Bengaluru Book Festival -2018 was inaugurated by noted Kannada author Chandrashekhara Kambara at Palace Grounds on Monday.

The week-long exhibition is a real feast for book lovers. Over 10 lakh books from various publishers from across the state are available at discounted prices.

Manu Baligar, chairman, Kannada Development Authority, said, "Books are an integral part of our culture and it's only by reading them that a man evolves into a person. Books help in the constructive development of the society."

Vasundhara Bhupathi, chairman, Kannada Pustaka Pradikara, said that the festival was being held after a three-year gap.

"The government must help us in organising this festival each year. For the past three years, we were denied permission to hold the expo. It was only after we approached the court in 2015, that we are allowed to hold this festival." The expo will end on October 21st.
