NEW DELHI, MARCH 3. Adding a whole new "chapter'' to the literary culture of Delhi University's North Campus, the Vice-Chancellor, Deepak Nayyar, today inaugurated "U-Special'', a bookshop that will double up as a cultural hub to host literary events, debates and discussions.
And if the inaugural event was anything to go by, the new bookshop at the University Students' Centre will clearly act as more than just a place for students interested in books.
To set the mood for the occasion, two plays were staged as part of the opening ceremony. While "Bade Bhaisaab'', based on Munshi Premchand's novel, was performed by Jan Natya Manch, Kirori Mal College's theatre group "The Players'' staged the play "Hawalaat''.
Being set up by the Independent Publishers Group, a partnership project of 12 small and medium-sized Delhi-based publishers and distributors, U-Special will not just act as a source of books but also as a platform for debates and discussion on academic issues.
Although starting with just English and Hindi books, the shop will soon keep books in other languages too.
It is open to not just students and teachers of the University but also other local residents and visitors to the campus area.
