I owe many individuals great debts for the role they have played in my life. Some of them were teachers, some were friends, and others were colleagues. All of them are gratefully, and humbly, acknowledged - only some of them are listed below.

Sri Rama Chandra Hota, Teacher of Geography and Mathematics, Burla High School for teaching me the mathematics of Physical Geography and the geography of Mathematics, for capturing my imagination by teaching me the why of maths rather than the how, for telling me that there always is another way of solving a problem, for Shiva's damru and the conic sections, for getting down on his knees in a dusty courtyard to teach me how to approximately trisect an angle with a piece of string and three sticks.

Sri Bala Mukunda Panda
, Burla High School, for teaching me Sanskrit at my father's request, since it was not a subject I was required to learn at school, so I could savour the Panchatantra and the Bhagavad Gita in Sanskrit.

Prof.Ananth Selvarajan
, IISc Bangalore, for believing I would, telling me I should and setting me free so I could.

, IIT Bombay (now in DAIICT), for the last 15 minutes of the single tutorial that changed my teaching career after I had joined IIT Delhi.

Prof. George G Guekos
, of the ETH Zurich, for never letting me think anything else except that I had it in me.

Prof.Yang Tianli
(Bing Lao She) of the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, for showing me the world of Mozart and Bach, and for letting me speak so that I could teach myself to listen. Ni hau, Bing Lao She, Pancake-Master, Piano-player.
