Nanda Kishore Rajanala took to storytelling to express his fascination for nature and the adventures of life in the realms of class, religion, race, culture, and society at large. He enjoys assimilating and challenging the various dogmas in today's society through his writings. He also writes occasionally about his experiences in contemporary India while celebrating the rich cultural history of the nation.
His first formally published book, One Summer in Poleru, is set in a rustic Indian village with a young girl as the protagonist. Readers have appreciated the book for its visual storytelling style and charming portrayal of various characters. It has also been generously compared to “Malgudi Days”, for those who relate to and love that brand of storytelling. If you are looking for a light read on a lazy weekend with a strong taste for anything Indian, go for it!
He primarily writes for young adults and the inner child in you. He lives with his wife and two children in Bengaluru, India.
