India is one of the most diverse countries across the globe and its diversity can be prominently observed in its culinary traditions. One of the most prominent foods in India is biryani. Biryani is an authentic Indian recipe, with aromatic mouthwatering, luscious chicken in fluffy rice and scented spices. Biryani has become the new fast food because of cloud-based kitchens. The study from FICCI-PwC (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry-PricewaterhouseCoopers) has linked the structured biryani industry to have an economy of about 25 billion rupees. Few of the major contributors to this industry are Hyderabad's Paradise, Behrouz Biryani, Biryani Blues and Biryani Kilo among others.

So this particular blog is for the people who haven't visited Singapore and do not know much about the place.

Singapore is an island country separated from country Malaysia till 1965. It was just another city like Kuala Lumpur. It gained independence in 1965 from Malaysia. It celebrated its 50th anniversary recently in 2015.

Malaysia is a home-like neighboring country where people often visit and vice versa.

Because of these regulations, the eastern market of the automotive industry leaped along with the boom of Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) by the end of a decade in 1990 and in 2000 the western industry was in a huge threat due to the various causes of emissions regulations and labor unions. The years 2009-2011 saw the fall of U.S. automotive industry at its lowest. This fall of industry in the western part posed a threat to the economy of developed financial countries of the west. The threat now forced the industry to revolve around fossil fuels on a new better, viable, and cleaner fuel along with automated plants to remove both roadblocks of the industry.

Nelly Cheboi is a remarkable person I met while attending StartupWorldCup 2019 at 1871. 1871 is a startup incubator in Chicago that hosts free events that all Illinois Tech students have access to. Cheboi stood out to me from the first time I met her, since it was very rare that I found a woman in backend software development that was passionate about it outside of work. The more I talked to her, I realized her passions were deeper than just software development, she’s a key player in increasing technology accessibility and education in Kenya. I’m going to spend the next few issues covering her story and her non-profit, TechLit Africa (https://techlitafrica.org). This first part introduces her backstory which is essential in establishing what this venture means to her.

While many stories (including many of the ones featured in this column) focus on the frontlines and battlefields of conflict and the tales of heroism and triumph that occur on them, this week’s Hidden History looks at another, equally important wartime setting: the quiet office of a mathematician.
