Dear 2020: An Open Letter To You

by Suman Gupta

The year 2020, though it was welcomed by us but it became the most undesirable year ever. Have you ever thought of writing a personified open letter to 2020 and pouring out everything you felt or experienced during this year? Here is an open letter to 2020 from the writer’s perspective.

Dear 2020: An Open Letter To You

Dear 2020,

You came to us as a usual year. We rejoiced, celebrated and welcomed you as we have done to every year in the past. Talking about myself I am a person who loves every beginning, I had a list of wishes to be fulfilled, a list of works to be done. The number 2020 sounds like something different from other years. I wanted to make you memorable but unfortunately you never wanted anyone to make you memorable rather, the circumstances you bought made you rememberable itself. Yes, my dear 2020 you will be remembered. Not as a year but as a period of transition. You brought Pandemic, you brought death, you brought crisis in every sphere. But we are humans, we will fight, we will survive, our determination and will power is our right.

Soon you will fade away, you have affected everyone’s story but soon you will exist only in the pages of History. You made us challenger, a fighter, a survivor, the one who survived 2020 will somehow win life’s utmost misery. Being a human I am proud of the way we responded to the threat caused by you.

The economic shutdown brought crisis, we suffered, we fell and then rose from the undoing.

Sometimes I think you came to mess with humans, to challenge humans and of course to strengthen humans.

My dear 2020, I would like to end here paying a state of gratitude to you, thank you for teaching us that not every year is going to be the same, thank you for giving us reasons to remember you. Soon we will bid a farewell to you, hoping to see you in the pages of future. Smile and tears both will come.

Simultaneously while remembering 2020.


The one who survived from your threats
