At 12.30 pm there are about four people there. More people I am told log in at around 11 am and then in the evenings. Apart from students, quite a few doctors come in to use the facilities as there are a couple of hospitals and clinics in the vicinity.
Major Rishikesh Vakula, 28, comes to check his mail and surf almost every day. "The place gets crowded around 6.30 pm. I don’t like to wait so I leave if I don’t get a PC immediately," he says.
"I see a lot of foreigners here. For instance there was a couple here a little while ago who spoke a language I couldn’t understand. It certainly wasn’t an Indian language."
Sherley Fernandes, 38, is also one of the few logged in today. "I don’t know much about the Internet. I only come here to chat with my husband who is in China."
She’s been coming here thrice a week for the past nine months. "It’s a mixed crowd," she says. "I don’t see too many students here."
Sixteen-year-old Vijay is here to play games. "That is what all my friends do too. During the vacations we come as often as we can. But when school starts it will only be once a week."
