PUBLISHER'S CORNER

Ananya's tireless endeavours

Staff Correspondent

Noted publishing house Ananya has been in the business for over two decades. Ananya's proprietor Monirul Haque started the publishing business following his father's footstep.
Ananya has published over 1,500 books, including 37 by late writer Humayun Ahmed. Its publications boast a majority of famed authors of the country, including Muhammad Zafar Iqbal and Imdadul Haq Milon.
At this year's Ekushey Book Fair, Ananya has published “Samajik Byabsa” by Nobel Laureate Dr. Muhammad Yunus, among 75 books.  
It published Humayun Ahmed's first Himu novel “Moyurokkhi” and the novel “Nurjahan” of Imdadul Haq Milon.
At the fair, many readers picked up Professor Muntasir Mamun's volume “Dhaka: Smriti Bisritir Nogori” published by Ananya.
Apart from this, the publication house has published over 100 books on the Liberation War and several others on the Language Movement.
Asked why only a handful of books had been published on the Language Movement, publisher Monirul Haque said, “Very few writers have penned books on the issue, which explains the shortfall.”
