With her strong academic background combined with a sound experience in Content Development, she proved to be an asset for this book. She is an avid book lover, passionate about writing and insatiable when it comes to doing research. But most importantly, a mother of a 5-year-old son, trying to inculcate the true values of life for his right upbringing – this is what primarily connected her with this venture. The completion of this book wouldn’t have been possible without her. I thank her immensely and wholeheartedly for her unconditional support that made this journey so worthwhile and successful.
