A feast for book worms

From a modest beginning with 22 stalls, today the Chennai Book Fair has become a major calendar event in the city. With 777 stalls and around 50,000 plus visitors the book fair has stirred the reading habit of the city. Spread over 2 lakh square feet at the YMCA College of Physical Education, Nandanam, books from various languages and subjects were stacked. “About 7 lakh free tickets were distributed to school students and all books were sold at a 10 per cent discount to encourage people to read books,” said Meenakshi Somasundaram M, president, Booksellers and Publishers Association of South India (BAPASI). Keeping in tune with the trend, the organisers have created a mobile app compatible with both apple and android phones that provided daily updates on the events and also details of various books available at the fair. This year, the organizers have paid attention to even finer details: wheel chairs for differently abled, more food stalls, ATM kiosk and free transport from the Nandanam Arts College to the fair premises have been arranged. Tie up with Namma Auto and some call taxi operators and clear instructions and regulated traffic have made the fair an enjoyable experience.
