To celebrate their five whole years in Kolkata, Crossword is organizig a Children's Calcutta Book Fair in May. A Telegraph article on April 20, 2009 quotes Sidharth Pansari of Crossword on one of the purposes of the book shop being to instill in children "the habit of reading, rather than books". Crossword has a huge section devoted to books for children for this purpose.

Mother's Day in Calcutta / Kolkata | Celebrate - Buy a Gift for your Mom | American Consumerism reaches Bengali Shores

Mother's Day recently passed by. Purses and jewelery from brands like Louis Vuitton saw strong sales. Spa trips were gifted to a few lucky moms. Many more worked till the last minute and then rushed to the mall to buy a Hallmark's card, flowers and perhaps a gift from a store. Mother's day generated about 8% of jewelery sales in the USA in 2008. Americans spent some $2.6 billion on flowers, $1.53 billion on pampering gifts, and $68 million on greeting cards. What exactly is a Mother's Day ? Nothing but a scheme by the store and brand owners to sell more products by blackmailing and labeling those people who confuse love with gift giving in the first place.

But - let us not always be this caustic. Why don't you gift some books, movies and CDs to your Mother ?  Check out some of the great deals on various genuine products we have at WBRi Affiliate Store  and make your mopther happy.
