From the Paper:

"I am currently working on a proposal for a multi-million dollar project in Cognizant Technology Solutions, our first attempt was a failure and part of the project has already been taken away by the competing firm. For the last year and a half, I worked as a technologist for Cognizant Technology Solutions but I was always interested to know what is driving the business. I have always been interested in how business decisions are made and how returns on investments (ROI) are derived for every business venture. My curiosity and interests as well as my analytical skills made me the best person in the project not only in the eyes of the senior management but also with my co-workers and my juniors. I was soon promoted and sent to the United States to work on a new project whose success mattered the most to the senior management. Though it was initially a challenge to run a new project worth of millions of dollars in revenue, I was able to overcome my apprehensions and got into the swing of things within a few weeks."
