May 2018: ‘Gita Publishing House’ (GPH), Pune exhibited this year yet again a successful show and thus another milestone surpassed with flying colors at the London Book Fair 2018 held last fortnight in Olympia, UK. GPH displayed an array of valuable book titles and met with Publishers, authors and readers.
GPH, with a perfectly set corner booth drew much attention from attendees and the local press. The Fair was abuzz with activity and one could feel the intellectual vibrations in the atmosphere with live book reading and poetry renditions at various locations of the exhibition. Amidst all these well read globe trotters, often the name of the humble and much revered author J.P. Vaswani was inquired upon and many of his books on display were picked up out of curiosity and the titles brought a twinkle in the reader’s eyes. GPH has successfully spread the name of J.P. Vaswani on a global level with their earnest, dedication and persistence. This is a self Publishing House that labors tirelessly to publish the writings of the Revered Guru of millions, who himself requests to be considered as a ‘Guru of none, disciple of all’. This is also the title of one of the biographies of J.P. Vaswani.
At the exhibition the dynamic GPH team which included followers and readers of J. P. Vaswani’s teachings from all over the world, interacted with publishers also from various countries who have embraced the combined wisdom of Mind, Spirit and Body and were scouting for fresh writings on this subject. It was also to be noted that one publisher who had been in the business of Banking and Financial books and earned much acclaim for 20 years had had a spiritual awakening a year ago and she came with the interest in J. P. Vaswani’s writing on subject for uplifting women.
Interested publishers from Turkey, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania besides U.K. visited the GPH booth, in back to back meetings and went back with satisfied collection of sample readings soon to be published in these foreign languages. It is very encouraging to see the western world readers enthusiastic about Eastern philosophy and beloved Dada’s teachings, as J.P. Vaswani is lovingly called by his followers.
As J.P. Vaswani completes a remarkable 100 years this August his teachings touch the lives of millions all across the globe in a celebration towards his centennial year on Earth. A gifted writer with profound knowledge of the Universe, he has dedicated his life to serving people with lessons and tips on how to deal with daily life obstacles and overcome them amicably, advising readers to take each experience as a learning and to gain valuable tools from life. He has given his readers a fresh perspective to view instances more in depth and to discover happiness which lies within each one of us as was the experience of the volunteers at the fair.
