Arvind is British of Indian extraction. He lives and works in Brussels. He has three children, two of whom are at university in England. Arvind spent his formative years in London and remains fascinated by the energy of the city. Arvind attributes his interest in reading to two books: The Picture of Dorian Gray and Thérèse Raquin. He is fascinated by the co-existence of good and evil and the loss of innocence.
Arvind has also lived and worked in Paris. Both London and Paris have played a role in his aspiring to write as they have stirred emotions that he has sought to express even in his first book, Emma's Equilibrium. Arvind loves languages and can speak Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, French, Spanish, Dutch and Italian. He does some amateur riding and enjoys the exciting bond between man and horse.
Arvind recently suffered a stroke. He finished his book as part of his recovery. He believes that while writing can be challenging and frustrating, it can also be therapeutic and gratifying.
Arvind is a strong believer in hope in the face of adversity and has instilled Emma's character with this strength.
