Two things have become constant about New Year Resolutions. First is to make a resolution and the second is to break it at your convenience the very next day.
So, as the New Year draws near, there is this resolve to take a resolution to lead a better life, to be a better human being. Two weeks after, those resolutions are forgotten with the blame often placed on the daily rigours of life.
Actor Mukesh admits that resolutions in his life had often met with such a fate over the years. But this time round he is set to welcome the New Year with a steely resolve.
“From now on I will be a regular at a health club and do yoga for my physical and mental well being. Only belatedly did I realise the importance of such healthy practice in an artist's life,” he says.
Actor Ramya Nambeeshan, however, has lost faith in her own determination to observe different resolutions after her resolutions during the last five years had gone awry. So, she has resolved to take resolution of a different kind this time.
“I have decided not to have a resolution this year. There is only one life and it should be lived to the fullest without placing any restrictions. Of course, I want to be humane and want to feel proud on looking back at my life later,” she says.
Jayadeep Narasimhan, a senior official with a sanitaryware company, is another one who has decided not to take resolutions too seriously. Well, he will take a resolve, about which he is yet to decide.
“Whatever be the resolution, it will be strictly observed on January 1 and life will be back to ‘normal' from the very next day,” he says. He is quick to recollect that it was his determination to rein in his drinking habit that helped him own a flat last year. Then there are others like Anupama, an HR professional in an IT company, who is never disheartened despite repeated failures to fulfil the objective of her resolution year-after-year.
