Hi Piyush I apologise for the mistake. I came across this piece of information while surfing through a website, where they had by mistake put the dates as '27th Jan-4th Feb 2007' whereas the event was actually held on the same dates but in the previous year i.e. '27th Jan-4th Feb 2006'. Sorry about the same and I must thank the admin dept. of for bringing this discrepancy to my notice. Will try and be more careful in the future. Regards Sarfraz

This is wonderful for to have every indian that 18th world book fair is going on Pragati maidan in Delhi. This is world second largest book fair. This being the 60th death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, books and works on him will find a special space at the fair. A collection of books on the Mahatma from national and international publishers will be exhibited, the audio visual section will feature a catalogue containing information about nearly fifty documentaries filmed by Films Division, Doordarshan and NFDC on Gandhi. Russia will be the guest of honour at this year's fair in view of the year being declared as the 'Year of Russia'. I am really very much thankful to give apportunities to say about world book fair. Regards, RAJESH.S D.E.
