Sourav Ganguly launches book on APJ Abdul Kalam

Kolkata, September 22, 2015 (Washington Bangla Radio):  Former Indian Cricket Captain Sourav Ganguly recently launched a book commemorating the life of Late APJ Abdul Kalam, the former President of India. The book, edited by Satyam Roy Choudhury (famous as the owner of Techno India Group), has been titled as ‘Pupils President of India’.  
Sourav Ganguly recollected his first meeting with the Missile Man of India, “I first met APJ Kalam back in 2003 when I went to Rashtrapati Bhavan to collect the Padma Shree award. I was amazed to see the simplicity in him. It is really a great honour for me to release a book on this great soul.”

Satyam Roy Chowdhury said on the occasion, “APJ Abdul Kalam has left back dreams in everyone and the undying inspiration to make those dreams come true. A surfeit of content has been interwoven to give this book a shape. To read through the pages will mean a journey through his life in entirety.”

“Besides Kalam’s own speeches and quotes, the book also contains literary tributes by scientists, academicians and students. It also has the interviews of his family members and a real time anecdote of his interment ceremony at Rameshwaram.” added Satyam  Roy Chowdhury.
