“Souls render service to one another”

(Tattvārtha Sūtra 5.21)

Hi there! My name is Anvesh. I’m a writer. A chai enthusiast. A cricket lover (the sport, not the bug). Welcome to my website.

Currently, I’m a student at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law. I’m a graduate of the University of Toronto, and I’m proud to call Calgary, Alberta my home. I’ve worked for a Government Relations firm, a Member of Parliament, and with the NATO Association of Canada. In 2019, I first proposed my “Three Bangles Theory” of Indian grand strategy. In 2020, due to COVID-19, I went local and interned at the Lougheed House, a national and provincial heritage site in downtown Calgary.

I’m an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America and care deeply about service to my community and faith advocacy. I’m a citizen of Canada and hold an Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI), entitling me to live and work in the country of my birth. I hope to develop my legal practice and actively contribute to Canadian intellectual and civic life, while also honouring my Indic roots.

Anvesh’s Publications

As a keen analyst of foreign affairs, I’ve written for the NATO Association of Canada, the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, the Columbia SIPA Journal of International Affairs, the Stimson Center, The Hill Times, and the Mackenzie Institute, among others.

Anvesh’s Poetry

My debut collection, Pilgrim to No Country, is available now through Frontenac House Press. My poetry has been published by the Literary Review of Canada, The Hiram Poetry Review, The Bombay Review, and New Contrast. I’m a former editor with the Hart House Review literary magazine.

Anvesh Jain has appeared in numerous interviews, conferences, and public engagements.
