HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE GOLF COURSE

Copyright@shravancharitymission

     I thought of locking the year with a few rounds of golf. So I played nine holes today. Shall continue with it, even tomorrow, and even day after, and positively on the 1st day of, 2018. They say what you do on the last day of the year, continues with you in the ensuing year. And what you do on the first day of the New Year remains with you throughout the year. Golf certainly is my vaunted lifeline.

     It was a wonderful experience in some months. When, you happened to be in the golf course, on a cold winter morning. That too, when, the visibility was poor. And where, the morning sun was as if, heckled by those seasonal miscreants, while it was is on its way up. To, greet the golfers.

    Of course it was a dare to reach the club early in the morning. As you don’t feel like leaving the warm bed in the accompaniment of the soft quilt. It was a frigid and shivering start, at hole number one. Climaxing, to a warm and cozy end, at hole number nine. The entire flora including the carpet of grass was covered with dew. On which the foot marks of the golfers were clearly visible. Perhaps, if you had seen their soles, you would have known who all were ahead of you. Even the bounce of the golf ball had left an impression on the gleaming blade of the grass, followed by its long roll all along the carpet that was noticeable to the eyes even from a distance. In all of this one could but feel the change setting in. That is the advent of the New Year.

    As we go from 17 to 18 one wonders how the year was spent. So it is time to introspect, over the year. What satisfied you …. What demeaned you? And what remained as a routine. Turn of the year is a big leveler. Where, one can start afresh, with hitherto, unaccomplished missions. I’m sure you’ve thought enough about it. So act now. For life is short. So do what you wish to do and do it now. Says the famous proverb—‘time and tide wait for none.’ 

………………………… have a great 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Good bye 2016,

Welcome 2017,

And the turn of teens,

Only makes me feel umpteen.

*

For 16 was good, and well understood,

Tough, but still withstood,

And straight forward too, so never misunderstood,

And with the help of all that,

17 is now a likelihood.

*

With the thick of life, thin comes along,

And with sweet 16, 17 comes along,

Just as, with the past, the future comes along,

And with the sorrows, the joys come along.

*

Each new year springs up new hopes,

Each coming year throws up new goals,

Where you roll back old scrolls,

To live in with your new roles.

*

For I have new resolutions to make,

Old resolutions to break,

For old time is ticking,

New time is revving.

*

For remember triumphantly,

Life holds no sway, without the bygone days,

But will stop to breathe, without the flowering days,

So 17 on 16 is the order of the day.

*

Life churns, only with the churn of years,

And there is no life, without the change of years,

So welcome 17 and say goodbye to 16

For that is the real trending.

ARTICLE – 2014-15, THE CELEBRATORY POWER OF NUMBER ONE- HAPPY NEW YEAR

KAMLESH TRIPATHI

 

Just an addition of a number makes it ‘2015’ and the world goes into a tizzy; that explains the mystical streak and splendorous grandeur of the lowest cardinal number 1, as we get into making tall announcements about our New Year’s resolve.

I’ll give up smoking, I’ll give up drinking, I’ll go vegetarian, I’ll go jogging for fitness, I’ll be on a diet for weight loss, I’ll get married, I’ll change my job, I’ll go abroad, so on and so forth. And, so the power of ‘one’ wriggles you into doing things hitherto you have been appropriately postponing.

I often wonder as to how and why 1st of January from the Gregorian calendar has become an international day for celebrations across the world, even when many sects and religions don’t follow this calendar in the very spiritualistic of spirits and have their own calendar to live by. Reason is simple because it is now housed in the most powerful calendars of the world, now followed by the most rich and influential, including many Governments and Corporations.

In England, January 1 was celebrated as the New Year day and most western European countries changed the start of the year to January 1 even before they adopted the Gregorian calendar.

But to me 1st January is 1st January; as I’ve been doing 1st January for the last 50 odd years, because, it hell cheers me. And, because of our pursuant persuasion to celebrate this short, dark, ugly and one of the coldest days of the year as a new year’s day, we now also declare it as a public holiday. In fact, one of the reasons why 1st January has become so acceptable and popular across the world is because it has no religious connotation and gives you a break from the monotonic cocktail of life; and not forgetting some of your daily achievements and travails are also counted onwards of 1st January.

Also, it might not be a holy day, yet a day of commonality, mounting on celebrations that brings you hope and drops those idiotic wherefores that you have been dragging all along the year. But, why resolves each year on the 1st? Let the day and year stream out with no resolves and just decide to do what comes our way in the best manner possible.

And so I have decided my new year’s day is not going to have any resolves for self aggrandizement, rather will have some noble intentions to help others. Because, 1st of January like any other 1st ,only preaches you to be first; and that you need to decide from where you want to be 1st.
