The Book

Rubies in my Ears, is an inspirational story of a life filled with pain, loss, adventure, fun, love and eventual success. After majoring in Political Science, from St Xavier’s College, Calcutta, but with no plans for the future, a chance meeting with a family friend takes Sanjiv to Tehran, Iran, with a promise of a glorious job and a glamorous life. Thus begins a journey of many twists and turns, and of life transforming experiences.

“The boy from Ranchi has come a long way. Son of a traditional Indian family, Sanjiv became a nomad at first cry. Staying all over the world in his endeavour to find his comfort zone, Sanjiv has written about his life experiences with utmost honesty. Sometimes embarrassing, sometimes momentous, sometimes painful, his journey has been a walk in search of his divinity. We studied together and reconnected after a gap of some thirty years. In between, Sanjiv had moved house to live in New Zealand and travel the globe. This book has been written in front of me, as his latest endeavour, near the waves of a beach in Goa. It’s a must read to understand the makeup of the moving Indian. Indeed, the boy from Ranchi has come a long way!”
