We attended the world's biggest book fair on Tuesday, Oct. 3 in the German city of Frankfurt. The guest of honor this year was India, and the country pulled out all the stops to showcase its thriving literary and cultural scene. Some 70 of the country's most acclaimed writers, including Amitav Ghosh, Amit Chaudhuri and Kiran Desai, presented their works.
The event drew more than 7,000 exhibitors from 111 countries and some 280,000 visitors. It was a great experience and an invaluable networking platform for Rimal this year. We had established new relationships with several international companies and publishers and developed new friendships with entities in India.
