Ah, the dawn of a new year.
That time of the year when you feel like you’ve got a brand new page to start on.
You’re pumped, you’ve got big plans, and you’ve got this sneaky suspicion that this next year is going to be YOUR year.
And with this enthusiasm, comes the genuine desire to spread this happiness by wishing your friends and family a happy new year.
But this year, there’s a difference (you’ve got big plans, remember?)
You’re thinking about making your wishes stand out from the rest by wishing some of them a happy new year in Gujarati. Their very own language! That’s going to be your first challenge for this year.
But how on earth are you going to do that?
… by learning it from yet another super-simple Lazy But Smart post by your favorite Gujarati blogger who has come to save the day.
That’s how 🙂
