Pavansut, the hindu God also known as Hanuman, is the best representation of pure devotion, complete surrender and absence of ego - all qualities to strive for in life. As a biotechnology leader I continue to devote my life to helping find cures for difficult diseases like cancer.
I am as much a fan of technology as the next person. However, all these wires emanating from all the various gadgets have always bothered me much.
