Coming Soon: Baba Ramdev’s Autobiography
A lot has been seen, heard and written about Baba Ramdev – the maverick yoga guru who has struck a fine balance between ascetic living and being a businessman by forcing some of the biggest consumer goods companies to sit up and take notice of his Patanjali Ayurved. Now, it is time we hear it all straight from the horse’s mouth.
Baba Ramdev has decided to pen down his autobiography along with Uday Mahurkar, deputy editor, India Today magazine. The book, to be titled as Being Baba Ramdev, will be published next year. Publisher Penguin Books India made an announcement about the upcoming project on October 13.
Uday Mahurkar is a well-known Ramdev ‘bhakt’. He has even written a personal essay ‘How Baba Ramdev changed my life’.
According to the official release by the publisher, Ramdev said, “A lot has been written about me by other people in the media. Now with my autobiography I will share with you the story of my life in my own words. I am delighted that Uday Mahurkar has agreed to write the book and that Penguin Random House India will be publishing it.”
His co-author in the book, Mahurkar was quoted saying, “‘I have been following Baba Ramdev’s life since 2002, and I am excited that he has chosen me to help him tell his story. Being Baba Ramdev will bring out lesser known facts about Baba Ramdev, his life and his work.”
