Pune: Be it a book or a column, Sadhana publication is always known for its rational content that conveys strong views. But for the first time ever, the publication house has published a light-hearted book written by city based author Anand Latkar. The Marathi language book- 'Good Morning', is a compilation of humorous short stories and anecdotes that are a commentary on everyday city life, societal architecture and behavioral patterns of people.
Sadhana, known for its rational content, was founded by Sane Guruji and for a long time it was led by the rationalist, author and founder-president of Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti, Lt. Dr. Narendra Dabholkar.
On the decision to publish a light hearted book by the organisation, Vinod Shirsath, editor, Sadhana publications said, "It happened without any plans. We liked the content that author was offering and hence decided to publish it. We would like to publish the content that will be enjoyed by readers from all age groups. For starters, this year in Diwali we are coming out with a youth based magazine named 'Yuva' which will have suitable content for that age group. Twenty years back the average age of our readers was above 60; ten years back it came down to 50 and now it is about 40. After the recent chain of incidents, even the youngsters want to read what Dr. Dabholkar had preserved for so long."
Author of the book, Latkar says that the book is a monologue of his views on sombre incidents in a commoner's routine life but in a humorous way. He said, "Many hilarious incidents happen to us in our daily life but as we are busy in moving on. We hardly take a pause and have a laugh about it. Through this book, I have created this collage of incidents that will remind us about these incidents. I want the reader to stop and learn to look in a joyous way at the sad events in his life. I am glad I could publish this book with Sadhana Publication which is coming out with such a book for the first time."
