As I was playing with my calculator, I observed some symmetrical thing about the number 2010. The number when written in decimal form (base 10) to octal form (base 8) gives value 3732. When the number 2010 is written as octal form and converted to decimal form gives value 1032. The absolute values for trigonometric functions like sine, cosine, tangent for both these numbers is same. Eg. sin(3732) = sin(1032) etc. The number 2010 in binary form gives 11111011010 is again symmetric as the 11 digit number is divisible by 11 i.e. the sum of odd placed and even placed digits is same.

The number 2010 when taken as such in base 16 and converted into decimal form turns 8208. This number is given on net as narcissistic number (An n- digit number that is sum of the nth powers of its digits) i.e. 84 + 24 + 04 + 84 = 8208. :)

May this symmetric year brings lots of success to u all. With His blessings and your efforts may you all excel beyond horizons and all of your fondest dreams come true... Wish u all a very happy n prosperous new year 2010.

Happy New Year
