A day filled with excitement and joy – Dussera celebration at Popular Prakashan

Leave a comment

And it was a regular day at Popular Prakashan. Guess what’s cooking this Diwali? For one, well-known gourmet chef Asha Khatau was at our office earlier that day for intense discussions with the editorial team. In between putting the final touches for her new book, taking decision on photographs and approving the layout, there were huge bursts of laughter. Have a look at the epic moment.

Dussera is considered an auspicious start to new ventures according to Maharastrians; so what better way than having Entertaining with Asha Khatau in the fore? If you’re planning a party this is the book you need to invest in.

Post that, we began thinking of various ways to decorate our office. In the midst of work enthusiastic team members took time off to decorate the entrance with a rangoli of marigold leaves and flowers. The Puja set was in place. Mr. Ramdas Bhatkal – Managing Director of Popular Prakashan Pvt. Ltd popularly known as Baba – performed Puja devoted to Saraswati Devi and Laxmi Devi, while the entire Popular Prakashan family joined him. Since Apta leaves represent prosperity and good life, they were exchanged amongst each other with festive wishes for prosperity.

All in all it was a fruitful and exciting day. Sharing some moments captured. 

More soon; stay tuned!

An 85-year-old publishing house, Popular Prakashan is a name synonymous with high-quality publishing in both English and Marathi. Having pioneered the fields of social sciences and medical publishing in India, Popular has also carved a reputation for itself in the area of general books and children’s books. While authors like the sociologist G S Ghurye, the historians D D Kosambi and Romila Thapar, and the political thinker Jayaprakash Narayan have laid the foundations of Popular’s social science programme, celebrity authors like @SanjeevKapoor and @AmitabhBachchan, among others, have added a new dimension to its list. Popular’s association with Encyclopaedia Britannica, Star Television, Discovery Channel, Chandamama Publications and others has ensured that its books are widely distributed in India and abroad. Its avant-garde list in Marathi, which includes authors like V V Shirwadkar, Vinda Karandikar, Vijay Tendulkar and Gangadhar Gadgil, has given Popular a unique status in Indian literature.
