Jit is currently employed with a Nationalised Bank for 7 years and placed in Calcutta. Whether in office or home, I cannot stop thinking about the memories we will create on this event.
He says “There’s nothing like the view of an unending directionless road over the horizon from the dashboard of your vehicle. The excitement of such a view is probably what piques my gray cells whenever we embark upon a trip.
