Tribute to Hanumantha Rao, Founder of Pragati Offset

Hanumantha Rao, founder of Pragati Offset and a stalwart of the Indian printing
Hanumantha Rao Pragatiindustry, passed away recently.
The 91-year old Rao was a multi-dimensional personality, doing everything – from working in fields to  working as a journalist, acting in films with N T Rama Rao  to participating in the freedom movement, for which he  was jailed for three years.
Rao started his printing unit Pragati Art Printers in 1962  with a small letterpress printing machine after which he never looked back. He is a recipient of many awards, including lifetime achievement and Sappi Elephant Award.
Pamex Team extends its deepest condolences to all in the Pragati family.
