8. Gita Press
The institution, Gita Press, is the very image of the divine resolve which worked as the motivating force for its establishment. With an objective of publishing the spiritual, moral and character-building books and magazines at subsidized prices, out of 1,744 current publications of the Gita Press, 826 are in Sanskrit and Hindi. The rest of the publications are in English and other Indian languages mainly Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannad, Oriya and Bengali. Through these magazines, they mean to inculcate virtuous feelings and other divine traits in people. What we loved was the fact that all such publications were present at the kiosk, neatly bifurcated and as promised, available at lower than its actual cost!
