“Vietnam and Com. Ho Chi Minh are the two most well-known and popular names among the people of India, who had been the focal point among the intellectuals and political activists since the later half of the last century, particularly between fifties and seventies. This was the period when too much was written in the various Indian languages about Ho Chi Minh, particularly in West Bengal where numerous poems and essays eulogizing Ho Chi Minh were written; Ho Chi Minh’s Works and his Prison Diary was translated into most of the major languages of India and were highly appreciated by the readers. In fact, Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh had become synonym to each other.”
The publication “Ho Chi Minh - A Messiah of Peace, Independence and Happiness” was written to mark the occasion of the 120th birth anniversary of Ho Chi Minh (19/5/1890 – 19/5/2010). In the little book written by the Indian author Geetesh Sharma, readers can find out Ho Chi Minh’s life and his sentiment to international friends, particularly the Prime Minister of India Nehru and the love that Indian people gave him.
The publication is now available at the Library of the Vietnam National Museum of History (No. 25 Tong Dan Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi). We would like to inform readers!
