Arun Joshi was raised by a family of eminent scholars in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. During his time in the United States, he received a B.S. degree from Kansas University and an M.S. degree from M.I.T. His experiences in the U.S. are a recurring motif in many of his works.
On returning to India, he began working at Delhi Cloth & General Mills, North India's first textile factory and among the earliest joint-stock companies of the country, as chief of its recruitment and training department. He married Rukmini Lal, a daughter of a shareholder. He resigned from D.C.M. in 1965 while continuing to be the executive director of Shri Ram Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources in Delhi.
