The Crew!

Akshay D.Akshay Dhar (Founder/ Writer / Artist)

Once discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. A writer when life permits. A music and nature lover, geek, scribbler, day-dreamer, arm-chair philosopher and random road-tripper… A strangely hopeful cynic first and foremost from all accounts.

Loves to let his mind wander and at times it takes forever to find its way home. Loves a good story and prefers his comics to not just be pretty pictures – but will make exceptions for masters like Geof Darrow and J.H.Williams III.

He can be found online HERE on his blog and on Twitter.


Zafar Khurshid (Writer/Co-owner)

A lawyer by profession and a professional couch-potato by choice.

In the rare instances when he is not in a near vegetative state, he is known to try his hand at photography, poetry and writings of a generally geeked out nature and his greatest talent seems to be remembering the lyrics to every song he’s ever heard.

He is responsible for co-scripting the new hilarious parody-filled comic Holy Hell, so remember to give him equal blame for it! This is his first time writing for comics, but more about him and his work can be found on HIS BLOG and on TWITTER.

A friend and frequent contributor to Meta Desi, he has been a constant on the team since day-1.

An illustrator/animator, he has been drawing things for over a decade now. Featured in publications like Mid-Day, Hindustan Times and Time-Out, he has been in the comic domains since 2004 when he started illustrating for Tinkle Comics, one of his mainstays. Besides Tinkle, he has illustrated for graphic novels like Uud Bilaw Manus, Chairman Meow and others – however he is perhaps best known for his creator-owned and self-published titles like Angry Maushi and it’s sequel and for his rendition of Cow-Zilla from Holy Hell in the 2nd Meta Desi anthology.
