The exhibition showcased a blend of modern with the ancient and included a wide range of books on history, geography, culture, tradition, ancient and contemporary literature, science and technology, Islam, Sufism and heritage of the state. Youngsters at the exhibition felt the need of more of such fairs in order to get a glimpse into the rich history and culture of the state which has intrigued people all over. At a time when the internet, a repository of information on the web, has given books a stiff competition, such an exhibition in a bid to inculcate the habit of reading among the young generation is a welcome step.
