A smoke, a book, a cup of coffee. These are the little things that get us through this sometimes weary world and all the rainy days.”

Delhi’s iconic bookstore Bahrisons has collaborated with Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters to bring the luxury of peace and quiet reading to the residents of Chandigarh.

Bahrisons has carved a niche for itself in the bookstore space with the perfect ambiance for leafing through stacks of books and engaging in literary banter with bibliophiles. The bookstore is reputed for its attention to detail and for its ability to source any book for its customers, no matter how rare or obscure. The aromatic blends of Blue Tokai premium coffees are set to further enhance the creative boost of ideas, inspiration, and stories.

Tapping into the bureaucratic demographic

The Bahrisons store in Sector 8 Chandigarh is spread over a 4000 square feet area, with 2600 square feet for the book display and another 1500 square feet for storage. It will house a rich and distinctive collection of luxury, architecture, design, fashion, art, and travel apart from literary chart-topping fiction and non-fiction including historical writing, wildlife conservation, politics, and biographies. The store has a dedicated area for children’s and young adult literature, as the owners hold a firm belief that the reading habit must be inculcated in readers from a young age. The café-cum-bookstore will also be home to an extensive dine-in menu, home-brewing equipment, and a wide range of beverages.

Anuj Bahri Malhotra, CEO, Bahrisons Booksellers shared in an exclusive interaction with Indian Printer & Publisher, “Greater Chandigarh is a combination of five cities – Mohali, New Chandigarh, Zirakpur, Gorakhpur and Panchkula. It has a huge bureaucratic demographic with a huge prevalence of good reading habits among its settlers. This is why we zeroed in on Chandigarh to expand the Bahri legacy.”

Bahrisons Chandigarh has already started hosting book signings and author interactions. Manan Kapoor, author of A Map of Longings: Life and Works of Agha Shahid Ali; Rahul Pandita, author of Our Moon Has Blood Clots; author and journalist Barkha Dutt; author and historian Aanchal Malhotra; and Arjun Singh Kadian, author of Land of the Gods: The Story of Haryana have visited the store to promote their work.

“I am overjoyed to bring our humble collection of literature and learning to this beautiful city. Our long-standing partnership with Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters is a reflection of India’s love for coffee and books, and we are very excited to bring this experience to Chandigarh. This café-cum-bookstore is a perfect spot for the creative community of Chandigarh and with our varied book collection, I hope we can enrich the shelves of personal libraries across the city,” Bahri exclaims.

The Bahrisons café-cum-bookstore is located at SCO 14-15, Ground Floor, Madhya Marg (Near Apollo Clinic), Sector 8C. The cafe will be operational from 8:00 am -10:00 pm and the bookstore from 10:30 am – 8:30 pm on all days.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
