An Indian

Mumbai, India



I was born and raised in Mumbai, India. I came to the US in 1989 and lived in New York. I currently reside in Los Angeles with my wife and two children.

I've written three books.

I term my first book, India Was One, as a realistic fiction, a fiction based on some real events. Find out more about it at It has a brief synopsis, various artworks used in the book, the poem used in the book, a few reviews (including several media reviews in magazines and newspapers in the US, Canada and India), an interactive map of India, and much more. You can read a few sample chapters here -

India Was One


My second book, Beyond The Milky Way, is a science fiction. It's the first book in The Galaxy Series.

An Indian isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

“Clothes don't make one attractive, their nature does.”
An Indian

“An Indian lies in the eyes of the beholder…what you choose to see.

You can travel the length and breadth of India, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Mumbai to Kolkota, and not see a single Indian. You will see Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, etc. You will see Maharashtrians, Gujaratis, UPites, Biharis, Bengalis, Tamils, Telugus, Malayalis, etc.

Or you will see Indians.”
