Irfan Izhar, packaging industry baron, and producer of the internationally acclaimed
documentary A Journey of Thousand Miles – Peace Keepers made a resounding debut as
an author with the launch of Samundar Samne Hai, a compilation of his reverberating Urdu

Amidst the august presence of Rekha Gupta (Jury Member, International Film Festival), Shri Ram Niwas Goel (Speaker of the Delhi Legislative Assembly), and many renowned personalities from India and UAE, the book was unveiled in a very vivacious event followed by Ghazal Evening at India Islamic Cultural Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.

Usually, successful entrepreneurs share their life journeys through autobiographies, but Irfan
Izhar has chosen poetry for this purpose. According to him, verses make a greater impact than plain messages, in one of the couplets, he says, “Samundar samne hai aur kinara door tar hai, humara paon ab is rah mein majboor tar hai” means though the sea coast is quite far, I will continue the voyage unflinchingly.

Speaking about his interest in films and literature, Izhar said, “Through poetry, I inspire others
for success and through business, I pave the path to success for them. My business translates the vision of an entrepreneur but the values of a poet which is sensitive as well as empathetic.” “Be it the A Journey of Thousand Miles – Peace Keepers directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinnoy (Academy Award recipient) and Geeta Gambhir or my upcoming film The Last Resort, a thriller starring Reecha Sinha, I always tried to showcase the intriguing aspects of life and its undaunted spirit to survive with dignity,” add by Irfan Izhar.
