For lovers of books in India and, indeed, in the Indian subcontinent, Rupa is a name reminiscent of the Kolkata based publishing house. In the six decades that it has been around, the house has not only grown in numbers but in esteem as well. Enough to be called an institution today.

Yet the journey had its humblest beginnings way back in 1936. D Mehra, the founder of Rupa & Co, set out on the ambitious journey with the publication of two slim volumes of Bengali poems. Since then, there had been no turning back. Rupa has been publishing books on a variety of subjects ranging from fiction, non fiction, poetry, plays, children's literature, biographies, self-help, religions, philosophy, culture and business management.

It is one of the largest publishers, distributors and importers of books in India with offices in Allahabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.

Bestsellers:



Sham Lal

Indian Realities

Rabindranath Tagore

The publishers have constantly striven to up their standards, always endeavouring to cater to the varying tastes of their readers. Names such as Ruskin Bond, Sunil Gavaskar, Jhumpa Lahiri, Indira Goswami, Bharati Mukherjee, Keki Daruwala, Sitakant Mohapatra, Rajni Kothari and Sham Lal are among those who have contributed to the company's treasure trove.



The company also has a book club, which emphasises the growth of interesting children's literature.
