2011: The Year That Was
Wow! What a year it has been! Times really fly don’t they?! I mean I still clearly remember what I did last new year’s eve and within a blink of an eye, a whole year has passed! I mean gimme a break, man! Are times really going so fast or am I the only one feeling this way?
As we’are just a day away from welcoming a new year, let’s just take a pause and rewind to the year that was. I mean it sure was eventful. I’m going to list down a few highlights of the year, which have affected the lives of millions across the globe.
First and foremost, is the death of Osama Bin Laden. The famed and much celebrated leader of the Al-Qaida was finally hunted down by American troops… His death restored peace and justice to people all over the world, yes it is cruel to celebrate someone’s death, but at the end of the day, What goes around, Comes back around, right!?
2011 was a special year for some of the African countries like Egypt, Libya, etc who saw the end of decades of dictatorship… It saw the fall of many powerful leaders and rise of the ‘Common Man’. This year has been a landmark year for, it saw the independence and evolution of people, from being ruled to become the rulers of democracy!
This year saw one of the biggest anti-corruption movements of the world, witnessed in India, led by a Gandhian called Anna Hazare… The world is left awestruck when the largest democracy in the world carries dour such a big movement against its politicians and it’s political system! It was indeed a year to be ear-marked as the year, when the first war against corruption was fought!
In the sporting world, one of the big things was Formula One racing making its pit stop in India… The innaugral Indian GP at the world class Buddha International Circuit, was a massive success and it showed the world, that India is ready for the big stage. Truly, it was an emotional or rather proud moment for all Indians around the world.
India was on the place to be this year, with international Music greats having gigs around the country. The Legendary rock band Metallica, paid a final frontier visit to India, and drove the country mad with their ever green hits. Apart from Metallica, Prodigy, Karnivool, Lady gaga, Pitbull and many other international stars made the country dance to their tunes in 2011.
An obvious highlight that most of us would have noticed is the death of many celebrated people around the world… 2011 claimed the lives of one too many.. I dont know, but it was something very mysterious, that legends were falling one after another… It was a year that saw immortals like Joe Frazier, Steve Jobs, Jaggit Singh, Amy Winehouse, Shammi Kapoor , Elizabeth Taylor, Dev Anand and many more, bound to the chains of mortality.
