The Incidental Criminal Series, is perhaps the best of all that I have written in the last two years, and as such is very close to my heart. This series, though started off as a one-off piece, inspired me and continues to do so, in searching for new avenues in order to evolve myself into a better writer and story-teller.
The series holds tremendous sentimental value. Some of the stories were written when I was neck-deep in work, studying Velocity triangles in Turbines, various Refrigeration cycles, Machine Design and so on, for my engineering exams; sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night, and start writing them as a draft message in my mobile, or simply sitting on my workstation in the office in the Lunch breaks.
In a nutshell, for quite some time, this series has represented whatever small excitement I have in my rather routine and monotonous life.
