Last week I read in The New York Times a news article about a successful online forum operator. He is a 26 years old American entrepreneur. He works from home and earns $10,000+ a month. That article made me think of Vikram.

I looked at her kids and then told Urmila, "Einstein and Marie Curie are cute." Urmila smiled broadly and said, "He is Chandan and she is Charu." I said, "Well, if you want you can rename them as Einstein and Marie."
I was traveling in a bus from Hamilton to Wellington in New Zealand. An Indian in his late twenties was sitting next to me. He was restless, looked tired and avoided eye-contact. As I had to travel with him for 6 hours, I decided to break the silence.

I want to do some Internet business. I would like to have a good business idea. Can you help me?" Mohana asked me. She is a middle aged housewife living in a small town with a population of half a million.

Laxmi is a housewife. Her brother Laxman is a student. Their father Arjun is a retired bank clerk. They met me a few months ago. "We have read your articles and book.
