Ekushey book fair

Ekushey book fair is being held at the Bangla Academy premises and Suhrawardy Udyan. Every day as the afternoon arrives, the bibliophiles crowd the fair ground. Needless to say, the fair promotes the habit of reading -- a practice that is feared to be on the wane with the arrival of electronic gadgets like computers and smartphones. But nothing compares to the smell of a newly published book and the very feel of the crisp paper. It is wonderful that, at the fair, readers can meet their favourite writers who sign the copies of their books. We hope that in the future, similar book fairs will be arranged in other cities of the country as well.
