My father, Mr. E.S. Ramanath had written a book in 1940, 74 years ago on sericulture Industry in Province of Bombay. None of his children knew of the existence of this book. My eldest brother, Balu, now 89 years old, who lives with his daughter in the U.S., learnt to use a computer recently. By chance, he stumbled on the existence of this book on Google in October 2014. We tried to find a copy of the book all over India, but failed. Finally, we approached the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. They had a copy! The lady there was kind enough to send a scanned copy. She also said there may be another copy in University of California, Davis. My niece's husband Dr. Raju Pande is a professor of Computer Science at Davis. He found a copy of the book in their library.
It was nothing short of a miracle! A book written 74 years ago by my father, of which we had no idea, was found in a library just five minute away from the current home my brother Balu, who had found about existence of such a book just a couple of months back!
