A toast to 2011

As 2011 draws to a close I feel the happiness and satisfaction that flows through the system after partaking a varied, unusual and delicious banquet which satisfies all the senses. I find myself more content and fulfilled than I have ever been. For this I must give thanks and I raise my gilaas of strong South Indian filter coffee to my many many friends. There are those who have always been my anchors since eternity, many new ones, the virtual friends who have transmogrified momentarily into reality, the real ones from my past who are now purely virtual and the wholly virtual ones - all of you who have changed my life so much for the better with your kindness, thoughtful actions, your thoroughly enjoyable company, help, laughter and love, I couldn’t have done it without you all.

To that person who once thumped the table and made that grease induced declaration over an empty plate of Gobi Manchurian saying, “You are responsible for who you attract into your life”, I take another slurp of super strong filter coffee, thump the table back and reply, “Yes, dahling, absolutely true!”

I wish each one of you reading this, an enjoyable new year ahead.
