Last day of the week!
Last day of the month!
Last day of the year!

The revellers ensured to make the best of the day to ring in New Year. The most-awaited event of the year brought lots of fun with parties and bashes organised across city to ring in 2018. The gala dinners hosted at hotels and lounges were a great hit, as the winter chill failed to dampen the spirit of the enthusiasts.

Due to the chill, citizens, who decided to stay indoors remained glued in front of TV sets to enjoy special shows for New Year. Many planned a low profile celebration with their families and friends at homes. Many chose to visit gardens and amusement parks with families for a picnic while some visited temples.Youths were seen sharing their resolutions for the New Year with their friends and siblings. Some kept those secret only to be experienced by others through changes during the year.

Citizens exchanged messages, greeting cards and gifts with their beloved ones while cops were seen presenting roses to commuters for their support to safe and peaceful celebrations across the city. For many, the preparing for New Year’s eve commenced a couple of days ago. Many booked holiday packages with their families and friends to different destinations. Those who failed to make any plan, explored other options to celebrate the last day of the year.

City police had made elaborate security arrangements all over the city to ward off any untoward incident on the celebration night. Police bandobast throughout the city snuffed out street parties and cast a dark net on celebration mood. But for men in uniform their were other concerns that weighed in to reinforce ban on loudness in celebration.
For many who feel New Year Eve is all about drinking crates and dancing till they go crazy there are plenty of options as lounges, upscale hotels, resorts and amusement parks made special arrangements to attract them.

Live concerts by few event organisers of the city got tremendous response on New Year Eve. Large crowds gather to attend such shows. Renown Digital Jockeys (DJs) and playback singers like Earl Edgar, DJ Williams, DJ Rahul, RJ Raj, DJ Abhishek, DJ Sumit, DJ KSL, Abhishek Rajput, Khushi Singh etc. performed at different venues, providing a perfect backdrop to celebrations of new year eve.

Happening places of the city like Dharampeth, WHC Road, Futala Lake, Poonam Chambers, Poonam Mall, Variety Square, Medical Square, Shankar Nagar Square, Ambazari Lake, Japanese Garden and Seminary Hills also experienced good number of footfalls on the eve of New Year. In the late evening, fireworks lit up the sky throughout the city and every one wished their near and beloved ones.

The fun filled occasion is considered a great opportunity to get closer to the loved ones in our life and to revive contact with lost friends. The idea is to wave good-bye to the year gone-by and welcome the New Year in the hope that it will invite truckloads of happiness and joy in everyone’s life.
