We always aspired to achieve the international standards of book-making. Our tagline ‘Fine Publishing Within Reach’ quite clearly and succinctly recounts our vision to create books which would be a one-place stop on a particular subject. It also is quite representative of the company to disperse knowledge not just through distribution but also working on the memory of its readers.
