Author Biography

Hi,
I love writing. Period.

My books speak for themselves. Read them. You'll love them.

I am a corporate lawyer by profession. My books haven't the faintest hint of my profession. Yeah, well, maybe just an inkling. Sometimes. When the story demands a court room.

Check out a few extracts of reviews of my latest book, Agniputr: When Agni First Spoke.

"Vadhan’s narrative aptly provides thrill a minute at the same time keeping the suspense factor intact."
-The Hindu

"Overall, the writer has managed to pen down a remarkable and fast paced book"
- Millennium Post.

"If this is the future of fantasy books in India, I'm sure it is brighter than bright!"
- Archit Ojha, top Goodreads Librarian.

The mystery of how the Baba knew what I was thinking! I had doubts on him as a spiritual leader. I was a 15 year old, questioning every belief that my ancient system offered me. Including the Baba. My doubts were my own. I had not voiced them. Yet, the next day, when we met him, he knew exactly what I was thinking. He made me sit and asked me why I doubted him. He also promised that he will always be there for me. I am 49 now. The Baba passed away a few years ago. I am still not able to get over how he knew my thoughts. How do I explain it (to myself)?

2. When my office boy, a guy barely in his twenties, told me one day out of the blue that "It's there and until it's chased away, you will never prosper," before he fell in a dead faint. It's a fact that once we performed certain remedial actions including donating a cow and a calf to a temple, (totally unconnected with the office boy), things just fell into place. How do I explain it (to myself) ? (less)

I must keep my bowl of knowledge empty, or at least as empty as possible. I must not let the knowledge already acquired bog me down so I cannot absorb the change. Because, change is th...

The important thing for me is that the book remained in my head we'll after I finished it. The character building was good. Why four stars? The language could have been less strained. A very good effort.

“Extinction is not an event, it is a chain reaction!”
Vadhan

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
Issac Asimov

“In that year began the tragic bookending of the Indian debate on secularism with two unspeakable pogroms. From that time onwards the 1984 riots in Delhi that took place on Rajiv Gandhi’s watch and the 2002 Gujarat riots that took place on Narendra Modi’s watch would be used to checkmate one another in what might be called the chessboard of competitive communalism. And secularism, the foundation of the republic, fashioned out of our astonishingly diverse society, would find itself challenged again.”
