Happy New Year to all of you 🙂 Like any other year, this year too on the 1st of Jan, I did spend some time to think about the past year and my plans for this new year. I know that everything in life does not go as per our plans, however I believe that a plan in hand always helps to deal the situations in better manner…May be I am a shameless optimist 😉

I want to learn so many  things this year. I want to learn carnatic instrumental music particularly Veena; I want to learn oil painting; I want to study books of Shri Viswanatha Satyanarayana garu with a proper understanding on the subject; I want to learn Statistics in a proper manner so that I can implement that learning in my day-to-day projects at work. I want to study books on History.

I want to be a better person. I want to understand my near and dear ones more,,, to deal with them in a better manner 🙂 , Last but not least, I want to talk less, write less this year 😉

If the world does not end  in December 2012 and if I am still alive on Jan 1st 2013 then I will definitely revisit this blog post of mine and check how many resolutions of mine did I really achieve. Wish me good luck 🙂

Got some time to read some good old Hindi poems and thought of sharing the below poem of Shri Harivansh Rai Bachchan with all of you on new year day. Do check this inspirational poem. Wishing all of you good luck in this new year 🙂

कोशिश करने वालों की –  हरिवंशराय बच्चन

लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती,

कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है,

चढ़ती दीवारों पर, सौ बार फिसलती है।

मन का विश्वास रगों में साहस भरता है,

चढ़कर गिरना, गिरकर चढ़ना न अखरता है।

आख़िर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती,

कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

डुबकियां सिंधु में गोताखोर लगाता है,

जा जा कर खाली हाथ लौटकर आता है।

मिलते नहीं सहज ही मोती गहरे पानी में,

बढ़ता दुगना उत्साह इसी हैरानी में।

मुट्ठी उसकी खाली हर बार नहीं होती,

कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

असफलता एक चुनौती है, इसे स्वीकार करो,

क्या कमी रह गई, देखो और सुधार करो।

जब तक न सफल हो, नींद चैन को त्यागो तुम,

संघर्ष का मैदान छोड़ कर मत भागो तुम।

कुछ किये बिना ही जय जय कार नहीं होती,

कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

Translation to above poem : You cannot take your boat across the sea If you are afraid of the waves, The one who tries Never fails. The tiny ant carries a small grain in its mouth, Climbs up on the wall, slips and falls a hundred times, The determination in the mind fills your body with courage, Then climbing up and falling down does not hurt, Ultimately, its (the ant’s) efforts do not go waste, The one who tries Never fails. The diver dives into the water of the sea, He returns empty handed a number of times, Not easy it is to find a pearl in the deep waters, But this in turn doubles his enthusiasm, His hands are not empty every time, The one who tries Never fails. Failure is a challenge, accept it, Recognise your shortcomings, rectify them. Till you are successful, shun rest and sleep, Never run away from the battlefield of hard work, You cannot get praise without working for it, The one who tries Never fails(Courtesy:http://forums.sulekha.com/forums/coffeehouse/lehron-se-darkar-nauka-par-nahin-hoti-w-translation-799525.htm)
