Floating Book Fair on River Ganges comes to Belur Ghat

eziAssist | , Bally,  Howrah


Heard of any bookfair in the middle of Ganges? It turns out to be a reality. A bookfair on a boat, floating on the river Ganges, is an experience which no one would like to miss.

Well how many of you have experienced it ? We did and it was an awesome experience. On 23rd Jan, 2015 the book fair was on the Belur ferry ghat and thousands of people who came across the ferry ghat got the beautiful experience to attend a book fair on a floating boat.

There are quite a few Book fair organised by various event organisers this winter, but this is one of its own kind. With the help of Mr. Rajib Banerjee the honourable irrigation minister of West Bengal, this initiation had been taken. 

The Belur Ghat section of the floating Book fair was incharged by Mr. Tapas Chakraborty, the librarian of Bally Public Library. The other officials who have worked tirelessly to make this event a grand success are Mr. Tushar Kanti Chatterjee , DLO and Mr. Nishith Sircar.

The book fair was started from the Ramkrishna Ghat at Shibpur and on 23 rd Jan, it reached the Belur ferry ghat. The floating book-fair will end on 25th Jan on Dakhsineswar Ghat. The book fair started with 6000 different books but the enthusiasm showed by the people has made the organisers pile up more books as the event goes on.

Today , 24th Jan the boat with the books will stall on Bagbazar ghat. Anyone who is interested can come in. The event is open to all. There is also a cultural event which goes on on the deck of the boat on top. It is also a great show to watch.

So what are you waiting for, just get there and see this amazing new idea which will definitely create a special corner to the heart of those who experienced it.
