I am the co-founder of a fashion start-up centred around Indian designs,, and a national bestselling Indian author. I have more than twenty five years of experience in the FMCG sector and media, at senior levels with companies such as Coca-Cola, Red FM, Big FM and the Times of India.

My work has taken me across the country, and I find this experience very relevant while giving shape to my stories.

I have authored five books till now, and the sixth is under print. I took up writing fiction in 2007 because of my compelling passion to understand human relationships and behaviour. I am fascinated by music, literature, history and travel.

I am based in Gurgaon, India. My parents are eminent and award-winning Hindi writers.

Would love to get your thoughts and feedback on my books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Imperative read
By readers_and_creators on 12 September 2020
Akash Verma’s writing style is imperative, the story will raise your expectations but the end will blow it away. I have noticed a trail in new authors, they don’t want to increase the page count; and that according to me fails the story with its hurried climax, mostly. Well, if a story is compelling, readers never mind the page count.

Samir idolise his senior Nakul, his continuous peeking and interfering soon become a habit for Nakul, and in no time they both developed a bond, which people crave lifelong. Although, the involvement in that friendship was always more from Samir’s side and Nakul seem selfish, but with time Nakul also become habitual to that little kid and start loving him as a younger brother. A single incident turned their lives upside down; Nakul took a lifelong guilt, which stuck by him in form of nightmares; Samir’s whole personality changed after that day.

Present Nakul; a father and a widower, was finally moving on with his life, when the lighting struck. Samir; vice-principal of Anna’s (Nakul’s daughter) school, arrived for probing of a murder in school. Sandhya; Samir’s wife has a totally different plan set out for both men. Her anger towards her husband, and hatred towards man who turned Samir like this, made her adamant of destroying both of their lives.

The story took an instant plot twist, everyone’s motive to sabotage their enemy lives got shattered. The climax was totally unexpected and illogical.

How would Samir interrogate Anna? How would Sandhya’s plan workout? How Nakul save his daughter from his childhood bestie turned enemy?

Overall, okay-okayish book; which could have been fantastic story if the climax was different.
