I work at a local restaurant and run the fresh juice counter for them. I have been doing this for the last 10 years and I have witnessed how Electronics City has changed over the years.

I stay at Gollahalli and I come by bicycle to work. My routine starts at 7 am and goes on till 8 pm. Sundays are usually spent with my small kids who are in school. I love telling stories about my village and ancestors. They love that as well and this gives me a chance to recollect the past.

I take them for shopping on Sundays. They usually demand for an ice-cream every Sunday.
