous, and we are just compartmentalizing it into units, New Year being one of them, giving us an opportunity to start afresh and face the world again.
2013 was a mixed year for us, lost a few cherished people in our family, welcomed a few new members (by birth or marriage), traveled a bit, struggled a lot with careers and cultures, and finally ending it peacefully. I also end it with new hopes for future, and hope to do a lot more next year starting tomorrow!
