NEW DELHI: Author and motivation Speaker Shiv Khera launched Rakesh Chopra’s first book- “A Cello for Bihar” at the oxford book store, New Delhi. This book was published by Prabhat Paperbacks.
Author Shiv Khera and Publisher Prabhat Kumar express their opinion on the book. Talking about his book Rakesh Chopra stated – A Cello for Bihar dedicates three things – A thriller musical journey, Motherhood and Deprived Childhood of children. The book takes you the journey of Khem Rao, who is born in a poor farmer family of Bihar on 1950’s hot summer days. His life’s script was expected to be no different from anyone else born into such circumstances. However, destiny had other plans.
This book charts the course of his extraordinary life. His childhood and youth are full of twists and turns. He gets orphaned and then kidnapped. His escape lands him on a ship and there his prodigious musical talent meets its mentors. This is a story of adversity and the hand of fate. Of love and heartbreak. Of trial and tribulations. Of turmoil and triumph. Of talent, hope and achievement. It exemplifies that it matters little where you start but where you finish.
On the launch of “A Cello for Bihar”, Shiv Kheda said that the book will actually bring a positive change in the lives of others as well as ourselves. He thanked the author heartedly that this book would promote positivity among the youth and also inspires the society to lead a better life. He also demanded from the publisher to launch it globally.
Prabhat Kumar, the manager of Prabhat Publications, thanked the author, the chief guest and all those who were presented at the event. He also said that every human being has a talent hidden within them; all they need is recognition and right guidance. The program was presided over by Associate Professor Amrita Bhalla of Jesus & Mary College, DU.
