Thank you for your compliment (about the name). Its quite sad though that
the word Shiv does not exist in the Indian-English lexicon. So people just
think of the God and not of a knife!

I do have some ideas and heuristics in mind. I wanted to give out a small
hello to the community for now. I will write up my ideas/approach properly,
go through a round of feedback and then share it with the community of
course. (Just that I have my final examinations going on now..so I need to
wait for the weekend).

I will be trying to talk to Greg as well apart from my mentors.
Regards,
Shiv
