Wouldn’t it just be perfect if the New Year were to multiply this year’s success and joy, and entirely eliminate the heartache and obstacles? Writes Biswadip Das, Editor, News and Special Affairs
Here we are again. Another year of our lives is coming to a close, a new list of resolutions has been drawn up and we are adamant to see them through. Wouldn’t it just be perfect if the New Year were to multiply this year’s success and joy, and entirely eliminate the heartache and obstacles?
Surely we all have been through our share of hardship this year. Some of you may have lost your job, a house, or even watched your relationship crumble to nothing. Luckily, time heals all wounds and the symbolic closing of one year to make way for the new can be just what we need to gather up strength for a fresh start.
If 2009 was a dark hole, 2010 is the light at the end of the tunnel. For those of you who had the most prosperous and blissful year, consider the gift of another year your bonus.
A wild night out isn’t for everybody.
For those of you who do not enjoy crowds, and find being part of the excited masses rather impersonal a night out in Dhaka on New Year’s Eve may not be an ideal choice. Partygoers tend to get incredibly drunk in the mood of the night and become excessively noisy and disruptive.
Fireworks are set off across Dhaka and you may feel uncomfortable picking your way home through the crackles and pops as enthusiasts continue their celebrations way after the witching hour. In the morning the city is strewn with the pink remnants of blasted bangers.
If you are seeking a quiet night and would rather spend quality time with their family or partner, perhaps a night out for dinner followed private party at home is the way to go–light the candles, bring out your best dishes, watch a good movie…
For those on a tight budget, you’ll certainly keep the costs down through celebrating at home or at a friend’s house.
