When the real world seems hard, we often turn to the reel world. Filled with imagination and diverse possibilities it offers a different life altogether. Maybe that is why fictional and mythological books and films became people’s favourite. When author Jatin Gupta started exploring the fantasy world of West he got nostalgic with his own childhood memories where his grandparents would narrate mythological stories to him. His inquisitiveness developed an interest in the genre and he went on to write his own book ‘Kali Yuga: The Ascension’.
While talking about his book with Hyderabad Today Jatin said, “India is abundant with prophecies and myths. I wanted to develop a mythological story with futuristic elements that can grasp the reader’s interest. The story is set in the mythical land of Shivpuri in the great Himalayas which holds an enthralling tale of many centuries ago.”
The head of business operations at a leading gaming company, Jatin launched the motion trailer of his book in December which garnered him a good response. Overwhelmed by the reader’s feedback, he also plans to write a sequel to the book. “Some producers have expressed their interest in making an animation film based on my book. I feel excited about it as it will be really interesting to see my characters on a virtual screen.”
Hyderabad based author is a voracious reader who likes to indulge in the world of biographies and fiction often. “Vajpayee’s biography is my personal favourite. I am more of a fiction guy who loves to dive into the world of imagination,” said Jatin.
‘Kali Yuga’ narrates the story of Guru Parshuram, guide, and leader of the five outcast clans of the Rudra Sena—Him Manavs, Bhuals, Aghoras, Nand Garajnas and Agneyas—who prepares for the prophesied reincarnation of Lord Anjaneya in one of the clans. The tale follows a rollercoaster ride that takes you deep into a mystical, magical world of honour, valour, bravery, and self-sacrifice, as the timeless clash of good and evil unfolds.
