Chhatrasangram at The 38th Kolkata International Book Fair

 Like every year, Chhatrasangram, the publishing unit of our West Bengal State Committee had our own stall in the 38th International Kolkata Book Fair 2014, which witnessed intense devotion of our comrades who maintained it, and immense zeal of book-lovers, common students and people. Various books of our publishing house Chhatrasangram, and numerous books on Leftist ideological writings, socio-economic and political issues, and progressive literature of different publishing houses featured the stall. Apart from variety of books, our stall also hosted T-shirts and coffee mugs featuring the photographs and sketches of revolutionary Che Guevara, and Nelson Mandela, which turned out to be very popular among those who thronged our stalls in flocks. Numerous posters, including those with photographs of martyr Com. Sudipto Gupta were present in the stall. Posters and calendars featuring images of Nelson Mandela, Pete Seeger and our martyr Com. Sudipto Gupta were also there for interested people. Two new books were published by Chhatrasangram, the publishing unit of our West Bengal State Committee, in the course of the Book Fair – ‘Chhatro Rajniti’ authored by Com. Moinul Hassan was inaugurated by Com. Biman Bose, Chairman of Left Front and founder-General Secretary of SFI; and ‘Priyo Somnath’ was inaugurated by the author Com. Partha Mukhopadhyay himself, former Secretary, West Bengal State Committee, SFI. 

Overall, throughout the 12 days of the Book Fair, the zeal of the people and students, in particular, has been very encouraging and has increased compared to the previous years.
