Born in 1951 in Rangoon (now Yangon), Burma, Eugene Lawrence's father was Indian, who had arrived in Burma with the Indian National Army during World War II, and married his mother, a Karen. The family repatriated to India at the end of 1966, sailing on one of the last ships to Madras sent by India to receive Indian refugees. Concluding his higher studies in Bangalore, India, with BA (Hons.) in English Literature, Lawrence relinquished his desire to teach and embraced a more lucrative career that was necessary in order to support his large family. Working in sales and marketing with an Indian company and the financial services division of an MNC based in the United Arab Emirates for 27 years, he devoted 16 years to rural development, advocacy and resource development notably with Pipal Tree, producing three consecutive e-publications on climate change issues on his return to India. However, he has kept alive his passion for literature, philosophy, history, religion, and music, and has published short stories, and articles in the Deccan Herald. This is his first full-length book.
