Jaya Obhan


Being born into a simple, middle-class Indian family, Jaya Obhan graduated in French Literature from Mumbai University. Literature, books and a good read always attracted her. But, in spite of that, she got an opportunity to explore an extensive range of career options. She started her career with Tata Teleservices as a Customer Care Executive and after spending a few years there, she got promoted to the management level. After that she joined Reliance Infocomm and worked as a Relationship Manager for a year. She chose to quit the job as she was looking forward to enjoying motherhood. After a five-year break, she joined the Indian Language School, Nigeria, as an English teacher. This was the most elevating experience of her life, post which she became a trainer, counsellor and now an author.
