How do you think your book is different from everyone else’s?


Is it? I leave it to the readers.



Between your storyline and your characters, which takes precedence?

Kavita Kane


I work around a known or familiar storyline bringing to light characters often overlooked or buried in the huge narrative of the epics

I prefer giving these characters a voice.  



What was the most challenging part of writing this book?


The last conversation between Vasishṭh and Vishwamitra.  Two intellectual giants interacting without a verbal duel was quite a task


How much of the story is based on and the research and how much is imagination?


The fact-fiction ratio keeps changing

As I said earlier there was nothing on Menaka but tonnes on Vasishṭh , Vishwamitra and Indra by which an entire narrative could be weaved


How do you come up with the concepts and develop them?


That's the craft of writing!


What book is coming from you, next? When do you see it released?


Am almost done with the next book. And yes, it's about an extraordinary, highly misunderstood woman. It should be out by this December


Haruki Murukami
Which books are you currently reading?


Haruki Murakamis 'Kafka on the Shore' and Robert Galbraiths 'Career of Evil'.


What else do you like to do on a daily basis?


Watch movies!
