Aditya Upadhaya, is an Electrical and Electronics Engineer by degree and a Software Engineer by profession with a fervour for writing. He is a Gold Medalist in his undergraduate studies. His profession gives him the opportunity to work in different places within India and abroad. His travels have introduced him to different cultures and traditions from all over the world. These experiences reflect on the characters of his book. Aditya developed a habit of writing from a very young age and his first proper writing experience was a beautiful poem written for his crush. The poem however never reached his crush but instead, was discovered by his father many years later. This poem was the beginning that stirred the writing worms in his head, which eventually led him to discover his passion for writing. Aditya is also an amateur table-tennis player and dreams about owning a restaurant someday.

Science and Magic is Aditya’s first book. Prior to this book, his passion for writing was not known by many. Science and Magic beautifully reflects his passion and his creative skills in fiction. Aditya has always believed that a writer can significantly impact someone’s life simply by expressing their thoughts on paper. Writing lets one build a connection to readers and can inspire, motivate, and help them through their difficult days. He strongly believes that a good writer can help the audience challenge their imagination and think outside of the box. According to him, books are the best way to escape reality. There is no limit to your imagination and you can create a different, beautiful world for your readers. A good book can be used as a tool for entertainment, stress relief, and at the same time, for learning values and good deeds.
