The ‘Bangalore Book Festival’ is 4 days old as of today. Still I am going ahead with this post. Every booklover feels very close and attached to this event. Right after buying the entry ticket, I walk around with a sense of belonging at this one event year after year. While designing the above creative, I felt very vibrant seeing the brick red and the wonderful architecture of the City Central Library, Cubbon Park, Bangalore (Photo: courtesy Roshan). I thought this building ought to be associated with the Book Fest.
My family and a few relatives had been to the fest yesterday morning. A list of unread books at home reminded me not to buy a single book. I could control myself for only an hour. At the end of the day, a dozen more books have been added to my list. Going to the exhibition is like going to a temple. And going back home with a few books is like taking the prasada.
Close to 300 stalls. Lakhs of books. Only a pair of hands to browse them. How unfair?
