S. Vairavan, president of BAPASI, said they had estimated that over 3 lakh people had visited till Tuesday. “There has been a sharp increase in footfalls over the long weekend. We had distributed around 5 lakh complimentary passes to schoolchildren in Chennai, Thiruvallur and Kancheepuram” he said.
The book fair has 160 stalls exclusively catering to children, with books, puzzles and educational CDs and DVDs, the organisers of the fair said. S. Vanitha, a resident of Anna Nagar, who had come to the fair with her eight-year-old son, said that while the fair had a large number of children’s books for sale, many parents chose to focus on buying children’s encyclopedias, puzzle books and educational CDs and DVDs which they chose to buy in person rather than online.
