Culture Shock

I have witnessed a fair share of champagne moments in a grand prix, a cricket match and with friends. This new year I was with my family & close relatives and it was fun, but i had never expected a champagne to be popped in front of family and in front of my granny. It was a culture shock to me. Wat's more interesting is, every one was fine with it including my granny. The shock was due to difficulties in accepting the new culture, causing difficulty in knowing what is appropriate and what is not, as alcohol was a taboo in an bram community like ours. But must say I'm not against it altogether. Well did I raise a Glass ? I still haven’t raised the glass. I'm still waiting for the right moment, and tell myself how tasty it will be if I ever accomplish something special in my life. All in all when I look back, 2008 was very gloomy and I could have done much better in whatever I did. Looking forward to a new year with new hopes.
