Vikas Singh is a self-confessed word addict, who obsessively reads anything that comes his way, be it a newspaper or the label on a cough syrup bottle. An Army kid, he spent most of his early life moving from one place to another with books being his only constant companion. A love-affair that is on even today, with the repertoire varying from military history to cartoon histories and non-fiction to pulp fiction.
Now a senior journalist, Vikas lives in Delhi with his wife and daughter in a house that seems to have more books than furniture. Having co-authored a brief, breezy history of knowledge, 'The Know of Things', with Derek O'Brien, Jug Suraiya and Bunny Suraiya, The Big Fix is Vikas's first novel, though definitely not his last.

Aftertaste by Namita Devidayal
"I was sceptical when I started Aftertaste. Blurb said it told story of a Baniya business family of the 80’s – good enough reason for me to be cautious. After all, this is story line of majority soap operas on Indian television today, where women c..." Read more of this review »

I'm a little disappointed because the ending is pretty obvious (I'd figured it out when I was about two-thirds through the book). Still, Jack Reacher gets into some interesting situations and even briefly shows signs that he may not be totally averse ...more

“If you succeed, you’ll be genuinely happy. If you fail, you will still have grown as a person. So truly, it is a win-win situation.”
Vikas Singh, Bhima

“It is undoubtedly one of the ironies of life that few people are aware that they are living their best days when they are actually doing so. Talk to the young and they will, almost invariably, say that their best days lie ahead. Talk to the aged and they will inevitably hark back to the past. Is it because nostalgia endows days gone by with a golden sheen that never truly existed? Or, is it because with the benefit of hindsight, we are able to see how trivial the worries that once seemed to loom so large actually were? And how what then seemed like minor joys were actually the source of our greatest happiness, if we’d only taken the time to notice and savour the moments?”
Vikas Singh, Bhima
