He has also worked in senior executive roles at companies like Procter & Gamble and the Boston Consulting Group and was named among Ad Age’s “Top 40 Under 40 executives” in the US.
In the first segment..…we discuss with Karan his upbringing in India and how it creates the perfect storm of structure and freedom to inspire his work as an author. He shares the 4-1-4 Theory and how it allowed him to be ‘goal-less’ during year-long sabbaticals and be able to rid himself of what he calls emotional materialism.
In the second segment, we dive deeper into his 4-1-4 Theory and how it directly affected the quality of his newest book; The Yoga of Max’s Discontent. Discussing the arc of expression that his first two novels follow and how when he “dissolved himself completely” was he able to be truly free as an author.
