Vishwesh Desai was born and raised in Ahmedabad, India, a hardcore Gujju who shares the infamous Gujarati sweet tooth.
A 17-year-old with a fierce passion for reading and writing, the publication of his short stories in the Estrade magazine and the 2015 edition of the ‘I CAN’ book preceded the completion of his first novel, Shadows of the Northlands, which also just happens to be the fourth one he started. Vishwesh was thirteen when he began writing “Shadows of the Northlands” and fourteen when it was published.
Vishwesh has been awarded with the 'Rana Kapoor Young Talent Award 2016' by Kumaon Literary Festival, Yes Bank and Yes Institute. He has spoken at several literature festivals all over the country.
His creative streak extends to painting and sketching, and he has a few art exhibitions under his belt.
Currently he is working on Project Bibliophilia, which comprises a drive to help build libraries for underprivileged children in Ahmedabad and a series of creative writing workshops for middle school children. So far, two libraries have already been set up at Make A Difference Foundation and Sauhard Foundation and the short stories written by the children are in the process of getting published in an anthology.
Vishwesh lives with his family in Ahmedabad, India.
