Author Biography

Lateral is an entity of one planet, a person of no known gender. We don’t have a pronoun in our grammar to suit Lateral’s gender. We can’t use ‘he’ or ‘she’, so we shall use the pronoun ‘phe’; objective case of ‘phe’ is ‘phim’; ‘phes’ means – of or relating to phim, especially as possessor.
Lateral wanted to know about the world, especially about the people living on the world. Phe doesn’t understand the languages, the religions, the rules and regulations of this world. It is a daunting task to know about so many people living on this world, so phe probed into the brain of one citizen of the world to extract the memoirs of his life. This citizen of the world is John George; this book is about how John led his life in this world with some more people of this world.
Please excuse Lateral for phes lack of knowledge about the languages, the religions, the rules and regulations of this world. Phe doesn’t know what we call obscene or illegal. Please listen to phim and check if phe makes any sense to you.

In real life, the author started his career as a graduate mechanical engineer. While working, He has also become a MBA, a Master of Computing Sciences and PhD in Computing Sciences from the University of Technology, Sydney. He has met people all over the world, while providing consultancy to major banks at Warsaw, Glasgow, Bangkok, Manila, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney. Writing is not the profession that wins bread for me, though I love to write to connect to the world as a citizen in the family of WORLD.

Know No Boundaries, Does Anything Really Belong To Me? is a concept of a one world government that would allow citizens to travel and live in different areas of the world without visas. John George is an international traveler employed by various companies for organizing teams to complete assignments of a technical nature. When his travel plans are halted, he is detained for a forensic memory scan to see if he is a terrorist threat to society. The deep probe of John's memories tells the story of John's life with devotion to family ties and the struggles he encounters along the way. John's wife loves to spend his money, but treats him like a henpecked servant. Although she prefers the touch of other men, as a married couple, they still make major decisions together so that they can lead a lifestyle that appeases her.

What Lateral Collateral's story lacks in action or humor, it more than makes up with the details of John's hard work in educating himself for any task at hand, and his generosity to his immediate and his extended family members. Collateral writes with a style that enables the reader to easily picture everything vividly. By the end of the book, you find yourself turning the pages more and more rapidly. While reading this book I could actually visualize Lateral's story as a movie. As he relates John's life story, he begins every chapter with what the forensic scan of John's memories reveals. The beginning of the story got my interest and the end of the story was an excellent page turner.

Never before I have read a book like ‘Know No Boundaries’.

In this book, I get a share the author’s vision of the coming decades and centuries, I believe, this will help the readers cope with the forthcoming changes in technology and medical sciences both physically and mentally. It appears that we are going to abandon many traditional rules and regulations in coming decades..
The book ‘Know No Boundaries’ takes the readers from the traditional society of marriages arranged by parents to the marriage-less society of twenty first century and beyond through the story of a computer programmer, John, who was born in a developing country, bewitched by boundaries. So he was out and out brainwashed by traditional rules and regulations when he started his journey of life. But he was helped by his brain and willpower. He could see through the games people play to exploit others in the pretext of following traditions. He moved from the developing world to the developed world and started the mantra –
“Let’s belong to our World and let World belong to us - to work for and to live in. Let boundaries disappear between countries and families.”
“And God said, Let there be Light: and there was Light” - especially after the start of the Internet, physical boundaries started becoming insignificant against the humanitarian urge across boundaries.
People don’t need to undertake loveless, sexless marriages at all. In a marriage-less society, sex can be offered to friends, guests just like drinks, snacks and kisses, taking care of personal hygiene and medical complexities; no need for prostitutes. One doesn’t have to forsake one’s ness, even Oneness, to keep the traditional family happy. You don’t have to be imprisoned within family boundaries. You nurture what you can do best, create and contribute to the world; your time and money are the best resources you have; you don’t need to while it away, without the satisfaction of realising yourself and your neighbours.
