Book Launch of "I'm Possible" by Dr K. Hari Prasad

Dr. K. Hari Prasad, President, Apollo Hospitals, wrote his auto-biography and launched it today in the midst of family and friends in a glitzy event at the Taj Deccan. Hari was my skipper at the Under 22 tournament in Trichur in 1983, and I have immense respect for him as a person and a cricketer as do so many of the cricketing fraternity. He has had an intense journey and has recently survived cancer, lost 50 kgs, gave up tobacco addiction and is now looking thirty years younger than his 55 years. Hari's story is worth telling and I am glad he wrote it.
Book launch by a host of celebs - Hari's father Dr. KVR Prasad, Mahender Reddy, Dr. Sangita Reddy, PV Sindhu, Sanjana, Ananya, Ramachandriaih, Mohammed Mahmood Ali, Kiran Kumar Reddy, Hari Prasad, Dr. Pratap Reddy, Md Azharuddin, Gautam Sawang, CV Anand among others
Mahmood Ali, Dy Chief Minister, P.V. Sindhu, Azharuddin, Kiran Kumar Reddy, Dr. Pratap Reddy, Dr. Sangita Reddy, CV Anand were some of the celebrities who graced the occasion.

 I contributed a few lines to the book and was pleasantly surprised when I was asked to read a few lines. Thanks Hari, it was an honour.
