Narla V R Centenary Celebrations

Center for Inquiry India participated in the centenary celebrations of famous journalist humanist (late) V R Narla in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, India on 29 January 2009.

Dr. N. Innaiah, chairman CFI India as main speaker on the occasion explained how Narla V R evolved from angry nationalist to rational humanist during his sojourn in the media world. As editor of two famous Telugu dailies, namely Andhra Prabha from Chennai and later Andhra Jyothi Telugu daily from Vijayawada and Hyderabad, Narla gradually adopted a scientific approach in journalism.

Mr. Narla V R has shown to the world that as age grows persons can grow in mind also. He wrote critical works on Hinduism, with special reference to Gita and Upanishads. In this context Dr. Innaiah announced the coming publication of Narla`s The Truth about the Gita by Prometheus Books in USA.
