An Author’s Word: Harsh Madhusudan

1. If not an author which other creative field would one find you in and why?

I think all entrepreneurship is creative. But in this context, if not an author – maybe a documentary maker. The idea is to get ideas

 

2. What does the written word mean to you?

 The written word, especially long form, still remains the best way to discuss and dissent, teach and learn with all the nuances of a subject intact.

 

3.Your personal favourite five authors in any                

Historical writing (be it economic, financial, cultural or political histories) – some interesting authors being Prasannan Parthasarathi, Sanjeev Sanyal, Vikram Sampath, Robert Allen and Arvind Sharma.

 

4.What is your favourite word, in any language, and how would you describe its meaning?

I am glad that the Japanese word “Ikigai” is becoming mainstream now because of the book by Miralles and Garcia. I think as more of us climb the Maslow’s pyramid, purpose and meaning becomes more important.

 

5.E-Book or physical book? What do you prefer and why?

Physical book(s) even though I read e-books all the time. There is hardly anything as fulfilling as being lost in a good old hardcover or paperback without any distractions. At the end of the day, you cannot fully replace that tangible presence.
