How was VRSAI born?

At the age of 36, Vatsal became divinely inspired by a series of incredible and challenging life events. This inspiration drove him to write 10 novels of different genres in a very short period of 6 months.

Vatsal aims to create a magnificent palace of vivid life experiences through artistic creations that rival the Palace of Versailles in beauty and splendor. The pronunciation of VRSAI resonates with that of Versailles in France. The 'V' in VRSAI stands for Vatsal, 'R' for Rudra, and 'SAI' for the highly revered Indian spiritual master and saint Sai Baba of Shirdi.

Rudra is Vatsal's male character's name – the character who represents the actor in him. Rudra is considered to be the 'Mightiest of the Mighty' deity in the ancient Rig Veda. The creation of VRSAI honors Vatsal's French muse in all of his books – his best friend and his beloved wife, Danielle.

What does the symbol for the VRSAI represent?

The gold-and-white-colored theme of the logo for VRSAI draws its inspiration from the Palace of Versailles for its beauty and glamor. The 'V' stands for Vatsal, 'D' stands for Danielle, and 'P' for Patel.

The downward-pointing triangle represents the descent of the Divine. The sun and moon at the top of the inverted triangle and above the letters represent entities that are beyond ordinary human perception of duality. We are using creative arts as a powerful tool to get closer to the universal Divine force by espousing social causes that are dear to us, making the world a better place to live.

Above D is a red dot that represents raw feminine power that gives life. There is a peacock feather within 'D.' Peacocks represent power, eternal beauty, resurrection, and divinity. In mortal perception, snakes and peacocks are enemies. However, in the divine design, they are in sync with the Creator and the Creation, each with its own value and significance.
