About the Author
Ravi Bedi did Chemical Engineering from Banaras Hindu University (1962), and joined the Indian Air Force more for the lure of its blue uniform than any patriotic fervor. But his heart was in the creative world, composing music being his first love. To quench his creative thirst, he became a self-taught painter with moderate success and, when his basement started filling up with all the trash (read paintings), he decided to become a writer. With his first novel, "Lovers' Rock" (published by Rupa Publications - 2014), he has earned a pass to join the club. Ravi Bedi loves his golf, enjoys his music, runs a hotel in town to put meat on the table, and lives with his wife in Jodhpur, India.
