The Indian Diaspora has won several laurels all over the world. To highlight their achievements, Amba Images International is coming out with a book ‘Worldwide Eminent Indians - The Living Legends’, which will be launched in early 2008 to coincide with India’s National Day.
The publication will include the names and profiles of 100 eminent Indians, nominated by Indians worldwide and selected by an expert panel. ‘Worldwide Eminent Indians (WE Indians) – The Living Legends’ will be an appreciation and recognition of the communities and culture of which these individuals are an integral part. It will serve as an inspiration for the youth of India and other nations.
Mohinder Puri, Editor-in-Chief of the publication, said, “The concept will become a global brand to Indians worldwide and will capture the imagination of millions. It will create a debate in and beyond India and generate pride through the achievements of Indians.”
Puri believed the project would help raise further the profile and status of India and Indians worldwide. He said, “Today, Indians and India are well recognised and ‘brand India’ has become popular through appreciation of its food, fashion, music, yoga, homeopathy, alternative lifestyle as well as Indian ethos, mythology, philosophy and entrepreneurial success.”
The book, to be published in 2008, will complement this popularity and bring out the special Indian traits through recognition of the values and principles of the eminent people. It will be supplemented by an interactive and participative website and by sustained publicity throughout India and countries with strong representation of Indian diaspora.
