I still love what I do

Quiting the best of opportunities in the Corporate world, Switching places, culture and people from the Urban to the Rural space, Leaving behind the 8 to 10 hours of regular office time, the weekends, the Mumbai Local and the experience there in, traveling within limits, the Chaos and hoosh hash rush hours at the Mankhurd and Kurla stations, and many such flavors of daily life in Mumbai for the last 6 years are unforgettable. Now after the establishment of TechYog.Com , things were on the other side of Moon. As the Monsoons started, situations like the Cyclonic warnings by the All India Radio. Heavy Rainfall , danger of the upcoming Flood and of course the Fresh green washed up surroundings. Now as to make a life, make a desire come true, to make it happen even though there are much more sceptisism and circumstances unavoidable , I still love what I do.
