Chairman’s Biography Unveiled in Chennai

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 04 Feb,2014

Ms. Preetha Reddy, Dr Reddy’s daughter and Managing Director of Apollo Hospitals, said the book was two years in the making, with the author spending a lot of time with her father, family members, associates and others who knew him. The biography contains several sepia-tinted photos of Chairman, his parents and family from the early days.

The story begins from Aragonda, a small village in Andhra Pradesh, where Dr Reddy spent his childhood, and traces his journey from the small town to a medical school in Madras to a flourishing cardiology practice in the US. At the age of 50, he returned to India at the prodding of his father to make a difference to the country. Setting the tone to the event was a scintillating performance by noted dancer Alarmel Valli to Saint Annamacharya’s Srimannarayana. Theatre actor and director, Aamir Raza Husain, read passages from the book.

Inspirational speaker, leadership consultant and author Devdutt Pattanaik shared his experiences of working with Dr Reddy during his early days as a medical practitioner. Expressing his gratitude to his late parents, Dr Reddy hoped that whatever imprints he had left in the field of healthcare would endure. The book is priced at INR 899.
