Harsh Snehanshu is the author of Because Shit Happened: What NOT to do in a start-up! (Random House India, 2013). After graduating in 2011, he had a year-long unsuccessful stint with entrepreneurship. In March 2012, after having quit his company, he embarked upon a whimsical solo journey across the country. He traveled for a year during which he covered twenty-three states, discovering India and a bit of himself.
In June 2013, he was selected for the Young India Fellowship, a prestigious one-year academic fellowship in liberal arts, which he is currently pursuing. He is a prolific short-story writer and is working on two projects right now: one, a short-story collection; the other, a travel book.
