From his birth in a village in Andhra to founding and running Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, now one of India's largest pharmaceutical enterprises, Dr. K. Anji Reddy's journey makes for an inspiring story. That story is told rivetingly in his own words in his memoir, An Unfinished Agenda. Dr. Anji Reddy became an entrepreneur at a time when India was woefully short of technology to manufacture many basic medicines.
Then, in barely three decades, the Indian pharmaceutical industry had grown to the point that India not only became self sufficient in medicine but also a supplier of affordable generic medicines to the world. Dr. Anji Reddy provides a ringside view of this remarkable transformation, with fascinating anecdotes about those who made it happen. The history of modern medicine is a gripping story of triumphs and failures. An Unfinished Agenda takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the science of medicine over the last hundred years and reminds us of the stark challenges that remain.
