C’est Anvesh Jain. ये है अन्वेष जैन
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 fourth year honours student of international relations at the University of Toronto. I’m heavily involved both on and off campus in Toronto, as well as back home in Calgary, Alberta. I’ve worked for 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. After my degree, I hope to study law and to actively contribute to Canadian intellectual and civic life, while simultaneously honouring my Indic roots.
As a keen analyst of foreign affairs, I’ve written for the NATO Association of Canada, the Columbia SIPA Journal of International Affairs, the Southern California International Review, and Synergy: The Journal of Contemporary Asian Studies, among others.
I’m an Associate Editor at the Hart House Review literary magazine. My poetry has been published by the Literary Review of Canada, The London Reader, Adelaide, The Bombay Review, Kairos, and Vayavya. I aim to release my first full-length poetry book in 2021.
Anvesh Jain has appeared in numerous interviews, conferences, and public engagements.
