Sunitha, employee in a company that provides software services, quit her work in October because commuting from home in Vijaynagar to Whitefield every day has left her with no time for her family.
She said, “I have put in my papers. I am lucky to have found a job closer to my home.”
After clocking the mandatory nine-and-half hours each day, she would reach home at 10 p.m. every day by which time her husband, working in an IT company in shifts, would have already left for work. She said, “We never got time for each other. It was only work, no life.”
Arpita, software professional who travelled from Richmond Circle for four hours each day to and from her workplace in Whitefield, resigned from her job because her commuting time only increased over the two years she worked there. “I loved my job. But the commuting wasn’t worth it.”
