Jiten was born in Assam in 1936. Jiten graduated in Civil Engineering in 1963 and was commissioned in the Corps of Engineers, Indian Army, in 1964. Attaining the rank of Colonel, he retired prematurely in 1990 to devote himself to painting. Jiten has accumulated a deep and abiding knowledge of philosophy and Sanskrit literature and this is reflected in his painting, as are his boyhood memories of day to day life in rural Assam. His work has been the subject of academic research even at the doctoral level. Various universities have honored him and appointed him a 'Resource Person' for matters pertaining to art. He has held several exhibitions in India and abroad.
