Chp 331. Happy New Year!



Back in Mumbai, welcomed by the sweet smell of hectic urban life and Raj Thackeray

Saying I’m going to miss Mizoram is futile, as it’s not going to change anything. This is one of the hardest decisions I have ever made – continue working in Mumbai on a job I am good at and be overwhelmed with a sense of achievement, satisfaction and pride every night, or stay back in Mizoram looking after my folks while doing almost nothing else.

I guess this is one of the many crossroads many of you would have faced in your life too. And it gets harsher especially when there is guilt weighing you down as you journey across the road less taken.

But enough of this for now. Let’s look at the New Year ahead of us!


Unlike last year, this year sees a lot of National holidays that DO NOT fall on a freaking weekend! Wooohooo!!!!

And while I was at home, I realized one thing – 2011 is a carbon copy of 2005!



I bought this banner cum calendar right after the 2003-04 Invincibles era of the greatest football club on Earth – Arsenal. And now I can use this banner again for the year 2011. Sweet!

And hey, if you think using a recycled calendar is not awesome, then let me tell you that I have a 2011 Arsenal calendar too!

Yup, a surprise New Year gift – A calendar of the greatest team on earth, from the greatest person on this planet. Muaaah*



So here is to a great year ahead, and wishing you all the best in all your endeavours. Looking forward to another memorable and exciting journey of interesting blogs and comments. Cheers!
