Kokata: The First edition of Apeejay Bengali literary fest in collaboration with Oxford Book Store and Patravarati showcased the importance and relevance of Bengali literature in the minds of people.
Eminent Bengali scholar Sirshendu Mukherjee said, “the Bengali literature will be at its place and globalization will actually help the literature to enrich.” He added “everyday more than 500 words are added in the English literature. Bengali words like adda, dhana have already been added to English literature. With time the language and literature will change but Bengali literature’s relevance will stay forever.”
