I would like to thank my mom for always being there and giving me lessons in honesty and being truthful that have helped me at every stage of my career.

I would also like to thank my wife, Ashwini, who has supported me at every step in life, bringing all the charm to my life. She has had the patience to allow me to take some personal time away to work on this book, pursue challenging projects, and travel like crazy, which have resulted in the many experiences mentioned in the book. Big thanks also go to the rest of my family, friends, coworkers, and peers in the industry for their input and inspiration.
