This year’s floor plan is radically different from the previous years’. Instead of isolated pavilions, this time the stalls are well connected with ample passages in between. Yes, it’s more spacious and dust-free too. This is one of the main reasons that set the Book Fair apart from the other events like the Flower Show where a fixed path is to be followed by the visitors. Once inside the the fair, you can move around freely.
Even when visitors come in large numbers, there is no fuss/rush. People move about and find publishers or books that interests them and stay engrossed. This makes noise and other distractions non-existent.
In all, our Book Fair is a great feel-good event.
See the video below to see what the fair is like this time. Photos follow.
