Biography of BK Birla, wife released

Kolkata: A biography of industrialist Basant Kumar Birla and his wife Sarala was released here on the couple`s 69th wedding anniversary.

The 252-page `Life Has No Full Stops`, written by Rashme Sehgal and a foreword by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, tells the story of how Birlas set up a formidable business empire spread across the globe.

Speaking on the occasion, evergreen Bollywood superstar Dev Anand said: "I have lot of respect for this couple. I have known both of them for a long time."

The book also recounts the special association that B.K. Birla had with Mahatma Gandhi and how Gandhi himself recommended Sarala to the Birla family, who were then on a lookout for a bride for Basant.

"We both are very happy. We do everything together. God is good," said Sarala Birla, standing beside her husband on the occasion.
