Suresh Nayar is a former online marketing professional and a hobby farmer from Bangalore, India.
His passion for ancient history and mythology has led him to read copiously on these subjects. He has travelled to various locations in India and SE Asia, seeking to be enlightened on the various mysterious legends of India’s glorious past.
His interactions with various scholars of history and mysticism during the journeys he took to seek the origins of India's ancient civilisations, has been his primary inspiration to publish these intriguing stories.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the IT capital of India, Bangalore, which was then home to a large number of educational institutions and historical monuments.
The several libraries, many established by the British almost a century ago, spread over the various residential areas of Bangalore, used to be my favourite destination to seek knowledge.
Being a student of history, it was but natural for me to seek out origins of the many ancient civilisations of India. As I read more and more about the civilisations, I realised that most of it wasn't published for mass consumption and therefore, most Indians were unaware of their ancient origins.
I felt it would be interesting to the reader, if a bit of fiction was thrown around the historical facts and that inspired me to write my first novel on ancient Tamil antiquity.
When did you first start writing?
My first novel was published in 2018, but I had begun writing this novel almost two years ago.
Of course, I have contributed to magazines both at school and college was the chief editor for the corporate magazines at various organisations I worked at.

Who were these individuals?
Was it one individual who discovered time travel?
Was it the one man who was an immortal?
OR, were they four different people mysteriously connected to each other through several millennia?
