Kapil Raj is a professional, speaker and writer-activist based in Delhi-NCR, India. With the heart of a philosopher, mind of a realist, and a deep-rooted non-conformist, he lives many lives, yet stealing the time for the most precious thing that matters to him: crafting plots, playing with characters, and weaving the stories based on intricate social subjects and challenging the dogmas.
His debut book "ENDURER A Rape Story" is based on the most excruciating topic of our times which is rape and sexual abuse. The book received rave reviews and has become a Best Seller.
According to Kapil, “Our behavior towards victims is still based out of deep-rooted social coding. Even the sufferer forces self to blame and undergoes a difficult and harrowing time, getting secondary wounding by the near and dear ones. Even today, many cases never come to the surface with fear of loss of respect. The reason to write is to assert those age-old reactions and taboos associated with rape.”
The campaign #SheisnotaVictim #SheisanEndurer is well received by the media and reader forums.
After his debut novel ENDURER A Rape Story, he released Kuroopa which is the first book in the Change Stories Series. With its imminent success, he is back with the second book of the series, A Gutterful Life.
Change Stories is an amalgamation of five independent short stories.
Each short story interweaves a heartening story with a deeply imbibed social issue, hardened public belief, and associated fabrications. As you read the narrative, you watch and evolve with the characters, sometimes feeling yourself in them – empathizing in circumstances that may or may not have existed in your lives.
He is a noted speaker and delivered talks in prestigious institutions, colleges, and forums.
