Without a second thought, I boarded it thinking my fate was linked to this city and not to the hosiery city. When I got down at Vadapalani bus stand, I was hungry and tired. The drivers and conductors there took good care of me. It was not long before I took up the job of a daily labourer at a construction site nearby. But in just six months, I developed blisters on my legs because of the cement. I applied to a security agency and worked as a watchman. I was posted to different areas every day, but was not paid well. So, I took up a job with another firm for a good pay. But as fate would have it, I was asked to be a temporary watchman in a house for a few days. The family took a liking for me and I was inducted into cooking by them.
