Indian Language Publishing

This session, on Indian language publishing, will continue our focus on Indian languages and the publishing ecosystem therein. In previous editions, similar discussions have brought into focus the abysmal lack of readership, poor distribution and the absence of translations as some of the reasons that have belied the potential of Indian language publishing. Similarly, it has brought into focus many positive aspects of these markets. This session will focus on the Punjabi, Telugu, Hindi, Santali, and Kannada market, among others. We will focus on the evolution of publishing in these languages, the progress of readership and authorship, translations and the book distribution systems that occur in the case of each language.
