The Mayans had their calendar to keep track of time. It was an attempt to
describe the cycles of life, combining their limited scientific
understanding and certain mystic insights appropriate to their culture. To a
Mayan, the end date of their calendar would have special significance, but I
don't think it would apply to other peoples. If I bought a car with an
odometer that went up to 99,999.9 miles and after driving the car for many
years the odometer passed through that number, the car would still work, the
odometer would cycle back to 0.0 miles, and the car would keep running.
People driving other cars with other odometer settings may not notice
anything special happening in the world at that moment.
There may not be astronomical significance to 2012, but to people that care
about Mayan culture, it could be a time to pause, reflect on life, and
consider what will happen it days to come, much like might be celebrated on
New Year's Eve regarding the coming year.

Does the world-wide disasters and sufferings have anything to do with the
approaching end of Mayan Calendar in 2012, which quite a few men make a fuss
about in the internet?
No. 2013 will dawn with the world the same as it was in 2012.
