Why should we as bhramins need to wish and celebrate New year as this is purely a Christian tradition. And let us not brush it off by saying that the whole world runs on English calendar. Does any other faith wish us on a Tamil or a Kannada or a Telugu new year day, which is our traditional new year day. We are diluting ourself and then blaming on all the atrocities forced on us which infortunately we ourself have accepted. Let us think and act appropriately to save our beliefs.
