Story of a self-publishing house

Sheela Reddy at Outlook recounts the story of RKN’s Indian Thought Publications:

Narayan finally decided to take matters into his own hands. Using the experience and contacts he gained through editing a short-lived literary magazine called Indian Thought (one of the founding fathers suggested it be called Indian Thoughtless; another suggested Indian Thought “because it’s the same thing”), Narayan decided to become his own publisher. He was reasonably confident about an Indian readership (“There was a certain amount of recognition and a little demand for my writing,” as he later told his biographer, N. Ram) but the headaches of printing, distribution and accounts were another matter altogether.

Literary Saloon, from whom I got the link, seems to be surprised that RKN ran his own publishing house; but, I think that was common knowledge among his Indian fans. Take a look!
