The techie, Roopesh Kumar Verma, who originally hails from Rajasthan's Pilani ditch vehicle and chose to ride a white horse to his office in the Embassy Golf Links campus on Intermediate Ring Road in complete formals.

A placard was also hanged to the horse that read, 'last working day as a software engineer.' Apparently, however, it took him a ridiculous seven hours to reach his office – he left from his residence at 7 am, according to Deccan Herald, and reached the office at 2 pm.

“I am from a middle-class family. This kind of social media attention is hard to digest. I never expected this,” he said talking to News18.

“I have been staying in Bengaluru for the past eight years and I am fed up with the bottlenecks and air pollution. Bengaluru is overcrowded and too many vehicles on the road lead to traffic jams every day. In fact, I learnt horse riding because of a traffic headache,” he said.

Verma has been working as in Bengaluru for last eight years and wanted to launch his own start-up soon. Well, his idea has made him a mini-internet sensation since his video and picture went viral on the social media.
