Kendran, a novel in Malayalam, written by Dr Sabu K C was also on display at the fair. “The book has won the attention of Malayalees in Qatar. The feedback on the book from the readers from different walks of life has been very encouraging. Simplicity of the language and style of presentation are aspects recognised by many readers who enjoyed reading Kendran. People other than Malayalees also have shown interest in knowing about this book after reading and listening to the reviews and news reports from the media including radio and newspapers. Some of them, residing in Qatar, even went one step further, asking whether the book was available in English as well,”said Dr Sabu K C.
