Set in mid 20th Century New Delhi, Jewel-less Crown is about the rise and fall of the Prabhus, the ambitious Gautam and the conniving Sneha, and the inimical life of their wayward son Suresh as well as his ardent times with the vivacious Vidya.
In this fascinating saga of life, even as Book I, Artha and Kama, portrays the conflict and resolution arising out of ambition and achievement, intrigue and betrayal, compulsion and compromise, sleaze and scandal, trial and sentence, and regret and remorse, Book II, Dharma and Moksha, depicts the redemption of life in repentance and recompense, hope and despair, love and empathy coupled with compassion and contribution leading to the spirituality of materialism.

Born 27 Aug 1948 and schooled in letter writing, I’m the author of Benign Flame: Saga of Love, Jewel-less Crown:: Saga of Life, Crossing the Mirage: Passing through youth (plot and character driven novels all), Glaring Shadow: A stream of consciousness novel, Prey on the Prowl: A Crime Novel and Onto the Stage: 'Slighted Souls' and other stage and radio plays besides Stories Varied – A Book of short Stories. All these were borne out of my conviction that for fiction to impact readers, it should be the soulful rendering of characters rooted in their native soil but not the hotchpotch of local and foreign caricatures sketched on a hybrid canvas.
