Students of Hindu college were in for a surprise this semester as the college promised to reveal a much better equipped and immensely improved sports complex.What had once been a land of overgrown grass and bits of barren land is now regaining its elegance as the college puts in all efforts to build up a complex that fulfills its students’ expectations.

Although entrance into the complex is restricted for now, a basketball court and football field with lush green grass already built to perfection is visible and we can also expect a volleyball court up and ready in some time to increase the variety of sports offered. Adding to the delight our little birdy says it might not be a disappointment to watch out for a cricket pitch. The sport enthusiasts of Hindu will finally have a complex they can call their own and a reason to sweat it out with the new gym.


Although no specific date for the completion of this project has been revealed yet, we did find out that it’s more sooner than later that Hinduites will have a new reason to brag and the new sports complex will become the much awaited gem of the college.

We wish Hindu all the best for this project and hope from the bottom of our heart that it doesn’t reach the same end as the last sports complex did and with the new management and the attempts made by them to keep the complex clean it won’t be wrong to presume that this time the story will be different.

Oh, yes! It’s that time of the year again…when we forget the past and welcome the unknown future, when we open up our new diaries and stack the old ones for an inevitable dusty destiny, when we finally get down to cleaning out the closet for all the new things to come. The New Year and the overall festive mood bring with it a bunch of things that need to be done…but just wait a second, there are some things that you need not do this New Year’s Day. In fact, you should probably avoid them as much as you can!

1. Make a list or resolutions

Don’t. Just for once don’t put that pen to paper. We all know how this one goes – we make a list of unreal and passionate resolutions that somewhere, say after two days, become too much work for a year and dangle on our heads like a sword, a bitter reminder of everything we could have been. Well, what’s the point? Instead, start this New Year by acting on your goals. Do the little things and then slowly move on to the bigger ones.
Don’t just write, but do it, too.


2. Hold on to bad memories

We all have a tendency to hold on to the bad memories in life but whether it’s the backstabbing friend or an ex-flame, no matter how many unanswered questions remain in your head, take a deep breath and just LET IT GO. There is a huge chance that you will never get that closure unless you decide it’s time, and what better time than the beginning of a New Year?
Like Beyonce and Shakira have taught us, it’s just not worth the drama.


3. Drunk calls

There is a reason why you should always keep your phone away while drinking. There are things, dark and very embarrassing things, that your head and mouth and alcohol can do together that you didn’t even think you were capable of. Even though you want to be the first one to wish everyone, drunk calls are always a big NO.
And remember, while you are getting sloshed this New Year you want to enjoy the 31st and not wake up when it’s 2nd of Jan.

4. Forward all sorts of chain messages

This one is for those who see it as their duty to forward all sorts of chain messages – God loves you…God doesn’t…Forward to 15 people…lame optimistic stories. Let me break it down to you – NOBODY CARES.
No one wants these messages and unless your plan this year is to annoy your friends, this is the worst way to send out wishes.
Give them a call instead; it is a much more appreciated form of communication.

5. Make it a normal day

This may sound clichéd and the more pessimistic of us would go ‘What is so great about New Year anyway? It’s just another day!’

But it’s not. In fact, it is a reason to not make a day “just another day”. It’s a reason to celebrate, forgive and forget. So, go out there, enjoy yourself. Make this day about yourself and everyone around you and someday you might just get the year you think you deserve.

Happy 2014!
