Paresh M Jivanji was born in a small hamlet in the East Coast of Tanzania. Born to devout parents, a sense of spirituality, was ever deeply rooted in him. Faced by a series of long-standing challenges, he struggled through his childhood. This led him to find solace and inner peace through the study of scriptures and several books on religion. He was soon drawn to the path of Self-inquiry, by a deep spiritual unrest.
"Being Versus Becoming" is his debut book. A writer, poet, artist and nature-lover at heart, the author is passionate about painting. He is an artist par excellence, with several paintings to his credit. Paresh M Jivanji lives in the United Kingdom.
