Gift of reading from Daman Administration and National Book Trust, India
The UT Administration of Daman & Diu (Directorate of Education and District Panchayat); and National Book Trust, India, recently organized three-day Daman Book Fair, which was inaugurated at Macchi Mahajan Hall, Nani Daman by Suresh Bhai J Patel, Chairman of the Daman Zilla Panchayat. Patel spent considerable time going through the books and interacting with students. PS Jani, CEO District Panchayat, appreciated the variety, quality and content of the books exhibited. On this occasion, Harshit Jain, Director Education, said that it is important to encourage the reading habit among students as it supplements their classroom studies.
An interesting highlight of the book fair was the initiative taken by the UT Administration, where the students visiting the fair with school teachers, could select a book of their choice which was then sponsored by the UT Govt. The UT Administration had invited all schools of the district including Govt. Schools, Govt.-aided Schools as well as Private Schools.
