Going by the Bhutanese calender, our new year starts today. Today marks the beginning of lunar-male-water-dragon year. We call it Losar, -the new year.
Even though Losar is traditionally a new year, It mean lot more than that. There are people who consider it as holy and auspicious. People make resolutions, exchange gifts and make endless good wishes for each other.
For me, Losars are always a great moments. It brings me immense joy, both in terms of remembering the past and valuing the present. It gives me the strength and will power to march into an uncertain future with an air of confidence.
In the words of my Hero, -My father, he told me that, on Losar days, one should never indulge into something that is just as bad as the 'bad' because, Losars are time to celebrate good moments and forgive and forget the harsh experiences. He also told me that, one should sing aloud and smile a lot, because its only when you sing and smile, that the world around you sings and smiles back at you.
With this I would like to wish all my readers a happy and fulfilling year of Dragon.
