I remember the time when I used to make purchase of Post Cards at Re 1, of Sunil Setthy carrying gun more than decade back at the time of New Year. I still remember writing ‘One glass of beer, Two glass of
beer, Oh My dear, Happy New Year’, and variety of such rhymes wishing friends Happy New Year. Time has changed. I don’t see children these days making purchases of Post Cards, and wishing New Year anyway. Nor do I see any shops displaying Post Cards. This is certainly not because Sunil Setthy is less popular, as they could come up with Di’ Caprico’s Post Card for sure. Post cards taught us to be social, as we used to hand it to our friends and relatives making personal visit those days.

Wishes are made through digital means today. SMS has gained huge popularity. I don’t know, and don’t want to know which one possesses high importance, SMS or Post Cards as well. As I am not that social
these days, I don’t send SMS’s wishing New Year anyway. All I can do is upload my Facebook Status wishing everyone Happy New Year. I don’t know, if it is the ease of technology that has been keeping me away from getting social and responsible, or it is me who has been away from my social life.

Final exams would be over, and exchanging cards was the only way I used to celebrate then. Today, how can we not make a party for the New Year? It would be total waste anyway, if we don’t make a party. Get yourself drunk, talk like drunkards, sleep late, and celebrate!

Celebration style has been changing. I seriously had no clue of such parties back during those childhood days. Maybe, I was immature! Maybe I was a child! Okay, that hardly makes huge concern. Peoples are satisfied with their way of living, and that is the significant thing which makes a mark. It is happiness that has to be counted. However, the social responsibility must be understood. Celebration style has been modified, and that must be accepted. However, the celebration must be social enough. Social, enough to let the upcoming generation follow it. What goes into the child of 8 years old mind when his dad and mom are drunk, in the name of celebration of New Year?

Celebrations are simply the reason to make an excuse. It is the day to make a remarkable memory, but let this celebration not change the lifestyle of the society. It is we, who are responsible for handing
our culture to the next generation. Let us not hand wrong system to upcoming generation. They should certainly not possess the image of ‘New Year’ as ‘Day of getting drunk!’. Happy New Year!
