2001: A WORLD AT WAR WITH ITSELF
violence whiplashed the world in 2001, startling it out of its smugness.
There were several wars in the last century, including two World Wars,
but the first year of this century saw a radically different scenario
— highly motivated groups of people launching attacks on
nation-states. Whether it was an attack on the WTC, New York, or on the
Indian Parliament, the shadowy figure of the terrorist loomed large in
homes and outside, menacingly. The subcontinent specially was in turmoil
with conflicts emerging sharply in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan,
Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal. As the year draws to a close, many hold
their breath anxiously and wonder— what next?
MOMENTS OF JOY & GLORY
WAS A TURBULENT YEAR
ways to usher in the New Year
last Sunday of the year. It’s the time to look back at the weeks and
months gone by, to remember happenings happy and sad. To relive events
interesting and absurd. And what better way to do that than to plan a
bash at your home where you can recapture vignettes of the outgoing
year. The fun of it actually lies in doing it at short notice!
