Following the recent launch of his autobiography, ‘Guru – A long walk to success,’ Kenyan, Narendra Raval and author, Kailesh Mota, commenced their booking-signing tour at Mombasa’s Shree Mombasa Brahma Samaj on 5th October, organised by RaM Events – Event Planners. It was attended by various dignitaries, including Mombasa County Governor – Hassan Joho, the Assistant High Commissioner of India – Shyam Dewani, the Chairman of Shree Mombasa Brahma Samaj – Bharat J Bhatt and the chairmen and committee members of the various Asian communities in Mombasa.

The following day saw the start of the Nairobi leg, at the Junction Mall.

The book, broken into six parts, narrates how Raval, also known as Guru, grew up and with limited resources, blossomed into a perennially successful man with a US$ 400 million industrial empire to his name. Guru also featured among the top 50 richest men in the Forbes Africa 2015 list.

The book-signing provide an opportunity for readers to receive an autographed copy as well as interact and engage with both, the author and the subject, gaining a deeper understanding of the genesis of Raval, the Founder and Chairman of Devki Group of Companies.

“The book provides an inspirational narrative for the young population to seek hope from… Three key elements captured in the book are: never giving up on your goal, lack of or limited access to education does not spell misery – success can still be achieved with determination and hard work and finally, grow businesses organically and not banked on borrowing,” said Raval.

Kenya’s reading culture is not as vibrant as in other nations – as pointed out by Raval – but the book presents another opportunity for readers to benefit from and, as Mota hoped, to have featured in the country’s curriculum or at university level.

“It is not about making profits, but inspiring future generations,” added Mota.

Part of the proceeds from the book sales will be channelled into charitable projects for African children. Raval’s family, has over 20 years, supported various causes, including the education of 700 children as well as significantly contributing to ISKCON Foundation’s ‘Food for Life’ program.
