This Author is Mastering the Skies, Racetracks, and the World of Literature.

Published

on

In the world of literature, there are authors who create, and then there are authors who defy conventions. Sudanand belongs to the latter category, a man whose remarkable life journey encompasses the skies, racetracks, and now, the world of words. His latest literary masterpiece, “Beethoven’s Last Symphony,” has captivated readers, offering a profound exploration of the human condition through a poignant story containing an equally touching nested narrative. Sudanand’s work is best described as an ‘existentially’ themed coming-of-age novel, comprising elements of a mystery, a Greek tragedy, a powerful emotional arc, historical events, and frequent allusions to the transcendental power of art, literature, and music. But who is Sudanand, the author behind this compelling narrative?

A Life in the Skies

Before penning his debut novel, Sudanand soared to great heights—literally. Commencing his flying training in 1995 at the tender age of 18, he went on to pursue a decade-long career with Jet Airways followed by another decade spent in Malaysia flying for Air Asia. Having amassed over 16,000 hours aloft, circumnavigating congested airways across the Middle East, India and South East Asia, Sudanand surely has many an interesting tale to tell. His expertise in aviation adds a unique dimension to his storytelling, infusing his narrative with an authentic understanding of the heavens that few authors can match, to say nothing of the fact that many of the ideas in the novel were conceived in the vicinity of the upper limits of the Troposphere!

Racing Towards Glory

But Sudanand’s life isn’t just about soaring through the heavens; it’s also about the adrenalin rush of the racetrack. With a passion for motorsport, he has participated in a staggering 160+ races in both India and Malaysia. His racing journey includes competing in single-seater formula race cars and saloon race cars, with an impressive record of 50+ podium finishes and 10 race wins. Sudanand’s pursuit of speed led him to the top three positions in the national championship on four occasions, including a sole national championship victory.

Entrepreneurship and Beyond

In 2021, Sudanand made a return to India, where he took on a new role as the Deputy Director of Ortho-One, a leading Orthopaedic hospital that his family founded. This foray into the world of healthcare demonstrates his versatility and entrepreneurial spirit. Sudanand’s ability to excel in diverse fields, from aviation to motorsport and now healthcare, speaks to his relentless pursuit of excellence.

A Symphony of Words

Amidst his whirlwind of achievements, Sudanand, a doting single parent to his teen daughter and an avid pianist, also found the time to nurture his literary talents. His debut novel, “Beethoven’s Last Symphony,” is nothing short of a literary symphony. Set against the hustle and bustle of Chinese New Year celebrations in, both, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, the novel delves into the existential churnings of human existence that emerge from having to deal with the certainty of mortality and life’s many uncertainties. Sudanand’s poetic and reflective writing style invites readers to ponder life’s intricacies and the human condition.

A Literary Triumph

“Beethoven’s Last Symphony” isn’t just a novel; it’s an intricate exploration of human existence. The story revolves around Zoey, a young high school student grappling with the absurdity of human finitude amidst the festive chaos just as there appear the hints of an impending pandemic. Sudanand’s deft portrayal of Zoey’s emotional turmoil draws readers in, making her a relatable and empathetic protagonist from the start.

As the narrative unfolds, Zoey’s discovery of an incomplete and dilapidated manuscript sets in motion a confounding mystery and a journey that transcends generations. Sudanand masterfully weaves together the present and various historical periods, interlacing Zoey’s quest with that of her ancestors’ past. The result is a symphony of an affecting three-part epic that resonates across time and cultures.

A Timeless Message

“Beethoven’s Last Symphony” leaves an indelible mark on the soul, urging us to seek and reflect upon meaning rather than the trivial pursuit of happiness, though without neglecting the potency and timelessness of love and the enduring power of art to transcend barriers. The book has garnered rave reviews, with critics praising Sudanand’s ability to seamlessly blend philosophy, culture, history, music, aviation, and the human spirit into a captivating and soul-enriching read.

In Sudanand, we find not just an author and a wordsmith but a true Renaissance individual who has mastered multiple realms—skies, racetracks, healthcare, and now, the world of literature. His ability to channel his diverse experiences, pursuits, and interests into his writing is a testament to his exceptional talents. As we dive into the pages of “Beethoven’s Last Symphony,” we are reminded that sometimes the most profound symphonies are composed not with musical notes and notations but with words, and Sudanand is, indeed, the virtuosic maestro behind this literary masterpiece.
