What do you wish for the New Year
The New Year is here. Professionals speak to Monarose Sheila Pereira about what they wish for the New Year.
Dr. Malcolm Fonseca, Gynaech
My wish for the New Year is ‘Better Governance’. It is the key to unlocking our present problems and chaos in the world. Better governance will lead to improved situations, economies, peace happiness, and prosperity the world over. It is the key that will unlock great potential for a better tomorrow, a better world, a better country, healthier people, and a better lifestyle. These are the important needs of the day and hope governments and people cooperate to bring this improved state of affairs.
Unnati Dhurandhar, Advocate
I wish to see a pandemic-free world embracing each other. I wish to see different groups of people mingling with each other without any inhibitions. I wish to see a humane and sensitive side of the pharma giants. I wish to see unconditional love and humanity… I wish to see a new me and a new you reaching out to each other, this time to heal each other and not for a pound of flesh.
Joyce Fernandes, Confectioner
I wish fr the Christmas spirit to continue throughout the year and always. May we all live with love, joy, peace, justice, and be humane and just towards each other. There is too much bitterness. The world needs to be a sweeter place.
Dr. Padmakar Nandekar, Managing Director
The start of a new year can be a very moving experience. It’s a time when we reflect with gratitude on the past and set our hopes and intentions for the days ahead.
What’s more, a new year gives us an opportunity to reinvigorate our enthusiasm for chasing goals and dreams. With so much pressure on the moment, it can be hard to come up with just the right words to express new year wishes for friends, family, and cherished co-workers. I hope we use our opportunities properly.
Dr. Mukesh Batra, Homeopath
I wish good health for all in the coming year. May covid disappear and people go back to leading normal, healthy lives. I also hope that the coming year brings healing and happiness to those who have been traumatised by the loss of jobs, money, or the passing away of a loved one. May we all wish the pandemic away and look for a more peaceful and joyous year ahead.
