          CROSSING INTO NEW YEAR Once again the train of time slowing down halts at the last destination of the Old Year. Another engine waits in the yard to take it to an unknown station. No checking, no restrictions at the border; only rejoicing in the air; a smooth crossing into the New Year - all bags of possessions intact. Is it a new departure or a simple transition into time refreshed, resuming its journey on an elongated track seemingly endless? The New Year once appearing so distant is now suddenly here with its plethora of promises. Hope lingers, asking: will they be fulfilled?

                  I was really missing my wife when she left me for someone else. I was weak to take care of some situations and i let her slip my arms. I had to talk to my partner at the office who recently got her husband back. She told me to get in touch with John Patience who helped her get her husband back with a love spell. I was very sure of this because John has helped my partner get her husband back. So i called John Patience and told him i lost my lover and wanted her back. He encouraged me and told me to be happy. He did his thing and told me my wife will be back in 45 hours. I waited for that time and my wife called me and told me that she has forgiven me and ready to take me back in her life. Since then, my wife and i have been enjoying our marriage with our lovely 4 kids. I am very grateful to John for what he has done for me. I'd advice you to ask him for help if you have any problem on your relationship and some other aspects of life.His email is :)

                              While the year 2015 is closing on 31 December 2015, yielding place to new year 2016 with a heavy load of substantial concerns identified by this Vedic astrology writer on 23rd October 2014 , over a year past from now , in article - " Months of substantial concern for India in next year 2015" - published online at thesop. It may be said that months November - December 2015 were predicted to be more grim and complex. Readers may have noted that prediction was sadly accurate in as much as Chennai- Tamil Nadu had a catastrophe in worst ever floods , National Herald Case got momentum in which, during the period, his had to appear before a Delhi court , Delhi was choked with smog harmful to lungs in particular , demolition of Jhuggies in Shakurbasti Railway station in Delhi , mive protests in Nirbhaya case in the Capital , BSF plane crashed in Dwaraka in which all on board died, allegations of corruption or wrong-doing were levelled by the first time heard , the Wikileaks For India , against DDCA , there were reported raids in Delhi Govt Secretariat by CBI , rift between AAP and BJP came out stronger in public, some defamation cases were filed against AAP members, Northern India was shaken by earthquake more than once but fortunately no particular damage was reported , security concerns in the North had to be tackled in which many lives were lost and latest is Delhi Govt having uneasy times with its senior officers. Briefly speaking , these were unfortunate happenings or stories of November- December 2015 having much to do with the new year 2016 just to begin in a day. Readers may be interested to know the predictions of this writer for year 2016. Yes, there are but a bit of concern about the way these can be rightly put is lingering. Anyway, this writer wishes that the Supreme Power said to be empowering us, may grant us more courage to face whatever is repugnant to us and also grace to enjoy that part which comes in harmony with our aspirations.
