Robert Southey, an English poet of the 19th century of the Romantic age has said ,
“Books are my ever-loving friends.
With whom I converse day by day.”
To enable the friends to come together and to select books of their choice, the Periyar Self Respect Propaganda Institution has been organizing book-fair – Chennai Puthaga Sangamam every year. Access to the Periyar Thidal is easier for the public. This is the 4th time that the book fair has been organized in the Periyar Thidal, Chennai.
