PREVIEW FOR THE HYDERABAD BOOK FESTIVAL
Arguably the first bibliophile was created when Lord Vishnu swallowed the Vedas to save them from a pralaya and the asuras. Now with that kind of a forefather things can only get better, and from papyrus to Gutenberg to discount sales, the Lord's inventions have only kept getting better for the breed he spawned. After a year of almost continuous discounts, here's the grand finale for bibliophiles in town!

The Hyderabad Book Festival, organized by the Hyderabad and Secunderabad Publishers and Booksellers Association at the Nizam College grounds, will take place for a month, and to mark the event several programs such as interactions with eminent writers, editors and English language teachers will also take place.

The festival is being held as part of the 16th annual book fair celebrations of the association. More than 100 publishers, book distributors and newspapers will take part in the festival. Among the book publishers and distributors are majors like Higginbothams, Allied Publishers, Orient Longman, Arkbird, Visalandhara, Sterling Group of Companies, S Chand & Company, the Krishnamurthy Foundation, the Telugu Akademi, the Telugu University, Pustak Mahal, Macmillan, Prajasakti Book House, Vikram Publishers, Holy Faith International, Prentice Hall of India, Navneet, Cambridge, Jaico, Sage Publications, Iskon, Publications Division and the National Book Trust of India.

Besides publishers in English, those in regional languages like Hindi, Telugu and Urdu are also taking part. Several cultural activities like painting competitions, elocution contests, book releases, quizzes, seminars, book reviews and book releases will be held during the period. A 10 percent discount will be offered on selected books during the festival.

A seminar titles "English For Practical Purposes" by CIEFL will be held on November 28.
