Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Happy Happy New Year :)


Hurray it’s a brand new year here! Happy Happy New year to all of you, May this year be filled with loads of success, love, good health and happiness to all of you….

Oh my god! I just love January for all the wonderful amazing magic it has. Being the first month of the year, it has this complete fresh feeling in it. All thanks to the weather of this month, its bright sunny winter down south here and warm sun is caressing all of us with a dash of chillness in the air. And so for me it’s a perfect start for a happy, energetic, fun filled year ahead. Most funny thing is, it is the month of retrospection for the year that has gone by. Almost all of us start scratching our head thinking about the bad things of the year that passed and reassure ourselves to not make the same mistakes again (cause we have so many different variety of mistakes left to do, its boring to repeat the same thing ;) ). Also we find it so difficult to let go the previous year for the best things it offered us. Try doing the exact same things in February its seems too funny and ridiculous :P. The best of all is making resolutions, struggling very hard for first 2 weeks to meet it and of course finally forget them with umpteen reasons to justify the failure.

All in all this one month is Potpourri of excitement, retrospection, hopes, dreams, financial planning, partying and getting emotional. And I am getting drenched in the shower of all this and especially last 4 days was too much of a hurricane not just shower and so the reasons for the delay to wish you all.

Oh I actually am telling everything else than what I actually started the post for… Typical me!
Not delaying further…I started this post to specially thank you all because you were my 2012 … yes trust me friends, I really don’t know much about you all apart from the very beautiful post you put on your blog, I don’t know where you are from, I don’t know what your liking are, we don’t connect regularly but nothing of this really mattered! You made me smile, you encouraged me all throughout no matter what I write I had at least 1 of you patting my back and encouraging me.

I don’t know what to call you as should I brand you all as my blog friends, my guides; my partners in crime, no nothing can actually brand the bond we share. I am here today in some corner of the world, typing some random things which is gushing out of my confused mind but with every word I have lots of hopes to see you all come here, shower me with all your love and best thing is, you have never disappointed me.
You feel free to laugh it over, or call me sentimental, or call me emotional being I still love and value this strange bond I have with you all…
Buddies thanks a lot…. You have made me smile all throughout this year… and again in this coming year I strongly hope my every morning will again start with smile for which you have been the reason all throughout …And touch wood! if you ever feel let down please remember there is one soul in some corner of the world waiting  for your smile…
Keep smiling ….Happy Happy New Year ....

Good one.. I double agree with you on these things
- this is the month for retrospection, hopes, dreams, financial planning, partying and getting emotional
- Trying or just thinking about the same in February seems funny / ridiculous
(guess it's again down to that emotional thinking we have with new year ..new hope.. new beginning funda.. but it's good to be emotional .. at-least it motivates us and gives us some josh!!)
-Finally the fact that we reassure
ourselves to not make the same mistakes again (cause we have so many different variety of mistakes left to do, its boring to repeat the same thing ;) )

Thanks to you too for writing energetic posts that makes us smile. Good to know your blog and know you through your blog. : )

And btw.. good smile, looks like you brush your teeth daily, good girl ; )

Dear Madam

Wish you A Happy New Year 2013.

Madam we all have great hope that in this 2013 we are moving in to more advance in our fields.

Madam in the year 2012 there were many sad things happened particularly to the woman. It is a very sad situation that in the year ending of 2012 one young indian 23 year old braveheart sister united all of us with her death. It is a great thing that entire youth of india united for her and pay homage to her and want justice to her.

Madam like many of our youth from my side i am also trying to attempt to convey some message about this incident in my Heritage of India blog.

Madam recently i am posting one message in my Heritage of India blog under title "Indian Woman in 19th Century vintage post cards". Madam in this message i am trying to compare with the situations as how woman got respect in those golden days with present day dangerous situations by mentioning the example of this 23 year old young indian braveheart sister.

Madam this is the link for this message.

http://indian-heritage-and-culture.blogspot.in/2012/12/indian-woman-in-19th-century-vintage.html

Madam i request you please read this message and share your comments about this post. Madam if you like this message please share this with your friends also.

I so loved this pic. Looking Gorgeous, as always ;-). And yes January is all about new beginnings and hopes and a fresh start. Have a nice year, nice to have met you thru blogging :-)

Raj said...

Ramya… that is such a sweet (read “typical” Ramya) post. ;) Blog friends are indeed so unique and so special. We feel we don’t know much about them and then the next moment we are reading an excerpt from their day and we share a bit of our life with them and suddenly we feel they are an inherent part of our lives. I am so glad that the month of January is a very exciting one full of happiness, introspection, retrospection, planning and what not. Enjoy it to the fullest. Unfortunately for me, I don’t get to do much of those as I will be swamped with hell lot of work (not that I would do all those things if I am free :P) Anyways…wish u a wonderful wonderful new year with lots and lots of happiness.

Binu Thomas said...

Hey Ramya, the pleasure is always ours! To read and enjoy blogs from our blogger friends is always special.. Whenever people ask me whats so special about blogging, I always mention its the new friends you make, whom you don't even know, but you make an impression based on the posts published by them.. And it's even more addictive than FB, twitter etc.. :)

Here's wishing you a wonderful and fun filled 2013.. and many many more blogs from your end for us to read and enjoy.. God Bless :)

Prashanth said...

Wishing you and your family a very happy New Year. May god bless you & your family with all the happiness and good health...:)

This line was the best, "cause we have so many different variety of mistakes left to do, its boring to repeat the same thing ;) )"

Keep Smiling, Keep Blogging..Cheers...:)
