Prathamesh Malaikar, a resident of Navi Mumbai is an Engineer and an MBA by qualification and a banker by profession. However his affiliation for literature propels him in this direction. He is a multilingual writer and has 2 books under his credit. His first book "Meri Shayari, Mera Samaj” is a collection of his Hindustani poetry and it mostly deals with human emotions and socio-political scenarios around us. His second book, “Loving our Constitution” is a non-fiction based on his research on the history of the Indian Constitution. Politics, especially ideology driven politics has always been his core area of interest. Through his new story, “Shining stars in a fathomless void” he has created a fictitious world, where ideology and politics collide with each other and love becomes the victim.
