About The Author

Bharat Savur

Bharat Savur has juggled as many mass-media jobs as a juggler does balls. Radio (All India Radio and The Voice of America), Television (Production Assistant and presenter, Sports Round-up, Mumbai TV: one of the first to do so in 1972); Advertising: copywriter with Shilpi and ASP; Journalism (Deputy Editor, Debonair, Associate Editor, Gentleman Group); free-lance writer for a host of publications; fitness columnist for the Hindu Business Line; co-columnist with wife, Shalan Savur for The Deccan Herald and Prajavani; co-author with Shalan of the well-acclaimed book Fitness for Life; author of A Way With Words, a book which described his 40-odd years’ mass-media journey.His firsts include co-authoring the world’s first cricket-fiction (cri-fi) comic, Sunny the Supersleuth (featuring cricketer Sunil Gavaskar); and being in a team of TV pioneers that brought an educational cricket programme to India’s National Television: That’s Cricket anchored by cricketer Ravi Shastri, which he scripted and co-produced. The author holds that he has re-invented himself every few years in a mass-media career that is 40-odd years and counting. If so, ‘The Long Road to Nowhere: From Is to Bliss’ is his latest avatar. To those that know the author, this is his biggest surprise (and perhaps, even shock!) Bharat, a born-again seeker/questor/spiritualist? Hey! who is he kidding? And believe it or not, this re-invented and rediscovered writer is also a fitness teacher! But, seriously, the author takes this ‘almost spiritual’ autobiography as one of his best works ever. And finally wishes that you find it so too.
