House staff

We have been blessed with wonderful staff to help us in our household here at IISc. 

Our family with our IISc apartment staff: Venkatama, Vijayalakshmi, and Geetha.

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.
