    Things You Can Do is a novel that explores the struggles of a writer who has lost creative control over their content and the burden of producing content that sells rather than producing the content they want.

  • The Last Kaurava a Novel

    by Kamesh Ramakrishna
    The Last Kaurava is not a re-telling of the Mahabharata – it is an entirely new work of fiction. Though it uses several characters from the Epic and mostly follows the story-line, there are events that never occur in the Mahabharata or vary greatly from the story as told in the Mahabharata. Reading The Last Kaurava requires that the reader be flexible and open-minded enough to let the story play out.    Two stories unfold in the book:  the first story explores the writing down of the Mahabhara... more
