Sarabjeet Garcha grew up in the scenic, riverside neighbourhood of Panchvati in Nasik, a temple city in the southwestern Indian state of Maharashtra. An electronics engineer by education, Sarabjeet has from his teens been irredeemably influenced by the spiritually, mystically, and literarily inclined. He writes in English and Hindi and translates either way from Hindi and English, as well as from Marathi and Punjabi into English and Hindi. His first book of poems, The Half-Moon Halo, was published in 2004. Sarabjeet’s first book of Hindi verse, Vaani Phir Bhi Shoonyamanaa ( वाणी फिर भी शून्यमना ) (Even Then Voice Is Tranquil Hearted), was published in late 2011.
