Organizer: FICCI and NBTJanuary 7, 2018
As part of New Delhi World Book Fair, NBT in partnership with FICCI organized a panel discussion on ‘India-EU Cooperation in Publishing’. Mr. Vikas Gupta shared his opinion with the fellow panelists and the audience. Highlights of his speech:
1. To strengthen the partnership of publishers from India and EU, there is a need for a global platform to build global quality content which is customized basis reading needs of the country.
2. Fiction, by definition, can not be translated. It has to be re-written to include local colloquial words and slangs. Translation can not bring that. That sort of creative friction between the two languages has to go away and for that, publishers need to collaborate and build a successful business model
