Looking forward with hope - 2021 New Year GreetingsIt's been a ruthless year, with the pandemic causing havoc around the globe. It has not only snatched away many a loved one but also shattered the lives of so many due to loss of jobs and difficulties in just surviving. Both physical and mental health has been affected, no doubt. Some of us have had the privilege to be able to earn while working from home, unaffected by all the happenings, but nevertheless fearful.
No, it is not a year one would forget. But it is equally necessary to move on, to be resilient, to look forward with hope. And not just for an effective vaccine that would create a long-term barrier to the dreaded Covid virus and its mutations, but also for a year that would help the world to get back on its struggling feet to recover from the economical imbalance.
Yes, let us look forward with hope - with the masks on, don't forget! We need to look back, though, on the humane and selfless support given by known and unknown people individually and collectively. Let us not forget to reach out to the less privileged, continue to pay the maids who have not resumed work in your home, spend time conversing with elderly people you know who are staying alone and ask them if you can do anything for them and similarly other such little things that can bring some happiness into a life.
Wishing everyone a better, happier year ahead than the one gone by. Happy 2021!
