We have been blessed with wonderful staff to help us in our household here at IISc.
Geetha comes daily (except Sundays) to clean the floors and bathrooms, and wash the dishes. Sometimes her mother, Venkatama, comes to help.
Vijayalakshmi cooks dinner for us 5-6 days per week, and speaks workable English. Her food is excellent, local South Indian veg cuisine, a variety of curries and dals and soups. Every now and then they make chapatis, as shown below.
