In New Delhi, Polish publishers will also have a chance to learn more about the Indian market. With a population of over 1.2 billion people, India is a huge book market, which is home to nearly 12,000 publishers each year releasing close to 90,000 titles in more than 18 languages.
The inauguration was also attended by India’s President Pranab Mukherjee, and Małgorzata Omilanowska, Undersecretary of State at the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
Poland has prepared two special exhibitions: on children’s literature (“Little Chopin”), and on the life and oeuvre of Ryszard Kapuściński. The latter’s works were especially translated into Hindi with a view to Poland’s prominent role at this year’s fair.

In reaction to the growing interest in Poland, in 2012 the Polish MFA inaugurated a Polish Institute in New Delhi, whose mission is to promote Polish culture in India.
