Default Refresh before shutting down my BUSINESS

Well site seeing trips always done for one or other reason. This time I had to plan simple and best refreshing trip during the time when I had to undergo end of relation in my BUSINESS. Last couple of years of bumpy ride ended in bad style for me! My Boss termianted me because he had to take bold step one or other day!

I take anything +vely. So I right away found time to plan a trip which family members enjoyed it!

So booking done in advance and journey started around 6:30AM from Bangalore. Had good breakfast in 1 hour time and crossed Mysore by 9:30AM.

Spotted BULLET on the way! Thats majestic bike for sure.

Hey Ravi, Nice to see you have bought a Safari and started cruising again. Its always refreshing to revive this karnataka thread moreso when you are out of country (its nostalgic for me).

Dont worry on your life. One terminations might open doors for multiple opportunities and more prospective ones as well. So enjoy and chill.

I could not agree more. As they say, when one door closes another opens.

Nice to know that you go on a trip to get some time away from professional muck. Ups and downs are part of life is a lesson I learnt in the last 2 years. Went through much of muck myself especially at the professional front. With the job security constantly under threat, and a new member in family, the pressure was too much. However, realisation came quickly, that it's never the end of the road.
You are now another inspiration! All the best Ravi. Like everything else, this would also pass.
