What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have been fascinated by the story of creation of River Ganges from childhood, the story has been described in Indian epics like Ramayana. The story has emphasis on the human ingenuity and efforts but always felt the way its described or narrated the envelope of spirituality and divine intervention takes the sheen away of the human effort.

Under his leadership Ikshavaku’s had maintained complete control on the metal mining and sugar production allowing him to ruthlessly get rid of the enemies and run unprecedented control over the empire.
Wise men like ‘Kapil’ and ‘Vashishta’ had been telling him that only bringing River Ganga to his empire would help. He was hoping that his grandson and eminent successor: Anshuman would succeed where he had failed. Recent news encouraging news from the mountains meant he had every reason to be optimistic.
