One of the touching responses to the Marathi edition came from Waman Jog, an ’80 year young’ retired engineer who does voluntary work for an NGO, Students’ Welfare Association located in Pune. He wrote:
Recently at random I picked up Marathi translation of your book ‘Stay Hungry Stay Foolish’. After reading that book I was so much impressed that I donated a copy of the book to the institution as I felt that it is a MUST for all the students.
Not only that I told my grandson and granddaughter in law, who are both IT engineers and also my granddaughter who is studying E & TC in COEP at Pune, that they must read that book.
Wonderful to see that age is no bar, when it comes to the appeal of ‘Stay Hungry Stay Foolish’
