New year 2019
Once again, New Year is all set to amaze people in every possible way. It’s an ideal time of the year when people forget everything happened in the past year and just concentrate on how to make this new beginning joyful and exciting.
But modern India celebrates the birth of each new Gregorian year with much enthusiasm. While the elder people try to maintain the religious spirit connected with their regional New Years, the younger generation is more towards the western trends. Especially in big cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, and Calcutta, the youth celebrate the New year 2019 eve with dance parties and nightclubs. But traditionally, New Year is celebrated with religious ceremonies and positive resolutions or horoscope predictions for the upcoming year. There are many places where burning the statue of a man is related to forgetting the old self is part of the ceremony. This act reminds the people to leave behind the old self, being born again as a new person.
