Malay A. Upadhyay grew up in the Eastern provinces of paradoxical India. It was a childhood of anomalies - a different spacetime, where he could not understand a friend's passion for books on one hand even as he wrote for school elocution on the other. Today, all his stories belong to the world of Kalki Evian and constitute two persistent themes - a different city/country and matter(s) inherent to the society, organisations or the world around us.
While Malay works as a Marketer with an equivalent tilt towards Organisational development, he conceived many of the techno-economic ideas described in his first book - Kalki Evian: The Ring of Khaoriphea - at Bocconi University in Milano. His Blog of a Fly (at www.kalkievian.com) subscribes to the elusively effervescent, ephemeral connection among beings across space and time. That is after all, a belief that underlies every piece of literature ever written.
