In a harmonious blend of culture and corporate commitment, Mr. Hardeep Singh Puri, Hon’ble Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Housing & Urban Affairs, unveiled the “Chal Mann Vrindavan” Coffee Table Book today. This publication, supported by Indian Oil Corporation Limited, was launched in the august presence of Ms. Hema Malini, Hon’ble Member of Parliament & renowned film actress and classical dancer, Mr. Shrikant Madhav Vaidya, Chairman, IndianOil, Dr. Ashok Bansal, Author & Editor of “Chal Mann Vrindavan”, and Dr. Harivansh Chaturvedi, Director, BIMTECH and Publisher of the book.
“Chal Mann Vrindavan”, as the title evocatively suggests, offers readers a panoramic view into the rich heritage of the globally renowned temple-town of Vrindavan, located just 12 Km from Mathura. It is a heartfelt tribute to the spiritual town of Vrindavan, revealing its deep-rooted cultural and historical essence. The book takes readers on a journey through the sacred landscapes touched by Shri Krishna’s tales, celebrating the visionaries who brought these stories to life. It’s more than just a book; it’s an invitation to experience the soul of Vrindavan and be part of its timeless legacy.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Puri remarked, “Vrindavan holds a special place in the hearts of millions. This book is not just a collection of pages but a journey through the lanes of history, culture, and spirituality. I commend IndianOil for supporting such a noble initiative.”
Ms. Hema Malini, who conceptualised the idea of such a coffee table book, expressed her connection with the region, and said, “Vrindavan has always been close to my heart. This book beautifully captures its essence and I am sure it will inspire many to explore the spiritual and cultural depths of this sacred town.”
Mr. Vaidya, highlighting IndianOil’s association with the project, stated, “IndianOil has always been at the forefront of supporting initiatives that resonate with our cultural and national values. ‘Chal Mann Vrindavan’ is a testament to our commitment to preserving and promoting India’s rich heritage.”
Mr Vaidya also further mentioned that “While this book paints the portrait of Braj’s spiritual and cultural legacy, it simultaneously narrates IndianOil’s profound bond with Mathura. Home to one of our paramount refineries, Mathura stands as a testament to IndianOil’s unwavering commitment to excellence for over four decades. Here, the Mathura Refinery isn’t just an industrial unit; it’s a modern-day temple of sustainable innovation. Pioneering state-of-the-art technologies, championing greener fuels, and fostering a thriving eco-park are just a few of our milestones. Indeed, alongside the majestic heritage of Mathura, this coffee table book also beautifully encapsulates IndianOil’s relentless drive to bolster a more dynamic, prosperous and eco-friendly Mathura.
