From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Jagdish Rai Singh (born 29 June 1953), affectionately known as Roy,[citation needed] is a Guyanese novelist, essayist and short story writer. He is best known for the use of clear and concise language on a wide range of topics, ranging from religious, social, political and economic issues. His book Earthly Tribulations was described as a “thought-provoking, no-nonsense, and intelligent book that can either start an argument or settle one.”[by whom?]

Early life[edit]

Born in the town of Blenheim on the island of Leguan, Guyana, Roy is the eldest of four children of Pranpatie Salikram and Inderjeet Singh. During infancy his parents moved with him from Leguan to live in an area called Kitty Village in the city of Georgetown.

As a child, Roy enjoyed going with his grandparents to attend political meetings, as well as Christian and Hindu places of worship. It was from listening to politicians and preachers that he developed an interest in history, religion and politics.

In 1977, Roy immigrated to Canada, where he married Guyanese-born Rita Boodram; they have two children Nicole and Ryan. Later, he graduated and worked in the field of Electronics for a number of years.

In 1989, Roy became interested in philosophy and ancient mythology after reading about Socrates, Aristotle and Plato. In the years to follow, he became engrossed in learning about the origins and development of religion. To broaden his knowledge, he read books on Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism.

In 2001, Roy's first book, entitled The True Self, was released. It was a unique blend of fiction, mysticism and spiritual beliefs. His books include Pandora’s Heartaches, Adventures of the Homeless, Strange Misfortunes, Days of Laughter, and Earthly Tribulations. In addition to this, Roy also wrote a number of feature length and short screenplays.
