Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 261

Books & Biographies

Niyogi Publishers describe themselves as Fine publishing within reach and this gets confirmed every year end when they send extra-ordinary calendar and brochure. It is when you flip the pages of what they have churned in the year gone by that you realize how prolific they are. Niyogi is one of the few publishers who have made biographies their trade mark.

Their backlist of biographies include awesome titles like Birju Mahraj, Lata Mangeshkar, Nirad Chaudhari, Ruskin Bond, Padmapat Singhania, Rabindranath Tagore, Sarojini Naidu, Saurav Ganguly, Sunil Gavaskar, Zohra Segal to name a few and that is not all their new titles of biographies include Mujibur Rahman, Maulana Azad and most interesting of all Shiv Kumar Sharma and Prakash Padukone.

Besides biographies, the publishing house hasan interesting mix of books on craft, current affairs, essay, history, mythology, fiction, humour, theatre, photography, travel, art , architecture, heritage and even speeches.

Well done Bikas Niyogi I’m truly impressed.
