Deepak Unnikrishnan writes. Short stories. He is Abu Dhabi-an, manufactured and product tested in the capital of the Emirates by a quiet yet befuddled South Indian family. His first set of shorts, Coffee Stains in a Camel’s Teacup (2004) was published by Vijitha Yapa Publications (Colombo, Sri Lanka). His second set of shorts, Bane, The Brined Brain of I, is what almost exhausted him. The mission is to sneak and home the manuscript at the printers’ when no one is looking. Soon. His fiction has appeared in Desilit and Ego Magazine.
