Dainik Bhaskar Group has the launched the biography of its late Chairman Ramesh Chandra Agarwal on the occasion of his birth anniversary that fell on November 30.

The book, ‘The Man Who Created The Dainik Bhaskar Group’ has been authored by Bharathi Pradhan and was launched in Bhopal by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath in the presence of ex-Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and senior journalist Rajat Sharma.

In the book, the author details the awe-inspiring life of the visionary, describing him as a champion with “an unparalleled taste for risk-taking and a thirst for venturing into the unknown”, and as the man “who gave the Hindi newspaper a hitherto unknown respect”.

The wholesome story of the media baron who built the No. 1 newspaper in the country was written after meeting and interviewing over 40 different personalities who contributed personal nuggets on the man behind the businessman and what made his life such an inspirational success story.

An array of renowned personalities that include the Chairman of the Aditya Birla Group, Kumar Mangalam Birla; Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Kamal Nath; former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan; former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijaya Singh; stock market maven Rakesh Jhunjhunwala and Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora have embellished the book with their perceptive comments and hitherto-unknown stories.

The foreword of the book has been written by the mystic Jaggi Vasudev, known as Sadhguru.

“At a time when this nation was still lumbering under the colonial cross of double standards for English language and regional language news publications, this man boldly subverted the dominant paradigm, and for this we owe him credit and admiration. In my personal interactions, I saw a gentle but astute man and mind. This retelling of his life will certainly inspire many others,” writes Sadhguru.

Author Bharathi Pradhan said: “It gave me great pleasure to write this book. Because it was fascinating to do an inside story of how Mr Ramesh Chandra Agarwal went into state after state and, facing odds that would’ve made a weaker man do a U-turn and go back home, slayed the reigning No. 1 everywhere to establish DB as the premier newspaper of the country. It reads like a fairy tale, a page-turner with intriguing stories that will give inspiration to the reader and draw admiration from him. It is a book that will appeal across the board and find a connect with every reader.”
