The last day of December, heralds the first day of January, the first month of the year and is seen by all as a new beginning and a new blank page in the book of life, promising hope and prosperity to all.. The month is named after ‘Janus’, the two headed Roman God of beginning, transition, doorways and change. While one head looks into the past, the other head looks into the future. For Balajians, this month is special for them as it marks the society’s birthday and gives them an opportunity to celebrate life with their friends. The month also marks the additional birthday of India, as it contains the day when the country transformed itself from a Dominion into a Sovereign Republic. As we look forward to life in 2018, let’s have a look at the major events in January that took place in Sri Balaji Society where Discipline, Dedication and Determination is the trinity that watches over all night and day.
