Sahitya Akademi

Very few Delhiwallas know that there is a paradise for book lovers in Central Delhi which is very near to Connaught Place. It is Sahitya-Akademi, an autonomous organisation of Government of India.
The pictures show a marvellous bookshop which is hard to believe that it is Government owned bookshop. This shop provides flat 20% discount on already subsidized books. The books are generally literary work of par excellence and ranges from regional works translated in Hindi and English and vice-versa and also translated works from world famous languages.
It has state of art library and membership fee is ₹ 250/- for consultation without book borrowing facility and ₹ 1000/- with book borrowing facility.
The Sahitya Akademi publishes three journals; ‘Indian literature’ in English a bimonthly journal, ‘Samakaleen Bhartiya Sahitya’ in Hindi a bimonthly journal and ‘Samskrita Pratibha’ a half-yearly journal in Sanskrit.
Five years back I came to know that these journals are highly subsidized and ‘Samakaleen Bhartiya Sahitya’ which bears a cover price of just ₹ 25/- has a printing cost of ₹ 80/-.
Every year Sahitya Akademi confers an award of ₹ 1,00,000/- to the most outstanding book of literary merit published in any of the major Indian languages recognised by the Akademi.
The Sahitya Akademi offers two fellowships which are:-
1. Dr. Ananda Coomaraswamy Fellowship and
2. Premchand Fellowship
It has regional offices at Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai. Sahitya Akademi’s New Delhi address is:
Rabindra Bhavan, 35, Ferozeshah Road,
New Delhi-110001
Nearest Metro station is Mandi House. So next time if you visit Delhi then please pay a visit to this den of book lovers.
