I have led a pretty eventful life!
Sometimes you don’t rediscover the details of your life until you start writing them down.
For example, I recently remembered my former years sailing on the seas – which sounds idyllic, but in reality, especially for a child, was terrifying. I thought I was going to die on almost all of my vacations!
I’ll summarise some highlights:
Competed in yacht racing (including overnight – that’s in the dark!)
Won the National University Games Volleyball title (Australia)
Worked on a government-funded International Film Festival
I spent 22 years either travelling, working or living in India
Migrated to a new country
I started a new career at the age of 46
Became a Writer and then an Author
After completing a Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) in Public Health & Health Promotion, I spent 20+ years working in a range of domains, including medical education, international tertiary training, property and real estate, to name a few.
I have been fortunate to have travelled for pleasure and work in Australia, India, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the UK, Cyprus and Greece.
In the past few years, I became an Author and writer, as well as co-founded a startup in India. With a co-founder, I started the men's platform www.menpsyche.com and will soon launch the women's version - www.womenpsyche.com
But I am most proud of being a survivor, overcoming multiple significant personal adversities in my life, and somehow retaining my“Jen-ness” (including surviving the demands of a Dalmatian and a Greyhound, who turned the house into a climate-controlled dog kennel!).
That’s more than enough about me! This blog is NOT about me – It's about India…
About 'Luxury in India'
On any given day, you can hear me extolling the virtues of India as I go about my daily life here. After being associated with the country for over two decades, I feel at home, like I always belonged...
Welcome to Luxury in India!
To me, the word 'luxury' doesn't necessarily mean expensive...
"Living in India, I am surrounded by young start-ups; I'm 30 minutes from a 16th-century fort, and there are rare wild tigers a few hours away - this is a unique 'Luxury' to me!"
There is richness in India, and I am lucky to experience it every day.
Of the many stories to be told in India, mine is just one more. But I hope my unique perspective provides a new outlook on this beautiful country.
