(Article written exclusively for the India Today Group- Click Here)
Like all fellow mortals had to succumb to social pressure to put this lousy pic with an optimistic message to give you yet another reason to vomit all over the club in the New Year's bash
WHY? HOW? WTF? I have not even met half of my annual weight loss target.
Incase these are the kind of questions popping up in your mind. Worry not, we're here to help you. It's that time of the year when columnists shall advise their readers on one of the following topics-
a) How to spend the holidays with your loved ones?
b) How to give indirect signals to your loved ones that the 52 piece cutlery set gifted by them for your home is too lavish for its inhabitants namely you & your pomerian.
c) How to gun down the 'we were just passing by your place, so thought we will drop in' kinda guests ?
d) How to camouflage yourself in the numerous facebook status updates & check ins popping up every milliseconds while not celebrating anything.
Pardon me I shall not be able to offer any scholarly responses on the above.
This happens to be that time of the year where you are bombarded with posters all around you like-

December is also the month where homo sapiens use their collective intellectual energies to reminiscence & remind each other of the cat videos they missed on YouTube during the year.
Guy 1 -"Hey did you see that video of that dog pushing a cat in the bathtub video.Fuckin awesome bro!"
Guy 2 - "Nope, but I did see the one of a cat under a shower.So awwwww worthy it was, I tell you."
Guy 1- "Chal ,chal. Let's catch up on cat videos on my laptop. Oh & that Sardar Naagin dance video too."
Now 2014 was a year filled with optimism. Husbands got to watch Modiji's receding hairline more than their wife's facial wrinkles. Which is really not a bad deal if you ask me. This was all thanks to a brilliant media campaign. India got a new charismatic prime minister while Rahul Gandhi was busy chest bumping Arnab Goswami.
Bollywood gave us many profound films this year,
Jai Ho- A douchebag on a mission to save mankind from peril by forming a multi level chain of good deed doers. Before you know it they start selling Sandhi Sudha door to door to bring about social change in a country where no social gathering is complete without aunties boasting about their body pains to each other with immense competitive spirit.
A candid pic of Lord SRK & the gorgeous Deepika Padukone hanging around with some struggling actors in the Bollywood flick 'Happy New Year'
Now that I have covered both SRK's & Bhai's film I shall be saved from hate mails unless Jacky Bhagnani is your demi god, in which case you might as well make love to a cactus & die of blood loss consequently.
Speaking of world events, many lives were lost as people got affected with the deadly Ebola virus thereby putting all countries on high alert. So much so that when India's first Ebola case hit Delhi, as a nation we were busy passionately speculating the no of starters at Arpita Khan's wedding.
ALS Ice bucket challenge.Water conservation? WTF does that even mean?
A global trend known as 'ALS Ice bucket challenge' hit social media by storm. This was the time where hypocrites protesting against the Tomatina festival food waste joint hands together to waste other precious resources ie water.
"How can you waste rotten tomatoes man? Make Sev Tamatar subzi bro"
Definition- 'Sev Tamatar '- An authentic gujju recipe invented by visionaries in their quest to find some meaning to life in a world void of Tandoori chicken & Reshami kebabs owing to religious concerns.
In other news, little did scientists know that their state of the art US army drones would one day serve humanity in vital ways such as capturing ISIS fighters raping goats red handed. #true story
Please do maintain safe distance from people whose main New Year plan is pretty much asking other people about their New Year plans.
This is a unique breed of species which goes from cubicle to cubicle within the office proudly proclaiming they have already booked tickets to Seychelles for the holidays while you are still waiting for your grumpy boss to approve your leave. Social protocol demands that you must reply to these guys with an equally exotic destination.
#ProTip- Machu Picchu is a good reply to shut their mouths & prevent any further interrogation by them considering the prevailing low geographical skills amongst the masses.
That's all for now. Till we meet again next year I shall eagerly wait to reunite with my grand total of 2.5 readers & by Valentine's day 2015 might even develop a long distance relationship with them. Beware :P
