Three of us had been to Mysore and seeing the palace was not the goal.
One of us had to sit for a bank exam – Yes, some people do crazy things like that – travel to be tested for mental intelligence. That trip was a huge waste for me – We saw the Palace glitter from outside the gate because we were late. We were late because of the exam.
In fact my role in that trip was mostly of an aunt in vigilance – The other two thought more is power, more people means more safety.
I paid for the trip for one big zero experience. Just that they are awesome people. So I could survive this pathetic episode.
