The letter reads: “Shri Anupam Kher Ji,
“I was delighted to receive your book ‘Your Best Day Is Today’. It is a timely book given the recent developments over the past year.
“Right at the beginning of the book, I read that the title of the book is a phrase that your mother used to tell you everyday as a child. The wisdom of your mother, Smt. Dulari Ji, in filling such positivity and spirit of purpose in her child each day has clearly paid off in your achievements.
“It is clear that it was the same spirit that helped her as well as your family to overcome the moments of crisis that the pandemic brought into your lives.
“Individuals and families with such fortitude make up our nation. This is why we have been able to put up a united and resolute fight against Covid-19 and the disruption induced by it.
“Your book also reminds me of something I wrote in Exam Warriors. A mantra I gave to my young friends was that the ‘present’ is God’s greatest present.
“It is interesting that you have analysed the ‘new normal’ that we could see in the post-covid world from many angles. Whatever the structure of this ‘new normal’, I am positive that the role of India and Indians in the future of our planet will only become more and more crucial. This is where the call for Aatmanirbhar Bharat originates from.
“While that may be the global picture, one thing that shines through your book is the warmth of personal relationships and their importance. Especially in a time of churn and crisis, there is no greater strength than the love and trust of people around us.
“Your book is a message to humanity to be ever prepared for any challenge that life throws at us, to adopt a positive outlook and stay firmly rooted in the present.
“Heartiest congratulations for this compilation of your innermost thoughts and experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic. I wish your book all success and hope that readers enjoy reading it.
“Please convey my greetings and respect to your mother Smt. Dulari Ji.
“Best wishes for the good health and well being of all the members of the Kher family.” Kher published his first book The Best Thing About You Is You! in 2011, and his biographical work, Lessons Life Taught Me Unknowingly, in 2019. He wrote Your Best Day Is Today! last year, accounting his experiences during the Covid pandemic.
