World Book Day

WORLD BOOK DAY 2019

April 23 is World Book Day and in its honour I took a trip to Dhaka’s unrivalled book buying and selling hub – Nilkhet. With rows after rows of alleys circling around each other and tiny lanes that lead to an unending number of shops, Nilkhet sells just about every type of book one could possibly want.

The fault in our books: Why are Bangla books poorly edited?

What does our editorial process lack? Why can’t we hire good proofreaders? The answer lies in the economics of it.
