Dr Kalam delivers another bestseller

APJ Abdul Kalam is one of few writers of inspirational books have a huge following

Kalam, a former president of India, made his name as the man who drove India's ballistic missile program, spearheaded India's nuclear tests in 1998, helped design a coronary stent,then a tablet PC meant to help health-care workers. But the odd mixture of never-say-die attitude helped him become a role model for many Indians.

Which is why Rajpal Publishing, when it had trouble choosing a title for his latest work, could turn to a huge pool of potential readers, thousands of whom responded and picked Forge Your Future.

These fans were well aware of Kalam's humble beginnings and rise to fame, says Samir Khandwala, founder of iMusti, which is distributing the book in the US – in both paper and ebook form.

Rajpal, which has a strong stable of writers with backgrounds in Indian literature – such as Harivanshrai Bachchan, Munshi Prem Chand and Khushwant Singh – and national stalwarts such as V Radhakrishnan, a scholar who was India's second president; Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Narasimha Rao and Inder Singh Gujral, all former Indian prime minister.

It has also published Abode of Truth, by Narendra Modi, India's current prime minister.

Khandwala's US-based iMusti wanted an alliance with India's leading publishers, and there were few that could compare with Rajpal.

“The intent was to bring India's top quality content (over),” says Khandwala. I met Pranav (Johri, marketing director at Rajpal and Sons) and our vision matches.” The result has been the first set of ebooks in Indian languages.

With this, Kalam's latest and arguably his best effort, the patnership aims to bring the best of a resurgent India's ideas to an audience not limited to the subcontinent.

"Despite the fact that I spent my childhood in Rameswaram, an isolated island in the south of India, I could get educated, find a job and overcome many obstacles to become the President of my country. If I could overcome all the hardships and achieve what I have, so can you or anyone else. It does not matter where you start from or what you have achieved till date, the important thing is that from this point onwards, you decide what you want and work towards creating your own future. This is the message I want to convey through this book and if it can inspire even one young person to achieve his or her dream, I will feel that my effort has been truly worth it. In the last fifteen years I have interacted with more than 16 million youth, in face-to face meetings, through emails and over Face- book, and wherever I go I am asked questions. Everyday I receive about 300 emails and spend two hours reading and answering them. This book is based on the questions that I have been asked over the years. In their questions, people are mostly seeking solutions to problems that they are facing in their lives. Answering these questions, I realized that what we call problems may probably be a result of the way we 'process' events and sit- uations in our lives and everything that happens in our world. 'Process' means the way we perceive and think about them. If we could change the way we 'process', then we could possibly change the way we think about our problems and hence also about their solutions. I believe it is possible to do so and that is the underlying theme in my answers. My answers are based on what I have learnt from my own experiences of life, and from reading books and my interactions with political and spiritual leaders. The replies in my book are presented in a way that they provide a generic message for any one who may be undergoing a similar problem in his or her life.

iMusti broadens appeal to Indian culturati

  • 23 Dec, 2013

Entertainment portal iMusti.com which forayed into the eBooks market last year, offering regional titles for the first time in digital format, has just expanded its collection to 5000 titles. This California-based started with the idea of creating a social hub for Indian music enthusiasts worldwide. It has grown into a huge platform with over 2,000,000 songs and 26,000 albums.

iMusti streams and sells only licensed Indian content. Founder and CEO Samir D Khandwala aspires to build the most comprehensive archive of Indian audiovisual entertainment. “We are the first digital company to offer audio, video and books on a single platform. In fact, iMusti.com is the first one to offer regional eBooks in India and overseas,” he says.

Gems in junk

iMusti began in 2007 with an invitation from a group of music enthusiasts to make quality content available to everyone. It is more or less platform-agnostic as users can access it on computers, tablets, mobile phones – both Android and iOS – and even the Samsung Smart TV. They also have a customisable iMusti Radio.

When Samir and his team set out in search of “some of India’s most treasured harmonies”, they stumbled on something else. “We found that along with highly coveted music lying unheard in dusty records and cassette tapes, there were also books written by ancient philosophers, poets and romantics gathering moss in tiny shops in the heart of cities like Calcutta and Bangalore,” Samir recalls.

That prompted them to reshape their platform to include literary masterpieces in Indian languages. As not enough regional content is available on digital stores, this was an opportunity for them to create a new attraction on their portal by fulfilling an unmet need.

Pirates at bay

The biggest challenge for iMusti, besides sourcing the right sort of content, has been piracy. A study by Envisional, experts in digital piracy intelligence, found a massive increase in pirated content in the last two years. Envisional director of Piracy Analysis David Price wrote: “In November of 2011, we saw 297 million infringing users. By January 2013, that figure has grown to 327 million unique internet users, who are accessing infringing content at least once a month.”

To tackle this, Samir says iMusti.com has been spreading awareness on the importance of using licensed content. They would continue to bring high-quality legal content for its users, he says.

Another challenge they face currently in the eBooks space is the reluctance of publishers to adopt the digital format. “There are also challenges related to accurately converting books in some languages without grammatical errors,” he says.

Growing pangs

Their target market has been people of Indian origin across the globe. With Indian classical music and Bollywood films becoming popular among non-Indians as well, iMusti’s market is also expanding. “At present, this content is popular in the 30+ age group. India and North America are our primary target markets and the rest will catch up soon,” Samir says.

Amazon is one of their distribution channels, and the aim, Samir says, is “to be the No. 1 seller for Indian content on Amazon”. In 2014, we can expect more content and more distribution channels for it. In the first quarter of 2014 itself, they will add five more languages to their books category, Samir says.

To mark the 144th birth anniversary of the Mahatma, Harijan – A journal of Applied Gandhism (1933-1956) was launched by Professor Rajmohan Gandhi, who is also the great grandson of Gandhiji.

Talking about Gandhiji, he said that the newspaper was launched by the Mahatma when he was in jail.
