Description
About the book

They say a daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart. In Legacy, noted journalist and author Sudha Menon brings forth a rare collection of personal and evocative letters from parents to their daughters. Through their fearless approach to life, love, and overcoming oblstacles, these icons from the world of business, arts, films, food, and sports share with us their experience and wisdom as they pass them on to their daughter.

Deeply moving and thought provoking Legacy is a remarkable collection of life lessons that will delight and inspire at the same time.

 

About the Author

Sudha Menon is the bestselling author of Leading Ladies: Women who inspire India and a journalist with over twenty years of experience. She has worked with the Independent, the Hindu business line, and Mint, Writing on politics, Women, health, and business.

Sudha is the founder Get Writing a workshop for potential writer, and is also passionate about Writing in the Park, an imitative that she has started to get people out of their homes and spend time in the outdoors, writing in public parks and gardens. Sudha has been invited to several educational institutions and corporate campuses as a speaker where she talks to women’s networks about leadership and diversity issues. She lives in Pune with her family.

 

Foreword

Sudha’s book, a collection of letters from inspirational men and women, is a reiteration of my belief that our parents can be our best teachers mine certainly have been for me and my two brothers. It is from our parents that we internalize the values that shape our lives.

N.R. Narayana Murthy’s letter to his daughter Akshata is a delight to read he comes across as a doting father who is keen that his daughter benefits from the wealth of his own daughters about their ancestors and their great accomplishments. It is heart worming to read his thought about the struggles of women at work and how he is inspired by them.

Only a truly global leader like Narayana Murthy can tell his daughter to become a citizen of the world in every sense while simultaneously asking her to be a proud Indian, wherever in the world she lives.

Looking back at my own life after all these years, I can say without hesitation that I was lucky to have been born to my parents, the two extraordinary individuals who shaped my life and made me what I am today. I owe them everything that I have achieved.

Although my father is no more, he remains my strongest source of inspiration. Through my letter to my parents, I hope to convey what they mean to me.
