Let’s Not Forget…

Dear Readers,

With the festive season upon us, the excitement is starting to build and we look forward to prepping for the many celebratory and joyous occasions, that we can all now finally celebrate, gathered as family, friends and as a community. What a relief to be able to hug and laugh and yak and be merry alongside our loved ones, in person, after the long covid separation.

This would also be a good time to look back, review and reflect on our experiences over the past two years, and how these have changed our perceptions, our priorities… and our lives. And how increasingly, these have come to form new guidelines, even as the sense of ‘new’ fades from the ‘new normal’ that we had all been dreading so much, but have now adapted to, even embraced and learnt to move on with.

All the material pleasures and luxuries of the world could do little to do away the blues, the fears and the apprehensions we lived with through those dark times. The only thing that we longed for, and which got us through the challenge, was, more than all else, the human connect. As social animals, being connected with each other is as much our instinct, as it is our need. We were the only factors which could empathise and console, as well as empower each other to survive this calamity.

Which is why, when the worst is now hopefully behind us, let us never forget, when push comes to shove, ‘what really matters’ is our humanity, and what truly makes a difference is our ability to lift others. In challenging times and in times of joy and festivity, let us never forget to reach out to those who could do with our presence and support, in the true and intended spirit of our Parsipanu!

Have a lovely weekend!
