Neil Mody is a media entrepreneur, tech enthusiast and philosopher at heart.
 
In this open-hearted conversation, Neil shares snippets of his phone conversations with his father that would forever be seared into his mind. What did his father say? Why did Neil tell his mother not to wear a “sari” to his eighth grade graduation?  Why did he feel embarrassed by his “Indianness” growing up in New Jersey,  and how does he feel now?
