Featured Interview With Arwinder Kaur
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I came to Canada as an immigrant from India at age 4 in 1962. Our family was often the only minority in the class or school. As teenager I travelled to the UK and India for 2 years. I lived in the lower mainland in BC most of my life. I attended SFU and had a career as a social worker. I love tennis and art. I love my genius dog Monty.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
As a teenager I preferred reading and learning more than playing with dolls. I always had a curious mind and sought mentors in my life. I have been able to express myself when I am passionate about an issue or cause. I started a collection of maxims and eventually added an autobiography as well.

Tell us a little about your latest book?
How do we as humans navigate our lives in the complex world we have created? With the high speed in which we are bombarded with images, messages and conflicting ideas, how do we figure out how to live in the world without destroying it and ourselves? Why are we the only species that seems to be struggling to live truly healthy lives?
Masses of us are suffering with feelings of loneliness and emptiness, killing ourselves and each other despite our sense of superiority over all other species. What makes us live the way we do? How do we live better lives with a deeper connection to ourselves, others and the Earth? The answers are not locked away in a secret vault. In fact, they are much closer and simpler than you might realize, but need to know.
