World Book Fair at Delhi in 1982

Shri Nathji visits the World Book Fair at Delhi in 1982 and visits the bookstalls and examines various books on various subjects. He is the Grand Author of all the subjects that exist in the world as he had said in his verse:
“Baandhe hue haathhon ba ummeede ijaazat
Hain kharre sainkarron mazmoon mere aage
“Their hands folded in obedience, awaiting my orders,
Stand all the Subjects of the world in their thousands.”
The bookstalls contained all the books except the ones Shri Nathji had written, which were not meant for the eyes of all and and were given out only to genuinely thirsty souls by HH Priya Nath and Shri Nathji at their home.
Shri Nathji had attended the 5th New Delhi World Book Fair in 1982. It was held at Pragati Maidan and was spread in an area of 21000 square meters. 540 Publishing houses participated in that event.  New Delhi World Book Fair (NDWBF) held for the past 40 years is now a major calendar event in the publishing world. The first New Delhi World Book Fair was held in 1972. The Fair is organised by National Book Trust, India, an apex body of the Government of India, Ministry of Human Resource Development. The logo of  New Delhi World Book Fair (NDWB) is shown Above.
