Its December! Tis the season to be jolly!! If you haven't already gathered, I am very much into the festive spirit. Its not just me, December is a month that puts a smile on almost everyone's face. Its the end of the year and time for a new beginning, its the holiday season, the party season, the wedding season and here in UAE its the season of national pride.
I'm also taking this opportunity to introduce my brand new website www.komalskorner.com, the place you are at right now. Its got a bit of the old and a bit of the new and its got a whole lotta me and the community in it, so take a look around and tell me what you think. At the same time I would like to offer my condolences to Paul Walker's family and friends, the Fast and the Furious actor who passed away in a tragic car accident last night on his way to a charity event, may his soul rest in peace.

This years celebration has added vigour in light of the recent win by Dubai to host the Expo in 2020. The spirit of the Union can be see all over the country ahead of the National day on December 2.
