Why is it that the journey to a new location seems longer than the journey back.
So it seems, to Amar’s Pensieve and back.
Located around thirty kilometers from Gachibowli Circle or from Langar Houz, Mehdipatnam, it takes around forty minutes to reach Amar’s Pensieve.
Forty minutes to zone out of the work routine and disconnect from the challenging routines we run. Carl Zimmerman in his article ‘The Brain: Stop Paying Attention: Zoning Out Is a Crucial Mental State’, July-August ’09, Discover Magazine, says “When we are no longer even aware that our minds are wandering, we may be able to think most deeply about the big picture.”
The road from home-office and back is well known to all of us – we urge you to take the road less traveled by, by reminiscing on immortal closing lines of the poem ‘The Road Not Taken’ by Robert Frost (Source: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/173536):
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
On arrival at Amar’s Pensieve, a stretch … , exploration of the training and recreational facility, a desultory visit to the rest rooms, a convivial refreshment, connect us to the activity-based training for the day.
All the senses are occupied in new activity. The inter-personal nature of activity based training enables individual and collective insights; alignment and bonding too.
At the end of the day, refreshed by the change in routine and energized by the days activities, with greater clarity of thought and the course of action, the road-journey back does not seem a chore, anymore.
