Born in Dhampus, Kaski, Gandaki, Nepal, in 1963, Tim Gurung studied at the local school, and just like his father and uncles, he joined the British army at the age of 17, and came to Hong Kong in 1980 as a Gurkha soldier. After serving in the army for 13 years, Tim voluntarily retired and returned to Hong Kong and never left.

Having worked since Tim was 17, he had no chance of going to the university, and had learned everything from life's experiences. He worked hard, earned enough to provide a comfortable life for his family and was lucky enough to be able to make choices in life. Tim had always wanted to do something different after he turned fifty, something more important and meaningful that came directly from his heart. 
Tim shares on this show -"Writing has always been in me; the joy and satisfaction I get from writing are not possible from anything else. I genuinely feel at home only when I am writing; it is an excellent gift the Almighty bestowed upon me and I cannot waste it. I needed to use it for good and I have no intention whatsoever to write for fame or fortune. I write for good, for society and for the people.  They should write about global problems. I, for one, am going to try my best to do just, God willing, and I sincerely hope I can make progress toward change. As planned, I have already established a charity foundation on my family's behalf, ISSLCARE FOUNDATION LTD. The money I get from selling my books will be used to run my charity, and henceforth, I will spend the rest of my life helping the weak, the poor and the needy. This promise was not done in a fit of emotions, nor is it some sort of gimmick to sell more books, but a commitment of a lifetime, which I will fulfill at any cost.
