Dr. K. S. Sebastian lives in Delhi with his family of three school going children and wife Neena. He holds a Master degree in social work and a PhD degree in Public Health from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He worked in the development sector for more than two decades in varying capacities, ranging from a grass roots level community worker to Director of an international foundation. His work took him to various parts of the world and provided opportunity to work closely with key players in the sector, across the planet. As researcher, program planner, implementer, and evaluator of social and economic development programs, he got an opportunity to understand the inside out of development work, but was disenchanted with the sector and decided to quit the job to take up writing and freelance consulting.
