At the QI Group’s annual convention V-Con 2010 in Malaysia Vijay Eswaran took the opportunity to unveil his third book, titled 18 Stepping Stones, in the presence of 8000 participants from around the world that included customers and employees of the group and friends and business associates who were specially invited for the occasion.
18 Stepping Stones is a simple book that explores the concept of 18 simple steps beginning with the letter ‘A’, that were uniquely born out of the Thought of The Day programme. The idea behind the book is to encourage reflection and evoke a sense of awakening to one’s purpose in life to become a better individual, while attaining one’s desires in the process.
Datin Umayal Eswaran, Published of RYTHM House invited on stage QI Director Ms Donna Imson, to present the author with the very first copy of the book. Ms Imson, not just a colleague, but a close friend of the family looks upon Mr.Eswaran as a role model and a brother. She told the audience how honoured she was to have the opportunity of being there to witness the launch of this amazing book. “You can never be too old for someone to hold your hand and guide you. And through this book, Dato’ Vijay will hold your hand the same way he has he has held mine through the years,” she said.
Participants of V-Con were the first in the world to set eyes on this exclusive Publisher’s Edition which was released specially for V-Malaysia 2010. Mr.Eswaran said, “We didn’t go into great detail in this book. This book gives you the bite size version of the 18 steps, so that you can understand and grasp more when the full book is released later on in the year.
