Ankit Jain, an international student at Florida Institute of Technology, and a graduate student majoring in Computer Information Systems, is a philosopher at heart.  In this inspirational interview, Ankit shares quotes in his native language, Hindi, and shares his own favorite quote from Mother Teresa. While Ankit understands (obviously) the importance of computers in our personal lives, he also believes we've allowed ourselves to move away from the reality of our lives and into a virtual world, which, unfortunately, takes us away from engaging with members of our own family.
