K.C. Agrawal, an electrical engineer and senior member of IEEE, USA, has had more than 33 years of experience in different capacities - in Academics, PSUs, Multinationals like Crompton Greaves and NGEF (a unit of AEG, West Germany) and then running his own industry, ECS (P) Ltd. for 24 years manufacturing switchgears.

He has authored three books all of which have proved quite popular. Two of these are related to his specialty. These are "Industrial Power Engineering and Applications Handbook" published by Butterworth Heinemann (a unit of Elsevier Science, USA/UK) and the other is its enhanced and upgraded edition "Electrical Power Engineering Reference & Applications Handbook".

However his crowning glory rests in his book [http://shapingindia.org/ Crusade India] , (called "Shaping India of Our Dreams"cite news |first=CR |last=Jayachandran |title= [http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/msid-209523,prtpage-1.cms Book review:Shaping India of our dreams]
work=Times of India |publisher= Times of India Group|date=2003-09-30 |accessdate=2007-08-09
] in its first edition) in which he discusses the problems India has been facing perennially. The value of his book lies in the fact, that like most other authors, he does not simply lament at India's problems, but offers cogent solutions too.

"Crusade India" has an interesting background. Some 18 years ago, greatly moved by the country's highly deplorable condition and the sight of poverty stricken people, he pledged to do something for the nation and steer the people out from their present sombre plight to a glorious future. "Crusade India" is a result of his dedication towards this cause and the first step towards realising these dreams.
