Prof Arvind Kumar Jain was Osho’s first secretary while at Jabalpur. He was Osho’s father’s sister’s son, i.e. a cousin, and he stayed with Osho. During that time his sister Kranti was the caretaker of Osho.

Arvind was a simple, humble and well-behaved person. He always came to the Railway Station to receive Osho and to give him a send-off. He maintained the Register of Osho’s assignments and, accordingly, he gave dates to friends who requested Osho’s lectures in their cities/towns. As long as Osho lived in Jabalpur, he took all possible care to comfort Osho.

Arvind graduated as Bachelor of commmerce (Gold medalist) and Master of commerce and was a professor at D.N. Jain college at Jabalpur.
