After the International Kolkata Book Fair shifted from Maidan and started to be held in its permanent venue at Karunamoyee, Salt Lake, not all residents of South Kolkata couldn’t visit the Fair venue regularly. Nababarsha Boi Utsab is being held at South Kolkata to fulfil their demand. There will be interactive sessions on relevant contemporary topics where there will be presence of eminent personalities from different fields. Apart from this, there will be different cultural programs every evening.
