Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 31 Dec 15 ,A sour 2015
When you look at 2015, it wasn’t a good year in terms of international safety and natural disasters. Terrorism was more visible in the global scenario vis a vis the Paris attacks, Mali, Nigeria and many others, the kidnapping of children in Nigeria and Daesh domination in many countries. Other than some climate change deals, not much more political changes happened in many countries.
In the largest democratic country, India’s parliamentary functions were disrupted by the Opposition and this was not a healthy sign for the country’s development.
The UAE has shown dramatic development both in infrastructure and international bilateral relationships, which was a good sign.
Before concluding my observations on 2015, I am wishing the millions of Gulf News readers a very happy and healthy new year and I pray for a wonderful 2016 with peace and harmony.
From Mr K. Ragavan
