Chennai Book Fair




32nd edition of Chennai Book Fair kicks off tomorrow. Former President Kalam will be inaugurating the fair. The 10-day fair will comprise whopping 588 stalls. Year after year, number of stalls are increasing and it is near impossible to visit even 100 stalls in one visit. I guess I may hit it twice or even thrice to whet my insatiable appetite for books and of course loosen my purse strings in acquiring quite a few of them. Estimated 10 lakh visitors are expected to visit the fair. What with almost week-long Pongal holidays in store next week, the numbers may even be high. Personally I am looking forward to it as I seldom miss this annual event.

Wish I could have been there. But looks like I might be able to come to Chennai this summer - hopefully we can meet up then. By the way, I don't mean to be intrusive, but are you as young as your profile picture suggests?

Hari said...

Oh, I have the answer now! I see you are married; that must be your son then?

Krishnan said...

ha ha you got it right, it is my son Nikhil. I am 42 years young :-) Definitely buzz me up when you come down here, will surely meet.
