Beji was born in the Indian state of Rajasthan into an ordinary middle class family hailing from Kerala, another state from southern India. Her perceptions and sensitivities retain the effect of her upbringing and also reveal impressions of varying cultures, religions, languages and experiences while growing up. Always on the move, she never really settled in any place. However, places and people seem to tug to her soul. Her love and special bondage with children drove her to become a pediatrician. She lives with her husband Jaison, son Joel and daughter Catherine in the western state of Gujarat, India.
