The Write Place

Vishak Shakti


Vishak Shakti is a writer by compulsion. He writes to vent, to purge, to indulge, and sometimes just for the heck of it. He has written for publications such as MSN India, The Hindu, and Clean Bowled. He thinks that a good book has three essential ingredients – entertainment, artistry and relevance, in that order. He has a liking for literary thrillers, philosofiction, and compelling non-fiction. He has a peculiar liking for writers with irreverent voices. He was a film buff for a long time until eventually getting swept off by the golden age of television. Cricket is his guilty pleasure, both Tests and T20s, but hardly anything in between. He is a Tech. Product Manager in his day job and lives in Bengaluru.
