MAIDEN COVER

The capital went ethnic in april. the first bengali book fair was a sell-out. plus, indo-fusion sizzlers scorched

What’s it: Bengali Book Fair, a first for Ranchi

Where: Mahendra Mahila College old campus on Circular Road

When: April 25-27

Hosts: Jharkhand Bengali Association (Ranchi chapter)

Mixed racks: Only one-fourth stall space had books, rest had saris and snacks!

Best-sellers: Books, by a long shot. The Publishers and Booksellers’ Guild that organises Calcutta Book Fair sourced a rich storehouse of books from various publishers. From all-time greats by Rabindranath Tagore and Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay to anytime reads like Satyajit Ray’s Feluda to contemporary fiction by Sunil Gangopadhyay, Samaresh Majumdar and Suchitra Bhattacharya, there was everything a Bengali bookworm could want!

Pages ahead: Tagore and Satyajit Ray were in such demand that stocks sold out. Many visitors on Day 2 returned home empty handed

Words apart: Apparels, food, competitions for children and musical programmes on all three evenings

t2 bookmark: Books of any vernacular language will live on only if children read their mother tongue! So, Harry Potter fans, try out Feluda or Tenali Rama, too!
