P P Ramachandran's book reviews in FPJ: 52 Reviews in 52 Weeks
P P Ramachandran’s book reviews in FPJ
Shri P P Ramachandran’s (fondly called PPR) review of the book "An Unbeaten Century-------100 years of Karur Vysya Bank" appeared in the Free Press Journal on December 31, 2017. With the publication of the review of "An Unbeaten Century," PPR has added another unbeaten record to his cap. This was his 52nd book review published in Free Press Journal in the year 2017 - 52 book reviews in 52 weeks. PPR deserves all praise for his achievement especially at 80+ age. It shows his enthusiasm to pursue the ‘hobby’ he chose for himself as a teenager and his commitment to reading and writing. On a personal note:
Congratulations, PPR Sir
This must be a repeat performance during the year 2017, as your Book Reviews started appearing in FPJ long ago. I'm not trying to dilute the significance of the reason for celebration, as the latest year in which the uninterrupted 52 was scored, your 81st HBD was celebrated by your loving daughters.
We are proud of you.
I'm one of the 50 odd (maybe more) Exrbites whose books were reviewed by you. Let me repeat what I felt after reading the review of my book: "The review is more professional, brings out the content and purport of the book in much lesser space"
Here, I remember with gratitude, your promise to review my second book also. Your blessings will continue to be an encouragement for me to share my thoughts in public.
Many of us start our day reading PPR mails.
Best Wishes and Warm Regards
