KUALA LUMPUR: Entrepreneur Datuk Vijay Eswaran’s fourth book entitled On the Wings of Thought was launched at MPH Bookstores recently.
The book is a compilation of the author’s thoughts and quotations set against a backdrop of riveting photographs taken by him on his travels around the world.
“Vijay often has a lot of wisdom to impart, whether it is from a business point of view or a spiritual point of view, or even for personal development,” said Institute of Corporate Governance president Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas, who launched the book.
“I have interacted with him in this capacity before and, being a businessman myself, I appreciate his business acumen and his philosophical approach to life.
“So, I am very proud to stand here and acknowledge another aspect of his ability, that of an author.
“With this book On the Wings of Thought Vijay has not only reminded us that he is an author extraordinaire but also a very capable photo artist, with a remarkable eye for colour and composition.
“The pictures in this book are breathtaking, the words that accompany them are thought-provoking,” added Megat Najmuddin.
The book is published by RYTHM House Publishing Sdn Bhd.
