About Rajiv Immanuel
Dickens, Hardy, Hopkins, Chaucer, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Shakespeare, Milton, Maugham, Emerson... you name it - we had it. Works by such authors lined our bookshelves at home in India. Our wealth was mostly in our heads. This was the type of home I was born into in 1965. Apart from being Christians, another way in which we were different from people around us was that we spoke English at home. In the India of those days that was unusual. After a degree in Economics in 1982, I added an MBA in 1985. I worked for a while as a Civil Servant in India. I soon got bored with pushing files. In 1995 I arrived at Reading University, UK, to study for a Postgraduate degree in Economics. The scholarship I came on is listed in my Complete Guide book. I learnt a lot about UK university life. As the years passed in the UK, we, my wife and I, found that our roots in the UK had become too strong to consider going back. Both our children were born here in the UK. We realised how much we loved this country and with the Home Office's co-operation decided to make the UK our home. Meanwhile, I had found my metier in life: to be a writer. Since then I have been a professional observer of life in the UK. While I have a great regard for this land, I am also aware that like any country there are problems here too. I am an INFP. It is one of 16 personality types derived from the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). Those who belong to this personality type get a great deal of satisfaction from helping others grow and develop. My life's mission is to write books that help other migrants after me understand this country, make the most of opportunities here, contribute to UK society, and avoid nasty surprises. In short: to prepare new migrants for UK life. In my books I have put my nearly two decades of living in this country at your service. I hope you find my books helpful and the information and practical advice useful. Best wishes for your UK life!"
