About the artist

Dr Pranav Kodial is a consultant ophthalmologist by profession. During his free time, he also doubles as a compulsive writer.

Dr Kodial lives in Dahanu―a quiet seaside town in Maharashtra―with his anesthesiologist wife Ashwini, children Anirudh and Saanika, and beagle named Bandu.
