This is just a suggestion and it is valid only if it suits your plans.
There are two Schools near and about the place of work, just a walking distance from your work. They are also on the major Bus routes. But the area where the schools are located is old and the rentals are far a few. So, a scrutiny will be well worth your trouble. Also, since you say you want to finalize your rental, I am sure you are close by and you will be checking up all of the requirements associated with the Apartment rental project.
Most of these places they might rent with your first and the last month payment and without a lease. Please check with the rental agency.
Just in the passing I noted that there are a lot of Guptas, Kumars, Nairs and a couple of Naidoos thrown in the mele and I also noted a Murali who was a pirate with an "I" missing. (EYE missing! just a joke.) Also there are TWO Shetty's No 'Z' and my whole clan is living there 47 of them.
