2012 and New Years January 2, 2012

The thing with a New Year is that it happens all the year round. Just two months back, in November, we had a New Year after Deewali. Another fortnight and we have Makar Sankranti. And then we have Basant Panchmi and then something! All harbingers of new things and starting things afresh.

But 2012 brings special emotions, right! We all look forward to the “predicted” end of an era. It also means that we might witness a dawn of a new era.

But as you note, that new things happen all the time. Here’s an interesting story about the continuous change that we need to be aware of!

A man was taking a dip in the Ganga river. He took 3 dips.

On returning back to his hometown, he was describing his 3 dips in the river when he was confronted by a local fakeer. The fakeer said, “How can you say you took 3 dips in the same river? When you first took the dip, the river flowed away and the second dip you took was in another stream of that river!”

In fact, if you observe carefully, the 3 dips happened in three different streams of the same river.

And if you go deeper, and believe that millions of your body cells die and regenerate every second, you would realize that the same man did not take the 3 dips.

But 3 different men (in terms of cells dying and regenerating) took the 3 dips in 3 different Ganga river!!

Change is the only constant.

Good wishes for a Happy You. Make any moment your new year. (I need this specially because when 2011 turned into 2012, I was sleeping)
