It was a bad day at the office. I left early. As I dragged myself back from work I was taken over by frustration and started cursing myself and my job. It was that feeling of ‘being trapped’ which many of us have felt sometime or other in our career - you know how it makes us feel helpless and miserable.

In the previous article I had tried to put forth my vision for upgrading the neighbouring areas of Patna Junction – this article would concentrate on Patna Airport.
