2011 will go down as momentous. Economies tumbled, dictators fell and Kim Jong Il died.
2012 will be will be eventful. We will have consequential elections in China, Russia and the United States of America.
As always we will have to deal with range of disasters, both natural like earthquakes and man made like famine. More dictators will fall and more economies will spin into turmoil.
At a personal level we all will have our moments of triumph, deep hurt and grief. And for some of us we will come close or encounter our own mortality.
And to you all, here is 2012 with some tears and lots of laughter.
But it is a wonderful world, and its all we have.
