This New Year 2072, I will be travelling a lot for professional work as well as personal refreshment. I think I should learn how to be diplomatic because my bluntness is not exactly positive for me at the moment. Also, I have vowed to myself to not help any of my close friends financially as it has soured a lot of my relationships! Lastly, I plan to be more health-conscious and stay away from junk food. In the end, I wish all a very happy and healthy New Year.

I also intend to be more focused in singing and compose many songs.

I am pretty excited to do further creative work in 2072, especially for women empowerment & development through communications. With a very busy schedule and consistent deadlines, I am getting a little bored doing the same thing over and over again. So I hope to do some innovative research, in-depth stories being more focused on social issues about women. Besides these, I am planning to attend some international conferences & seminars to enhance my knowledge. I also just finished working for a woman-oriented Book called “Delights women in Nepal” with a wonderful team that is going to be launched very soon. I want to do similar types of work in future. I want to make more time for my baby Aayaan & family in the year-2072. Lastly, as I am someone who feels very lazy to get up early in the morning, I think I have to change this habit in the coming days.
