What a patience

You have to remember that I have a day job. Mostly it meant waking up an hour early in the morning and writing - every day, day after day; and sometimes, I wrote at night as well. First draft, second draft and so on until the ninth draft. Some people then said it doesn't work. Back to the drawing board, a complete re-write, first draft, second draft and so on upto sixth draft. Then it worked!

And all these steps are slow, without hope of success in sight, and yes not funny at all. I must thank all those people who helped read various versions and took me through to the end.
