It is that time of the year again: a year that was draws to an end, and a new one beckons. We take not more than a moment to think of what transpired in the year that was, as we look to the new year with much hope and optimism — wishing it to be the best yet.
The year 2011 held many promises too, fueled a lot many aspirations and dreams. Some were fulfilled, some not. There are those that found 2011 to be the year that held many special things, and there are those that feel it brought along much despair.
Clearly, like every year, this year too brought along a mixed bag of feelings: some will choose to remember it, some will not. We have our reasons — mostly grounded in our own realities and contexts.
As we look to the new year 2012 with new hopes and new aspirations, as we keenly look to new beginnings to realise our long cherished dreams — I ask you to look back at the year that was.
Look back at the year that was in all earnestness and identify that one moment that makes 2011 unforgettable for you. Tell me that one moment — happy, ecstatic, joyous, sad, beautiful, unfortunate, heartbreaking, amazing, magical — that etches 2011 permanently in your memories for a lifetime.
Just type in your answer as a comment in this post so that the judges will have a single point of reference and I can ensure a fair contest. May the best reasons win.
