Apeejay Bangla Sahitya Utsob (ABSU)

Apeejay Bangla Sahitya Utsob (ABSU), India’s first Bangla Literary Festival created by the 100 year old Oxford Bookstore in 2015, honours the rich literary tradition of the Bangla language by making it increasingly visible and accessible, building an audience for Bangla books and creating a culture of readership among the new generation. The Utsob is the pioneer of initiating an interactive platform for the voices of Contemporary Bangla Literature at the national and international stage. ABSU not only showcases all aspects of Bangla literature, literary expressions and its impact on various art forms but also aims to encourage youth and familiarize them with the Bangla language.
