Author was born in India but now made New Zealand his home. He studied Classical Sanskrit language at graduate and post-graduate levels in India. He over time developed interest in Indian philosophy, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. Impressed by the comprehensive and intuitive definition of Avidya (ignorance) of the Yoga Sutras of Sage Patanjali, he earlier published the book Yoga: An Analytical Release. Yoga being a Vedic philosophy, he got passionate about the Vedas. He has attempted to provide a translation that is holistic and makes sense to the lay person. The Sama Veda being the smallest among the Vedas naturally happened to his first aim. Yoga and the Vedas remain his constant passion, but not profession. He helps spread the message in the community through talks, personal guidance and example. He finds NZ scenic setting conducive and agreeable to his peace-loving mind.
