Q. Can you tell us a bit about your book "Krishna Series - The Beginning"?

This is part 1 of the Krishna Series: a mythological fiction based on the life of Lord Krishna. I have tried retelling certain aspects of the story while adding a lot of unknown aspects from the life of Lord Krishna.

Most of it is based on the research that I did on Lord Krishna.

Q. What inspired the idea for your book?

I am an avid reader, I enjoy reading the mythological genre especially. This is my third book and my second attempt at the mythological genre.

Q. So, where did you start? What was the writing process like for this book?

I had just finished my second book, The Signet Ring, a mythological fiction based on Lord Hanuman. I was looking for a new subject and finally, I zeroed in on the life of Lord Krishna.

Q.What kind of research did you undertake, and how did you go about it?

I went through a meticulous research process reading a lot about the Life of Lord Krishna on the net and in libraries. I came across quite a few not-so-known incidents about the life of Lord Krishna.

It was a wonderful process to go through all that information.

Being very clear about the plot, right from the start till the very end is very important. One should detail the plot as much as possible before starting to write the book.
