Local Author Talk: Ram L. Chugh
Colonie resident and retired economics professor Ram Chugh will talk about his life and new book “Living To Learn and Learning To Live: My Journey Across the Continents and Glimpses into My Ancestry.”
From the publisher: “From the caste-like constraints of air force life and other hardships in India to professorial excellence and acclaimed public service in America, “Living to Learn” takes readers on a journey that illuminates the nature of being human and the noblest aspirations of spirit.
It is an inspiring story of overcoming adversity and striving for excellence, but also of humility, friendship, service, and ultimately, love.”
You may remember Professor Chugh from a few years ago when he spoke about his days in the Indian Air Force in the 1950s and his book “Against All Odds: How An Indian Airman’s Extraordinary Resolve Altered the Course of His Life.”
The program begins at 6:30 p.m.
