“10, 9, 8,… Everyone, wish you all the happiness, peace, success, prosperity in your life, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,…. Happy New Year!”, echoed Harrdy Sandhu, as he brought in the year 2022 with a countdown at PC Chandra Gardens Golden Acres this NYE, organised by What’s in D Name, in association with The Telegraph.
