A Book Launch: Kolhapur to Beijing

We had a book launch earlier today in Bangalore.

Nisha Millet, Hakimuddin, Virdhawal Khade, Mr. Ashok Kamath, Managing Trustee Pratham Books and Mala Kumar releasing ‘Kolhapur to Beijing – Freestyle.

Pratham Books launched their 150th title “Kolhapur to Beijing—Freestyle!”, amidst great excitement and fanfare. The book was released simultaneously by Virdhawal Khade, Olympians Nisha Millet and Hakimuddin Habibulla , Ashok Kamath [Managing Trustee, Pratham Books] and the book’s author Mala Kumar.

In a run up to the launch, Pratham Books had engaged in getting children to wish the swimmer before he proceeded to Beijing. Over 32,000 children and adults sent wishes through post, email, and also posted messages on the Pratham Books website and blog site. A 164 ft (50m) long greeting card carrying these messages was presented to Veer. It was a heartening sight to see young children holding up the card for Veer and wishing him luck.

A nostalgic Veer said, “I’m very grateful to Pratham Books for having brought out this book, it brings back so many memories which would have otherwise been lost forever.”

    I’m not sure if this is where you take requests, but I’ve been watching your screen casts for a long time. I have been trying to create one of those trendy web backgrounds with the thin diagonal lines that add some texture to a gradient but can’t make it look right. Is this a tutorial idea you’ve considered? fiverr is probably the most discussed marketplace on online these days. The website lets a supplier anything at $5. For a huge variety of suppliers, this website makes their bread and butter. However, according to the top suppliers, the website is more about promoting the solutions, not items. That means, you have to perform actively to make some money on fiverr. But some impressive suppliers have converted this great visitor’s website into their own residual earnings turbines. Here you will discover some impressive concepts on how you can use Fiverr to make reasonable residual earnings online.
