In His Own Words:
As an amateur historian and debut novelist, it is my aim to use my admittedly limited knowledge in history along with my imagination to weave up stories of less sung, yet, no less formidable heroes and heroines from Indian history.
Although based on some real events on people, it is important to note that my works are works of fiction. I'd like to see them as works serving as ballads and odes, where exaggerations, omissions and figments of imagination are allowed to pay tribute to a larger-than-life personality. My goal is to spark an interest for these personalities in my fellow countrymen - an interest to do their own historical research, visit monuments of note and learn about their great heritage, NOT to re-write or misrepresent events or characters from history.
As someone from the south of the country, it is my utmost privilege to present a two-book series on Bajirao Peshwa, one of the greatest sons of Bharat.
Ram Sivasankaran was born in Madras, India, but has spent most of his life abroad - largely in the Middle East and the United States of America.
He was brought up with stories from Hindu legend and the great epics and classics of both India and the West. In addition to being a passionate student of history in school, Ram built keen interest in stories of valor, heroism, chivalry, beauty and romance.
A day-dreamer of sorts, Ram believes deeply in the power of imagination - the mind being the canvas on which even the seemingly talentless can create new universes, resurrect eras long gone, bring the gods to life and even resurrect heroes and damsels of yore.
As such, Ram makes his debut with a historical novel on one of the greatest and yet, to an extent, less-known warrior from Indian history - Bajirao Bhat, Peshwa of the Maratha Confederacy.
