The first blog of 2019….
It’s morning 9:17, January 1st, 2019 in India while I’m writing this. Almost all the Eastern and European countries have entered 2019. Some American countries or states may haven’t yet.
2019 is not just a year, it’s a path. A good hope of restructuring our messed up lives, like every other year before. Hope we actually do something very effective to make 2019 a great and glorious year for ourselves.

But, for amusement, recreations and politics, and the future of India and the world, 2019 is a very very special year. Now that Cold War II (Trade War) has started between The US and China, it is exciting to see how Dollar defends versus how Yuan attacks. Interesting to see whether Syrian Refugee Crisis ends, whether Indian economy surpasses Britain and becomes 5th largest and many more such political issues.
Game of Thrones Season 8 is set to be released in April. I must tell, those 6 Sundays will be damn exciting. Similarly in April, Avengers End Game is gonna release, a double dose.
The world is mad for Football but the people of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia, England, South Africa, West Indies, New Zealand will be very much busy in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Cricket is a religion for these people and ICC World Cup is a “Once in 4 years” ceremony….!!
Being a citizen of India, this last paragraph belongs to India now. The internationally known Modi government is set to complete it’s term in this April. The General Elections in India are set to begin in mid April, till mid May and After that, which party takes over the Throne of largest democracy in the world is way too exciting. If Modi becomes PM again, we can hope that the 75th Independence day on 15th August 2022 will be more glorious than, if , Rahul Gandhi becomes PM. However, clear majority is not possible for BJP. AIADMK, Shivsena and TRS will be the King Makers. The sectors of Highways, Railways, Power, Sanitation, Cleanliness and Law & Order has done quite well in Modi government. If they re-elect, hope they continue to do so.
I belong to the state of Maharashtra. The Assembly Elections of Maharashtra will be held in October. The most controversial, alleged, attacked yet effective government has failed to please the rural areas of the State. The CM Fadnavis is also at target because of his “caste”. Thus, this election will be even more difficult for BJP. If it does re-elect, Fadnavis sets a record of being the 2nd CM, being elected for consecutive terms.
Every case I stated above, my bias is involved, so as others’. Thus I expect from 2019, a victory over my bias. Even if the dead army wins in the final season of GoT, I’ll be pleased that the all time war seekers are lost. Even if Modi fails to become PM again, I’ll be pleased that Rahul has emerged from a fool to cool. These all are conflict of interests. Thus, winning over bias is the great victory. The eternal victory.
2019 गुलाल आपलाच….!!
