"Bodra authorized the following books in Varang Kshiti:"
The word "authorize" is closely related to "authority": To authorize a thing or an action is to permit it -- e.g., to permit the publication of a book. To author something -- almost always something written and of some significance -- is to create it. In this sense, "authored" is almost always just a pompous synonym for "wrote". If Bodra wrote these books, "wrote" is the right word. If he authorized them, it would be clearer if the article mentioned the type and scope of his authority. --Thnidu (talk) 03:02, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
