The success of my first booklet, Meeting the Master, has encouraged me to continue writing, as it seems that many people are interested in my stories about the time I spent with Osho. ‘Meeting the Master’ was, as it says, a short account of how I came to meet Osho in 1971, before the world knew about him, and the change of direction that my life took as a result.

I have just finished a second book, A Seam for the Master, much longer this time, about the 12 years I spent as his tailor and hat-maker.

Being quite good with the English language, and having done a lot of teaching and editing through the years, I am offering my skills to anyone who needs to get something out to the public or prospective clients in good English e.g. a website, a brochure, an article or a book.

Those who know me might remember that I was one of Osho’s first editors and was involved in the publication of his books for 5 years in the early Poona days.

After Osho left his body I got some more qualifications and taught English as a foreign language for 13 years, specialising in the Cambridge Certificate Examinations.

I took some editing and proofreading courses to further hone my skills.

I am a writer myself. Beside being the author of the above books, I wrote numerous articles for the ‘Osho in UK’ website, for ‘Viha Connection’ and various other sannyasin publications.

Punya and a young Chinese friend, Yujie Zhao, both experienced translators, are working with me to offer translating services in English, Italian, French, German and Chinese.
