You Can Memorialize Your Facebook Profile I was on Facebook today and saw a birthday reminder for a friend who passed away a few years ago. I was thinking to myself, there must be a way for us to let Facebook know that this person has passed away. So I started doing some research and […]

The intent of this book is to wake you up out of your apathy. It is to assist you in shaping new choices, new directions, and new actions. And the Indian American community certainly needs to address this—to view money as a means toward an end rather than an end in itself. They need to define their goal and plan for it, and this book helps you do that with succinct concepts and case studies to open your mind.
