On Wednesday 29th of May 2013, the day after Agni Nakshatram ended, our first Tonic Tour took a gang of 10 senior citizens (oldest being 89 years young) to Dakshinachitra as planned. The air-conditioned coach left at 9:30 AM from our office and reached back at 3 PM right on schedule.
“First day I did not get up and say what am I going to do today?. Thanks for making this a wonderful day” said one 85 year old man, while his wife agreed with much gusto!
“My mother really enjoyed it, especially the pottery session”, said a happy son who called in the next day.
Though the weather was reasonably pleasant for the time of year, it was nevertheless a rather hot day. As we were returning after a sedate half day of watching pottery and glass blowing demonstrations followed by lunch, we thought the gang would be too tired to talk. To our surprise, all of them had only one question to ask – “Where are we going next?”
To the spirited people who traveled on our first tour, a big thank you! Your words of appreciation are to us the wind beneath our wings.
Here’s to many more such trips.
