As over the period of time, visiting numerous bars during youth, seeing bartenders playing with drinks always fantasizes their job. After completed our graduation and working for five years in Edinburgh, Scotland, I decided to come back to India.

People always took less interest in trusting two young inexperienced, unbearded person over the middle aged or the person doing the same business over the years. Though Challenges are always part of any business and there are many different type of challenges and struggles you can face any time and at any stage like the one world is facing right now when complete hospitality and tourism industry is on hold.

Always believed in few quotes; one from Robert T Kiyosaki: - “It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power.

And the other one from Swami Vivekananda - “We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”
