Pune: A joint biography ‘Duo Incredible’ of Padma Shri Mrs. Lila Poonawalla and Mr. Firoz Poonawalla was released on 29th September, 2019 in the hands of Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar, Dr. S.B Mujumdar, Dr. K.H. Sancheti and Dr. P. C Shejwalkar. And messages from Mr. Rahul Bajaj and Mr. Nitinbhai Desai were read, as they were unable to participate. During the event, these dignitaries shared their memorable moments spent with Lila and Firoz, appreciating their contribution towards the society’s progress and wishing them a long life of togetherness.
This book is authored by Mr. Shriram Shinde. The Marathi version book named, ‘Agaadh Lila’ is authored by Dr. Vasanti Joshi.
Both the books have interesting flow describing the life journey of Lila and Firoz from the childhood to today. Their struggling, challenging, exciting, fun and fulfilling journey of personal, professional and philanthropic lives gets unfolded in these books.
Managing a mammoth charitable movement called ‘Lila Poonawalla Foundation’, which has supported more than 9000 girls since past 24 years is a significant part of their life journey. It is very unique education support on merit-cum-need based criteria provided to girl child, where in the child becomes an adopted daughter and Lila and Firoz become their Mom and Dad for life time.
Lila and Firoz Poonawalla started their life from scratch to achieve such a success. It is unusual that against tremendous odds, they continue carrying out such a massive philanthropic work. Their story is unique and both Marathi and English books are very pleasantly readable. It shows clearly that there is no substitute to hard work, commitment and passion.
Both the books ‘Agaadh Lila’ and ‘Duo Incredible’ are worth reading and are available at Lila Poonawalla Foundation office in Pune. The proceedings from the sale of these books would be donated to the Lila Poonawalla Foundation.
