Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

Don’t do it half heartedly.

I am, Suraj Kothiyal, from the beautiful city of Dehradun. A mechanical engineer and an MBA in marketing, I had five years of corporate experience before I started my own construction firm that develops beautiful living spaces in Dehradun.

As a child, I had been writing poems in Hindi for my school magazine but the passion for writing bloomed when I started looking for doing something meaningful with my life.

Whenever I went close to the mighty mountains of Himalayas, they whispered a story in my ears. These stories later ignited a passion to write historic fictions and it’s my endeavor to bring to light the highly diversified and rich cultures across the world. This book is inspired by a popular folklore in Bali that talks of a Hindu saint namely, Maharishi Markandeya, who came to Bali from India and introduced Hinduism on the scenic island.
