The "year end" syndrome

Its that time of the year again....Christmas is around the corner....there is the spirit of Christmas in the it the RJ on Radio City who keeps reminding you at least once every half an hour...or the boys selling red Santa caps at each trafiic signal....the year's crescendo is builing up, it will peak up at New Year's and then fall flat with the start of 2006.

This is the time when all of us get a bit philosophical, as we look back on the year which just sped by. We analyse the highs and lows of the year, realising in the process how much we have matured in the last 365 days. Things which were terribly important to us one year back now seem meaningless, while some matters to which we never gave a second thought have taken new dimensions in our lives.

At this time of the year, all of us, even the most incurable pessimist, looks forward to the coming year and hopes for good things to happen. We somehow beleive that our unfulfilled wishes will become true in the new year. We might not be able to figure out at this point how or why it will happen....its just the magical and unknown quality of the new year ahead which makes us beleive and hope for whatever we want in life.

These last few days of the year carry with them a sense of restlessness and urgency......there is this last minute rush to get things it at office or that we enter the year with a sense of mental peace and acheivement. The feeling of entering the new year without any baggage from the past year prevails in everybody's mind. Life takes on a new meaning with each new year, there is happiness, and above all hope in everybody's mind.

Someone has truly said...."Life is Hope, Hope is Life".....

Here's wishing and hoping for everybody...all things bright and beautiful in the coming year...

Happy New Year !!!!

My dream car

No better way to start my blog than to talk about my latest passion....Honda City !!! I am totally flipped over by the new Honda City model, and sigh everytime I see one on the road. Unfortunately that ends up in me sighing a bit too much since lots of people seem to share my passion !!!

I never knew before this that I could be so fascinated by a car...I think its the looks...the devilish look...which appeals to me....I know there are lots of people out there who do not like how the new Honda City looks....but for me, the looks holds the main attraction. I think its drop dead gorgeous. There are bigger and better cars in the market, but none has caught my fancy like this one has. Added to this, I have also got very good first hand reviews from a colleague who owns it, which justifies my choice. has all what you want to know about the car. It also has the price list and EMI calculator, the different colors in which the car is available (you can actually see all the shades) and the dealer locations.

The EMI of course made me realise again how very unaffordable it is for me...:((...Maybe that is what it will always dream car.....
