Each year we start with the greetings "Wish You A Happy New Year".
We want to be the first one to greet our friends, neighbour or the boss as we want to show up ourselves to be very smart. We try to influence by doing so especially, if we are in need of favours.
The second thing is we try to celebrate our best by organising bash new year parties or by attending them. We do not care of spending lavishly on such parties by drinking and merrymaking whatever might be the financial condition throughout the year.
But, I do not understand the lavish spending of money on New Year parties or on Deepavali crackers or on marriage parties. Why all this extravaganza? Why so much is wasted to show up yourselves?
This lavishness of spending can be more usefully and generously spent for social causes and public welfare works. There is so much of poverty and so many people deprived of their bare necessities of food, clothing, shelter, education and health, etc. Why can't we spend this money for such purposes of giving them food, education and health?
I think that by generously contributing to such public welfare causes, we can get more satisfaction and a greater feeling of happiness than spending unnecessarily on bash parties and celebrations.
So, from this year on, let us try to save on parties and celebrations and spend a portion of the money thus saved for generous causes.
So let us wish for "A Happy New Year to the WHOLE HUMANITY".
