From Halt Station India to The Great Indian Railway Romance

My journey as an author began with my first book, 'Halt Station India - The Dramatic Tale of the Nation’s First Rail Lines (Rupa 2015)', released by India’s Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.

Since then, I've gone on to write three more books and intend to write several more in the time to come.
