How was 2013 for you?
For me the year 2013 was one of the best year. Cleared CA, doing what i love to do.
And amazing thing is didnot accept some 5 high paying careers (not printed in news papers ;)
On overall the year was personally and professionaly really good.
As far as India is concerned the year 2013 seems to be better than 2012. Achievement of India in 2013 are:
- Launch of Mangalyaan
- AAP winning good number of seats in Delhi
- Narendra Modi succesfully shadowed Congress
- No nonsense movie by Salaman Khan this year
- People voted for development and not disaster schemes launched by Congress government in Rajasthan.
Bad things that happened in 2013 in India are:
- Chennai Express earning more than 300 crore again damaged the hope that Indian will not watch masala scriptless stories.
- Indian Economy under pressure. Development paused, Rupee depreciating everyday.
- Policy paralysis, no major decisions by government.
The Year 2013 was mixed with lot of ups and downs for me.
First of all , i had achieved the biggest of all all my dreams of passsing the herculean Chartered accountancy course.
It was a great year where i explored my trueself. Met some great unforgettable people in life, brief yet sweet memories at workplace, bought new handset, a new tablet phone , was now looking as though as i am a damn serious person ( four -eyed :P) when i started wearing specs for small correction because of my long eye-sightedness :P, got bored of all Mcds KFCs, CCDs, nandhinis, subways pizzahut and all that nonsense and started enjoying the simple dosas , idlis, filtred coffee, panipuri on roadsides, became a ardent fan of Ruskin bond's stories, writings, quit two jobs for want of JOB SATISFACTION :P ( though i am a typical middle class guy who cant afford to quit :D), gained some more weight, travelled nooks and corners of bangalore, lost my loving grandpa :( , became more silent deep within myself, had tough times working with stupid bosses, yup...
And i learnt
" Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards" (~Seren Kierkegoard)
Life goes on an on and on.. No regrets... No expectations.. No disappointments
Cant beleive 2013 passed by as if it was a train-passing by a station. Waiting for 2014 to see the what are the thrills and chills that life has to give me ..
and i Wish you all a happy new year 2014 in advance
