"I work with the dark forest experiential zone in the city. When I see kids of different age groups come here, I regret discontinuing school. My native is Karimnagar and I stopped my education after inter second year because I wasn't interested. I spent a lot of time loitering around before I shifted to Hyderabad in search of a job. Had I studied further, I would've had better opportunities, which would've given me a happier life. As a child, I wanted to be a teacher but never studied enough for it.
There's some independence here but I also miss home.
Everytime I go home, my family gets together for dinner party. My friends also plan parties, especially if I visit them during festivals or any other occasions. From my monthly earnings, I send 70% of it home and the rest, I spend here. I've never worked so hard in my life. But like they say, life is full of challenges. One thing I'm looking forward to is marrying my
mardal (cousin). She's studying right now and once both of us are settled, we plan to get married."
