Quotes

Micah Bowers, Bluefire's CEO and Readium Foundation Board Member, noted that "The open standard EPUB format is beginning to evolve beyond the trade ebook market and is now being used in professional, education, and enterprise scenarios where desktop computers continue to play an important role.

Her all-time favourite film is ‘Casablanca’, the 1942 American romance by Michael Curtiz. She has watched the Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ 10 times. "
