New York sources have stated that 2017 dawned on the US with promise of momentous changes as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has launched the ceremonial drop of the iconic ball at Times Square, the “Crossroads of the World,” cheered by a crowd of revelers estimated at two million. The annual ritual marking the start of the New Year took place amid high security, with roads blocked off by sand-filled trucks to ward off potential attackers, and visitors, who began gathering since morning, put through security checks.


Meanwhile away from New York, President-elect Donald Trump, his wife Melania and 10 year old son Barron celebrated at a New Year ball in his Mara-a-Lago estate. Actor Sylvester Stallone was among the 800 guests. Barack Obama was in his native state Honolulu with his family for a quiet celebration of the last New Year’s Day of his presidency. But 2017 will arrive five hours later on the far-flung island several time zones away in the Pacific.

Sources have stated that both Presidents had spent the day Saturday playing golf at places nearly 5,000 miles away. As the clock raced to midnight in New York, Ban in his last act as Secretary General hit the switch that sent the 5.3-tonne, 3.6-metre diameter ball made of crystal panels down a 43 meter flagpole to reach its base atop 1 Time Square at the moment the New Year dawned.


It was stated that the New Year marks an important political milestone for Indian Americans. Nikki Haley will be the first Indian American to hold a cabinet level post as the ambassador to the UN and Kamala Harris will be the first Indian American in the Senate. Four others, Ami Bera, Pramila Jayapal, Raja Krishnamoorthi and Ro Khanna, will be in the House of Representatives.
