Objective of the book was never to make money. It was to help business leaders prepare for competing in today’s world.

Why choose a charity focused on education?

I spent half my life in US and half in India. Grew up in India with humble beginnings. Have seen the positive impact education can have on lifting not just an individual but a family, neighborhood, city, or an entire society. Children born into poverty have little control over the social situation they have to life with the rest of their lives. A gift of education and the continued support system provided by a solid non-profit is what they need to get a head start in life.
