Asia | India | Indian Himalayas | Himachal Pradesh – High on Himachal!
With a toal work experience of 7 years and working with IBM for almost 3 years, at a middle management position, life was not treating me the way I expected it to.
‘Quit, leave all this behind and start a new life … you are wasting it here!’, is something I told my self every morning while I drove for work.
There are days when we all wanna quit and run away for some reason. And then things get better and we get engaged with our duties and life moves on.
August 1st 2005, while I drove to work there was a strong positive feeling inside me about the whole idea of quiting this job. There was too much monotony, stress and lack of interest on my part.
Later the same day I resigned from IBM and put in my papers. It was a great rush, a strange feeling of joy as I looked forward to starting a new life, a new place, a new career … somewhere in hills in Himachal.
Manali is where I plan to go. Own a small business .. a guest house with a small cafe should do it for me, while i wander in the mystical lands of Himachal in my own free time.
