Another Year Comes To An End; A New Beginning

The end is always a beginning, giving rise to fresh hope and opportunity. It’s hard to believe that the year has come and is almost gone. It seems like only yesterday that we were still in the hot days of summer and were surviving through the balmy days of August. And as we come to December, it’s always a good opportunity to take stock of the past year.

Hurtling into our end-of-the-year edition, I became conscious of the breakneck speed at which 2017 has come to its end. The hospitality industry’s fast pace keeps us all on our toes, no doubt. But, in our execution of the many visions and associated projects we all establish for ourselves and our companies, we rarely get tranquil moments to really reflect on what we’ve achieved, how far we’ve come and what that means to our futures. So we decided to look at MBD’s flagship property, the Radisson Blu MBD Noida hotel, and how over the years, it has kept raising the bar and setting new standards for itself and the industry at large. The leader of the pack, the hotel has once again gone for a complete makeover to once again come on top as the trendsetter in the hospitality business. Come take a look at that sense of pride.

2017 like every other year has had its ups and downs. The economy showed signs of sluggishness midway but as the year closes there is hope for some smart recovery. We take a look at the end-of-2016 demonetisation decision and how it affected our lives in the year gone by. From the politics of DeMon to the 100 years of the October Revolution we, as usual, bring to you the home and world at your fingertips. We take you through the amazing story of the SpiceJet revival in the Business Section with a close look at the man behind it – Ajay Singh. We also walk you through the paces of the glorious year in our sports calendar and look at an Augmented World in our DW trend section.

And then to end the year with some light reading there is a personal diary throwing light on the days gone by. Finally, to wrap up we give you the usual pages of books and foods.

Merry holidays and Happy New Year to you and yours!
