"There is no real ending, it's just the place where you stop the story." - Frank Herbert
On 31st March, the last few lines of a story was written aand it's fate sealed. We are talking about the financial year end. The books have been closed for the year 2021 -2022
This part of the year is generally filled with excitement as all entrepreneurs look forward to all the analysis from the number crunching to understand market trends and the financial health of the company. Future strategies are debated and planned based on these reports.
The past 2 years, also strangely coincieding with 2 years of the pandemic have been nothing short of a nightmare. Earlier we used to look at these reports to understand growth of the company and to identify further growth opportunities. Now we look at the reports to see how deep we have fallen, with a question in the mind if we will fall further into abyss or have we bottomed out, can we plan our climb back up and above.
A year back along with the beginning of the last financial year, the virus also started spreading. The tragedy that unfolded was mind numbing. Business and it's processes had vanished from the thought process. We did not know how to respond to what was happening around us. It is during these times that we truly understood the scale and the gravity of the crisis.
Time has moved on since then, the world seems to have a better grip on the situation now. The pandemic is defenitely not over but we have reached a space where we can hope that the worst is over. We are lucky that we (Our Company) has survived the dark phase of the 2nd wave. The scars of the last 2 years will weigh heavily on all of us but we can also take strength that we are still here and the learnings of the past 2 years will make us more considerate, compassionate and caring professionals.
So here we are raising a toast for all of you in this amazing industry of travel and hospitality. Let us all make some happy travel memories for the world. The joy of traveling and holidays beacons all and we from the industry have a huge role to play. Best wishes for that.
