Author, Loss Assessor, Valuer and Writer in Hyderabad, India
B. 27 Aug 1948, I’m the author of Benign Flame: Saga of Love, Jewel-less Crown:: Saga of Life, Crossing the Mirage: Passing through youth (plot and character driven novels all), Glaring Shadow: A stream of consciousness novel, Prey on the Prowl: A Crime Novel and Onto the Stage: 'Slighted Souls' and other stage and radio plays besides Stories Varied - A Book of Short Stories.
All my 'novel' endeavors were borne out of my conviction that if fiction were to impact readers, it should be the soulful saga of native characters rooted in their soil but not the meandering wanderings of a hotchpotch of local and alien caricatures sketched on a hybrid canvas.
My non-fiction works are Puppets of Faith: Theory of Communal Strife, Bhagvad-Gita: Treatise of Self-help (sans 110 interpolations in verses with contemporary idiom) and Sundara Kãnda: Hanuman’s Odyssey, also in verse.
My body of work is available as free e-books at umpteen websites such as Project Gutenberg Self-publishing Press, Internet Achieve, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple iTunes, obooko.com, Smashwords, Free ebooks net, Freebookspot. Feedboks, Ebookjunkie and also http://e-library.net
Besides articles on general management (The Hindu), materials management (Purchase) general insurance (The Insurance Times) and literary/social subjects (Triveni,) I had contributed ‘Addendum to Evolution: Origins of the World by Eastern Speculative Philosophy’ to The Examined Life On-Line Philosophy Journal, Vol. 05 Issue 18, Summer 2004, that I incorporated in the 'Epilogue' of my novel Jewel-less Crown: Saga of Life.
