Author Interview: Kevin Missal, Author of Kalki Trilogy

Hey everyone!

Today, I'm here with a short interview I did with Kevin Missal, author of the well known Kalki Trilogy!

  1. Mythology is one of the most common genres written in by Indian authors. How does Kalki stand out among all the other mythological books?

    Because it has heart. 

  2. Did you have to research a lot in order to write Kalki? 

    Yeah I did but it was very general. Most of it was fantasy. 

  3. Do you write in genres other than Mythology? Why/why not?

    I want to but I like mythology than other genre is because you get to twist stories, ground them and show your interpretation. 

  4. What book are you currently working on?


  5. Your top five all time favourite reads?

    1) Godfather 
    2) Alchemist 
    3) Devotion of Suspect X 
    4) Percy Jackson (any book) 
    5) Hobbit 
Thank you for your time! I wish you all the good luck with your books!

Whenever there is a decline in righteousness and an upsurge in unrighteousness, at that time, I take birth again. 

Born in the quiet village of Shambala, Kalki Hari, son of Vishnuyath and Sumati, has no idea about his heritage until he is pitted against tragedies and battles. 

Whisked into the province of Keekatpur, which is under the fist of Lord Kali, Kalki sees the ignominy of death trumping life all around him. He learns that he has been born to cleanse the world he lives in, for which he must journey to the North and learn the ways of Lord Vishnu’s Avatar; from an immortal who wields an axe. 
But trapped in the midst of betrayals, political intrigue and forces that seek to decimate him, will he be able to follow his destiny before the Kaliyug begins?

Review: Knotty Affairs

Genre: General Fiction, Romance.
Rating: đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«

A land of countless customs, few things in India get bigger than a big fat wedding. A marriage is a celebration which brings families and friends together. And the ceremony ends with the tradition of the bride leaving her parents' home and moving in with her husband. The groom always has a choice-he can either stay with his parents or stay separately. However, for the bride her 'home' is now a strange place.

Meet Aakash, a young dental intern, who falls in love with Kashish. However, what he doesn't know is that winning her heart was never going to be easy. Kashish is resolute-nothing, not even their budding romance, will come in the way of her devotion to her parents.

Cut to four years later. Akash has fallen in love with Aneri, the only daughter of her parents. However, his father is clearly miffed by this development, and enlists the help of a psychologist friend to help Aakash. Furthermore, his father is also not surprised at the couple's request of entering into a live-in relationship before the marriage. But is Aakash ready to challenge the existing customs for his love? Is he prepared to go to any lengths to see that his love does not shed another tear?

Take this tradition-defying journey with Aakash, Kashish and Aneri as they dare to delve deeper into the web of love and relationships. Warm up to their crazy antics which will leave you wondering-why can't this be my story?!

The cover is cute, not exactly beautiful, but a good cover nonetheless.

Knotty Affairs was the story of a guy who was on the quest to find a perfect life partner. It was full of humour as well as much needed pondering over the age old customs Indian marriages and societies still follow. 

I loved the book because of its uniqueness and because someone finally went out there and said that it's NOT okay to force a girl to move out of her home when the boy clearly gets a choice. That's what made me like the book so much, more than anything else in the book. 

There wasn't much romance. There were love stories, sure, but only a few instances of romance, and that's why I'd shelve the book under general fiction rather than under romance.

Knotty Affairs was a fun, light read at first glance, but it also talked about much more serious topics that need talking about.
