V S Joji :- Dr V.S. Joji, working as faculty at Rajiv Gandhi National Ground Water Training and Research Institute, Central Ground Water Board, Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Govt. of India, Raipur, Chhattisgarh and is also  working as Govt. of India TNA consultant. He completed his graduation and post-graduation from University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram. He carried his PhD work at the University of Kerala availing financial assistance from University Grants Commission in the form of UGC-Junior Research Fellowship (UGC-JRF). Dr. Joji qualified almost all the competitive examinations in the field of Geology and a few among them are NET, UGC-JRF, CSIR-JRF, GATE, Geologist in ONGC & GSI and Lecturer in Geology.
Dr. Joji has successfully completed many TOT courses of DOPT such as SAT, NTP, TNA, DTS and DOT courses designed by Thames valley University, UK. He has more than 50 published international, national research, technical papers and reports to his credit. 

Dr Rajeeva Guhey :- Dr V.S. Joji's affordable new book entitled "An Introduction to Geology with Multiple- Choice Questions" published by I K International Publishing House, New Delhi, is a much needed publication. Apart from undergraduate and post graduate students of Geology and engineering, this book would be highly useful for faculty and students preparing for various competitive examinations like GATE, UPSC, IAS, UGC-CSIR JRF, and various state level exams. The book describes basic concepts of almost all branches of Geology, followed by solved question bank containing about 1400 objective type questions on respective topics. The book also contains solved GATE papers of last five years. The only shortcoming I observed is lack of illustrations particularly in the descriptive section. The subject geology is such that without pictorial presentations, the descriptions tend to be far less perspicuous.
Dr V.S. Joji has tried to incorporate all the necessary components of the subject, for which he deserves all accolades. I wish that the author's efforts are highly useful to the whole community of earth sciences including mining and civil engineers.
