A letter to 2012

by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan

Dear 2012,
At last you are coming to an end! I don’t know why I have been waiting for your arrival in 2011!
It’s been a long, I repeat, L-O-N-G year, mixed with positive & negative events. Not to sound too complaining, but I want to start with your negative sides.


  • I lost a very dear family member of mine, my dear aunt…due to oral cancer. I am still at denial it actually happened! [read here]
  • Had to take leave from Dentistry practice due to my illness.
  • We all have a friend with whom we can share even the silliest stuff! Well, I had to let go of that dear friend of mine, who had to go abroad for higher studies.


  • I had my second surgery….which gave me the opportunity to visit Chennai again and shop till I drop! [Thank you DAD!!] Read about the journey here!
  • Started a new job….completely different than my Dentistry background.
  • Turned my health care blog “The Other Side” into a much bigger blog “Sifa’s Corner” featuring beauty, fashion, lifestyle along with health-care.
  • Started my freelance work as a makeup artist. [Here are some of the pictures]
  • Started working as a member of the Influenster community. [read here]
  • Started guest blogging. [read here]


  • My struggle with TOS remained just like before… I have to live for the day and take every day as a battle with the chronic pain.
  • My love for writing! Yes…I am thankful that I started this blog [though with a lot of doubt and shyness!]
    It has become the ground where I can give back to others with my knowledge & experience.

In a nutshell, you are going to be one of the most memorable years of my life 2012, but unfortunately for the negative sides. I will always look back to this year and one thing will echo in my mind…The year I lost my aunt.
Looking forwards to 2013…let’s see what it unfolds!
[P.S. Wishing you very happy and blessed New Year readers!
No matter where you are, no matter who you are….I wish you all the very best for 2013!]

Ti auguro un 2013 che inizi bene, prosegua come desideri e che termini con grandi soddisfazioni.
Ti auguro di camminare su una strada chiamata vita, di inciampare in una pozza chiamata fortuna, di cadere in un abisso chiamato felicità.
Ti auguro un amore sincero accanto a te che sappia comprenderti e guardarti nel cuore con amore
per ciò che sei.
