I was born and brought up in the southern part of India. After graduating from the Karnatak University there, I worked as a teacher in a High School for over 4 years, and then joined the Government of India as a revenue officer. Retiring in 1994, I practised as a tax consultant for about 4 years. I gave up the practice, to devote myself to religious studies. WHY DO I BELIEVE IN ISLAM is my first published book - published in print through lulu.com. 10 of my books are now available on Amazon Kindle.
