Every year we all proclaim our New Year resolutions only to break them after a couple of days or weeks. But as the new decade begins, can we hope for the world to be a better place than before?
Could this be the decade of peaceful coexistence?
Could this be the decade when we start reversing the effects of global warming?
Could this be the decade when we forget our differences and work together for the greater good of humanity?
This tree in Glastonbury, Connecticut is in full bloom during the fall season.
But the other tree behind it is a pale shadow of itself with its empty branches rising towards the sky. It is preparing for the winter as the leaves have all fallen by the wayside.
Until recently, I had only seen the fall colours in pictures and movies. But seeing the real thing in New Hampshire and New England in the US was a completely different experience altogether.
There are some trees which are green throughout the year. While leaves on others turn yellow, red or even pink during the fall season. This combined with the blue colour of the sky or the grey clouds give such a lovely colourful contrast to the surroundings.
This pic is from the unprecedented rainy months last winter in Kuwait. It rained like there was no tomorrow.
While many rain records were broken, a lot of us who are used to 50 degree summers surely weren’t complaining as cool and cloudy days greeted us day in and day out. These were moments to cherish.

Despite having a caring family and achieving a lot in her career, Sarah seemed perennially unhappy. Her eye condition had deteriorated so much so that it had started affecting her daily life.
The ophthalmologist suggested that an urgent surgery was the only option followed by getting the right kind of specs. And the rest as they say is history.
