Conventions Used in This Book

The following conventions are used throughout the book to make things consistent and easy to understand:

All Web addresses appear in monofont. Please note that at times a Web address may be long and may break over two lines. If this occurs, make sure to type the address in your Web browser exactly as it appears in the book without including extra spaces at the end of a line.
New terms and Indian words appear in italics and are closely followed by an easy-to-understand definition.
Bold text is used to highlight the important concepts of bulleted lists and the action steps of numbered lists.
When I refer to Indian money, I use abbreviations. Rupees is abbreviated Rs, and it’s always placed as before the numbers. For example, 700 rupees reads as Rs 700. For more about money, see Chapter 9.
In this book you come across the terms West (a location) and Westerner (a person). I use the term Westerner as a more polite alternative for the word foreigner, which can carry negative connotations. My aim is surely not to offend anyone! The terms West and Westerner apply to anyone who’s non-Indian (Americans, Easterners, Asians, and so on). I think of a Westerner as someone who’s not of Indian origin, who lives and/or works in or with India.
