“So, as we head into 2021 it is concern that makes me pen down my thoughts of a year that filled millions of lives with fear, anxiety, disruption, scandals, hypocrisy, lies, truths, realisation, enlightenment, bravery, strength, courage, charity, confusion, clarity and character. Most of these emotions I have felt myself, as I silently observed each and every one of them overwhelms me with an emotion that each of the adjectives bring,” he wrote.
As for family, he said that there is a tendency to take them for granted, “always thinking they are always there, till relationships just become relations”. However, he thanked each one of them and expressed gratitude.
