Ranjit Singh is a father, husband, Indian immigrant, and naturalized citizen of the United States. An irredeemable nerd and polyglot with varied interests, Singh has wandered around and lived in a dozen cities. When not spending time with family, he likes to catch up on reading and occasionally write.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in India, a vast, ridiculously diverse country that visitors find staggering. My personal, social, and political outlooks were all shaped by that experience. India today is very different from what it was when I was growing up. It was not the economic powerhouse that it is today. There was tremendous corruption, poverty, and evil there; however, all those negative things were buried under a huge mountain of humanity, charitableness, love, and compassion. My writing is influenced by what I saw growing up, starkly contrasted against what I see in the prosperous first-world country that I live in now.
When did you first start writing?
Indian parents generally encourage their children to get into no-nonsense careers. There is no such thing as, "you can be whatever you want to be." I never even knew I had writing skills in me until I was well-established in my career, and started dabbling in writing as a hobby.
Written by two authors with vastly different backgrounds - Ranjit Singh, an Indian immigrant and Greg Camp, a college professor, "Each One, Teach One" addresses a topic not discussed in depth, namely, the long-term threat to the Second Amendment arising from ignorance.
