About Surya Yadav's family
I come from service background. Within family I am the first to be in IT industry. Iâ€™ve got a beautiful daughter and lovely wife to keep me company. And we are guided by my folks.
Some good online resources are professionaltester.com, softwaremag.com. One could pick a copy of Software Testing by ron patton for starters and gradually move towards quality assurance books. Works of William Edwards Deming and Joseph m. juran would be of immense help.
Degrees that Matter
ISEB for sure helps in strengthening basics. QAI global institute based out of Orlando, Florida offers various certifications in Software Testing and Software Quality Assurance which are highly recommendable.

Patience & Diplomacy are a must in QA & Testing field.The nature of the work is such that, it requires you to probe and find short comings in other peoples work or show them the better way of doing it without offending anyone.

Get your basics right and build strong foundation in your area of expertise. Learn and evolve on continuous basis. This will help you to scale up professionally as the years go by.
Areas for the Future
The greener pastures would be in the areas of mobile apps(we are already witnessing this), cloud testing cos most organizations are working towards reducing their spends on operations and support, DWH/BI spends are going up too, so db/etl testing skills would be in high demand
