Krishna Kumar studies, evaluates, and analyzes events in Indian history with particular emphasis on the British Period. As an analytical author Krishna’s books and articles focus on peeling through the various layers of information, providing clarity on how the events happened, why these happened, who the key participants were, and what were the consequences of those events and decisions. He therefore connects multiple threads highlighting the intricacies of the period. He now devotes his entire energy to this activity, he had an interest in Indian history and analysis since an early age, and it continued though he pursued a career in an unrelated field for most of his adult life. His first book, ‘ 1942 When the British Rule In India Was Threatened,' analyzes events and how they evolved into the end of colonial rule in India. He is soon to follow it with a collection of short stories inspired by Indian history and a thriller. Krishna continues working on his main project, a series of six books about the British in India, covering the Period 1608-1950. These books intend to present an analysis and bring out the realities of the Period. Krishna grew up in India and now lives in the United States with his family.
