Happy New Year. My best wishes.

2011 has just got over. 2012 is here.

2011 must have been good or bad for each one of us depending upon our Kundli.

For India, it was exceptionally a bad year. It was a year of scams, political instability, issues of governance, slide of Rs, crash of sensex, Chinese high handedness, Army Chief's age controversy, Ramdev episode, Anna agitation, Manipur blockade, and Shameful Lokpal debate in RS etc. None of this could make India proud.

2012 is going to be tough in every sense.

 UPA has to set its credibility which couldn't have been worse.

 BJP has to find its space of the main opposition party which usurped by Anna.

 Elections in five states could be real game changer, not so much for any party, but for this country where common man has been on receiving end, waiting for a change.

 Economist PM is at test before his name gets written in history books. (Hopefully)

 Inflation has to be contained.

 GDP is not making us proud.

 Industrial production is at its lowest.

 Forty plus Rajya Sabha seats will fall vacant.

 Vice President of India is due for retirement.

 President of India is due for retirement.

 Media might want to work on issues relating to its credibility.

 Media might want to relook at paid news issues.

 Media might, at least, may want to SEEM to be unbiased in its editorials. (Sic)

 Slow down in US and Euro zone crises old a cause of worry.

 India Rs to US $ parity may touch Rs 70.

 Fuel prices may touch Rs 100 / lt.

The list is just too long. One hopes India will stand strong and determined.

We might see more billionaires in India.

We might see more MPs becoming Crorepatis (Means aren't important).

2012 may just be the year of and for change, hopefully for the better.

PAPPU is still waiting for Roti-Kapada-Makaan.

Though I expect to be called a pessimist and a cynic, I cannot help saying that this Anarchist land has been getting more anarchist. Will it change? If only wishes were horses and horses could fly!!!

will the generation that comes out of our academic institutions thriving on mediocrity, outdated quotas, and the generation that see nothing wrong in greasing hands, be instruments that would want to change India?

Elections in 5 states too...but who cares about the issues u have raised? They are busy discussing whether Salman Rushdie should be allowed in India?
