At the Calcutta book fair, seven of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s books were published, bringing her total to 143.

“I think I will cross the 150 mark in a year in the number of books published. Last year, it was 136 and now it has reached 143. By next year it will be 150,” she said at the inauguration function of the book fair on Thursday.

She claimed that she writes in between her regular tasks, which include signing government documents and working out in the morning.

Apu Dey of Dey’s Publishing told PTI that the most recent novels were “Laho Pronam,” “Charay Charay 2nd Volume,” “Trinamool Storey Trinamooler Joy,” which detailed TMC’s triumph in the 2021 assembly elections, and “Utsab Sabar” (festival for all).

According to Esha Chatterjee of BEE Books, “Build Heritage of Bengal,” an English version of a Bengali book authored by the chief minister about 1850 heritage structures in the state, was also introduced at the book expo.

During the inaugural ceremony, Banerjee gave British High Commissioner Alex Ellis an English translation of her collection of poems, “Kabita Bitan.” After that, Ellis read a few passages from the book.

According to Sudhangshu Dey of Dey’s Publishing, Banerjee is a legendary artist who writes, draws, and composes music.

“There has always been a great demand for her books in every book fair,” he said.
