is a tribute to the 11th President of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam who had offered to be the ambassador for the
award and International-Volunteering-Olympiad.
Srivastava was conferred the award for his robust and deep research into the
Mughal history, helping him to unveil the unknown facts that can potentially
change the History known to us. His writing style is reminiscent of Imperial
Court, transporting one to the Mughal era where the forgotten history is disclosed
through compelling narrative.
ecstatic on the occasion, Mr. Srivastava said, “As per my observation I
realized that the line between Facts and Fiction is very thin as both coexist
peacefully in History, layering each other. This led me to stand the belief that
historical fiction writing is a voice from the past and this stirred me to go
deep into Mughal history to weave a story-The Untold Story. In addition to all
these the professed love for all things ceremonial, martial, regal were so amusing
that it led me to enter the genre of Historical Fiction writing.”
Chakra Award winner was also honoured with Excellence
in Writing Award at British Parliament in the month of September, 2019 and
is currently involved with the sequel of Daggers of Treason named The
Jhelum Betrayal which will be published soon.
