Of the New Year and the New Year resolutions...

Here comes yet another New Year eve and you just get a feeling that there is nothing new about it. You have lived this day every year for decades now. The janta around you keeps bugging “31st ka kya plan hai? Party sharty kaha hai?” You see hoardings of “New Year bash, unlimited food and drinks” everywhere. But those don’t excite you anymore. You wonder and worry if the alcohol consumption on this day is more than the water consumption. You are probably searching for a less noisy, less crowded place where you can celebrate the evening with your dear ones, spending quality time with them.

Well, if this is happening to you, it’s a sure sign that you are growing Old!! 

You always decide upon a few New Year resolutions every year. And you do stick to them wholeheartedly on the 1st Jan... Sometimes, you hold on to them for more than few days, may be even a week. Then you give up and wait for the year to end. On 31st Dec, you make a new New Year resolution. Once again. This time, with a stronger will and a fresh vigour. And the cycle continues. Year after year…

Well, if this is your story, you have what they call “A never say die” attitude. Keep it up!!

I was browsing a typical Job Description on a job portal. It had several points listed down. 3-5 years of experience with exposure to blah blah blah. Knowledge of blah blah would be an added advantage and so on. The last point read “Should have a lot of FIB”. I wondered what FIB meant and there it was - explained in the line below in brackets “(Fire in the Belly)”. I had a good laugh.

Today when I think of it, I feel FIB is missing in our lives. FIB is missing if you do not feel excited about anything in life or if you feel you are growing old. FIB is missing if you are unable to keep up your New Year resolution or any resolution for that matter. FIB is certainly missing if you feel there is no purpose in life.

So this new year, I wish everyone gets more of FIB to set their lives right. To fulfil their dreams and do what they always wanted to. People who love me keep asking me to reduce my Belly (The B in the FIB). But to do that also I need more FIB!!
P. S. – I am writing after a long long time. I want to keep writing more of such crap regularly in this coming New Year. Hope I get enough FIB to do that! J Wish you all a very happy new year!
