In the world of business, we are often seen seeking a break in life. A regular routine is not more than a maze. It is quite tough to reschedule the whole daily ledger in a go. Furthermore, fixing a new task in the busy routine is again so difficult.

For now, we rest in the stillness that the dark nights bring. Now is the time to turn inward, to rest, recover and recuperate.
