BANGALORE BOOK FESTIVAL 2008


Recently  I had been to " Bangalore Book festival"  along with  my wife, son and sister which held till 23rd November.





















































It was very good ..Books of different languages like Kannada,English,Hindi,Telugu,Malayalam,urdu,Tamil,Bengali and many other languages ........... were on display & sales.Many publishers,distributors had displayed books of different writers and on variey of topics from Literature,politics,sports,stories,autobiography,religion,health,wealth,mind,soul... Really it was like a festival for readers  & of course for sellers. There was a huge crowd.I could see people buying many books at a time...

We also purchased few books.





































Now a days we can see people talking about the downward trend in reading habits in people after the invention of modern media like Television (TV) & Internet.But this has proved wrong..!
I thought untill good writers are there ,untill readers are there no media can replace books which is having their own advantages compared to TV and internet

This type of book festivals should be conducted atleast once in every 6 months not only in Big city like bangalore but also in other districts also so that it can reach all places & even to a common man....
