Mohamad Ahmad Qureshi grew up in Pithapuram, Andhra Pradesh in India. His father was a shopkeeper, and his mother was a homemaker with three other siblings Mohamad led a life with daily financial strain. Despite this Mohamad was committed to his studies and achieved first place in the technical project expo at his university.
