Then when do you get any sleep?
12am-3am isn't a fixed time. It can vary depending on the workload. Sometimes i sleep at 2am and wake up at 9am (7hrs sleep).

Location - Chandigarh
Industry - IT
Distance - 7 Kms while going to office, 8 Kms while going to home
Time taken - Max 15 mins each side irrespective of the time of the day, no chock-a-blok traffic, no endless waits at the red light.
Hell yes I can go home for lunch also If i want to

compare this to when I was in NCR and had to commute 28 Kms one way from Faridabad to Noida - we used to leave home at 9:30, reach at 10:45 after dropping wifey to work, started off at 7:30 PM picked wifey on the way back and were home by 9:00 - 9:30 PM...dead tired

Tea Industry
Distance to office : 10km

leave home 9.15/9.30 am, takes about 20-25 mins to reach work
leave office around 7.15/7.30 pm, takes 30mins to get back

During Dec, Jan & Feb (lean months due to reduced tea production)
we leave an hour earlier

The best part about the driv eto work is the 2.5 odd km stretch of low traffic road where i can touch 100 everyday
it includes a flyover, and then on Strand Road, alongside the Hoogly river.
and ends at Eden Gardens.
