As we bid farewell to 2015 and New Year dawns upon us, the world is all set to warmly welcome the arrival of 2016. As a universal tradition, celebrations have kick started around the planet for the occasion of merrymaking and fresh days ahead!
A massive fire has broken out at The Address Hotel in Dubai, a building quite near to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper. While Dubai’s extravagant spree of fireworks fitted with 400,000 LED lights planned at the Burj Khalifa has called people from all over the globe, chances are that the celebrations will be delayed in light of the incident.
