20 Jan 04 : The 16th Katwa Book Fair started from today. The
fair was inaugurated by Nahera Bibi, a new literate women.

books. We want that new literate persons (under the "Literacy
for Everyone" effort) should take an active interest on books
& the fair. Maybe they will not be able to buy books, but we
want them to come to the fair & interact with books" said
Shri Tushar Pandit, Joint Secretary of the fair.

District Magistrate, Burdwan, Shri Rabindranath Chatterjee,
