The Foundation General Secretary Sri. Eby J. Jose has written a biography of the late president under the title -
' K.R. Narayanan Bharathathinte Suryathejassu '.
It is written in Malayalam, in the mother tongue of Dr. K.R. Narayanan. This book traces the not-so-rosy paths through which this great man had to travel.
About his life and its message K. R. Narayanan said :
"I see and understand both the symbolic as well as the substantive elements of my life. Sometimes I visualise it as a journey of an individual from a remote village on the sidelines of society to the hub of social standing. But at the same time I also realise that my life encapsulates the ability of the democratic system to accommodate and empower marginalised sections of society."
