Technology has played a major role in their lives.” Rajan added, “Digitisation has given the scope for gathering the younger generation for knowledge-seeking activities. We need to inculcate the habit of reading in the younger generation and guide them to dedicate their time to books. In order to do so, it is our duty to ensure that they have first-hand information and access.” The exhibition is open to all from 11 am to 8 pm on all five days, and various cultural and educational activities will be organised at the fair.
