The autobiography of Dr Subhash Chandra ‘The Z Factor: My Journey As The Wrong Man at the Right Time’, was launched on 20 January, 2017 at Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official residence in 7, Race Course Road, Delhi.

Felicitating Subhashji on his autobiography, co-written with journalist Shri Pranjal Sharma, the prime minister said:

“It takes courage to write an autobiography, even more so when one is so young.”

PM Modiji also recalled his association with Subhashji’s father, Shri Nandakishore Goenka, as a young political activist in Hisar, when he would frequent the charitable institutions set up by the latter.

PM Modiji also spoke about Subhashji’s support for Ekal Vidyalaya, an NGO that runs around 52,000 single-teacher schools in remote corners of India.

In his speech, Subhashji spoke about his extraordinary journey, starting out as a young boy of 17 from Hisar in Haryana, with just Rs 17 in his pocket, who went on to build a media empire.
