Ever wondered how your electricity bill is made and what the laws that go into
it are, what the purpose of your life is, the reason that you are stressed out,
or even what goes into making a sumptuous dish of paneer? For answers, look no
further than the Keshav Memorial High School. But look for them before the 12th
of December, and between 1400 and 2030 hours. It has nothing to do with the competence
of the faculty at this school, nor are the timings its working hours. This is
where the annual book fair of our city is being held, for the 15th year in a row.
This is not just a book fair, it's a bonanza of knowledge neatly lined up on shelves.
There are books everywhere you turn - from huge volumes to tiny booklets, there
is material on almost every subject under the sun. This is the ideal place for
everyone hunting for books. With over 50 stalls set up and with each catering
to a particular subject, you are bound to find exactly what you are looking for.
There's everything: medicine, law, philosophy, religion, sports, children's books,
fiction, cookery… the list never ends.
The participating stalls are from all over India - S Chand, Oxford Press, Asia
Law House, Omkar's, JAICO, Ramakrishna Math Publications, The Hindu, Bookpoint
and many others have done their bit to make this fair as complete as it can be.
One of the stalls stands out for the place it comes from - a publisher from Lahore
has made it all the way from across the border to set up a stall here!
With heaps of discounts and special offers, this has to be the best place to buy
a book. For bookworms, this fair might just be too much to take.
