About The Author:- Arun Kumar Jain was born on 17th Oct. 1951. His ancestors belonged to the village of Binauli, Barauth in Western U.P., India. Hailing from a Jain family, he was given the knowledge of Jainism as legacy. After passing from Jain School, Darya Ganj, he entered Delhi College of Engineering, something that opened new vistas for him, with friends who came from all walks of life and indirectly persuaded him for introspection of his own values. The more he introspected and analyzed, the more fervent he became in his practices and stand he now enlightened. This lit up a desire to spread words about philosophy of Jainism. However, the entanglements of life prevented him for so long to accomplish his desire but now. He is well known in his political and social circle for his writings which are crisp, clear, and direct.
