BOOKS AND AUTHORS - September 2020

Rajnath Singh Launches Book 'A bouquet of Flowers'

  • Defence Minister Rajnath Singh launched a book written by Dr. Krishna Saksena- the first lady to get PhD, way back in 1955 from Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh.
  • "A bouquet of flowers", the ninth book authored by the senior English Professor, was launched at the New Delhi residence of Singh.
  • Through this book, Dr. Saksena presents a series of anecdotes that allow the reader to extract the moral of the stories, rather than a didactic imposition of her views. Rather than push the reader down a path she allows the reader to guide themselves as they contemplate the essence of each of the anecdotes she has selected for them.
  • The book has been designed to allow the readers to travel their own journey and arrive at their own very personal realisation and be inspired by it. I hope the readers enjoy the book and relate with it.
