Book fair a break for new writers
Several new books have been launched at the fair, drawing the attention of readers and generating greater revenue for publishers, said some publishers to Dhaka Tribune. Journalist and researcher Zakaria Polash, who carried out his studies over two years in Kashmir, wrote a book called “Kashmir: History and Politics” about the conflict there between India and Pakistan, its internal dynamics, secular and Islamist politics, and history. Its publisher, Saeed Bari of Sucheepatra, termed it a unique book in Bangla with valid and reliable data, that would encourage new young writers to publish as well. Echoing other publishers and readers, Saeed said the fair is a platform that sustains the country’s literature. Md Shahadat Hossain of Annesha Prokashon said, every year, publishers at the fair publish the works of a number of new writers, as the fair is a good place to promote Bangla literature. New publications have received a significant response at this year’s fair. “Andolon Shongrame Bangladesh Chhatra League” by the current BCL secretary SM Jakir Hossain generated the highest revenue till date compared to other books published by Annesha Prokashon, he said. Chaitanna Publication brought out young author Moin Munstasir’s fourth publication “Sish-Mahal.” The poetry collection speaks out against the oppression and discrimination imposed by society and the authoritarian state. Osman Goni of Agamee Prakashani, also president of Academic and Creative Publishers’ Association of Bangladesh, is pleased with the flow of incoming debut publications and young authors, but also expressed concern over the insufficient and sorry state of many publishing companies regarding the editing and publishing of books. He called for the development of these companies for the betterment of Bangla literature and the publishing industry. Day nine of Amar Ekushey once again saw many book lovers, particularly children, visiting the book fair. A total of 125 new books were launched with 19 being formally unveiled at Bangla Academy on Thursday.
