“It has been 70 years now since this shop has been here. My grandfather, my father, and now myself, all have been here. Since 1989 I have been taking care of the business. Today is an off day for my workers so they are not here, so I am taking care of the work.”

He lives in Bangalore with his family, his parents wife and kids. he owns a family business in Chikpet, they deal with waste paper and recycle this into a usable form.

“I have been fasting since I was 7 years old. For as long as I remember we have been observing Ramzaan. All my family is here. We have a big family of 18 members. Since I was a child, we all have been together. Even today during Ramzaan every Sunday all family members go to my sisters place, to celebrate. I really want to go to Mecca with my family, but right now we do not have the sufficient funds for that purpose. Inshallah! We will go there someday.”
