The last of the teens

Finally, it’s here – the last of the teens. Last year, the year 2000’s turned 18 and now we are looking it to turn a new chapter. Oddly enough, it’ll be the last year we can call 2000’s teenager. May be enough of pranks and turn things serious.

Delhi, as always breached all pollution levels and continue to threaten the life while our Governments both centre and state continue to ignore and play dirty politics. We’ve celebrities endorsing a no-cracker Diwali but then compensate on their weddings. Companies promoting products for sale to build a healthy lifestyle by chopping off the life giving trees (without new plantation).

People are becoming smarter and need better governance, while there are few who love to go to ballot paper and reverse the digital era. We’ve Supreme Court whose judges enjoy a healthy amount of vacation can open doors for terrorists at midnight, pass judgement on religion but no time to expedite the pending cases which span years.

Aadhaar, probably a scheme no one liked initially to a something everyone wanted (I liked it for I’d have one ID proof which is online) to basic tatters. Instead of separating the monetary angle, the ease of use was scrapped. In my honest opinion, both Government and Activists have been high headed and no one tried to solve a problem but just highlight.

A lot of people have sacrificed their life for India’s independence. Many want separate state, some a separate country. A lot of people have tried keeping it together. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel happened to be the first and the most known. We got the tallest statue in the world but I still feel if it was needed. This has indirectly started a war of claims to build more statues. Build a park with statues of all great leaders or may be make our own wax museum like Madame Tussauds.

Some great movies this year. Big names failed, new names ruling the charts & hearts. Intelligent movies are being appreciated. Character actors are gaining the limelight more than the main lead. An indication that even though it is the last teenage years of year 2000s, they don’t need to act like one. Someone said, movies are an indication of the society.

The millennials will now be part of building the nation in next year General Elections 2019. I hope we all will learn from past and build the nation instead of acting like teenagers or playing dirty politics. On this note, I wish everyone a very Happy New Year – 2019.

American Express saves the day

Last 24 hours have been harrowing for me due to the unauthorised transactions that have taken place on my account. Being hit by credit card fraud does take away more than half of your share of your mind simply because credit card are basically loan accounts. If you don’t pay, the default will impact your CIBIL score and if you do – you already know. It is then up to your bank on how they support you in this regard.

Year 2000s turn 18 – New Year 2018

Lots of ups and downs happened this year as well. Unlike other times, this time, I lazed at home and waiting for Monday office tomorrow, 01st January, 2018.

As clock ticks 12:00 tonight, the year 2000s turn adult. Z(er(o)ne)A has upgraded itself to avxio. Watching movie on TV and no special shows. Let’s put all laziness behind in 2017 and be active, fit and healthy in 2018.

Wishing you all a prosperous Happy New Year – 2018.

Ok! One more time

I’ve been missing again, mostly from here. This post coming after over 4 months since Happy New Year 2017.

Where I’ve been? Mostly sleeping, little to none activity.

Why? There’s no particular reason and best I can come up with is was busy with office work. When had free time, played some mobile games (“Clash Royale”). Almost killed this blog due to a stupid mistake. Rebuilt it from scratch and it still looks like $#*+

Now what? I don’t know. Maybe that age old line from me, I’ll try to be regular.
I’ll be back.

Happy New Year 2017

Another year passed with several ups and downs. 2016 has come to a passe now but it has touched everyone be it in or out of India.

Demonetization had been the talk of the nation at its fag end, many supported and some did not stop at politicizing it and there were some trying to take advantage. As we enter 2017, hope to have one less thing to worry (carrying currency notes) and make transactions via plastic money or online. Lets enter new year with more point of sale machine & people, banks and shopkeepers keep aside their tax saving ideas aside and adopt this change to make India great again.

Wish you all of you and your near and dear ones a very Happy New Year 2017 and no one to struggle for cash.
