Want your biography written? Here’s how!

There is one man who is keen on writing biographies of people like you and me. M.S.C. Rao, a retired banker who will write your biography if you want to be preserved for posterity. It is his passion to do so because “we should not live and die like animals. When we have the capacity to record everything, we should use technology and document our lives. And we should also have a small library of our forefathers’ history.

I read this bit of news in today’s paper, and found it interesting. I also recollect having heard about it earlier.

How does it work?
You make a request for a biography. Mr. Rao will then spend three hours documenting the spoken word and a two-hour video that is later edited to a half-hour DVD.

How much will it cost you for a biography?

Rs. 10,000. You will get your biography in the form 25 booklets with pictures arranged in chronological order and a half-hour DVD.

How long does it take?

Mr. Rao takes three months to complete an assignment.

How can you contact Mr. Rao?

26639873/9880383203. The email ( biographyco@hotmail.com) provided in the news write-up doesn’t work!

Oh and he assures total confidentiality.

    I think I should start my own blog or start keeping a dairy. I was visiting Blore few months ago and my dad read me my granddad’s family history book / dairy he kept which was very exciting. I am planning to get that one translated into english to keep to pass on to future generations.

    Ravi, so are you getting into the biography biz? :)

    Saaya, Rajesh, Lokesh, Carlos, what I thought when I read this piece of news was maybe I should do something similar for my parents and in-laws. Just as something to pass on by for my children.
