From the author:I have grown up in India and traveled most of my childhood thanks to my father's postings in the military.I owe my upbringing to my mother, a teacher.I am married to an artist, Aparajita Jain, for whose unwavering love and support I am eternally grateful.
I am a Management Consultant by profession,and a philosopher by passion. I employ Socrates' mode of discovery and Spinoza's thought of Divine extension in everything in nature. I enjoy reading literature that evokes logical reasoning and a similar scientific approach can be sensed in my writing. However, I am not a philosophy historian, which most students of philosophy end up becoming. I quote great philosophers to present them to the readers but I do not use their conclusions to validate my proposed thought.
I believe in continuous evolution of thought and spirituality. I would like my readers to focus their attentions more on the process of reasoning that I apply in my writing and less on the outcome.My work would be deemed successful if it guides the reader towards self realization of answers to his doubts. The answer may conform with my conclusions or may not. I am comfortable and pleased with either result.
I strive to make topics of philosophy and spirituality more accessible to common people. The answers lie right here, within the eco-system that we live in. It does not require extraordinary efforts to seek them, but a disciplined and well guided method of reasoning.

These are well-chosen essays for the author's intended audience and for those of us who desire knowledge and understanding in the midst of today's world events. If I were the author, I should like to be a "mouse in the corner" listening to the youth club engage in my work with their debates. I, as the reader, would also like to hear their thoughts on these most timely matters facing all of us today, which the author has thoughtfully written and generously provided in this book. You'll also discover threads of his enlightenment that will stretch your mind and enrich your life. My many thanks go out to Raunak Mahajan for contributing to the world rather than detracting from it. Well done!
