An entrepreneur, environmentalist, racer, wine lover, writer, and many more random things. Haresh has started writing through poetry and upon its mastery (mostly boredom, you cannot truly master writing as it is an evolving process) has shifted to experimenting with essay and short stories.

Haresh's passion in short story lies in being able to dwell within the universe of consciousness and experimenting, dissecting, and in short, exploring and destroying and recreating thoughts, concepts, interjecting hallucinations and twists focused on something deeper, engaging the reader to jump in and explore together.

Amazing book I can't put down. I was able to read it in one reading, each chapter is a story that is interconnected with other stories. Definitely recommending to everyone.
Evolution of Insanity by Haresh Daswani
"I have actually given up on this - such a shame as the ideas/concepts are interesting and, at times, really funny. However, the lack of editing and the many, many typos etc have made it a very difficult read for this one - I have made it about hal..." Read more of this review »

Evolution of Insanity by Haresh Daswani
"This is a fascinating book. The author circumvents traditional word usages and grammar to convey particular meanings into a series of short stories and reflections.

There is an excellent darkly comic sense running throughout. It is highly original..." Read more of this review »

Ed Rambeau Thanks for your friend request, Haresh, which I happily accept. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
