Good things never come to an end. It is the same way I feel today as I march towards my future aspirations. As you might be aware, I will be moving out for my further studies at IIM Lucknow from 4th April. But said that , I would also be taking an overflowing baggage of sweet memories that I have built with your wonderful support from last X years.


It is a small world and I hope to meet you again in some part of this world. Thanks for the wonderful support throughout my stay in this project.

We can keep in touch through my web world which I call ‘Outreach’ at  http://www.amarnaik.com (Please access through non project machinesJ ) OR my personal email id : XX@XX.COM

  1. SO sweet! I’m so glad I got to read your email and those responses. I don’t know if I have ever sent a “goodbye” email, but I have written “goodbye” notes and letters. It’s always so nice when people respond to them. And Amar, best wishes for your future projects and endeavors!


  2. Nicely composed letter. I think it’s always good to say goodbye with a positive note and let people know they mattered in your working relationship. It’s great to leave solid bridges behind.


  3. First Congrats Amar! IIML is cool 🙂 Best wishes!
