Mythological Fantasy based plot through the perils of an enchanting parallel
Nakul, a second generation
Indian-American and Yale sophomore, had always harbored a fascination for
India’s mythological origins replete with tales of exotic demigods and
tyrannical demons who ruled the primordial subcontinent.
However, one fated academic
expedition in the hallowed soils of Tibet would change Nakul’s life forever and
effectively plunge the human world into a hellish abyss. Nakul discovers a
relic whose lustrous veneer conceals a deadly curse to resurrect an ancient
demonic race known as the Danavas who lord over the colossal three-city flying
kingdom of Tripura. These prodigious titans of the legendary Atlantean lineage
would stop at nothing to seize the earth and subjugate its racially inferior
Nakul, as the fate anointed

Ganesan is presently based in the city of
Mumbai, where he was born and raised.
Ever since his childhood, Ganesan had
nurtured a deep passion for the arts and imaginative story-telling mainly in
the form of sketches and short stories. As an avid film buff and fan of
science-fiction thrillers such as The Jurassic Park, Blade Runner, Alien,
Terminator and many such masterpieces, he had always yearned to develop stories
set in extraordinary worlds that exist in parallel to our own universe.
The Hindu mythology is rich in literature
covering the various metaphysical, spiritual and scientific aspects of not only
our human world but also other dimensions and realms that we barely know about.
It is the innate curiosity for such esoteric subjects which led Ganesan to
tackle the monumental task of writing a story inspired by Hindu mythology.
As a writer, Ganesan is particularly
interested in exploring the science-fiction, fantasy and techno-thriller themes
revolving around superhuman extraterrestrials, lost civilizations and the vast
ocean of Hindu mythology.
