It is always a fascinating observation as to how time and experiences influence our thoughts. Just 6 months ago, the experiences I was going thro, a rejection in an interview followed by a whole set of emotions which I personally felt very difficult to handle.
6 months ago, it was at the Jagadamba petrol bunk and the sign read “No stock”, I was talking to Vinay how the effort of the past years was discredited by a simple and silly interview which I felt was so unfair. It felt rotten inside and the rush of the negative energies was hard enough to handle and the whole scenario felt so very unfair.
6 months later when we meet at the same place, the board still reads the same, nothing much seems to have changed on the outset but I could feel how important the past 6 months have been. There has been a huge shift from from the kind of person I was to what I am now, and I feel extremely proud today. Something which started as an experiment from both sides – an entry into Royal Mysore Walks has changed a lot of things around.
When we both started, we both were unsure as to how things would go and how fit it would be for both of us. The past 6 months have spoken for themselves and I remember the Indiana Jones Leap of faith as I write this. It has been quite a match, Royal Mysore Walks has now become an inseparable part of me and I am extremely proud of what I do. A few days ago, I made a write up on small jobs and big jobs, one of the greatest joys has been of realising what they mean. It’s given me more than what I bargained for. The experience, the satisfaction and the challenges have been momentous and there has been a learning all through. And now with the growing opportunities and challenges, I feel a start up is one of the greatest places to start working. And to this day I am very proud of the decisions I have taken and the people I am working with.
I wanted to dedicate one article to the people who made this happen and a large heartfelt thanks to Vinay!
