|Author Deborah Bedford, Oindrilla Dutt & Father James at the Oxford Book Launch in Kolkata|
A book, Father, on the biography of our founder Rev. J.G. Stevens, OBE, was launched this year. It was after undertaking lengthy research that Australian author Deborah Bedford released the book in a series of events, about the extraordinary journey of Rev. J.G. Stevens of transforming the lives of many.
Oxford Bookstore and Calcutta Foundation hosted a book reading and discussion featuring renowned Kolkata personality, Oindrilla Dutt and Father James and a very interesting and engaging session unfolded amongst all present.
The book was also launched separately at an evening function at the ITC in collaboration with the Calcutta Foundation and many Udayan family, friends and influential business people were in attendance.
Udayan invited current and ex students and staff along with members and community to a function which coincided with the Annual General Meeting of Udayan.
Father was also unveiled at an international launch in Sydney, Australia, where over 100 of the crème-de-la-crème of Sydney turned out to learn more about the life and work of Father James Stevens.
Author Deborah Bedford was thrilled with the response - "I hope the book is used as a tool to spread the good word of Udayan around the globe."
