This episode was originally published in January 2016, and was the first episode of MyKitaab Podcast. I am posting this interview again for a couple of reasons: My wife and I met Vikrant last week in Vadodara, and he gave us a signed copy of his book "Rau", the English translation of the Marathi book by the same name. The Bollywood movie Bajirao Mastani is based on this book. Secondly, Vikrant and I are exploring how to convert this book into an audio series, if not an audiobook. Given these recent developments, I thought it was apt to re-publish this episode. New author interviews will be available from November 10th onwards.
