Last day of 2011 & Last post of 2011 –
There have been so many ups and downs, happy & sad moments this year…
An attempt to summarize 2011 –
We have lost many great personalities this year. The great personalities include Bharatratna Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Satya Saibaba, M.F.Hussain, Shammi Kapoor, Nawab Mansoor Ali Pataudi, Co- founder of Apple Inc. Steve Jobs, photographer Gautam Rajadhyaksha, Gazal maestro Jagjit Singh and the evergreen star of bollywood Dev Anand. These personalities will be missed by millions of people. And there were a few deaths which were awaited (or even celebrated) by the people. These included most wanted Osama Bin Laden & Colonel Gaddafi.
And Now some other events.
For politicians this year has not been a great year. Some big names have settled in Tihar Jail.
All of them are ‘in’ under one label i.e. corruption. Definitely the common man feels a bit satisfied because of this. In fact 2011 should be declared as the year against corruption. Even Ramdeo Baba jumped into this movement. How can we forget the 3 fights (April, August & December) against corruption? Members from Team Anna must be the most talked about people this year. Hope so their issue is solved this coming year and they come up with some new issue in 2012.
For gadget lovers this year has been all about tablets. It seems every other company wants to jump into the tablet market. The cheapest tablet named ‘Aakash’ with a price tag of RS. 2500 was launched this year. I wonder will it ever be made available to all the students who desire it even at a cheaper price. In mobile phones I Phone 4 S rocked the markets all over.
In the sports world, no one can forget 2nd April 2011. It was the day when Team India won the CWC after 28 years. I think this must be the highlightd moment of success & happiness for majority of Indian population this year. The IPL4 was won Chennai super kings & the Champions League T20 by Mumbai Indians. Viru scored a massive double ton Vs WI. India also won the Asian Championship (Hockey) & Kabbadi World Cup. The much awaited Formula one Grand Pri was held at Buddh International Circuit in Noida. In 2012 India awaits Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th ton. Hope 2011 brings such good memories also.
And now to wrap up, some remarkable incidents this year -
- Royal wedding of Kate Middleton & Prince Williams.
- Mumbai was again attacked by 3 bomb blasts and people are still waiting when that guy Kasab will be hanged.
- The Japan earthquake.
- The treasure found at Padmanabh Swami temple in Kerala.
- Sushil Kumar winning 5 crore in KBC.
As this year comes to an end, I thank 2011 for bringing so many memories & WELCOME 2012 with a great pomp and joy. To All my readers I wish a Very Happy NEW YEAR!!! May 2012 be a prosperous, Successful & Healthy year for you. Enjoy this year as much as possible. Who knows the world might end in 2012.
