About the Author

Kevin Missal is a twenty-two year old graduate of St. Stephen’s College. He has previously released the first book of the Kalki Trilogy, Dharmayoddha Kalki: Avatar of Vishnu, which became a National best-seller and received praise from newspapers such as Millennium Post and Sunday Guardian who have termed it as “2017’s mythological phenomenon”. Kevin loves reading, watching films, and building stories in his mind. He lives in New Delhi.

 

 

 

1) Kalki seems to be an extensive book which focuses so much on their characters too. What was your thought process to build them up? 
It was about creating enough conflicts, enough pain in their lives that was tough for me. I thought about a character and wondered what was the worst thing I can do to them and then I do it.
We all think Kalki will win in book 1 and he loses and that’s what makes it interesting. Every other book would have shown him as this undefeated hero but I chose to show him weak who’ll grow strong.

A little about the Author

Dr. Jagdish Chaturvedi has been known all his life by family, friends and peers for being absentminded, impulsive and for making mistakes, failing and causing blunders. Despite this, at the age of 33, he is a well-to-do Ear Nose Throat surgeon and medical device innovator with 18 inventions to date. He was recognized as one of the 35 innovators under the age of 35 by MIT Technology Review in 2016.

He is a well-known stand-up comedian, actor and an author of the best-selling book on medical devices called Inventing Medical Devices: A Perspective from India.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK :

 

BLURB OF THE BOOK – 

In this book, Dr. Chaturvedi shares ten personal anecdotes of mistakes and failures and gives a perspective of his interpretation, where he positions failures as a part of the process rather than a definitive outcome. Explaining with humorous caricatures and situations, he demonstrates numerous benefits that arise from such mistakes, why they are important and how they have helped him shape his career.

Even though the mistakes and failures made by Dr. Chaturvedi may appear trivial and in-significant when compared to those faced by many others in the general population, they highlight the principles of a very unique and positive perspective that may be applied in mistakes and failures of greater magnitudes as well. This book may serve to be food for thought for many who believe that failures are detrimental and that they should be aggressively avoided and not embraced. It may change their minds to think about failures as steps towards success, by showing how key insights from these failures can be used to empower new skills and opportunities.

 

Now that you know all of this. here we bombard the author with questions and get an insight more about the interesting book.

 

1)  Tell us a little about the book and what it means to you?
This book is my way of sharing how failures have helped me progress in life faster and more effectively. At the age of 34 if I am a well-to-do doctor, successful Medical device innovator, serial author and stand up comedian then all credit goes to the ability to fail and make mistakes quickly which helped me evolve faster. I don’t think many people realise the benefits of making mistakes and failing. The learnings from mistakes can make one good at things and many such learnings makes one an expert. People generally avoid mistakes and miss out on a chance to improve. Through this book I want to demonstrate how my failures have helped me more than negatively impact me.
