The Central Theme of the Multiverse
The Death of Krishna and the opening of Kalyuga was part of my short story collection The One Who Stood Against Shiva and Other Stories.
This has been the central theme around the Multiverse, the stories are written in modern world where we meet non-humans, magical creatures hiding in plan sight. We see a lot of individualistic creatures, like a Gandharva attempting to become a post-man because he things its the most challenging task in the world. Or a Apsara, unable to go to heaven, joins a brothel where atleast her body is appreciated etc. These characters even though find their origins in Mythology, no attempt is made to change the 'original' context, features and aspiration. The multiverse spreads across space and time blending seamlessly fantasy, thriller, adventure and science fiction.
Now for the bonus feature, you can go deeper into the multiverse with some stories about few characters that I have created.

Trisha (Also known as Halahal)
Born out of harassment of a village feud, Trisha underwent a very deep psychological and physical change. After burning down her entire village she went ahead to turn into the greatest mercenary out there. She is a hero or a villain depending on what is larger, her mood or money.
Dharma (Also known as Death)
I personally like Dharma very much. He is part of the brother-sister family of incorruptible Dharma and his highly mischievous twin sister Karma. His character is inspired from Dharmaraj, the God of Rules in Hindu Mythology. A highly misunderstood but nevertheless incorruptible ruler of Death, goes around performing his duties against those who do not wish to die. Hates Asuras for their practice of Necromancy (bringing dead to life). Dharma has no gender and has been seen in multi-form at different points of time.
