Author Bio: B.R. alias Bha Ra Bhagwat was born in Indore in 1910 and educated in Nasik and Dhule. In 1941 he joined the All India Radio in New Delhi as a newsreader. Following the broadcast of Mahatma Gandhis arrest, Bhagwat went underground to join the freedom struggle in Mumbai. He was arrested and jailed for almost two years. After independence, Bha Ra devoted himself to translating the science fiction of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells into Marathi. From 1950 to 1957 he published a very popular Marathi magazine for children, called Balmitra. Bha Ra also created the character Faster Fenay, who became immensely popular among Marathi children.The work was later serialized on Doordarshan. Bha Ra wrote around 200 books and was also proficient in writing comic strips. He died in 2001. One of the most prolific childrens writers in Marathi, B.R. Bhagwat has won several prestigious literature awards.

Tejas Modak writes, illustrates, paints, makes comics, buys more books than he has room for, works as part of a graphic design studio called Euphoric Acid, yaks endlessly about art, lives in Pune and goes to sleep with an exhausted but contented smile on his face.

His first graphic novel, Private-eye Anonymous: The Art Gallery Case, was published in 2008. Animal Palette, a graphic book he collaborated on as illustrator, was published in 2011.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Tuesday 15 January, 2013.
