2008 - A Year of Volatility

Recession, share market change, oil prices and essential commodity prices are affecting almost all country/organization/employees/citizens globally. One news item shows some 100 of our brothers dying everyday because of malaria in African countries. Thousands of Tamil people killed by government troupes in Sri Lanka’s local war. Everyone saw a major fall in the global share market this year. We are all praying for a good change in the share market.

Due to hike in global oil prices, price of grocery items gone up beyond purchasing power. As a family man, I expect reduction in commodity prices. In this situation, more rumours about possible war against terrorism & terror nations down the lane which may increase the survival fear too.

Almost whole of 2008 was so volatile which made me stronger enough to accept more challenges in future.
