"Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever." -Mark Twain

So I thought it would be wise to give up on this habit of smoking and lets see if Mr. Twain was correct.Its been an awesome year and I am looking forward to a riproaring and a very rosy 2007

नये साल की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें

Heri ya mwaka mpya

Xin nian yu kuai

Shuvo noboborsho

Naya saal ko hardik shubakamana

Gelukkig nieuwjaar

Eutychismenos o kainourgios chronos

Hauoli Mahahiki hou

Boldog uj evet

Selamat Tahun Baru


Sehe Bokmanee Bateuseyo

La Multi Ani si Un An Nou Fericit

Feliz ano nuevo

Laimingų Naujųjų Metų

Happy New year to you too. Why is it that there is no New YEar wish in Telugu/Tamil?

IS this wish being made for Non-Indians??

>this wish being made for Non-Indians??
