Born and brought up in Delhi, Arup’s association with books and publishing has been since childhood. After working as a Risk Consultant and Mitigation expert for a leading Insurer, he decided to hang up his boots and enter the world of publishing. The shift was but a logical extension of his background of both love for books and association with the industry. An MBA by education, he currently looks after the day-to-day operations at Srishti while driving the growth by diversifying into new genres and entering unexplored markets.
The industry is growing and has a huge potential. The emergence of digital platforms and availability of books across multiple devices will help it grow.
We hope to see a significant rise in readership, with an increase in levels of literacy and percolation of English as a language amongst the masses.
A good manuscript must have most importantly, a good story. Having a story which is new yet touches a chord with millions of readers is the most important but elusive ingredient. Quickly following it on the scale of importance is the language, easy to read and colloquial but at same time making grammatical sense. These are two of the most important things amongst others that we look for in any manuscript that we accept.
