Saurav Mohapatra
I am a freelance writer.  My most well known work is my creator-owned graphic novel “MUMBAI CONFIDENTIAL” . My most recent work includes SHOLAY: GABBAR (The official prequel to the iconic Indian movie) from Westland/Graphic India, WAY OF THE WARRIOR, and MOON MOUNTAIN from Penguin Random House.

I have also worked on WITCHBLADE for Image Comics/Top Cow and THE PHANTOM for Moonstone Books.   During my time at Virgin Comics, I wrote the monthly series Shekhar Kapur’s DEVI, SADHU and Deepak Chopra presents INDIA AUTHENTIC as well as the one shots JIMMY ZHINGHCAK  and MUMBAI MACGUFFIN. I’m always open for possible collaboration with other creative professionals and i can be reached via the contact page or at mohaps AT gmail DOT com.

OTHER STUFF

I am the Co-founder of a start-up called dimdim, the world’s free web conference company 🙂 for which I am currently employed as Director of Technology. In Jan 2011, Dimdim was acquired by Salesforce.com and I relocated to Salesforce HQ in San Francisco. After nearly three years with Salesforce, I left sunny California for snowy Massachusetts and now I live near Boston, MA.

I also like to play cricket and softball.

I used to be very active in the indie game development scene and was particularly involved with the irrlicht 3d engine and have received an author credit for it.

  1. Hi Saurav,
    Hope to see you at the Bangalore Comic Con on June 2nd 2013.
    I had ordered your book from Flipkart a while ago, but strangely there was no news or response from the retailers (they’re there only to sell, not explain why it was delayed, etc.).
