The Kailash Balani (MD) Interview
Following is an excerpt from the interview Wonder publish conducted with Mr Kailash Balani (MD, Balani Group of Companies) recently:
Q 1: What do you think will become of the publishing industry once the normalcy sets in?
Ans- Well, the publishing industry has always delivered well whether in wars or otherwise or in good times. Even in COVID, publishers have been very generous. Most of the publishers made their content available digitally and created platforms where they could serve communities like universities or individual students.
They have been so generous that in the last few months they have opened up free access to their digital content to all the major institutions in India and in other parts of the world. So publishers have always helped during any such situations, and even now they are helping.
