Vinay Chakravarthy has been an avid history buff and a lover of Amar Chitra Katha and Tales of adventure as a child. He loves fantasy and Indian mythology as well as a rollicking rebirth saga. He has brought these varied interests to bear on his latest book.

He draws on these childhood inspirations and his general love of travel to bring a tale that begins like a Chandamama story and then goes on to explore themes of life and death, birth and rebirth.

In his real-life he can be found tending to the living as a Physician and in the company of his family and cats.
