Now, a Pranab Mukherjee Foundation

FORMER President of the US, Barack Obama, retired at the age of 55 years, the youngest president to retire at that age when the political life of many politicians starts. President of India Pranab Mukherjee will retire at the age of 82 in July 2017. Obama has launched barackfoundation.org. So, why should Pranab lag behind? Friends of Pranab da are keen to launch a Pranab Mukherjee Foundation. This foundation is likely to be propagate and educate the future generations on the ideals for which Pranab Mukherjee stood in his long political career. The foundation will also have various fellowships, and undertake research on foreign policy, defence policy, energy policy–areas where Pranab Mukherjee devoted his entire life. Faculty will comprise professors and lecturers. Many industrialists and business houses have begun to contribute from their corporate social responsibility funds. It is learnt that Omita Paul will be Chief Executive Officer of the foundation. Venu Rajamony, currently Press Secretary to the President of India, a career diplomat, may also join the foundation.
