As I sit here waiting on Rama to arrive from Cochin Airport after his flight in from Bangalore, I find myself thinking back on the time leading up to this point. The point where I find myself in sultry, humid Cochin. Of all the things and events that come to mind, one stands clear and tall.

Outstandingly so.

That is the very strong and silent support from my better half, Priti. Not one moment of hesitation, anxiety or fear over the adventure I undertook. She has been my strength in all the preparations and planning. I need to; I want to take this opportunity to appreciate that support, that confidence, that belief. All of which mean a lot.

Thank you, Priti.
