The Hush Post: The annual World Book Fair began at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi on Saturday. There are more than 1,500 stalls with 800 publishers participating in the fair which will continue till January 14. Though the early hours saw limited visitors, a huge rush thronged the venue later in the day.
Like every year, stalls offering children’s book appeared to be a favourite among visitors again this year. The Children’s Pavilion saw variety of short story books, syllabus books, cartoons and colour books as well as stationary products drawing a good crowd. Last year the fair had been badly hit by demonitisation. Organised by the National Book Trust (NBT) in association with India Trade Promotion Organisation, the fair is themed around environment issues such as climate change, global warming, and water pollution.
