Dr. Bhuvan Lall, an award-winning filmmaker, international entrepreneur, motivational speaker and author, has carved a niche for himself in the global entertainment industry over a career spanning 30 years and three continents. With two critically acclaimed feature films, 35 documentary films, and numerous high-profile events under his belt, Dr. Lall is a stalwart in his field. His significant contributions also include leading a multi-billion dollar Indian conglomerate in Beverly Hills, California, and establishing the largest trade body in the Indian media sector as the Executive Director of the Indian Broadcasting Foundation.

‘The Great Indian Genius Har Dayal’ delves into the life of Har Dayal (1884–1939), a pivotal yet often overlooked figure in Indian history. The book uncovers the story of this Stanford University lecturer, who was linked to the 1912 assassination attempt on Viceroy Lord Hardinge in Delhi. This dramatic event echoed the Ghadr of 1857, challenging the British Empire’s might and inspiring the Ghadr Party in California.

In his book, Dr. Lall sheds light on Har Dayal’s contributions to Indian freedom struggle, predating the efforts of more widely recognized leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. Har Dayal’s intellectual prowess and revolutionary spirit are brought to life in this meticulously researched narrative, aiming to reclaim a lost chapter of Indian history.

During the event, Dr. Lall’s accomplishments and his dedication to creating content with a global appeal and an Indian soul were highlighted. Known for his powerful and dramatic storytelling, Dr. Lall continues to inspire audiences worldwide with his lectures on leadership and heroism, focusing on the Indian freedom movement from the arrival of Vasco da Gama in 1498 to the end of European imperialism in 1961.

The book launch was not only a celebration of Har Dayal’s legacy but also a testament to Dr. Lall’s lifelong commitment to preserving and promoting Indian history and culture on a global stage. As attendees gathered in the picturesque locale of Saint Tropez, the event underscored the enduring impact of Har Dayal’s genius and the timeless relevance of his revolutionary ideals.
