From resolving to exercise more, eat better, and tackle a (now even longer) list of household tasks — most of us fell short of time to accomplish our resolutions. Despite this, we may also realize that certainly there were some major wins in 2022, too.
And by reflecting on these successes, five established Indian personalities share things they learnt in 2022. The personalities we will feature today are

ALI ASHHAR – A prolific poet, short story writer, philosopher and columnist
“2022 was a different year in many ways. It was the first post-pandemic year after life went off-track. One thing I learnt this year is that never take your blessings for granted. We keep comparing our lives with others, often overlooking our own blessings and strengths. You have your family, you have food in your plate, you have clothes over your skin, you have roof over your head, you have access to education. Be grateful, you are privileged enough and strive to work for the underprivileged. Quran teaches us to do good to others as God has done good to us.” – Ali Ashhar

YASHI LATH – An award-winning author and content writer
“Another year comes to an end which gifted many valuable lessons and learnings like every year. This year I got multiple lessons with valuable learnings. This year gave me several new opportunities for expanding my talent but at the same time I discovered the real faces of several people and I realised people wear multiple layers behind their real faces you just have to use your intuition carefully for identifying them. This year also taught me that it’s better to let it go rather than chasing and holding people.
Life is like a road trip and sometimes you have to enjoy the journey rather than worrying about the destination. Life can become a spiral of problems and challenges where you have to make wise choices to smoothly overcome the challenges of life. In the end, just be bold enough to make crucial decisions for your life.
Ready to welcome 2023 with new hopes.” – Yashi Lath
