Indian publisher Munshi Newal Kishore (1836-1895) published over 5,000 books in Arabic, Bengali, Hindi, English, Marathi, Persian, Punjabi, Pashto, Sanskrit and Urdu in 1858-1885.
To highlight the significant role of this cultural figure in dissemination of Persian language, the Book City Institute, in cooperation with the University of Delhi and the Iranian Embassy in India, will run a two day seminar in February 2017.
The seminar is inviting articles written in Persian or English to navalkishore@ketab.ir and October 21 is the deadline for submission of abstracts. Articles will be accepted until December 5. The articles should not have been published in any book, magazine, newspaper or website, Book House Institute reported. Munshi Newal Kishore is the oldest publication house in India. It has earned the respect of noted scholars and linguists both in and outside India.
