About Me- My Profile

My name ‘Jainesh’ means ‘The Victorious King’ or so I was told. Although it seems like such a typically Gujarati name, most of the people who think I am a Gujarati are…

…absolutely correct.

I am a Gujju by birth because I was born in a Gujju family. I have lived and was brought up in Bombay and ever since I was born my life has been full of drama.

The day I was born was also very dramatic since my mother was expecting a girl and I popped out with a little thingy attached to my body. She was surely disappointed. But you know who was the most disappointed? Me… You would be too, if you had to wear frocks and girly clothes for the first two years of your life. Ewwwk!

Speaking of drama, well, I guess drama is something that I have lived with for many years now.

I am married, you see.

Also, the fact that I have been a writer for more than 12 years, writing dramatic stories and screenplays for television, movies and plays in India, makes my life all the more interesting.

With all this experience of writing women centric stories, I think I know how to tackle that eternal question of ‘what women think’. Most of the times, I have the upper hand in arguments with my wife. She always agrees with me in the end when I say, ‘You’re right, honey.’ So there!

Anyway, let’s get to the real answers to the queries that might enter your wise head about what I have done for the last 11 years of my life.
