Billions around the globe celebrate the new year on different dates and times with Jan 1 as a major symbol of this ‘ritual’. More than celebrations it is the hopes for the coming days that people count on. Every year the world hopes that there will be humanity on earth but many times people are disappointed that some of the fellow humans are still light years away from humanity.
With majority of world population on one side events have happened despite wishes of ‘ happy new year’
Genocide of Palestinians conitnues, yesterday it was Sabra Shateela, today it is Gaza.
Atrocities in Kashmir see no end.
Darfur still seems to need innocent blood.
Occupation of land and properties of people of Iraq and Afghanistan continues .
People kill in the name of religion : Christians burnt alive in India, Muslims tortured and killed by Israel,Muslims killed in Indian Gujrat, Muslims killed in Bosnia, Jews Segregated and killed in Europe, Muslims killed by so called Muslims in areas of Pakistan-Afghanistan. No matter who is killed, humanity loses its spirit, its innocence.

January , Muharram , Pin Yin, Diwali, Nawruz, Rosh Hashanah or any other year start marks the new hopes of mankind for its future.

Lets pray

May we have few months,
if not few months, few weeks
if not few weeks, few days
if not few days, even a single day
when not a single human is killed by another human atleast on this planet

Ovidius once said ” My hopes are not always realized , but I always hope”.

Allah bless us all in the year 2009 and beyond ( Ameen )!
