SHILLONG, May 7: Howrah-based Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Foundation has decided to publish the Arabic edition of the book Great Minds on India, authored by Shillong-based writer Salil Gewali.
The translation is currently being undertaken by an eminent Arabic scholar, Dr. Mohammad Ramzan Ali Miya, in Doha, Qatar, with editing by Hamdan Bin Rashid of Madrid, Spain.
This initiative follows the successful release of the book’s Urdu edition, which was formally launched by the Governor of Assam, Gulab Chand Kataria, in 2023.
Abdul Khalique, secretary of the Foundation, stated that copies of the Arabic edition would be distributed across Arabian countries to promote cultural exchange and showcase the esteemed literary heritage of Indian wisdom, as acknowledged by some of the world’s most revered intellectuals.
Furthermore, a Sanskrit edition of Great Minds on India is also currently being translated by acclaimed Sanskrit scholar Dr Baldevananda Sagar. Assisting him are NRIs Dr Annapurna Nori of Los Angeles and Usha Jaya Raman from North Carolina, USA.
Author Gewali notes that Dr. Sagar, a distinguished scholar, and journalist who previously worked at Doordarshan and All India Radio, has been translating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat into Sanskrit for the past eight years.
