Celebrating New Year
Much has been written in the media about the terrorist attacks in Mumbai. People from all over the world and from all sections has shown a lot of criticism to the terrorism. But only criticism, no action, atleast there has not been any remarkable action from Inda. In our colony, where I have the opportunity of serving as a president, residents welfare association, there was a divided openion about celebrating the arrival of the new . Some comrades wanted to avoid celebration and mourn the terrorist attacks, their affection was geniune, but lacked action. An action which is required to put a full stop to the terrorism. After much of disscution we decided to celebrate the new year arrival, but with a difference. The difference was to educate the next generation. To create greater awareness about the danger of terrorism which is staring them streight in the eyes. Probably the biggest threat to the next generation. The programme started with a prize distribution funcution of the annual sports mela we had, and then a few patriotic songs. My friend Mr. Bishwjeet and Mr. Pathak who are excellant oraters started the funcution by paying two minutes silence to the martyers of the 26/11. Most the ancoring was handled by the kids of the colony and the programme ended with a celebration and welcome to the new year. I personally believe that we were able to achieve the aim of celebration to a large extent. At least some action at our level.
