Chandigarh, May 26, 2017: The international coffee table book ‘Inspiring Stories of Successful Indian Personalities Worldwide – 2017’ was launched at a function held at the Chandigarh Press Club. Dr. Ketan Shukla, a leading Kidney Transplant Surgeon based in Ahmedabad and an inspiring story himself, was the Chief Guest. The book has been authored by Aneesh Bhanot and profiles 22 highly inspiring and successful personalities from across the world, including 5 from Canada, 2 from USA, 1 from UK, 1 from UAE and 12 from India (Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Chandigarh). The book is dedicated to Neerja Bhanot, the sister of Aneesh Bhanot, who gave up her life while saving hundreds of others during the hijack of Flight Pan Am 73.
According to Aneesh Bhanot, “The personalities have been carefully selected from different backgrounds and regions from all over the world and have one trait in common – a very inspiring success story. The book will be sent free to around 1500 universities, colleges and schools across India for placing in their libraries so that it could help in motivating our talented youth to create similar success stories in their lives. My hope is that students, both girls and boys, read the book and say ‘Oh, even I can do this in my life !’ Over the years, if the book is able to enthuse the youth in doing something meaningful in their life, the purpose would have been achieved. For this reason, the book will also shortly be available on the App ‘True Inspiring Stories’ for both Android as well as iOS phones and devices.”
