Mubaarak, meaning auspicious, should be the way to usher in a new year. This word has often been used in Urdu poetry as a way of taunting. For instance, in Shakeel Badayuni's sher, the poet is complaining about the lover's oblivion.
Ye ada-e-be-niyaazi tujhe bewafa mubaarak
Magar aisi be-rukhi kya ki salaam tak na pahunche
