The tech friendly new generation that prefers to read with the help of latest gadgets instead of holding a voluminous book in hands can now look forward to reading Bapu's books on iPhone, iPad, tablets or any android enabled phone.
Desai said they also plan to make available as e-books those books that are out of print books. The trust will also ensure that the books are available on Amazon's kindle book reader for sale. On an experimental basis, the trust has put sample e-books on its official website for readers. "Till now, we have already converted Bapu's 20 books into ePUB and within the next one month a 100 more books will be ready. We have used the global standards for digital publications of these existing books,'' Apurva Ashar, who is handling the project at Navjivan Trust, said.
Sources said the trust is working on digital rights management (DRM) to control the access to copyright material using technological means.
"We are working over which of the Gandhi's books to be made available free of cost. Some of books and material will be made available free for readers of e-Books,'' sources said.
