    Dear Bookfair Organizers,

    I appreciate your efforts to organize a book fair every year. I had visited the previous book fairs and I have bought very vauable books. I expect the same this year too.

    • thiru

      I think there is misunderstanding that the book fair is organized by us. Which is not true. Our group do have writers whose historical books are being released this year. And also we are book lovers.

      If the above blog post convey that we are the organizer, please accept my apologies. I will update the post.
