An 85-year-old publishing house, Popular Prakashan is a name synonymous with high-quality publishing in both English and Marathi. Having pioneered the fields of social sciences and medical publishing in India, Popular has also carved a reputation for itself in the area of general books and childrenís books. While authors like the sociologist G S Ghurye, the historians D D Kosambi and Romila Thapar, and the political thinker Jayaprakash Narayan have laid the foundations of Popularís social science programme, celebrity authors like Sanjeev Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan, among others, have added a new dimension to its list. Popularís association with Encyclopaedia Britannica, Star Television, Discovery Channel, Chandamama Publications and others has ensured that its books are widely distributed in India and abroad. Its avant-garde list in Marathi, which includes authors like V V Shirwadkar, Vinda Karandikar, Vijay Tendulkar and Gangadhar Gadgil, has given Popular a unique status in Indian literature.
Popular Prakashan has a diverse publishing portfolio across English and multiple Indian languages. We have published over a thousand titles in English and over nine hundred titles in Marathi with significant contribution to Marathi culture and literature. We regularly publish in Hind, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada and Konkani.
Popular Prakashan has offices in Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore.
