About Nanubhai Naik: 1

Nanubhai Naik is a phenomenon.
He is affectionately known as ‘Nagar Bapa’ (Father of Surat, a city in Gujarat state, India). Bagawatikumar Sharma, a distinguished author, poet, and journalist from Surat, lovingly called him ‘Nagar Bapa’ on his 83rd birthday. He recited his poem originally written in Gujarati in his honor in a packed hall :
Generosity, Love, Pride, Deep Warmth, 
Repeating heartfelt friendship towards all,
labor-loving, hard-working, diligent
produced a charming world out of nothing. 
Tilled soil, got the crop by farming,
Then went in the direction of word-sowing
Taking pen engrossed in writing,
Got slowly a smooth track of printing. 
And entire success emerged kissing feet,
Still an ardent desire in the heart
To give low-priced easily available books,
Established Books on the back of elephant.
Generosity, love, compassion, loyalty of work,
In a divine amalgamation is our Nagarbapa !
