Yashas Mahajan was born in 1993, in Nagpur. After procrastinating for almost a decade and spending much of his adolescence in the quest of a degree in Engineering, he has finally decided to pursue his dream of being a writer.

Yashas lives in Nagpur with his parents, and can often be spotted either roaming around the city on his Activa or sitting in a cafe, staring at the screen of his iPad.

His first book, link: Arrkaya: Origins, is now available online, and is coming soon to stores near you.

The simplest thing I do is just start reading the latest few chapters of my incomplete manuscript.

This helps me immerse myself back into my world, and gets the proverbial juices flowing.

And even in the rare cases that this does not help, my time is productively utilised for proof-reading.(less)

Many of us often feel that our world or our lives are surprisingly boring, and that we do not quite fit in.

As a writer, one can create, and escape into, a wonderful new world, and can share this world with kindred spirits.(less)

As I mentioned a few weeks back, I am currently in the process of querying, and for the first time I feel like I am actually doing a good job.


Now, for those unfamiliar with the term, querying refers to contacting literary agents and hoping they like your work enough to want to work with you.


Over the past few weeks, I have noticed that the process is eerily similar to asking a girl ou...

Alan Moore
“People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

Isaac Asimov
“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.'
Isaac Asimov

Mark Twain
“If voting made any difference they wouldn't let us do it.”
Mark Twain

Douglas Adams
“It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see..."
"You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?"
"No," said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, "nothing so simple. Nothing anything like so straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford. "It is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?"
"What?"
"I said," said Ford, with an increasing air of urgency creeping into his voice, "have you got any gin?"
"I'll look. Tell me about the lizards."
Ford shrugged again.
"Some people say that the lizards are the best thing that ever happenned to them," he said. "They're completely wrong of course, completely and utterly wrong, but someone's got to say it."
"But that's terrible," said Arthur.
"Listen, bud," said Ford, "if I had one Altairian dollar for every time I heard one bit of the Universe look at another bit of the Universe and say 'That's terrible' I wouldn't be sitting here like a lemon looking for a gin.”
Douglas Adams, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
