ON JAN­UARY 9, the day pre­ced­ing the World Hindi Day (Jan­uary 10), Niyogi Books launched its lat­est im­print ‘Bahu­vachan’, ded­i­cated to the Hindi ti­tles. Through this new im­print, the at­tempt was to cel­e­brate the state lan­guage Hindi – which is not only one among the most spo­ken lan­guages in In­dia, but also a global lan­guage to­day.

Bahu­vachan en­deav­ours to fur­ther con­sol­i­date the pub­lish­ing house’s ethos of bring­ing fine pub­lish­ing within reach.

The first 12 books, which have been brought out in this im­print are il­lus­trated ti­tles of in­ter­na­tional stan­dard, with which its in­tended to take Hindi books to the global mar­ket. The shorlisted books which range across di­verse sub­jects, in­clud­ing bi­ogra­phies, travel, food, and cul­ture in­clude ‘Antarc­tica: Bharat ki Hi­mani Ma­had­wip ke liye Ya­tra’, ‘Apne Bach­chon ko Kaise Khi­layen? (Aur Iska Luft Lein)’, ‘Avadh ke Zaike: Shahi Dawat se Ghar ki Ra­soi Tak ka Sa­far’, ‘Bhar­tiya Shas­triya Nritya’, ‘Bis­mil­lah Khan: Ba­naras ke Us­tad’, ‘Da­gar va Dhru­pad: Divya Vi­rasat’, to name a few.

On launch­ing the im­prints, Dr Karan Singh, In­dian politi­cian, phi­lan­thropist, poet, and a mem­ber of the

Ra­jya Sabha, said: “I love all lan­guages. My mother tongue Do­gri, my na­tional

lan­guage Hindi, and my of­fi­cial lan­guage English. I would re­quest you all to not dis­ap­prove of any lan­guage, but rather be sup­port­ive of all. A good book is the

lifeblood of civ­i­liza­tion.” He also ex­pressed his re­grets on the grad­ual dis­ap­pear­ance of the read­ing cul­ture amongst chil­dren and young­sters, who are so en­grossed in gad­gets to­day that they have lost their learn­ing skills. Bikash De Niyogi, MD, Niyogi Books stated, “With this ini­tia­tive, we aim to take the lan­guage to greater heights.”

The pub­li­ca­tion house started 2018 with launch­ing three new im­prints to pi­geon­hole their di­verse sub­jects and gen­res of pub­li­ca­tion in Jnauary it­self. And, com­ing to­wards Au­gust, they

launched the first sig­na­ture book­store in Kolkata.
