Business Bureau,

SANJEEV Pendharkar, Director of Vicco Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. recently inaugurated a unique exhibition in Dombivali that included book exchange facility. This was considered to be the first of its kind exhibition in India. The second edition of this exhibition was inaugurated at Tilaknagar Vidyamandir on April 8. Known as Dombivali Granth Pradarshan, this exhibition was organised by the joint efforts of Pai Friends Library, Tilak Nagar Shikshan Prasarak Mandal and Rotract Club of Dombivli Midtown Youth, in association with an organisation called ‘Dombivlikar – Ek Sanskrutik Parivar’.

Though book exchange was fairly common in various European countries, it was unheard of in India. That is why, it had received thunderous response of more than eight thousand people in its inaugural edition and was able to exchange and collect as many as 55 thousand books.

Considering the response of the people, the exhibition was organised again from April 8 to April 15. Inaugurating the exhibition, Sanjeev Pendharkar explained the importance of reading books. Renowned educationist Shivajirao Jondhale graced the occasion as the chief guest.
