Manish Jani was born and brought up in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. After graduating as a Computer Engineer, he worked in Mumbai, Barbados and then San Francisco, for several years. He currently heads the Indian operations of a multi-national software product company and lives in Ahmedabad with his wife and two sons. Although Manish identifies as a conservative family man, he strongly believes that freedom is an essential part of everyone’s life. He believes that just like our laws protect the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion, they should also protect the freedom of choosing a life partner of either sex. Also, just like our laws prohibit discrimination based on religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth, they should prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation. Manish respects everyone’s natural inclination to discover their own sexuality and to choose a suitable partner and lifestyle. With that thought, he makes no attempt to promote or encourage either homosexuality or heterosexuality in his literature.
