Hanif Sanket writes two books for Ekushey Book Fair
Popular television host and magazine show ‘Ityadi’ famed Hanif Sanket is also a maverick dramatist, environmentalist and writer. He wears many different hats but writing is something, which comes naturally to him because he likes to use his pen to write about various inconsistencies and discrepancies, which exist in our society with his sharp observation and impeccable sense of humor.
So far, he has written about thirty books including novel, contemporary subjects, etc. This year on Ekushey Book Fair, he has come up with his first travelogue. Titled as ‘Bisshoyer Bishyopothe’ the cover design of the book is done by Masum Rahman.
Hanif Sanket says, Due to professional purposes or personal reasons, I travel far-flung areas of the world. Whenever I fly abroad, ‘Ityadi’ viewers are always on my mind. I try to explore the beauty, history, archeology, and many other interesting facts of the places I visit. Some of them are featured in ‘Ityadi’, some are highlighted in my articles for the newspapers. I have received many requests from the viewers of ‘Ityadi’ to write a travelogue. I hope they will find this book informative and entertaining.’
‘Soth Khojar Poth Khoja’ is another book by Hanif Sanket, which has been published in the book fair. It is a compilation book based on the contemporary issues. The cover design of this book is done by veteran artist Rofiqun Nabi, popularly known as Ronobi. Both the books have been published by the Anyanna Prokashoni.
The books are available at pavilion number four. Both the books cost Tk 130 each.
