Bidding a bittersweet goodbye to 2020, people across the world welcomed the New Year in their own unique style. While many of them continued the tradition to try on new cuisines, many shared their resolution on the internet. Yet there were many people, who took the opportunity to share photographs of the first sunrise of 2021.
The year 2020 had been gruelling with coronavirus pandemic jolting health care systems and hammering economies. However, with a new dawn, netizens hoped to expel the darkness of the past year. “May the first sunrise of 2021 give you motivation, positive energy, positive thinking, good health and keep you energetic throughout the year. I wish you all a very happy new year 2021,” a Twitter user wrote while sharing the photograph of glinting sun. “Wishing everyone a fruitful year,” added another zealous user.
Meanwhile, ANI also joined the trend of posting pictures of the beautiful sun rising in Kolkata. "The sun rises over the horizon, in Kolkata, overlooking the Hooghly river and the Howrah Bridge on the first day of the year 2021,” they tweeted and shared the picture.
