Mamata releases her new book on Nandigram

Firebrand politician and sometime writer Mamata Banerjee is back at the Kolkata Book Fair, this time with her 23rd book. Her latest book, Nandi-Maa, revolves around the Nandigram movement, which catapulted her to the centrestage of Bengal politics.

Her last book, Maa, Maati, Manush (Mother, Land and Humans), a collection of poems, sold over 1,500 copies since its release in last year’s book fair. “We got good response from the readers. Her other books on non-fiction and poems are also doing well with each selling 1,000 copies. Her first book Upalabdhi too did well,” said Sudhanshu Dey, co-owner of Dey’s Publications.
