John Mathai  
Dr. John Mathai (1886-1959 ) A Biography
Published in July 2000
Price – Rs.100/--
ISBN –81-7748-008-1
We live in a time when biographies of  less mortals appear even in their life time .It took nearly three decades after Dr.John  Mathai’s death for somebody to think about writing his biography. It is Strange and sad that such a man of integrity and brilliance is easily forgotten. Not much is written about him . Normally it is not that tough to write a biography of a great man. In the case of John Mathai things are different. He had a habit of destroying correspondences with friends, family and also in connection with his own work .Hence Dr.Haridasan’s effort in bringing out this volume deserves special attention.
