BOOK WEEK was celebrated at MBIS between February 27 and March 3, 2017. This was in keeping with this year’s theme ‘United through Books’. In its tenth year now.

The highlight of the week was a visit to the state-of-the-art printing press facility of The Times of India, India’s largest media conglomerate, which facilitated a lively interaction between the senior editorial staff of TOI and the  students.

Rohinton Daruwala, a poet and author,  unravelled the world of science fiction writing at the ‘author session’. Students enjoyed  discussing about aliens and their spaceships.

Students from all homeroom classes participated in poetry recital competition. Poets Pervin Saket and Anand Menon did a commendable job as the jury.

One of the main attractions at the competition was the Korean choir, and their amazing singing and equally impressive music.   Loads of enjoyment was witnessed at the grand finale,  ‘Dress like a Book Character’,

The take home from this year’s BOOK WEEK was the need to help those who do not have access to books.
