Pankaj MisraThe Judge: An engineer by education and a technologist by profession, Pankaj Misra is a traveller and explorer at heart. During his two decade active corporate career and his travails into the lap of nature and history he came across many people who left him enriched by some told and some often untold stories. He weaves his pen through these memories collected over the years in his first book The Himalayan Revelation. He lives in the beautiful heritage city of Mysore with his wife Ragini, son Aryaman and pet-son Shinzou.

The Himalayan Revelation is his debut novel.
