Selling coffee, tea, badam milk and butter milk on his mobile cafe named Shankar’s Cartoonist Coffee, Shankar earns a living while giving form to his hobby, cartooning. Shankar’s day starts at 3am ending only at 8pm. “My morning dose of filter coffee is sold between 5am and 7pm near Banashankari BDA complex” says Shankar, who supplies 200 to 250 cups of beverages per day.

“Mathe banni, naanu Shankar… nimgoskara kayuthiruve…”
