Umeed Vali Dhoop: Happy New Year

Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems going haywire and the only thing on your mind is to just go to your place and sleep because you cant stand another human contact? More so when it’s the end of a year and everyone around you has plans for the New Years Eve and all you can come up with is ‘may be I have office, not sure’. You are clueless how and when did you sign up for this? And then suddenly you embark upon something that brings back memories. Ok guessing game over, I am frustrated with all the ‘brilliant’ challenges thrown my way these days, Which confirmed the theory which I populated a while ago that ‘if Indian IT companies make IQ test as their entry criteria, they will NEVER require cost cutting’, I am proved right again and again. Coming back to the current scenario I embarked onto the new cola ad, which has been around for years but Prasoon Joshi gave the local touch. And if you are not moved with the ad, YOU NEED HELP (it is almost like saying you didn't cry in the last scene of toy story 3)

Umeed wali dhoop, Sunshine wali aasha

Rone ki wajah kamm hai, Hasne ke bahane jyada

Zidd hai muskurayenge, Khush rehne ka hai waada

Umeed wali dhoop, Sunshine wali aasha

Tum dil se agar poochoge, Woh Khush rehna hi chahe

Jab sachhe mann se maango, Toh khul jaati hai rahein

To khul ke khushi lutao, Ye kya hai aadha aadha

Umeed wali dhoop, Sunshine wali aasha

Also, if you haven’t, do check out the English version of the video which has been around for years

Whatever I choose And I'll sing the blues if I want
I'm free to say whatever I Whatever I like
If it's wrong or right it's alright Always Seems to me
You only see what people want you to see How long's it gonna be
Before we get on the bus And cause no fuss
Get a grip on yourself It do not cost much
Free to be whatever you Whatever you say
If it comes my way it's alright You're free to be wherever you Wherever you please You Can shoot the breeze if you want

If you overlook the stupid commercialization of the cola involved, the facts are truly amazing. Things actually aren’t that bad after all. One of those times when after the end of something you realize all is not wrong, and things will get better. And considering the change in the last digit of calendar is just hours away, I am again hopeful that things will change for good.

Here’s wishing lot of successful dreams, hopes and happiness to all of you in the new years. Keep humming \m/oO\m/

also, What are your new year plans?
