Ravi Bedi honestly believes he could have done better in life in the field of music, but he became a Chemical Engineer by default and joined the Air Force more for the lure of the blue uniform than any patriotic fervor. There was nothing chemical about it. His heart was in the creative world.
To quench his artistic thirst, he became a self-taught painter and, once in a long while, earned some pocket money, which allowed him to buy a bottle or two of scotch. After dumping all his paintings in his basement, he decided to try his hand at writing, even though he learned more abuses in school than English prose! With his first book, “Lovers’ Rock”, (thanks to Rupa) he has earned a pass to join the party.
Ravi Bedi runs a hotel in town to put meat on the table--just in case he runs out of the ‘royalty’. He lives with his wife of 50 years in Jodhpur, and enjoys his golf.
Congratulations on having your book in print, Ravi, and for participating in this Fast Forward author interview. Can you please tell us where the idea for Lovers’ Rock came from?
