Author: C Subramaniam
Editor(s): K S Subramanian
Publisher: Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan
ISBN/UPC (if available): N/A
These articles reflect Shri C Subramaniam's qualities of head and heart: quintessential patriotism; a disciplined and incisive mind; a deep knowledge of the subject under consideration; a well-considered vision about the country's development and future; a passion for details, but with the larger picture always in view; a profound respect for the country's heritage in harmony with science and technology; an uncompromising commitment to integrity and a companion anguish at the specter of falling values.
This book contains a selection of articles and major speeches of late Bharat Ratna Shri C Subramaniam. Many of the articles had appeared in The Hindu and in the Bhavan's Journal column entitled A Letter from the president. Endowment lectures, Convocation addresses and Policy speeches also adorn this book. During the sunset phase of his life, I venture a suggestion to Shri C S about such a volume; it was only after a lot of persuasion that he went along with the idea.
